Sometimes you might have periods of time when your skin is amazing and other times it can appear dull, tired, spotty and dry. Fortunately, there are great products and scrubs available to revive your skin in times of need. A good skincare routine, drinking enough water and a healthy diet plays a huge role in keeping your skin healthy.
Do these 5 steps to help revive your skin overnight.
It’s good to exfoliate to get rid of any dry skin, excess oil and dirt. Use your regular exfoliator or make a natural one yourself at home.
We recommend making a DIY coffee scrub. Coffee grounds are great for exfoliating and getting rid of dry skin cells, revealing fresh and energised skin. Caffeic acid found in many plants and coffee is an antioxidant that reportedly boosts collagen and helps with wrinkles too. Coffee scrubs can also help with acne by unclogging pores and getting rid of excess oil.
Recipe: Simply mix 2 tablespoons of coffee grounds with 1 teaspoon of coconut oil. Scrub on your face for 30 seconds then wash off with warm water.
The next step would be to apply a face mask to soothe the skin. We recommend making a DIY turmeric face mask. Turmeric is an anti-inflammatory so making a homemade turmeric mask can really help to fight any inflamed acne and help to keep the skin clear and radiant. It can also help eczema improve too.
- Get 1 tablespoon of yogurt
- Add 1 teaspoon of turmeric powder
- Mix together and apply for 20 mins
- Wash with warm water and pat dry
If you don’t have the time to make a DIY face mask, you can use any other product you usually use. Some products we love are Estée Lauder – Perfectly Clean Multi-Action Creme Cleanser/Moisture Mask and Clarins SOS Hydra Refreshing Hydration Mask.
Apply a toner to tighten the skin and make pores smaller. A toner we love is Elemis Soothing Apricot Toner.
Using a night serum helps to repair the skin overnight, making skin look and feel clearer, smoother and more radiant. Apply your night serum once the above steps have been completed. We love using Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II.
And finally, apply your usual moisturiser once the night serum has soaked into the skin. All the above steps will really help to revive the skin overnight and you’ll wake up to much better skin!
