Benefits of Nighttime Skincare

Ever wondered why it’s called ‘beauty sleep’?

Our skin is in its most regenerative state while we sleep. During the day, skin focuses on protecting us from pollution and environmental aggressors, while at night, it switches into ‘recovery mode’.

This phase before we head to sleep means that not only is DNA repair boosted, but your skin is able to absorb skincare products more effectively, making it the optimal time for a pm skincare routine.

Night Skincare Routine Steps

So, you may be wondering what your night skincare routine should be. Here are the key steps:

Follow these night skincare routine steps each evening before you go to bed to help promote soft, supple skin that’s clean, hydrated and refreshed after a long day.

Step 1 – Remove Your Makeup

First up, it’s time to remove that makeup. Now, there’s no excuse for going to bed with makeup still on your face, no matter how tired you are! It can lead to blocked pores, blemishes and it won’t leave your skin happy at all.

Start your night skincare routine with one of our trusty micellar waters. Available in three ingredient-enriched formulas, including pore refining Niacinamide, brightening Vitamin C and soothing Aloe Vera, these micellar waters are designed to melt away makeup for a refreshing initial evening cleanse.

How to use: Apply the micellar water to a reusable cotton pad and swipe over the entire face to remove your makeup.

Step 2 – Cleanse Your Skin

Double cleansing is often recommended as part of an evening skincare routine as it helps to work more deeply and rid the skin of any impurities it’s accumulated during the day.

The Revolution Skincare Overnight Nourishing Cleansing Oil is the perfect nighttime cleanser, making it an excellent addition to your pm skincare routine.

Not only does it contain a subtle scent of relaxing lavender, but it’s also enriched with Evening Primrose Oil which is rich in fatty acids for deep moisturization and repair, enhancing your skin’s natural restorative abilities.

How to use: Massage a few pumps of product into dry skin before adding a splash of water to form a milky texture. Rinse thoroughly with warm water.

Step 3 – Exfoliate Skin (Twice a Week)

If skin is feeling a little congested, go in with an exfoliating peeling solution, such as the Revolution Skincare Multi Acid Peeling Solution.

This solution contains 30% AHA and 1.5% BHA (Salicylic Acid), combining a blend of Lactic Acid, Glycolic Acid, and Fruit Acids from Bilberry, Blueberry, Super Maple, Orange, and Lemon. It helps exfoliate away dead skin cells to reveal brightened, smoother skin.

How to use: No more than twice a week, apply to dry, clean skin, avoiding the eye area, and leave on for no more than 10 minutes. Rinse thoroughly with warm water and be sure to use SPF the following day as this treatment can leave skin more sensitive to sun damage.

Step 4 – Tone Skin

Toner is the next step in your nighttime face routine. Toning is often an overlooked step in skincare regimes, but believe us when we say, toning in the evening can work wonders on your skin while you sleep.

Depending on the toner you use, it can help refine pores, boost hydration or smooth skin texture. Here are some of our favorite toners to help target whatever your skin concern:

Step 5 – Apply a Serum

Once skin is clean and toned, it’s time to incorporate a serum into your pm skincare routine.

At this stage, you can use your choice of targeted serum to help combat those skin concerns, or, choose an evening serum designed specifically to help boost skin at night.

The Revolution Skincare Night Restore Oil is designed to give skin an overnight pamper with its radiance boosting formula containing Squalene, Evening Primrose Oil, and Lavender Oil. It helps target uneven skin texture and leaves skin feeling calm and ready for sleep.

How to use: Apply a few drops to the face, taking time to massage it into skin.

Step 6 – Moisturize with Night Cream

When it comes to your moisturizing step, we recommend applying a hydrating sleep mask to help restore some of the hydration lost during the day.

We herald the Revolution Skincare Overnight Soothing Sleeping Mask as the perfect partner for deep sleep.

Enriched with a skin-loving blend of Vitamins E and B5 and Grapeseed Oil, this nighttime face mask provides lightweight hydration that’s suited to all skin types. It also contains Colloidal Oatmeal to help soothe irritation and create a protective barrier, while the Glycerin and Sodium Hyaluronate aims to restore skin’s moisture levels.

How to use: Gently massage a generous amount of the night cream into the skin.

Step 7 – Finish with Eye Cream

Eye cream is an essential final step of your nighttime skincare routine, particularly if you struggle with dark circles that leave you looking more tired that you really are.

The Revolution Skincare Overnight Rejuvenating Eye Cream offers a nourishing formula combining the smoothing properties of Shea Butter and Vitamins A and E that seek to protect this delicate area of skin.

How to use: Smooth a few dots of product into the contours of your eyes.
