We understand the importance of an evening beauty routine, a key part of your daily regimen that allows your skin to repair and rejuvenate overnight, while giving you a moment to ‘switch off’ from the day. Let our full guide take you on a step-by-step tour, creating a truly effective night face care routine. Step into a relaxing spa-like dream with us…


The Importance of a Night Time Skincare Routine

A dedicated night-time skincare routine is not just a treat, it's a must-have. As your body rests, your skin undergoes a natural restoration process, from the day's environmental impacts like sun exposure and pollution. By committing to a regular night-time skincare routine, you can support your skin's rest and repair process, aiding it to rejuvenate more effectively. This period of rest allows your more active products, like serums, to work their magic without any interruptions or the usual habit of touching your face!

From washing away dirt and makeup from the day to applying targeted treatments and moisturizers, a night routine for skin care offers numerous benefits. It keeps your skin clean, curbs breakouts, and using products specifically designed for night use can provide intense hydration and repair damaged skin cells, leading to a more youthful and radiant complexion.

While you sleep, increased blood circulation to your skin allows for better product absorption. This means that the active ingredients in your night-time skincare products can penetrate deeper into the skin, enhancing their effectiveness. Make your night-time skincare routine a priority and wake up to healthier, radiant skin every morning.

Your Step-by-Step Guide to the Perfect Night Time Skincare Routine

For a glowing complexion, an all-rounded night face care routine is key. This guide will take you through the essentials of an effective skincare regimen that will leave your skin feeling and looking its best.


Cleanser: Every skincare routine should begin with a cleanser, and in the evening, we always recommend a double cleanse. This can be with the same cleanser or something that has a different texture, like a balm for the first cleanse, followed by a cream or oil for the second cleanse.  

IN THE BEGINNING Deep Cleansing Melt is a perfect first cleanse, nourishing and effortlessly lifting away makeup, oils, and impurities. The balm breaks down into a nourishing oil that you remove with a damp muslin cloth. Follow up with DUAL ACT Purifying Cleansing Lotion a brilliant second cleanser to help remove any last traces of makeup and give your skin balance and glow.


Toner: This step is often overlooked, but your toner can help balance the skin and its pH levels. We love to use a toner to refresh our skin and deliver extra benefits you might have otherwise missed!  

TONING ESSENCE Balancing Tonic Mist can be used as a hydration mist or spritzed onto a cotton pad and swept over the skin. For extra exfoliating action, GLOWCOLIC Resurfacing Toner is a great option in a night-time skincare routine as it lifts away dead skin cells, causing uneven skin tone and dullness. For a soothing, calming option, BE QUIET Soothing Milky Toner includes prebiotic biolin, alpine rose, and niacinamide with brilliant anti-inflammatory benefits.

Serum: This is your ‘treat’ stage. A serum is something you pick based on your skin concerns and something you actively want to improve in your skin. For example, someone who experiences dullness would love our LET’S CONCENTRATE Skin Glowing Serum, featuring vitamin C to brighten and hydrating sodium hyaluronate.


Overnight Mask: While your skin is resting overnight, an overnight mask is the perfect way to indulge your skin and add in those extra ingredients your skin craves. Naturally, our skin loses moisture throughout the day, so an overnight mask like QUENCH Deep Hydration Mask delivers extra nourishment, so by morning it’s plumper, firmer, and brighter overall.


Moisturizer: This is a great alternative to an overnight mask, a rich moisturizer that helps restore hydration levels and leaves your skin soft and smooth. REPOSE Relaxing Night Cream is our night-time moisturizer of choice, fusing brilliant skincare benefits with soothing essential oils to help you switch off. No wonder it’s our best-seller and known as ‘a good night’s sleep in a jar’!

The Science Behind Effective Skincare Ingredients

To achieve a glowing complexion, it's crucial to understand the science behind skincare ingredients. Each ingredient, from sodium hyaluronate and biolin to niacinamide and natural Mediterranean extracts, plays a vital role in your night routine for skin care.

Sodium hyaluronate is a hydration hero, drawing and locking moisture into the skin. Including this ingredient in your routine can help diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Niacinamide, or vitamin B3, helps regulate sebum production, making it suitable for all skin types. This versatile ingredient also helps minimize pore appearance, even out skin tone, and strengthen the skin's barrier.

Natural Mediterranean ingredients, such as botanical extracts and essential oils, provide potent skincare benefits. They can soothe inflammation, promote collagen production, and impart a healthy glow to your skin. We also include a fusion of aromatherapy essential oils that help calm, relax, and soothe the skin and mind, creating an experience not just for your skin but your overall mood too.

At TEMPLESPA, our night-time skincare products blend scientifically backed ingredients with natural extracts to deliver the best results.


Creating a Routine Tailored to Your Skin Type

A flawless complexion requires a customized skincare routine. Understanding your skin type and choosing suitable products is crucial to address your unique concerns and deliver the best results.

Identifying your skin type is the first step. Whether you have normal, oily, dry, combination, or sensitive skin, we have a product to address your concerns. For instance, normal skin types may benefit from a gentle cleanser, toner, and moisturizer. Oily skin types may find oil-free cleansers and lightweight moisturizers beneficial, while dry skin types may require hydrating cleansers and rich moisturizers.

Furthermore, treating specific skin concerns is key. Whether it's acne, aging, hyperpigmentation, dullness, or other issues, incorporating serums, masks, and targeted treatments can effectively address these concerns.


Bonus Additions for Your Night Time Routine

Consider using a silk pillowcase to minimize sleep lines, a hydrating lip balm for soft lips, and a diffuser or room mist with calming essential oils for a spa-like ambiance. These special extras can elevate your self-care ritual and help you achieve healthier, glowing skin.
