It’s not always easy to clock eight hours of sleep every night
Life gets busy. Work stress keeps your mind awake. The kids are loud. Those big ‘life’ questions creep up on you in bed. Maybe you just found a good series and had a guilty Netflix binge. Those eight hours soon turned into six. You don’t just feel it but also see it, on your face.
Get yourself a good night cream and relax for a moment. There are things you can do to give you that ‘slept like a baby’ look… regardless of how many times you’ve hit the snooze button.
The secret? A good night time routine
You want to prep your skin for a good night’s sleep with a night cream. All too often, we try to override a bad night’s sleep the next day, when it’s already too late. Be proactive and start thinking about how you can maximise your sleep hours to heal your skin with a night cream.
First, give your face a good clean so your pores are clear and can breathe. Doing this will prevent excess oils and build-up that can get trapped and cause you to wake up with a big, red pimple. Invest in the best face wash and follow it up with your night cream.
You probably know what we’re going to say next. Moisturise, moisturise, moisturise. Well yes, you’re right. But with a night cream that’s designed for PM. Our Age IQ Night Cream helps fight the signs of ageing and its underlying causes – all while you sleep. Chances are you’ll forget that this night cream is even an age-defying skincare product and fall in love with the way it makes your skin feel.
You’ll wake up with a brighter, refreshed and younger-looking complexion, without having to do a thing. A night cream is different from that of a lightweight day cream because it’s restorative, thicker and acts as a guard against wrinkle and lines that occur during sleeping. Blend the night cream with a brightening shield that helps plump your skin, keeping it hydrated, and helping even skin tone.
While a deep-cleansing facewash, a hydrating day and night cream, eye serum and firming moisturisers are your skin’s best friend, there are other ways to turn you into a morning lover.
Keep a glass of water next to your bed and drink it before going to sleep. If you have long hair, put it in a loose top bun so it’s not all over your face (or pillow). Greasy hair can transfer onto your skin and cause it to breakout… even if you do use skin cleansing products before bed. The good thing about Age IQ night cream is it acts as a protective layer between you and the pillow.
Once you lather evening cream on your face, set your room up for a peaceful sleep, too. Switch to a lamp an hour before you plan to sleep and pick up a book, instead of your iPhone. Create a peaceful vibe by burning incense, a candle, and ease into relaxation mode with a guided meditation. If you’ve got a lot on your mind, process it before your head hits the pillow. Take out a notebook and write down your thoughts. Journaling is one of the best processing tools (and ways to prevent your mind running wild when it should be sleeping). Nourish your face with the night cream and your mind with a good book.
Avoid junk food and after-dinner sweets. Keep them to a minimum. Include exercise into your daily routine and end your day with a cup of tea, not wine. Your face tells you everything about your inner health. Eat healthy, nutritious foods that are vitamin and mineral-rich. Get that morning glow through Age IQ night cream, prioritising sleep, and maintaining wellness habits.
Healthy routine = happy skin.
