Let’s be truthful to ourselves, how many of us really pay attention to our night-time skincare routine? Not many, I bet. However, having a structured skincare routine for the night is of utmost importance. Let us tell you why. Every night when you hit the bed, to allow your body to recover from all the exhaustion it’s been through— your skin does the exact same thing. It recovers from a variety of external aggressors, whether that’s sun damage, pollution or bacteria.

Skincare concerns like ageing, hyper-pigmentation and hormonal acne to name a few are aplenty amongst us, no? One of the best ways to deal with these concerns is, to begin with, targeted treatments. Hello, serums! Facial serums are infused with power-packed formulas that either include active ingredients or potent essential oils, all of which tackle specific concerns. Now when we talk about night serums, one must know that these products are formulated to help your skin rejuvenate and repair itself while you’re asleep, all whilst dealing with a plethora of skincare issues. What most night serums are created to do is boost the collagen production in your skin while you’re getting some beauty sleep in, so that you wake up with plump and radiant skin.

Here are a few night serums that make this process so much easier—

The Immortelle Reset Serum also strives a little extra hard to tackle symptoms of damage caused by stress and environmental stressors too.
