I hope you had a really great Memorial Day Weekend! We ended up having better weather than they predicted so I was able to get out and swim and spend time with family and friends. I love this time of year!! Keep reading to see my Nighttime Skincare Routine.
Nighttime Skincare Routine
Step 1. I make sure I always remove my makeup before washing my face. Even if you are way too tired to wash your face with a cleanser at least try to use a makeup wipe to remove oil, dirt, and makeup before you sleep, if you don’t wear makeup you should still do this. I can’t tell you how many makeup remover wipes I’ve been through. I try a new brand basically every time I run out so the brand isn’t the focus here, they just need to work.
Step 2. After I have removed all my face makeup, I remove stubborn eye makeup, like waterproof mascara. I have tried a lot of eye makeup removers and they all are too oily for me leaving my eyes burning and itchy. I love Bioderma, it’s basically a cleansing water that will remove makeup and cleanse your skin, and tone it… Jack of all Trades I tell ya (I love this stuff and it lasts forever, I’ve had it over a year…Amazon told me so). Just use it with a cotton round.
Step 3. Now I cleanse my face with a cleanser. I switch out different types of cleansers a lot but right now I am loving this Charcoal Cleanser from Biore. Click here to read more about it. I always use a cleansing brush like the Soniclear, click here to read my review on it. I use a cleansing brush to wash my face because they really get all that makeup off you would have left behind with just using your hands.
Step 5: After the face is cleansed and dried I go back in with my Bioderma and a cotton round and tone my face, this will also get off any extra makeup that you missed. Your face will feel so super clean after this.
Step 6: Now I moisturize my face and neck. I use the Clinique Moisturizer because it’s lightweight and doesn’t make my skin feel really greasy. But some nights when I feel like my skin needs an extra drink of moisture I will use something a lot more heavy like the Korres Rose Sleeping Facial. Click here to read my review on this.
Step 7: Then I use an eye gel… this is pretty self explanatory but just pat it under the eye area. I also go to the side and on the lid too. I like using a gel because it has a cool sensation which helps in de-puffing the under eye area as well. Always try to use your ring finger to apply your eye gel/cream because it has the softest touch, perfect for the sensitive skin under your eye.
Step 8: Lastly if I have any breakouts I use a concentrated acne treatment to dry it up. If you have breakouts you will have to figure out which type of product works for you Benzoyl Peroxide (works for me) or Salicylic Acid. Whichever one works get a product with that in it and apply it to the breakout and sleep with it on. Wash it off the next morning.
So this is my Nighttime Skincare Routine, I switch it up every now and then but this is generally what works for me. I also do some type of Face Mask at least once a week. Click here to check out my DIY Face Mask.
