Get Un-Ready - Night Time Skincare Routine
There’s nothing better than unwinding at the end of a long day with a relaxing night skincare routine. Your body regenerates itself once you go to sleep, making it the best time to let your skin soak in the goodness of nourishing skincare products. When your skin is clear of all dirt and impurities, it can breathe and clean pores also help the products get absorbed into your skin better.
Regardless of your skin type, you must follow a night skincare routine to make sure you maintain the health of your skin and wake up to a glowing and fresh complexion. Here is a simple five step skincare routine to get un-ready at night.
1. Take Off All Your Makeup
Going to bed with your makeup on is a recipe for disaster. Makeup clogs your pores and this can lead to acne and breakouts the next morning. Remove all traces of makeup with a mild makeup remover like the Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water. The Micellar Water works like a magnet to lift makeup, dust, and dirt from your skin. You do not need to rub and tug and your skin and there is no need to use water to rinse your face as well. Perfect for those lazy nights!
2. Wash Your Face
If you do not have micellar water to remove your makeup, use a makeup removing oil or balm and then wash your face with a gentle facewash. Removing all the dirt, oil, makeup, and sweat from your face is an important step in your night skincare routine. A clean face is like a fresh canvas for the rest of your skincare products.
3. Apply Toner
Toners are often overlooked by most people, but using a toner helps restore the pH balance of your skin and also preps your skin for the next steps. Remember to look for toners that do not contain alcohol or harsh chemicals as these will dry out your skin. Toners help calm your skin and also minimize the appearance of large and open pores.
4. Relax With A Sheet Mask
Even though you can use a sheet mask every night, we know that it might not be a feasible option. Instead, commit to using a sheet mask two to three times a week to give your skin a boost of hydration and nourishment in just 15 minutes. Sheet masks are drenched in concentrated serum and are rich in active ingredients that not only hydrate your skin but can also purify, brighten, tighten, etc. Look for a sheet mask that suits your skin type and needs and make it a part of your weekly night skincare routine. You can read the Ultimate Sheet Mask guide to find the sheet mask that will work best for your skin.
Whether you have oily or dry skin, the best night moisturiser for you will be one that works on repairing your skin overnight. Your night skincare is incomplete without a moisturiser as a moisturiser is the final step that helps lock in all the ingredients from the previous steps. Try the Garnier Bright Complete Night Cream to exfoliate dead cells and brighten the skin while you get your beauty sleep. Enriched with Lemon Essence, Vitamin C, and Yoghurt Bifidus, the Bright Complete Night Cream shows visible results from the first night so you wake up to lighter sports and nourished, fresh-looking skin in the morning.
Establishing a night skincare routine not only helps your skin rejuvenate at night but also makes it better prepared to tackle the environmental aggressors the next morning. While you sleep, your body is constantly working to repair cell damage and fixing your skin’s barrier. Protect your skin with the right kind of night skincare products and wake up to healthy and beautiful-looking skin.
