How many times has it happened that at the end of a busy day, we escape into the tempting embrace of our beds, and wake up feeling refreshed and energetic?
Similarly, our skin rejuvenates itself too as we sleep. Every night, our skin undergoes a self-healing process, which is why it’s important to not just get a full 7-8 hours of sleep every night, but also to invest in a proper night time skin care regime and commit to it every single night. The items in your daytime skincare routine are meant to hydrate and shield the skin from UV rays and other natural aggressors, while those in your night time skincare routine fix skin cells overnight and work towards speedier recuperating. Moreover, anti-maturing items specifically, work best around the night time when your body is at rest.
Daily night time skincare is a simple process which should consist of the following steps –
Step 1 – Remove your Make-up: You should never sleep with make up on. Use a gentle make-up remover or just tap water is also fine as the first step of your nighttime routine.
Step 2- Cleanser: A mild cleanser should be used to cleanse your skin to remove excess oil, dirt, dust, and pollution. It’s best to use the type of cleanser which best suits your skin type.
Step 3- Use a Toner: Crucial for those of us who have clogged pores, toner helps to open and clean pores and helps in making the skin look shinier.
Step 4- Night-time serum: Serums infiltrate your skin and are fabricated to deal with various skin issues. Be careful to not use more than a few drops of serum.
Step 5- Moisturize your skin: Moisturizer helps to hydrate your skin and keep it soft, supple, and younger-looking. It is perhaps the most crucial part of any beauty regime.
Flawless skin doesn’t happen overnight. It takes patience and commitment, so make sure to stick to your night time skincare regime every day!
