The Philosophy: “Skin First, Work Second”

“Skin First, Work Second” is all about making skin health a priority, even when you are super busy. This mindset helps keep your skin healthy, glowing, and strong, no matter how crazy life gets.

Your Skin in Pakistan

Pakistan’s climate, with its hot summers and cold winters, really affects your skin. Add in pollution and stress, and taking care of your skin becomes even more important.

Busy professionals, students, and homemakers often skip their skincare routines because they don’t have the time, which can lead to skin problems.

Adopting a “Skin First” approach is key to keeping your skin vibrant and preventing long-term damage.

Challenges Busy Pakistanis Face Today

People with packed schedules often deal with:

  • Not enough time for regular skincare
  • Pollution and tough environmental conditions
  • High stress levels affecting skin health
  • Irregular eating and sleeping habits

Team Glow & GO Skin Clinic in Lahore has put together exclusive skin care tips for all those busy Pakistani men and women, full time moms and college / varsity goers and…anyone and everyone who has NO time for themselves. You are welcome!

Morning Skin Care Routine

Cleanse Gently
Start your day by using a gentle cleanser that matches your skin type to wash away any dirt, sweat, and impurities from the night. If you have oily skin, go for a foaming or gel-based cleanser. For dry and sensitive skin, cream or lotion-based cleansers are your best bet.

Tone and Balance
Toners help balance your skin’s pH and get it ready for the next steps. If you have oily skin, look for toners with witch hazel. For dry skin, pick one with hyaluronic acid. Steer clear of alcohol-based toners as they can dry out your skin.

Moisturize
Keep your skin hydrated by applying a lightweight moisturizer. Gel-based formulas are great for oily skin, cream-based ones work well for dry skin, and a balanced formula is perfect for combination skin. If you have sensitive skin, use hypoallergenic products.

Sun Protection
Always finish your morning routine with a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30 to shield your skin from UVA and UVB rays. This helps prevent premature aging, hyperpigmentation, and skin cancer.

Night Skin Care Routine

Remove Makeup

The American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) has underscored that sleeping with makeup hinders the skin’s natural repair processes, leading to oxidative stress and skin damage.

One of the most important skin care tips has to be removing makeup, no matter how light or heavy it is. Before bed, make sure to remove your makeup with a remover suited to your skin type. Micellar water works well for all skin types, taking off makeup without stripping away natural oils.

Cleanse Thoroughly
Do a double cleanse, especially if you’ve been exposed to pollution or heavy makeup. Start with an oil-based cleanser to break down makeup and sunscreen, then follow up with a gentle foaming cleanser to remove any remaining impurities.

Serums and Treatments

Nighttime is perfect for using serums and treatments to target specific skin issues. For acne-prone skin, try products with salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide. For anti-aging, look for treatments with retinol or vitamin C. Use targeted treatments like retinol, hyaluronic acid, or niacinamide for anti-aging, hydration, and brightening.

Moisturize and Nourish

At night, go for a richer moisturizer to help with skin repair and regeneration. Look for ingredients like niacinamide, peptides, and ceramides to boost hydration and strengthen your skin barrier.

Weekly To Monthly Skin Care Tips

  • Exfoliation and Chemical Peels Treatment Melasma Treatment with Chemical Peel

Exfoliating once or twice a week helps get rid of dead skin cells and promotes healthy cell turnover. 

For oily skin, using a chemical exfoliant with AHAs or BHAs can be really effective. If you have dry or sensitive skin, a gentle physical exfoliant is recommended to avoid irritation.

Chemical peels at our Gulberg Lahore clinic are a great option for tackling skin issues such as melasma, acne scars, pigmentation, and fine lines. These treatments involve applying a chemical solution to the skin, which exfoliates the top layers, revealing fresh, new skin underneath.

Benefits of Chemical Peels:

  • 🔷Treats acne and acne scars
  • 🔷Reduces sun damage and pigmentation
  • 🔷Promotes collagen production
