All right, ladies and gentlemen, we all know that as we make a few more rotations around the sun, our skin tends to display those years of experience. While smile lines around our eyes and laugh lines defining our cheeks certainly give us character, there's no shame in aging gracefully. No one here is saying you have to fight aging, because we know every day of our time in this life is a precious gift, but we might as well look our best while we’re here!
These youth-enhancing skincare products will help restore, replenish and support your skin by keeping you hydrated and moisturized all night long while also helping reduce fine lines, wrinkles, age spots and uneven skin tones or discoloration. Paired with a supporting cast of daytime products, the benefits of these nighttime skin care steps will help you to wake up looking well rested and refreshed.
Vitamin C is a natural lightening and brightening agent that will help even out your skin tone and lighten dark spots or sun damage that may become visible as you get older. Vitamin C can cause sensitivity to sunlight or could be too harsh for sensitive skin, so be sure to limit sun exposure and wear sunblock if you’re using this product. (If you have rosacea or any other skin conditions that have an inflammatory response, you should avoid vitamin C in your skin care products).
If you once had perfect skin, but now you're started to see the deep lines of time etching their way onto your face, this serum will help plump and firm your skin by enhancing the moisture in your skin below the surface. After cleansing, a few drops smoothed in will help reduce the appearance of those tiny lines around your eyes and improve the overall elasticity of your skin.
A serum, so matter how wonderful, is not a moisturizer. To truly replenish the moisture that escapes from your skin every day you need to use an intensely hydrating but not heavy night cream. Again, hyaluronic acid is your friend, because it encourages you skin to attract and hold on to increased levels of moisture. Hydrated skin is youthful-looking skin.
Sometimes you need to get more aggressive with your moisturizer. If you’re working more, drinking less water, in the sun more, or needing to combat the cold dryness of the acrid winter air, a heavier nighttime cream is in order. This repair cream with Q10 is packed with antioxidants that will support your skin and reduce the damaging effects of environmental exposures.
Of course, you can’t slow the signs of aging if you neglect the delicate skin around your eyes. Whether it’s fine lines just beginning or long-term laugh lines that carry with them the memories of a thousand happy moments, using a natural based eye cream with safe moisturizing ingredients like jojoba oil will turn back the hands of time just a bit, at least appearance wise. Using it sparingly but regularly to improve the elasticity of the tissue around your eyes and reduce the appearance of wrinkles as you sleep.
When it’s time to bring out the big guns, using a sheet mask with retinol, once a week, is definitely going to help restore that youthful look to your face. Retinol stimulates the production of collagen, which is essential to skin elasticity and firmness. A 20-minute session with one of these before bed is all you need to give your skin that extra boost. But don’t rinse it off! Let the serum from the sheet mask do its thing all night
To support the work you do to rejuvenate and repair your skin every night, be sure you’re protecting your skin and enhancing the effects with the right daytime products. Add these three products to your daytime routine to retain moisture and protect your skin from further damage.
