It’s common knowledge that going to bed without washing your face is bad for your skin, but it’s not always clear what you should follow in your evening skincare routine. Should you exfoliate? When should you put on eye cream? Can you simply slather on a thick layer of cream? If you didn’t know already, new skin cells grow faster while you sleep, so a good evening skincare routine should be of high priority. Read on to see how to best take care of your skin at night, so you can wake up with healthy, glowing skin.
Start With A Good Cleanser
Make sure you remove all makeup and build-up from the day with a cleanser that’s suitable for your skin. If you have normal skin, Clinique Take The Day Off off Cleansing Balm is a good choice.
The creamy lotion re-converts into oil to remove facial makeup, and its fine texture provides a comfortable touch to skin. If you have sensitive skin, use products that are fragrance-free and hypoallergenic.
Gently Tones To Remove Any Impurities
A thorough cleanse doesn’t stop there. Complete your cleansing routine by gently wiping toner on your face. LANCÔME Tonique Confort Re-Hydrating Comforting Toner is a silky-soft moisturizing formula that gently tones and immediately rehydrates the complexion. Instantly soothing and especially adapted to the needs of dry skin, with honey and almond seed extract for perfectly clean, soft and comforted skin.
Serum Replenishes Moistures And Targets Specific Needs
After cleansing, apply serum to your skin to help restore moisture loss during the day and provide care for your specific skin needs. SK-II R.N.A Radical New Age Essence brings you the next level of firmness – lengthwise and crosswise – for poreless, plump skin with a fresh morning glow. Immediately upon application, each drop penetrates deep into your skin, making it firmer, more resilient, and feeling plumper. Choose a suitable serum that targets your skin problems, e.g. anti-aging, wrinkles, dryness, etc.
Tap On Eye Cream
Using eye cream is one simple way to maintain a youthful-looking appearance. La Mer The Eye Balm Intense delivers a profound “sea” change to the delicate eye area. It provides a fast-absorbing formula instantly hydrates skin, and contains a potent blend of ferments, exclusive Marine De-Puff Ferment™ and The Lifting Ferment™.
Apply A Soothing Face Mask
There are a variety of face masks that address different needs — from refining pores to smoothing fine lines. If you are looking for an all-round mask, EVE LOM Rescue Mask is the perfect weekly deep clean to keep your complexion in radiant condition. Infused with Camphor, Almond and Honey-infused Kaolin Clay, this hard-working and versatile mask will get your skin back on track.
A bonus tip to amp up the effect of your evening beauty routine is to get enough sleep. If your body doesn’t get enough sleep, the skincare products can only go so far!
