Do you want your skin to look flawless? If yes, you need to take care of it not only in the day but at night as well. You need to understand the basic difference between the products you use during the day as well as at night. Basically, the products you use in the daytime are meant for UV rays as well as other environmental aggressors, whereas the products you use at night are meant to repair your skin cells.
What matters, even more, is the order in which you apply those products to your skin. Here is the order you should follow when following a night skincare routine.
1. Remove your makeup
The biggest sin you can commit against your skin is by going to bed with makeup on. Most of the makeup products you use are waterproof therefore, washing your face with water is not enough. Starting your night care routine with either an oil-based remover or massaging your face with olive oil or coconut oil and then removing all the makeup by using a cotton pad is going to do wonders for your skin.
2. Use a cleanser
Having a properly cleansed face is something that is an important as well as an overlooked step. Choosing a cleanser that is suitable for your skin is very important for removing all the excess dirt from your face. For the most effective results what you should go for is double-cleansing.
Exfoliating your skin is also quite important for clearing your pores and removing dead skin cells. You can use a clay mask as it is something that acts best in unclogging your skin and rejuvenating it. You should skip this step when you have very sensitive or irritated skin already.
4. Use a toner or hydrating mist
Many of you might think that toners are an absolute waste of money, but just ask somebody who uses the product regularly and you would realize the magic it can do to your skin. After all the dust and oil have been removed from your skin toner helps in giving it the proper nourishment. This easy-to-use product is important in both your daytime and night skincare regime.
5. Treat your spots and apply serum
These anti-inflammatory products with highly concentrated formulas are meant to target specific spots. Applying it right after the toner is best suited. This treatment can show results overnight. You should consider skipping this step if you have spotless skin.
6. Apply eye cream
The night is the only time your eyes finally get rest, so how can a proper night skincare routine be complete without a good eye cream. The area around your eyes is the most delicate one and can show the signs of aging sooner than any other part. So, a rich eye cream can help solve all these appearance-related issues. All you need to do is put a little amount of cream under your eyes and dab it.
This is the final step of your night skincare regime. It helps you lock all the goodness you just provided to your skin. No matter what skin type you have, applying a good moisturizer is a must if you want to wake up with healthy skin.
