With so many extra hours of darkness this time of the year, I believe you shou take advantage of these extra hours for skin repair...You may wonder why we create so many products for sleeping...including our Retinol night recovery and repair mask..and our brand new "Lip Mask"
During the day skin cells are in defense mode, working to protect themselves from UV exposure and free radical damage. When the sun goes down, your mind and body switch into an active regeneration mode – repairing daytime damage and boosting the production of substances that protect and renew. Here’s what happens:
Melatonin, known for its antioxidant (a.k.a. anti-aging) properties, is produced at night.
Levels of the stress hormone cortisol fall during sleep, which helps skin repair daytime damage.
The body makes more collagen, which minimizes fine lines.
More human growth hormone is released, increasing muscle mass and strengthening skin.
SO Take advantage of the extra hours of darkness... and don't forget prior to applying these "targeted" skin care products... be sure to thoroughly cleanse your skin with our two step cleansing process, removing dirt debris and spent oils ...
