When someone says your skin is all about your genes, I get very upset. My mother never had a pimple in her life, she doesn’t have any visible pores, unnecessary facial hair or blackheads, and she even glows from afar! And here I stand, her offspring, with ALL the skincare woes you can think of and more. Skincare is more than your genes – its about regular care and nourishment.
Enter: Actual, habitual skincare regimes. A basic cleansing, toning, moisturizing and sun protection can work miracles on your skin if done right. How to get it right? Be punctual with it so you never miss and find the right set of products that suit your skin perfectly.
We’ve found a potful of good luck for your skin with The Natural Wash (TNW) – a label that promises all natural, organic, vegan and chemical-free formulas that will care for your skin. They have even made our lives easier by curating the perfect regime that you will fall in love with. Thank us later!
Why this product: This gentle and aromatic face wash doesn’t just cleanse your face by removing dirt and pollutants, but its hero ingredients grapeseed extracts, niacinamide and orange peel tackles various skin problems like pigmentation, tanning and oil control.

How to use: Use it as is and dab with a cotton swab onto your skin. Or you can even make this a base to your weekly face masks. Use this right before you moisturize.
Why this product: Serums are face essentials. They allow the ingredients to seep into your skin better than lotions or moisturizers. This hydrating serum is packed with the goodness of Vitamin C and Hyaluronic acid that will enhance the brightness of your skin and nourish it from inside out. Best part: it is jampacked with natural moisturizers like mulberry, tomato and carrots extracts as well.
How to use: Apply 2-3 drops of the serum on your face and massage it in till it seeps in. You can use it a few minutes after your toner.

The formula is designed with all the skin-loving things you can think of including cooling cucumbers, aloe vera, jojoba oil, vitamin E, saffron and licorice. You NEED a finger-full of this SPF 50 sunscreen every time you step out of the house. Say goodbye to sunburns, tans and any other deep tissue damage can by the sun.
How to use: Once your CTM regime is done, use a finger full of this sunscreen and massage it in. Wait for it to soak in completely before you apply makeup or step out.
Why this product: In a hurry to finish our routine, we often forget to care for our delicate lips. They need to be hydrated and nourished a lot more than our faces, but we usually skip the skincare they need and move to lipsticks or any other colours. This rich blend of butter, oils and herbs will make your lips healthy and supple.
How to use: Use every morning before using your lipstick and every night before you go to bed.
