Flawless skin is not just a matter of good genes only; following the proper night skin care routine and beauty regimen do wonders for the skin.
Skin is exposed to various pathogens, pollutants, and dirt throughout the day. Consequently, it needs a good skincare routine and products to protect it. Most importantly, the order to apply the skincare products plays a vital role in protecting the skin. Also, following a specific order can heed many benefits and tremendous results.
How to Layer Skin Care Products?
The best way to ensure the order of applying products is according to a simple rule: from thin to thick. First apply the products having the thinnest consistency, followed by products having a thicker content.
However, products with antioxidants such as serums should be applied first to penetrate the skin easily and end with products that stay at the top, such as moisturizers.
Night Skin Care Routine for Glowing Skin
There is nothing more comforting than unwinding at night and pampering the skin. Since the skin repairs itself at night, it needs a proper skincare routine to support the process.
Follow the below-mentioned skin care routine steps to make your skin glow radiantly:
Use a Cleanser to Remove Impurities
Cleansing is the most crucial step in the night skin care routine, either during the day or night. The need for cleansing increases during the night since you have been wearing sunscreen and makeup. Also, the skin secretes oil which clogs the pores and exposure to various pollutants and bacteria makes the cleansing inevitable.
If you have been wearing makeup throughout the day, start using an oil-based cleanser such as a cleansing lotion to remove makeup. A cleansing lotion helps break down the oily component in the makeup. Afterward, use a water-based cleanser to remove grime and makeup that washes away with water.
For best results, get ELEMIS Pro-Collagen Naked Cleansing Balm 100g, which helps melt makeup and remove impurities effectively. The best thing about this cleansing balm is that it is suitable for all skin types, especially sensitive skin.
For application, take a small amount of ELEMIS Pro-Collagen Naked Cleansing Balm on your finger. Massage the balm on your face and neck in a circular motion. Afterward, remove with a damp cleansing cloth.
Exfoliate and Apply Best Skin Care Products
Exfoliating the skin helps in scraping away dead skin cells and unclogging the pores. Facial masks such as clay masks are very effective against treating acne and absorbing excess oil. Masks also help remove weariness and tiredness of your skin, especially if you have taken a long flight. Exfoliate your skin using an exfoliating cream and then apply the facial mask to get the best results.
The ELEMIS Gentle Rose Exfoliator 50ML actively exfoliates your skin by removing impurities, dead skin cells, and makeup residue. It also tightens the pores giving a smooth look to your face, and is suitable for both oily and acne-prone skin.
For application, take a small amount of ELEMIS Gentle Rose Exfoliator on your finger and massage it on your entire face for a while. Afterward, rinse it off with lukewarm water.
Tone your Skin
Toning aids in enhancing the skin’s outlook and nourishing it. It also helps in the active absorption of other skin care products in the regimen. Since toners are lightweight, they should be used after cleansing your face. Look out for toners with hyaluronic acid, rose water, ginseng, and alpha-hydroxy acids that boost hydration, reduce inflammation, and calm irritation.
The ELEMIS Rehydrating Ginseng Toner 200ML contains ginseng that helps to refresh your skin, maintain pH levels, and make the skin supple. The ELEMIS Rehydrating Ginseng Toner is suitable for all skin types and ideal for dehydrated skin.
For application, take a handful of toner in your palm and dab a cotton ball on it. Apply it to your face and neck.
Apply Active Serums
Serums help reduce various skin issues such as dark spots, wrinkles, and acne since they are filled with active ingredients. Look for serums with vitamin C to brighten skin tone. Retinol stimulates collagen production, and peptides prevent skin sagging.
The Medik8 C-Tetra Serum 30ml aids in brightening the skin’s complexion giving a youthful look to the skin. For application, take few drops of Medik8 C-Tetra Serum and massage it on your face, neck, and head. Afterward, apply the bight-based moisturizer.
Apply A Night-based Moisturizer or Night Cream
Moisturizers are a crucial part of any skincare routine since they help in hydrating and moisturizing the skin. Some people habitually use the same moisturizer for both day and night. However, the moisturizer designed specifically for a night has a thicker consistency and absorbs slowly overnight. It is important to choose skin care products wisely.
The moisturizers or night creams prevent water from evaporating while you sleep and aids in the active healing of the skin.
The ELEMIS Dynamic Resurfacing Night Cream 50ML actively nourishes the skin, making it an ideal cream for mature or wrinkle-prone skin.
For application, take a pea-sized amount of ELEMIS Dynamic Resurfacing Night Cream on your finger and massage it onto your face until it gets absorbed.
Apply Facial Oil over Moisturizer
People having dry skin suffer from a lack of moisture in their skin. Therefore, applying a facial oil over your moisturizer helps in preventing moisture from evaporating, especially in dry climates having low humidity.
The ELEMIS Pro-Collagen Definition Facial Oil 15ML pampers the skin and makes the skin glow fresh and radiant. For application, apply few drops of ELEMIS Facial Oil on your skin and massage in circles till it gets absorbed completely.
Apply Eye Cream
Since the eyes are the first part to show signs of aging, using an eye cream prevents wrinkles and helps in removing dark circles. If you have under-eye bags, then consider getting eye cream having peptides and hyaluronic acid. For dark circles, use an eye cream having vitamin C and niacinamide.
The CeraVe Eye Repair Cream 14ml helps remove fine lines and wrinkles from the area around the eyes, making it suitable for all skin types. For application, take a small amount of CeraVe Eye Repair Cream on your fingers and gently apply it to your eyes to nourish them.
