After a long hectic day, rummaging through our skin care products is the least of the things we could think of doing. We lazily skip from these night time beauty treatments and go straight to Slumberland.
Truth is, our body repairs and recovers as we snooze. A good night’s sleep is essential to achieve healthier skin but we need to add a little bit of effort in order for the skin to retain its beauty. So here are pre-bedtime beauty regimens you can adapt to wake up looking refreshed and gorgeous:
Go to Bed with a Clean Face
Leaving your makeup on all night is a big no-no! Sleeping in your makeup causes serious damage to your skin and promotes the growth of bacteria. In fact, leaving foundation on your skin clogs your pores and gives you acne. It also breaks down collagen, bringing out the premature signs of ageing such as wrinkles and fine lines.
Do yourself a favour—wash your face before heading to bed. Take off all your makeup even if you feel super tired. Try the Perfect Pore Cleansing Oil and the Katfood #NoFilter Makeup Remover before bedtime. According to the reviews on our site, these two can remove all residues of makeup on your skin. If you want something that’s equally efficient yet hydrating, the Micellar Cleansing Water is for you. 🙂
Slip into a Warm Bath
Soak in the tub with warm water for 20 to 30 minutes, two hours before hitting the sack. This helps detoxify, increase metabolism, and calm your nervous system. It also relaxes the skin and opens up your pores, giving you the opportunity to deeply clean and moisturise your skin. Make this evening bath more special with the Cafe Paris Tartlette. Toss it in the water, watch it fizz, and smell the sweet scent of Paris romance and roses fill the air. Let your skin absorb the richness of the cocoa and shea butter. For best results, massage the oils into your skin before dying yourself with a towel.

Apply a Face Mask

If you want a facial without leaving the comfort of your home, put on a face mask. A mask works in several ways—as an antioxidant, moisturiser and anti-ageing. It is one of the easiest and effective ways to target many skin issues such as fine lines, wrinkles, oily and even blemished skin. With so many options out there, your best key is to find the best mask for your skin type. It’s best to ask your dermatologist regarding the best and ideal face mask for your skin. If you tailor your skin care routine to the exact needs of your skin, the better the results.
Moisturise Your Face and Neck Areas
Forgetting to apply moisturiser as one of your night time beauty treatments is one mistake almost everyone commits. Night creams nourish and hydrate your skin as you sleep. The nutrients seep better in your skin because you’re already relaxed and exposed to less pollution.
When buying your evening facial moisturiser, it’s important to check the label. You can’t go wrong with night creams that contain ingredients of antioxidants formula, peptides, vitamins C and A. Try the Sothys Energizing Night Cream. This cream promotes cell regeneration and exfoliation added with Sephora flower extract that helps get rid of toxic build up.
Believe us, all of these won’t take up more than an hour. Take care of yourself, Gorgeous! <3
