1. Your Skin Repairs Itself

While you're catching up on your rest, your skin is busy repairing the battlefield wounds of the day. Environmental foes like pollution and UV rays take a toll on your precious skin. It is during these hours of sleep that your cells are activated to mend and rejuvenate your tired skin. It's like a nightly skincare rescue mission where your skin is ready to face a new day with a fresh face. Adding a restorative serum to your PM routine will help your skin to return to its glory. Our 5% Vitamin F + Pro Ceramides Booster Serum helps strengthen and maintain the skin barrier, along with reducing acne, wrinkles and dryness.

2. Your Skin Produces Collagen

Wrinkes? Fine lines? Sagging? A regular sleeping schedule can fix all of this. When you’re fast asleep, your skin produces collagen, an essential protein that serves as a building block for your skin. This process peaks at night, ensuring your skin stays firm, resilient, and ready to defy the laws of ageing.

3. Your Skin Cells Regenerate

radiant ones. This helps reduce acne marks, scars and pigmentation as well as reduces discolouration and dullness. If you want to tackle any of these, add a Vitamin C serum in your night time routine. Our 10% Vitamin C+E+F Booster Serum will help you there. This multi-vitamin infusion deeply penetrates into the skin to accelerate the cell regeneration process and brighten your skin from within.

4. Your Skin Loses Moisture

As much as we wish for a flawless beauty sleep, there's a tiny catch – your skin loses moisture. It's like a subtle trade-off for all the other magical happenings. But fret not! You can still reverse this step by introducing a sleeping mask into your routine. Our Skin Quench Sleeping Crème provides 100 hours of hydration, thanks to the 11% Hydrating Actives and Pentavitin that prevent moisture loss and protects the barrier. It's like giving your skin a cozy blanket to retain its moisture and waking up with a soft, supple glow.

6. Your Skin Takes A Break From The Stress

During the daytime hustle and bustle, your skin is on the front lines, battling stress like a skincare warrior. But when the moon takes center stage, your skin gets a well-deserved break from the stressors of the day. It's like a spa retreat for your skin, free from the chaos of environmental pollutants, UV rays, and the lingering tension of daily life. So, while you're dreaming away, your skin is enjoying its own serene escape, waking up refreshed and ready to face the world again.

Bonus tip: While you are at it, don’t forget to use a makeup remover, like our Micellar Cleansing Water. This one removes your day’s impurities and makeup like a pro with its skin-friendly ingredients.
