We understand the importance of an evening beauty routine, a key part of your daily regimen that allows your skin to repair and rejuvenate overnight, plus giving you a moment to ‘switch off’ from the day. Allow our comprehensive guide to take you on a step-by-step tour, creating a truly effective night face care routine. And step into a relaxing spa-like dream with us… 


The Importance of a Night Time Skincare Routine

A dedicated night-time skincare routine is not just a treat, it's a must-have. As your body rests, your skin goes through a natural restoration process, healing from the day's environmental impacts like sun exposure and pollution. By committing to a regular night time skincare routine, you can support your skin's repair process, aiding it to rejuvenate more effectively. Because this is when your skin is ‘resting’ this gives your more active products like your serum a chance to do their best work, without any interruptions or touching your face which we often do!

From washing away dirt and makeup from the day to applying targeted treatments and moisturisers, a night routine for skin care offers a plethora of benefits. It keeps your skin clean, curbs breakouts, and using products specifically designed for night use can provide intense hydration and repair damaged skin cells, leading to a more youthful and radiant complexion.

While you sleep, increased blood circulation to your skin allows for better product absorption. This means that the active ingredients in your night time skincare products can penetrate deeper into the skin, enhancing their effectiveness. Make your night time skincare routine a priority and wake up to healthier, radiant skin every morning.

Your Step-by-Step Guide to the Perfect Night Time Skincare Routine

For a glowing complexion, an all-rounded night face care routine is key. This guide will take you through the essentials of an effective skincare regimen that will leave your skin feeling and looking at its best.

Cleanser: Every skincare routine should begin with a cleanser, and in the evening we always recommend a double cleanse. This can be with the same cleanser or something that has a different texture e.g. a balm for the first cleanse, then a cream or oil for the second cleanse. 

IN THE BEGINNING Deep Cleansing Melt makes for a perfect first cleanse, really nourishing and effortlessly lifts away makeup, oils and impurities. The balm breaks down into a nourishing oil that you remove with a damp muslin cloth. Follow up with DUAL ACT Purifying Cleansing Lotion or EASY GLOWING Transforming Cleansing Gelee which are both brilliant second cleansers to help remove any last traces of makeup and give your skin balance and glow. 

Toner: This step is often overlooked but your toner can help to balance the skin and its pH levels. We love to use a toner to refresh our skin and deliver extra benefits you would’ve otherwise missed!

TONING ESSENCE Balancing Tonic Mist can be used as a hydration mist or spritzed onto a cotton pad and swept over the skin. For extra exfoliating action, GLOWCOLIC Resurfacing Toner is a great option in a night time skincare routine as it lifts away dead skin cells, causing uneven skin tone and dullness. For a soothing, calming option, BE QUIET Soothing Milky Toner includes prebiotic biolin, alpine rose and niacinamide with brilliant anti-inflammatory benefits.

Serum: This is your ‘treat’ stage, a serum is something you’d pick based on your skin concerns and something you’d actively like to improve in your skin overall. For example someone who experiences dullness would love our LET’S CONCENTRATE Skin Glowing Serum, it features vitamin C to brighten and hydrating sodium hyaluronate. 

Overnight Mask: While your skin is resting overnight, an overnight mask is the perfect way to help indulge your skin and add in those extra ingredients your skin is craving. Naturally our skin loses moisture throughout the day, so an overnight mask like QUENCH Deep Hydration Mask delivers extra nourishment to the skin so by morning it’s plumper, firmer and brighter overall.

Moisturiser: This is a great alternative to an overnight mask, a rich moisturiser that helps restore hydration levels and leave your skin soft and smooth. REPOSE Relaxing Night Cream is our night time moisturiser of choice, fusing brilliant skincare benefits with soothing essential oils to switch off with… No wonder it’s our best-seller and known as ‘a good night’s sleep in a jar’!

The Science Behind Effective Skincare Ingredients

To achieve a glowing complexion, it's crucial to understand the science behind skincare ingredients. Each ingredient, from sodium hyaluronate and biolin to niacinamide and natural Mediterranean extracts, plays a vital role in your night routine for skin care.

Sodium hyaluronate is a hydration hero, drawing and locking moisture in the skin. Including this ingredient in your routine can help to diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Niacinamide, or vitamin B3, helps to regulate sebum production, making it suitable for all skin types. This versatile ingredient also helps to minimise pore appearance, even out skin tone, and strengthen the skin's barrier.

Natural Mediterranean ingredients, such as botanical extracts and essential oils, can also provide potent skincare benefits. They can soothe inflammation, promote collagen production, and impart a healthy glow to your skin. We also include a fusion of aromatherapy essential oils that help calm, relax and soothe the skin and mind, creating an experience not just for your skin but your overall mood too. 

At TEMPLESPA, our night time skincare products blend scientifically backed ingredients with natural extracts to deliver the best results.


Creating a Routine Tailored to Your Skin Type

A flawless complexion requires a customised skincare routine. Understanding your skin type and choosing suitable products is crucial to address your unique concerns and deliver the best results.

Identifying your skin type is the first step. Whether you have normal, oily, dry, combination, or sensitive skin, we have a product to address your concerns. For instance, normal skin types may benefit from a gentle cleanser, toner, and moisturiser. Oily skin types may find oil-free cleansers and lightweight moisturisers beneficial, while dry skin types may require hydrating cleansers and rich moisturisers.

Furthermore, treating specific skin concerns is key. Whether it's acne, ageing, hyperpigmentation, dullness, or other issues, incorporating serums, masks, and targeted treatments can effectively address these concerns.

Bonus Additions for Your Night Time Routine

Enhance your night time skin care with a few special extras. Incorporating eye creams and special treatments can boost your regimen, while properly massaging in your moisturiser can improve blood circulation and product absorption. Even massaging tools like EYE THERAPIST or THE SCULPTOR can help to further enhance your night time skincare routine 

Consider using a silk pillowcase to minimise sleep lines, a hydrating lip balm for soft lips, and a diffuser or room mist with calming essential oils for a spa-like ambiance. These special extras can elevate your self-care ritual and help you achieve healthier, glowing skin.
