Everyone has skin care routine steps they follow each night, or at least they should. A night skin care routine preps your skin for the next morning. More than that, it includes the tools your skin needs to heal throughout the night. Your doctor or cosmetic surgeon can only take you part of the way. In order for your skin to reach optimal results, you should be caring for your skin with a personalized skin care regimen and products as well. Follow these five simple steps.
Give Your Skin a Good Cleanse
It's important to follow these skin care routine steps in order, beginning with cleansing your skin. Now is the time to get rid of any makeup you wore throughout the day. Use something gentle that takes off your makeup completely and works with your skin tone. Some people prefer to remove their cosmetics using makeup remover wipes, while others use makeup removal creams or gels. It's not uncommon for people to take off their makeup with the help of their nightly cleanser, either. What you use is entirely up to you, and what’s best for your skin.
Cleansing is a vital part of your nightly routine. You may choose to apply your cleanser with a facial brush, but be careful not to apply too much pressure. Otherwise, you run the risk of damaging your skin. Applying your facial wash with your fingertips is fine, too, as long as you wash your hands first. Dr. Salameh's Multi-Action Cleanser is ideal for all skin types. It brightens your skin while getting rid of dead skin cells, debris, and your makeup. Regular use will stimulate your skin to produce new cells and illuminate your complexion.
Get to Toning
Toner is an essential part of any effective night skin care routine. You can apply it during your daytime regimen, as well, especially when you're just out of the shower. You need a quality toner to balance the pH level of your skin. In fact, Salameh Skin Care has a pH Balancing Toner that gets the job done beautifully. The toner also gets your skin ready and open for everything that comes after this step.
To apply it properly, pat your face dry after rinsing off your cleanser. Skin care experts recommend that you pour a bit of your toner into your palm and press it into the skin of your face. You might be used to blotting it on with a cotton ball or pad, but that's not the best method. The toner doesn't penetrate your pores.
Don't dry your face after you put on the toner. Allow your skin to air dry instead. Take a few moments to do something else, or fan your face to speed up the process. However, give it time to dry thoroughly before you move on to the next step.
Break Out the Retinol
Not all skin care routine steps include the topical application of retinoid, but they should. Over-the-counter products that have retinoid are labeled as having retinol. Using a pad or serum, you can apply it everywhere on your face, with the exception of the corners of your lips, the creases beside your nose, and anywhere around your eyes.
Regular use of retinol will unclog your pores and keep them clear, in addition to balancing your complexion, stimulating the production of collagen, and promoting anti-aging effects. You can add Dr. Salameh’s Retinol Pads to your skin care regimen to benefit from the fading of fine lines and wrinkles, cellular regeneration, and protection against damage from the sun and free radicals. Retinol is powerful, making it all too easy to dry out your skin. Pre-soaked pads prevent you from doing that. All the same, choose a creamy, hydrating moisturizer for the next step.
An excellent night cream heals and hydrates your skin as you sleep. Although you don't want anything greasy, you do need a heavy-duty moisturizer. It has to do its job all night, after all. Don't try to cheat by using your daytime moisturizer at night. Daytime moisturizers have a more lightweight consistency than nighttime versions. The best ones contain sunscreen, as well, to protect your skin whenever you go out of doors. If you need something for the daylight hours, then you should try the Anti-Aging SPF 30 Moisturizer from Dr. Salameh.
As you go through your night skin care routine, you don't need to worry about aesthetics. That is, it’s no concern that your cream is thick on your face or leaves a shine on your skin. It doesn't matter while you're sleeping. You can reap all the benefits of a nutrient-rich moisturizer with hardcore hydration. To do that, pick out a moisturizer that contains antioxidants, along with vitamin A and vitamin C. The addition of peptides will pep and plump up your skin, as well.
A Little Love for the Eyes
The last skin care routine step to follow in the evening involves your eyes. Once you're all toned and moisturized, you're mostly done. Before you fall asleep, however, you need to turn your attention to the delicate skin around your eyes. Laugh lines, frown lines, wrinkles, and dark circles around the eyes can age you even if you're not that old. Gently dabbing on eye cream as your last step will give that fragile skin a chance to heal itself and rejuvenate.
Ultimate Rejuvenating Eye Complex from Dr. Salameh contains tried and tested ingredients that are proven to reduce puffiness, eliminate dark circles, and improve the appearance of wrinkles. Nightly use of vitamin A, vitamin E, neem extract, and peptides, among others, will have you looking bright-eyed and wide awake every day.
