If you’ve ever fallen asleep with your makeup on, you may have noticed your complexion looking a bit dull the next day. Your skin has the opportunity to repair itself while you sleep, but leaving makeup, oil, dirt, or any other remnants of the day on your skin can hinder cellular regeneration.
Harmful environmental factors like UV rays, free radicals, harsh weather and pollutants penetrate the epidermis each day. A nighttime skincare routine will empower your skin to repair itself faster. By cleansing, hydrating and nourishing each evening, skin cells will regenerate quickly due to increased blood flow to the skin. It is the most opportune time to reverse the damage and create new cells. This natural rejuvenation while you sleep helps reduce damage to your skin’s surface during the day.
Nighttime is all about repair. Circadian rhythms impact your skin, and research shows that stem cells located in the epidermis are more active at night, replacing aged cells with fresh ones. This turnover of cells is instrumental in the active absorption of the products, especially when it comes to treating skin conditions like acne, hyperpigmentation, rosacea and inflammation.
Although many people implement their skincare routine right before going to sleep, it is optimal to begin the process closer to the time that you get home. Since it takes a solid 20+ minutes for your products to penetrate the skin, starting early will keep moisturizer and serum in your skin instead of on your pillow.
Skincare sets containing potent, clinical grade ingredients are an ideal way to build your evening routine -- and power your morning skincare routine, too. Three powerful sets from Dp Dermaceuticals include full size products and take the guesswork out of treating specific skin concerns like acne, aging and pigmentation. When used regularly, these skin care products will change the appearance of your complexion for the better.
The Acne Skin Set contains CLR Foam Cleanser, CLR Lotion and CliniPrep, the top three products from Dp Dermaceuticals for treating breakouts. Congested skin will be a distant memory as resilience and clarity become the new norm. This set cuts down on excess oils that clog pores using Niacinamide and Salicylic Acid. Manuka Honey restores your natural glow and adds powerful hydration. CliniPrep is an antimicrobial solution that is neutral pH to give your skin protection from bacterial infection without stripping or stinging.
The Age-Defying Skin Set helps you turn back the hands of time and uncover your youthful self. Start your routine with Tri-Phase Cleanser, a gentle transformative balm that turns into a milk and can remove even stubborn makeup. Vitamin Rich Repair, Retinal Active, Skin Veneer and R.E.R.
