One of the most common questions my brides ask me before their big day is, “What can I do to improve my skin for my wedding,” For me the answer is simple. Change your night time routine.
Night time is when your cells get repaired, energy is replenished, and the detox enzymes go to work. This all peaks at night when there is increased blood flow to the skin. So this means that whatever you apply before bed has the best chance of doing some good work for your skin. However this also means that any bad habits like not removing your makeup (top of my list for things to never do) can do some real damage to your skin during the night and over time.
As a beauty blogger I am so lucky that I get given lovely goodies to try. I only ever talk about the products that I truly love and I recently got three skincare products that have become my nightly skincare routine.
Firstly I take my makeup off. Taking my makeup off is one of my favourite things to do. I love that fresh feeling I get after all my makeup is off. One mistake I used to make was I would use a cleanser that was too harsh and foamy and all it did was dry my skin. So when I tried the Trilogy Make-Up Be Gone Cleansing Balm it was a total game changer!
The balm softens and melts on contact with warm skin and massages easily onto the face, it removes foundation, mascara and lipstick, even long- wear and waterproof formulations with zero harsh scrubbing or rubbing required!
With skin-soothing mango butter and pure oils of coconut, sunflower and rosehip, this lush golden balm is a single step to clean, hydrated, supple skin.
Next I apply HYDRO BOOST® GEL CREAM.
This cream is an oil-free formula containing hydrating hyaluronic acid, an ingredient naturally found in the skin, which acts as a sponge for dry skin cells, hydrating up to 1000 times its weight in water leaving your skin feeling more supple and smooth. HYDRO BOOST GEL CREAM also contains moisture locking Beeswax, which strengthens the skin barrier by forming a moisture locking protective shield.
What I love most about this cream is how my skin’s texture is so even when I wake up…So yes I did wake up like this.
Last but not least I apply the Age Reversal Eye Complex from Dermalogica.
Powered up to reverse the signs of ageing around the eye area while you sleep, Age Reversal Eye Complex from Dermalogica® features new microencapsulation technology and a unique firming complex to help reduce fine lines and wrinkles, puffiness and dark under eye circles. I have always had dark circles so this is a saving grace!
Well thats my night time routine. Nothing crazy but it works for me. Now I am off to sleep to get that much needed beauty sleep. xox
