After a busy day or a long commute, you may be tempted to just fall into bed, but we suggest you resist the temptation… for your beauty's sake!
Make bedtime beauty a relaxing, pampering ritual and wake up to a more beautiful you.
There's a reason they call it beauty sleep… Nighttime is the best time to renew, replenish and repair your skin, because when skin is at rest, it is the most receptive to skin care benefits.
Wash away the day
Don't even think about going to bed until your makeup has been removed and your face properly cleansed. When you leave makeup on, it can clog and enlarge your pores, cause breakout and prematurely age your skin.
Use a gentle, yet effective makeup remover to eliminate mascara, liner and shadows. An oil-based formula for face and eyes can handle even stubborn waterproof mascara without tugging or pulling. Use a cotton pad to apply and lift the makeup from your face. Then follow with a gentle facial cleaner.
Your evening dose of Vitamin A
As we age, skin produces less collagen, which keeps it firm and youthful looking. To stimulate collagen production, smooth fine lines and reduce the appearance of pores, apply Vitamin A to your skin every night, either in the form of a prescription or over-the-counter retinoid cream. Retinoids can also help lighten brown spots.
Retinoid can be irritating to skin, as it stimulates sloughing and renewal. To counteract this and replenish your skin, apply a comforting cream or, better yet, an overnight mask to cradle your skin in moisture and minerals, plumping your complexion so that you wake up to a fresher, younger-looking face!
For example, VICHY Aqualia Thermal Night Spa is the 1st replenishing and soothing spa sleeping mask that offers power beauty transformation, thanks to deep hydration. It's perfect for all skin types, even sensitive skin! Its refreshing gel-cream formula is creamy, yet light to envelop your skin in velvety softness that is never greasy or sticky.
How to plump your skin overnight:
- Apply a thick layer of the facial mask to face and neck.
- Relax and let it infuse your skin for 10 to 15 minutes.
- Gently massage any excess into your skin.
- Place your thumbs on your temples and your ring fingers in between your eyes. Apply a relaxing pressure.
Now, that your skin is relaxed, VICHY's mineral-rich water, concentrated in hyaluronic acid and patented AquabiorylTM will go to work to replenish and smooth skin overnight!
