A Step By Step Night Time Skin Routine That’s Quick & Easy To Follow
At the end of a long day more often than not all we want to do is head straight to bed. Whilst it is good to maximise the amount of rest you get it is not good for your skin to skip your skincare routine. If you think about your day, think about all the pollution, harsh weather, and dirt that your skin is exposed to and then think about all the damage that this can cause to your skin, you can clearly see why it is important to develop good habits in regard to skin care. Read on for our tips about what should be included in a good nighttime skincare routine.
Going to bed in your makeup is a big no-no. There are a few reasons for this, firstly, during your sleep makeup can mix with dirt and oil on the surface of your skin, leading to clogged pores and then spots. Secondly, it can cause your skin to look dull as makeup settles into fine lines and creases. Lastly, it can act as a barrier to any products that you apply over the top to help maintain skin condition. Always use a good makeup remover, therefore, to ensure your skin is left with no residue makeup.
You would be forgiven for thinking you could skip this step if you have already removed your makeup, but a good skincare routine is built on ensuring that all dirt and debris is removed from the skin before bed. At night blood flow to the skin increases, it is one of the bodies natural ways of rejuvenating the skin during rest. With increased blood flow, however, there is also increased absorption of anything on the surface of the skin. You really want to take advantage of this further on in your skincare routine with your moisturiser, you do not want the skin to be absorbing leftover dirt instead. Choose a cleanser that works for your skin type, and scrub, scrub, scrub, not forgetting the neck and chest area.
This should not be done every day, but two or three days out of the week you should exfoliate your skin to remove dead skin cells from the surface. You should concentrate on your nose and cheeks because these areas are prone to blackheads, just don’t overdo it.
Toner works wonders in reducing the size of your pores. Not only, therefore, will it help ensure that all dirt and debris is removed from the skin, but it also reduces the risk that any that still makes it through will be absorbed into the pores. Your skin will also look healthier with visibly smaller pores, do not skip this part of your nighttime skincare routine.
The last part of your skincare routine is to moisturise. Moisturiser is a great way to fight signs of ageing, to help with common skin problems and to reduce the appearance of blemishes. Hydrating the skin through the night will work wonders for your skin, so make sure that you don’t skip this step with a night cream by Sond.
Follow this nighttime skincare routine and you can look forward to glowing skin and you can actually slow down signs of ageing. It just wouldn’t make sense to skimp on protecting something so important.
