Get Unready With Vitamin C Products – Nighttime Skincare Routine
As tempted as you might be to jump straight into bed after a long and tiring day, skipping your nighttime skincare routine is an invitation for trouble. Leftover oil, makeup, sweat, and dirt will give you dull and tired-looking skin, clog your pores, and cause breakouts!
When you go to bed at night, your skin gets to work. Your cells regenerate overnight and repair daytime damage. Your organs also rebuild collagen that strengthens the skin and minimizes fine lines and wrinkles. Hey, it’s not called beauty sleep for anything! Now if you go to bed with all the impurities and toxins on your skin, your skin’s repair process is hindered. Instead, follow a simple nighttime skincare routine so your skin can absorb all the goodness from these products and aid the regeneration process. Now that you know why a nighttime skincare routine is extremely important, here is a simple four-step nighttime routine with Vitamin C products that will clean your skin and enhance your skin’s natural glow overnight so you wake up to healthy, spot-free, and radiant skin.
1. Makeup Remover
You just got home from a night out with friends and the last thing you want to do right now is scrub your face to get rid of all the long-wearing, waterproof makeup. We know it sounds like a lot of work, but trust us, this is a crucial step in your nighttime skincare routine that you should never skip. Throughout the day, makeup mixes with dirt, oil, sweat, and can clog your pores, preventing your skin from breathing. This takes a toll on your skin – dull skin, acne, blemishes, breakouts, and more. Taking off your makeup honestly isn’t a mammoth task if you have the right product. Use an oil-based makeup remover like the Garnier Micellar Oil-Infused Cleansing Water to quickly remove all your makeup in just one swipe. Simply soak a cotton pad with the Garnier Micellar Water, press it on your skin for a few seconds, especially on your eyes and lips, and then gently wipe across your face to remove all the makeup.
Once your makeup is off and if you feel like you need a double cleanse, wash your face with a mild facewash to leave your skin feeling squeaky clean. The Garnier Light Complete Facewash is a daily facewash that is enriched with Vitamin C to thoroughly cleanse, clarify, and brighten the skin. Apply the facewash on wet face, gently massage with fingertips for one minute, and rinse with water to uncover a clean and fresh complexion.
3. Vitamin C Face Mask
Everybody has days when they put on lots of makeup to look glam throughout the day only to discover that their skin has lost its glow when nighttime comes around. On days when your skin has worked extra hard, treat it to some much needed TLC with a Vitamin C sheet mask. Try the Garnier Fresh Mix Vitamin C Serum Sheet Mask to deliver intensive care to dull skin and illuminate and revitalize your skin in just 15 minutes. Use this vitamin C face mask two or three times a week to deeply nourish your skin and reveal an energized and youthful skin. Apply the vitamin C sheet mask on freshly cleansed face, wait for 15 minutes, remove the sheet mask, and massage the leftover serum into the skin.
4. Vitamin C Serum
Using a Vitamin C serum for your face is the quickest way of delivering an intense dose of vitamin C to the skin. Vitamin C serum benefits include reducing dark spots and blemishes, fading hyperpigmentation, and brightening your skin tone. Want a glowing and spot-free complexion? Try the new Garnier Vitamin C Booster Serum to get spot-free and bright skin that glows from within. Take 3-4 drops of the Vitamin C serum from the dropper into your palms, spread evenly, and gently dab the serum all over your face and neck.
5. Moisturizing Lotion and Night Cream
The last step of your nighttime skincare routine is hydrating your skin and locking in the goodness of all other Vitamin C products that you used so far. A rich and nourishing moisturizer traps moisture in your skin and rejuvenates your skin overnight. The Garnier Light Complete Yoghurt Night Cream not only moisturizes your skin but also gently exfoliates dead skin cells to improve your skin’s texture. The vitamin C in the night cream brightens your complexion while you get your much-needed beauty sleep. Just like your moisturized your face, use the Garnier Light Complete Moisturizing Serum-In-Lotion on the rest of your body to wake up to skin that is soft, hydrated, and supple.
No matter your skin type, a good nighttime routine will pamper your skin and help you unwind after a long day. Using Vitamin C products in your night routine will help restore your skin and get it ready for the next morning. Follow this nighttime skincare routine and let the Vitamin C work its magic to give you radiant and glowing skin.
