At Cosmetify headquarters we’re always on the hunt for the perfect skin care routine. Well, more specifically, we’re desperately seeking the secret to radiant, glowing complexions. But, who isn’t?
So, sit back, relax and get ready for our lowdown on the best ways to get glowing skin overnight.
1. Double cleanse
You need to cleanse not once, but TWICE. Yes, you heard us. Say so long to the face wipes and hello to radiant skin. Double cleansing is great for getting deep into your pores and removing any impurities; it stops your face from getting congested and keeps you looking bright and spot-free.
Using an oil cleanser is an effective way to remove makeup, sunscreen, sweat and everything else sitting on top of your skin. Made from an olive oil formula, this DHC cleansing solution is extremely gentle on the skin and effortlessly melts away build-up from the day. Not to mention, it feels super silky on your face.
Follow your oil cleanser with a cream cleanser to get rid of any lasting traces of makeup. This Liz Earle product is a great option as is it comes with a muslin cloth which acts as a very gentle exfoliant. Massage the cleanser into your face, run the cloth under lukewarm water and let it rest on your skin. Then wipe away the sins of the day, revealing a cleaner and brighter you.
2. Use a toner
The next step in our how to get glowing skin routine is of course the toner. We all knew it was coming. Toner helps you minimise the appearance of pores and gives you a new, radiant vitality that is crucial for achieving that much-needed glow.
The clue is in the name. The PIXI Glow Tonic does exactly what it says on the tin, giving you a glorious glow and a purified complexion. Bursting with glycolic acid, this toner exfoliates your face, buffing away dead skin cells, combating blackheads and removing toxins. And the liquid formula stimulates cell renewal, which is the secret to a vibrant, radiant finish.
3. Apply a Serum
Serums may seem like a silly step, but once you introduce them into you routine you’ll never look back. Not only will your face feel hydrated and plump, but we’re pretty sure you’ll receive a quite few compliments on your glowing complexion.
The NIOD Multi Molecular Hyaluronic Complex is the perfect serum to create a youthful bounce and radiance. It gives you the ultimate hydration boost, while also protecting your skin with antibacterial and antioxidant elements. The formulation is extremely gentle and a little really goes a long way. Just pat a few pumps into your face, et voila, you’re good to go.
And last, but by no means least, you should finish your nightly routine with a hydrating moisturiser. This helps nourish your parched skin and locks in any moisture before you hit the hay - find out more about this step with our guide to night creams.
The Estelle & Thild BioHydrate Instense Mositure Night Cream is a fantastic option for people searching for a gentle, yet deeply hydrating formula.
