If you’re that girl who smirks at the sight of countless skincare products on your best friend's vanity and often forgets to do their basic CTM, then this is for you dear. Through skincare doesn't mean that you have to follow tedious steps. We all know a balanced and quick daily skincare regime is a good idea. But with so many moisturizers, lotions and serums, it’s hard to know where to start.
We get it, nobody wants to spend hours in the bathroom but hey, Quench brings a basic skincare regime that works well for AM and PM. Wondering how we can bring our A-game in skincare? Just follow basic and easy steps listed below so that your skin can reap the full benefits of every product.
- Step 1: Start with a clean canvas
The first step to getting glowing and healthy skin is to master the art of cleansing. The moment you wake up you need to wash your face with an effective cleanser or a face wash as it helps to get rid of all dirt, bacteria and dust particles that settle on the skin at night. Also, having clean skin helps other skincare products to seep deep well and provide better results.
Quench Recommends: Bravocado Pollution Rescue Cream Face Wash deep cleanses your skin and removes excess oil, impurities from pores. Enriched with anti-pollution shield moringa seed, this formula lathers gently to hydrate and repair leaving you with a clearer-looking and smoother complexion.
- Step 2: Use a pore-tightening essence
Essence is meant to hydrate, balance your skin’s pH level and moisturize skin after you are done cleaning. The skin will feel soothed and ready to absorb the next set of face treatment products and nutrient-boosting ingredients.
Quench Recommends: Mama Cica Intense Oil Control Essence is one such star product that provides you with adequate hydration. With a perfect blend of cica, sea buckthorn and peony root extracts, this quick absorbing formula intensely hydrates, enhances skin texture and controls breakouts and blackheads.
- Step 3: Add a serum to your skincare routine
Does your skin need something extra? We are talking about serums— yes boosters for your skin. They work as skincare saviors that contain active ingredients that help in boosting your skin. These are lightweight formulas with a high concentration of ingredients that target a certain skin type or skin concern and therefore are meant to be absorbed at a deeper level. If you haven’t invested in a nourishing serum, go for it as within just a few days, you’ll start to notice the skin transmitting a luminescent glow.
Quench Recommends: If your skin is feeling dehydrated and lacking radiance, try our star product– Chialeader Zit Fix Serum. Powered by acne-busting natural ingredients like chia seed, cactus water, bamboo, rosemary leaf oil and tea tree leaf water, it helps to unclog pores, soothe damaged skin and keeps skin shine-free.
- Step 4: Keep your skin nourished
Moisturizing is one such step that is non-negotiable. It helps to protect your skin from loosing moisture while keeping it plump and soft. Look for a hydrating moisturizer that has key ingredients like vitamin E, ceramides, hyaluronic acid and glycerin to soothe and repair your skin barrier.
Quench Recommends: Chialeader Oil Control Moisturizer is an ultra-light moisturizer that will leave your skin smooth and supple as it comes wrapped with the goodness of skin-loving ingredients such as bamboo water, cactus and chia seed. Say hello to glowing, healthy and radiant skin!
Don’t forget! Every morning, finish off your skincare routine with a broad spectrum sunscreen that includes SPF of atleast 30.
- Step 5: Few essentials to keep your skin bright
Ok we get it, they are not a part of your daily skincare regime but some additional steps at least once a week will give your skin extra nourishment and glow. A deep cleansing clay mask is ideal if your skin is oily—plus it will help shrink the pores and absorb dirt, impurities and dead skin cells.
Quench Recommends: A luxurious blend of kaolin and bentonite clay, Mon Cherry Brightening Pink Clay Mask purifies your skin, removes excess impurities, unclog your pores and leaves your skin brighter and smoother.
- Is another step an exfoliation, you ask?
An exfoliator packed with natural ingredients helps gently buff away dead skin to reveal brighter skin underneath. It also helps your serums and moisturisers to work better. You can use a manual exfoliant like a scrub to get rid of dirt, grime and impurities or opt for chemical exfoliators like alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) and beta hydroxy acids (BHAs). AHAs — like glycolic acid, dissolve all dead skin and unclog pores to reveal oil-free skin. Try our Mama Cica Instabright Peel Pads that are formulated using a unique blend of glycolic acid and natural papaya extracts to gently exfoliate the skin, promote cell renewal and give you clearer-looking, spotless and smooth skin. You can also opt for Yuzu Fine 2-in-1 Vitamin C Scrub and Clay Mask that comes packed with gentle exfoliating ingredients like yuzu super fruit, ascorbic acid and apricot seed powder to unclog pores, remove tan, dead skin and impurities instantly and makes skin brighter. For brighter glow, you could also try the unique Yuzu Fine Brightening Peeling Gel that has active natural ingredients like mandarin peel oil, strawberry, blueberry and raspberry fruit extracts to lighten spots, blemishes, promote even skin tone and protect skin from sun damage.
BHAs like salicylic acid work well for oily and acne prone skin better. These help in removing tan, pigmentation and smoothen out wrinkles. Some of Quench skincare bestsellers with salicylic acid are: Mon Cherry Dirt Dissolving Cleansing Balm (great for double cleanse!), Chialeader Shine Control Face Wash and Chialeader Zit Fix Serum.
