Cleanse Your Skin
Every great skin care routine starts with a good cleanse. We like LovelySkin LUXE Clarifying Gel Cleanser, which gently exfoliates with glycolic and salicylic acids as it purifies skin.
Your skin is your body’s largest and fastest-growing organ. You’ve probably heard this before. Your skin is what protects you from everything in the environment—your first line of defense. And, like every other organ, you need to take care of it. Proper skin care can rejuvenate the complexion and delay signs of aging for a healthier, more youthful appearance.
Apply Topical Antioxidants
Antioxidants neutralize free radicals and help protect your skin. They aren’t just for your morning routine—antioxidants can also help undo daily damage while you sleep. Try SkinCeuticals Antioxidant AM/PM Limited Edition Duo for around-the-clock antioxidant protection.
You put your skin through a lot. Every day your skin is exposed to dirt, bacteria, oil production and makeup. These factors show almost immediately on your skin. But the effects of UV rays, pollution, wind and other environmental elements take longer to appear. All of these things can cause free radical damage to your skin cells, aging your complexion over time.
Use a Night Cream
Your skin does most of its repairing at night. Give this repair process a helping hand with a nighttime treatment. We like Obagi Gentle Rejuvenation Advanced Night Repair because it works with your skin’s natural repair process to improve wrinkles, dark spots and uneven texture.
While you sleep, your skin takes this time to naturally repair the damage that’s done throughout the day. Through this process, your skin works to produce new collagen, increase circulation, reduce under-eye puffiness and refresh your overall appearance. Sleep also helps reduce cortisol, the stress hormone that contributes to things like thinning skin, stretch marks and uneven tone. A good night’s sleep can help minimize skin inflammation and boost collagen production.
Choose a Moisturizing Sunscreen
Make your morning routine a little easier by applying a moisturizing sunscreen. We love EltaMD UV Elements Broad-Spectrum SPF 44 because it hydrates and protects skin, all with a flattering universal tint.
When you take the time to pamper your skin at night, that extra effort will pay off in the morning. The best nighttime skin care products rejuvenate and refresh skin, so you can wake up with a more radiant complexion. It might even save you some time during your morning rush!
