what happens to our skin in the morning?

Skin’s circadian rhythms ( natural processes & functions ) Are changes in skin’s functions that follow a 24-hour cycle & they are mainly affected by day & night . light & dark ✔️ Understanding how skin changes throughout the day, help us use skin care products at their most effective times Part (1) our skin in the morning : ✔️ During the day ( starting from sunrise) 🌕🌝 your skin switches to the protection mode , it works hard to protect itself ✔️ The rate of transepidermal water loss (TEWL) is lower, your skin’s doesn’t loose water content during the day as much as night because during the day it produces more oil to make a film on skin that strengthens the barrier to protect you from pollutants, irritants & free radicals. ✔️ So you shouldn’t be stripping your skin during the day by using harsh cleansers or exfoliation . by doing this your skincare doesn’t work in harmony with your skin’s need . ✔️ during the day your skin faces too much stress protecting you from pollution, irritants , uv rays & free radicals, so it’s important to use antioxidants & sunscreen to support your skin’s function at this time ✔️ it’s not the perfect time for trying new products for two reasons : (1) your skin is already stressed during the day as it’s protecting you (2) your body’s cortisol levels rise up at morning , high levels of cortisol makes skin more sensitive & reactive so it’s likely to have a reaction from new products . ✔️ skin absorbtion is lower at the morning . the protection mood & the strong barrier during the day time makes skin less permeable so maybe you can not layer many products as in the evening. At morning just focus on the important & basic products ( wash with water or gentle non stripping cleanser , don’t exfoliate, use antioxidants, sunscreen, and a good moisturizer to support your barrier function )

yup for sure 🥺 It affects the skin cells repair process which starts around 11 pm . production of good quality new skin cells & good quality collagen are highly related to getting enough sleep at night ( the beginning of night not late ) .
