The Juice brings you 5 products you need in your beauty arsenal STAT.
Face Wash shouldn’t just smell nice
It’s a face wash, not perfume. Choose a face wash that goes with your skin type.Tea tree oil has proven benefits for acne-prone skin, and it doesn’t exactly smell like a meadow in summertime.
Shop: Nyassa Tea Tree Oil Face Wash, ₹400
Not only is it important to pamper your skin once in a while, but it feels aaahmazing! For 10 minutes, you get to just switch off and enjoy the self-indulgent process. We recommend cucumbers.

Serum before moisturizer
A serum is more concentrated, and more easily absorbed by your skin compared to a moisturizer. As you age and your skin gradually loses its elasticity because of collagen depletion, you need topical replenishment to maintain suppleness in your skin.
Shop: L’Oreal Paris Revitalift Filler Serum, ₹1330
Use the right chemicals
While some chemicals are actually harsh (like sodium laureth sulphate and parabens), some are good and can help you in your journey to better skin. Think AHAs and BHAs like glycolic acid and salicyclic acid. These help in regeneration of new skin by peeling the older layers of your skin. Don’t skimp on the sunscreen after. Newer skin is more susceptible to sun damage.

Don’t ignore your eyes
Eyes are the most prominent feature on your face, and the first to show signs of ageing. If you don’t already, start using an anti-ageing eye cream as early as your mid to late 20s.
