Nighttime vs Morning Skincare Routines Are Likely More Beneficial

Updated: Nov 10, 2019





Let’s start with the basics. One thing many don’t realize is that the vast majority of facial skincare should be done in the evening before bed. Morning products should be limited to just a fewer. Skincare is absolutely most effective at night. This is mostly due to the fact that the skin absorbs and replenishes while you sleep, so to get the best benefits, this is when you should do your heavy lifting skincare. When you moisturize, hydrate, and care for your skin before bed by using quality skincare products, all of that good stuff is absorbed and used by the skin to rejuvenate while you aren’t even conscious of it. You also do your skin the favor of cleansing away all the makeup, sweat, dirt, oil, and other substances that make their way onto your face throughout the day.


Morning Routine


In the morning, not only do you probably have less time to take care of your skin, but you also already did all the most important skincare the night before. This means your best bet is to keep your morning routine short and simple. Start by gently rinsing your face or wiping it off with a damp, soft cloth. Don’t pull your cleanser back out—all you need in the morning is to slough off dead skin cells and prepare your skin for your other products.


Next, use a toner. This is the most underrated product out there, and the one that should definitely be used both day and night. Follow it with a serum, if you choose, and then (more importantly) a moisturizer with SPF. If for whatever reason you’re not outside in the sunshine, such as the winter months spent indoors, consider a moisturizer like a day time moisturizer


To recap, your morniung routine should consist of :

Rinse face with water, or wipe with a damp cloth Toner, Serum, Moisturizer with SPF in that order.


Nighttime Routine


Taking care of your face before bed is probably the most crucial part of any skincare routine. Because the skin does all of its best refreshing and rejuvenating as you sleep, making sure that your facial skin is cleansed and nourished before you hit the hay is the best way to wake up with soft, glowing, beautiful skin that looks great throughout the day. If you do an evening facial care routine only once a week, you won’t be reaping the full benefits of your products. Set aside a bit of time each evening to do these steps and you’ll enjoy a healthier skin glow, plus the relaxing benefits of self-care.

Always begin your evening skincare routine by cleansing your face. This is a crucial step to remove all the makeup, dirt, and other impurities that build up on your face over the course of the day. The next step is to use an exfoliator, if you choose. Exfoliators can be either chemical or physical, depending on your skin needs and age. Physical exfoliators are recommended for younger skin, while chemical or a combination of exfoliators are better for mature skin. Either way, exfoliators should only be used 2-3 times per week, as part of your evening routine.


If you enjoy facial maske as much as I do. There are masks with a wide variety of textures, ingredients, and uses, so look for one that is designed for the needs of your skin. This might be hydration, soothing, redness relief, vitamin-boosting, or a multitude of other benefits. Next step is to use a toner, which is something that many people skip, but should be prioritized. Toner is critical for the face, as it brings the pH balance of the skin to a normal level. It also provides other benefits, dependent on the specific ingredients of your toner.


Hope these tips help with your daily skin care routine.
