There's a reason why the term "beauty sleep" exists. When you're puyat, your skin's ability to repair itself slows down. This causes the complexion to appear dull and feel a bit rough to touch.
If you tend to work long hours, one simple way you can care for your skin is by adding a serum into your routine. While nothing will replace a good night's sleep, these potent formulas below can help keep your skin healthy (and glowing!):
1. Snail White Miracle Intensive Repair Serum
Combat dullness and dryness with a few drops of this skin-renewing serum! The silky concentrate contains alpha arbutin to fade dark spots and snail secretion filtrate to boost your skin's collagen and elastin production.
2. Ellana Cosmetics Clear Skin Clarifying Serum
Got oily, acne-prone skin? Keep your skin clear when you're not sleeping right with this serum that's formulated with blueberry extract, sodium hyaluronate, and macadamia nut oil to regulate oil production and moisturize the skin.
3. Dear Klairs Midnight Blue Youth Drop
P1,570, Beauty MNL
You'll only need two to three drops of this peptide-rich serum to keep your skin looking smooth and supple.
4. Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair (ANR) Synchronized Recovery Complex II Serum
P4,200, Lazada and Rustan's The Beauty Source
Are you willing to splurge a bit more? This antioxidant-rich formula improves the overall appearance of the skin by targetting dryness, dehydration, fine lines, and wrinkles, as well as loss of radiance. It's also packed with hyaluronic acid, which helps lock in moisture in your skin. Many Pinays swear by this popular serum!
5. Murad Retinol Youth Renewal Serum
Restore your skin's glow by applying this retinol-based serum at night. It also has skin-brightening hydroquinone and exfoliating glycolic acid for a clear, glowing complexion!
Bonus: Pond's Anti-Bacterial Facial Foam
Are you breaking out? Facial washes may not sit on your skin as long as serums, but they're just as crucial in keeping pimples from forming. Pick up this facial wash that's formulated with beta-hydroxy acid (BHA) to deeply cleanse the skin, drawing out all the dirt and oil that may congest your complexion.
