There’s a reason it’s called “Beauty Sleep.”During the night, skin cells repair and recover from elevated cortisol levels (a stress hormone that can wreak havoc on your body during the day).
Sleep is when most of the body’s recovery and repair take place. The brain sleeps on a conscious level, but the body is very alert and active during sleep. This is where most of the body recovers.
So, to get these effects on your skin, you need to create a night skincare routine. Understanding your skin type is important to understand how to best treat your skin.
You can use dermatological products in KSA that suit your skin type at night. However, it is advised to keep the routine short and concentrate more on the impurity removal and moisturizing part at night.
This article will help you understand the importance of a night skincare routine. We shall also provide you with the steps that you must follow at night, before bed, to maintain glowing and healthy skin.
As a professional skin therapist, I know the pain of waking up with a full face of makeup. Applying it on your face overnight is like an open invitation to bacteria, clogged pores, acne and blackheads.
If you don’t remove your makeup, you’ll age because your makeup acts like a magnet that traps sebum, dirt, and dead skin cells. Leftover makeup creates a barrier between your skin and the products you apply, preventing skin care products from being absorbed.
Applying eye makeup overnight can cause eye infections and irritation. Even mascara that blocks the sweat glands on your lashes can cause unsightly stains. If you like full makeup, the double cleanse will make your cleanse much cleaner.
What we love most is that it is good for all skin types, even dry skin. If your skin reacts strongly to makeup, it is recommended to see a dermatologist, even if you wash your face properly.
One of the most common excuses for not cleaning at night is that you’re too tired. If you start your nighttime skincare routine at 7 or 8 p.m., you’re less likely to skip it.
Cleansing your skin overnight can help prevent the spread of bacteria and acne breakouts. Skin also repairs itself at night, so removing makeup and washing your face are essential to keeping your skin healthy.
The best time to use the toner is in the morning and before bed after cleansing. After cleansing, moisten a cotton pad with your desired toner (for organic products, use your fingers) and sweep along the contour of the face.
Toning can keep you fresh and make you feel rejuvenated while you’re asleep. Toning your face before bed can also promote better sleep.
This light and nourishing eye cream are rich in peptides that help prevent the signs of aging. Factors such as dryness, loss of collagen and elasticity can cause small wrinkles around the eyes.
Adding eye cream to your daily skincare routine can help make your wrinkles less noticeable. It also helps you treat dark circles and under eye bags.
If you’re looking for an anti-aging eye cream, consider ingredients like caffeine, hyaluronic acid, and peptides. Caffeine helps reduce bags under the eyes by constricting blood vessels and reducing inflammation.
Peptides stimulate collagen production, making the skin plump and youthful. For hydrated skin, choose a moisturizer that contains ceramides, dimethicone, glycerin, and oils.
Moisturizers are often considered a true must-have for winter skin.
But what about the night cream?
Does the beauty world make us think we are the saviors of winter skincare?
The first is a moisturizing cream that preserves both environmental moisture and the skin’s own moisture. The other is a moisturizer that contains ingredients like ceramide and hyaluronic acid.
The first category of night creams is rich in ingredients and contains powerful skincare agents such as Retin-A (also known as tretinoin) or retinol. We recommend replacing your regular eye cream with a more hydrating, heavier version.
The Last But Not The Least Step!
The average person spends a third of their life sleeping. Night masks are designed to be applied to the face before bed and worn overnight.
They often provide deep hydration and support the skin’s natural repair process. Some products can also be used as a DIY nighttime treat.
Unlike regular masks, sleeping with a mask will allow the product to absorb longer. If you have dry skin, we recommend using the Ultra Facial Moisturizing Night Mask with 10.5% squalane. Some can be used at night, others better (e.g. once or twice a week).
