A Nightly Skin Care Guide to Healthy, Clear Skin

Skincare Guide

Are you constantly confused about what to do for skincare? One of the easiest things recommended by experts is getting a good night’s sleep. If you want additional tips to get clear skin, then this is for you. Taking stellar advice from dermatologists Lily Talakoub and Kenneth Howe along with celebrity facialist Joanna Vargas, we bring to you the secrets to getting healthy, glowing skin overnight.

Keep it Clean

The very basics of skin care is thoroughly cleansed skin. Experts advise washing your face with a cream-to-oil cleanser. While exfoliating cleansers go too far and leave the skin dry, removing its natural barrier, oil-based or cream-to-oil cleansers lend a gentler and more nurturing hand to leave your skin with a glow. Dr. Talakoub suggests the Comfort Zone Remedy Cream to Oil Cleanser.

Mask Up

Mask Up

Sheet masks are highly effective in hydrating skin. So, Dr. Howe suggests layering up with his favorite SK-II Facial Treatment Mask, which contains pitera, before you go on with your usual skincare routine. Pitera, having an effect similar to the natural moisturizing factors of our skin, gives it a dewy look as it enables our skin to better hold on to moisture.

Ransack Your Kitchen

Daily use materials like apple cider vinegar can come in handy while taking care of your skin. This kitchen essential is wonderful as it gently exfoliates skin making it a fit solution – even for people with sensitive and breakout-prone skin. It can not only aid in cleansing but also helps reduce and heal breakouts by balancing the skin. Vargas recommends using it as a toner and applying it with a cotton round.

Consider Oils

Consider Oils

While you may be skeptical about the ongoing trend of using facial oils, Talakoub clears your doubts and nudges you toward them. Citing their ability to protect the outer layer of the skin and provide rich antioxidants to prevent DNA damage, Talakoub also goes on to recommend her favorites. These include argan oil, sunflower oil, and marula oil. To achieve the best results, she recommends applying a non-comedogenic oil before your night cream.

Load Up on Water

Vargas recommends paying attention to dehydration in the skin. It can make the skin look red, inflamed, irritated, wrinkled, and lined. Even one of these symptoms can mean that your skin is dehydrated. Other than drinking water, other ways to resolve dehydration are green juices, topical serums, plant oils, and masks. You can always track water intake and maintain a goal of drinking two or three 32-oz bottles every day.
