My skincare routine changes from time to time and I have never updated you guys about that. So, I thought let’s do this today, and hopefully sharing my personal experience will help some of you find products that work well for your skin too but please know that what works for me may not work for you and vice versa because we all have different skin types. So, choose the products that suit you best.
I will share my morning and night skincare routine for you below and both take me less than 5 minutes.
Now without wasting any time, Let’s get started!
Taking care of your skin is very important because if your skin is in good shape, any makeup you apply on top of it will look much better. Good skin is key to flawless makeup application. Skincare doesn’t have to be complicated to be effective. I believe in a simple skincare routine without too many steps. So, keep your skincare simple but stick to it because the more you are likely to stick to it, the more you will see the results.
Having said that, I have recently started using Niacinamide Serum from the Brand Vya Natural. They do not use parabens, sulfates, mineral oils, formaldehyde releasers, phthalates, fillers, drying alcohol, premix bases, or petroleum. They also do not use artificial fragrances and colors.
The brand name stands for
V – Vimal (pure)
Y – Yajas (reverence)
A – Ayush (healthy life)
Vya is reverence for a pure and healthy life.
Vya Naturals Niacinamide Serum comes in a glass bottle that has a pump on top of it, protected by the plastic cap. Its texture is non-greasy and that is what I liked most about it. This serum has been formulated with niacinamide content between 4-5 percent. Niacinamide is a form of Vitamin B3 that helps fo do everything from improve your skin’s barrier function to fade acne scars and even help reduce uneven skin tone, fine line, wrinkles and dullness. It is uniquely compatible with products in your skincare routine. This ingenious Vitamin B is well tolerated by all skin types. It’s even suitable for sensitive skin.
My Morning Routine
Every morning, I start off by cleansing my face with the cleansing milk. After that, I take 2-3 pumps of this Niacinamide serum, mix it up with my moisturizer and apply it onto my face using my fingers. Do not rub the serum on the face, just pat and to let it set/dry. Now, to finish off my routine, I apply sunscreen. Always use sunscreen after serum. I have been doing this routine for quite some time, I just changed my face serum. This serum works great for my skin. This routine helps me to keep my skin hydrated and reducing the dryness of my skin.
My Night Routine
Moving on to how I use this serum at the night. For the best results, It’s important to follow this routine at night as well. I wash my face with facewash. Then, I apply toner. I take a few drops of toner into my palm and apply it all over my face (do not rub the toner across your face). Let it air-dry for a while and follow up with the night cream. After that, apply this face serum using my fingers. It helps in locking the moisture in my skin and leaves it soft and smooth. So, follow this routine every night and wake up to glowing and healthy skin the next morning.
Why You Should Use Niacinamide?
- Niacinamide is the magical water-soluble ingredient that does it all. It helps renew and restore the surface of the skin against moisture loss and dehydration by helping the skin improve its natural production of skin-strengthening ceramides.
- Dry skin benefits from Niacinamide because it helps keep its lipid barrier intact. This in turn prevents moisture loss and keeps the skin hydrated and healthy.
- Niacinamide helps skin recover from oxidative stress caused by exposure to pollution, sunlight and toxins. Since this reduces inflammation your skin will start to show less redness as a reaction to acne or eczema.
- Niacinamide helps to reduce the appearance of enlarged pores on the skin mainly because it helps control excessive oil production and also by increasing the moisture content of the skin.
- Mature skin benefits from Niacinamide as well because the improved skin barrier and increased hydration levels slow down the appearance of fines lines and wrinkles.
