While we all know that a morning cleansing and moisturizing ritual helps to protect the skin throughout the day, having a night skincare routine that renews and revives is just as important. Read on to discover our simple 6-step regimen and explore the best night creams and serums for you.
Why a night skincare routine matters
Throughout the day, the skin is exposed to harmful environmental stressors (UV rays, pollution, heating, air conditioning, wind, and impurities) that can damage the skin and emphasize signs of premature aging.
While sleeping, however, the skin works to repair damage. The right night skincare routine can support this natural renewal process (particularly as skin becomes more receptive to the nutrients in skincare). Following a simple 6-step routine every night will help you to achieve healthier and younger-looking skin.
Night skincare routine
Step 1: Remove makeup
Sleeping in makeup may not only clog pores and trap dirt beneath the skin but it also hinders the skin’s overnight repair process. As such, every night skincare routine should start with the careful removal of makeup, preferably with a gentle cleanser or micellar water.
