Are you already familiar with what is ctm?If no then continue reading and find why our skin needs this.CTM is c=cleansing,t=toning,and m=moisturizing. If we give 10 minutes in morning and 10 minutes at night to our skin its enough for a healthy skin.So lets checkout what cleansing actually means.
Skin is nothing without CTM routine.
Cleansing the face is the most important part that we must do in the morning,that should not be ignored at all.Cleansing not only removes the dead skin but also clears the oil that has been accumulated overnight on the skin. Cleansing helps to manage the ph (pouvoir hydrogene) of the skin.The ph level of skin is from 4.5 to 5.5.
Cleansing is the key for a beautiful skin,no matter what your skin type is cleansing is must for all skin types.Cleansing releases sebum from our skin and makes it look fresh and healthy.
Natural cleanser/Herbal cleanser
3.2 Drops of lemon juice, Mix all the ingredients together,massage it well and then wash it off.
So the next step is toning. After every treatment toner is used.Toner basically closes the pores of our skin and prevent it from pollution. Toner creates one layer to the skin. And the most important thing we use skin freshener for dry skin and astringent (Toner) for oily skin.
Many of you may be thinking why is it so?
Then the answer is skin freshener is a non-drying formula for dry skin. Most of the skin freshener is hydrating one and it suits dry skin. But its not same to the acne prone or oily skin because oily skin releases much amount of oil on the skin,hence to lock that oil toner is used.

Moisturizing is the basic need for all skin types.Use moisturizer as soon as we take bath.Moisturize the face atleast 2 times in a day. Moisturizing our face before applying the makeup is must as it save our skin from harmful chemicals. Moisturizing is the protection of our skin.Now a days we get spf in moisturizer so its a double coat on our skin.
Moisturizer has two types,first is oil base moisturizer and the second one is water base/oil free moisturizer.
Water base moisturizer is used for oily skin which is also known as oil free moisturizer.
