At the end of a long day, it’s easy to revert to the simple make up wipe before going to bed. However, most drug-store makeup wipes will irritate and dry out your skin by disrupting the PH of your skin with overly strong fragrances and harsh chemicals. In addition to this, rubbing makeup wipes across your face, particularly in delicate areas such as the under eyes can fast-track your way to wrinkles and fine lines. When doing your night-time routine, swap out the trendy makeup wipe with these simple steps and products from Medik8, and watch your skin rejuvenate and glow.
Starting off your night-time skin-care regime, we can start by removing makeup with the Medik8 Micellar Cleanser. This is great on gentle areas such as your lip and under-eye area as it avoids tugging at the skin. Its ingredients are also particularly effective at breaking down long-wearing lipsticks, eyeshadows, and mascaras while chamomile and vitamin B5 hydrate the skin to leave your complexion soft and glowing.
Following on from this, it’s time to remove any excess dirt and makeup from the skin to prevent clogging of pores and acne. With a gentle rosemary infusion, the Medik8 gentle foaming cleanser will actively work to reverse the radical damage that leads to premature aging of the skin. Its lightweight formula is hydrating and refreshing, making it perfect for those with extra sensitive skin.
Next, it’s time for your blemish control! It’s important to have your skin clean to avoid any build-up of oils, dirt’s and impurities that may lead to a breakout.
Medik8’s blemish control pads use salicylic acid to dissolve oil and dirt from deep within the pore to purify your complexion. By using an alcohol free formula, you’re ensured not to dry out your skin and preserve the natural moisture of your skin in the process. Also don’t forget that to control breakouts, have lots of water before bed and make sure you’re regularly changing your pillow cases to remove any dirt being in contact with your skin while you sleep!
After a long day of wearing makeup and exposing your skin to weathering and free radicals, it’s important to give your skin all of the nutrients it needs in order to repair and restore. Medik 8’s advanced night restore rejuvenating cellular repair cream uses antioxidants such as dragon fruit extract, saskatoon berry and restoring peptides to encourage cell repair, plump and hydrate the skin. Your skin will look smooth, supple and younger by the time you wake up!
Lastly, end your skincare routine by pairing your moisturiser with a potent and effective eye cream. We don’t always get the good night’s sleep that we need, so it’s important to reverse the damage on our under eyes and keep them looking bright and free of fine lines. The advanced night eye cream is rich, fast-absorbing and infused with an array of powerful antioxidants to hydrate and smooth the skin, using dragon fruit and sasktatoon berry to neutralise skin-damage, matrixyl 3000 to firm the eye contours, and caffeine and hesperidin to boost circulation around dark circles.
