Like all things, having great skin takes work – and there are plenty of things you can do to improve the health and quality of your skin. One of the best ways to improve the health of your skin is to focus on your nighttime routine. Sleep is a period of rest and restoration for the body, and skin is no exception to the rule. By taking a few simple steps before bed each night, you can help your body rejuvenate your skin on a daily basis, achieving healthier, more youthful skin in the long term.
Follow these simple tips, and you’ll notice an improvement in your skin – and if you can keep the routine going, your skin will only get better.
Take Off All Your Makeup: One of the simplest, most effective things you can do is to remove all of your makeup before sleeping. Makeup residue left on your face during sleep can clog pores, causing blackheads, breakouts, and general irritation in your skin.
Wash & Gently Cleanse Your Face: Be sure to wash your face before bed, and consider using a gentle cleanser to remove any left over dirt or oils. Keeping your skin fresh before bed will help it stay fresh for the morning.
Moisturize: Most skin care problems are due to dehydration or dryness, so using a gentle moisturizer each night is a great way to keep skin healthier. Bedtime is an ideal time for moisturizer because it’ll act on your skin all through the night, helping you wake up with fresh, soft skin.
Get Good Sleep: This does wonders for skin, and it’s good for your whole body as well. 8 hours of quality sleep every night will improve everything in your body, skin included.
Following these simple tips will help protect your skin and prevent problems, and if you have any more questions about daily skincare, skin health or skin rejuvenation treatment, make sure to contact your dermatologist.
