Do you know the ideal beauty regimen for your age?
While you’re dreaming and snoozing away, the skin is in it’s prime state to fight against aging and repair itself. To awake refreshed with beautiful skin it is imperative to adopt a night care reflex. But when should you begin? And what is the ideal regimen? Our experts broke it down by age to help you create an effective skincare ritual.
At 20 years old, the late nights of a careless youth can show dark circles and a grey complexion.
Before bed, use a moisturizing cream with a light texture like Laboratoires Surface-Paris Flawless Complexion Moisturizing Cream to avoid suffocating the skin or causing breakouts. In your 20s you can begin an eye cream as this area dehydrates even more at night.
At 30, between stress and fatigue, the skin needs a boost to rehydrate and regenerate.
The solution for detoxifying and repulping your skin is a cocktail of hyaluronic acid, antioxidants and vitamin E. (MESO-BRIGHT or MESO-GLOW). Also don’t forget your hydrating cream and think about adding a serum to your evening regimen as well. This will lock in moisture and prevent premature wrinkles from forming.
At age 40, dark circles and wrinkles settle, and the skin wrinkles easily from your pillow !
Take the evening to apply active care and treatments such as MESO-GLOW. Rebooting the skin and giving it a surge of vitamins and antioxidants are sure to clear away dull, uneven skin. Look for hydrating products with hyaluronic acid which secures moisture and creates fullness.
Apply a care before bed.
During the day, the skin defends itself against various aggressions (UV, pollution, stress), particularly in its exposure to free radicals. At night, the skin focuses on detoxification, cell renewal, regeneration of collagen, elastin, etc. Night creams help skin repair and compensate for natural dehydration. In addition, because the skin is permeable at night, it is the best time to apply a care and offer the cells an optimal nutrient absorption.
The 4 good habits to adopt before going to bed :
- 1. Do not overheat your room, to avoid eye and facial swelling at night.
- 2. Sleep on your back to prevent the occurrence of pillow marks.
- 3. Choose silk pillowcases so that your skin is not ‘marked’ when you wake up.
- 4. Raise your head with a second pillow, to promote drainage and avoid eye bags and dark circles when waking.
What is the best time to exfoliate ?
According to our experts, the best time to scrub is between 7pm and 11pm. “At this time, the outer layer of the skin is most permeable. It also allows enough time for the skin to calm down throughout the night should redness occur”, says Dr Bernard Sillam. Caution, avoid exfoliation it if your skin has suffered significant aggressions during the day (solar exposure, wind, etc.). Apply in this case an emollient mask that removes the dead cells without irritating.
Do not forget to wake up and wash!
Refreshing your skin every morning is essential to eliminate night cream residues, sebum and night sweat. To remove them without altering the hydrolipidic film, clean your face every morning with a cotton pad soaked in micellar water or a gentle facial soap. You will have an impeccable skin, without stripping effect, and optimize the make-up.
