1. Remove every bit or trace of makeup before you go to bed:

  • Gently wipe your skin clean until there is no further residue
  • Choose a toner that will soothe the skin after cleaning. This will make your face ready for the application of moisturizer

2. Use an overnight cream / serum: 

  • Apply moisturizer or whichever night cream you desire to depend on your skin type. You can use nice creams such as a brightening agent, a moisturizer, an anti-aging cream, a blemish remover or hydrating serum
  • It is a great concept to use products at night as the skin is at rest and very relaxed
  • It is less likely you will touch or wipe your face during the night letting products work their best

SCAR REMOVAL agents: using topical lighteners or scar removal creams overnight should only be used up to three times a week. The high chemical and steroid components can dry out your skin. Use for the remaining nights a good moisturizer.
