A smart nighttime skincare routine is an important part of keeping your skin healthy, radiant and supple. Before you get your 8 hours of beauty sleep, remember to take care of your skin with the right facial skin care products.
- Use the Right Cleanser for Your Unique Skin Type
The first step to your routine should be to remove any makeup you’re wearing and cleanse your skin of any dirt and oil that’s accumulated on your face during the day. It might be tempting to leave makeup on, but skipping this step or not thoroughly removing makeup can leave traces of it that build up on your skin and leave you with clogged pores. Try Image Skin Care’s Ageless Total Facial Cleanser if you have skin that’s starting to show signs of age.
- Exfoliate, But Not Every Night
Exfoliation of some kind is beneficial for most skin types because it helps to slough off dead skin cells and results in a fresher, brighter skin tone. However, some skin types don’t do well with physical exfoliants that use something with the consistency of sugar or oatmeal to scrub away old skin cells. Likewise, for sensitive skin types, you may want to avoid using washcloths or other scrubbing tools on your face. Chemical exfoliants like AHAs and BHAs are better for those with unpredictable sensitive skin as these accomplish the same thing as physical exfoliants but in a different way. Remember that you don’t need to exfoliate every day.
- Choose a Serum
After you’ve cleansed your face, you should apply a serum of some type. There are lots of different skin serum options you can choose from. Image Skin Care’s The Max Stem Cell Serum is great for aging skin, or you can try Peter Thomas Roth’s Instant Firmx Eye temporary eye tightener to deal with under eye circles.
- Eye Cream
Even if you’re in your 20s and 30s, it’s not a bad idea to start using an eye cream. The sooner you start using these products, the sooner they may start to reduce any wrinkles you have and perhaps fend off new ones. One of our favorite products is the Iluma Intense Brightening Eye Creme from Image Skin Care, which helps fight signs of age as well as other eye area issues like puffiness.
A good moisturizer might be one of the most important things you do for your skin. Even people with naturally oily skin can still benefit from an oil-free moisturizer. If you’re starting to see wrinkles, try an anti aging cream.
- Get Your 8 Hours
It’s not something you can purchase from a store, but getting enough sleep can do wonders for your skin over time, just like sleep deprivation can make your skin look dull and result in under-eye circles.
Get into the habit of taking care of your skin at the end of the day, and with regular attention, you’ll be able to see a huge improvement in the health and tone of your skin.
