Did you know that while you are sleeping is the BEST time to transform your skin? The reason behind it, is that while you are sleeping you are not exposed to free radicals (toxins, sun, debris, etc). You are in a dark room where your body is at rest, so products are a lot more effective.
Follow these 3 steps to have beautiful, radiant, glowing skin WHILE you sleep!
When I say deep cleanse I mean, DEEP cleanse! Doing that every night before bed is very important. Think about it, while you are out all day working, shopping, exercising, etc., you are bound to pick up dirt and debris on your skin. So before you go to bed, you definitely need to thoroughly wash all that away. I highly suggest using a Clarisonic Pro to help get rid of the daily grime. Great cleansers that work well in conjunction with the Clarisonic is the Alpha Cleanser by Stevens RX or Foaming Gel by Obagi. Also, 2-3 times a week you should exfoliate using a scrub. I recommend the Physical Cleansing Scrub by Nia24, since it is made with Spherical Jojoba beads to remove dead skin cells and increase circulation. You can purchase those on our online store www.TheStevensInstitute.com
Using a corrective product is key when prepping your skin to go to sleep. You are in a dark room where your body is at rest, so certain products are a lot more effective. The product I love for correction/prevention is Tri-Retinol Complex ES by Skin Medica. The reason why I choose this one over all other retinols is because it has 3 forms of Vitamin-A, it improves skin tone and texture, stimulates cellular turnover, helps control breakouts, and it reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Last but certainly not least, HYDRATE! Keeping your skin nice and hydrated is VERY important! The reason why it is so important is because after a long day of work your skin has the tendency to become dull and dry. This is where a great moisturizer should come into play. A wonderful, rich moisturizer is Intensive Recovery Complex by Nia24. Not only is it moisturizing, but it really improves people who have moderate to severe sun damage. Or if you are prone to having breakouts and you’re looking for more of a lightweight moisturizer then I would recommend the Therapeutic Moisturizer by Obagi.
