Beauty sleep is a very real concept. While you snooze each night, your skin enters a reparative phase. This is when your skin works on fixing any damage that has occurred over the course of the day while also creating new cells and protein fibers. Since it doesn’t have to deal with environmental aggressors overnight, it’s able to concentrate solely on regeneration.

This is why having a dependable nighttime skincare routine is so important. Sure, you may be tired and ready to collapse into bed each evening but spending a few minutes pampering your skin will leave your skin feeling supported as it goes about its regenerative tasks, meaning that you’ll then wake up with a healthier-looking complexion.

What does a good nighttime skincare routine involve? Read on as Avinichi explains!

Begin By Removing Makeup

Before doing anything with your skin in the evening, it’s imperative that you first remove any makeup that you may be wearing. While your cleanser may be able to do this for you, applying a cleanser to your skin when it’s covered in layers of makeup could mean that your cleanser leaves some of the dirt and sebum on your skin untouched since it will instead have so much makeup that it needs to clear away.

So, begin with a makeup remover, ensuring that you wash away every last trace of the makeup that you’re wearing before continuing on with your nighttime skincare routine. 

What if you don’t wear makeup? Then skip this step and move on to the next!

Cleanse Your Skin Every Night

While cleansing twice a day can be beneficial, there are many out there with dry or sensitive skin that can only cleanse once a day, and this should always be done at night. Why? Because this gives you the opportunity to remove all of the dirt, sebum, and environmental impurities that have built up on your skin’s surface throughout the day.

If you skip your cleanse, then not only will you be putting your skin at risk of damage from all of those impurities, but you’ll also find that your nighttime skincare routine won’t be as effective. All of the products that you apply will struggle to reach your skin cells because of the layer of dirt that’s blocking the way.

What makes things tricky is that many cleansers are infamous for how they disrupt the skin’s microbiome. This is bad at all times but even more detrimental at night. As we mentioned earlier, you want your skin to feel supported while it carries out its nightly task. If your skin’s microbiome has been impaired in any way, your skin cells won’t be able to function optimally.

To keep your skin feeling balanced after cleansing, go for a gentle cleanser, such as Avinichi’s Noni Mousse Cleanser. It’s fantastic at cleansing the skin and it also boasts a number of moisturizing ingredients. From argan oil to noni fruit extract to chamomile extract, this cleanser will leave your skin feeling deeply revitalized.

Provide a Moisture Boost With a Toner

Your skin cells need moisture at all times, but this need becomes even greater at night. Why? Because not only do your skin cells use more moisture when they’re working hard to regenerate but this is also when transepidermal water loss (TEWL) increases. This is the speed at which your skin loses moisture to evaporation. 

To counter this, give your skin an extra boost of moisture during your nighttime skincare routine with a toner. Of course, not every toner is designed to hydrate the skin so look for a formula that focuses on this, just like Avinichi’s Noni Pore Purifying Toner. 

Our toner is brimming with hydrating ingredients, including aloe vera leaf juice and cucumber fruit extract. It also contains witch hazel extract, which will help to shrink the look of your pores to give your complexion a more even finish.

Another advantage to using a toner is that it will help to leave your skin feeling more balanced after cleansing. Remember how we mentioned that many cleansers disrupt the skin’s microbiome? A good toner will restore your complexion, leaving it feeling fortified once again.

Use Serums Containing Powerful Active Ingredients

Evenings are the perfect time to pamper your skin with powerful active ingredients. Since your skin won’t be working hard to defend itself against environmental damage, it will be able to put all of those actives to good use, reaping maximum benefits from them.

Due to their lightweight nature, serums are the best way to give your skin the active ingredients that it needs. What ingredients would these be? This all depends on the visible skin concerns that you’re dealing with. For best results, you’ll need to identify the issues that you want to target and then pick serums that have been designed to help with those problems.

For example, if your skin has been looking dull and wrinkled, a vitamin C serum could be a game-changer. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that has been proven to offer up a ton of benefits. Not only will it help to reduce the appearance of aging in your skin but it will also work to lighten the look of discoloration while brightening your overall complexion. Some vitamin C serums contain just one form of the antioxidant but the Avinichi Hydrating Multifruit C-Serum really packs a punch with two types of vitamin C, along with vitamins A and E.

For even more antioxidant power, add our Hydrating Antioxidant Serum to your nighttime skincare routine too. This serum can be found in our Phyto Thermal Collection. It combines a potent blend of antioxidants with a trio of peptides. Numerous studies show how peptides can improve how healthy the skin feels while also diminishing the visible signs of aging.

Apply an Eye Cream

Want to ensure that you don’t wake up with an eye area that looks puffy or shadowed? That’s where a good eye cream can save the day.

Since the skin around the eyes is so much thinner than the skin anywhere else on the face, it’s more susceptible to problems. This is exacerbated by how the eye area contains fewer sebaceous glands. This means that it’s less able to keep itself hydrated and lubricated.

Applying an eye cream before you head to bed will give this delicate part of your complexion an extra boost. Again, just like when choosing a serum, look for an eye cream that’s designed to deal with the visible skin concerns that you’re experiencing.

The Avinichi Dark Circle Eye Perfecting Cream, for example, is all about lightening the look of dark circles. Whether yours are caused by genetics, sun damage, or a lack of sleep, this cream will have you waking up to skin that looks clear and bright. Thanks to the vitamins and antioxidants in this formula, it will also hydrate your eye area while softening the appearance of crow’s feet and other wrinkles.

Round Up Your Nighttime Skincare Routine With a Moisturizer

The final step in your nighttime skincare routine should be to moisturize. This is important for a few different reasons.

For starters, a moisturizer will give your skin a final splash of hydration. The right formula will ensure that your skin has access to all of the moisture that it needs overnight.

Moisturizing will also help to seal off your skin’s surface. Remember how we talked about TEWL earlier? Layering a moisturizer over the top of your skin will prevent water from evaporating at such a speedy rate. It will help your skin with moisture retention, which is crucial overnight.

Finally, a moisturizer can also provide amazing assistance when it comes to the various skin concerns that you’re dealing with. Struggling with the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles? Find a moisturizer that works to target the visible signs of aging. Tired of having dry and rough skin? Look for a thick moisturizer that will soften and smooth your complexion.

Of course, some moisturizers, such as the Avinichi Noni Night Repair Cream, are fantastic all-rounders. Not only will this moisturizer leave your skin feeling deeply hydrated but it will also help with the appearance of everything from aging to dark spots with its powerful cocktail of vitamins and antioxidants. Ideal for all skin types, this moisturizer would be a huge asset to your nighttime skincare routine.

Indulge in an Overnight Mask Once a Week

If you want your skin to look its best, then it would be worth giving it an extra pampering once in a while. One way to do this is with a face mask. 

There are so many different types of face masks out there. If you decide to use a sheet mask or a clay mask, these should be applied after your face has been cleansed, before you use a toner. However, if you’re in a hurry and don’t have time to wait for 10 minutes while your sheet or clay mask works its magic, an overnight mask would be a worthy alternative.

Overnight masks consist of no-rinse formulas. This means that you’ll be able to simply apply one to your skin, underneath your moisturizer, and then leave it to do its job. You won’t need to wash it off or remove it, which saves a lot of time.

Our mask of choice for this is the Liquid Lift Overnight Melting Mask. It’s loaded with a long list of superfruit extracts, including acai, goji, bilberry, and pomegranate. Each one contains a vast array of antioxidants, which is exactly what your skin needs in order to feel supported while it works to repair daily damage. Even better, this mask is incredibly hydrating too. Apply it in the evening and your skin will look noticeably brighter and plumper come morning!
