Start with the Right Steps

Your first step in a nightly skin care routine should be using a cleanser. Think of a good cleanser as the base, the starting point for your skin care routine. At the end of a long day, you’ve likely spent time outside in the elements. Pollutants have raged all around you. Makeup has been on your face all day.

  • Soothe the skin, helping it to appear fresh and young
  • Stimulate collagen production
  • Nourish and revitalize skin
  • Treat pigmentations, wrinkles, fine lines, and age spots

Look at the Ingredients

But what kind of night cream should you use? With the wide array of options available, picking the right night cream is a daunting task. Look for creams with active ingredients, like amino acids, antioxidants, and most importantly, retinoids.

A retinoid is an active, effective skin care product that reduces clogged pores, evens out skin tone, and promotes anti-aging. It even minimizes fine lines and wrinkles. But if a retinoid is exposed to sunlight, it becomes inactive, which means, after cleansing your face at night, applying a retinoid is essential for it to be effective. It actively works during the night to help promote the anti-aging process.

There are many other products available that contribute to the healing are revitalization of your skin as you sleep. Eye creams provide essential relief and healing to the more sensitive skin are the eye area. Exfoliants remove dead skin, keeping your skin looking youthful and allowing a night cream to penetrate more deeply into the skin.

But one of the most important parts of your nightly skin care routine? After you’ve cleansed and applied a night cream? Sleep! Your skin rejuvenates and heals as you sleep, which means the active ingredients in your night creams become even more effective while you sleep. The more you sleep, the more you’ll see the anti-aging results of your skin care routine. What do you use in your night time skin care routine?
