I’ve heard some skin care experts say that the time of day you choose to do your skin care regiment is insignificant, it makes no difference. I HIGHLY disagree with this, partly from research, but mostly from personal experience. Let me share with you a little bit about my skin type. I have had eczema ever since I can remember. When I was a child it was terrible, but now I usually only get small breakouts at the beginning of the season’s change. I also have very sensitive skin, and for a long time I couldn’t use many store brand soaps, and I could never wear perfume. So I started caring for my skin at night out of convenience at first, but over time I really began to see a difference in my skin’s health by doing my beauty regiment at night, versus during the day.
Night time, or right before you go to sleep is the best time to do your skin care regiment for many reasons. In the morning you’re sweating, you’re wearing makeup, you’re moving around, you may even be around smoke, or having a cigarette yourself. All these factors take away from your skins ability to replenish itself during the day.
Night is a much better time to moisturize and exfoliate because it is more likely that things like pollution, sweat, and makeup won’t be effecting your skin at this time and it will really have time to rest. Your skin will have an opportunity to take full advantages of the products your using. Here are some great products to invest in for your night time regiment:
SkinPhD’s Night time replenishing cream with marula oil, shea butter and jojoba.
SkinPhD AHA Amidroxy exfoliator made from the natural fruit acids. This was also featured on the Dr. Oz Show.
