New Delhi: Night care is as necessary as a day care routine. Since the night regimen helps repair skin cells to ensure faster healing and accelerates skin cell regeneration. Sleeping late after partying with excessive makeup can lead to breakouts.
Neha Kant, Founder and Director of Clovia shares 5 things you should do before falling asleep after drinking and dancing all night to wake up with fresh, radiant and supple skin:
Remove all makeup smeared on your face: During the party, makeup tends to mix with sweat and dirt which can cause skin problems like acne and blemishes later on. So the first thing to do is to remove your makeup. The simplest DIY makeup remover requires one tablespoon of aloe vera gel and one tablespoon of olive oil or jojoba oil. Dab with cotton and apply it on the face. It helps remove eyeliner and mascara as effectively as foundation and blusher, leaving skin feeling clean, fresh and glowing. Another trick is to use sweet almond oil. Sweet almond oil is considered a natural makeup remover that will naturally make the face shine.
Drink gallons of water: Staying hydrated is necessary for healthy skin texture. The consumption of alcohol and cocktails in the evening has a dehydrating effect on the body as well as on the skin. Alcohol dilates the pores of the skin, resulting in blackheads and whiteheads. To add hydration, one can spray pure rose water or dab it with cotton to rejuvenate the pores of the skin. Rose water gives a soothing rehydrating effect on the skin.
Pamper your skin with face serums: The convention of applying facial serums is to apply them twice a day. Once in the morning and once in the evening. There are a variety of face serums available for all skin types. They have the added benefit of leaving the skin looking fresh, plumped and glowing. Facial serums containing hyaluronic acid with vitamin C are best for the after-party skincare regimen. Hyaluronic acid helps replenish skin to boost hydration and improve skin elasticity. Vitamin C further adds luminous, radiant and younger looking skin.
Face cream with a soft and supple touch: Face serum and face cream go hand in hand when it comes to skin care routines. One provides moisture and the other retains moisture. The best cream to apply after face serum is a cream based on Kumkumadi Tailam. Kumkumadi is suitable for all skin types but is most effective on dry and sensitive skin. Kumkumadi tailam has antiseptic, disinfectant and soothing properties. It is therefore the best precaution you can take to avoid skin problems like acne and blemishes after a long period of makeup.
Wrap it with a pink clay mask: Pink Clay helps improve skin elasticity and cell renewal. Pink clay consists mainly of Australian clay, seaweed and pomegranate. Australian clay detoxifies and brightens skin and pomegranate firms skin cells to make your skin look more radiant and youthful. It leaves the skin feeling soft and smooth and, moreover, helps to minimize blackheads and promote a radiant and balanced complexion.
