Our skin needs regular replenishing as much as our body does since it braves the pollution, heat wave, free radicals, stress, dust and other exposures on a daily basis that in turn damage our skin largely. The skin loses its elasticity and firmness over time. A daily skin care routine goes a long way in repairing, nourishing and rejuvenating the skin.
Repairing your skin using natural products will benefit the skin more than using chemical based cosmetics. Applying them in the night time would help restore the skin faster as compared to when it’s applied during the day as during the night there are no external damages and the creams are also absorbed faster than when applied during the day.
