No matter how much you try to protect your skin, these catastrophic elements won’t spare you and make your face dry and dull.

It helps the skin to heal overnight as you rest and sleep. Not only it provides the needful nutrients to the skin but it also rejuvenates it so that you don’t get skin issues due to poor skin care. In this article, we have compiled some skincare tips given by Dr. Nivedita Dadu, Dermatologist, Founder and Chairman of Dr. Nivedita Dadu's Dermatology Clinic. Do follow them.

1. Remove your makeup first before going to bed

In Dr. Nivedita’s words, “Taking care of your skin should be an equal opportunity as far as timing is concerned. At night, your skin repairs itself from the stresses of the day. That means night-time skincare rituals can be absorbed more easily. This step is a must for those who apply makeup.”

2. Cleansing is necessary

The dirt and dust get accumulated on the pores of the skin which is important to be expelled. Thus, the second step should be the deep cleaning of the skin. Use a herbal soap or facewash and thoroughly wash your face so that no dirt particle is left.

3. Exfoliation is also important

After double cleansing, if your skin is feeling dull exfoliate your skin, Exfoliating can help remove dead skin cells to promote a glowing, smooth complexion.

4. Apply a hydrating moisturizer

As you are done with cleaning, it is time to apply a moisturizer as it helps to rejuvenate the health of the skin. The moisturizer doesn’t clog the pores of the skin and provides intense hydration without irritating your skin. You may instead use skin serum as it improves the texture and tone of the complexion of the skin. Consult a dermatologist to find what’s better for your skin.

5. Don’t forget your lips

Your lips need equal care and lip care is a part of skincare. Apply a nourishing lip balm on your lips to provide them with the necessary nourishment. This step also helps to maintain soft and pink lips. You won’t suffer from dry or chapped lips problem anymore.

6. Apply an eye cream

Dermatologists emphasize much on the use of eye cream regularly. They provide the thin skin around your eyes with a targeted treatment. It boosts hydration and helps firm the skin to smooth fine lines and wrinkles.
