Cleansing, Toning and Moisturizing at Home (CTM Routine)

Cleansing, Toning and Moisturizing routine is important for having a healthy smooth even skin. Your skin is a reflection of 30% diet, 30% products you use over it and 40% the care you do of it. It is said to be of peak importance to people who use makeup. Cleansing, Toning and Moisturizing routine is especially very necessary for people belonging to 30 years and above.

But wait, I think Cleansing, Toning and Moisturizing

I feel every youth should do this too, as it is said prevention is better than cure. The reason why it is recommended, is to repair and retain your skin pH , tightness and glow so that , your skin doesn’t suffer ever in life and you live happily ever after . Thing is people run to search a cure when they develop a problem , we all know acne grows with age , skin needs more care as the years passes by , the more cosmetics you use the more after effects you can see on your skin and face , so by now you know everything but

what’s your plan to stop ageing of skin ??

Right age to start Cleansing, Toning and Moisturizing?

Start now !!If you are in your 20’s its best , or else whatever age you are in after 20’s you have to start off now !

Who should do Cleansing, Toning and Moisturizing ?

This is equally effective for all . No gender differences are there .

Why to do Cleansing, Toning and Moisturizing??

Help your skin revive itself , you can see the difference in quality of your skin in just 2-4 weeks, from lipstick stains, makeup dryness, sun burns, dead skin layers, stress on skin, damage by cosmetics, water proof mascara eyelash damage, eyeliner, brow bone liner, dry weather and so on and so froth .

I have mentioned how choosing the right cleanser ans it’s importance , types , tips , everything in my blog Cleansing Milk : tips & benefits  , but the next two steps are equally important which are toning and moisturizing.

Cleansing helps in removal of makeup, dust, dead skin and cleans clog pores.

Toning soothes the skin calms it down, maintain skin’s PH, value and hydrates the skin. In market large variety of toners are available whenever necessary I use rose water as toner . I don’t require toner separately very much personally , because of two reasons :-

  1. I use cleansing milk , which is non-foaming cleanser instead is moisturizing one. Those who use bar cleanser or foam cleansers they must use a toner separately.
  2. I use Patanjali aloe vera gel which can act as both , toner and moisturizer as per me. You can read everything about it , in this blog Best Patanjali aloe Vera gel to buy [8 tips and benefits how to use it]

Moisturizing helps to nourish skin with packing moisture in it.

It feels heavenly after entire Cleansing, Toning and Moisturizing routine.

Steps for Cleansing, Toning and Moisturizing…

    1.  Cover your face with the cleansing milk that suits you.
    2. Let it be for 4-5 minutes on your face and then remove it gently with the help of soft cloth or cotton ball whatever you prefer.
    3.  Wash your face with mild or cold water and then pat dry your face.
    4. Now comes toning , those who need toner can use rose water best for all skin types, further its entirely on you what you choose , honey , pore fix , cucumber, chamomile , pomegranate and many other types of toner are available in market . Whatever you choose try to have it organic for which Biotique & Khadi are two brands I recommend for this .
    5. To apply a toner on face people suggest use cotton balls , but in that way I feel product like toner of so thin consistency goes waste , so better use it by help of your clean palms and finger tips. Do clean your hands before this , then put some 5-7 drops of toner , spread it in hands and instantly pat all over your face with palms and finger tips .
    6. Never put pressure on your face by cloth , cotton ball , palms or fingers even . Do every step as gentle on face as possible .
    7. Let your face absorb that hydration and then after 3 minutes around , now its time to use moisturizer.
    8. Work of moisturizer is to lock moisture in your skin . So its highly recommended to go for an organic one ,as its gonna go deeper to your clean skin . So for moisturizing I use patanjali aloe vera gel. If you don’t wanna use it then use any moisturizer but do check,  it must not contain any alcohol in it and must have organic ingredients .
    9. Spread your chosen moisturizer in upwards direction gently and your’re done.

  1. Night time before sleep is the best time , that is what its is said by most of the people but experts believe you shall not sleep with any product lying on your face at all . Thus evening or day time is what I recommend and is what I do personally . Keep your face clean and dirt free is what is great before sleeping but never sleep with any product covering your face .

    How often to do Cleansing, Toning and Moisturizing?

    Once in a day only . Over doing anything can cause opposite effects than the desired effects , by most of the beauty experts this is recommended once in every day as routine for all .

Cleansing Milk : Tips & Benefits

Cleansing milk is the best gift I gave to my skin care .  “N” number of times we have heard importance of routine of cleansing, toning and moisturizing. However the whole routine can go wrong for your skin, if you choose wrong cleansing milk on the 1st place.

