Nighttime Skin Care Routine


It’s so tempting to crawl into bed without taking off your makeup or washing your face, but don’t do it. Skipping proper skin care at night can result in dull skin and breakouts. Taking a few minutes to care for your face each night will help you achieve a healthier, more youthful glow.

Taking care of your skin doesn’t have to be expensive or time-consuming—you just need to choose the right products.

Try this simple routine. It takes less than five minutes, and your skin will thank you for it in the morning.

Cleanse: Hot water may feel soothing, but it dries your skin. Instead use lukewarm water and a washcloth. (Use a clean washcloth each day to prevent the spread of bacteria.) Be sure to remove all traces of makeup, which can clog pores and irritate eyes.

Exfoliate: Everyone should use an exfoliant on their face at night. Exfoliants remove dead skin, making your skin look brighter and lines less obvious. Skip grainy scrubs (they irritate skin) and look for alpha hydroxy acid if you have normal to dry skin and beta hydroxy acid if your skin is oily. This is the essential antiaging step in the routine; it needs to be done nightly for best results. If you have sensitive skin, try exfoliating every other day.

Moisturize: Protect and soften skin by using a moisturizer. Use the lightest one possible for your skin type to add just enough moisture without weighing skin down. Look for one with an antioxidant, which helps skin repair itself.

Avon carries a variety of Cleansers, Exfoliates and Moisturizers!!

  2. Do you know of any exfoliant that is easy on the skin? My skin is not allergic to anything but it gets irritated with everything I've tried (including baby lotion)...will be using this routine for sure!

  3. There are a myriad of products geared towards skin care, protecting it from harmful elements while maintaining its youthful glow. We usually see celebrities who seem to age gracefully, and they credit their "secret" to faithful skin pampering. Other personalities go on and go through medical means such as facelift in conjunction to natural anti-aging products.
