This Is How To Get Younger-Looking Skin While You Sleep

This simple 3-step treatment is my new secret weapon for fighting wrinkles and fine lines. Do it right before bed so it can work its magic while you sleep!

One of the behavioral quirks that runs rampant in my family is a tendency to approach things with an “all or nothing” attitude. I’m often convinced that if I can’t do something perfectly, I shouldn’t do it at all. (Although I like to think that I’m getting better at catching myself when I start thinking that way!)

For example, in the past I’ve felt compelled to incorporate more natural products and methods into my skincare routine. So of course, this innocent desire mutated into the belief that I could only use all-natural products. The switch was too much too fast, and I quickly became frustrated with my new natural skincare regimen.

But I now realize that there’s nothing inherently wrong with using a variety of skincare products. Both conventional and natural products offer different kinds of benefits, so why not take advantage of all of them? My new, more flexible approach to skincare lead to the creation of the nighttime anti-aging treatment that I’ll be sharing with you today. I’ve seen such an improvement in my skin since I started using it, and I think you’re going to love it as much as I do!

My Nighttime Anti-Aging Treatment

Step 1 – Cleanse & Exfoliate

After I remove my makeup and wash my face, I use blended oats and a bit of water to exfoliate my skin. (Making blended oats is as easy as tossing a handful of oats in your blender!) Oats have a naturally moisturizing effect, and the small bits of oats help buff away dead skin cells.

It’s gentle yet effective, which is perfect for my sensitive skin. And the exfoliation helps the products I use in the next step to penetrate deeper into my skin so they can work more effectively!

Step 2 – Apply Retinol Cream

Once my skin is clean and exfoliated, I apply my nightly retinol cream. Retinol is a form of vitamin A that helps your skin rebuild collagen and elastin, and it’s featured in many different anti-aging products.

Lately I’ve been using this Retinol Correxion Max system by RoC, which includes a retinol cream and an anti-aging serum. I use both since they are designed to work together, but there are tons of other options out there. (You can peruse other retinol creams on Amazon here.)

Step 3 – Lock It In With Coconut Oil

The final step in my anti-aging treatment is to apply a thin layer of coconut oil on my face to help “lock in” the retinol product. The coconut oil creates a moisture barrier, which prevents the retinol cream from evaporating too quickly. Plus, the coconut oil itself is inherently moisturizing, so you get a double dose of anti-aging power!

It’s similar to the way you might treat dry, cracked heels by slathering lotion on your feet and then covering them with a pair of socks. The coconut oil plays a similar role to the socks, sealing the treatment against your skin so it can work its magic more effectively. Cool, right?

Oh, and one quick note about coconut oil. When choosing a coconut oil to use on your skin for this or any other skin treatment, choose one that is unrefined and organic, if possible. Purity is important when it comes to the products you put on your skin!

Here’s How It’s Been Working So Far

After a few weeks of doing this anti-aging treatment regularly, I’m feeling very positively about the results so far! My skin feels so much softer and my fine lines are definitely less noticeable than they were before I started. If you’re looking for a simple anti-aging treatment that won’t cost you a fortune, I highly recommend giving this one a try for a few weeks!
