Your Nighttime Skincare Routine: Why and How!

by Tatiana SAMOY December 22, 2022 2 min read

Nighttime skincare routines are often overlooked in favor of morning skincare routines. However, this is the time when your skin needs the most care! We want to share with you why it's essential and the critical steps in a balanced routine.

We all have different needs. So while there is no one-size-fits-all method, there are essential steps that significantly helps your skin. These include removing makeup with a makeup remover, using a gentle cleanser, adding toner, then using a targeted serum treatment, applying eye cream and moisturizing. Read on for more details!


1. Start with Makeup Remover

The best way to start your nighttime routine is with a gentle makeup remover. We recommend beginning by using micellar water, which will help remove even waterproof mascara. If you don't want the hassle of going in for cleansing, oil-based products such as eyeliner and liquid lipstick can be removed quickly enough. Just make sure they're cleanable before applying them again!


2. Use a Gentle Cleanser

After makeup remover, you should use a gentle cleanser to cleanse face and neck.

Most cleansers have hydrating action, ideal for those with normal-to-dry skin types! Cleansers are recommended if you live in a polluted environment, because the cleansing action helps counteract these toxins we're exposed to daily.


3. Apply toner

A toner can help balance pH levels, moisture levels, especially if you have normal-to-oily skins types that need an extra emollient touch to stay hydrated all day long! We recommend an alcohol-free toner that's gentle enough and packed with antioxidant properties like green tea or witch hazel, which help soothe your face by soothing redness caused by acne, as well antioxidants protect the lipid barrier.


4. Treatment

The fourth step is specific to your skin type and needs, which is about your favourite targeted serum. For most skin types, a hyaluronic acid serum will act as a moisture binder that binds water in cells, making them plump and soft. Hyaluronic Acid-rich serums absorb quickly, so they're perfect for drier or more sensitive complexions!

Feel free to periodically switch serum, if you need to address two or more specific needs for your skin.


5. Eye-contour

Eye creams can be beneficial when used as a preventative for fine lines and wrinkles. They provide targeted treatment to the thin skin around your eyes, which helps hydration in addition to firmness. 

Peptides can ensure appropriate amounts of moisture enter into cells, so you get all-day water; plus, they contain antioxidants such as vitamin C or Rosehip extracts (both beneficial ingredients).


6. Moisturize

Many people think that they can skip step six, but it's essential for moisturizing your skin. A night cream with hyaluronic acid will help you keep up hydration levels while keeping pores free from clogged-up! You can use gentle - non-comedogenic - cream, one that is formulated solely around providing intense nutrients and moisture.
