Why you can’t leave your Makeup on at Night :: Professional Skincare Tips

Friday, May 18th, 2012

Each and every morning, millions of women apply makeup. But how many of these women actually remove their makeup each and every night?

Sometimes we forget to remove our makeup. Sometimes we are just too worn out after a long day of work, chasing our children, and keeping up with the house. And sometimes we just choose not to remove our makeup. After all, it is not important, right? Wrong!

The Importance of Removing Makeup Every Night

  1. While we sleep, our bodies naturally eliminate toxins through the pores. If you fail to remove your makeup at night, your pores may be too clogged to allow this natural detoxification to take place.
  2. Makeup, to a certain extent, can be a drying agent. Failing to remove your makeup at night can lead to dry, irritated skin. This is also why it’s so important to wear a moisturizing night cream – like Plantogen® Overnight Stress Repair – to allow your skin to recover from an entire day with makeup on.
  3. Skin regenerates three times faster at night than during the day, with cellular renovation activity reaching a peak between 2am and 4am. Failing to remove your makeup at night can hinder this regeneration.
  4. If you do not regularly remove your makeup at night, it may cause breakouts. It can also cause you to become increasingly prone to infections and bacteria.
  5. When makeup becomes impacted into your facial pores, it makes them look larger and more noticeable.

Leaving your makeup on once in a while shouldn’t hurt. Just don’t make a habit out of it.

Makeup Myths and Legends

Skin Care Questions Answered: Is a night product really necessary?

Friday, May 11th, 2012

Time and time again, we at Plantogen are asked the same question: “Is a night product really a necessary part of my daily skincare regimen?” And time and time again, we answer, “YES!”

Taking proper care of your skin before bed is just as important as taking care of your skin during the day (perhaps even more important!). This is because your skin undergoes a lot of wear and tear throughout the day. Everything you do affects your skin, from preparing food and washing the dishes to doing the laundry, playing with your children, and everything in between, including exposure to the sun and wind.

These external factors, combined with time and genetics, play a major role in the aging process. But you do not have to just sit there and take it; you can fight back!

Benefits of a Nighttime Skincare Product

•  The best way to prevent skin damage and premature skin aging is by maintaining a proper skin care routine, which includes nighttime skincare.

•   Helps repair damaged, aged skin.

•  Using a nighttime skincare product as early as age 25 helps slow the natural effects of aging.

•  Nighttime skincare products help fight free radicals, one of the major causes of skin aging.

•  Nighttime skincare products have been known to be more effective than day creams.

•  Skin regenerates three times faster at night than during the day, with cellular renovation activity reaching a peak between 2am and 4am.

 

Plantogen® Recommended Nighttime Skincare Regimen

1.  Cleanse your face, like Plantogen® Purifying Cleanser for Normal/Dry: Remove any traces of make-up off your face using a make-up remover and wash your face using a mild cleanser.

2. Use a toner, like Plantogen® Toner for Normal/Dry: Remove all traces or remaining dirt and make-up remover which can still be found on the face after washing.

3. Apply a moisturizing night cream, like Plantogen® Hydrating Moisturiser for Normal/Dry: Allow the skin to be deeply moisturized so the skin can regain it’s youthful appearance and elasticity.

4. Finish with Plantogen® Overnight Stress Repair: Help relieve the stresses of that day and improve the appearance of tired, stressed skin. Apply every night and wake up to refreshed, younger looking skin

Proper nighttime skin care can help improve the skins appearance and help you fight off those dreaded natural signs of aging!

Benefits of Using a Night Use Product

Plantogen Overnight Stress Relief

Throughout the day, our bodies undergo a tremendous amount of stress. From getting the kids ready for school in the morning and scrambling to find the time to get ourselves ready, to coming home after a long day of work to cleaning and cooking…we barely have time to breathe. By the time night rolls around, we want to do little more than just fall into bed and drift off into a deep sleep.

But nighttime is the perfect time to renew and refresh both the mind and body.

While most of us have our daytime skincare down to a science, many completely neglect nighttime skincare. However, it is during the night that our bodies and, most importantly, our skin regenerate. In fact, skin regenerates three times faster at night than during the day, with cellular renovation activity reaching a peak between 2am and 4am.

Because of this, it is important to help boost this reparative activity. This is where night use products, like nighttime creams, can really come in handy.

The Role of Night Use Products

If you are looking to moisturize, a day cream will work just fine. But if you want to help repair damaged, aged skin, a night cream is a must.

  • Applying night cream as early as age 25 helps to slow down the effects of aging.
  • The main benefit of nighttime skincare products is their ability to fight free radicals, repair damage caused during the day, and fight the outward signs of aging.
  • Anti-aging night creams have been known to be more effective than day creams.

Plantogen’s Overnight Stress Repair

After a thorough cleansing and exfoliation, applying Plantogen’s Overnight Stress Repair can help relieve the stresses of that day and improve the appearance of tired, stressed skin. A rich cream with Manuka Honey, Lecithin, Chamomile extract, Vitamin C and Retinol, Overnight Stress Repair helps improve the appearance of tired, stressed skin.

How to Use: Use every night after cleansing. It is rich and heavy for big moisture and a repair boost to tired skin
