Much like our closet, most of us put all our energy into our day skincare. It makes sense, considering that’s what you wear all day and what everyone sees. However, it seems we’re missing a trick. The time of day when skin is most receptive to skincare is at night. As we sleep, skin cells ready themselves to repair all the damage experienced throughout the day from aggressors like stress, pollution and sun exposure. To capitalize on this natural renewal process, applying products when skin is already repairing will maximize results. Think of products as the energy boost skin craves when it’s working overtime.
That is why here at ELEMIS, we have launched the ultimate night treatment for skin. Peptide⁴ Night Recovery Cream-Oil works like a reset button to skin cells. The reason why is because the body is controlled by the circadian rhythm (a biological clock) which controls everything from normal bodily functions like temperature and hormones to mental quickness. Your skin also has its own biological clock and anything from stress to jet lag can send it off time. Enter: Peptide⁴. This clever yeast-derived peptide resets the clocks so they are all ticking at the same time. The result? All skin cells are in formation and functioning at full speed. Come morning, your skin will look like it’s just had a facial – all glowy and the picture of health.
Before you apply it, a little reminder; Don’t forget to thoroughly cleanse. Massage Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm into dry skin and then repeat with wet fingers. On contact with water, the balm transforms into a milk which returns the pH of skin to the perfect balance so you don’t get that tight feeling after cleansing. Finish by removing excess product from skin with the damp cloth. Clearing pores allows Peptide⁴ Night Recovery Cream-Oil to penetrate deeper into the cellular level. If your skin is especially dry, finish with a layer of Pro-Collagen Marine Cream.
