The elixir for wrinkle-free and healthy skin is sunscreen. You must be wondering when a lot of acids are gaining traction, why is sunscreen the secret recipe? It’s because no matter what you slap on your skin, your skincare is incomplete without sunscreen, especially during the day.
Sun rays are incredibly harmful to your skin (the entire body). The UV rays can not only damage your skin but can also cause skin cancer! Alarming right? We got you covered.

Keep scrolling to learn the game-changing way to incorporate sunscreen in your skincare. This CTM (cleansing, toning, moisturizing) routine is what the Japanese follow to get that flawless look.
A hydrating face wash
The foremost step to face care is washing your face with a face cleanser that does not leave your face dry. It should deep cleanse by removing all the dirt and oil while keeping your skin supple. A general rule of thumb is to pick a face wash suitable for all skin types.
The Thyme Organic Dryness Control Face Wash contains pink pepper essence oil, lavender extract, Apple Extract, Carrot Extract, Glycerin, and aqua. These ingredients nourish and moisturise your face while cleansing at the same time.
No more clogged pores with a toner
The next step is to use a gentle face toner. Toners can help close or shrink pores and tighten cell gaps after cleansing. This reduces the penetration of impurities into your skin. The perfect toner will hydrate, provide anti-ageing benefits, and may also boost collagen production.
Our Femica skin care products comprise the Love co. Rose Water Spray For Face, a 3-in-1 toner. It is rich in vitamin C, an anti-ageing ingredient that boosts collagen production and gives a healthy glow.
Invest in a face serum
Serums are the new hype in skin care. Why so? They are supposed to deliver high concentrations of active acids/ingredients for effective skin care. Your morning skincare must include a vitamin C serum for the face because it helps with pigmentation and prevents sun damage and free radicals.
The highly potent COSIQ Vitamin C-23% Face Serum contains only two ingredients – ethylated ascorbic acid three and ethyl ascorbic acid. These vitamin c derivatives convert into 100% L – ascorbic acid – best for skin tightening.
A Hydrating Moisturiser
No matter your skin type, the skin usually gets oily during the day, especially in the summer. One of the common misconceptions is that people with oily skin should avoid moisturizers. Of course not! Moisturisers for oily skin help retain the water in your skin and help reduce the production of excess oil. Look for water-based or oil-free moisturisers if you have oily or acne-prone skin.
The Earth Rhythm Phyto-Ceramide Deep Moisturiser contains hyaluronic acid (the OG acid) that helps reduce fine lines and retain moisture. The vitamin E in it also prevents skin damage caused by free radicals.
Glow oil for a radiant skin
Let your skin do the shining and glow with the help of facial oil. A nourishing facial oil will repair, hydrate, and contain anti-oxidants to prevent skin ageing. Facial oil for glowing skin will take your skincare up a notch with an extra layer of sheen and glow.
The Disguise Cosmetics Rainbow Glow Oil will help you attain that glass-skin look. You can mix it with your moisturizer for a full-body sheen or use it as a makeup base for a dewy look.
Never go a day without sunscreen
The final and most important step is applying sunscreen. The damage that the sun can cause is preventable with a high-SPF sunscreen. As SPF increases, the level of protection increases. Sunscreen for oily skin also acts as a moisturizer and prevents sunburn, skin cancer, and premature ageing.
Sunscreen will be your cheapest investment if you want to look like 20 when you are 40. Our Sun Scoop Fluid Sunscreen for All Skin Types with SPF 60 is water-based sunscreen for oily skin, so there is no stickiness. Also, say no to white casts that almost every sunscreen is notoriously famous for.
- Follow the three-finger method – Squeeze out at least three full-finger-length amounts and apply generously on your face.
- Do not forget the neck, ears, the area behind it, and exposed parts.
- Reapply every 2-3 hours if you are constantly under the sun.
A good skin care regimen is backed by science, and many people above 50 who look young are living testimony to this. Femica has the solution to all your skin care needs. You are just one step away from having the perfect routine for which your skin will thank you.

1. What is the best sunscreen for oily skin?
Water-based and non-comedogenic sunscreen is best for oily skin.
2. How to choose the right SPF?
Higher SPF numbers mean higher protection. For instance, SPF 30 sunscreens filter out about 97% of UVB rays compared to SPF 50, which filters about 98%. SPF 60 will filter out a little more. So if you are indoors, you can go for lower SPFs but higher if you plan to be outdoors.
Try to choose sunscreen for oily skin as you will tend to sweat more with it.
3. Is it safe to use vitamin C and sunscreen?
It is the best combination. If you apply vitamin c and forget sunscreen, be ready to welcome sunburns. Vitamin C becomes unstable when exposed to light and causes hyperpigmentation. So let it seep in, apply sunscreen and then step out.
