Most us like to take a bath and shower at nighttime before retiring for the day to decompress, wash off energies we picked up during the day, clean our aura and our bodies. Then of course we have a routine that we follow post our bathing experience and it involves lathering up in oils or creams. Using creams at night is not a very good idea. Our skin is alive and it has its own rhythm and it regenerates itself every 28 days.
“Less is more”, definitely holds true in this case. During the night as we sleep our metabolism and respiration slow down and it is during this time that most of the repair and renew take place for the skin and other organs, such as liver, kidneys, digestive system. As you already may know skin is one of three major pathways that body uses to releases toxins such as metabolic impurities that are the direct result from the digestive process. How this toxins get released through skin… well through thousands of dermal pores. So, it is essential to keep pores clean, and open so the detoxification can take place. SO the less we use on the skin at night time the better, keep those passages open!
What is good to use at night, after cleaning your face – spraying hydrosol followed by a facial oil such as argan, rosehip, tamanu… depending on your skin type with essential oils, which in turn help with cellular regeneration. This mix of oil and water will mimic your natural sebum and will still allow your skin to breathe.
