The essential beauty bedtime routine

When the sun goes down and skin starts to work the night shift, you can take advantage of the physiological changes that occur during the night to maximise the visible results and wake up with skin that looks firmer and more vibrant in the morning.
While we’re blissfully off in slumberland, the following is happening to our skin:
- The natural antioxidant levels increase.
- Our cells go into overdrive helping to repair the damage incurred during the day from exposure to various environmental factors and sets about rejuvenating itself.
- Stress hormones decrease, so the skin is now better able to repair itself.
- Our blood vessels dilate, allowing an increased flow of nutrients and oxygen to the skin, thus stimulating the removal of toxic products.
- Give your cells a helping hand and think of the time before you go to bed as an opportunity to feed your skin cells the nutrients they need to optimise healing.

Here are some of our top products picks:
