A Celebrity Doctor Tells Cosmo Her *Exact* Night-Time Skincare Routine

In conversation with Dr. Jamuna Pai, founder, SkinLab. Use these products in the PM, for amazing skin in the AM!

“My number-one rule for myself and my clients: never go to bed with a dirty face. No matter how tired I am, I remove all my make-up; and if I’m not wearing any, it’s still important to cleanse skin. I use the SkinLab Face Wash—it contains aloe vera, fruit vinegar, and witch hazel, which draw out impurities and add a subtle glow. I then apply a repair cream with key ingredients like azelaic acid, glycerin, arbutin, retinyl palmitate, citric acid, ascorbic acid, and allantoin—a combination of these speed up cell turnover and improve texture. I top it up with a rich moisturising cream that forms a veil over my skin, and gives me glowing skin in the morning.”
