We’ve all been there: after an exhausting day, we rush through our nighttime routine just to wake up with a face full of regret. We get it, we do but since the body does its most important work while you sleep, you just have to give it a little help. Try one or all of these steps to wake up looking and feeling beautiful.
Remove ALL hints of makeup
If this is the only step you accomplish, then you’re way ahead of the game. This is probably the most important aspect of a nighttime beauty routine. When short on time, a face wipe will suffice but it’s advisable to begin with a cleansing oil and then follow with your favorite cleanser.
Exfoliate, exfoliate, exfoliate
Buff away those dead skin cells that have been accumulating all day long. It will help you look glowy but make sure that you avoid over-exfoliating by only using a peel or face scrub about once or twice a week to avoid drying out your skin.
Do not make the mistake of using a daytime moisturizer; find a nighttime cream/serum that will help you lock in moisture for the next day.
Get at least 6 hours of sleep
This might seem a little redundant but beauty rest is not a myth. It allows your body to reverse the damage of the day so sneak in all the zzz’s you can, your face and body will thank you later.
