Since these times have made it a challenge to juggle between roles at work and home from achieving work deadlines to acing personal goals,me-time often goes amiss. On this note, taking the time to unwind with a hobby and a night time skincare regime will work wonders on the skin says experts, leaving it fresh and glowing all day long. Dr Geetika Mittal, Dermatologist and Skin Expert, shares a few bedtime skin care tips that will help your skin feel refreshed and rejuvenated every morning
Hydrate Hydrate Hydrate
With all the work and deadlines we manage the whole day, drinking enough water is something that slips our mind very often. Lack of water means less radiance and more saggy skin. While it is important to drink lots of water and hydrate our body, it is equally important to provide the required amount of moisture to our skin. You can also use a sheet mask once a week, which contains rich moisturizers and extracts to give your skin a calming, and relaxed feel. This will not only soothe your skin by also improve your sleep mood so when you wake up, you are greeted with skin that is well hydrated, plump and glowing.
Recharge with Retinol
Imagine waking up with fresh and glowing skin every day, which is like a dream come true for most of us. Our skin is more permeable at night, that is, it is more receptive to skincare products and it loses significant hydration as you sleep. So, to make the most out of your beauty sleep and consider using a Retinol-rich moisturiser or serum in your regime. Pick the Retinol night serum with the right mix of Niacinaminde andRetinol, which keeps your skin hydrated for 24 hours and penetrates 10 layers deep into your skin’s surface layers. Also known as Vitamin A, this ingredient not only prevents new wrinkles but also smooths out existing fine lines and wrinkles, as well as fade dark spots, sunspots and hyperpigmentation, evening out your skin tone overtime. With this magical elixir, your skin will feel more radiant, glowing and supple when you wake up.
Sleep Well, Sleep Enough
Eight hours of sleep is important but how you are sleeping also makes a difference. When most people sleep, they tend to do it on their side or stomach pressing their face and chest into their pillows. Even though these can be the most comforting positions to get your sleep, it could damage skin-smoothing collagen over time. For a healthy glowing face, practice sleeping on your back and keep your skin as free from contact as possible. It is also important to change your pillowcases and bed linen a minimum of once a week to ensure that your skin is rested in a clean space, and can work its magic to rejuvenate and repair itself over-night.
