What’s the best way to care for your skin at night you say? Continuing on our sleep-themed skin care today we have some fantastic tips on how a simple night time regime can help you look great and feel fresh each morning. No expensive creams and lotions just a few simple steps to sleep like a beauty and wake up like a princess.
There are so many products on the market for you to use on your skin specifically at night time, to help the natural process of rejuvenation at night its not the specific cream that we believe is important, but rather a good skin care regime before retiring to bed.
Keep it clean – Remove your make up, especially around the eyes. It’s good to get rid of the grime of the day, so gently wash your skin with a soft cloth or use a mild cleanser. A clean surface will allow creams and lotions to penetrate better.
Moisturise – Night-time is a perfect time to moisturise. Often creams and lotions for use at night are a little thicker than those we use in the day to get that extra hydration. Don’t forget your neck.
Special creams – Serums and anti-wrinkle creams are ideal for application at bedtime. Research into our buying habits shows that moisturisers account for 59% of all women’s facial skincare sales. The anti-ageing or anti-wrinkle varieties are the most popular type, accounting for close to £2 in every £5 spent on women’s moisturisers.
Attention all areas – Eye cream and lip balm are also good to apply at night.
On your back – Sleeping on your side or front can cause creases in your face, across your forehead and around your nose and chin – more so as you get older. If you sleep on your back you may be able to avoid those sleep lines.
