I’ve always heard that your skin does most of its healing at night in the evening hours and that you shouldn’t wait to wash your face until right before you go to sleep. FOMO got the best of me — I don’t want to miss that window! Plus, if you let yourself get too tired, you might skip altogether. Now, I pretty much wash my face after getting home from work if I can. I also get in comfy clothes almost immediately. It’s my ritual and I love layering on my serums and treatments earlier instead of hurrying into it and crashing into bed. I feel like it’s made a difference in my skin and it also helps me relax. Sometimes a little too relaxed – a.k.a. falling asleep on the couch at 8pm. Almost always the case when I use MUN No. 1 Aknari Nighttime Dream Youth Serum. It’s the silkiest blend of argan oil, Bulgarian rose oil (oh my HEAVEN!) and prickly pear (a.k.a. Barbary fig seed oil) that balances and brightens skin. MUN was developed by Munemi Imai, the international makeup artist. She designed this beautiful organic serum around the prickly pear oil, which she discovered on a trip to Morocco. It has so many skin benefits and is why this serum is so effective and brightening. I love the way this feels on my skin and there’s something to be said for the simplicity of the ingredient list. Less is more in this case. By the time I snuggle up in my polka dot sheets, I feel like I’ve already got a few hours of beauty sleep in!
