How you can sleep your way to healthier skin with Wild Science Lab

Does night time skincare actually work?

Night time skincare is a crucial part of your routine, especially if you have dry or sensitive skin. If you’re not using a moisturiser or a serum at night, your skin will be left to fend for itself overnight. This can cause dehydration and increase sensitivity to irritants. Night time skincare also helps prepare your face for makeup application in the morning. By moisturising your face properly at night, it will be less likely to break out or flake during the day when you wear makeup. 

Here are some tips and steps on how to achieve your glowiest skin yet!

1.) Tranexamic acid for an even skin tone and texture

Tranexamic acid can help brighten dark spots and hyperpigmentation, by slowing down the production of melanin in your skin. This leads to reduction in melasma and pigmentation. It’s suitable for all skin types, but it’s particularly beneficial if you struggle with hyperpigmentation. You can find this effective ingredient in the Light Switch Hyperpigmentation Serum from Wild Science Lab. Rejuvenate and control the skin with a multi-dimensional complex of brightening, smoothing and hydrating Tranexamic Acid, Azelaic Acid, Hyaluronic Acid, Betaine, Aloe Vera and refreshing Cucumber extract.

2.) This alternative to retinol has the benefits without redness or irritation

“According to a double-blind study from the British Journal of Dermatology, daily bakuchiol use has been found to be equally as effective as retinol in combating facial wrinkles and hyperpigmentation after 12 weeks, and participants who used retinol reported more itching and burning than those who used bakuchiol.” (

Backuchiol reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, whilst giving hydration to skin. It’s perfect for locking in hydration, and is featured in the Night Watch Resilience Moisturiser. Rejuvenate the skin matrix with a bio-compatible skin revitalising complex of Crocus Bulb extract, Sweet Almond oil, organic Hemp Seed oil, organic Shea Butter, Turmeric and hydrating Hyaluronic Acid with the restful scent of 8 essential oils.

3.) So…what’s the difference between serums and moisturisers?

A moisturiser forms a physical barrier to lock in hydration on the surface of your skin, whereas serums penetrate the skin on a cellular level. They make an effective duo- serums used first, then moisturiser after. Light Switch Hyperpigmentation Serum and Night Watch Resilience Moisturiser are a duo designed for sensitive, dry skin as well as for combatting hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles. They also both use a high amount of active ingredients that have been specially chosen to soothe rather than irritate.

GOODBYE tired skin, HELLO radiant glow!

Whether you’re looking to brighten up your skin for a gorgeous glow, or nurse tired skin back to health, Light Switch and Night Watch are the best night time duo to achieving those skin goals. 

The key takeaway here? Give your skin some love, even when you’re asleep.
