The term “beauty sleep” has a real meaning. While our bodies rest, our skin works hard to renew and repair itself. Without the exposure to stress and environmental stressors, such as pollution and the sun, it encounters during the day, it’s free to replenish damaged and dead skin cells and focus on cell turnover.
Step 1: Use a makeup remover
While a quick face wash can be sufficient to start the day, in the evening, you’ll need to melt away the day’s dirt and makeup before you layer on any nourishing night serums and creams. A blank canvas is essential to guarantee your skincare products work as hard as you want them to.
Our Effacil liquid eye makeup remover is enriched with rose extract to help remove non-waterproof makeup from your eyelashes and eyelids effectively while still being soft and gentle enough to use if you have sensitive skin and eyes.
For a little more oomph, our Bi-Facil Eye Makeup Remover leaves your eyes makeup free and feeling clean even if you’ve been wearing waterproof mascara. It’s also suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers.
Step 2: Follow with a cleanser
While your makeup remover focuses on clearing your skin of mascara, your cleanser can clear the surface of dead skin cells, bacteria, dirt and oil. While you want a cleanser that cleans your skin effectively, you also want one that isn’t too harsh and strips your skin of essential oils and moisture.
Our Gel Eclat foam gentle cleanser offers a thorough non-drying cleanse, removing your skin of impurities while still keeping it hydrated and comfortable.
Step 3: Nourishing night serums
You want your serum to penetrate the skin’s deeper layers as effectively and quickly as possible. With your skin clean of any impurities, it can deliver its potent hit of active ingredients to target particular skin concerns. If you want a hydration boost, look for a hyaluronic acid serum. To repair and prevent signs of premature ageing such as dark spots and wrinkles, choose an antioxidant-rich vitamin C serum that can encourage collagen production.
For a serum that can do both, apply two pumps of Rénergie H.C.F Triple hydrating serum and massage into your face and neck before bed. Our best night serum for your face, it’s enriched with hyaluronic acid, vitamin C+ niacinamide, and ferulic acid to help neutralise free radical damage and visibly plump and smooth skin to help improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Our Advanced Génifique Serum draws on 20 years of research and combines hyaluronic acid with a complex of seven prebiotic and probiotic-derived extracts to help strengthen your skin barrier while you sleep. Apply a layer before bed to help wake up to a more radiant complexion and improved skin tone and texture.
Step 4: Anti-ageing eye creams
As the delicate skin around your eyes is the most fragile on your face, it needs all the help it can get. To trap in moisture overnight and help you wake up looking refreshed, gently dab an eye cream around the eye contour using fast tapping movements to stimulate the skin without pulling it.
Our Advanced Génifique Eye Cream formula is enriched with a complex of seven prebiotic and probiotic derived extracts, and hyaluronic acid to help intensely hydrate the eye area and aid your skin’s barrier recovery while you sleep. It also helps you wake up to a brighter, younger-looking eye area.
Step 5: Moisturising at night
As your skin produces less sebum while you sleep, it is more susceptible to drying out and losing moisture at night. Finishing your skincare routine with a nourishing layer of night cream can help you feel comfortable overnight and wake up looking refreshed. For best results, choose a night cream designed for your skin type, whether that's acne-prone skin or combination. Dry skin types will need all the hydration they can get, while those with oily skin will want to stick to lightweight formulas that don’t clog your pores overnight.
