The Importance of Night Time Skincare Routine

We get it, you have had a long and arduous day, and the last thing you want to do before getting cosy in bed is spend an hour on your nighttime skincare routine. But when done the right way, your night skincare routine can be a quick and effective way to treat your skin to some extra TLC. You already know that you should not go to bed with your makeup on, but do you know how and why your night skincare routine steps affects your skin? Whether you are going for a anti-ageing skincare, or want something more catered towards getting a bright and radiant complexion, read on to know how important a night skincare routine is!

• Why does a night skincare routine matter?

Your skin is exposed to environmental elements and pollutants like dirt, oil, pollution, sun, and wind throughout the day. These aggressors build up on your skin and clog your pores. And for those of you who wear makeup, you just added another item to the list of things that stay on your face all day! When you go to bed at night, your skin finally gets the chance to repair, rejuvenate, and undo all the daytime damage. Your skin actively produces new skin cells and improves your skin’s texture.

When your pores are clogged, your skin does not get the chance to breathe and carry out its overnight repair process. By adopting a night face routine, you are assisting your skin in its restoration process. Your nighttime skincare routine should focus on cleansing and hydrating your skin, getting rid of all impurities, and creating a fresh canvas for your skin cells to work on.

• Is there really any difference between a day and night skincare routine?

Yes! Your daytime skincare routine should focus on protecting your skin from the different environmental aggressors (like using a sunscreen) while your main aim at night should be to let your skin unwind, relax, and repair. Your skin is known to absorb nutrients better at night, so nighttime is perfect for using rich and nourishing skincare products that might otherwise feel too heavy or greasy for the daytime. Some active ingredients in skincare products are also known to react with the UV rays of the sun to increase your skin’s photosensitivity. In such cases, it is advised to use such products only at nighttime, thus adding another difference of products in your day and night skincare routines.

• What are the night skincare routine steps I should follow?

Whether your skin is oily, dry, or sensitive, here is an easy step-by-step night skincare routine that you can start using right away –

1. Cleanse – Removing your makeup (if you are wearing any) and thoroughly cleansing your face with a gentle yet effective cleanser should be the first night skin care routine step. Use mild textures like creams or foams or micellar water if you have sensitive skin. If you use waterproof makeup, use an oil-based cleanser first to remove all traces of makeup and then follow with a facewash. It is very important to have your skin clean as a part of your night skincare, so that your skin can breathe!

2. Tone – Toners help balance the pH levels of your skin and also reduce the appearance of large open pores, is also an essential people do tend to miss in their anti aging night routine. If you have extremely oily skin, this is an especially useful step. For all our readers with dry skin, look for moisturizing and hydrating toners that will not dry out your skin.

3. Eye cream – Another step most of us tend to skip in our anti aging night routine – applying an eye-cream! We assume that a face cream is enough for the eye area as well. The skin around your eye contours is extremely thin and fragile and is often the first to show signs of ageing. So use a targeted eye cream like the L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Moisturizing Eye Cream to not only reduce wrinkles and puffiness but also refresh and brighten the under-eye area for a youthful look.

4. Moisturize – The final step in your night skincare is using a nourishing face cream or moisturizer to lock in the goodness from the previous skincare products and hydrate your skin. Choose a skin cream that is enriched with anti-ageing elements like the Revitalift Moisturizing Night Cream by L’Oréal Paris that will hydrate your skin and boost cell regeneration overnight.

5. Sheet Masks – On nights when your skin is feeling tired and needs an extra pick me up, treat it to a hydrating sheet mask like the L'Oréal Paris Revitalift Hyaluronic Acid Fresh Mix Serum Sheet Mask. Sheet masks are a great way to relax after a long day and pamper your skin with some skin-loving active ingredients. Use a sheet mask two to three times a week to keep your skin hydrated, nourished, and feeling young.
