Skincare Routine for Women in Cost Effective and Natural Way

There are several meanings for the phrase "natural skin care." There is no industry-wide regulation of the "natural" label. This implies that each business may determine for themselves what "natural" means.

 Vocabulary needed!

 Here are some factors to think about while selecting a new product.

 What is the source of the product?

 The first thing you should do is ask yourself this. What exactly does it include and where did it originate from, in other words? Is it a natural source, such as one found in plants, animals, minerals, or the ocean? Alternatively, is it made from petrochemicals?

 Naturally-occurring:Ingredients utilised in these items are those that naturally exist and haven't been altered in any way. Natural ingredients include things like raw honey and crushed flowers.

Nature-identical: Chemically identical to those found in nature, the ingredients in nature-identical goods are created in a lab. Sorbic acid is a case in point. Sorbic acid, which was initially obtained from rowan berries, is now frequently used as a natural substitute for other ingredients.

Synthetic: This phrase refers to components that were produced and processed in a laboratory and is at the extreme end of the range. One such instance is the widespread preservative parabens. Cosmetics and skin care items may be found at a reliable source.

 How is it handled?

 Ingredients are not necessarily processed organically just because they are sourced naturally. It is possible to physically or chemically process ingredients.

  • Physically processed indicates that the molecular make-up or structure is unchanged.

  • Chemical processing refers to a change in the molecular structure or content.

 Raw, unprocessed oils and butters are examples of naturally sourced yet physically processed ingredients. These are treated using techniques like filtering or cold pressing.

Castor wax is an illustration of a naturally produced yet chemically processed substance. It is a plant wax made from castor beans. It is made by hydrogenating pure castor oil, which is the process of adding hydrogen to castor oil.

 How to Properly Layer Products in Your Skincare Routine

 There is no one "perfect" order for a skin-care routine, but there is undoubtedly an ideal technique to apply your products. The method you layer your selected products has a significant influence on how well they perform, regardless of whether you're a minimalist who loves to adhere to a three-step regimen or the kind of individual who is prepared to go through 11 stages every day in search of glass skin. This order gets more crucial the more product-focused you are.

There is a rhyme or reason as to why cleaning occurs first, serum follows moisturiser, and sunscreen is applied last.Understanding this sequence helps guarantee that your favourite skin-care products function as intended. After all, no one really wants to spend money on a high-end serum just to waste it due to improper use.

 Morning skincare routine


This should be done first every morning and every night. Apply a facial cleanser gently in circular strokes. Towel dry after rinsing. The finest face cleanser to choose is one that has vitamins that are good for the skin, such as vitamin A, vitamin B2, vitamin B12, and vitamin E.


Exfoliants shouldn't be used every day. Use them instead 1–3 times a week to get rid of dead cells without irritating the skin. Apply exfoliants for 30 seconds at a time, similar to how you would a cleanser, and then rinse with warm water.

Simply omit this step on days that you don't exfoliate.


Among the most frequently omitted stages in skin care is toner. Your skin may be rebalanced, its pores can be made tighter, and pollutants can be removed. Clarifying toners might assist in pH rebalancing for your skin. Peach extract and grape seed extract are a few examples from nature. Additionally, you could consider speaking with a dermatologist about vitamin E, ginseng root, and other antioxidants since some studies think they could possibly help alleviate the skin darkening known as melasma.

 4. Moisturizing

The main components to seek for in moisturisers are ceramides. They aid in hydrating and protecting the skin's protective layer.

Look for phytoceramides, which are ceramides originating from plants, in particular. These waxy lipids, which are present naturally in skin and aid in retaining moisture,

Because of its possible anti-inflammatory, antifungal, and antioxidant characteristics, jojoba oil is another excellent moisturising component that promotes regeneration and shields against environmental stresses, claims a 2021 review by Trusted Source.

In a sense, serums are advanced moisturisers. They deeply penetrate the dermal layers to deliver active substances. Apply a few drops of serum on your forehead, chin, nose, and cheeks.

 5. Sun protection 

Daily use of sun protection SPF is advised for everyone aged 6 months and older. Chemical sunscreens may not be as environmentally friendly as mineral sunscreens. Additionally, dermatologists frequently advise people with sensitive skin. Tinted sunscreens may be beneficial despite the fact that mineral sunscreens may create a white cast on the skin, which is more apparent on darker skin.

Pro tip: Use the lightest liquids first while applying creams. As an illustration, serum, moisturiser, then SPF.

Night time skincare regime

1. Repeat the morning ritual.

Just don't remember to wear sunscreen.

 2. Eye cream

The most delicate portion of your face and one of the earliest places to wrinkle up is the skin around your eyes.The components in eye creams are frequently the same as those in conventional moisturisers, although they frequently include less irritating compounds. 

 Give your lotions extra time to absorb into your skin with gentle pressure. This promotes the formation of collagen and aids in facial muscle strengthening. Additionally, you can use your ring finger to apply eye lotions; doing so may help prevent unintentional tears on this naturally delicate area of skin.

 3. Nighttime moisturiser

Your skin's regeneration process can be effectively supported by using a night cream.

Masking time!

Once or twice a week you can take out some time to use face masks. This can help skin to deeply cleanse, rejuvenate, hydrate and soothe (depending on the type of mask you are using)

 A bonus DIY mask for you

 Clarifying oatmeal mask

 With the help of apple cider vinegar and powdered oats, this mask balances the pH of the skin while eliminating excess oil and buildup.


  • 3 tablespoons ground oats

  • Apple cider, 1/4 teaspoon

  • Lemon juice, 1/4 tablespoons

  • 1/2 a cup of brown sugar


  • Make a paste by combining apple cider and ground oats.

  • Stir until combined before adding the brown sugar and lemon juice.

  • Apply for five to ten minutes on well washed skin.

  • In a circular movement, rub.

  • Use warm water to rinse.


 Give it some time

Although skin care technology has advanced significantly, there is still no such thing as a fast cure; you must give skin care products time to work before you can see results. Only by using it consistently will you notice effects. Generally, in order to see an improvement, try using a product for at least 6 weeks, either once or twice a day.
