A. Argan oil

Argan oil helps moisturize your skin without clogging the pores, leaving the skin soft and supple. It is sometimes used to treat skin diseases.

B. Blackheads

The formation of blackheads is the result of clogged pores in the skin. Blackheads are a sign of unhealthy and unclean skin.

C. Clean-ups!

A regular monthly clean-up is a must to maintain a healthy and glowing skin. [1]

D. Dimethicone

It is a form of silicone found in oil-free MOISTURISERs. It hydrates the skin without making it oily or greasy.

E. Exfoliation

Exfoliation helps get rid of dead skin cells and brings out new healthy skin. [2]

F. Facials


A facial once in 3 months is a great way of taking care of your skin as it includes a combination of massage, cleansing, scrubbing and face masque.

G. Glycerin

Glycerin is a natural moisturizer. Soaps with glycerin as an ingredient are the best in winters to avoid dry skin.

H. Hydrating face masque

The use of a hydrating face masque for your skin every 2 weeks, no matter what your skin type is, will work wonders for you!

I. Ingredients

Make sure you are aware of the ingredients contained in the beauty products you use. Ensure that the product does not contain any ingredient that your skin is allergic to.

J. Jojoba oil

Jojoba oil is another agent that hydrates the skin without clogging pores.

K. Kaolin

Kaolin masques have been traditionally used as a detox and cleansing agent. It is one of the main ingredients in many beauty products.

L. Lines and Wrinkles


Lines and wrinkles cause the skin to age sooner than it must. Keep your skin hydrated to avoid fine lines.

M. Moisturiser

A moisturiser is a must-have and moisturising is a must to maintain a healthy and hydrated skin. Moisturisers contain emollients, occlusives and humectants in varying combinations. They spread a protective film on the skin and help it retain its moisture.

N. Natural remedies

Natural and chemical-free Do-it-yourself remedies work well for skincare. You can find a number of magic ingredients in your own kitchen!

O. Oil massage

Oil massage is very good for the skin. It increases elasticity and prevents the formation of wrinkles and fine lines.

P. Petroleum Jelly

Petroleum Jelly has several uses in skincare. From moisturising to make-up removal, petroleum jelly can be used for several purposes.

Q. Quick fix kits

Concealers, calamine and BB creams are quick fix options for urgent occasions.

R. Regime

Maintain a skincare regime. Cleanse-Tone-Moisturise and you’re good to go!

S. Sunscreen

Sunscreen is a must; apply it 15 minutes before you step out in the sun. Make sure the sunscreen you use is a minimum of SPF15 to prevent the penetration of harmful UVA/UVB rays.

T. T-zone

The T-zone is the area of your forehead, nose and chin, which usually secretes more oil and is prone to whiteheads and blackheads. Make sure you use a toner after cleansing, which tightens the pores and prevents clogging.

U. UVA/UVB rays

UVA/UVB rays are extremely harmful to the skin. Make sure you protect yourself from these by using a proper sunscreen.

V. Vitamins

Increase your vitamin intake. Nothing like eating healthy for great skin! Vitamins play an important role in maintaining a healthy skin.

W. Water

Water is undeniably important in keeping you hydrated. Drink plenty of water, as it is a natural detox agent.

X. eXtra care

Extra attention given to your skin by taking extra care while eating the right foods can work wonders in maintaining not just good skin but also good shape and overall health.

Y. Youthful attitude

You look young when you feel young! You are as old as you feel you are. So, have a youthful attitude and turn that clock backwards!

Z. Zzzzz

Good sleep is as important for your skin as it is for your overall health. Make sure your body gets an ample measure of rest.
