How to layer your skin care products before bed?

A good way to ensure your skin looks its best is to start a skin care routine that suits your life style and skin care needs. Here are some smart tips to help you layer your skincare products better before you go to bed.

Cleanser – To deliver ingredients to your skin, you will need to ensure your skin is clean and free of dirt and makeup. Start off by using a good quality cleanser to remove any dirt, sweat, and makeup from your skin. Look at investing in a gentle cream, gel, or foaming cleanser.

Exfoliate – Avoid exfoliating daily as this can cause the surface of the skin to get damaged. Look at exfoliating your skin twice a week to gently remove dead skin cells and dirt that may block pores.

Treatment products – If you suffer from stubborn acne, age spots, uneven texture look at investing in a few facial treatment products. Look at products with benzoyl peroxide, retinoid, topical acne medication and prescription creams to treat your skin while you sleep. To provide intense treatment for scarring, consider applying a mask at least twice a month before bed.

Serums – Serums are great to provide concentrated treatment to smaller areas on your skin.

Eye creams – Eye creams can brighten and boost collagen under and around the eye. Remember that the skin near your eye is thinner and delicate so always use your ring finger to apply creams in gentle strokes.

Moisturizer – Look at applying a light daily moisturizer and a heavier night cream to give your skin the moisture and the ingredients that it needs to look its best.
