Skincare at Night

There’s more to a nighttime skincare regime than Wash, Dry, Moisturize. It may seem like a lot of steps, but washing and applying products in the right order can ensure your skin absorbs the products properly so you reap the maximum benefits. 

  1. Remove makeup: Whether you prefer mascara and a dab of lip balm, or you rock a full-face glam each day, removing your makeup is the first step to a clean face with a gentle makeup remover. Our fave is actually all-natural coconut oil—it gently dissolves even the toughest eye makeup.

  1. Cleanse: If you’re thinking, “Wait, didn't I just clean my skin?” You did. Sort of. Taking this second step to wash your face, you ensure all traces of makeup and remover (or oil) are washed away.

  • Tone: Using a toner at this point in your skincare routine has several benefits. It helps to balance your skin pH level and adds an extra layer of protection as you proceed to add serums and moisturizer.

    1. Apply Serum: If you’re not familiar with serums, here’s a brief definition. Serums are essentially lightweight moisturizers that can more easily deliver a specific ingredient (for instance Hyaluronic Acid or AHAs). And at night, our skin is the most receptive to repair and rebuilding. This is the best time to apply a serum to help promote skin-cellular renewal and hydration.

    1. Moisturize: After washing, toning and serums, a final application of moisturizer is a must. Think of it as the icing on a cake. It gives your skin an extra layer of love and care. Because a moisturizer is generally a thicker product, applying at the end of your routine ensures the rest of your routine has a chance to absorb into your skin.

    You can continue your skincare routine even while you sleep. According to this article from Good Housekeeping, switching to a silk pillowcase may help prevent fine lines and wrinkles. A fun sleep mask is optional. ;)
