How many skincare products should you apply before bedtime?

During the day, skincare acts as a protective barrier to shield your face from harmful pollutants and environmental factors found in the air.

Whereas at night the skincare works 'extra hard' to treat, rejuvenate and soothe the skin while you sleep. 

The experts said as you sleep moisturisers and other beneficial skincare products help support the body while it heals and reproduces cells.  

They also said you should approach your evening beauty regime in a 'considered and careful manner'.

In what order should you apply your skincare?

1. Cleanser

2. Toner

3. Serums

4. Eye cream

5. Spot treatments

6. Moisturiser

7. Retinol

8. Face oil

'It's important to choose the right products, and apply them in the right order, to ensure that you get the most out of your night time skincare routine,' they said.

They revealed it's completely 'up to you' to decide how you would like to 'build your routine' and what products work best for your skin type.

Some suggestions included using night serums for specific skin concerns, anti-aging products such as retinol, overnight masks and eye creams to target the delicate, thin skin under the eye.

'If you organise your routine correctly, each of the products will have time to sink in and be absorbed while you sleep,' they said.

It's recommended to complete your skincare routine at least an hour before going to bed to ensure the products have enough time to absorb into your skin. Desk: Asianet Online
