The festival of lights, Diwali is right around the corner. While you might be busy deciding on your outfits, decorating your house and figuring out what gifts to give people, there's one more thing you should keep in mind. And that is how to keep your skin protected from all the dirt and pollution that will get caught up in your skin during the festive season. Here are a few tips.

Haldi or turmeric is known for its antibacterial properties that can help keep your skin clean and protected. You could opt for something like the Ayush Anti Marks Turmeric Face Cream that contains Kumkumadi Tailam, which is a blend of 16 herbs and oils that are sure to give you radiant and glowing skin.

Layer your skincare routine

Trust us, this is an important step when it comes to keeping your skin clean and protected. The best way to keep toxins out of your skin is to layer it with products that will stop the toxins. Opt for a thick moisturiser, followed by a sunscreen and even a primer before you step out of the house.


04/9Nighttime routine

Nighttime routine

There's only so much you can do to keep your skin protected during the day. Which is why, you must allow it to breathe, rest and repair itself during the night when you're asleep. So, make sure that you remove all your makeup, cleanse, tone and apply your night cream before you head to bed.


05/9Drink plenty of water

Drink plenty of water

It's a given that when you'll step out of the house, the sun and the excessive pollution is going to strip your skin of its nutrients. This way, your skin will end up looking dull and dry. The best thing for you to do is to stay hydrated throughout the day. Keep drinking lots of water as it will help get rid of all the toxins from your body.


06/9Double Cleanse

Double Cleanse

Pollution and dirt can get clogged up deep in your pores which means it won't be easy to get rid of them. So the best way to ensure that your pores look clean is to double cleanse your face. When you get home, use a cleansing oil or micellar water to get rid of any makeup products or skin care products from your face. Then use a cleanser based on your skin type. You won't have one blemish on your face after this.




To ensure that your skin looks soft and smooth, you'll have to exfoliate it properly. Just make up a DIY scrub that you can use on your face and body and you'll be good to go. You could try out a walnut scrub that you can make by mixing 2 tbsp of walnut shell powder and 2 tbsp of body wash/face wash in a bowl. Trust us, your skin will feel soft in no time.


08/9Mask and Multi-Mask

Mask and Multi-Mask

You should use a mask every week or so if you want soft and clear skin. Since you'll go through a lot of pollution and you'll also be wearing a lot of makeup this festive season, try and use a sulfur-based mask. Trust us, it can really work wonders for your skin.




If you're someone who's just running short on time and doesn't have the energy to go through an intensive facial routine just pop in at your dermatologist's place and ask for a quick microdermabrasion facial. Not only will it get rid of dead skin cells from your face, it will also leave it looking soft and bright.
