Skin care is a tricky matter to discuss since every person’s routine and products vary depending on the type of skin they have. Nevertheless, we here at Beautypreneur have come up with 3 things you must absolutely do before hitting the hay.
- Go to bed makeup-free
Never, I repeat, NEVER go to bed with makeup on! No matter how tired you are from work, do your skin a favor and rid it from all the products from that day. The period wherein you are asleep may be the only time your skin gets to breathe, so don’t deprive it of that. Use a cleanser aligned with your skin type and needs, and a little cotton ball and makeup remover won’t hurt either.
And I don’t just mean moisturize your face – the rest of your body needs moisture, too! But in the event that you find the application of lotion or cream on your body too taxing, then just show some love to the areas that tend to get very dry like your knees, elbows, and neck.
- Use eye cream
Not many are lucky enough to get 8 hours of sleep every night, so it’s no surprise if you find yourself looking like a zombie the next morning. Eye creams can not only help you lighten the dark circles under your eyes, but also delay the signs of aging and appearances of wrinkles.
This last tip may not be directly related to your skin care regimen but trust me, it may have an effect on how your skin will turn up; always replace your sheets on a regular basis. Having a clean and moisturized face will mean nothing if the pillow you rest your head on is dirty. Silk and linen are the best kinds of cloth for pillows, while cotton is not so advisable. Also, apply your skin care routine at least 30 minutes before making contact with your pillow so that your skin can fully absorb the products instead of it smearing onto your pillow.
There you have it, girls! May these small but enormously helpful tips bring you one step closer to glowing and radiant skin.
