Tips:

  1. Start with 1-2 times per week and gradually built up the strength.
  2. If you experience redness, mix 2-3 drops of it to the moisturiser and then use.
  3. You may use it AM or PM, however, if you experience redness or skin sensitivity with its usage in day time then use it only in PM routine.
  4. Sunscreen in the day time is a must.

I hope this customised Skincare Routine Post is useful to you all to some extend, I do feel that this is insufficient, but let’s see how this thing turns out after all 3 posts. Also, considering the current COVID-19 situation, either the websites are not able to deliver the products or have no stock of products. As soon as I get an update on anything, I will update you all through my Instagram Stories. Hopefully, things resume to normal very soon.
