Want to get that glowing healthy skin but clueless about how to start your skin-care routine? Don't have either time or energy to go through an extensive skin-care regime?
The skin-care market has boomed in recent years with growing demand, and there are infinite combinations of ingredients and formulations. Not to worry, we have got you covered with this simple and minimal skin-care routine which is easily doable (with product recommendations).
1. Cleanse -
Use a gentle cleanser to cleanse your face at least twice, once in the morning and once at night. If you have dry skin you can use plain water in the morning, but the night cleansing is a MUST!
It is very important to remove the dirt, oil, sweat, dead skin cells, that get accumulated on the skin. If you are confused as to which cleanser to use, whether the one for oily skin or the one for sensitive skin. Use a HYDRATING CLEANSER, which is good for any type of skin.

2. Exfoliate -
It is necessary to remove dead skin cells, oil, dirt, from the skin regularly. Exfoliation does that, but it should be restricted to 2-3 TIMES a week. It helps to clear the skin so that it can absorb moisturizers and sunscreen more effectively.

3. Moisturize -
Moisturization is a VITAL part of the skin-care routine, whether you have dry, oily, acne-prone, or sensitive skin. Go for an oil-free, fragrance-free, with a minimum number of ingredients preferably.
It should contain ingredients like HYALURONIC ACID, VITAMIN C, VITAMIN E, and CERAMIDES. Even dry skin requires moisturizing and without it, the skin would dry out.

4. Sunscreen -
Sunscreen isn't just to protect you from sunlight when you are out in the sun. It's also essential to protect yourself from the harmful UV rays that can penetrate inside. It's a MYTH that sunscreen should only be worn when traveling outside.
But it shouldn't be any sunscreen or sunscreen mixed with moisturizers and foundations. Opt for a separate sunscreen with a minimum value of SPF 30.

5. Anti-aging product -
Anti-aging products aren't to hide your age or make you look younger. It helps to REPAIR THE DAMAGE caused by environmental pollutants.
The most easily available and most beneficial product is RETINOL, which you can buy from any drugstore. It has gained immense popularity recently. People have seen the results after using it for a while and even dermatologists highly recommend it.
