The biggest (and brightest) skin care trend of 2018 is glowing, radiant skin. Skin-care enthusiasts are seeking healthy, brighter skin that is free of blemishes and is Instagram ready.
The biggest factor in glowing skin? Sleep. When we sleep, our skin turns over new cells. So getting a good night’s rest is the first step in getting that glow. But the products you put on your face before you sleep are equally important.
Every nighttime skincare routine should start with cleansing. Throughout the day, dirt accumulates on your skin from the environment. Make sure you remove any makeup with something like micellar water, and then move on to a deep cleanse. The Sunday Riley Ceramic Slip Cleanser is gentle but powerful. You should also incorporate some acids into your routine a few times a week, like the Sunday Riley Good Genes treatment. Acids help prevent fine lines, acne, and wrinkles.
After cleansing, it’s good to increase circulation. Give your face a massage with a jade roller. Jade rollers help with inflammation, circulation, and they feel wonderful. It’s a good idea to keep your jade roller in the fridge, that way it feels cool and relaxing against your skin. Not only will a face massage from a jade roller make your skin glow, it will also release endorphins and improve your mood.
When we are mentally stressed or anxious, it tends to show up on our skin, often in the form of acne. Try to keep your stress levels low by taking an epsom salt bath before bed. Epsom salts reduce stress and inflammation, and there’s nothing more relaxing than a warm bath. You can also reduce acne with the Sunday Riley Saturn Sulfur Acne Treatment Mask.
What you sleep on is almost just as important as the products you put on your skin. Silk pillowcases absorb less product, like moisturizer or serum, than cotton pillowcases do, meaning that more of the product will stay on your skin. Also, consistently getting a good night’s sleep means that you’ll look younger, and have glowing, brighter skin. Make sure you have a comfortable mattress to ensure a restful night.
