Beginner’s Guide! Steps and Remedies For A Skin Kindness Regime

When you  step into  the world of skincare for the first time, finding the right products can be a daunting task. It can get overwhelming to come across a new product every day, a new trend every week, and a new brand occasionally. We are far from traditional skincare, where there was a single solution to multiple problems. Being kind to your skin is the first step in this endeavour, and here’s a guide to help you create your own skin care regime with kindness.

Know Your Skin Type And Build A Daily Skin Care Regime

What do we mean by skin type? There’s the normal skin type, which is balanced and clear, and then there’s four other types of skin. Here’s a bifurcation to help you understand which one is yours.

Skin type

Attributes or symptoms

Dry skin

Scales, flakiness, dryness, skin that is rough to touch

Oily skin

Glistening shine, greasiness, visible pores on the skin

Combination skin

Combining dry and oily – some parts on the face are dry, like the cheeks, while the forehead, nose, and chin are oily

Sensitive skin

Stinging feeling, itchiness, and burns are experienced when a product or surrounding does not sit well with the skin

If you still require some assistance, you can refer to our guide on how to identify your skin type at home. Once you know your skin type, kickstarting the creation of your skin care routine gets easier. Some skin types need light skincare like a light face wash or a light body lotion, while others demand more in the regimen.

Be Kind To Your Skin: A Skincare Guide Of Kindness

Taking care of your skin is more than just a day’s work. You are investing in how you want to look, feel, and present yourself to the world. Putting in the effort, with determined goals, requires you to give your skin a few minutes in the morning and evening. In this skin care guide, we’ll show you the basic beginner’s guide to light skincare. The results could be a game changer for you if you follow the routine correctly. 

  • Cleansing – The first and most important step is washing off the impurities and dirt from your face to clean your pores. With a silicone-free, paraben-free, and natural, light face wash, you can say goodbye to pimples, blackheads, and enlarged pores. Try this 100% vegan, Ayurvedic face cleanser for blemish-free, and revitalised skin – Coco Soul Face Wash. Here’s what makes it the best option:

  • The goodness of Ayurvedic ingredients like neem, gotukola, and virgin coconut oil gives your face a boost of antioxidants and other nourishing compounds that leave your skin looking fresh and radiant.

  • The face wash is certified by MadeSafe®, which makes it completely safe for use. It is also a product that is not tested on animals and is cruelty-free.

  • Whether you're dealing with oily, sensitive, or dry skin, a quick application of this natural face wash will leave your skin in a state of bliss. For an even better face washing experience, you can learn how to correctly wash your face using these tips.

  • Serums – An antioxidant-rich product, a serum is your secret weapon to winning the battle against acne, fine lines, and wrinkles. They are the brightening, hydrating dose of efficacy your skin needs throughout the day.

  • Moisturiser – The whole routine can fall apart if you miss this step.
    Moisturising your skin is the way you lock in the hydration, no matter what your skin type is. Even if you have oily skin, there are moisturisers that hydrate your skin, balancing the pH levels and not adding more oil to it.

  • Sunscreen – Whether you’ve tried it or stayed away from it, we recommend getting sunscreen lotion or cream with a sun protection factor or SPF of 30 – this is the bare minimum to protect your skin from the harmful UV rays of the sun. If you combine this step with the one before it, you can get yourself a light body lotion with a built-in SPF.

Show Your Skin Kindness: 4 DIY Skin Remedies

After you’ve identified the steps to a skin kindness regime, there’s just one  element left now – the ingredients. When you build an all-new skincare regime, you want to use easily available ingredients in DIY recipes or nature-inspired skincare products. It is the safest, kindest, and conscious path to nourishing your skin. Here are four remedies you can include in your regimen:

  1. Honey and cinnamon mask – If your skin is prone to acne, and you want to use your pantry staples for moisturisation, honey and cinnamon are your best bet. These ingredients are your power killers of the bacteria that causes acne. Make a mask using one tablespoon of cinnamon, mixed with three tablespoons of honey, and the mixture heated in the microwave for 30 seconds. Apply the homemade mask on your face and let it stay for ten minutes. Now, rinse it off, and pat it dry with a towel.

  2. Turmeric can do wonders – The age-old phrase in most Indian households goes like, ‘put some haldi to get that instant glow!’, and we agree. Turmeric or ‘haldi’ contains properties of anti-inflammation and is considered as a natural antioxidant. Tan removal, skin brightening, quick lustre, skin revival – you name it, turmeric can do it. It can be used in a paste with curd and lemon, for any skin type.

  3. Tomato juice is effective – Nobody likes to see visible  or enlarged pores. Tomato works like an astringent and reduces your open pores, as well as your blackheads. Either mix the juice of tomatoes with lemon drops and apply it to your face or massage the affected areas of your face with sliced tomatoes.
     Milk & Honey
  4. Milk plus honey is magical Say hello to younger-looking, glowing skin with a mask of honey and milk. Easily available in your kitchen, these two ingredients, when mixed, can act like a light face wash, face scrub, and a face mask. Vitamin A and lactic acid in milk, along with honey, can make your skin smooth, soft and nourished. This is truly a flawless face combo!

Talking about a Flawless Face Combo, Coco Soul too has something in store for you -  a face wash and scrub duo that will give you the epitome of nourishment – especially if you have sensitive skin. This combo has products that do not contain silicones, chemicals, or paraben.
