You don’t have to be as vain (or as lavish) as the Egyptian queen Cleopatra when it comes to skincare regime. Here are some easy-to-follow tips from experts that’ll get you a step closer to a flawless complexion.

Sun Safe

Products to Use: Bottega di LungaVita Sol Leon Curasol Stick For Lips (Rs 399); Bottega di LungaVita Sol Leon Sunscreen Spray (Rs 1,450); Lancôme UV Expert XL Shield Fresh Aqua Gel SPF 50 (Rs 2,900)

Body Talk

Products to Use: Wikka Jasmine Body Freshener (Rs 600); Forest Essentials Jasmine Cologne (Rs 3,200)

Foot Fetish

Those legs get all the attention in summer dresses. Regular pedicures and mositurization are good, but get yourself a home-kit too for weekly exfoliation regime. “Scrub with dry finger tips for 2-3 minutes to get rid of dry, dead skin,” says Kochhar.

Products to Use: VLCC Pedicure Kit and Foot Care Kit For Home (Rs 480)

Night Cap

Products to Use: Estée Lauder Nutritious Vitality8 Overnight Creme and Mask (Rs 4,000); Vichy Aqualia Thermal Night Spa (Rs 1,690) and Vichy Awakening Eye Balm (Rs 1,350)

spa-ecial treatment

No matter how diligent you are with CTOM (cleansing, toning, oiling and moisturizing), getting spa treatments by professionals is the best gift you can give to your skin. Ask spa managers to help select a daily skincare regime.
