Night Routine For Blemished Skin

Blemisked skin is a texture on your skin caused by any dermatological issue. Common blemishes include pigmentation, whiteheads/blackheads, acne, and pimples. If you have been dealing with this for some time now, it is better to check with a skin specialist before starting a routine.

However, if you have already done so, here is how you can proceed with your nighttime skincare routine.

1. Double Cleansing

Firstly, you should never go to sleep without cleansing your skin by the end of the day, whether you went out, whether you applied makeup or not, or if you have any blemishes on your skin.

You need to make cleansing an everyday ritual. Plus, if you have blemishes, then you need to double cleanse. The first is an impurity-clearing face wash, preferably a foaming face wash. The next is a moisturizing face wash, which just washes the excess oil from your face.

Try to get salicylic acid in your cleansing ritual, as it is an active agent that can help your acne treatment.

2. Exfoliating

Exfoliation doesn’t have to be an everyday ritual because it will strip off the essential oil from your skin. However, when it comes to clearing the dead skin, it gives way to skin rejuvenation and cell building.

The types of exfoliation you can try for your blemished skin are:

  • Scrub with an active agent to treat your skin.
  • Chemical toner.
  • Clay mask.

At least once a week, have a longer night care routine to treat your skin deeply. This is good for the skin and relaxing on a Friday night when there is no worry about getting up the next morning.

3. Treat Your Blemishes

Once you are done with the cleansing part, it is time to treat your skin. Simply moisturizing is not enough because you need ingredients that can work on your skin overnight.

Some of the good ingredients you can start using to treat these blemishes are:

  • Serums.
  • Overnight masks.
  • Prescription creams.
  • Acne ointment.

You first apply these items before you seal the deal with a moisturizer.

4. Don’t Forget Your Moisturizer

Picking a moisturizer for your skin can be tricky when you have acne. You don’t want something that can dry your entire skin overnight, but also avoid something that can clog your pores due to product buildup. 

Now, going to sleep without moisturizer is never a good idea. It can produce excess oil when your skin starts drying over the night. Especially if it is winter, try to apply a lightweight moisturizer that can keep your skin hydrated.

Detox From Within!

Just external detox is not enough to get rid of acne. Before going to sleep, you could drink a tall glass of water. Then, get supplements and probiotics which can keep your skin and gut healthy and in good shape. A good amount of greens and antioxidants in your diet, so try to cut down on your sugar and Omega 6.
