Beauty tips for exfoliating:

Just cleansing and moisturizing regularly will not work any magic on the skin unless you clear and remove the dead skin time to time.

Once a week is a must and if your skin type demands more like with oily skin, then do it as many times as necessary.

Beauty tips for Toning:

“Is toning really important when I actually cleanse and moisturize my skin regularly? “ this is very frequently asked question.

Yes! Toning is an important element of the cleansing process. A good toner will remove all the remaining bits of oil, dirt and debris left behind by the cleanser.  More importantly, toner will help soothe, nourish and hydrate the skin while restoring its delicate pH balance.

Beauty tips for Moisturizing:

Whatever your skin type maybe it shouldn’t stop you from moisturizing your skin regularly. Moisturizing plays a vital role in skin care keeping it hydrated and preventing it from redness or flaking if you have dry skin. It also helps you from early signs of aging. If you have oily skin, it doesn’t mean that your skin gets enough nourishment from the produced oil. This is a very common misconception. Pick a good gel based moisturizer and use it well.
