After a long day, there's nothing better than indulging in a little self-care with your nighttime skincare routine. This is the perfect way to unwind and rejuvenate – plus, your morning self will thank you with a noticeable glow! Soothing music, luxurious skincare and a gentle face massage are all you need to relax before bed.

With so many skincare products on the market, you might be confused about which ones to use at night and which ones to use in the morning. To simplify things for you, we’ve curated a simple yet effective nighttime routine featuring our top-selling products that have been designed to address any skin concerns you may have. Sit back, relax, and let us guide you on your journey towards inner and outer radiance.

1. Clear the day away

Cleansing is the first step of any skincare routine – morning or night. In the evenings, it's about using a makeup-removing cleanser to wash away all makeup, plus any dirt, impurities and excess oils your skin may have accumulated throughout the day. For this purpose, we recommend the Soy pH-Balanced Hydrating Face Wash – a deep-cleansing formula that helps soften, hydrate, and balance the skin, leaving your skin refreshed and ready for your overnight treatments.

2. Keep it toned

Facial toners are considered part of your cleansing routine, as they rid the skin of any deep, leftover impurities – priming it for the absorption of the products that follow. For a gorgeous glow come morning, reach for fresh’s Rose Deep Hydration Facial Toner. This hydrating toner helps minimise the appearance of pores while increasing skin moisture with the help of hyaluronic acid. Put a few drops onto a cotton pad, then swipe over your face, starting from the centre and moving outwards, until no further debris remains.

3. Upgrade your overnight routine

Elevate your nighttime routine with a luxurious kombucha essence. Facial essences act as a booster for all your other treatments so that you get the most out of your serums and moisturisers. Kombucha Antioxidant Facial Treatment Essence utilises kombucha to assist in combating oxidative stress – which leads to the appearance of dry, uneven, dull skin. Simply pat the easily-absorbable formula into your skin and wait a minute before moving on to the rest of your routine.

4. Treat your skin with kindness

During sleep, your skin goes through a natural regeneration process, repairing at double the rate it does during the day. This means that the evening is the best time of day to apply powerful products and active ingredients. Serums, specifically, are highly effective, as their fluid texture makes for easy absorption of ingredients targeted to your specific skin concerns.

To even skin texture, diminish the visible signs of ageing, and boost radiance, add Lotus AHA Gentle Resurfacing Serum to your evening routine. This powerful anti-ageing serum features a combination of AHAs – including glycolic acid and citric acid – to deeply exfoliate the skin, while polyglutamic acid locks in moisture so that skin is comfortably hydrated. All you need is 2-3 pumps applied over your face and neck.

5. Total eye care in one step

The area around your eyes is made up of delicate skin – 10x thinner than the skin on the rest of your face. This means that the eye area is usually the first to show signs of ageing, fatigue, and dehydration. Nourish the eye area with Black Tea Age-Delay Eye Cream – fresh’s do-it-all black tea eye concentrate. This highly effective formula targets dark circles, puffiness, and fine lines, leaving you looking well-rested and refreshed.

6. Choose an overnight mask

Complete your face care ritual with a night cream or overnight mask. Overnight masks deliver intense nourishment to your skin while you sleep and can simply be rinsed off the next morning. They double as a moisturiser and treatment. Just like your daily moisturiser, choose a mask based on your skin type and needs.

For sensitive skin, opt for fresh’s Floral Recovery Calming Mask. This gentle mask is powered by floral extracts – passionflower, cornflower, cherry blossom, and peony – to help calm the skin, reduce redness, and minimise uneven skin tone and texture. Enriched with vitamin C and squalane, skin is left brightened and smoothed.

Target the first signs of ageing with Lotus Youth Preserve Dream Night Cream – a lightweight face moisturiser and treatment duo that detoxifies, strengthens and renews skin while you sleep. Formulated with nourishing shea butter, soothing vitamin E, and antioxidant-boosting Super Lotus extract to recover and revitalise stressed skin.

Need a lift? Black Tea Peptide Firming Overnight Mask is for you. With a velvety texture and high-performance ingredients, this firming mask works to reduce signs of fatigue, boost elasticity, and redefine facial contours with immediate results that improve over time.

If a natural glow is what you dream of, make your dreams come true with Rose Deep Hydration Sleeping Mask. This next-level sleep mask drenches your skin in hydration so that you wake up with soft, supple skin and a deliciously dewy appearance.

For the ultimate anti-ageing solution, you need Crème Ancienne White Truffle Overnight Mask. Formulated with precious white truffle extract, this expertly crafted mask cocoons your skin for intensive overnight recovery. Skin appears more smooth, firm, and radiant when you wake.

7. Give your lips some love, too!

Unlike the rest of your face, your lips don't have any oil glands of their own, making them prone to dryness, cracking, and discomfort. Soothe your lips with an overnight lip mask. Sugar Recovery Lip Mask Advanced Therapy helps recover and repair the skin, for lips that look and feel soft, smooth, and plump the next day.

8. Soften & soothe your body

Don't leave anything out! Treat your body to a nourishing massage with fresh’s Milk Body Lotion. Fast-absorbing and pyjama-proof, spend a few minutes softening, smoothing, and hydrating your skin from chest to toes for a gentle, spa-like experience, complete with a tranquil scent and 24-hour hydration.
