When it comes to our skin, we all know that we should be looking after it. A night-time skincare routine is quite an essential step to ensuring your skin looks at its best.
Here’s a few tips about why you should incorporate a night time skin routine into your everyday.
Night Time Cleansing This step is definitely one of the more important. Did you know that touching your face all day long, without intentionally doing so, makes your face one of the dirtiest parts of your body? I know a lot of you cheekily go to sleep with a full face on (I mean, we have all done it) but this is a huge step towards bad skin health. Make sure you are removing your makeup and cleansing to avoid the spread of acne bacteria and those ingredients in makeup sitting in your skin.
Using Beneficial Skin Products With The Right Ingredients During the day your skin requires ingredients that have protection from the elements (like sunscreen) so at night when your skin is regenerating, it makes sense to use products that are going to help with repairing the skin and helping with anti-inflammation. Products such as our Synergie A, B + Superserums and DermaCalm can help with this. Talking to Dr Lizzy about your skin concerns, she can suggest the right Synergie products for your routine.
Change Your Pillowcase Frequently But why? The material will hold bacteria and oil from previous nights and even contain residue from makeup/tan left on. Especially for people with acne-prone skin, it’s best to sleep on a fresh, clean pillow case.
Tip: Don’t forget to wash your hands before bed. Most of us sleep with our hands touching our face at some point during the night and whatever is on our hands will transfer to your face leading to possible congestion or contact dermatitis issues! Be mindful of this.
An Evening Routine Sets You Up For a Good Night’s Rest
It’s simply amazing how a routine at night can wind you down and get you ready for better sleep. By allowing yourself to make a skin routine a part of your everyday, you’re also encouraging a healthy sleep pattern. This can assist in reducing dark circles under your eyes and reduce stress levels. Stress can aggravate all skin conditions like acne and eczema etc.
As you can see, there is a lot to consider at night when it comes to keeping your skin looking beautiful. Be sure to tend to your skin as it will definitely benefit you in the long run.
