The tragedy is that you can’t stop growing older, but what you can do is protect your skin in order to maintain those killer looks you have right now. How? Is that even possible? The answer is yes. Following a night skincare regime can add years to your skin leaving it flawless.
So, if you wish to look your best irrespective of the age, follow the 6 nighttime skincare steps to replenish and repair the skin.
1. Cleanse like a Pro
Cleansing is the first step towards a perfect skincare routine, whether it’s in the morning or at night. Often ignored by many, make sure you do not commit the same mistake as them. It acts as an initial phase which helps to get rid of the makeup. In addition, all the dirt and impurities settled on the skin throughout the day too. So, before hitting the bed, always remember to cleanse your face with a good quality cleanser. Further, washing your face with cold or lukewarm water can help to open the clogged pores. Thus, helping to get rid of the unwanted residues.
2. Get that Makeup off your Face
Cleansing alone at times does not remove all the makeup. Therefore, trust us, investing your time in just following this one extra step will be worth keeping your skin happy for the years to come. So, don’t slack off. Instead get a good natural makeup remover to get rid of all the stubborn waterproof products. Or, even better, use coconut oil or tea tree oil to clean up your face no matter how tired you are. Or, wash your face with a natural tea tree oil soap.
3. Invest in an Anti-Aging Serum
Whether you’re in your 20s or 80s, incorporating an anti-aging serum in a night skincare routine is the best you can do for the skin. The one’s in their 20s might be wondering if it’s way too early to go all anti-aging, isn’t it? But, then are you getting any younger? No, right? So, why wait for the wrinkles to appear? Get on with it right now by using retinol based products. Whereas the women in their 30s, upgrade your effective anti-aging creams of 20s with a rich serum to sleep in. It will help to maintain the elasticity of the skin by encouraging elastin and collagen production.
4. Hydrate your Skin
Nowadays one thing that most people are well aware of is the need to keep their skin hydrated day in and day out. Well, thanks to that, our job has become a bit easier. So, if you’ve been moisturizing your skin every morning, continue to do it. But, doing it before you go off to sleep is even better. The other truth is that despite the fact cleansing is important, it can strip off the natural oils from the skin. Thus, with the help of a rich moisturizer lock in all the natural oils to not let the skin get dry and flaky. In case you have an oily skin, opt for a water-based moisturizer for better results.
5. The Essential Under Eye Treatment
Are you among one of those women who take a lot of stress or the one who loves staying awake late into the night? If yes, then take a look at your pretty eyes. Being one of the most sensitive parts of the body, they might have taken all the beating for those hard times. So, to deal with the baggy eyes and dark circles caused due to it use an under eye cream every night. It will also help to treat the early signs of aging by maintaining suppleness and elasticity of the skin. It’s more like killing two birds with a single stone. Now, who wouldn’t want that?
6. Night Cream – The Final Step
After following the above night skincare routine, do invest in a rich night cream. Reason being, at night when you go off to dream about wonderful things, that time allows the skin to absorb all the essential nutrients. So, applying a night cream before you go off to bed can ensure that your skin replenishes overnight. Thus, you wake up to a healthy looking flawless skin. Not just that, it will also help to remove the pigments, spots, and wrinkles. So, if you are going to take care of your skin, do it well.
