We all know the effects of getting a full eight hours of sleep: our bodies are fit; the brains are happy and focused. As it turns out, we can also wake up with a healthy glow after a night’s rest.
Here’s how it works: cells go into repair mode to fix the damage incurred during the day (from UV radiation and pollutants, for example). During this period, blood vessels dilate to allow an increased flow of oxygen and nutrients to the skin. This stimulates the removal of toxic cellular products.
Our cells do the repair work whether or not we take care of our skin. But the time before you go to bed is a great chance for you to give your skin the nutrients it needs to optimize healing. It doesn’t have to be complicated; once you have the essentials down, it’s easy to stick to your nighttime skin routine.
Follow these tips to get the best out of your nightly skin care regimen:
- Remove all traces of makeup.
Start with a clean canvas before layering products. Before going to bed, be sure to remove makeup with Celeteque Advanced Anti-Aging Cleansing Oil. For ladies on-the-go, use Celeteque Make-up Remover Cleansing Facial Wipes, and follow up with your usual cleansing and toning as soon as possible to ensure all traces are removed.
- Go from lightest to heaviest.
A simple rule to keep in mind is to start from the lightest-feeling products to the heaviest. So if you are following a multi-step regimen, make sure your toner comes first, followed by a serum or treatment, then finish off with a rich night cream.
- Invest in a good night cream.
Using a regular moisturizer at night may not be enough. The right night cream goes beyond restoring lost moisture; you’ll need one that contains potent ingredients that rejuvenate the skin and fight skin aging and wrinkling. As part of your regular routine, apply Céleteque® DermoScience™ Advanced Anti-aging Rejuvenating Night Cream The Rejuvenating Night Cream is proven to significantly reduce fine lines and smoothen skin within 4 weeks with regular use, so each night you see less lines.
