The skin is the largest organ of your body, as it covers an average area of around 1.5 to 2 square metres! This impressive organ goes through a lot during the day, as it’s exposed to countless pollutants that can damage it in the short and long term.
While day time is about protecting your skin before you go out and about, night time is all about repairing, nourishing and rebuilding it, so developing an evening skincare routine now is important. Just a few simple skincare steps can give you glowing, healthier skin, and it won’t take long for you to start reaping the results!
Why Should You Have an Evening Routine?
First of all, it’s important to know why you should have a skincare routine in the evening. Sometimes, it can be easier to just forget about it and go to sleep without worrying about your skin, especially if you’ve had a long or stressful day.
However, your skin’s job is to protect you from outside elements, which means that taking care of it at the end of the day can be incredibly beneficial. Your skin will be healthier and, therefore, not only look even better but also do its job better.
Take a look at some of our evening routine tips for healthier skin below:
Clean Your Skin
Just think about it: during the day, your skin accumulates sweat, pollution, makeup, dirt, etc., which build up and clog your pores. Your skin also sheds itself constantly and, if you don’t clean it, you might find that instead of glowing, your skin is now dull. You’ll find that even the simple action of washing your face in the evening will help.
You can use a cleanser too, like our range of CLENZIderm products, which helps to reduce acne. Cleaning your skin of impurities will give it a healthy glow and prevent the appearance of blackheads, for instance.
Use a Toner
It might not seem like much, but using a toner can actually help your skin to repair itself. After cleansing, toning can smooth and soften it, especially because toners contain nutrients and other ingredients that can replenish your skin and reduce dry skin.
An example is the SkinCeuticals Equalizing Toner, which is suited for all skin types and is also antibacterial, antifungal and anti-inflammatory. This can help to soothe and tone your skin and make it feel healthier!
Targeted Solutions for Your Skin
For many, their evening skincare routine includes anti-aging products, such as our SkinCeuticals Blemish & Age Defense and our SkinCeuticals Ech A.G.E. Eye Complex. These products help to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, blemishes and other signs of ageing. Your skin will look more youthful and fresh!
The important of moisturising should never be underestimated. A skincare routine can end up making your skin crave moisture, so it’s essential that you end it by applying a moisturiser that will hydrate and smooth your skin. They are most effective when your skin is still slightly damp when you apply them, as they seal the moisture in.
A daily skincare routine is something that many people can identify with, but not everyone chooses to do the same when it comes to the evening. However, it can be even more important to develop a skincare routine for night time, as during the day pollutants build up on your skin.
