Skincare while you sleep
Did you know that your skin cells actually restore faster at night? Your body takes advantage of your downtime to give a slight boost to your maintenance schedule, regenerating skin cells among other things.
However, there are a few things you can do to help, rather than hinder, this natural skin care process.
Drink up! Your skin needs to be moist and hydrated to regenerate properly. Drink plenty of water throughout the day.
Sleep on your back. You may have noticed more wrinkles in the evening than in the morning. Throughout the day, gravity has an effect on your skin, pulling it down ever so slightly. Lying on your back means gravity is working for you instead of against you, resetting your skin for the next day.
Apply moisturiser. Lock in your skin’s moisture, particularly if you’ve just had a bath or shower before bed. As you’re going to sleep, you can choose a slightly richer or heavier face cream than you might use during the day, as it doesn’t have to coexist with makeup or your social life!
Any anti-ageing skin care products you use may also be slightly more effective at night, as sunlight can impede the active anti-ageing ingredients. So you might get better results from the same products when applied at night.
This is why certain skincare products are designed specifically for night time use, such as the ARTISTRY™ Intensive Skincare Anti-wrinkle Firming Serum. This can boost your natural collagen production by 300%*, targeting those pesky fine lines and wrinkles as well as improving the firmness of your skin.
Of course, it takes more than one night to achieve the best results. ARTISTRY’s Intensive 14 Night Restore Program is a quarterly deep repair treatment that penetrates down to the deepest layers of your skin.
Why waste those night hours? While you’re sleeping, your skin could be working hard to regenerate and restore itself into a fresher, more youthful you.
