We all want to wake up in morning with a picture perfect look, but reality is something different.

After spending a whole day with various activities, taking caring of thyself seems pretty much tiresome. But a proper nighttime skin care routine is as important as to stay healthy and happy. Spending 15-20 minutes in total can be beneficial for your skin in so many ways. Here learn some basic skin care steps.

Must remove makeup

Often we use makeup for special occasions. But it is very important to remove all makeup properly before going to bed. Most of us are guilty of not maintaining this rule. But a single night of skipping removing makeup can cause a lot of skin problems. Especially overnight makeups lead to bacteria inhabitation, which lead to pimples, blackheads, and rash and so on. It’s really important for our skin to breathe properly, which get blocked by makeup. That’s why a proper cleansing is a must thing to remove all makeup.

Eye cream to prevent wrinkles

After cleansing face properly moisturize your skin with a moisturizer. But that’s not all. Don’t forget to use an eye cream to preventing signs of aging. As the skin around our eye area is very delicate, it can easily get dehydrated and flaky. Eye cream will help to reduce the pressure of eye area skin by smoothing the skin. Plus eye cream can combat dark circles and puffiness also.    

Use a suitable hand cream

Our hands are as important as our face. Thought we frequently use our hands in many purposes, we took very little care to them. Before bed time take some time to moisturize your hand with a hand cream. Make sure your hand cream contains lactic acid and other beneficial elements that can treat dryness of hands. And for hand nails chose almond oil. This nut oil will help to strength nails and give them a fine shine.

Petroleum jelly for feet

Our feet can be most neglected parts of our body. Walking all day with or without shoes left the in pretty bad condition with rough skin and cracked heels. Use unscented petroleum jelly to each foot and give a little massage. It will help to heal skin dullness.
