Cleansing is the first step in CTM routine which removes all the dirt and grime off your face.More or less all of us follow this part at least but make sure since you have dry skin always opt for mild and soap free cleansers or face wash which will cleanse you face without making it dry further.

You can use one of the following cleansers.Both of them are very mild and apt for dry skin

  • Cataphil gentle cleanser
  • Lakme gentle and deep pore cleanser.

Apply cleanser on your face and neck and massage gently for a minute then wipe off with cotton or you can choose to rinse it off with plain water.

If you want to use a face wash for cleaning again mind it ,It need to soap free and gentle which not only washes your face but keeps it moisturized without making your face too dry.

Once you are done with this step -You can move to step 2

Toning comes after you have finished cleansing.It basically removes any leftover cleanser on your face or other impurity and helps in minimizing open pores.

If you are thinking that you are a dry skinned beauty and you can skip on toner let me tell you you should not skip your toner at least now onward. Use one specially formulated for dry skin.

There are lots of toners available in the market but you need to choose a hydrating toner.You can use VLCC Rose Water toner or even simple rose water from gulabari or any other brand will do.

Take some toner on cotton pad and apply it on your entire face.It shoots your irritated skin and helps balancing moisture.Alternatively if you have a spray bottle you can spray it all over your face as well.

Step 3 of CTM Routine for Dry Skin – Moisturizing

Apply moisturizer when your skin is still damp as it will seal moisture and form a protective layer around your skin which will be able to fight harsh winter weather providing you soft ,supple and younger looking skin.

Follow this regularly for 15 days and I bet you will tell me that your skin is far better than before.So take care and love your skin.Stay happy and stay healthy.
