Ah, it’s been a long day! Nothing feels quite as good as getting into your own bed after the sun sets, but don’t forget about giving your face a little TLC before your beauty sleep. Did you know that your skin regenerates and repairs while you catch the Z’s? That’s why we’ve put together some of our favorite Althea products to create an easy night time routine. Keep your skin in tip-top shape before you start counting sheep!
Remove makeup and cleanse away impurities
Step 1 - Cleanse
Whether you’re a fan of made up looks or a lightweight sunscreen-and-powder kinda girl, your skin can always benefit from a good double cleanse! The Pore Purifying Serum Cleanser
does both the steps with just one product, applying onto the skin like an oil to melt away makeup and impurities before transforming into a foam with a little water to whisk all that down the drain. It also helps to balance the pH levels of the skin, keeping it clean and healthy.
Exfoliate and nourish with milk!
Step 2 - Mask
No time to waste, pick a multitasking product like the Milk Peel Cream Mask
to pamper your skin! Containing both AHA and BHA extracts, this gentle but effective exfoliator transforms from a clay to a whipped cream lather, whisking away dead skin cells to prevent flakiness while simultaneously nourishing the skin with casein protein from milk. The result is radiantly smooth, healthy skin that's bouncy to the touch!
Prep, soothe and hydrate
Step 3 - Prep
Soothe, hydrate and banish redness your complexion after a hard day with the Waterful Green Bamboo Pads
. These embossed pads are our solution for uneven, irritated, parched skin, blessing the face with a toner containing bamboo extracts to calm unwanted redness, exfoliate impurities and hydrate. Use these as toner pads or leave them on the face for a couple of minutes for a quick soothing fix!
Step 4 - Moisturize
Seal all your hard work in before your head hits the pillow with the Fixer Cream
. This nourishing moisturizer is infused with trehalose and baobab tree extracts to provide the skin with hydration for up to 24 hours for a fresh, revitalized complexion. It also helps keep dry flaky bits of skin at bay, especially for those of us who enjoy our cool AC air while we snooze!
Step 5 - Treat
This one’s for those pesky spots that you need gone by morning. The Skin Relief Spot Film Gel
applies thinly onto the skin before drying down to a smooth canvas, protecting the area with tea tree oil to quickly and effectively treat acne. It also has a mix of centella and pine leaf extracts calm redness, treating acne while you get your beauty sleep.
