Unlocking Radiant Skin: The Vital Link Between Sleep and Skincare

Evolve Beauty Skincare laid on a bed.

There’s no denying we are big fans of bedtime. Sleep is vital for our health and wellbeing, and our skin, in particular, really benefits from time spent between the sheets. Our B Corp buddies over at Evolve Organic Beauty really know what’s what when it comes to natural skincare and we are delighted to welcome them over to our Bedspread to share their tips on how to get the most out of our beauty sleep.  

What is the secret to a perfect night-time skin routine?

To keep your skin healthy and looking its best it is crucial to establish (and stick with) an effective night-time skincare routine in order to help skin repair and regeneration and wake up with a glowing complexion.   Top of the list is to cleanse your skin, removing any makeup and grime that has accumulated during the day.  We then want to apply nourishing ingredients that will support the skin's natural overnight repair processes to get the ultimate beauty sleep. To bring some zen into your bedtime routine, at Evolve Organic Beauty we also love incorporating delicious aromatherapy fragrances to help us get the dreamiest night ever.

How to cleanse your skin at night time

A thorough and deep cleanse of your skin is the first and most important step as you need a fresh clean slate before adding any other products to your face. If your skin feels particularly dirty or you need to remove heavy makeup, you might want to have a two-step cleansing routine known as a double cleanse. Begin with our natural makeup remover Deep Clean Micellar Water to wipe away all impurities and gently cleanse and tone your skin without any irritation. Follow with an oil or balm-based cleanser such as our Gentle Cleansing Melt or Kalahari Dream Cleansing Oil to leave skin thoroughly clean yet still nourished and hydrated. After a tiring day, you may also wish to use our  Rose Quartz Gua Sha to give your face a relaxing facial massage, helping sculpt and support healthy skin circulation.

Why you should use a toner at night time

The next step in your night-time routine is to tone your skin. This is the perfect opportunity to add extra hydration or even exfoliate your skin overnight depending on what your skin needs. If you are looking to boost skin radiance, you could apply our  Liquid Radiance Glycolic Toner  which uses gentle fruit-based AHAs to lightly exfoliate your skin and reveal beautiful fresh skin underneath. To strengthen your skin barrier and lock moisture into your skin use Evolve’s  Daily Defence Moisture Mist  

Why do I need to use a serum at night time?

We like to think of a serum as a little bottle of magic. Because your body works overtime while you sleep it’s a great time to make the most of these power hours and feed your skin the little bit of magic it’s craving. Once your skin is clean and free of makeup, it is easily able to absorb the active ingredients in our skin serums. And you don’t need to choose just one; you can use several serums at once to really give your skin a magical bedtime boost. There are a variety of Evolve Organic Beauty natural and organic skin serums formulated to deliver your skin exactly what it needs.

Choose from the ultra-hydrating  Hyaluronic Serum 200  or our  Age-Defying Lifting Serum  for visibly younger looking skin. Our  Bio-Retinol + C Booster  can deliver radiance and cellular renewal benefits and our  Salicylic Rescue Serum  helps to reduce blemishes and control oil on the skin. For skin barrier repair our  Blue Velvet Ceramide Serum  really packs a punch, and if you wanted to nourish the skin and improve the appearance of scarring, the  Rosehip Miracle Oil  is just the ticket. 

How can a moisturiser help my skin at night time?

Night time is an ideal time to support cellular renewal and the skin's natural processes, and Evolve Organic Beauty’s  Nightly Renew Facial Cream  is the ideal partner for this. While you sleep, your body and skin are going through a natural process of cellular renewal also referred to as autophagy (which, interestingly, comes from the Greek for ‘self-eating’). While you are in a fasting state your digestive system can take a break and your body can instead focus on recycling any dead or damaged cells and proteins and re-absorbing them.


The peony extract in our  Nightly Renew Facial Cream  helps to support this miraculous cellular recycling process happening inside the top layers of the skin and deliver a refreshed and radiant skin in the morning. This cream also contains Bio-Retinol that works to smooth the skin, plump up wrinkles, stimulate collagen synthesis and rejuvenate the skin. Not only is  Nightly Renew Facial Cream  an effective night-time skincare warrior, it’s also a real treat for the senses. With a seriously serene combination of ten essential oils, it’s proven to induce calm and improve the quality of sleep. Nothing short of beauty sleep in a jar!
