Night is a time of rest for the body, mind and the skin. It’s important to establish a night time beauty routine to prepare the face for the night and rejuvenation. Skin-cell renewal is faster at night because collagen is boosted and thus harmful radicals are destroyed. Also, skin temperature is naturally higher at night, which means that your skin is more receptive to active ingredients.
Step 1: Oil
Use oil to wash off makeup before using cleanser, because it instantly melts away all the stubborn makeup. Products like waterproof mascara and eyeliner are harder to rinse off with a gentle cleanser. Also, oils are a great way to massage your face, loosen your nodes and give yourself a little face.
Step 2: Cleanser
Next, gently rub your cleanser in a circular motion on the face. This will remove whatever element of makeup the oil missed. Use a cotton pad to sweep the cleanser across your face.
Step 3: Toner
Most toners are composed of active ingredients that are great for the skin to absorb in the evening. Toners add an extra barrier of moisture to your skin and they are hydrating and calming.
Step 4: Serum
There are many active ingredients in a serum; you just have to find one that fits your skin type. The ingredients in serum have anti-ageing properties, which even out the lines and wrinkles on the face.
Step 5: Moisturiser
Finding a moisturiser that will really penetrate and add moisture to the skin is crucial. The more you keep your skin hydrated and moisturised, the younger and more vibrant you look.
Step 6: Face Oil
Face oil is a great way to lock in all the moisture and it also prepares your face to relax and get ready for bed.
