3 Night-Time Skincare Regimes for Glowing Skin

With the right night-time routine, you’ll wake up with glowing skin every morning.



Regardless of your skin type, proper night-time care is essential to maintaining smooth, flawless and radiant skin. With night-time a period for your body’s renewal, it is the perfect time to aid your skin with the right beauty products to ensure regeneration and a youthful-looking complexion. This is all the more important after a day of exposure to harmful environmental stressors, from dirt to pollution and UV rays.

Your regime should include several steps, from removing your makeup and giving your face a good wash, through to exfoliation and hydration. These steps are essential to ensure your skin is clean and can absorb skincare, as well as to replenish lost moisture. We’ve scoured the internet for the best night-time skincare products to get your skin looking tip-top, according to your skin type. Read on to discover the way to flawless skin.

IF YOU HAVE… DRY SKIN

STEP 1: Double cleanse

If you suffer from dry, flaky skin, start with an oil-based makeup remover. This will remove all traces of makeup while not stripping the skin of further moisture. Follow this with a second cleanse using a creamy facewash to ensure your skin in squeaky clean. Avoid products with SLS (that makes it foamy) as this will strip your skin and leave it feeling parched.

STEP 2: Exfoliate

While you should only exfoliate once or twice a week, it’s essential for unclogging pores and ensuring a smooth canvas for your makeup. Use either a physical exfoliator like a scrub, mechanical exfoliator like brush or muslin cloth, or a chemical exfoliator that features enzymes or acids.

STEP 3: Apply a serum

A serum is your skin’s superhero – it treats whatever issue you have; in this case, dryness. Avoid perfumed serums that can dry out skin and look for ones with hyaluronic acid instead.

STEP 4: Moisturise

A quality moisturiser helps seal in moisture and protect your skin. This is all the more important as the weather starts cooling down and the air gets drier. Night creams tend to be heavier than day ones, which is fine considering that you won’t be applying anything on top.

IF YOU HAVE… COMBINATION SKIN

IF YOU HAVE… OILY SKIN

Oily skin can be among some of the hardest control, with many beauty products adding to, rather than solving the concern. Lightweight products are crucial, but of course, they should be gentle on the skin to avoid drying it out.

STEP 1: Double cleanse

Just because your skin is oily, doesn’t mean you should strip it clean with a harsh cleanser. Remove makeup first before going in with a clay cleaner, that will help keep oil at bay.

STEP 2: Exfoliate

Key to dealing with oily skin is to not fuss it too much. Too many products and ingredients will only overstimulate your skin into producing even more oil. Stick to a gentle multitasking exfoliator once or twice a week.

STEP 3: Apply a serum

Oily skin could lead to pesky breakouts. Sort them out with a serum every night – look for one with salicylic acid to help clear out pores.

STEP 4: Moisturise

Don’t ever skip this step, even if you think your face doesn’t need to be moisturised – remember, just because you have oily skin, doesn’t mean you have moisturised skin, as the skin’s moisture content comes from water, not oil. Keep your night cream light – look for a gel – and don’t layer on too many products. You can also use a day cream if you find a night one to heavy.
