Follow these bedtime beauty rituals to wake up to amazing skin in the morning

During the day, your skin and hair is exposed to several environmental aggressors that can damage it. This is why it’s recommended to use a broad spectrum sunscreen, moisturiser and a hat or scarf during the day to keep the skin protected. However, at night, when the body is relaxed, it goes into repair mode. What you do for your skin and hair before hitting the sheets can transform your skin (for the good). Follow these pre-bedtime skincare rituals to wake up to radiant skin in the morning.


01. Remove every trace of makeup

Not taking your makeup off before going to bed can invite a host of skin problems like acne, inflammation, itching, etc.. To get rid of every last trace of makeup, wash your face twice aka double cleanse — a Korean skincare ritual we swear by. First, start by using an oil-based cleanser to get rid of your makeup and surface dirt (oil is more effective at breaking down makeup). Then, follow it up with a gentle face wash to get rid of the remaining residue.

02. The serum is a must

Tie your hair

When your skin goes into repair mode at night, using skincare products with potent ingredients can give your skin a firmer, smoother texture and make pores appear smaller. Serums are loaded with highly concentrated ingredients that contain vitamins and nutrients to address specific skin concerns. Applying a serum before hitting the sheets will give your skin a healthy glow, help repair itself more efficiently and increase blood circulation for a radiant glow.

03. Apply eye cream

Tie your hair

If your nighttime routine does not include eye cream, your eyes will look puffy, tired and wrinkly. Even if you have clear and healthy facial skin, your eyes will make you look old and mature. Therefore, it is necessary to massage your eye area with an eye cream for a few minutes before going to bed.

04. Moisturise your hands

Tie your hair

While it’s necessary to apply hand cream throughout the day, applying it at night will give your hands enough time to absorb the moisture. This way you will wake up with smooth, soft and nourished hands.

It is recommended to tie your hair into a bun or braid at night, this will prevent frizz as well as unwanted knots and tangles that can waste your time in the morning.
