Your Guide To Night Moisturiser

It’s during sleep that your skin cells enter an enhanced regeneration mode – an effective nighttime skin routine will ensure your skin is best prepared for the night ahead.

Why is night-time skin care so important?

Discover what happens to your skin as you catch up with some much needed shut-eye.

5 benefits of a proper nighttime skin routine

  • To give your skin the moisture it needs to stay hydrated overnight.
  • You’re not affected by UVA/UVB rays as you sleep, meaning you can focus on moisture rather than protection.
  • To unclog pores, preventing blemishes and an uneven complexion.
  • Products can sink in more easily overnight compared with the disturbances of the day.
  • You don’t drink water at night, so topical moisture is beneficial.

What happens to your skin as you sleep?

Getting enough shut-eye is a crucial part of any beauty routine because this is when the skin recovers and repairs itself. As you catch up on much-needed rest, your cells regenerate, replacing dead or damaged skin cells with fresh ones and reversing damage caused by free radicals throughout the day.

Part of the repair process involves producing collagen, which is responsible for keeping the skin plumper and less likely to wrinkle. The benefit: it will leave you with a glowing, healthy-looking complexion.

Applying an intensively hydrating moisturiser like NIVEA Express Hydration Body Lotion every evening will help skin cells to restore and regenerate as they should.

Pamper your skin

In the evening, you don’t have the same time restrictions you have in the morning, which means it’s a great opportunity to treat your skin as you relax and unwind in the shower. Try using a rich and indulgent oil like NIVEA Oil In Lotion Rose & Argan Oil to cleanse and care for your skin.

Moisturise all over

The best time to apply body moisturiser is straight after showering or bathing, as this is when the skin will absorb moisturizing ingredients better. Regular use of a body moisturiser like Express Hydration Body Lotion before bed will leave skin radiant and glowing.

Remove all traces of makeup

Removing all of your makeup at the end of the day is essential to avoid clogged pores, worsening of acne or skin irritations, not to mention the fact that a squeaky clean face will allow other skin care products to work more effectively.

It’s time for face care

Now apply your toner, serum, facial moisturiser, eye cream and any other face products you may use. These will work their magic as you get your beauty sleep and you can wake up to a smooth, healthy-looking face. 

Why you should always use night moisturiser

As you sleep, your body naturally loses moisture, which is why it’s so important to lock in the topical hydration before you go bed by applying an effective night moisturiser.

NIVEA Firming Body Lotion Q10 Plus is enriched with the advanced energy complex with coenzyme Q10, Creatine and L-Carnitine for an energised skin-feeling. Simply apply all over the body after your evening shower and look forward to silky smooth skin in the morning.



Treat your skin to a pressure point massage

Massaging the body’s pressure points is relaxing and therapeutic. Pamper your skin with a rich body oil as you improve circulation and relieve stress. NIVEA Firming Body Oil has a powerful formula that intensively moisturises and helps to improve the condition of your skin over time.
