Cleansing is of great importance for the working woman, who leaves home to get to work, battling through traffic and exposing herself to the grime and pollutants in the air.

Always cleanse the skin at night, before going to bed, so that you can remove make-up, stale sweat and oil deposits, as well as dirt and pollutants.

A tulsi neem face wash would be ideal for summer. It would help to remove impurities, soothe and protect the skin from eruptions and rashes.

After cleansing, tone the skin with chilled rose water or a rose-based skin tonic. It not only refreshes and cools the skin, but also helps to stimulate blood circulation to the skin surface and add a glow.

A matte moisturiser is ideal if the weather is hot and humid. For dry skins, spray on a moisture mist. If your work entails traveling, apply a sunscreen. For oily skin, oil-free sunscreen is available.

Use a facial scrub two or three times a week. A facial scrub helps to remove dead cells and provides deep cleansing of the skin. It brightens and refines the skin.

If your skin is dry, nourish it at night, after cleansing. Apply a nourishing cream and massage it into the skin, using circular strokes. The pressure should be more as you go upwards and slightly outwards. Wipe it off after 3 to 4 minutes of massage.

Twice a week use a face mask. Apply it on the face, avoiding the lips and area around eyes. Wash it off when it is dry.
To refresh your make-up, you need to carry a few items in your handbag.

During summer, fragrant wet tissues can be most refreshing. They are easily available. Use them to cleanse the skin and remove grease and sweat. A powder compact of pressed powder is also handy.

It helps to get rid of that oily look in summer. First wipe with the tissues and then dab powder. You also need a lipstick to touch-up after lunch.

Apply powder on the lips and then apply lipstick. Remember to carry a small bottle of cologne, or your favourite deodorant.
