LIVE Instagram Video: Our Skincare Routine

Thank you to all of you who tuned into our second Live Instavid focusing on Our Skincare Routines. Its definitely a daunting thing to do as we literally bare ourselves in real time but we LOVE interacting with you guys and its something we are going to do more regularly. It also helps us to answer as many of your questions as possible :)

Wedding Prep .:.

As you know Mandeep is getting married next year and as such we have been focusing on our Skincare routines that much more. Effective Makeup application always starts with good Skincare and we have included a few key products into our routines to make sure we have the best skin possible leading up to the Big day (yes it is Sharon's big day too). 

'Cleansing-Toning-Moisturising' is not enough ! 

Those 3 steps are simply the foundation of your skincare routine; use of 'Pre-cleansers,' 'SPF's' and 'Serums' is where the difference lies for us.


Whether we are wearing minimal or heavy duty makeup we find it never comes off in its entirety after Cleansing - do you guys find specs of makeup on your cotton pads when Toning??

Using an Oil-based Pre-cleanse before Cleansing ensures every bit of our Makeup is removed before we start to use products that target deeper layers of the skin. 

-→ SPF  ←-

Overexposure to UVA and UVB rays cause sunburn, encourage premature aging and contribute to skin cancer (to name an important few) which is why daily protection is so essential!

(read our post 'Under the Sun' for more information on how UVA and UVB rays affect the skin). 

There are different ways of using SPF depending on what works best for you - Sharon for example prefers to use a standalone product whereas Mandeep incorporates an SPF into her moisturiser (see products below).

-→ SERUM ←-

We wear this before our moisturiser every morning and evening as it penetrates the deeper layers of our skin. This is the step of our skincare routines that helps us most with dehydration, smoothness and reduction in pore size.

Products. Products. Products.
