You cleanse, tone and moisturise religiously, using the best of products, but nothing seems to bring out the best in your skin. While some people are blessed with flawless skin that can shine on with minimal care, most of us have to work on it, especially after the age of 30. For this, you need a nighttime skincare regime more elaborate than the basic CTM and also make sure you apply the potions and lotions in the correct order for them to be able to do their job well. This guide will put you on the right path of layering your skincare:
The first step, of course, is cleansing. It gets all the dirt and makeup off your skin, allowing it to breathe easily. An oil-free, penetrating formula like the Neutrogena Deep Clean Facial Cleanser offers just the right kind of deep cleansing your skin needs at the end of the day.
Next comes toning. No matter how good your cleanser is, your skin still needs a dab of toner to get rid of the grime sitting deep in the pores. Besides, a good toner can also help in tightening the pores, restoring skin’s pH levels and smoothening the skin’s texture.
Now that your skin is squeaky clean, it is time to get started on giving it the right care and nourishment. If your skin is prone to acne, you must begin with spot treatment, applying an effective solution like the Biotique Bio Winter Green Spot Correcting Anti Acne Cream on active acne as well as acne blemishes and spots so that it can come in direct contact with the skin and work its magic.
As your skin begins to age, acne is no longer the single biggest problem staring you in the face. You also have hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, and fine lines to deal with. Given their highly concentrated formula and light texture, serums can seep deep into the skin and weed out skin troubles right from the root. You can either pick out serums for specific skin concerns such as wrinkles or hyperpigmentation or choose a power product like the L’Oreal Paris Revitalift Triple Power Serum for a well-rounded skincare routine. You must wait for at least five minutes before moving on to the next step to let the serum be absorbed by your skin properly.
The skin around and under your eyes has a thinner texture compared to the rest of your face, and therefore, it requires specific care and attention. Ideally, you must start before wrinkles, crow’s feet, puffiness, and dark circles rear their ugly heads. From under eye gels to under eye creams and specific treatments for wrinkles, dark circles and puffiness, there are a lot of eye care products for different skin types. Choose the one that best suits your needs and incorporate it at this stage of your skincare regime.
Keeping your skin duly hydrated through the night is essential for delaying the onset of ageing. This holds true for all types, including oily skin. Pick a nourishing night cream that suits your skin type and apply it consistently night after night for a hydrated, replenished skin.
Face Oils – The Perfect Night Cap
The concentrated essential oils for your face are the perfect nightcap to round off your skincare regime. The intricate molecular composition of these oils allows them to travel deep inside the pores and hydrate the skin from within. With continued use, facial oils can add a radiant glow and plump up your skin’s appearance.
