As you get familiar with skin care products and start to develop a routine that works for you, make sure to invest in a night time ritual as well. It is what most people neglect but an investment that will yield major benefits as you progress in age. Our skin repairs itself overnight and indulging in a night time routine will restore and maintain its balance, making sure you wake up with a soft, supple look and a natural glow. Read on to find out the best night care regime –
1 Double Cleanse
Before going to bed, make sure to cleanse your face with a mild and gentle cleanser to remove all dirt & impurities that accumulate on our face throughout the day. Follow this up with a hydrating toner/cleansing milk and use a cotton pad to remove any remaining makeup from your face.

#ProTip – Do not rub your face with a towel in the process of drying it, instead gently dab it with a soft & clean cotton towel to remove excess water.
2 Face Pack
Your evenings are the time when you can indulge in a routine that involves a face pack and completely pamper your skin with all the goodness it needs. Our personal favourite would be clay masks. Use them with water, curd or any other mixer of your choice, leave for 10-15 mins and wash away.
After thoroughly cleansing your skin, make sure to apply a generous dose of moisturiser to your skin. Your skin will work overnight as you sleep to absorb the moisture.
#ProTip – For dry skin, use a heavyweight, oil-based moisturiser, whereas for oily skin, use a lightweight and water-based gel instead for best results.

4 Face Oil
Face oils are magic potions missing from most of our skin care rituals. One may be wary of putting oils on the face but they are a must for night time routines. Take a couple of drops of the face oil and gently massage your face in a circular upward motion and leave it overnight. The next morning, wake up with a naturally dewy, radiant skin.
