Throughout the day, your skin is confronted with external nuisances such as pollution, tobacco, make-up but also bacteria. Before going to bed, it is therefore essential to rid your skin of all these toxins which are generally the cause of imperfections, dilated pores, dull complexion, premature ageing… Discover the ritual to adopt before going to bed to have a radiant skin in the morning.

Remove Make-up and Cleanse the Skin

The first step, and the one that should never be overlooked, is to remove make-up and cleanse your skin. It frees the skin and detoxifies it. To do this, it is important to gently cleanse your skin, for example, with our Micellar Water, which eliminates all the impurities accumulated by the skin during the day. 

Moisturize

Because our skin always needs hydration, even at night, remember to apply a night cream like our Shea Moisturizing Night Cream or our Shea Anti-Aging Night Cream.  In fact, while we sleep, our skin regenerates, meaning that new cells replace dead cells. A good hydration of the skin helps to preserve it from ageing and makes it more radiant.

Sleep

Lack of sleep also affects our skin. It causes an increase in cortisol, a stress hormone, and can lead to acne or eczema. In addition, lack of sleep inhibits good cell renewal and leads to premature skin ageing. It is recommended for an adult (25-70 years old) to sleep between 7 to 9 hours a night.

To enjoy a good night’s sleep, choose a light meal in the evening to avoid difficult digestion, and eat dinner at least an hour and a half before going to bed.

Create a real ritual before going to bed. Dim your lights, turn off your screens at least an hour before going to sleep. The blue light emitted by our screens (television, smartphone) disturbs our biological clock. Instead, read a book, do meditation and deep breathing exercises so that sleep comes faster.

For example:

Inhale deeply by inflating your belly, block your breathing for a few seconds (full lungs) then exhale completely through your mouth. Finally,  block your breathing for a few seconds (empty lungs).

This exercise will slow down your breathing and help you to fall asleep.

Now you know how to take care of your skin in the evening so that you have beautiful skin in the morning. At the moment, wearing the mask is putting your skin to the test? To discover our solutions, click here.
