In the morning, you might cleanse, tone and moisturize.
But your nighttime skin care routine requires more than just a quick swipe with a washcloth. In fact, your skin needs additional TLC before bedtime.
During the day, environmental factors break down the structural components that keep your skin tight and firm. One of these components, elastin, is composed of cross-linked fibers that form a durable, resilient web. This elastin web helps keep facial skin flexible but tight. For example, elastin allows the skin to bounce back to its normal shape after it stretches to accommodate normal activities, like talking.
As skin ages, the natural cross-linking of elastin fibers is reduced. At night, while you sleep, the skin care works to repair and restore its structural components, and actually “opens up” to allow creams and serums to absorb more readily. You can get the most bang for your buck, then, by applying products with powerful anti-aging ingredients before bed.
To help your skin restore itself at night, adopt a nighttime skin care routine that includes an exfoliating cleanser, a serum and a moisturizing cream created for evening use. The best nighttime serums contain beneficial and robust ingredients. For example, DDF Restoring Night Serum contains an exclusive turmeric complex that strengthens the moisture barrier and drenches the skin with essential hydration to support the natural cross linking of elastin, helping to repair the look of deep wrinkles for visible results in just two weeks. Women who used DDF Restoring Night Serum saw noticeable improvements. After four weeks of use, the skin’s surface structure doubled in strength, significantly minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
