Our balm’s intense and indulgent formula is created to refresh and moisturise your skin as you sleep, helping you on your journey to a healthier, more radiant appearance. From discussing tips by skincare experts to understanding its main ingredients, this article can help you unlock the full potential of our night balm and maximise its benefits.
Understanding the Benefits of an Intensive Night Balm
In this fast-paced environment, our skin has to endure exposure to external stress, pollutants, and the rough and tumble of daily living. It’s no wonder that so many of us struggle with dehydrated, flaky skin. However, night-time is a crucial moment when our skin can regenerate, rejuvenate, and heal. That’s why an intensive night balm can help our skin as it repairs and acts as a catalyst in its repair process. So, a night balm can support and enhance the skin as it heals by offering added nutrients, antioxidants, and moisture.
Another crucial benefit of an intensive night balm is the fact that it restores moisture to dry skin by providing intense hydration. For example, our balm is full of nourishing botanicals that create an emollient shield around your skin, locking in hydration through the night. As a result, it helps you awaken with skin that feels more plump, supple, and beautifully hydrated.
Additionally, using an intensive balm can lead to more revitalised and resilient skin. This is because the night balm’s intensive nature allows it to deliver a concentrated amount of natural ingredients to the skin, which nourishes it from the inside. The vitamins, natural oils and plant extracts in our intensive balm work in harmony to refresh dull and dry skin, helping it improve its tone, texture and luminosity. That’s why using a night balm regularly can lead to a healthier- looking complexion and softer skin all around.
How to Incorporate an Intensive Night Balm into Your Skincare Routine
Our Intensive Night Balm’s carefully crafted formula is infused with potent ingredients and scientific expertise to provide your skin with the ultimate night-time nourishment. So, what’s the best way to incorporate it into your daily routine? Here are our suggestions for a simple skincare routine for dry skin:
1. Use a moisturising cleanser: cleansing is an essential first step before applying moisturiser or balms, as it helps to remove dirt, makeup and bacteria that build up during the day. However, some cleansers contain harsh ingredients that can irritate the skin or lead to dehydration. So, I recommend opting for a gentle cleanser that contains some moisturising ingredients to clean and hydrate your skin.
2. Exfoliation: exfoliating once or twice a week after cleansing can help to remove flakes and roughened skin, leading to a smoother tone and texture. Again, it’s best to choose a mild exfoliant if you have very dry or sensitive skin, as these are less likely to cause inflammation or worsen dryness.
3. Pat your skin dry: use a soft cloth to gently pat your skin dry rather than rubbing or scrubbing it. This will ensure that you don’t exacerbate dry patches or flakiness and should prevent your skin from becoming red and irritated after cleansing.
4. Apply a toner: using a toner can help to balance out your skin’s pH levels, which can be disturbed by daily activities, wearing makeup and using certain cleansers. Plus, applying toner can also make your skin more receptive to moisturisers, oils and balms.
5. Apply the intensive night balm: gently massage the intensive balm into all the areas that need it. Our balm is suitable for facial regions like the lips, as well as other drier body parts like the knees and elbows.
Applying the Intensive Night Balm for Best Results
As the name suggests, our night balm is a potent, intense formula for dry skin. So, to get the best results and maximise its potential, it’s important to understand what type of skin you have, and which parts are the driest. For instance, if you have oily or combination skin, it might be best to avoid putting large amounts on your face, which may produce excessive natural oils at night. Still, you might notice that areas like your lips, even though the rest of your face is oilier. If this is the case, apply a smaller amount of balm to your lips overnight to target this area.
Apply a generous amount of our intensive balm to cracked and dehydrated patches, especially around the hands, fingernails, elbows, and knees. Then, massage it in circular motions to ensure it’s spread evenly for maximum absorption while you sleep. You can also massage the balm into your face, arms, legs, and torso if these areas are particularly dry and allow it to sink in overnight. Once you’ve finished with the balm, store it in a dry, cool place.
Even though I recommend using it at night, this luxurious balm is also suitable for daytime use and can give those extra dry patches a boost of moisture whenever needed.
Tips and Tricks from Skincare Experts for Maximising the Benefits
Professional dermatologists and skincare experts also suggest incorporating certain tips and tricks to prevent skin from becoming dehydrated and gaining optimal results from balms and moisturisers. To begin with, one simple way to get the most out of your intensive balm is to apply it regularly. Being consistent is crucial if you want to improve your skin’s overall well- being, and putting on your balm each night will have a better effect on extremely dry patches of skin. Another tip that experts put forward is applying balms and creams after showering or bathing, which can promote better moisture retention. Further, wearing protective clothing like gloves can protect our skin from chapping, cracking, and flaking during the colder months.
Lastly, health researchers recommend adding moisture to your home environment via a humidifier to prevent your skin from drying up indoors. It can be especially important to do this during winter when the air is often drier due to indoor heating. By doing these things alongside using a night balm, many have benefited from more moisturised, nourished skin and less rough and dry areas.
