Is Nighttime Skincare Different From Your Daytime Routine?

Published

on

best skincare routine for 40s 2000

Most of us know that we need to wash our face at least once a day and apply some moisturizer in the morning. If you want truly ageless, beautiful skin, you need to do a bit more than that. Both daytime and nighttime skincare routines are a crucial part of maintaining healthy skin.

Importance Of Nighttime Skincare

Why does nighttime skincare matter? When you are asleep, the repair systems of your body go to work. Your skin gets more blood flow. DNA helps to repair cells. Collagen increases. By adding a nighttime skincare routine, you assist your body in its rebuilding job. Here are some basic steps you can adapt and adjust for your evening skincare regimen:

  1. Remove makeup.
  2. Gently clean your skin.
  3. Exfoliate two or three nights per week.
  4. Apply a serum.
  5. Moisturize.
  6. Apply eye cream.

Look for products that work with your skin type, such as the best night moisturizer for oily skin. You can also choose serums that target specific problem areas. Worried about your neck? There’s a serum for that.

Differences Between Day And Night Skincare

Your morning skincare routine should be all about protecting the skin. You need to get it ready for the day ahead. First, you will cleanse it. Then think about what your skin will face that day. Sun? You need a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30. Pollutants? You need a protective serum. Overly dry indoor air? You need a strong moisturizer.

At night your skincare should help calm and heal your skin. Skin rollers are good for soothing and increasing blood flow. Masks remove impurities. Nighttime serums should heal and rebuild.

Sleep is an important part of your skincare. Lack of good sleep contributes to stress which manifests itself in your skin. Failure to sleep prevents your body from performing the rebuilding process.

When sleep proves to be allusive, try the following:

  • Calming herbal teas, like chamomile, before bedtime
  • Yoga or other meditative practices
  • Avoiding all electronic devices an hour before bedtime
  • Natural sleep aids, such as melatonin strips
  • Reducing the temperature of your bedroom

A healthy nighttime skincare regimen can be a part of your day’s winding down and prepare you for a good sleep.

Anti-Aging Skincare

Skin showing signs of aging also benefits from day and night routines. If your skin is thinning, wrinkling in excess, developing age spots, or becoming abnormally dry, it’s time to use skincare products specifically for aging.

The best skin care for aging skin will include moisturizers that improve collagen synthesis and serums with hyaluronic acid. Check for ingredients that lessen sun spots and fine lines around the eyes. An evening mask can deliver an extra-potent shot of moisture.

Are you ready to improve your skincare routine? Visit local retailers to try out product samples. Search online brands for a wider variety of specialty skincare options. Whichever products you choose, create morning and evening regimens that work with your schedule and your body. If it’s too difficult, you won’t maintain it. Simplicity is key to success.

MTN Ghana concluded this year’s Eidul Fitr celebrations with cultural events in Accra Newtown and Kumasi. The cultural events brought together various ethnic groups in the communities to showcase their rich culture in vibrant durbars.

Leaders of the ethnic groups led their delegations with traditional performances. The event featured live performances from dance groups and artists during the durbars. The cultural day platforms were used to share goodwill messages and to address community issues. In Kumasi, chiefs paraded from the central Mosque through Manhyia, Allabar, and ended at Kumasi Zongo. Health screening exercises were also included in the activities. Residents were screened for Hepatitis B, Blood Pressure, HIV, Malaria, and had their sugar levels checked.

In addition to these activities, the CEO of MTN Ghana, Stephen Blewett, in solidarity, celebrated with Muslim employees at MTN House. MTN Regional leadership also held similar engagements with Muslim employees in all 16 regions.

Before the cultural day, MTN Ghana presented food items and cash to the National Chief Imam, His Eminence Dr. Sheikh Usmanu Nuhu Sharubutu, and Regional Chief Imams in Ashanti, Western, and Northern regions. This year, a total of GHS100,000 was committed to the purchase of items for the celebration of Eidul Fitr in the three regions. The items presented included rice, cartons of vegetable oil, packs of mineral water, soft drinks, rams, and cash.

In Accra, Salihu Abu, Senior Manager for Customer Relations and Credit Management, led the delegation to the National Chief Imam and expressed his appreciation on behalf of MTN for the support, patronage, and loyalty of MTN’s customers across the country. He expressed gratitude for their continued support of MTN’s activities and the warm reception the company has received over the years.

Gavi and UNICEF welcome approval of new oral cholera vaccine

Published

malaria vaccine scaled

Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, and UNICEF welcome the news that a new oral cholera vaccine (OCV), Euvichol-S, has now received WHO prequalification and can be made available to countries around the world. The prequalification of this new product will help EuBiologics, the manufacturer, produce more volumes of vaccine, faster, and at a lower cost – a key step to expanding supply amidst the ongoing acute global upsurge of cholera outbreaks.

Today’s approval will help increase the overall supply of OCV available in 2024, with approximately 50 million doses now forecasted to be available to the global stockpile this year, compared to 38 million in 2023. Euvichol-S is an important product innovation: a simplified formulation of Euvichol-Plus that reduces the number of vaccine components – delivering a vaccine that studies have shown remains equally effective against key cholera serogroups while lowering production cost and complexity – thus allowing for larger volumes to be produced faster.

Cholera has been surging globally since 2021, with high case fatality rates despite availability of simple, effective and affordable treatment. The large number of outbreaks has led to unprecedented demand for vaccines from impacted countries. While global OCV supply has increased eighteen-fold between 2013 and 2023, the large and sustained spike in demand has put a strain on the global stockpile of OCV. Partners and countries are working urgently on cholera response, prevention and control measures in the face of this crisis, and have called on countries, manufacturers and others to support. Most recently, Gavi, UNICEF and partners announced the largest ever global deployment of cholera diagnostics to support surveillance and response.

“Prequalification of Euvichol-S represents a lifeline for vulnerable communities around the world,” said Dr Derrick Sim, Managing Director of Vaccine Markets & Health Security at Gavi. “Every vaccine dose delivered through Gavi programmes today represents years of planning and investment to shape the market so supply matches countries’ needs. The approval of this new product could not have come at a more important time given the acute upsurge of cholera outbreaks we are seeing worldwide. We commend EuBiologics for their role in ensuring countries around the world have access to cholera vaccine as part of their response toolkit.”

EuBiologics is currently the only supplier of OCV to the global stockpile, although other manufacturers are expected to have products available in the coming years. Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance works to shape the OCV market, and funds the global stockpile of OCV doses, along with transport and vaccination activities in lower-income countries. UNICEF leads on procurement and delivery of doses to countries. Use of the stockpile for emergency response is overseen by the International Coordinating Group for Vaccine Provision (ICG), led by WHO.

“Despite cholera being preventable and easily treatable, children continue to suffer from this potentially fatal disease. UNICEF has already secured access to all the available doses of the just-approved vaccine and will deliver these to the countries at the highest possible speed,” said Leila Pakkala, Director of UNICEF Supply Division. “The approval means that UNICEF can increase the procurement and delivery of cholera vaccines by more than 25%, pushing back harder on deadly cholera outbreaks.”
