A Glow Getters Guide to Evening Skincare

When it comes to skincare, nothing says ‘me time’ like your nightly skincare routine. Taking the time to nourish and pamper the skin is the ultimate act of self care. With the colder months setting in and the temperature dropping, our skin can often start to appear dull and all round lacking that glow.

Sometimes it can be hard to know what products to use in order to get glowing skin and depending on your skin needs and wants the products can vary. Glowing skin is not only a mood booster but a good indication that skin is feeling happy and hydrated.

Using A Heavier Moisturizer

Using a richer moisturiser is one of the easiest and most efficient ways to increase your chances for that skincare glow. Making the switch during your evening routine means you’re giving the skin the best chance to absorb all the nutrients and hydration, leaving you with a healthy glow in the morning. We recommend the Dr Barbara Strum Face Cream Rich with its thicker texture and potent 'cell spa' DNA, it works to help promote a post-facial glow for an all round smoother complexion. Alternatively, why not try the DR LEVY Switzerland The Enriched Booster Cream? Formulated with a revolutionary complex of plant-derived stem cells and suitable for all skin types with its non greasy application.

Adding Oil to your Routine

Another way to get that ever-glowing, youthful look is by adding in a facial oil to your evening routine and benefitting from all that extra moisture. Oils can be a moisturising hero that can be applied to the face for that hydration kick. Not to mention that an oil is able to be added directly to your moisturizer. It's that little bit of skin luxury that everyones deserves. If you are wanting to try something new to your regime this winter, why not give the Lumity Skin Nutrients Facial Oil a go? Be immersed in its power radiant properties with a combination of 32 natural ingredients that are able to cater to all skin types.

Using Retinol At Night

The renowned skincare ingredient retinol is ideal for those looking to up their skincare game and achieve that youthful complexion. Retinol properties consisting of vitamin A means that it has the ability to alter the aging cells that reside on the skin and penetrate the your dermis rather than your outer layer of skin, or epidermis. We recommend trying out Obagi Retinol 1.0 as it helps treat acne with its 1% retinol active as well targeting signs of aging with its cream like texture, making it easier than ever to add retinol to your routine.

How do different Skin types Achieve Glowing Skin?

For sensitive skin, we suggest using an alcohol free toner, the soothing ingredients in the Obagi CRX System C-Balancing Toner make it our firm favourite. Using a richer balm like moisturizer that's free from fragrance is key as these could be an irritant to the skin. Moisturizing after cleansing in the evening is vital to keep skin happy. 

Those who lean more on the dryer side with their skin type will benefit from using both heavier moisturizers and an oil. Using these at nght gives the skin the best chance to lock in that glow and keep skin looking healthy and happy. 

Lastly, those who have an oily complexion can still achieve glowing skin overnight by using a toner that contains salicylic acid up to three times a week. Chemical exfoliants are a good way to go skin deep while feeding the oiler complexion and not stripping the skin down

Whatever your skin type is you can be sure to get that glow and indulge yourself during your evening skincare routine. Take some time for yourself on these cold winter evenings and get your glow on.
