As you know that CTM means Cleansing. Toning. Moisturising. These steps aren’t just the three vital steps to ensuring glowing, fresh and youthful skin; these are the basic skin hygiene regimen too. Men think it is only required by women, but that's wrong, men need equal skin care as women. People know about cleaning, toning, and moisturising (or C-T-M, as these are called in short) but they are not regular about it or tend to skip one step or two. Missing the order might not give you the desired Christmas skin glow. Last but not the least; you need to do C-T-M twice a day – once in morning, once before bedtime for quicker results.

However, applying sunscreen on the daily basis, whether you plan to be outdoors or not. Your skin will thank you for it down the line. The sunscreen lotions helps to protect the skin from harmful particles in the air. These particles can be found at home too. Essential proteins in the skin like keratin are protected when sunscreen is applied. These proteins are primarily responsible for keeping the skin smooth, gleeful and healthy.
