AM vs PM Skincare Routine

AM and PM routines serve different purposes. AM or morning skincare routine is meant to protect your skin as you go about your day, while your PM or nighttime skincare routine should focus on repairing, replenishing and rejuvenating your skin after a long day of exposure to makeup, sun, dirt and pollution. 

When the needs of your skin vary from morning to night, so should the product usage. Here is how you can make the most of your products with this AM - PM skincare routine. 

AM Skincare Routine

Your morning skincare sets the foundation for your day. As you’re out and about, your skin is exposed to environmental stressors from which it needs protection. This is what your AM routine does - protects and hydrates. Keeping these goals in mind, we swear by this minimalist skincare routine - 

Step 1 - Cleanser

The first step to any skincare regimen is cleansing your skin. Use a gentle cleanser to wash your face to do away with any impurities or oils that may have accumulated on your skin overnight. This will freshen your skin and prepare it for the next products.

Sandiva’s Unsoap Bathing Bar brings a luxurious and gentle cleansing experience to your skin. This is a soap-free and sulphate-free cleansing bar which is suitable for all skin types and can be used on the face and body. It is available in three variants - Sandalwood, Hasayan Damask Rose and Kashmiri Saffron, all of which are specially formulated with pure Sandalwood dust for gentle exfoliating and anti-microbial purifying action.

Step 2 - Serum

Next step - serum. They are lightweight and can easily be absorbed by the skin. Aimed to enrich your skin with antioxidants, they target specific skin concerns like pigmentation, acne, dryness and wrinkles.

Daily Hydrating Super Serum by Sandiva is your skin’s everyday essential. Specially formulated as a lightweight hydrating gel for easy absorption and a smooth, non-greasy finish, it is packed with the magic of Niacinamide, Patchouli and Sandalwood to hydrate, reduce signs of ageing and keep your skin looking beautifully plumped and bright.

Step 3 - Primer

Follow up your serum with a primer. This helps with additional hydration and prepares it for your everyday grind. It not only acts as a protective shield against external stressors like sweat, dust and pollution but also prepares your skin for makeup. 

One & Done Protective Primer from Sandiva is a one-step high-performance, lightweight skin shield packed with scientifically formulated, potent purifying and balancing naturals such as Sandalwood, Black Cumin oil, and Moringa Oil. While your regular moisturiser does not protect your skin from the damage related to sweat and grime build-up, the One & Done Protective Primer has been formulated for exactly these situations. 

Step 4 - Sunblock

Your morning skincare routine is incomplete without sunblock. Whether you’re spending your day indoors or heading out in the sun, using this is not optional. Use sunblock with at least SPF 30+ to protect your skin from UVA and UVB sun damage, and to put a stop to premature ageing. 

Sandiva’s One & Done Tinted Sunblock prevents white cast and blends smoothly into your skin as a one-step quick protection-and-light makeup routine in the morning. The goodness of Sandalwood calms inflammation from sun damage. Our SPF Top Up Loose Powder goes hand-in-hand with the sunblock for on-the-go re-application use, which is available in complimentary shades. When your sunblock begins to lose its potency during the day, just dab this powder like a compact for lightweight coverage but heavy-duty sun protection. 

PM Skincare Routine

After everything the skin has been exposed to during the day, it goes into restorative mode at night. This is the best time to incorporate treatments targeted to your specific skin issues. Using the right products will be super beneficial for your skin. Make this skincare routine at home your go-to and experience the difference - 

Step 1 - Cleanser

Cleansing your skin at the end of the day will rid it of any makeup you might have used, along with the dirt, oil and pollutants that gathered on it during the day. A double cleanse will leave you feeling fresh and prep your skin for your nighttime skincare routine. 

You don’t need to splurge on any other cleanser apart from Sandiva’s Unsoap Bathing Bar. A go-to cleanser for your AM - PM skincare routine, it is as gentle on your face as it is on the rest of your body. It also maintains your skin’s natural pH range of 5.5-6 without stripping its natural oils.

Step 2 - Serum

Just as in your morning skincare routine, the second step of your nighttime routine is serum. Since it aims to target specific skin concerns, using it at night does wonders. However, your night serum should be different from your day serum.

With Overnight Revitalising Super Serum by Sandiva, your beauty sleep is no longer a myth. It works tirelessly while you sleep to nourish and transform your skin with luxuriously revitalising Sweet Almond Oil, Vitamin E, Patchouli and Sandalwood oil. It gives you a range of benefits, such as cellular regeneration, hydration, anti-ageing and brightening.

Step 3 - Moisturiser

Last but not least, apply a nourishing and hydrating moisturiser of your choice to replenish the skin's moisture barrier. Make sure your moisturiser is rich in ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, niacinamide, and ceramides to lock in hydration overnight.

In your quest for radiant skin, it should never be AM vs PM skincare routine, but always AM - PM skincare routine. Both these regimens have their own benefits and are equally important for healthy and glowing skin. But remember that consistency is key! Invest time and effort in your skin every single day for the best results.
