The last thing many women want to do at the end of the day is worry about their beauty regime and what skin care products to wear or not to wear to bed. By the time I pack away my notebooks and laptop at the end of the working day, I am very tired and usually have a back ache. I am then usually passed out on the couch until bedtime. Being super groggy after these naps meant that my skin really suffered because of it. It wasn't until I discovered this simple before bedtime routine that my skin improved with only a few minutes of additional time spent in the bathroom.
The Facial Cleanser
Soon after you remove all your makeup right before bed, it is important that you apply a simple facial cleanser to help remove sweat, dirt, and dead skin. These facial cleansers are much different than a bar of soap. They are specifically designed to work on your particular skin type. If you have oily, dry, or flaky skin, make sure you buy the cleanser that is right for your skin type; giving you the best results.
Applying the Toner
Once you have removed the makeup and cleansed the skin, it is time to simply apply some toner. Many women skip this step, and then wonder why the wrinkles and fine lines on the face seem to be getting worse. The sun can do serious damage to your skin even while driving in your car back and forth to work each day. A toner will remove any of the residue that is left behind from your makeup or the facial cleanser you just used. I apply the toner to my face gently with my fingertips in small circular motions, and within days I could see an improvement.
The Facial Lotion and Moisturiser
The trick is to first make sure that the toner is dry before moving on to the next step. This should only take an additional minute or two, so don't feel like you just increased your bathroom time by long periods. Apply a very light coat of moisturizer to the skin to help keep the face supple. Those fine lines that you have around the eyes and mouth should begin to slowly fade away but this also depends on what products you are using. The first thing I noticed was my laugh lines and crows feet were less visible after a week of trying this incredible before bed routine.
Regardless if you have dry skin or not, a moisturiser will benefit your face for years to come. One other thing you want to consider too is the quality of sleep you are getting each night. My boyfriend recently purchased a new bed at cutpricemattress and I seem to fall asleep faster than ever before when I sleep at his house. This combined with my before bedtime routine has my face and skin looking and feeling younger than ever before.
