Why is CTM Essential?

CTM is essential because by the end of it you have

  • Removed all the unwanted & harmful dirt, dust & pollution that you may have accumulated.
  • Restored the PH balance & nutrition to your skin.
  • Sealed it with a protective layer.

CTM can make a huge contribution to the health of your skin. It enhances your beauty naturally and keeps your skin looking & feeling young. Following this basic skin care mantra can make you keep looking beautiful for longer!

“CTM is an absolute must. It’s the basic skin care regime, one should follow twice every day, for the rest of your life to get and keep younger and healthier skin”, says Ambika Pillai, the renowned makeup artist.

Cleanse

You must begin by removing all unnecessary dirt, dust, debris that may have collected on the face along with makeup if any. Washing your face at least thrice a day is highly recommended with or without CTM.

Use a Soap Free Face Wash suitable for your skin type and wash your face with lukewarm water. Always Pat Dry with a clean cloth or towel. Never rub your face with a towel.

For effective CTM, we recommend Double Cleansing which means you clean your face with a Cleansing Milk or Cream after Face Wash. While we recommend it for all of you, this step is absolutely unavoidable for women who use makeup or have oily skin since this is the only way to gently open the pores and flush out the dirt-oil mix. Else, the entire exercise will be futile.

How to follow the CTM Routine Effectively?

It is best to follow CTM twice a day, every day for the rest of your life. Here are some tips to help you get there.

  • Keep it simple. Use whatever is available. It’s ok if you are missing a cotton pad or an oil free face wash. Start with whatever you have and then build up. Don’t let anything dampen your spirits.
  • You can start with CTM once a day to begin with. This should be immediately after you come back from work or just before going to bed. Once you have followed this religiously for a few days, the results will be inspiring enough for you to do it twice!
  • Don’t be too hard on yourself or disheartened, even if you miss it every once in a while. It’s OK! Just make sure you do not go to bed with makeup on. That will be CRIMINAL.

Wishing a Happy CTM Routine & A Beautiful You, Naturally!
