Original; “Beauty is Pain”
Dala: “Beauty is Stress”
Ever seen a celebrity or maybe just that lady across the street who just always looks effortlessly beautiful at all times? It feels like some people just have this natural glow that we can’t quite figure out.
Let me let you in on the secret.
It’s all about night time skin care.
One thing common amongst most skin care experts is the fact that they know the importance of nighttime skin care.
What makes nighttime skincare more important than every other kind?
During the day, your skin is in a high level of stress and it’s exposed to makeup, excessive oil production, dirt, bacteria (from touching your skin all day with or without realizing it), UV exposure, pollutants, and other environmental elements. In fact, the majority of skin ageing occurs during the daytime.
At night, your skin is in its reparative state. While you sleep, your skin is at rest and is not being exposed to the environmental stressors that greatly contribute to visibly ageing the skin. This is the perfect time for you get your money’s worth on your products.
I’ll share with you the most important skin care steps you should never miss at night to get that glow.
1. Remove all makeup
Apply a mild face wipe or baby wipes to remove all makeup. You can then use facial cleanser for extra residue. That means leftover mascara, lip color—everything. This ensures that your pores will be clean and your eyes free of leftover gunk.
Never underestimate the importance of taking a coll shower after a stressful day. It cools your skin and even your mind down.
3. Anti Ageing Serum
Since your skin did some ageing during the day. It’ll be wise to apply your anti-ageing serum before you go to bed. Give it a whole night to sit in and counter the effects of the day’s stress.
Your anti-ageing beauty regimen can start at any time. Even if you are still youthful-looking, it’s never too early to start preventing skin damage and premature signs of ageing.
4. Go for the dark spots
You can target discoloration, and restore an even skintone at night. A dark spot correcting cream will illuminate small dark spots as you sleep, brightening skin for a more even look. For additional protection from hyperpigmentation, use an SPF during the day on dark spots to reduce photodamage by ultraviolet (UV) rays.
5. Moisturize properly
Apply a nighttime moisturizer suited for your skin type to help hydrate your skin cells. Apply to the face and neck.
6. Add some eye cream
Apply a nourishing eye cream to provide essential hydration to the delicate skin around the eye.
7. Pack your hair up
Your hair contains oils and dirt that can get on your face and pillowcase and cause breakouts. Braid your hair or pin it up into a bun to keep it off your face as you sleep.
8. Beauty sleep is most important
Catching a good night’s sleep can really affect the way you look. Sleep can reduce dark circles because a lack of sleep compromises your body’s circulatory system and you get stagnant blood in the vessels under the eyes because it hasn’t properly drained.
