"I'm a big believer in serums for bed, so that you are helping the skin repair itself while you rest," Joanna Vargas, a celebrity facialist and the founder of Joanna Vargas Salon and Skin care Collection, told INSIDER. "I also like to use facial massage in applying your nighttime products. You want to apply upward from your neck up to your forehead. If you break out a lot and your skin is irritated and patchy, then you would want to apply product from the top down to encourage your lymphatic system to carry away the waste, and you'll stop breaking out as much. Use the pads of your fingertips. For upward, do upward circles. If you're going down, then do downward circles."
Choosing serums that will improve the look, feel, and health of your skin can be a bit overwhelming, so working with a professional or doing a bit of research can help you determine what's best for you.
Wilson is also a fan of a bit of massage. She said that jade rollers and the like can be really useful tools because they too can help the lymphatic system. "Facial massage is so good for the skin and by doing that you're getting the blood vessels underneath your skin, you're getting that moving, you're getting energy into your skin, so you're kind of kick-starting some of those overnight processes and you're also helping calm down any irritation that you might be having from breakouts or any inflammation," she added.
