PM is the best time of the day to give your skin that much needed TLC. Dedicate 15 minutes of your day to just hydrating and nourishing your skin with some overnight treatment. You'll wake up to plump, healthy-looking skin. Pick and choose your treatment on the basis of your skin concerns. Here's a quick and easy 3 step night-time skincare routine that's going to help you get your glow on!
Once you've cleansed your face in the evening, put on a lightweight serum followed by a moisturiser or a sleeping mask. Finally, use a facial oil to lock in all of that goodness! Give each product 5 minutes to sink in before applying the next. Another pro tip, use a dabbing and patting motion instead of rubbing the product into your skin. That way your skin doesn't get dragged down everytime you do your night routine.
A serum is a lightweight essence that penetrates through the deeper layers of your skin. It ensures that your skin is nourished from the inside out. Here are some serum's we love.
