Your Nighttime Skin Care Routine in 5 Simple Steps

Your Nighttime Skin Care Routine in 5 Simple Steps

If there aren’t enough hours in the day to give your skin the attention it needs, don’t despair. Aside from getting enough beauty sleep, having a thorough nighttime skin care routine is the perfect opportunity to give your skin some extra TLC.

During the day, your skin is exposed to harmful environmental elements such as UV rays, pollution and dirt, all of which damage the skin and lead to premature aging. As you sleep, your skin gets to work repairing itself from this damage, and the right skincare routine can support this process. By investing in your nighttime skin care routine, you’ll be well on your way to achieving the youthful looking glow that you want. 

So, if you’re ready to make your beauty sleep work harder, follow these 5 easy steps every night and you’ll see younger-looking, more radiant skin in no time.

 1. Remove makeup and dirt

Sleeping in your makeup definitely doesn’t support the skin’s overnight repair process. So, before you do anything else, clear your skin of any makeup, dirt and oil that has accumulated over the course of the day. 

A great choice for all skin types is our super gentle No7 Radiant Results Revitalizing Micellar Cleansing Water, which helps remove even the most stubborn makeup and dirt. We recommend using a cotton pad with gentle, circular movements for the best results. 

2. Deep cleanse

To remove any leftover impurities from your pores, use our No7 Radiant Results Purifying Foaming Cleanser to deep clean your skin and leave it feeling beautifully soft and fresh. This cleanser is particularly good for those with oilier skin types. For optimal results, massage the cleanser into wet skin and rinse away with warm water. 

3. Apply a serum

Now that your skin is properly cleansed, it’s time to start treating your specific skin care concerns with a highly-concentrated serum. To reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, our No7 Line Correcting Booster Serum is a tried‐and‐tested favorite. 

For skin that looks firmer and more even in tone, you can’t beat No7 Lift and Luminate Face Serum, which reduces the appearance of wrinkles and helps complexion to look more even. There’s also our No7 Restore and Renew Face Serum which helps to treat both the face and neck to reduce the appearance of deep wrinkles. Evenly apply the serum directly onto your skin, particularly on troublesome areas, and wait for it to fully absorb. 

4. Use an eye cream

Many of us skip this step in our nighttime skin care routine but it’s important not to neglect the delicate eye area. Because the skin around the eyes is so thin, it’s one of the first places to display early signs of aging, such as fine lines, puffiness, and wrinkles. Thankfully, with the help of a specially-formulated eye cream, such as No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Eye Cream, you can help keep the appearance of wrinkles at bay. Gently dab it around the eye area before you go to bed and look forward to brighter-looking eyes when you wake up. 

5. Apply a night cream

Lastly and most importantly, finish your nighttime skin care routine by moisturizing with a skin‐quenching night cream. Skin becomes dehydrated overnight and using a night cream ensures that it stays hydrated while you rest. It also helps with surface skin renewal and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Simply smooth No7 Restore & Renew Multi Action Night Cream onto face and neck using your fingertips and allow it to absorb before turning out the light and getting your much‐needed beauty sleep.
