Best Practices for Nighttime Beauty
When it comes to beauty, a lot of what keeps our skin good and glowing is not what we do to our face during the day but how we nourish it at night.
When it comes to beauty, a lot of what keeps our skin good and glowing is not what we do to our face during the day but how we nourish it at night. Believe me, your nighttime routine can make all the difference when it comes to the health of your skin. Makeup, skin care products, the sun, and other environmental factors play a huge role in the way your skin looks and behaves. Not only that, but we all have our own genes and sensitivities as well. Things can get a little tricky when trying to figure out how to best care for your hair and your skin.
First things first, develop a nighttime routine that works for you.
If it’s not easy, trust me it won’t last for long. All it takes is one night for it all to unravel. There will come a day when you are way too tired to complete steps one through eight in your skincare routine and steps one through four in your hair care routine. Do yourself a favor and stick to a simple routine that nourishes both, your hair and your skin.
Don’t forget the moisturizer!
...For your skin or your hair. After you cleanse and tone your face, apply a moisturizer fit for your skin type. While you’re at it if you need to apply a leave-in conditioner to your hair before you style it for the night. You’ll wake up with softer more manageable hair and soft, glowing!
Get your beauty rest.
Nothing is worse than waking up after terrible sleep and having to face a day of chores, work, and all of the other responsibilities that come along with adulting. Getting a good amount of sleep is about more than you think. Your body needs time for cell turnover and other metabolic processes that we need in order for our body to run efficiently.
These are some of the simple tips that are often overlooked when it comes to building a nighttime routine that works for you. The simpler you make it, the better and the more likely you are to stick with it. You’ll be surprised to see how these little practices make a huge difference in the health of your hair and skin.
