Q. I usually get lazy and neglect my skin at night. I’m starting to see this bad habit take its toll. What do you recommend for a simple p.m. skincare routine?
Dr. Linda Miles D.O.M. responds:
You’ve heard it before: get your beauty sleep! And, it’s true. A good night of sleep plus a basic nighttime skincare routine is the best way to look and feel better for the long haul. I know that is easier said than done, but think of it this way: nighttime is the best time for skin to naturally repair itself back to a healthy, youthful radiance. Benefit from this restorative process, and fight that sleepy urge to ignore your skin at night, with this simple skincare routine before you hit the sack. It should take no longer than two minutes, and trust me, it’s worth it!
