No matter what skin type, a night skincare regime is a must for everyone and there’s nothing like a dependence on natural goodness to treat and nourish the largest organ of your body.

Our body and skin repair and rejuvenate itself the most while we are asleep and that is when all the products are known to work best. So it’s vital to have an appropriate nighttime skincare routine which nourishes and prepares the skin for survival.

Skincare should be given utmost importance and use products that are not only natural and organic but effective as well. Co-founder, Vanity Wagon, Naina Ruhail shares tips on night time skin regime for different skin types.

For Skin: Oily

If you have to fix the stickiness on your face and blot the unwanted shine ever so often, then you must resort to a bounty of nature’s curative properties to fight these disturbing situations and combat them while you sleep. Everyone with oily skin must use gentle products that do not over dry the skin and also prevent breakouts.

Start with removing your makeup with a gentle cleansing lotion, follow up with an oil control face wash, and hydrate your skin with a toner. After cleansing and toning, make sure you pat in a facial oil to counter the loss of proper nourishment. In the end, moisturise with a light-weight and non-greasy formula to lock in the goodness and sleep over the concerns for a brighter morning.

You must also scrub and mask twice a week to upkeep the skin, buff off the dead skin, and unclog the pores. We at Vanity Wagon recommend Activate Charcoal detox face mask by Neemli Naturals, Bio Pineapple Oil Balancing face wash by Biotique, Tea Tree cleansing lotion by Omorfee and Tamanu + Cranberry seed face oil by Vaunt Skincare.

Dry Skin:

If your skin feels tingly and tight, has a flaky appearance and tends to peel off in case you do not hydrate it properly then it needs intense nourishment and love. Dry skin often has a dull appearance and is also quite itchy, especially in extreme weather conditions. You can balance your skin’s vital levels with an extensive night care routine.

Pick a chemical-free face wash to gently remove the dirt and impurities. Use rose water or an alcohol-free toner to restore the pH balance. Spray an activated hydrator, pat in a rich serum or facial oil and moisturise to set everything in. Make sure you wait a minute before each step to let the product seep in well.

Indulging in gentle scrubbing, masking and using body butter is also a great way to prevent dryness. Some of the top-rated products that everyone with dry skin love is Scrub it off by Auli Lifestyle, Reviving moisture mask by Ilana Organics, and Multivitamin Super hydration by Vaunt Skincare.

Sensitive skin:

Sensitive skin is very fragile and difficult to treat knowing that it may react adversely to just any product anytime. People with sensitive skin often suffer from unexpected redness and blotchiness when exposed to extreme weather conditions or even a slightly polluted environment. Though nothing can be done to change the skin type, one can surely treat it better with an effective and thoughtful night-time routine.

We suggest you start with gently removing your makeup or dirt with cleansing milk. Wash it with a mild cleanser, and use a toner to prep it. Follow up with a healing and nourishing face oil. Facial oils soothe the easily irritable skin and prevent unexpected reactions. Post using the oil, moisturise as usual and get to bed.

Products that work wonders for sensitive skin are Clear 7 face wash by First Water Solutions, Rosemary and calendula cleansing milk by Paul Penders, and Hibiscus and saffron night cream by Neemli Naturals.

Apart from this, indulging in a stress-relieving bath, eating clean and working out also helps in keeping the skin healthy and glowing.
