Skincare And Chronobiology: Let's Talk Science
We apply all sorts of skincare products, spend hours in salons, and spend thousands of bucks to get different treatments to get flawless skin. However, often all these efforts fail to give us the desired results. Do you wonder why? Well, it is because we miss the science part. While researching different skincare formulas, experts also look out for biological reasons responsible for your dull skin. Along with hormonal changes and improper diet, not following your body clocks is the major one. Chronobiology research says that acting according to your body clock is not only important for your body but also your skin. Using products corresponding to the 24-hour cycle, helps your skin heal and glow.
In the day time, our skin fights against the external elements like wind, sun, cold, pollution, etc. and in the night, it repairs and heals itself. Therefore, you should consider the 24-hour cycle while picking up the skincare product to use as per the day and night.
Morning - Your beauty sleep has already repaired your skin overnight, covering it with a protective layer. You need not further burden it with layers of rich treatments or creams. Instead, you can just opt for a moisturizer. If you are stepping out, you can pair it with a sunscreen too. L'Oreal UV Perfect Matte & Fresh is the perfect UV protection expert for Indian Summers. Enriched with mattified kaolin clay it absorbs excess sweat and works best in maximum humidity. The best part about UV Perfect Matte & Fresh is, it is suitable for all skin types, including oily skin.
Afternoon - It is that time in the day, when your skin gets a little tired, and you need to light it up. All you have to do is stimulate blood circulation. You can just massage your skin, or depending upon the weather, re-apply a light moisturizer. For an instant hydration, you can try L'Oreal Paris Revitalift Crystal Micro-Essence. It is an ultra-lightweight micronized formula that penetrates 10 layers deep into your skin to give you a youthful, brighter and glowing skin. Its active ingredients like Salicylic Acid accelerates skin renewal & mildly exfoliates to refine pores & skin texture.
Evening - You can now let the skin breath and prepare your skin for the night. After the whole day, when your skin has probably absorbed lots of dirt and pollution, it's the time to clean it up. Apply a scrub or a face wash to gently remove impurities and dirt. Once your skin is clean, you can then apply a night cream to let it do magic overnight. The skin will repair and regenerate itself and give you a radiant, bright look in the morning.
