Apart from making healthy organic life choices, incorporating a night time skincare regime into our daily lives, will go a long way in keeping the skin looking healthy and glowing.

Star your regime by thorough cleansing and do not forget to use a toner, suggest experts

Shankar Prasad, Founder, Plum, and Megha Sabhlok, Brand Director, Just Herbs, have given some inputs:

* Cleanse: Going to bed with make-up on is the worst thing you can do to your skin. It leads to chemical accumulation, blocked pores and reduces the ability of skin to absorb nutrients. Make sure that you use a gentle cleanser first to remove make-up and grime. If required, follow up with a foaming face wash.

While the idea of cleansing the grime on your face with castor oil might seem unappealing to you, however, it not only can draw out the dirt from your pores and purge, it also has anti-inflammatory properties. People with all skin types can benefit from this method.

The best natural cleansing technique is to use one-third castor oil mixed with two-thirds of any oil of your choice; almond, sunflower seed, virgin olive or any other natural, organic oil. Massage the oil gently onto your face with firm strokes focusing on your problem areas

Use a soft washcloth soaked in warm water to cover your face. The warmth allows the oiled pores to soften and open up in order to gently release the toxins and impurities.

Gently wipe without scrubbing and repeat again. This should remove the oil along with the dead skin cells, bacteria and impurities from your face leaving you with deeply cleansed glowing skin.

* Tone: This helps reduce pore size, balance skin pH and remove any leftover dirt and make-up still left. Toning will further nourish and hydrate your skin leaving it supple and refreshed.

Rose water tops the list for its fragrant refreshing appeal and its universality in suiting all skin types.

Refrigerate a good organic brand and apply all over face and neck using a cotton ball. Green Tea with a few drops of tea tree oil makes for an antibacterial toner that especially suits oily skin types.

* Anti-ageing serums: Address your anti-ageing concerns with elixir serums as they nourish and restore the natural glow and youthfulness to tired, ageing and pigmented skin.

Plant polyphenols, carotenoids and flavonoids present in these serums slow-down skin ageing process. Once applied, let your skin fully absorb the serum for some time while you rest.

* Massage with night cream or gel: Begin by spreading it across the forehead, down the nose, across the cheeks, the chin, neck and towards the chest. Gently massage the cream in upward strokes and circular motions by using your fingertips. This helps in evenly distributing the moisture all over your facial skin, increases blood circulation and minimises puffiness.

* The facial oil: Facial oils repair and replenish the facial skin while you sleep. Apply 4-5 drops of facial oil on fingertips and gently massage it in circular motions from nose towards ears while applying horizontally, and always against the gravity while applying vertically.

It is usually applied after the gel/cream as it helps seal-in the moisture. (IANS)

The skin repairs itself from the day’s stress during the night, so it is necessary to give your skin equal attention before you go to bed so that it looks rejuvenated the next morning.

Aanchal Budhiraja, Beauty Trainer at Innisfree India and Anuj Mishra, Education Manager at Kiehl’s India, have shared the night-time beauty regime to follow:

* Double cleansing: This is highly recommended. Double cleansing consists of first cleaning with a cleanser such as cleansing oil or cleansing cream. This cleanses oil-based impurities such as make-up and pollutants. Also, follow it up with a cleansing foam to remove any left over impurities before sleeping. The motive here is deep cleansing while being gentle on the skin.

* Exfoliate: Exfoliate with scrub or gommage peel or a clay mask, depending on the skin type, 2 to 3 times to get rid of dead cells. Exfoliating your skin can really help in rejuvenating your skin. Exfoliate skin at least twice a week using the appropriate products according to the skin type.

* Toning: Use a gentle hydrating toner according to skin type to refine pores and restore PH level. Always use a good toner as it is a very important step and prepares your skin for the next step of your regimen by minimising pores to the normal size.
