Remove every bit of makeup
We cannot stress enough how important it is to get every bit of makeup, dirt and oil óff from your face before going to bed at night. Double cleansing is the need of the hour. So, start by cleansing your face with the Pond’s Vitamin Micellar Water Hydrating Aloe Vera and follow it up with a mild cleanser such as the Dove Deep Pure Oil Control Facial Cleanser. Thorough cleansing ensures your skin can breathe and repair itself at night.
Don’t skip the eye cream
Every beauty blogger and skincare expert will focus on CTM, but very few of them will tell you to use an eye cream or serum. While CTM is non-negotiable, so is applying an under-eye cream as the area around the eyes show the first signs of ageing. The Lakme Absolute Argan Oil Radiance Night Revival Eye Cream is an argan oil-infused formula that nourishes the skin and makes your eyes look brighter.
Use a silk pillowcase
The soft texture of silk pillowcases is better for your skin, hair and sleep. The reason why skin experts recommend replacing your cotton pillowcases with silk ones is because they cause less friction on the skin and hair, preventing irritation and damage. Also, they do not absorb all the skincare products you have applied before going to bed.
Drink a glass of water
Water keeps your skin hydrated and glowing, therefore drinking a glass of water before going to bed is always a good idea. Hydrating your skin from the inside out keeps it looking plump, healthy and taut.
Get enough sleep
Last but not the least, getting enough sleep is the most important of all. You cannot expect your skin to look gorgeous while staying up late every night. Put your gadgets away at least an hour before going to bed and put a few drops of lavender essential oil on your pillowcase for better and deeper sleep.