Harsh cleansing milk can damage skin and mild cleansing milk can soften, more lemon in cleansing milk can’t be beard by sensitive skin and more fats in cleansing milk can’t be beard by oily skin as it makes it more greasy.

Benefits of cleansing milk 

  1. Clear skin – Helps in getting clean , clear skin , dust & dead skin free face .
  2. Nourished and fresh feeling skin – Its important part of skin care routine for anyone. it pampers your skin and makes it feel refreshed.
  3. Removes Makeup – Asset to ever lady who uses makeup . This revives your skin and also removes makeup efficiently .
  4. Most important and very 1st step of most prompted skin care routine by experts around the wold . Cleansing , toning , moisturizing.
  5. Not gender specific – Its for men and women both .

Cleansing milk or what type of cleanser to use?

There are multiple types of cleansers around .

  1. Gel cleansers
  2. Cream cleansers
  3. Foam cleansers
  4. Oil cleansers
  5. Clay cleansers
  6. Powder cleansers
  7. Bar cleansers
  8. Cleansing cloths and sponges

The major 4 type of cleansers that I have seen normally used around are:  bar, cream, foam, and oil cleansers.

The non-foaming cleansers are the best cleansers as per me which are more over in cream , milk or lotion formats. Bar cleansers and foam cleansers I would not  recommend, as I feel they further dry or drain skin from natural oils. Milk cleansers or cleansing milk is 100% better than foam cleansers. The cleansing milk nourishes your skin, makes it dust and dead skin free , also to all beauty divas especially it is a gift to skin as it helps in removing makeup with pampering your skin too.

It cleans your skin without taking away natural oils from your skin. I was introduced to cleansing milk and it’s importance by a friend who use it always, and trust me she did a great help by telling me this , now it’s my regular skin care routine now. I am using cleansing milk since a year.

Best time to use a cleanser?

Best time to use cleansing milk is before sleeping , as after that time your skin and you both go to recovery and relax mode so , before sleep is the best time to take care of yourself . The other timing when it is suited to apply cleansing milk is when you wish to remove makeup or when you come back home after a long day or journey , like traveled too much or faced open or dusty environment , as cleansing milk removes dust and dead skin from your face .

How to use and apply cleansing milk ?

That’s no rocket science , take small amount of cleansing milk on your palm , spread it over your face and cover your face with it ,let it be on your face for 3-5 minutes , take small cotton balls or super soft cloth , start removing it from your face slowly, wash with cold or mild  water splashes , pat dry your face with a cloth and you are done .

Two bonus tips I would like to add-on personally ;

  1. Never put pressure on your face by hands or any material as it hampers the tightness of your skin .
  2. While applying anything over face never ever apply in downwards or side motion  as it brings your skin down and loosen up . Always apply anything over face in upwards motion in slow pace and with as light pressure as possible .

Which cleansing milk to buy ??

In this one year duration, I have trend 3 cleansing milk about which I am going to share my tried and tested review.

My 1st ever brand of cleansing milk was Ayur cleansing milk as recommended by my friend. She has a sensitive skin and for her this product still works like magic.

To me Ayur was a mild cleansing milk, which is undoubtedly usable for all skin types, it has thin consistency but but but… I just did not felt any change or good on my skin by this I have a medium type skin which is oily and dry both at times. To me it only felt refreshing and nothing more, just felt as an add on product to me and nothing else so I switched, I opted for Himalaya cleansing milk. As my favorite face wash which I use without fail is Himalaya Neem face wash so I thought to give Himalaya a try in this category too .

Guess What ??

It was fantastic for my skin , just suited apt , left my face soft , nice , slight shiny after use, does works well in makeup removal and cleaning my face well . Went again a fan of the brand. I repeated the product 3 times and was a happy customer , the only problem I was facing, is to keep track on when to re-order online always . As , its not very much available in local stores .

Story time,cleansing_milk

So one fine day , I went to amazon searching cleansing milk saw discounts , good reviews, and written as deep pores cleanser with lemon and aloe vera extracts , as I know lemon and aloe vera are great for skin so considering all facts I ordered Vaadi deep pore cleansing milk with lemon and aloe vera extracts . Vaadi brand I too heard that very day for the first time . The product was too drying for me and even caused a bit of irritation on skin . Immediately after washing face I need a good mosturizer or aloe vera gel to feel relaxed. I am a person with medium skin type having neither too oily nor too dry skin . So always be careful & buy a trusted and self tested, well suited cleansing milk only.

So the conclusion is ,

Cleansing milk is best to use for skin care and among Ayur and Himalaya cleansing milk . Himalaya wins for me and I am going to be loyal to it now. Himalaya cleansing milk is very affordable too and mostly is available online .
