My Summer Skin Care Routine with POND'S



In childhood, summer meant year end vacations, weeks and weeks of free time to do as one pleases, but sadly, everyone has to grow up, and go to work even when the sun is beating down on us.  We all fear that we’re not quite equipped to deal with the season, and need a helping hand to breeze through the summer months. Strappy shirts and short shorts are pulled out of the closet, but our skin doesn't feel ready! In this season where extreme environmental factors prevail, the sun can actually take a toll on our skin. Our face gets the worst of the impact of the sun, because of the constant exposure to the same. Dirt, pollution and sweat clogs pores and doesn't let our skin breathe in this scorchy weather. All the heat makes us lethargic by the end of the day too! Now, here comes POND'S to the summer skin care rescue with its amazing products. POND'S is a brand which me and my family has been using/observing since years and I have witnessed some fabulous miracles happening to my skin, which is why I refuse to even try any other brand. In last couple of weeks, I developed a particular skin care routine this summer season with the products which I'm sharing with you in this post.





Starting with the cleaning of the face, I use POND'S Tan Removal Scrub (with the pink-white packing) both in morning & night to get rid of all the flakiness, dead skin cells, blackheads, whiteheads & daily tan, which also helps unclog pores, makes my skin breathe and expedites fading of obnoxious scars only to restore a rejuvenated supple skin. It is very gentle and can be used daily. Try as you might, you can’t escape the wrath of the sun, and as a result, tanned skin. Everyone is quite attached to their original skin tone and not a fan of patchily tanned skin, so the suntan needs to leave your skin any how, right? Regular usage of this product helps remove the layer of dead skin cells, dirt and grime from our face. This exposes a fresh layer of skin which can absorb nutrients and moisture. This scrub  has actually revived my skin and also given me a fair, radiant touch.

After the scrub, I use the POND'S Daily Face Wash (with the green-white packing) and every time I use it, it turns my dull tired looking skin into healthy glowing skin. This product from POND'S is suitable for mostly all skin types. I use it twice, daily, which makes my skin soft and smooth, cleaning the remains from the scrub. Irrespective of my hectic schedule and exhaustion, I make sure that I always clean my face twice a day – morning and night. Doing so removes all external impurities and provides a clean canvas to start off. TIP : Always take adequate amount of the scrub or facewash and apply it on the face in circular motion and wash off with plain or lukewarm water.






Once I'm done with the cleaning of my face, I apply POND'S White Beauty Cream, which is a fairness cream mainly for those who have dark circles and a dull skin, like me. This cream helps in the reduction in both cases – lightens, brightens and fades dark spots, while providing instant radiance to my skin. It also helps to cover up uneven patches on my face. Suitable for all skin types, blends with the skin tone naturally making me look a little fairer than my original skin color. The best part about this product is –  1.) It has SPF 15 which is a bonus in all cases. 2.) It has a mousse like fluffy texture which feels incredibly soft and doesn't make my skin feel stretchy or dry at all. 3.) Even though the cream is white in color, it does have a pink tone running through it. TIP : Always dot your face with cream (any cream for that matter), taking small amounts and blend it in the direction of your smile on the cheeks and downwards on the nose.

Now comes the most miraculous product by POND'S which I just fell in love with. It is the All-In-One BB+ Fairness Cream with SPF 30 PA++. Many of you already know I'm not a make-up girl at all. Running away from makeup has been my habit since always, still wanting to look all beautiful and glamorous and this product saves me from using different beauty products like foundations, concealers, etc. saving me from skin problems. As the name suggests, POND'S BB+ (where BB stands for Blemish Balm) cream is an all-in-one product which means it has sophisticated skin lightening cover formula and advanced sunscreen protection, which not only improves my skin texture and effectively lightens skin from within but also provides natural looking instant glow that stays all day long. Being on a duskier side of the complexion scale, I always try finding products that will enhance my complexion and this cream just does that. I use it on a daily basis before stepping out of home, even if I'm not applying the white beauty cream, this one blends with my skin perfectly, also protecting me from the sun (UVA and visible light) just like a sunscreen, while I'm out.






Finally comes the time for moisturizing, and this is the part which I like the most. Some people believe that oily skin does not require moisture. Well, as per my opinion, this dogma is false! Since childhood, I've been using the same body lotion/moisturizer which is by POND'S (even the packing hasn't changed for years now). This product from the POND'S range has provided me with almost 20 years of nourishment and skin smoothening. All summer, all winter, every season! No day of mine passes by without using this lotion on my hands, legs and everywhere (except for my face). It contains triple vitamin B3, E, and C which are the added benefits. It is really thick and creamy, which keeps my skin hydrated and moisturized for good 5-6 hours. It does takes some time to get absorbed in the skin due to its thick consistency but doesn't feel greasy at all. The fragrance is soothing and lingers for long. The updated range of this lotion has UV protection benefit which is the best part now!




Skin pampering is a drudging experience, yet the after feeling of soft and smooth skin is a heavenly outcome. Getting flawless skin is an easy task. It does not require that much hard work but it does require consistency. It’s been a month since I have started following this skin care routine, and I am already noticing the difference. My skin feels more hydrated, pores seem to have reduced a bit and I can barely see any blackheads/whiteheads on my nose or blemishes on my face. I love how skin reprieves from those pimple scars, and invigorates into a soft supple texture. My summer skin care routine with POND'S is going really well and if you ask me, this is something I would highly recommend to all of you as well. POND'S is one of the most trusted brands since years and has launched various products in the recent times. The ones mentioned in this post are my personal favorites, also because they are so handy that I can carry them everyday with me in my bag, to work or outings and keep touching up whenever I get time; specially the All-In-One BB+ cream which is a must have, so you don't need to buy a sunscreen, then a fairness cream, then a foundation, then concealer, etc. which saves a lot of money too. Well, I hope you liked this post and will gain something out of my skin care routine so as to adapt it in your own routines, and yield benefits.

She is such a sweetheart that she made me so comfortable while posing for pictures in a public cafe, also convincing me so sweetly (with a pinch of strictness) to put that red lipstick on and tie my hair back which I'd always been so shaky about. She turned me into a glam doll and I just can't thank her enough!
