Hello everyone, today’s post will consist of my nighttime skin care routine. I decided to give you the rundown of my current nighttime routine. My nighttime routine often varies between three scenarios for example; when I wear makeup, normal days, and when I am lazy. These are my all time favorite products, now onto my nighttime skin care!
For the days that I wear makeup, I first start off with removing the surface layer of my makeup with Burt’s Bees Sensitive Skin facial cleansing towelettes, these are great for taking off makeup, they do not leave my face greasy, and they clean the skin very well.
Followed by that, I take my Milky Jelly cleanser by Glossier and pump some into my hands I massage the cleanser all throughout my face (even on my eyes because it’s safe to remove eye makeup 😉 ).After thoroughly applying the product onto my face, I get my Foreo LUNA mini 2 to deeply cleanse the skin. I love this so much, because it is T-Sonic™ face brush with different intensities, making the skin appear more cleaner and smoother. I move the brush in circular motions all throughout my face. After, I then rinse my face with lukewarm water and pat dry the skin (never rub the skin, as it can cause irritation).
On my makeup free day, I will wash my face similarly with my Foreo LUNA mini 2, but using the Purity facial cleanser by Philosophy (an amazing facial wash for sensitive skin). I apply some into my hands spreading the product throughout the skin and deeply cleansing the skin with the LUNA, rinsing and drying as normal.
These next few products are what I try to use everyday after washing my face, except on those lazy days, lol! I try to apply toner everyday, after washing my face. Toner is the key to good skin, it will kill all the bacteria and wipe away any oil on the skin, balancing your skin’s pH level. Toner also should soothe the skin and calm inflammation if any, I prefer an alcohol-free toner so the skin does not get dried out. The absolute best toner out there is the Thayers Witch Hazel Lavender Toner. This toner smells amazing, refreshes the skin, and improves the skins quality. All you have to do is apply some to a cotton round and wipe onto your face and neck.For days when my skin is a bit dry I apply the Burt’s Bees sensitive skin moisturizer (see Winter Skin Essentials), followed by my Sun Bum Lip Balm in the flavor Mango to hydrate my lips.Before I go to bed, I spray my Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe, Chamomile, and Lavender all over to calm my skin.
For those lazy days:
We all have those lazy days when we just really do not want to wash our face or anything. The solution that I have for you is, using the Yes To cucumbers calming Micellar Cleansing Water on a cotton pad. This will help remove any dirt, oil, or makeup off the skin without needing to rinse afterwards. It is quick, effective, and the solution to a lazy person’s guide.
I hope this post was beneficial for you. I have been wanting to share my nighttime skin care routine and I’m glad I did. Please like and subscribe if you enjoyed this post!
