“Damp skin is more permeable than dry skin”
Practically you should get up to 10 times better absorption of Vitamin C Serum if applied directly onto cleansed and toned skin. You don’t want it to be wet, but my advice is to apply Vitamin C Serum which generally contains a higher concentration of active ingredients, within a minute of cleansing and toning your skin.
“Take Advantage of Your Skin’s Internal Clock”
For years, scientists have understood that our bodies are governed by time, 24-hour circadian rhythms that cause us to sleep and wake with the movements of the sun. But it appears that rather than there just being one “master clock,” our bodies are kept in sync by multiple clock systems in most of our cells throughout the body. “When this system is disrupted, it results in premature tissue aging, as well as a greater predisposition to developing skin issues”. Our body regenerates at different times throughout the 24-hour window.
It is well known that the proliferation process takes place during the day at various times, many of us feel that our skin can feel a little tight and dehydrated around 4 p.m., this is a great time to rehydrate and boost the skin with a light face mist “Facial Toner”.
Cell turnover is at its highest at night. It happens at least 30 times more rapidly at night than during the day, as this is when the regeneration process takes place. “It is vital to effectively remove all impurities by using Gentle Cleanser with Vitamin C before applying your night time skincare products; we recommend active ingredients such as retinol. The rate of water loss and blood flow are 20% to 30% higher at night than in the morning or afternoon. Circadian rhythms in the skin affect the biology of appearance and also have a profound effect on the absorption of applied treatment products.
Coming to the morning, our cortisol levels (the stress hormone) are usually highest when we wake up in the morning (7 to 8 a.m.), so the levels of potential skin inflammation may be higher at this time generally. We suggest using products containing things like vitamin C, Ferulic acid and Vitamin E at this stage that have anti-inflammatory and strong antioxidant activity.
