A simple, yet consistent, bedtime beauty ritual is key to waking up with radiant skin. Let us walk you through our simple five step routine that is certain to give you gorgeous, glowing skin in the morning!
1. Turn off your smart phone
Check your iPhone for the last time that evening. Respond to any emails, Facebook notifications etc. Be really thorough, as you are not going to look at it again until tomorrow morning. Once you’re done, turn it off. Or, at the very least, switch it to silent.
2. Cleanse, treat and hydrate your skin
This is the fun part, and also the most crucial.
Some really good stuff happens to our skin while we are sleeping. Our cells are repaired and rejuvenated from any free radical damage caused by things like environmental pollution and UV radiation.
Ogee’s hydraganics skincare range incorporates a simple 3 step routine which optimizes your body’s natural healing process, delivering a clean slate for your cells to work with while feeding it with potent beneficial nutrients.
Step 1: Cleanse. Lay one of Ogee’s Daily Facial Cleansing Cloths over your face, applying light pressure to transfer the cleansing lotion from the cloth to your skin. Fold the cloth in half and, using the other side, gently wipe the makeup, dirt and grime from your face, eyes, neck and décolletage.
Step 2: Treat. Using your fingertips, gently tap Ogee’s Seeds of Youth Serum around first signs of wrinkles, focusing on your forehead, under-eye and smile. Then apply to décolletage and neck, beginning at collarbone and sweeping in upward massaging strokes.
Step 3: Hydrate. Finally, apply Ogee’s Jojoba Restore Facial Oil evenly all over your face, décolletage and neck for instantly moisturized, balanced and conditioned skin, and Ogee’s Sculpted Lip Oil to hydrate, soften and subtly plump up your lips.
3. Zen out
With gorgeously cleansed and hydrated skin, now it’s time to remove the day’s stresses from your body. Dim the lights or light a candle to reduce strain on your eyes, and consequent puffiness and dark circles in the morning. Mindfully take a moment to be grateful, focusing only on the positive, no matter how small or insignificant. Then, relax.
4. Drink water
You’re almost ready for bed now. Have a quick drink of water to help flush toxins while you’re sleeping. For an extra boost, add a teaspoon of a probiotic powder containing beneficial bacteria and nutrients for healthy, glowing skin.
5. Get your beauty sleep
A good night’s sleep is the best anti-aging remedy that exists on the planet! Studies show that lack of sleep can cause dull skin, wrinkles and fine lines, not to mention droopy eyelids, dark under eye circles, and swollen eyes.
So go to bed early and at the same time every night. Aim for approximately 8 hours of uninterrupted sleep. And resist the urge to check your iPhone before you sneak under the covers!
There you have it, our simple 5 step bedtime beauty ritual. By investing in your own self-care at the end of each day, you will truly start to notice a change. Not only will you sleep better and feel more rested the next day, you will wake up with the healthiest, most radiant skin of your life.
