We all deserve to have beautiful fresh, glowing skin. And what better way to achieve this than when you’re getting your beauty sleep! Here are 5 simple steps you can take whilst pampering your skin just before bed:
ALWAYS remove your makeup before going to sleep. Maintaining a busy work and social life can be difficult, but taking off your makeup at the end of a long day is key. If not, it can lead to breakouts, dull skin complexion and prevent your skincare from working.
A great way to remove your makeup is by using a cleanser. This comes in all different forms: from liquids and creams to balms and wipes; your preference is taken care of. Not only does this step allow your face to feel fresh and clean, but also it allows the other products further down your routine list to perform better, as there are no dead skin cells or dirt blocking them from working their magic.
Moving on from cleanser, using a toner on your skin is the best way to purify and refine your skin as well as removing any last traces of the cleanser. It also closes your pores, which makes your skin ready for the following steps.
Now that your skin is perfectly cleansed and any excess product has been removed, you can start treating the skin. Use a radiating face serum to give your skin an immediate illuminating effect. It will even skin tone and improve the appearance of imperfections and wrinkles. You can use this on your whole face, or specific areas. This step is also great for pre-makeup application!
You may think that eye-cream is not in an essential step in your nighttime routine, and that moisturizer will do the trick. However, it can be too heavy for the eyes and weigh down your delicate skin. Eye cream can target dark circles, reduce lines and puffiness, and provides a long-lasting hydration.
Moisturisation is the final step in your nighttime skincare routine. It protects, hydrates and nourishes your skin whilst you sleep. Moisturisers vary for all different skin types, catering to oilier skin, dry skin, acne prone skin etc. Be sure to choose the product that is most suited to you for the best outcome.
LIPS! The most forgotten area of the face in skincare routines. A treatment lip balm treats chapped, damaged and dry lips. By applying it at nighttime, it provides intense moisture overnight, helping hydrate and heal your lips.
