Did you just wish your Christmas & New Year party lasted longer? While it’s all fun, the next morning your skin feels all dull and dehydrated, didn’t it? Well, figuring out what kind of skincare routine works the best can be a tricky business. And if you thought your AM and PM skincare routine is the same honey, you’re mistaken!
Some of us even make the cardinal skin of going to the bed without removing our makeup. On a day-to-day basis, our skin gets exposed to dirt, grime and even produces excess sebum that ends up clogging the pores. Hence, it’s essential to do your night or PM skincare regime to keep your skin healthy, clean, and glowing. So, allow us to shed some light on your nighttime skincare routine.
Importance & Benefits of Night Skincare Routine
There’s a dearth to this whole concept that beauty sleep is the best when it comes to glowing skin. While you’re busy dreaming, our skin repairs itself. Let’s take you through a few reasons why our nighttime skincare routine is a MUST.
- Our skin is busy repairing and actively growing new skin cells while we’re sleeping.
- The products absorb better during the night, thus it makes your skin all plump and glowy in the morning.
- Our skin produces less sebum, so moisturizing skin at night will help you to reduce transepidermal water loss and keep the skin hydrated.
- When we clean our skin at night, it helps to prevent clogged pores and reduce the occurrence of pimples, acne, whiteheads, and blackheads.
- There’s no chance of sunrays messing up your skin, hence it means one can safely invest inactive ingredients in your nightmare regime.
Steps For Your Night Skincare Routine
Now that you’re enlightened on why following a night skincare routine can be the best gift for your skin, team Earth Rhythm is here to help you with a simple nighttime skincare regime.
Step 1: Double Cleansing
Your first step is to remove your makeup so that it doesn’t clog your pores without irritating your skin. Invest in a Gel To Milk Cleanser-Pink Pomelo that will help you to get rid of heavy makeup, sunscreen, dirt, foundation, and other impurities.

Through double cleansing, it will ensure that your skin absorbs other products properly.
Step 2: Toning
Once you have washed your face, one must ensure that the pH balance is on track, so don’t forget to tone up your skin. Invest in an alcohol-free toner, infused with skincare-loving ingredients that help to maintain your skin’s natural barrier. Spritz some toner on your face and gently pat it to hydrate your skin. This will avoid dehydration while prepping you up for the next steps of skincare.
