After a good night’s sleep, you wake up feeling refreshed. The same rule applies for your skin. There are easy things that you can you do at night to nourish your skin while you sleep. As we sleep, our skin restores itself and reverses the damage done during the waking hours.
Skin is optimally receptive when the body is at rest. This is a critical opportunity to infuse skin with powerful anti-aging ingredients and transformational moisture, and to lock it in while you sleep.
The sleeping hours are the secret to slowing down aging, and choosing the right night cream with right ingredients that help restore skin’s natural moisture balance and barrier properties is as important as when you use the cream. As we sleep, the skin is not at rest—it’s actually working harder than during the day to regenerate and renew.
Between the hours of 1 and 4 a.m., skin cells are most active.
Here’s our ideal nighttime routine:
- Cleanse the skin to remove dirt, makeup, oil and impurities. Look for a pH-balanced facial cleanser.
- Apply BIOSKINBRIO night cream to clean, dry skin.

As a general rule of thumb, here is what you should know to care for skin at any age:
Fine lines can start to develop at any age, skin tone can turn dull and skin can begin to get a rough texture. Another common problem is increased skin sensitivity or conditions like rosacea.
Skin also loses some of its elasticity. You may experience dry, chapped skin and discoloration. Try to avoid sun exposure and use other products to minimize the effects of aging before they become too difficult to get rid of!
In your 50s?
As you enter your 50’s, your skin has also gone through five decades of wear and tear and will show clear signs of aging, such as wrinkles, fine lines, age spots and more. It’s time to acknowledge that you can’t get back the flawless skin of the past, but you can take steps to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. To keep your skin looking luminous, try updating your skin care routine, invest in effective anti-aging products and make sure you moisturize.
Noticing bags or dark circles under your eyes? You’re not alone.
Dermatologists and plastic surgeons get asked about under-eye bags and dark circles all the time. “I hear patients voice complaints several times a day,” says dermatologist Valerie Goldburt, MD, PhD, of NYU Langone Medical Center.
Good news: There are fixes for under-eye flaws. The first step is figuring out just what the problem is.
Morning-After Puffy Eyes
Seasonal allergies, a cold, a sinus infection: These are some of the things that can lead to water building up under the eye.
“We have the thinnest skin around our eyes, so it’s the area that’s most influenced by the in-and-out flow of fluids,” Goldburt says.
A dinner heavy with salty food or a night of crying while watching a tearjerker movie can also cause morning-after puffiness. The reason is osmosis. “Water always travels from areas in the body where there’s low salt concentration to tissues where there’s more salt, Goldburt explains. That principle holds true whether the salt comes from tears or from soy sauce.
Simple Fixes for Under-Eye Bags
Addressing the underlying cause will help treat these temporary eruptions of puffiness. Ã§.
Here are steps to try:
Treat hay fever, if that’s the problem. There are non-sedating, over-the-counter allergy medications that may help. If you suspect or have hay fever, talk with your doctor about how to treat it (whether or not it’s affecting your eyes’ appearance).
Try a neti pot. Irrigating the nasal cavity with a neti pot– a device that looks like a small teapot– can help relieve fluid buildup caused by allergies, sinus congestion, or a cold.
Thanks to gravity, sleeping on your side or stomach can encourage fluids to collect under your eyes. Goldburt advises her patients who wake up with puffy eyes to sleep on their back and add an extra pillow under their head.
Changing your sleep position takes some getting used to, says Goldburt, a self-described “former eye-bag sufferer” and stomach-sleeper herself. Still, she says, “The earlier you start changing your sleep position, the better, because after a few years under-eye bags can became permanent.”.
Other everyday habits, including rubbing your eyes frequently, going to bed with makeup on, and excessive drinking, can contribute to under-eye bags, too. “Sleeping in eye makeup can irritate your eyes, causing fluids to pool,” Goldburt says. Heavy alcohol drinking causes dehydration. That weakens the delicate skin around the eyes, making it more likely to sink into a pouch.
Eye bags are very common, and are usually not related to your health. If your bags appear suddenly and you’re not suffering from allergies, a sinus infection, or a cold– and they don’t ease up when you try the lifestyle steps mentioned above– it’s a good idea to see your doctor.
Some thyroid or kidney problems can cause under-eye fluid retention, notes New York dermatologist Craig Austin, MD.
