Diwali Skincare in 6 Easy Steps
Cleansing and exfoliation for Diwali set the stage for a radiant, rejuvenated complexion. The first step to achieving that coveted Diwali glow is through cleansing to remove impurities and makeup, allowing your skin to breathe freely. Try Better Body Bombay’s Blood Orange Energizing Daily Face Wash or the Lavender & Chamomile Calming Daily Face Wash. Both are suitable for all skin types, the former is a brightening cleanser while the latter is a soothing one, choose a cleanser that meets your needs.
Following this, exfoliation comes into play, gently sloughing off dead skin cells to unveil a smoother, more luminous surface. This dynamic duo paves the way for better skincare product absorption and contributes to a healthy, youthful appearance. We recommend a sensitive and hydrating facial scrub like the Aloe & Coconut Gentle Hydrating Facial Scrub. Since Diwali also falls during the months of winter, it tends to make our skin dry and dehydrated, this scrub is formulated with mineral-rich coconut, aloe vera extract, and cranberry powder that leaves your skin smooth without stripping it of its natural oils or sebum.

Serums and more: The secret to a hydrated skin
Serums play a pivotal role in achieving a radiant Diwali look. They are enriched with potent active ingredients that work wonders by targeting specific skin concerns such as fine lines, uneven tone, or dehydration. These concentrated formulations offer a boost of nourishment, ensuring your skin remains hydrated, firm, and luminous throughout the festive season. Incorporating serums into your skincare regimen can be a game-changer, delivering the ultimate glow and addressing your unique skin needs. Try Better Body Bombay’s Blood Orange Eternal Youth Facial Serum so you can step into Diwali festivities with confidence and a truly dazzling glow. This serum combats the harsh effects of pollutants on your skin while the hyaluronic acid targets skin cell regeneration and works in harmony to maintain that bright, youthful glow.
Nourish, hydrate, and moisturise
Moisturisation seamlessly follows the serum discussion, underlining the crucial role of moisturisers in perfecting your festive look. As the next step in your skincare routine, a high-quality moisturiser seals in the benefits of previous products, maintaining skin's hydration and forming a protective barrier against environmental stressors. It's the key to that coveted softness and suppleness, ensuring your skin feels and looks its best for Diwali. We recommend continuing in the same citrusy routine of the cleanser and serum with a Blood Orange Hydrating Daily Moisturizer with SPF 30. Enriched with zesty citrus extracts, its gentle formulation of ceramides and niacinamides fortifies your skin's natural barrier, leaving it visibly firmer and healthier over time. The SPF 30 protects your skin from the harmful effects of UVA/UVB rays.
Protection, protection, protection
Although SPF 30 in your moisturiser is enough for indoors and in the evenings, it’s beneficial for you to apply sunscreen in preparation for the festive season. To complete your Diwali skincare regimen, don't forget the essential step of applying sunscreen. Shielding your skin from harmful UV rays is paramount. Opt for a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF to ensure your radiant look remains protected and flawless throughout the celebrations.
The best things in life are free
When we say the best things in life are free, we mean sleep and water. Incorporating adequate sleep and staying well-hydrated are non-negotiable components of your Diwali skincare routine. Quality rest allows your skin to rejuvenate, while proper hydration maintains its elasticity and natural glow. Prioritise both for a refreshed and vibrant appearance, ensuring you shine brightly during the festivities.
Come full circle: Cleanse post-celebration
After the joyous Diwali celebrations, take into account the significance of thorough cleansing for your skin's health. Makeup, pollutants, and excess oils can accumulate, potentially leading to breakouts and dullness. Proper cleansing is the gateway to letting your skin breathe and recover. Especially if you've applied festive makeup, a gentle yet effective cleanser like the Tea Tree and Kaffir Lime Face Wash is your ally in removing every trace. It prevents clogged pores, breakouts, and the onset of tired-looking skin. By committing to this essential step, you're not only preserving your skin's radiance but also ensuring its long-term well-being, allowing you to greet each day post-Diwali with a refreshed, glowing canvas.
