Prepping Your Skin for Raksha Bandhan: A Week-long Skincare Guide

By Shrudi Shyam

Festive seasons are imbued with joy, love, and endless photos. Raksha Bandhan, a festival honouring the bond between siblings, is not exempted from this merriment. Among the flurry of preparations, it's imperative to remember one vital aspect: skincare. Everyone craves a radiant and glowing presence during this celebration, perfect for those countless selfies and cherished family photos. And that's what makes festival skincare extremely important.

Importance of Festive Skincare for Raksha Bandhan

Raksha Bandhan is an occasion where you want to look and feel your absolute best. But the question that arises is, why is skincare essential during this festival? Enlisted below are some reasons why festival skincare is important during this auspicious day:

1. Confidence Booster: Good skincare has the potential to enhance your overall appearance, thereby boosting your self-esteem and confidence. When you know your skin is glowing and healthy, it naturally reflects in your demeanour.

2. Nourishment for the Skin: Similar to our bodies, our skin requires nourishment too. A regular skincare routine ensures that your skin is properly nourished. This makes your skin appear healthy and youthful.

3. Prevention is Better than Cure: Taking care of your skin regularly helps prevent future skin problems. From breakouts and blackheads to premature ageing, regular skincare routines can do wonders for your skin's health.

A Week-Long Step-by-step Skincare Guide for Raksha Bandhan 2023

This festive season, let's embark on a journey to radiant skin. Delve into a detailed step-by-step festival skincare regimen to unlock your radiant festive glow. And don't forget, the key to maintaining beautiful, healthy skin is consistency. Let's take a look at each step and see what we can do to achieve a radiant glow:

Step 1: Cleansing and Exfoliation

Begin your festive skincare routine by engaging in some cleansing and exfoliating rituals. Start by cleansing your skin using a gentle yet effective product like Pond's Gold Beauty Cleansing Facewash. It helps in removing dirt, impurities, and residual makeup from your skin. Meanwhile, the French rose extracts and 24K pure gold give you a bright golden glow.

After cleansing, exfoliation helps eliminate dead skin cells, uncovering a fresh and radiant complexion underneath. Use a gentle exfoliator such as Pond's Bright Beauty Face Scrub with Vitamin B3 and E that gently exfoliates your skin using soft silica beads infused in a gel-like consistency. Exfoliation also improves the absorption of other skincare products which makes it a great start to your festive routine. While it's recommended to cleanse your face twice a day, use an exfoliating face scrub only once or twice a week.

Step 2: Masking

Now, follow up with the next step which is applying a face mask. Clay masks like Pond's Bright Beauty Mineral Clay Face Mask or Pond's Pure Detox Mineral Clay Face Mask can effectively remove deep-seated impurities, leaving your skin feeling refreshed and radiant. These masks also provide a moment of relaxation and promote the overall well-being of the person.

Step 3: Target-Specific Concerns

The next step in your festive skincare would be paying attention to your skin's specific concerns. Whether you have acne, hyperpigmentation, or fine lines, use targeted treatments like serums, or anti-ageing products to start treating these. You can use Pond's Bright Beauty Anti-Pigmentation Serum with 12% Gluta-Niacinamide Complex to get rid of your hyperpigmentation while unlocking flawless, radiant skin. You can also use products from the Pond's Age Miracle range, both during the day and night to reduce the visible signs of ageing. These specialised treatments can drastically improve your skin's appearance and health over time.

Step 4: Moisturisation

Your skin needs adequate hydration. Moisturising with a product suitable for your skin type maintains the skin's moisture barrier, promoting soft, supple skin. Hydrated skin also tends to look healthier and more vibrant. Use products like Pond's Gold Beauty Serum with Golden Argan Oil Vitamin E in your daily skincare routine for that added dose of hydration. Then apply a lightweight yet hydrating moisturiser in the morning and evening after your chosen serum for optimal nourishment and hydration of your skin. You can start applying a hydrating moisturiser such as Pond's Super Light Gel with Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin E on a daily basis.

Step 5: Sun Protection

The most important thing to do while trying to achieve a bright and radiant look, is protecting your skin from sun damage. Sun damage not only causes tanning but can also lead to dark spots and early signs of ageing. Sun protection becomes especially important after exfoliation as it makes your skin more photosensitive. Use products like Pond's Serum Boost Sunscreen Cream with SPF 55 or Pond's Serum Boost Sunscreen Serum with SPF 50. You can also include Pond's DeTan Facewash with Vitamin C Niacinamide occasionally into your skincare routine to remove any access tan from your face. This will reveal your bright and radiant complexion. Use this every day after applying your moisturiser.

Step 6: Hydration and Sleep

During this week increase your hydration routine by combing a lot of water intake while using your hydrating products. Remember, adequate sleep is paramount for healthy skin. Sleep can easily rejuvenate your body, including your skin. So, ensure you get a good night's rest every day of the week, especially a day or two before Raksha Bandhan.

Step 7: Instant Glow

On Raksha Bandhan, start your day with light exfoliation, followed by using a hydrating sheet mask such as Pond's Vitamin Sheet Face Mask. This will give you an instant glow. Then moisturise your skin with Pond's Super Light Gel, followed by Pond's BB+ Cream and Pond's Natural Glow Face Powder. Your skin is now all set to shine for the festival, leaving you glowing and radiant throughout the day.

It is recommended that you start incorporating these steps into your festive skincare routine. However, the earlier you start, the better your skin will look on Raksha Bandhan. So, get started with your festive routine now.

In conclusion, maintaining a regular skincare routine is essential for healthy, glowing skin. This Raksha Bandhan, let your skin exude the joy and brightness of the festival. Following this detailed week-long skincare guide, you will not only be prepared for Raksha Bandhan 2023, but you will also develop a routine that will keep your skin beautiful and radiant all year round. Here's to a radiant festive season with your siblings!
