Skin Care Routine - In My Skin Clinic

Did you ever follow the celebrity beauty trends only to realize the ultimate “celebrity beauty secrets” couldn’t do much for your skin? Have you ever copied your favorite celebrity’s confessed skin regimen, but it didn’t give you the desired results? Have you ever wondered why? Let me break that down.

A few parameters are unique to the Indian subcontinent, like exposure to various aggressors like pollution, different staple diets, and extreme climate due to physiography. All these lead to striking differences in our skin’s quality collectively.

Indian skin is more prone to pigmentation than others, so we need to take skincare seriously as some of them are very stubborn to treatment & tend to come back, so prevention is better.

Taking care of skin from an early age by following a basic skincare routine that includes moisturizer & especially sunscreen is good enough to reduce the chances of sun damage, dark spots & pigmentation later.

Know your skin type

It’s important that you understand your skin first to identify the best skincare routine for you. But how can you determine your skin type? Here’s a simple solution:

Normal skin

As the name suggests, this skin type is generally balanced. It is neither too dry nor too oily and isn’t excessively sensitive to anything external.

Dry skin

If your skin is itchy and tight, especially post-washing, you might have dry skin. Dry skin types are generally prone to age prematurely.

Oily skin

Your skin could be oily if you find the T-zone greasy and shiny. It could be because of larger sebaceous glands. Oily skin is prone to acne.

Combination skin

There are people who have oily T-zones but dry cheeks.

Sensitive skin

Sensitive skin reacts to external factors, products or aggressors.

It is always a good idea to let an expert decide the skin type instead of self-assessing. You would be amazed to know that most skin treatments work wonders once the dermatologist understands the skin type.

The step-by-step guide

The skincare routine can be summarized with just three easy steps – cleanse, tone and moisturize. However, the results will depend on the choice of product you use for the routine.

Here is the step-by-step breakdown:


Starting with a cleanser that suits your skin is important. Choose a product that is gentle on your skin and can remove debris and dirt, unclog the pores and hydrates the skin.


Moisturizing skin is more important than you think. It retains water in the skin by restricting epidermal water loss. The skin needs hydration and nourishment; regardless of skin type, moisturizers are crucial in your regimen. It also helps in preventing premature wrinkles and fine lines.


Sunscreens offer protection against UVB rays, but a good sunscreen will protect against UVA as well as UVB rays. While UVB rays cause cellular damage and sunburns, UVA penetrates deep to create wrinkles and fine lines. Further, sunscreens also prevent your skin from darkening and looking dull.
