We already know how important moisturizing and hydration are if you want to keep your skin healthy and slow down the aging signs. But, drinking plenty of water and using moisturizer daily isn’t the only thing you should do if you want stunning skin.
If you’re ready for a proper skincare routine, continue reading and find out all about having perfectly hydrated skin and how to moisturize it overnight so that you can have a fresh, glowing appearance in the morning.
Remove Makeup Without Drying Out Your Skin
No matter your skin type, removing your makeup and washing your face after a long day are mandatory steps in your beauty routine. Wash away the day and let your skin breathe, but don’t forget that, when you pick your products, you must consider your skin type.
If you have dry skin, we recommend an oil cleanser. It will dissolve the makeup, dirt, and sebum, leaving your skin soft and replenished. And, if you don’t like store-bought makeup removers, you can always give coconut oil a try. According to Carl Thornfeldt, MD, the founder of Epionce Skincare, coconut oil is antibacterial, anti-yeast, and thanks to its detergent effect, it can be a great makeup remover, especially for your lips and eyes.
We already talked about exfoliation and, if you read our article about this topic, you already know how to exfoliate away the dead skin cells and make room for fresh, smooth, and healthy skin. However, while we love exfoliating and helping beauty products penetrate the skin better, we don’t recommend it more than one to two times a week.
Too much exfoliation can have the opposite effect, and we don’t want to exacerbate dryness. Also, we recommend a chemical exfoliant, being gentler on the skin than physical ones, making micro-tears a non-issue. Keep in mind that exfoliating is a night routine because it can lead to more sensitivity to the sun.
Hydrating Serums & Overnight Face Mask
We like to call dehydrated skin thirsty skin because it is longing for hydrating serums and creams. When applied at night, working with the body's circadian rhythm, a high-quality serum repairs the skin and promotes cell renewal.
To enhance hydration, we also like to put on an overnight face mask and let them pamper our skin while sound asleep. These masks are specifically created to wear while you sleep, and you can easily wash them away in the morning.
Something else we love doing for our skin during the night is wearing the Blumbody smoothing pads and patches. This fantastic, non-invasive way to improve irregular collagen structure and increase blood flow will rejuvenate your skin, will give you the chance to wake up with a smooth, gorgeous complexion.
Pay Extra Attention to Your Eyes and Lips
I bet you already know that some areas of your skin are more sensitive than others. The thin skin surrounding your eyes, for instance, is so delicate that it needs a bit of extra attention. Use creams and serums specifically formulated for the area that work to diminish wrinkles, puffiness, and dark circles.
And, since we’re talking about extra attention, we should also mention the lips and their need for an overnight mask. Fortunately, there are plenty of options available, and they promise intense hydration and soft, supple lips in the morning. If you want 100% natural moisturizing for your lips, coconut oil is your best friend!
Don’t Forget About Your Clothes & Sheets
If you have dry skin, forget about your old pajamas and spoil yourself with a new pair made of soft, non-irritating fabrics such as silk, flannel, or cotton. Also, we suggest you wash your clothes with hypoallergenic, free of dyes and perfumes detergent because you don’t want your skin to be touched by substances that might aggravate dryness.
Last but not least, make sure your sheets are made of good fabric like cotton or silk, as well. The wrong material can be rough against your skin, as well as soak up your hydrating overnight masks and creams. Not to mention that a high-quality fabric will feel so nice that you’ll sleep like a baby!
