Healthy skin doesn’t have to be hard work. You can actually repair your skin with clever advice from the skin care guru himself, Ole Henriksen. While protecting your skin during the day is important, you can give your skin a boost by adding the following tips to your nightly routine.
• Use a separate night crème from your day crème. While many crèmes can be used for day and night, it’s a good idea to find a regular night crème that will repair your skin while you’re getting your beauty rest. Ole’s express the truth crème, nurture me, sheer transformation and pure perfection face crèmes are especially designed to hydrate and firm your skin overnight.
• Use an adequate amount of moisturizer. Use a generous amount of moisturizer while you sleep to provide your skin with a healthy, vibrant glow. After you’ve applied your moisturizer, slip your hand across the skin. It should feel dewy to the touch if you’ve applied enough. When you wake up, your skin will be soft and smooth for the day!
• Fall asleep naturally. Avoid under eye darkness and tired looking eyes with a good nights sleep. If you are having trouble sleeping, taking medication to aid sleep is not the answer. Instead, Ole recommends choosing the natural way with a soothing cup of caffeine free tea like African red tea or chamomile with some honey to help you drift off to sleep.
• Get regular exercise everyday. If you are active during the day, your body will be prepared for a good night’s sleep. Not only will your muscles be tired, but keeping the body fit and taking in plenty of fresh oxygen will help your circulation and keep your energy levels balanced.
