The heavy duty Brigade Road, and the elegant Charminar and the quietly functional Teesta are all amazing sunscreens for those with combination to normal skin. To choose one from among the three, you need to look at the finish you want and your complexion. From lighter skin tones to duskier shades, you move from Charminar to Brigade Road to Teesta. If you have a lot of outdoor action you can look at Brigade Road. If you have a lot of work online, you may want to go with Charminar. For a softer evening, foundation like look, either the Charminar or Teesta SAFESCREENS are ideal. The best sunscreen for pregnancy and nursing mothers is Brigade Road.
We have all of this information in a simple matrix for you, right here!
All 3 sunscreens are ecofriendly with a natural origin content of 85-90%.
Deeper cleansing facewashes are still recommended while taking make up off, or sunscreen off. You can use a biphasic make up remover to remove the make up and sunscreen residue, and follow through with Cetaphil Bar or Cleanance Gel, which can be used along with Light Routine® Easy or Milk Route® Daily for cleansing out all the dirt of the day!
Light Routine® Easy or Milk Route® Daily are both great options as daily exfoliators – you can choose the Light Routine® Easy if your climate is hot and humid or if you tend more towards the oilier end of the combination skin spectrum. If you feel mostly dry, or if your climate is less humid and you prefer a dewy, spongy feel to the skin, then the Milk Route® Daily may be the best exfoliator for you.
Re(d)covery Serum :
An ideal product to keep the skin bright and happy, Re(d)covery™ Serum calms down the skin, and fights against pigmentation enzymes, giving you a clear, finished look, that you would love waking up to!
A perfect finish to your day, White Pine® Red Oil is all about restoring the skin to its natural balance, refilling lost moisture, and delivering high power antioxidants to clean up the day. Powered by Pycnogenol®, which is 20 times more powerful than vitamin C, White Pine® Red Oil does not get oxidized on the skin, and is a great after sun skincare. If you have combination or normal skin, which tends more towards oiliness you may wish to choose the White Pine® Mousse here.
Weekly Exfoliation with Light Routine® Gentle for that dazzle and glow. You can use both Re(d)covery™ and White Pine® Red Oil on the same day as your Light Routine®.
Now, let’s create the routines.
Skincare Routine for those with combination skin type tending towards oily skin. That is if your skin type is more on the oily side of combination, here’s what you should do.
Mornings: Cleanse the skin with Cleanance face wash. Follow through with SAFESCREEN® Brigade Road or SAFESCREEN® Teesta , if you have a dusky skin tone, and for lighter skin tones use SAFESCREEN® Charminar. Reapply after 4 hours for SAFESCREEN® Teesta and Charminar, and after 6 hours for Brigade Road.
Evenings: Use a make up removal step if you have used any make up over your sunscreen. Otherwise, proceed to wash your face with Cleanance Gel and exfoliate with Light Routine® Easy. Apply White Pine® Red Oil on the face and neck and let dry. You can massage the product very gently into the skin, but avoiding rubbing the skin.
Bedtime: Let us work on deeper renewal, and rejuvenation with the most popular skin care serum, Re(d)covery™. Apply this overnight, for improved skin clarity and skin brightness. After 2 months on this regimen consider stepping up to a protocol with White Pine® Mousse for 2 -3 months, for working on skin surface and clarity. Alternatively, you could work on surface textural changes using White Pine® Mousse as a spot application even within this skin care routine!
