When you’re tired and sleepy, it can be hard commit to a full night time skin care routine. However, a nightly skin care routine is very important for keeping your skin barriers and skin microbiome healthy and vibrant. A natural night time skin care routine in parallel to your daily skincare routine helps keep wrinkles away and keeps your skin looking young and healthy. It’s never too late to start caring for your skin.
Your skin works hard at night to regenerate all the barriers when you are sleeping. That’s why it is the best time to use skin care products that especially address specific skin concerns like dryness, oiliness, dehydration, fine lines and wrinkles, and uneven tone.
What should your nighttime skin care routine be?
It’s crucial to remove your makeup and wash away daily impurities from your face at the end of each day. Excess oil, daily pollutants, and makeup can build up on the surface of your skin and can lead to clogged pores, unbalanced skin microbiome functions, more oil, inflammation and irritation.
Another important point is to always be sure to moisturize your skin after you cleanse. This will help balance the moisture so your skin will not dry out leaving it looking dull and in the long run irritated.

How to establish a nighttime skin care routine for oily skin?
Oily skin is one of the most common skin concerns whether you are 20 or over 20 years old. It challenges our everyday appearance with overly shiny complexion and sudden acne breakouts.
The good news is the right skin care routine and products can help you to turn all this into a less of a problem.
The result: a simple four-step routine you can use in the morning and evening to keep your skin healthier, happier and shine-free.
1. Gentle Cleanse in the AM and PM
The most important step of any skin care routine is cleansing while respecting the skin barriers and skin microbiome. If your skin is more on the oily side, you can tolerate more cleansing compared to a very dry complexion. However, choosing the right cleanser is critical and please do not wash your face with soap. Soap has a pH around 10-11 and will strip all the good oils from your face making it more reactive and more inclined to produce more oil.
Even though your skin may feel still clean from the night before, your skin is actually busy during the night shedding skin cells, actively working on the renewal and producing oils. That’s why washing with a gentle non-stripping cleanser like Gentle Gardenia Anti-Pollution Gel Cleanser is recommended. You can also mix a dollop of the Honeyactive Beauty Mask with this cleanser to create your own gentle exfoliating cleanser. This is going to really help clear away extra oil and dead skin cells to prevent buildup in the pores. If you like you can add, gentle calming rose water as a spray toner.
2. Hydrate in the a.m. and p.m.
Hydrating your skin with a moisturizer or a serum is a very important step if you have oily skin. General belief that if you have oily skin, you should not moisturize is completely wrong. As you do not moisturize your skin, the skin tries to compensate by producing more oil trying to compensate for the transepidermal water loss.
All skin types need moisturizer. If you have oily skin, you need a moisturizer and need to be a little more careful when selecting it. Look for a moisturizer that is more lightweight, free of oils, water-based formulas. Micro Algae Immun-B3 Serum with its light, oil- free and niacinamide including formula is an excellent one for oily complexions. And all needed is one drop.
