A good night’s rest is crucial for waking up to beautiful and regenerated skin. Your nighttime skincare routine is also an essential part of your skin’s well-being. Do you think that not removing your makeup and sleeping four hours is going to result in a lovely morning face in the mirror? I’ll explain why your night skincare routine is the most important part of your skin’s day, and what you can do to get started on a path to gloriously beautiful skin!
Beauty sleep is real
I can’t stress enough that your skincare routine does not end after you take your makeup off at night. Sure, it sounds convenient to rinse and roll into bed, but that is probably not going to be enough if you want to work toward glowing and youthful skin. Your skin deserves your time and effort, and the night time is the best time to relax and enjoy some TLC with your face. Lucky for us, Tria Beauty has everything you need for a complete night routine, which includes the SmoothBeauty Anti-Aging Laser for reversing signs of sun damage, fine lines, and wrinkles.
Research shows that beauty sleep is a real thing–just think about the last time you slept less than seven hours. How did your face look when you woke up? After a long day of working the daily grind, commuting, and helping the kids with their homework, your body (and face) needs a good rest to regenerate, and that means getting at least seven hours of sleep per night. Your cells are working overtime during these hours to renew, and you need to supply your skin with the proper nutrients as this process happens.
I always start off removing my eye and brow makeup first. Getting that out of the way ensures that I won’t get any mascara or eye makeup into my eyes as I am cleansing. I prefer micellar water, like this one for all skin types from French brand Caudalie. I saturate a cotton round with the micellar water and press it to one eye at a time to let it absorb for a moment. Then I use a gentle downward motion to remove the makeup completely. For any residue, I use a cotton swab dipped in the micellar water to remove anything stuck between my lashes.
Next, I use the Tria Priming Cleanser to clean away my foundation, concealer, powder, and whatever else is lingering on my face at the end of the day. Since we will discuss incorporating the SmoothBeauty Age-Defying Laser in this routine, all of your makeup must be completely removed so there is nothing blocking the laser from penetrating. The Willow Bark Extract in the cleanser gently exfoliates while the moisturizing complex helps your skin retain your skin’s natural oils.
It’s all about the laser
This laser is going to change everything. In the beginning, you might notice a bit of dry skin or flakiness, so you want to make sure if you are using any type of prescribed Retin-A or tretinoin that you refrain from using it on the areas you are treating with the laser. Over-the-counter retinol is weaker and should be okay to use in conjunction with your laser treatments.
The SmoothBeauty Age-Defying laser sends beams of light deep beneath the skin’s surface where collagen and elastin form, accelerating skin’s natural rejuvenation process. In a clinical study, 89% of users report that the SmoothBeauty Laser leaves their skin looking better than any other product. When the laser causes the skin’s natural healing response to spring into action, new collagen will form, and the skin will naturally exfoliate.
In my personal experience, I saw a big difference in the texture and tone of my skin in four weeks when I used the laser five days per week. After twelve weeks, you can give the laser a break for four weeks, then return to your regular twelve-week regimen.
Vitamin C is your key ingredient to anti-aging at night! Tria’s Super C Brightening Moisturizer is formulated with an oil-based form of Vitamin C that is absorbed into the skin. This powerful antioxidant moisturizer works to protect skin against free radical damage without irritation. In a study, it was found that Vitamin C decreased photoaging, better known as sun damage, increased collagen, and also improved hydration. With the addition of hyaluronic acid, your skin will attract moisture, keeping your face hydrated during sleep. Just apply the moisturizer to your face, neck, and chest.
What about the eyes?
There is only so much that an eye cream can do. The customers who have tried the SmoothBeauty Eye Wrinkle Laser say that when combined with a good eye cream you will see crow’s feet and lines diminish within two to eight weeks and beyond. The laser will need to be used every single day as part of your beauty ritual. You will love the benefits!
After your eye laser treatment, you will want to cool it down and moisturize. The Tria Nourishing Eye Renewal Cream is expertly formulated with Hyaluronic Acid and Ginger Extract to soothe and hydrate laser-treated skin, and age targeting boosters to help smooth the eye area. This is a must-have eye cream if you are using the laser! The metal tip adds an extra coolness that feels very calming.
Of course, the next course of action is to hit the hay. I recommend that in order to get a good night’s sleep, to wear a sleep mask to keep the light out (or husbands that check email in the middle of the night on their bright cell phones). The copper-infused Beauty Boosting Eye Mask is going to do a couple of things for you while you sleep: keep out the light, and reduce lines with copper. Copper is an essential mineral known to enhance skin appearance for a healthy, youthful glow. The mask has a thick layer of padding and feels very luxurious!
This nighttime routine may sound like a lot for some people who are not used to spending time in front of the mirror. If you are serious about anti-aging and keeping your skin glowing, then you need to trust the process. The total time for using the lasers is about ten minutes when used on the highest setting, so we’re really not taking more than fifteen minutes for the entire process. The more you invest in your skincare time, the better results you will see.
