1. Protect Yourself
By allowing these products to work long hours in the dark, you maximize the benefits you can see by morning. But that doesn’t come for free: some nighttime skincare products can lead to slight skin sensitivity during daylight hours, so it’s important to extend a good skincare routine into the day ahead. “An SPF of 30 or higher is important in a daily morning skincare routine as it counteracts photo-aging and helps maintain your skincare regimen results,” Dr. Patel says. In the simplest of terms, you’re taking off old, dead skin at night, causing new, fresh skin to appear by morning, faster than it would on its own, so you need to do everything you can to protect that new skin out in the elements.
