The late hours of the night are generally set aside for relaxation and personal care; it is your time and your time alone. There are no unwanted phone calls to answer (well, hopefully), no social functions to attend (shout out to our introverted friends!), and no errands to run. After a long day at work, the night is the time to take care of yourself, and finally get the rest you need.
This entire "beauty rest" notion has some truth to it: your skin absorbs the nutrients in your products better at night than it does during the day. Additionally, there are no environmental stresses at night while you sleep; products may penetrate better, and your skin can breathe when you're not wearing makeup.
So what does that mean for you? It’s the ideal time to stick to a skincare ritual. It keeps your skin free of contaminants while also making it look and feel great.
While no ‘one-size-fits-all’ plan exists, there is a core regimen that everyone should follow (and using 10 Degrees Cooler products is the best way to ensure you follow through!):
Step 1: Cleanse your skin
Removing your makeup completely before proceeding is 100% required, and you can accomplish this with the use of a high-quality cleanser.
Micellar waters are a gentler alternative to alcohol-based makeup removers, making them extremely gentle on the skin. Because they're made up of micelles, which are molecules that naturally "pull any [dirt and oil] off your skin," they provide an additional layer of cleaning without drying your face.” Or, of course, you can use an ultra nourishing cleansing balm, like ours. Filled with antioxidants and nutrients, it helps rejuvenate the skin!
The 02 Cleansing Balm -- Overnight Mask is an excellent cleanser for dry skin that also doubles as an overnight mask (what can we say, we love multitasking).
It nourishes and hydrates the skin, while also assisting in the reduction of fine wrinkles. It's a multifunctional solution that balances and detoxifies while also reducing oil production in oilier skin. It may also be used to remove makeup. It is made up of yummy natural oils which have anti-inflammatory and hydrating properties. It calms irritated skin while also protecting it from the sun and pollution.
Step 2: Apply Face Oil
03 Midnight In Corsica Face Oil
The 03 Midnight In Corsica Face Oil is a wonderful night oil for people of all skin types. Scientifically developed with potent anti-aging properties to combat skin loss caused by age, (*chef’s kiss!*), it contains rare, highly-reparative ingredients (all certified organic, thank you very much) that help seal in moisture and protect the skin from environmental contaminants.
Step 3: Mask It Up!
Okay, so this is a fantastic anti-aging mask suitable for all skin types. This mask's high ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) comes from a combination of antioxidant components, resulting in moisturised, healthier, smoother, and younger-looking skin. Raw Royal Jelly, Goji Berry, and Bee Pollen are key nutrients that assist improved collagen formation, resulting in firmer, more supple skin. They also help minimise the appearance of scars and UV damage, and encourage cell development to combat ageing.
Whether it’s the 06 or 05 mask you’re using, you can’t go wrong for a night time ritual. The 05 Marine Algae Mask, however, is a remarkable pollution-fighting mask that effectively cleanses the skin, while also helping protect it from hazardous environmental pollutants. It's an especially reparative mask that's suitable for all skin types, but it's especially beneficial for oily or troubled skin. Seaweeds rich in vitamins, spirulina, and single-celled chlorella all help to strengthen and encourage the formation of skin tissues like collagen and elastin.
Choosing organic skin care products helps keep potentially dangerous chemicals off your body and out of the ecosystems where those goods' ingredients are grown. As such, one should reach for clean skin care containing organic ingredients whenever possible. Having said that, the most crucial aspect of your regimen is to create one that you'll stick to.
Skincare won't work if you only use it once; you'll need to stick to a consistent ritual. If you don’t see the effects you want instantly, give it about a month as it may take a few weeks to see a difference. And don’t forget we are here to serve you.
