THISDAY Style - - CONTENT - By Moji allen

Look­ing for a sim­ple, easy-to-fol­low skin care reg­i­men and beauty es­sen­tials that fits your hec­tic sched­ule? Look no fur­ther. Here, Style cuts through the clut­ter and breaks down the top beauty and skin care prod­ucts that should be in ev­ery woman’s cab­i­net.

Cleansers

Snooz­ing with makeup on can clog pores and cause pre­ma­ture ag­ing and break­outs. Use warm water to loosen dirt and clogged pores, then ap­ply a dime-size amount of cleanser to the skin. Gen­tly mas­sage away residue and rinse with cool or luke­warm water. Be sure to re­move eye makeup with a proper re­mover. Choose a cleanser that is ap­pro­pri­ate for your par­tic­u­lar skin type. Milky, cream cleansers are best for dry skin, while gel for­mu­las work with oily com­plex­ions. Tip for oily girls: Use an al­co­hol-free toner af­ter cleans­ing to re­move ex­cess oils.

ex­fo­lia­tors

Fa­cial scrubs or ex­fo­lia­tors are must-have items for smooth skin with healthy glow. Bodyshop Vi­ta­min C ex­fo­lia­tor helps speed up new skin cell pro­duc­tion by clear­ing away old skin cells. Plus, they un­clog pores. Sen­si­tive skin tip: Avoid scrubs with scratchy grains. Look for ex­fo­lia­tors made with nat­u­ral fruit en­zymes—they dis­solve dead skin cells sans ir­ri­tat­ing mi­crobeads.Do it once or twice a week if you have nor­mal or dry skin and three to four times a week if you have oily or com­bi­na­tion skin.

Body SCRUB

Indulge your skin. De­light your senses. Want to scrub away the old and pam­per the new? Soft­soap Body But­ter Co­conut Scrub has you cov­ered! With crushed co­conut & jo­joba but­ter ex­tracts, this body wash is de­signed to gen­tly ex­fo­li­ate and mois­tur­ize your skin’s sur­face leav­ing you with soft, smooth, con­di­tioned, and clean skin

Mois­tur­izer

Ap­ply a mois­tur­izer af­ter your morn­ing rinse. For day­time choose a light for­mula that has a broad­spec­trum sun­screen with a min­i­mum SPF of 15. It will help the skin re­tain mois­ture and pro­tect against UVA/UVB rays. Bed­time calls for a thicker, richer for­mula. Night creams should con­tain col­la­gen, elastin, and es­sen­tial lipids to help re­fresh your face while you sleep. Gen­tly ap­ply a dime-size dab to your skin and use an up­ward, cir­cu­lar mo­tion to lightly mas­sage the cream into your face. In­fuse your skin with the hy­drat­ing and nour­ish­ing mois­tur­iz­ers in Bio-Oil, known to treat range of con­cerns from scars and stretch marks to un­even skin tone.

FRA­GRANCE

Not just a fra­grance but a state of mind. Provoca­tive per­fumer, Eti­enne de Swardt part­ners with Mon­taigne Place in a col­lec­tion of scents that dares to ask‘ ’who do you want to be to­day?” Etat Li­bre d’Or­ange rep­re­sents Unity, Beauty, Con­flict and Free­dom. These twelve mon­u­men­tal fra­grances have sur­pris­ing ol­fac­tory com­po­si­tions, with­out any lim­i­ta­tions in terms of cre­ativ­ity, raw ma­te­ri­als, or ex­pense. Each per­fumery rep­re­sents feel­ings, sex­u­al­ity and eroti­cism with their aro­mas, their ti­tles and their images.
