After a busy day, tending to a skin care routine may seem like the last thing you want to do. However, properly caring for skin at night is an important part of keeping it clear, healthy, and glowing. A quick skin care routine each night is important to cleanse the makeup, oil, and dirt from the day. Here are 5 simple nighttime skin care tips and time-savers to guarantee you're getting the most out of your skincare — and to ensure you wake up every morning with glowing, gorgeous skin.

Cleanse nightly

Wearing make-up and the habit of touching our faces all day long makes our faces one of the dirtiest parts of the body. It’s important to clean the skin at night to avoid the spread of acne bacteria that can cause blemishes. In addition, skin repairs itself at night, so removing make-up allows for a clean palette to apply nighttime products for maximum effect. Sure, it requires some serious discipline to perform any nighttime skin care routine — especially when exhausted — but it's always worth it.

Wash skin earlier in the evening

We know after a long day washing your face can be the last thing on your mind, therefore why not start your nighttime skin routine at 7 or 8 p.m. Then you can get cosy without having to worry about it.

Always use moisturiser at night

Some people avoid using night cream to let their skin “breathe.” This couldn’t be further from the truth. Avoiding night cream offers no positive skin benefit. In fact, when skin is bare, any existing moisture evaporates right out of it, resulting in dry skin and a dull, tired complexion. It’s really important to use a moisturiser suited for your skin type; at night, when your skin is at rest, the skin’s permeability is at its highest, allowing the active ingredients to absorb deeper within the skin. Our Moisturiser 3x acts a night cream for extra moisture and will leave skin glowing. 

Get enough beauty sleep

There is no doubt that getting enough sleep every night can offer many skin benefits. A lack of quality sleep compromises the body’s circulatory system and causes stagnant blood in the vessels under the eyes because it hasn’t properly drained (which means bags!) Lack of sleep also causes the skin to look pale and tired because the circulation has been impaired. In addition, it’s important to get a good night’s sleep because sleep deprivation also causes stress, which can aggravate all skin conditions, including acne, eczema, and psoriasis. Bottom line: When you’re tired, you look it!

Change pillowcases frequently

And finally, remember to change your pillow case regularly! Bacteria and oil may get reintroduced into the skin during sleep, so it’s always suggested for acne-prone skin to have a fresh, clean pillowcase to sleep on.
