Healthy skin is a goal that everyone should strive to achieve. The skin is the
largest organ of the body and serves to protect the body from injury while
also providing a beautiful cover. Skin does require regular maintenance in
order to keep it beautiful and attractive.

Is Moisturizing Important?

Is Moisturizing Important?

One part of a healthy skin regimen is moisturizing. Regardless of skin type,
you need some degree of moisturizer to help it remain pliable and soft.
Moisturizers also serve to add an additional layer of protection to the skin
while also helping skin to regenerate and fight against disease, rashes, or
other problems. Underneath the skin, moisturizers act to help it stay
resilient.

Night Time Skin Care

Night Time Skin Care

Sleep is an important part of your body’s regenerative process. All organs
turn to a state of rest in some form. Even your skin transitions to a state of
rest while you sleep. This allows the body to regenerate quicker and
recuperate from the day’s activities. Your skin is exposed to many factors
throughout the day that could damage or deteriorate the skin. These
factors include sun, wind, dust, dirt, chemicals, smoke, and even some
types of make-up or cosmetic products. An overnight skin care ritual can
help your skin to stay beautiful and help the damaged skin to regain its
youth.

Ways to Start an Overnight Skin Care Routine

1) Identify your specific skin type in order to better select products
that will work to help your skin. The following are some general skin
types, but please note that you may be a unique combination of
several:

 Dry skin: A tight feeling and flakes are two very common traits
for dry skin. You may also notice redness, itchiness, bumps,
and smaller skin pores. Often, dry skin is a sign of dehydration
or lack of proper nutrition, but sometimes it is simply
genetics.
 Oily skin: The shiny look of oily skin is pretty easy to spot.
When you touch the skin, you notice oil or moisture. Oily skin
typically has larger skin pores and tends to have more acne or
blemishes.
 Normal skin: A few lucky people have normal skin, which is
smooth and has normal or small skin pores. Occasionally, even
normal skin will get blemishes or rashes.
 Combination skin: Around the face and on other parts of the
body, your skin can vary. The elbows and knees, for example,
may have dry skin. However, the arms, neck, or certain parts
of the face may have oily skin. Every person can have some
degree of combination skin because parts of skin are exposed
to the elements in different ways. Your forehead may have
more sweat glands and could have oily skin, while your nose
may have dry skin.
 Sensitive skin: This skin type can react adversely to certain
chemicals, oils, or elements. Use caution when selecting
products for sensitive skin so that you can avoid rashes,
swelling, or harsh reactions.
2) Cleansing your skin: The first step in your overnight skin care ritual
should be to clean your skin. Select a cleanser that is safe for your
skin type. You may also choose to use an exfoliating wash, but this
should only be used once or twice a week. Follow the instructions
carefully to properly clean your skin.
3) Inspect your skin: Get to know your skin by looking at it in a bright
light. Avoid picking or scratching at your skin because you can cause
more damage or infect the area. Do not squeeze or pop blemishes.
4) Toners or astringents: Depending on your skin type, you may choose
to use a toner or astringent before moisturizing. This helps to deep
clean the skin and open up the pores.
5) Rinse: Use a clean cloth and cool water to rinse your skin and
prepare it for the moisturizer.
6) Moisturize: Select a moisturizer to use overnight. Even oily skin
should have some type of moisturizer in order to help it regenerate
and stabilize. Some people choose to use different moisturizers
around the eyes to help reduce fine lines or wrinkles. The
moisturizer will help to relax your skin at night and help in the
rejuvenation process.
Your skin is important, so be sure to treat it right with proper skin care.
