Being locked away in our houses has definitely changed the way we look at the world, this time off has also made us look after ourselves. Selfcare has become a very important part of our lives and skincare is an important step. We know that because we are super invested just like you. 

With the announcement of a lockdown extension (at least in Maharashtra) it looks like we are all stuck at home for another month. So we thought, why the long faces, instead let’s GLOW UP together. 

We have come up with this 30-day skincare challenge where we will tell you exactly what to do. And no, we won’t ask you to invest in fancy products, you can make do with the basic ones already at home! The only rule is to follow the steps and keep adding on.

We’ll be right by your side doing it along with you and yes, this works for all skin types mostly because it is about learning what your skin needs and what it doesn’t. So it’s time you bookmark this challenge and make sure to revisit it every day for a much-needed skincare boost!

Skincare challenge in…





Day 1:

Time to get rid of the dead skin cells first so your skin can absorb all the goodness. Exfoliation is the name of the game. You could use any scrub you have on hand or make your own.

Day 2:

Learn about cleansing, toning and moisturising. These are the basic steps for any skincare routine - morning or night. The basic principle is to clean your pores, balance the effects of the cleansing and then hydrate.

3 Simple DIY toners that will change the way you do your skincare

Day 3:

If your house has windows, you need sunscreen. That’s the rule, so if you’ve been skipping this step, it’s time to add it back to your routine. CTM, then SPF, and these steps continue for the whole month.

Day 4: 

Give yourself a massage. Using your knuckles to apply your moisturiser is a great way to let the product seep in. Massaging the face can also promote blood circulation.

Day 5:

Sometimes, your skin not only needs the goodness from topical treatments but it is necessary to nourish and rejuvenate it from within. So, eat right or at least include one of the ingredients in your meals every day.

Day 6: 

Clean your makeup brushes. We do not realise how dirty they are and end up using the same tools again and again. So get to scrubbing.

Day 7: 

You’ve officially managed to survive the week and this needs to be appreciated. Treat yourself to facial steam, exfoliation and at-home mask.
