Every solid anti-aging skincare routine should consist of the necessary staples to promote radiant skin while warding off the look of fine lines and wrinkles, dark spots, dull skin, and drooping. Think a nourishing, hydrating cleanser that sweeps away the day, a gentle exfoliating hero that moisturizes for seriously glowing skin day after day. And don’t forget a top-notch nighttime moisturizer, too!
We’re sharing how you can get the most out of your anti-aging nighttime skincare routine by layering skincare products together. Follow our quick, step-by-step guide and you’ll be on your way to youthful-looking, radiant skin.
What Routine Is Best for Glowing Skin?
Ready to learn the ins and outs of getting a glow up? All you need to do is follow these three simple steps. Remember: consistency is key to seeing results.
Step One: Lather Up With a Skin-Loving Cleanser
What goes on must come off. Begin your evening skincare routine with a skin-loving cleanser, like Confidence in a Cleanser. Not only does this gentle cleanser effortlessly remove dirt, oil, and makeup, but it helps skin look softer and rejuvenated. It’s also formulated with IT Cosmetics’ powerful Anti-Aging Armour Rejuvenating Concentrate™ that helps restore moisture.
How to Use IT: After wetting skin, squeeze out a raspberry-sized amount and slowly massage it onto your face in gentle circles. Finally, rinse with warm water and pat your skin dry. Try not to rub or scrub, which can irritate your skin.
Step Two: Use a Gentle Exfoliator to Reveal Glowing Skin
Incorporating a treatment product into your nighttime anti-aging skincare routine can make a huge difference between dull skin and a complexion that’s enviably radiant.
Cue Hello Results Baby-Smooth Glycolic Acid Peel + Caring Oil, a peel so gentle you can use it every single evening—even if you have sensitive skin! This one-of-a-kind bi-phase treatment simultaneously provides gentle exfoliation and soothing hydration via carefully tailored levels of glycolic acid and nourishing botanical oils.
Caption: You’ll see long-term results when consistently using Hello Results Baby-Smooth Glycolic Acid Peel + Caring Oil. It’s clinically tested* for visible reduction of fine lines.
Not only will you enjoy the radiance this peel can create, but your skin will look and feel smoother and softer. In fact, in a consumer study*, 93% said skin looked smoother in just four weeks. Plus, unlike some peels, which can be irritating, this one won’t make your skin look red or irritated. It’s approved for even the most sensitive skin types!
How to Use IT: Gently shake the bottle back and forth about four times to blend the glycolic peel and oils. Next, dispense one to two pumps into the palm of your hand. Rub your hands together and gently press onto your skin. Wait a couple of minutes before moving on to the next step of this nighttime skincare routine.
Step Three: Finish Up With a Luxurious Moisturizer
Next up in this anti-aging skincare routine: a nighttime moisturizing superstar! Our favorite is Confidence in Your Beauty Sleep Night Cream, a dreamy, lavender-scented cream that helps you wake up to more beautiful, younger-looking skin.
The formula features IT Cosmetics' Rest & Restore Technology and helps visibly improve the five common signs of aging skin, including those pesky fine lines and wrinkles, dryness, dull skin, and loss of firmness.
How to Use IT: Apply generously onto your face using gentle, upward sweeping motions.
In the Morning
Don’t forget to follow your morning process, which should include a top-notch sunscreen. You can think of SPF as a bit of insurance on all that hard work you put into your nighttime skincare routine. Next, reach for a product that’s infused with SPF, like the award-winning** CC+ Cream with SPF 50+. In addition to creating flawless-looking, radiant skin, it protects your skin from the sun with an SPF 50+ physical sunscreen and treats skin to a hydrating anti-aging serum.
