Night Skincare Routine
Being good to your skin is more or less of a loyalty quotient to your skin’s journey with YOU, after all, you wear it every single day of your life! That loyalty depends on how little but fulfilling care you give it in order to attain a happy and healthy skin. All your facial skin requires is commitment and some faith in your skincare routine.
Here’s a nugget of information to reason with you, match all the strings and clear inevitable doubts in your head concerning skincare routines:
Why a ‘Night’ skincare routine?
Just like a man has got to eat to survive, similarly, your skin’s got to breathe to bloom like a flower. Your skin is the largest organ you possess and is prone to be the first to show signs of distress which may be due to lack of sleep, unhealthy lifestyle, insufficient nutrition, etc.
To match strings, have you ever wondered what puts ‘beauty’ in ‘beauty sleep’ that your mother always stressed on before all your big days? It's because sleep time acts as a breather for your soft and delicate baby-like skin! Exactly why, a night skincare routine is mega important:
- During the night, cell regeneration is at its peak.
- There is maximum blood flow to the skin.
- There are no environmental stressors at night like pollution, sun damage, etc.
- Products can penetrate better on your bare skin while you’re asleep.
- Your skin attains maximum benefits during the repair process at night.
The thin line between daytime skincare and night-time skincare routine
Before anything else, it’s really important to fill in the blanks and cross out the confusion and doubts related to your skincare routines. A daytime routine concerns protecting your skin from the external damages; the harmful elements it is exposed to like the sun, pollution, dust, etc. which make a sunblock the most important part of your morning routine.
After getting through the day, a nighttime skincare routine plays the role of an ‘UN-DO button’ - undoing the damage your skin endures throughout the day. As your skin is on a repair mode during the night, a nighttime skincare routine provides the skin with appropriate nourishment by inducing the right ingredients to strengthen your skin’s repair game.
A step by step guide for your night skincare routine:
You must follow the correct order to apply your night skincare routine for glowing skin to prevent your effort from going to waste and gain effective results leading to impeccably beautiful skin! There is a foundational regimen put in place to guide you through and the below listed nighttime skincare routine steps will make sure you achieve the best results in no time!
STEP 1. Double Cleanse/ Remove your make-up
Sleeping with your make-up on is probably a mortal sin! Your first and foremost duty is to remove your makeup. Just herbs’ Sapta Jal Ayurvedic Micellar Water is a nutritive blend of vegetable oils and plant waters of Triphala which will nourish, hydrate, calm your pollution-stressed skin and effectively work as a make-up remover.
After removing your makeup, use a mild cleanser to get rid of leftover residue/make-up and dirt to fully prepare your skin to absorb your skin regimen. Re-cleanse your face with Just Herbs’ Aglow Neem-Chandan Skin Purifying Face Cleanser that will exfoliate, detoxify and cleanse your skin to prepare it for the next step.
STEP 2. Use a toner
Don’t mistake your hefty toner being a useless add-on to your regime. For what its worth, it helps you calibrate the skin and balances its moisture and pH levels. It majorly acts as a hydrating serum. Just Herbs’ Sacred Lotus - Green Tea Skin Recovery Toner carries out anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and skin-soothing properties to prepare your skin for other treatment products that will infuse just the right amount of nourishment that your skin requires to regenerate itself.
STEP 3. Eye Cream
Eye creams are not only meant to treat your dark circles. As we have thin skin around our eyes, a layer of eye cream protects the delicate eye area from other skincare products next in cue for your nighttime skincare. Just herbs’ I’brite Almond-Green Tea Nourishing Under Eye Cream is a firming and moisturizing under eye cream which will not only help you get rid of those pesky undereye circle but also plump up the delicate skin around your eyes.
STEP 4. Peels/ Serums/ Treatment
This step requires caution and attention more than any other step as too many layers increase the chances of irritation. It is best you pick your serums/ peels/ treatment according to the requirement of your skin. The choice of this step among the other nighttime skincare routine steps relies on the need of your skin every now and then.
STEP 5. Moisturiser/ Night cream
Night creams are generally heavier and thicker than a normal moisturizer. The idea of a heavy night cream is to extend the absorption hours. They are used at night to prevent water evaporation from your skin while you sleep, forming a thick protective layer over your skin’s surface. It is best to choose a formula with hydration abilities that does not clog your pores. Just Herbs’ Blemfree Anti Blemish Night Cream is a nutrient-rich cream rich in manjistha and chiraunji which will work wonders on your skin overnight.
If you have dry skin, consider adding a face oil to your Night skincare routine for dry skin before applying your last layer of night cream. Just Herbs’ Glow Boosting Night-Routine for Normal/Dry Skin is also your potential night skincare combo to boost your skin’s health if your skin is on the drier side.
On the other hand, beautiful skin begins with exceptional skincare. To leave no stone unturned, Just Herbs also provide night skincare routine for oily skin. Glow boosting Night-Routine for Oily/Combination Skin is an amazing combo well suited to make your skin radiant and healthy.
An OPTIONAL Step: Face Masks
Face masks increase hydration, refine skin pores, provide even skin tone, etc. and if you like to indulge, you should consider applying a face mask before your nighttime routine, a couple of times a week.
Your skin deserves all the help it can get while it repairs and rejuvenates itself at night so you can wake up looking healthy and happy every morning. A night skincare routine is like receiving a lot in exchange for an effort equal to a nickel. But there are minor details that you cannot neglect like, time. Every product should be used according to the order with appropriate time invested to allow the product to get absorbed in the skin. Smile, in the name of care and beautiful skin!
