After a long and tiring day, the last thing we all (at least me) can think of is doing a nighttime skincare routine. However, proper care for your skin is done at night and it is important to keep it healthy, glowing and clear. PM is the best time to give your skin that much-needed TLC. All you have to do is spend 15 minutes of your day just nourishing and hydrating your skin with some overnight treatments. Pick and choose skin care treatments according to your skin type and concerns. And trust us, you’ll wake up to bright and healthy skin. When you sleep, our skin goes through a self-repair phase—away from pollution and our skin rejuvenates itself while regenerating new skin cells.
While you are resting, there’s an increase in our blood flow that helps the skincare products to work better. All you have to do is do a quick skincare regime at night by cleansing the makeup, pollution, and dirt from the day and repairing your skin with some treatments. Ahead, you’ll find some of the interesting yet important tips your skin needs overnight so that you wake up with glowing skin.
Nighttime Skincare Tips For Best Beauty Sleep
1) Don't forget to double cleanse
One should start with a basic skincare tip– making sure you double cleanse before you head to the bed. Double cleanse helps to cleanse your skin properly and unclog your pores. Use an oil-based cleanser and follow it up with a gentle foam-based one. Through this, you’ll be able to keep up with a good skincare regime. Quench’s Mon Cherry Dirt Dissolving Cleansing Balm removes all traces of makeup and impurities with its refreshing cherry blossom and grapefruit extracts that help you to purify and replenish your skin. Follow it up with a 2-in-1 lightweight, oil-based cleanser — Mon Cherry Brightening Foam Cleanser that gently exfoliates, unclogs pores and helps you to achieve a brighter complexion. Our skin regenerates at night and double cleanse helps to deep cleanse while removing unwanted impurities.
Gentle enough for all skin types, Mama Cica Deep Pore Cleansing Micellar Water can be added to your skincare regime to remove all the impurities, dirt and excess oil. It purifies and removes makeup in one sweep! Non-sticky and fragrance-free, this micellar water unclogs pores, restores moisture balance in your skin. It’s formulated with tea tree leaf, calendula extracts and bergamot fruit oil that helps to relieve and soothe your irritated skin. Wake up to fresh, supple and glowing skin!
2) Add actives in your skincare regime
During the night, treating skin to natural rejuvenation makes it more durable than during the night. A nighttime skincare regime concentrates on hydration and repair that keeps your skin clear and firm. Including antioxidant serums and ampoules helps in treating your skin concerns. Our skin is more permeable during night and is more receptive to active skincare products, so consider investing in actives and applying heavy based moisturizer to seal it all in.
We suggest you to invest in retinol or bakuchiol if you have acne-prone skin or you’re over the age of 30. Retinol helps to brighten your dull skin by exfoliating that results in glowing and healthy looking skin. Also, it helps to prevent wrinkles while smooths out the existing wrinkles and fine lines. Bravocado Intense Brightening Serum packed with bakuchiol helps to smoothen your fine lines, even skin tone and protects it from free radical damage. It has a unique bouncy texture that sinks into skin like a dream!
3) Moisturize and moisturize more
Oftentimes we skip our moisturizers but we don’t recommend you to do that. When your skin is bare, any existing moisture evaporates and results in dryness making your skin look tired and dull in complexion. Pro tip— make it a point to moisturize your skin before you head to the bed as when your skin is at rest, our skin’s permeability is highest and thus it allows the ingredients to get absorbed deeply. When it comes to healing your skin barrier health, a nourishing moisturizer is highly recommended. Pick a moisturizer that comes formulated with a combination of emollients, humectants and ceramides for visible results. Invest in Quench’s gentle moisturizer like Chialeader Oil Control Moisturizer has a non-greasy gel formula infused with the goodness of skin-loving ingredients such as chia seed, and cactus extracts and bamboo water that controls excess oil and improves skin texture. Isn’t this what you have been looking for?
4) Invest in a facial essence
Essences are highly-concentrated treatments with a water com serum like consistency — happen to be the heart of every K-beauty regime. They contain impressive doses of active ingredients such as glycerin, hyaluronic acid that intensely nourishes the skin post cleansing and preps your skin for serum that comes after. It’s ideal for those who want to really drive moisture into their skin. Mon Cherry Intense Brightening Essence is an intensely hydrating, radiance-boosting facial essence that helps to prep, hydrate and brighten your skin. Gently pat it in for maximum benefits and some relaxation.
5) Use an effective eye cream
Our under-eye area is one of the most vulnerable areas where our skin shows fatigue and signs of aging. Do you know why? Our skin around the eyes is thinner than other parts of your body as there are no oil glands that can reduce dryness. Invest in Quench’s Mama Cica Dark Circle Fading Under Eye Cream that makes your eyes look well-rested as the advanced formula with hyaluronic acid and orange peel oil helps in minimizing the dark circles and under-eye puffiness.
6) Detox weekly with a sheet mask
During the night our skin is free from makeup and impurities. And investing in a sheet mask at night on cleansed skin helps your skin to get all the benefits of nutrients. Once you wake up in the morning, your skin will say thank you! Look for plumping sheet masks like our skin brightening Mon Cherry Sheet Mask that instantly boost hydration, lightens dark spots and smoothens fine lines. It is a rejuvenating, serum-soaked sheet mask that delivers instant hydration and suits all skin types.
7) Change your pillowcases frequently
You must be thinking why should we do that? Oil and bacteria get introduced into our skin while we are sleeping. And this is why it is important to sleep on a clean and fresh pillowcase every night especially if you have oily and acne-prone skin.
Trust us when we say this, these tips may seem overwhelming but once you start incorporating them into your skincare regime your skin will say thank you!
