We spend a lot of money on quality skincare products, especially those used in night time routine as they are loaded with antioxidants and other vital ingredients. But have you ever wondered if your skin is reaping all the benefits or are these products getting rubbed off onto the pillowcase at night?
If you often find yourself complaining that your skin looks dull and mature even after following a good skincare routine then chances are that the skincare products are getting absorbed by the pillow and not your skin. How do you prevent this from happening? Here are a few tips that might help.
Let the products absorb completely
A common mistake that most women make with night time skincare products is that they apply the products on the skin and go to bed immediately. This gives the skin little to no time to absorb all the products and therefore, you can’t see any results. There’s no rule as to how long one should wait after applying each product because it also depends on the texture. Serums like the Lakme Absolute Skin Gloss Reflection Serum have a smooth and runny texture and gets easily absorbed by the skin.
Use lightweight products
Another tip is to use a lightweight product instead of using a heavy-duty moisturiser that will take a long time to get absorbed. The Lakme Absolute Ideal Tone Refinishing Night Concentrate is a lightweight potent formula that gets absorbed into the skin instantly. If you’re someone who doesn’t have time for an elaborate nighttime routine, this product is all you need to get bright, youthful and even-looking skin.
Sleep on your back
One of the easiest ways to stop your skincare products from getting absorbed by the pillow while you sleep is by sleeping on your back. Sleeping on the side or your stomach makes your facial skin come in direct contact with the surface of your pillow, causing the product to rub off easily. Another benefit of sleeping on your back is that it keeps premature ageing and breakouts at bay. Your pillow carries dirt, oil from your face, hair product residue and more which gets transferred onto the skin and causes problems.
