Coming back from the party or dinner at night, remember the first thing which you need to do is to wipe out your makeup. Traces of eye liner, mascara, foundation, lip color if left any should be removed. What you require is a cotton ball or wipes with a good makeup remover. Always use different wipes for eyes, lips and face.
A splash of lukewarm water
Use of hot water may dehydrate your face and cold water will not close the pores. So it is better to use lukewarm water to relax your face.
Cleanse with cleanser
An antioxidant-rich cleanser is efficient in removing the leftover grime and dirt from the skin. Gentle cleansers will help retain the natural oils but remove the damaging free radicals. Don’t scrub, instead, pat dry your face with a towel.
Use of Toner
The purpose of a toner is to restore the delicate pH balance of the skin and it preps the pores to receive the reviving ingredients such as antioxidants, toning acids, vitamin derivatives etc. Take a quarter-size toner on your palm and gently press it on your face, do not swab or rub it in.
Care and cure
This one is a customized step which can be done according to your skin concern. Serums, spot treatments, special creams are all part of this step. The recommendation is to focus on hydrating and regeneration products to boost the health levels of the skin. Serums deliver product deeper into the skin.
Many benefits are listed for eye creams usage, it helps to keep the skin elastic, prevent the fine lines from forming, and getting rid of the dark circles. Targeted treatment using eye creams containing peptides will help boost collagen and blood flow around the eyes.
When we are sleeping the moisture is pulled away from our skin. Invest in some good skin-repairing moisturizers which can stay on your skin the whole night. Even people with oily skin need to use moisturizers as they help combat overproduction of sebum, preventing clogging of pores leading to breakouts. Do not rub the moisturizer on the skin, instead, spread and massage with gentle circular motions.
You can also include these apart from the above basic steps.
Giving a massage to your skin with specially formulated oils to reduce the puffiness and to improve the blood circulation will surely help.
Using a mask which suits your skin twice or thrice a week after cleaning will give a bright glow.
Moreover, gentle exfoliation twice a week after cleansing will help improve the overall texture and tone of the skin. You can also consult your dermatologist for recommendations in chemical exfoliation. Chemical exfoliation helps in slowing down the ageing process.
