During the day your skin is busy protecting itself from harmful UV rays and activates a natural shield against them.
At night it has a chance to rest, but when you go to sleep your skin is far from snoozing; it’s busy restoring, renewing and balancing its own natural oils.
You can help your skin, before your head touches the pillow, by making sure you have gently removed the day’s muck. No scrubbing, polishing or astringents and resist the temptation to slap on layers of night cream.
If you feel the need to put anything on your face, all you need is four drops of good face oil. Face oil allows the skin to restore and breath.
Then close your eyes lie back and dream – simple!
