There is no temptation worse than wanting to hit the sack after a quick cleanse. But even if you are blessed with the most beautiful features, lacklustre skin is a big no-no. Nightfall is the best time to repair your skin as it reverses the damage done during the day, while you are sleeping. Flaunt tighter and smoother skin in no time with these 7 easy steps.
Step 1: Wash the dirt and grime off your face with cleanser and warm water in soft circular motions. A thorough and gentle cleanse opens up your pores, removes sebum and soothes irritated skin that is the culprit behind aging skin and radiance loss.
Step 2: Apply toner to your face after it is pat dry. An alcohol free toner closes up your pores, restores the pH of your skin, and rids off unwanted impurities that the cleanser could not remove. This is also the step that prepares your skin for better nutrient absorption for the next step.
Step 3: With your finger tips, gently massage your face from the middle of your face in an outward motion with an age corrective serum. Massaging aids in blood circulation and eliminates free radicals and blackheads. Age corrective serums are chock full of antioxidants and anti-aging ingredients that defend against wrinkles, discoloration, and age spots.
Step 4: Use a sufficient amount of eye cream and tap on the delicate areas around your eyes to avoid pulling and tugging of the skin. Eye creams are the perfect for tackling puffiness, dark circles, and crow’s feet around the eyes.
Step 5: We are not done yet! Apply a thin layer of deep penetrating moisturizer while your skin is still damp for that extra boast of lasting hydration.
Step 6: How could we forget about the lips? Lip balm with SPF 15 and higher is the solution to chapped lips. Choose one that comes with a hint of color for that sultry and resplendent pout.
Step 7: Your regime is not complete without a clay mask. Pamper your face by applying a mask every fortnightly, facial masks give the face a luminous glow, making it the perfect pampering and soothing end to your skincare regimen.
