Why it's Important to Have a Morning and Night Skin Care Routine

Do you have a skin care regimen you follow twice daily? If not, keep reading to learn what you can do to keep your skin looking youthful.

Developing a skincare routine is an excellent way to keep your skin looking its best. Your skin has unique needs at different times of the day so it’s important to have a routine for both morning and night. In addition to a good skincare routine, another way to care for your skin is to see an expert regularly. Dr. Alex, the experienced cosmetic surgeon at A E Skin med spa in Encino, CA, provides several skincare services. Dr. Alex can help you develop effective morning and night skincare routines to help you maintain healthy, vibrant skin.

Developing Skin Care Routines for Morning and Night

Having separate skincare routines for morning and night is important for the health of your skin. A morning skincare routine helps prepare your skin for the day and should include steps to protect your skin from damaging elements, such as the sun. A nighttime routine is important for cleansing the skin of impurities it was exposed to during the day and promoting rejuvenation while you sleep.

Everyone’s morning and nighttime skincare routines might differ based on their skin type and individual needs. You might also need different cleansers or moisturizers for morning and night. Dr. Alex can evaluate your skin and make recommendations for your skincare routines that are best for you.

An example of a morning skincare routine might include the following steps:

  1. Washing the face with a gentle cleanser
  2. Exfoliating the skin with a gentle scrub
  3. Applying serums or acne treatments right after cleansing, if needed
  4. Applying moisturizer with sunscreen to the face
  5. For people who wear makeup, it should be applied last

Your night skincare routine is likely to include similar steps as your morning routine, although the products you use might differ. It is important to cleanse your skin at night to remove pore-clogging impurities from the day. However, Dr. Alex might recommend a different cleanser for the night. A nighttime serum or treatment could be applied to the skin next and then followed with a night moisturizer to help the skin replenish while sleeping.

A general skincare tip that applies to both the morning and night routines is to be gentle on the skin and to use products that are gentle, but still effective. Dr. Alex can recommend skincare products in Encino, CA, for morning and night to help you maintain healthy, clear skin.

Your skin has different needs throughout the day and night, which is why it’s important to have both a morning and night skincare routine. Dr. Alex can recommend specific products and services to help you maintain healthier skin. For skincare help in Encino, CA, call A E Skin at (818) 835-1833.
