We’ll share a secret with you, sometimes the best way to end a day is with a gorgeous night cream and a luxurious skincare routine – you can shut the bathroom door for 10 minutes and just treat your skin to a mini facial and prepare yourself before bed.
The purpose of any night skincare routine is to help your skin repair, correct and support itself. At night your skin isn’t being loaded with makeup, SPF, dirt and impurities from the day and your skincare has a better chance of being more effective for what you need it to do.
Using a silk pillowcase has widely been known to help your skin overnight as it doesn’t absorb your skincare like a cotton pillowcase do and it is much gentler on the skin and suggested to minimise fine lines and wrinkles. Experts have been known to tell which side you sleep on at night just by your skin’s appearance!
The basic steps of any night skincare routine is first a double cleanse to remove makeup, oils and impurities embedded in the skin, a toner to refresh and balance the skin’s pH, a serum to treat and target specific skin concerns, an eye cream to rehydrate and restore and finally a night cream. Add in a mask, an exfoliator, an oil or any other kind of skin treatment as often as needed too!
