After an exhausting day, tending to a skin care routine may be the last thing you want to do when you reach home at night. However, taking care of skin is as important as having a balanced diet. Proper caring for your skin is vital in keeping it healthy and glowing, that’s why it is important to allot a few minutes for your skin care regimen before going to bed.
Most women apply lots of makeup on a daily basis, and a layer of cosmetic products can be really harsh for the skin. This can clog up pores and cause a host of skin problems such as pimples, acne, and blackheads. Aside from harsh chemicals in the makeup, your skin also suffers from other things such as damaging sun exposure and pollution. This is the reason why a quick skin care routine each night is necessary to cleanse the oil, makeup, and dirt from the day.
Exposing your skin to these daily environmental aggressors is inevitable, but a good skin care routine is an effective solution to avoid too much damage. If you are one of those people who are having a hard time looking for perfect skin remedies, we can help you find easy solutions to make your beauty regimen easy, fun, and hassle-free.
Check out the list below for some easy-to-do tricks in keeping your skin smooth and healthy.
Cleansing will remove dirt, oil and other impurities from your skin that can cause breakouts and other skin problems.
Before using any cleanser try to choose a cleanser according to your skin type. There are many types of cleanser available in the market like “Oriflame Optimals Foaming Cleanser,“ “Deborah Demolab Skin Cleanser,“ and “Colorbar Cleanser” that effectively remove dirt, oil, and other pollutants from your skin leaving it healthy and vibrant.
How To Apply a Cleanser: Put a small amount of cleanser on your hands. Apply it on your face and neck in a circular motion for a couple of minutes then rinse it with lukewarm water. Pat dry with a clean towel. Don’t scrub too vigorously or too long as overdoing this may cause inflammation, redness, and swelling.
After cleansing your skin, it’s actually very important to apply a toner because it balances the pH of your skin and prepares it for moisturizing.
Always look for a toner without alcohol because that ingredient can severely dry your skin. But before using any toner, try to look for a product according to your skin type as many companies offer toners that are specially made for sensitive or acne-prone skin.
How to Apply a Toner: Dab toner onto a cotton ball and apply to your face and neck. After applying toner, leave your skin for two minutes (just let your skin breathe and air-dry) and do not dry your skin with a towel.
After cleansing and toning, moisturization is very important because it helps your skin to stay soft and smooth. It also keeps your skin hydrated and protected from accumulating excessive dead skin cells. Choose a product based on your skin type, so you don’t have to worry about side effects later on.
How To Apply a Night Cream: Apply moisturizer on your face and neck. Pay special attention to the areas around your eyes and lips which can get excessively dry.
Putting on makeup and other beauty products can be a lot of fun but removing them at the end of the day can be so tiring. It can even become less amusing when removing heavy eyeliner and stubborn waterproof mascara. This nightly routine may sound tedious and though you might really take extra time to cleanse and moisturize your face before going to bed, admit it, there are also a lot of times when you feel really exhausted that all you want to do is crawl into bed rather than spending time removing that heavy makeup on your face.
If there’s one thing you should make time for at night, it is doing your skincare routine. Residual makeup, as well as other pollutants, can clog your pores and mix with dirt, sweat, and oils that build up on your skin overnight. Aside from the fact that not doing your nightly beauty regimen can make you look dull the following morning, science has also proven that not cleansing your face before bedtime can also age your skin.
Taking care of your skin does not have to be a long process. With the simple steps that we have provided above, you can be sure that your skin will stay vibrant and flawless.
