ATTENTION, ATTENTION…..beauty sleep is REAL! While you rest your beautiful head, your skin is renewing itself. That’s why when you don’t get enough sleep you will definitely notice that you look like it. Beauty experts and dermatologists suggest that 6-8 hours of rest is the typical amount of time needed. This coupled with the proper nighttime beauty regimen will keep you looking youthful and refreshed. Here are four products best used at bedtime.
A great exfoliation to the skin before bedtime will give the renewal process an additional boost. It’s always best to use these types of products at night, as it exposes your pores and makes them quite vulnerable. It’s also great to try and use an over the counter glycolic peel every once and a while as well. A good, but pricey option is la prairie cellular 3-minute peel. You can also make your own.
Retinol is key to the skin renewal process, as the Vitamin A it contains, creates bonds that repairs damage done to the skin, as well as build the collagen levels back up. It’s great to try to mix this with a moisturizer, as it adds a layer of protection. Try Kate Somerville RetAsphere 2-in-1 Retinol Night Cream.
