How, you may ask? By unveiling the ultimate products tested by them. It’s like winning over your grandmother’s recipes.

We definitely need to be all ears to the celebrity make-up artist, Clint Fernandes, who styles our most favorite celebs like Katrina Kaif, Manushi Chillar and Kangana Ranaut. We bet with his beauty regime you will definitely make it to the next issue of Vogue. On the other hand, Marvie Ann Beck, the glam bridal artist, reveals her secrets too. Tejas Shah who works with beauties like Sushmita Sen and Rhea Chakraborty, will definitely make your skin feel like it’s on a vacation.

According to Clint, Marvie and Tejas, your beauty regimen should consist of five major steps, them being:

TONING:
A toner is a cleansing agent, which is a compulsion for those with oily or acne prone skin. If you apply make-up on a daily basis, toning is the key to maintain a healthy skin.

BRANDS RECOMMENDED BY OUR EXPERTS:
Innisfree Jeju Volcanic pore toner Neutrogena oil free eye make up remover (for normal skin), Marvie mentions this might be your ultimate lifesaver; it wipes away everything, perfect to pep you up on a Monday morning after your long baked & smokey eyes, red lips kinda Saturday night!
Neutrogena extra gentle cleanser (fragrance free) for oily skin Clinique anti blemish solutions

EXFOLIATNG:
Exfoliators vary for each skin type; make sure you pick the right one.

BRANDS RECOMMENDED BY OUR EXPERTS:
Clinique pep start (it helps you impress almost everyone you meet at any hour the day and is loved by Tejas) Dermalogica daily superfoliant St. Ives apricot scrub (It seems old school but it still tops Clint’s beauty list)

3. UNDER EYE CREAM:
The under eye being the most sensitive area of the face needs to be treated differently, exfoliators and toners need to be kept away from this region. The reason nourishment is mandatory because fine lines, dark circles and wrinkles appear first in this area.

BRANDS RECOMMENDED BY OUR EXPERTS:

Two of our experts swear by the Shiseido Benefiance wrinkle resist 24 (It surely might have a dash of pixie dust for it fulfills your life long dream of never looking too old)
Bobbi Brown hydrating face cream

CHARCOAL FACE PACK:
The trending charcoal facemask may not look very appealing but the benefits are commendable. Activated charcoal helps clean all the dirt and oil accumulated in the pores hence refreshing your skin.

BRANDS RECOMMENDED BY OUR EXPERTS:

Glamglow supermud
The Natural Beauty Co Charcoal and Licorice all-in-one brightening scrub and mask (is definitely, the best of both worlds) FabIndia haldi chandan mudpack (In case charcoal doesn’t work for you, like it didn’t for Clint. He looks very content with his traditional and organic ingredients)

MOISTURIZING:
It is one of the integral fractions of skin care. Regardless of your skin type, a moisturizer needs to be applied on a daily basis.

BRANDS RECOMMENDED BY OUR EXPERTS:
Clinique dramatically different moisturizing gel (Tejas prefers the gel over the lotion, he believes it gives better results).
Himalaya nourishing face moisturizing lotion (Very interestingly Marvie states that she happened to try her mother’s Himalaya lotion and ever since she’s been a fan, so much so that she owns all of them now).
La Roche-Posay double repair face moisturizer works best for Clint.

A few insider tips to keep in mind while buying your products:

  • Always read the contents at the back before purchasing. Your toner works best when it is alcohol free.
  • Your moisturizer needs to be non-comedogenic, oil free and hypoallergenic. Always pick a face wash that is paraben free.

Once you’ve got these covered, you’re finally ready to give your skin the treatment it deserves.
