Moisturize before going to bed



Moisturizers are designed to reduce water loss from the epidermis (the outermost layer of the skin). In addition to preventing further dryness, emollients contained in moisturizing products provide a barrier against pollutants and dirt, improve the texture and give a smoother appearance to your skin. A simple and easy way to restore daily hydration is to apply a suitable nighttime cream just before going to bed. Make sure you get enough rest each night - sleep is essential for your body to rejuvenate and revitalize.

As well, it’s the ideal time to nourish your skin with fortifying ingredients such as aloe, vitamin B3 and antioxidants (vitamins A, C and E, green tea extract and other botanicals). This crucial restful phase provides the perfect opportunity to allow your skin to absorb the active ingredients - you may be resting, but your skin is still hard at work!
