I’m sure we’ve all lost count how many times we’ve heard the age old advice,”Don’t sleep in makeup!” There’s many reasons for that though. For one, makeup can clog your pores and sleeping in your beat face can cause some serious breakouts–even acne. Secondly, your skin repairs and replenishes itself as you sleep so it’s best to give your skin room to breathe and do its magic simply by washing your face. Once you get removing your makeup every night down to a science it’s time to beef up your nightly skincare routine to really give your skin a helping hand at recharging itself at night.
One of the best products you can add to your nightly skincare routine is a good, hydrating night cream. Every night, skin works to create fresh, new skin cells and push them to the top layer for a clear, glowing complexion. There’s lots of things that can slow down that process though. Factors like lack of sleep, aging, an unhealthy diet and more can make the overnight recharging process a struggle causing dull, dry skin that looks flaky and uneven while causing noticeable signs of aging. That’s why we all need a good night cream. No matter how young or old you are.
Philosophy recently expanded the popular Renewed Hope in a Jar line to include a new night cream designed to deeply hydrate while gently exfoliating to give your skin a helping hand. The new Renewed Hope in a Jar Overnight Recharging & Refining Moisturizer is formulated with Asian fruit extracts for hydration and improved microcirculation as well as a triple blend of alpha hydroxy acids to gently exfoliate and refine the texture of skin by reducing the appearance of pores and fine lines. I’ve been using the Renewed Hope in a Jar Overnight Recharging & Refining Moisturizer every night for over a month now and I’m quite pleased with the results.
The Renewed Hope in a Jar Overnight Recharging & Refining Moisturizer has a whipped, creamy texture that’s lightweight with a soft, clean scent that absorbs very quickly and deeply hydrates my thirsty skin without feeling greasy or heavy. Once it sinks in, my skin feels very soft, supple and smooth. Not tight or dry like I was expecting considering it’s formulated with alpha hydroxy acids. Nope! In fact, when I wake up in the morning my skin feels just as soft, hydrated and smooth as it did the night before.
What I really love about the Renewed Hope in a Jar Overnight Recharging & Refining Moisturizer, though, is the way it gently exfoliates my skin. Whenever I feel a breakout coming on, I usually whip out my Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber Gel Mask to leave on overnight but some nights I’m just too lazy. However, the Renewed Hope in a Jar Overnight Recharging & Refining Moisturizer and its blend of AHAs help keep my naughty blemishes in check helping them fade quickly and keep them from reappearing. It also seems to be helping a lot with the fine lines around my mouth. They’re much less noticeable to the point where you can only see them when I smile. Which is exactly the way it should be!
I know most people think that overnight creams are reserved for older gals fighting signs of aging but the truth is that anyone can benefit from a solid night cream. Whether you’re fighting fine lines, large pores or just want a smoother, more clear complexion, you too should give the Philosophy Renewed Hope in a Jar Overnight Recharging & Refining Moisturizer a try. You can check it out at your local Ulta, Sephora or department store before you commit.
