The Best Nighttime Skin Care Regimen

Oct 23, 2017 | Skin Care, SkinMedica

You may not know it, but your nighttime skin care routine is just as important as what you do for your skin in the morning. Make sure that your skin is properly treated by following these steps!

Skin Care Routines Before Bed

Cleanse and remove makeup properly—Make sure to use makeup remover to take off your makeup. Using water does not always get your makeup off, and you want to make sure that you sleep with the cleanest skin possible. Once you have removed your makeup, we recommend using SkinMedica facial cleansers to make sure that your skin is as clean as possible.
Apply retinols—Retinols work best when used at night so that they can seep into your skin as you sleep. Retinol, a highly concentrated version of vitamin A, can diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while simultaneously improving your skin’s tone and texture. We recommend the Retinol Complex by SkinMedica to hydrate your skin and give it the nourishment it needs in your skin care routine.
skincareMoisturize—Moisturizing isn’t just a morning activity, especially if you have dry skin or live in a dry environment. Although in the morning, you may want to use a moisturizer with SPF, you don’t need to use SPF at night. We recommend the SkinMedica Ultimate Sheer Moisturizer or the TNS Ultimate Daily Moisturizer with SPF 20 for when you want to make sure that your skin is protected from the sun.
Your nighttime skin care routine is just as important as your morning routine! Make sure to get plenty of sleep to make sure that your skin and health are properly maintained.
