Clear Skin Routine At Night – Benefits and How To
A consistent skincare routine is essential for keeping your skin clear and healthy. While most of us understand how important it is to have a morning skincare routine, it's easy to overlook the importance of a night-time skincare routine. You already know that you should avoid going to bed with makeup on. But did you know that following a clear skin routine at night can help you maintain your skin’s health? We understand that maintaining a night skincare routine for clear skin after a busy day can be a challenge. However, it has multiple benefits and we’re here to jot them down for you so that you can push yourself to start following it right away! Here are a few reasons why it is important to have a clear skin routine during night-time.
1. Removes dirt and impurities
Throughout the day, your skin accumulates dirt, oil, and pollutants, which can clog your pores and trigger acne breakouts. If you use makeup, you allow an extra layer to react with this dirt and cause acne. A good night skincare routine for clear skin removes these pollutants while also allowing your skin to breathe. After removing all traces of makeup and grime with a gentle cleanser, use a toner to remove any leftover impurities.
2. Helps prevent premature ageing
When you sleep, your skin is in repair mode, and it's the ideal time to hydrate and nourish it. Applying a decent moisturiser before bedtime keeps your skin hydrated and helps to avoid wrinkles and fine lines. To combat free radicals and boost collagen formation, look for moisturisers that contain antioxidants and anti-wrinkle ingredients such as retinol or vitamin C.
3. Reduces inflammation and redness
If you have sensitive or acne-prone skin, a night-time clear skin routine is vital for minimising inflammation and redness. Use skincare products such as sheet masks to give your skin the soothing effect.
4. Maximizes the effects of skin products
When your skin is in repair mode, it is more likely to absorb skincare products at night. This implies that any skincare products applied before going to bed will be more effective at nourishing and repairing your skin. Applying a serum or treatment that addresses specific skin issues such as acne, hyperpigmentation, or dark circles can assist to maximise the efficacy of your skincare routine.
A step-by-step night skincare routine for clear skin
1. Remove your makeup
The first step in attaining clear skin is to remove your makeup before bed without leaving any trace of it on your face. Use some micellar water that will not dry your skin out to clean your makeup. If you have used waterproof makeup, we recommend using a micellar water that is oil infused. You can use the Micellar Oil Infused Cleansing Water that removes stubborn, waterproof makeup along with removing dirt and grime from your skin.
2. Cleanse your skin
Adding a facewash in your night-time skincare routine for clear skin is of utmost importance. Apply a gentle cleanser on your skin, gently massage it and rinse it with water. Ensure that all the makeup, dirt and sweat has been washed off your face. The Bright Complete Vitamin C Gel facewash is infused with Vitamin C and lemon that brightens your skin.
3. Use a toner
Use a mild toner that helps in balancing the PH level of your skin. It also helps in promoting healthy cell turnover. We recommend using a toner twice a day and adding it to your night skincare routine for clear skin.
4. Apply a serum on your skin
Add a serum in your night clear skin routine to get rid of dull skin, hyperpigmentation and dark spots. Use a serum that is suitable for all skin types. We suggest using the vitamin C Serum that is rich in antioxidants. It brightens your skin and reduces dark circles and acne from the first application itself.
5. Moisturise your skin
Moisturising your skin is the key in every skincare routine. Adding a moisturiser in your clear skin routine at night helps in hydrating your skin. You can use the Bright Complete Vitamin C Yoghurt Night Cream that is enriched with vitamin C, Lemon essence, and Yoghurt Bifidus. It exfoliates dead skin cells and nourishes your skin while you take your beauty sleep.
6. Use a sheet mask occasionally
You can add a sheet mask to your clear skin routine as a treatment once or twice a week. It brightens your dull skin, hydrates it and adds instant glow to it. The Bright Complete Serum Sheet Mask fades your dark spots and gives you radiant in just 15 mins. A single sheet mask contains one bottle worth of serum.
