Living the busy, incredibly hectic everyday life tends to take its toll on every one of us. We tend to get cranky, upset, impatient, in need for a breather, and that comfy sofa or warm bed, which are patiently waiting for your arrival at the end of the day, are all you can think about when you get back home after a long day at work or school.

Just like you and I, our skin gets tired and choked up due to all the dirt, smoke and exposure to extreme weather conditions which damages the skin’s outer – and inner – layers. If you don’t take care of your skin before going to sleep, even though you will wake up after having a good night sleep, it will fail to show on your skin which lacked the energy and the resources to do so.

Which is why, even though you’re dying to put your head down and just go to sleep, it is crucial to make sure your skin will have a good night sleep too. The good news is it doesn’t take much effort to do so – here’s how:

First Thing First – Properly Cleanse Your Face!

The first step in every skin care routine is to properly cleanse the face. Use your choice of makeup remover, either wipes or Facial Cleansing Milk, and gently take it all off.
Afterwards, wash your face with warm water – the high temperature of the water will open up your skin’s pores, making the cleansing more effective. Don’t use that towel just yet! – put a bit of your facial cleanser soap in your hands and rub it until it foams. Then massage it gently in circular motions onto your damp face for up to two minutes, and rinse it off with cold water – the low temperature works now as a pore sealer – and pat it dry.
The last step during your cleansing routine is to splash some alcohol-free facial toner – make sure you do it according to the instructions on the product label!

Don’t Skip The Night Cream!

    Nighty Night Fact No.1: The cotton pillowcases suck all the moisture from your skin, leaving it dry, flaky and increase the appearance of sleep lines and wrinkles.

    Nighty Night Face No. 2: The skin regenerates three times faster at night than during the day. The cellular renovation activity reaches its peak around between 2:00-4:00am. During that time, the skin recuperates more effectively.

Due to these two facts, it is highly important to provide your skin with the proper combination of moisture and anti-aging properties found in a good quality night cream – not only it boosts up the natural high reparative activity, but it will also result in a soft and supple facial skin when you wake up in the morning, and thus making it more believable that you had a genuine good night sleep.

Pamper Your Hands And Feet

After being enclosed in tight, close shoes all day long, your feet might feel super dry, or worse – swollen and aching. Wash them both with warm water and Peeling Soap, pat them dry and gently rub in a good foot cream. if you have cracked feet, applying a specialty foot cream and covering both feet with sock for the rest of the night will guarantee great results in the morning.
As to your hands, just like your face, they are as exposed to the dirt, air-pollution and extreme weather conditions. Not only that, they are constantly active throughout the day. Just like your feet, they deserve to be pampered. Simply put a decent amount of a good hands and nails creambefore you hit the sack. If the weather is cold, you might want to use cotton gloves during the night – you’re guaranteed to wake up with the softest hands in the morning.

That’s it! You’re all set and ready to go to bed. Have a fabulous night and the sweetest dreams.
