For people with sleeping issuse like sleep apnea you might find it difficult to have a effective skincare routine because you sleep through the day. I have sleep apnea my self and struggle with hormornal dehydrated skin.
I can go to sleep at 11pm and not wake up till 2pm the next day so adding sunscreen to my routine doesn’t feel worth the effort. although… the evidence shows you should definitely add sunscreen to your face after moisturizer no matter what, you shouldn’t skip!.
You loose the most amount of water from your skin when you are sleeping (eperdermal water loss) so over sleeping can cause dry/dehydrated skin.
Make sure you drink plenty of water before you go to sleep its suggested to have 8 glasses of water per day. also to cut down of caffine and refined sugar switch to alternatives like matcha or chai tea.
wake yourself up with a cool shower as soon as you wake up then moisturise get dressed brush you teeth est
I keep my routine as basic as possible Ive tried adding vitamin C and retinol but they seem to make my skin dry and irrated.
I suggest either cerave hydrating cleanser or the la roche posey milky cleanser.
