A better night starts with treating your skin right. And we’re here to help.

There’s nothing better than a good skincare routine to help unwind from the day. But pampering your skin doesn’t just feel good. Because your cells regenerate while you sleep, taking care of them beforehand is actually really good for helping you maintain a youthful glow.  

So go ahead, pamper away. But before you do, we have thoughts. Lots of them. 

Keep it simple. 

There’s a fairly large gap between the number of skincare products one has crammed in their bathroom drawers vs the number of skin care products one actually needs. A nightly skin care routine doesn’t have to be complicated. It just has to be effective. Don’t feel like you need to go out and buy the latest and greatest. Stick with the tried and true. Your skin look and feel healthier, and your wallet will be happier. 

Step 1: remove your makeup. 

This sounds like a no-brainer, but you’d be surprised. Please, please if you don’t remove your makeup before slathering on your skin care products (we know you’re out there), start doing it right now. In order for your skin to absorb all the good ingredients, nothing should get in the way. And that means the makeup you’ve been wearing all day. 

Step 2: use a gentle cleanser. 

Now you’re going to want to use a cleanser that removes the excess dirt from your skin without stripping away essential oils. Apply your cleanser on dry skin and then simply rinse.

TrueScience® Pro Tip:

Start with warm water in order to eliminate the surface impurities and old skin cells. Apply TrueScience® Facial Cleanser, and then wash your face a second time with cold water. This delivers a much deeper clean into your pores and removes any impurities. 

Step 3: treat your eyes right. 

Since eye creams are the lightest, start here first by applying a small amount to the delicate skin under your eyes. 

TrueScience® Pro Tip:

Apply just the right amount of TrueScience® Eye Serum to firm the skin, and diminish the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and puffiness. Start with a pea-sized amount on the back of your hand and then rub it gently around the orbital bone and eyelid. 

Step 4: hydrate the right way. 

You put your skin through a lot every day. The weather and your day-to-day can take a lot out of it. That means night time is your chance to put some moisture back in. First, by a high quality lotion or toner. Secondly, don’t slather it all over your face. Instead, spread a bit into your palms and lightly spread a small amount onto your face. If you overdo this, your face will feel like a greasy mess in the morning. 

TrueScience® Pro Tip:

After cleaning your skin, pour approximately one teaspoon of TrueScience® Perfecting Lotion into your palm and gently apply it to your face, neck and décolletage. What makes this product so amazing is that it’s ethanol free and it’s designed to tone your skin while protecting it at the same time. 

Step 5: dial in your treatment. 

Because time machines don’t exist (yet), applying a specialized treatment to your face as the finishing touch to your bedtime can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while you sleep. Effective treatments can tend to be expensive, so make sure you get one that works. 

TrueScience® Pro Tip:

TrueScience® Anti-Aging Cream works wonders while you sleep because it applies both moisture and protection. The Nrf2 technologies promote younger looking skin by reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and crow’s feet. Don’t be afraid to apply a lot of it to your skin before you sleep. You’ll be happy you did. Trust us. 

Congratulations. You now have a bedtime routine that will leave your skin feeling healthier and looking younger. Plus, you’ll be treating yourself right. Just remember, that your skin is different from anyone else’s. Find a nighttime routine that works for you. And then close your eyes and enjoy. You’ve earned it.
