5 Tips For Perfect Nighttime Skin
We all know we should wash our face at night and remove any makeup before going to bed. But what else should you do? Your nighttime routine can affect how your skin looks the next day, so it better be good. Here’s a few tips to keep your skin healthy all night long.
1. Apply a toner
After you’ve your basic cleaning your face, use a toner that is specifically made for your skin type. For example, those with dry or normal skin shouldn’t use toners that contain alcohol or it can irritate or dry your skin. Toners help to remove any extra makeup and cleanser still on your face.
2. Exfoliate (But Not Too Much)
You should only exfoliate two or three times a week. The more often you do it, the more it can dry your skin. Dr. Lawrence Day, a North Carolina dermatologist suggests saving your time to exfoliate after a night out on the weekend or an active day. That way you can rid your skin of impurities that cause adult achne or craters in the skin around your cheeks and eyes.
3. Put on a layer of moisturizer all over the face and neck.
The biggest difference between daytime and nighttime moisturizers is that the former are lighter in consistency and often contain sunscreen. The consistency of nighttime moisturizers may not feel or look aesthetically pleasing to the user, but they make skin soft and supple.
When searching for an evening facial moisturizer, be sure to read the ingredients label for antioxidants, peptides and vitamins C and A to help replenish your skin from the day. You can’t really go wrong with pure and simple hydrating products.
