Nine brands, nine giveaways, nine winners—The Channel 46 is celebrating #NineDaysOfNavratri with great fervour, bringing you tips, tricks, gifts, and more… every single day. Each day we’re spotlighting a key topic of interest during Navratri; and today, the topic is festive skin care!
It’s almost a given that during Navratri, you’re going to go all out when it comes to makeup and hair. After all, everyone wants to put their best face forward. But, what does that mean for your skin? The layers of makeup for those 9 consecutive days of the festival wreak havoc on your skin barrier, stripping it of its natural oils and also making it more susceptible to acne, fine lines, redness, and even increased sensitivity.
We caught up with our favourite skin care brand Prolixr for a 101 guide on how you can repair the damage caused by heavy-duty makeup during the festival season. Read till the end because that’s where you’ll find details about how you can WIN a festive giveaway from Prolixr.
1. Double Cleanse
Melt away heavy-duty makeup effortlessly with the popular method of double cleansing. Double cleansing is the perfect way to deep-cleanse and remove any makeup residue on the skin. The method involves melting away makeup, impurities and buildup on the skin with an oil cleanser, followed by a second round of cleansing with a gentle face wash to hydrate and clarify the skin.
Exfoliating your skin is an unskippable step in your skincare routine. Heavy makeup can cause oil buildup in the pores, leading to blackheads, whiteheads, and other skin problems. An exfoliating face scrub will buff away dead skin cells and unclog the pores to reveal a brighter, natural glow. However, one must only exfoliate no more than twice a week. This Jeju Volcanic face scrub is made with the goodness of Green Tea Extract and Pomegranate.

A clarifying toner helps tighten open pores and revive dull skin instantly. It smoothens the skin texture and prevents further breakouts to reveal bright, smooth skin. A toner is the ultimate step that leads to flawless makeup application as it shrinks and tightens pores and removes excess oil buildup. A toner also fades dark spots and blemishes, giving the skin a boost of glow and hydration.
