Hi everyone! Good morning. Hope you are having a great day. My today starts with a very interesting conversation, as I reccomend clean, natural, ayurvedic skincare to a friend who has potentially never taken care of his skin and is now looking to take it up a notch.

So, while discussing, I thought lets take up this fun challenge and help him out. Now let me give you a breif before we begin –
Young. Working Professional. Mid-aged. Never invested or indulged in skincare.

SKIN TYPE: Combination skin
ACNE SCARS: Subtle and occasional acne
LIFESTYLE: Active and Vegan

His main request was that he wants natural skincare, preferably vegan to just start taking care of himself. From someone who uses no products, he wanted to use few effective skincare products which would change his skin game. Ain’t nobody got the time to spend hours on skincare! (unlike the few of us 😀 )

Myth: Skincare which claim to be for women can only be used by women and not men.
Myth Buster: Skincare usage has no gender. Yes, men have different skin density hence they require more potent skincare. Hence, you can use any skincare, if rightly incorporated in a day and night routine, you are good to go. Don’t think too much! All this is just marketing fad.

Myth: A good skincare regimen needs to have 100 steps and multiple products to get good results.
Myth Buster: No, 4 to 5 products are more than enough for any person. Man or a Woman. Just that they need to cater to your particular skin type.

I recommended 4 steps skin routine for morning –

  1. Deep Cleansing Face Wash Cum Exfoliator
  2. Medical Grade Ointment
  3. Hydrating Face Cream
  4. Sunscreen

2 steps for night skincare routine –

  1. Deep Cleansing Face Wash
  2. Multipurpose Face Serum

Myth: I only have to apply these products when I’m going out.
Myth Buster: You HAVE TO apply all these products everyday in addition to your regular man hygiene routine. Even if it’s raining, or you are inside your house, you follow the disciple of a skincare routine.

Myth: Sunscreen only has to be applied while stepping out.
Myth Buster: Sunscreen has to be applied even when you are at home for protection. Check out my detailed article on SPF –

Myth: Good, natural/Ayurvedic skincare always has to be expensive.
Myth Buster: Many Made in India brands have incredible products which are natural and not expensive. If you don’t know how to do it, buy the following products in case if you skin is of the same type OR follow these links to know more –
