5 Steps To The Perfect Before Bed Skin Care Routine

Your skin goes through a lot during the day so it’s important to detox and reset everything before you settle in for a night of restorative sleep. Here are some of my favorite ways to prep my skin for an evening of beauty rest…

1. Remove your makeup.

This one is crucial because makeup is one of the biggest culprits when it comes to clogged pores. I like to use a milky or cream cleanser that I can smooth onto my face when it’s dry and then tissue off or rinse with warm water.

2. Pull back your hair.

Since hair traps oil and bacteria (not to mention any silicones, etc. that may be in your favorite hair products), pulling it back with a soft scrunchie makes sure that these acne-causers to not get in your face.

3. Hydrate.

Use a skin cream meant for nighttime. Night creams tend to be thicker and possess many reparative and therapeutic actions plus hydration.

4. Apply eye cream.

Do not neglect the most delicate skin on your face! The skin around your eyes requires a cream rich in aloe and Vitamin E natural oils and anti-oxidants to keep things looking youthful, preventing dark circles and crow’s feet.

Try Nutri-Contour from Yon-Ka Paris, a nourishing and repairing treatment for your eyes and lips.

5. Change your pillowcase.


I like to do this weekly because I find that bacteria and product residue can really build up, causing serious breakouts.


Following these simple solutions will help to keep your skin clear and healthy while you sleep.
