7 Things You Should Be Doing Before Bed For Perfect Skin
While the above holds true, what better way to pamper your skin than to coat it with essential nutrients and let it soak up all the goodness while you get your beauty sleep the whole night!
Inspired by the Korean 12-step beauty regiment, we bring you the basic necessary steps out of all of them combined.
1. Double cleanse
Whether you have makeup on or not, if you’ve used a sunblock, you must use a makeup remover to get it off. Sunblock lasts forever on our faces (being waterproof and all) and you can’t leave it on and continue with the rest of the beauty process!
This product is as gentle as water is on your skin. Moreover, it acts like a makeup remover, toner and skin soother in this all in one micellar water. The micellar solution acts like a purifying magnet on the skin’s surface to capture and draw out excess oil and impurities, leaving the skin soothed, cleansed and toned. Get it at Althea for just P597.50!
After removing your makeup, cleanse your face one more time to make sure all the dirt has been removed and your pores are unclogged, with a simple cleanser:
HydraFresh cleanser from L’oreal removes all traces of impurities and is gentle on your face for a double wash. Get it at Sephora for P430.50!
Make sure to cleanse every part of your face, and massage lightly into your skin! The act of merely splashing water onto your face is just a product of Facial Commercials.
Apart from removing the subtle traces of grime from your face, applying toner helps to shrink pores, give your skin a pH balance, moisturize and refreshes your skin as well!
Follow up with the L’oreal HydraFresh mask-in lotion that has been infused with the finest French Grape Seed Extract, a powerful antioxidant that helps neutralize free radicals to protect your skin against the dulling and damaging effects of external aggressors.
This is also a multi-purpose lotion that can be used as essence or a face mask! Only at P831.50 from Althea, it boosts your skin’s hydration so that your skin is quenched, softened and appears more radiant.
Personally, this is my favorite facial pampering step. My skin always feels softer after a good exfoliating session! For exfoliators, I tend to veer towards natural based ones because too much chemicals can be rather harsh when you’re rubbing them in!
After scouring around Luxola, I found a few exfoliators that are worth your every cent.
The Just Herbs Apricot Scrub is deliciously invigorating for your skin! It restores your complexion, smoothens out rough skin patches and regenerates your skin cells. It’s going at only P634.50 on Althea!
Another yummy scrub to try is Korres Pomegranate Cleansing Scrub for only P668!
Pomegranate extract is rich in tannins and reduces pore size while rejuvenating skin. It refines the appearance of black spots and removes excess sebum to leave your skin radiant, glowing and clear.
When choosing an exfoliator, it’s best to go for food based products that are gentle on your skin, so it doesn’t feel like you’re using sandpaper!
After exfoliating, you need a mask to pack nutrients in before bedtime!
For your every need, there is a mask for it. Dry skin? Oily skin? Acne-prone skin? Ageing skin? You name it; you can find a mask for it. Of course we’ll still recommend you some of the best sellers out there!
Our favorite brand on Zalora is Leader’s Insolution!
Leader’s Insolution is from Korea, that’s right, the country famous for its face masks! Choose from their wide array of facial masks for every need and purpose, at an affordable price!
When it comes to Serums, you have to trust Skin Inc.
Skin Inc is the world’s first Skin Supplement Bar offering highly concentrated, 100% pure and active serums and skincare from Japan. The brand specializes in custom-blending of skincare to suit every individual’s needs!
They have extremely pretty packaging too!
The benefits of adding serum into your nightly routine is that it’s loaded with nutrients, ceramides, glycerin and vitamins and have the ability to penetrate deep within the layers of your skin so that you get phenomenal results.
Invest in a good night moisturizer especially if you sleep in an air-conditioned room! It prevents your skin from drying up towards the end of the night!
The Olay Regenerist Micro Sculpting Moisturizer Cream (P1669.50) is fragrance-free and “accelerates surface cell turnover to give you visible wrinkle-free results starting from day 1!
7. Night Cream
Finally, the last step is to slap on some night cream that is packed with goodness.
