Maintaining Skin Care Routine
Following CTOM as part of your skincare routine is essential to maintain healthy skin. Use a mild or gentle cleanser that cleanses your skin but does not strip natural oils from your skin. A toner makes your skin look hydrated and it also wipes out impurities making your skin softer and supple. Face oil helps give a glow to your skin and makes your look fresh and healthy. Last and not the least, moisturise your skin with a moisturiser that suits your skin to provide maximum hydration to the skin.
Applying a face mask once in a week helps your skin look relaxed, rejuvenated, and refreshed. The process of drying of the face pack on your skin when kept for 15-20 minutes causes an expansion of the blood vessels in your skin. This in turn helps your skin to look smooth, radiant and refreshed.
