If you want to wake up to beautiful, soft and glowing skin each morning, then you need to prep your skin accordingly every night. Yes, a night-time skincare routine is super important because it is while you sleep that your skin repairs, heals and rejuvenates itself. What this means is that you need to nourish your skin with the right kind of products, allow them to work their magic through the night and give you baby soft skin the next morning.
To help you get started, here are some skin-loving products that every girl needs to use in her night-time skincare routine.
01. Micellar water + Cleanser
Whether or not you wear makeup during the day, it is still mandatory to clean your face thoroughly before going to bed. This helps to not only get rid of makeup if any, but also clears away dirt, sweat, oil and grime that may have accumulated on your face during the day. Cleansing prevents clogged pores and breakouts and forms the basics of achieving clear skin.
No matter what your skin concern, there is a serum for it out there. These little babies are a god-send when it comes to fighting skin concerns and we highly recommend that you use one every single night. The active ingredients in a serum help to deliver fast, targeted action while you sleep, so that your skin starts looking better in just the first few uses.
03. Eye cream
From staring at our phones and laptop screens all day to watching TV and reading, our eyes truly go through a lot of stress during the day. Therefore, it only makes sense to pamper them at night. Applying a calming, soothing and moisturising eye cream before going to bed ensures that you wake up to bright eyes with lesser dark circles. Also, an eye cream helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in the long run.

04. Night Cream
Just like you nourish your face each morning using a moisturiser, a night cream acts like a moisturiser with slightly more potent benefits. When choosing a night cream, it is important to pick one that meets your skin’s special needs. From anti-ageing to moisturising and brightening, each night cream does something different, so choose accordingly.

05. Lip balm
A lip balm is the most underrated product when it comes to a night-time skincare routine, but applying a little lip balm right before bed helps to intensely nourish your lips, heal and hydrate chapped lips and make them appear super soft and supple the next morning.
