Tomorrow's glow is tonight's hard work (and maybe 2L of water), but primarily tonight’s skin care routine! Your skin does the majority of it’s repair and restoration while you sleep, so it’s important to not skimp on time when taking care of your complexion before bed. That’s why we bundled together our three favourite night time must haves to transform your skin from ‘oh no’ to ‘glow’!
So what should I really be doing for my night time skin care routine?
Firstly we recommend that you thoroughly take off your make, at all costs! If your skin still has the remains of your makeup lingering, it can not only hinder your skin care products from penetrating your skin, but also actually clog your pores and make your skin look worse. No thanks! We recommend firstly removing makeup with our Facial Wipes, a balm or oil based remover (especially for waterproof mascara), and following this with a cleanser. Depending on your skin type we recommend our Gel Cleanser, light-weight and best suited for normal to oily, or our Cleans All, a creamy texture catered to normal to dry skin.
If you’ve worn heavier makeup than usual you might also incorporate the ‘double cleanse’ method, where you cleanse your face twice, with two different cleansers. Additionally you may benefit from an exfoliator after your first cleanser, to help scrub away the dead skin that sits on the top layer of your complexion. Exfoliating once or twice a week will also help your makeup apply more flawlessly, as foundation and other products won’t cling to dead skin cells (creating those awfuls bumps, textures and flaking that nobody wants!).
Once you’ve removed your makeup, cleansed and exfoliated, it’s time to get down to business. Apply your products from lightest to heaviest, as the different weight in formula will allow products to be stacked while still penetrating your skin. Light weight formulas like gels & serums will absorb into your skin quicker, followed by heaviers creams and leave on masks that will still be able to soak into skin following your serums.
A leave on mask might seem like a foreign concept (or perhaps just a bit extra), however this additional step is what can take your routine from good to great. Your skin has a full 8 hours to absorb the active nutrients in the mask, helping to promote cell turnover and most importantly replenish lost moisturise, plumpness and lustre to the skin. Our Night Trio Replenishing Multi Mask Set does exactly that, replenish. With three masks dedicated to the unique areas of your face, you can customise your night routine to suit your changing skin concerns, time constraints, as well as mix and match your favourite products.
If you’re waking up with skin that looks as tired as it did before bed, following our glow inducing night routine might just be the saviour you’ve been looking for. And the best part? It’s 50% off RRP, meaning you can get 100% of the glow for only 50% of the price.
