If you’ve noticed your skin looking less than perfect, fatigued and irritated, it could be that you’re not getting your beauty sleep! Dermatologist Jeanine Downie is offering some nighttime tips to help get a good night’s sleep, take advantage of our body’s renewal process and wake up to clearer, healthier skin!
Dr. Downie recommends:
- No matter how tired you are before bed, take a moment to gently cleanse off your makeup and debris that accumulates on your skin during the day (Mom was right!).
- Moisturize your face and neck with a good night cream. AVEENO Ultra-Calming® Nourishing Night Cream has been clinically shown to help reduce the appearance of red, dry skin in 1 week.
- Try to get 7 – 8 hours of quality sleep at night to give skin time to fully restore itself. Before you go to bed, try to do things that relax you, like having a cup of decaf tea. I try to turn off my iPad/electronics an hour before I go to bed so that I can really relax.
I’ve been a fan of AVEENOPositively Radiant Intensive Night Cream (review) in the past, so when I received a sample of new AVEENO Ultra-Calming® Nourishing Night Cream, I was anxious to try it. It’s a light formulation, oil and fragrance-free, and gentle enough for everyday use on sensitive skin. The addition of ACTIVE NATURALS® Oat and Calming Feverfew® helps to soothe red and irritated dry skin. It really feels luxurious, and for my combination skin, I like that it moisturizes without feeling heavy or greasy.
You can find AVEENO Ultra-Calming® Nourishing Night Cream in ULTA Beauty, and in other drug/discount stores that carry AVEENO products.
