We all tend to focus more on our daily makeup routines and neglect our evening routines if we have any at all. I know that after a long day at work the last thing you want to do is follow through with a night skin care routine. Your nighttime skin care routine is crucial to ensuring your skin is healthy and glowing. I take my skin routine very seriously. And for those of you who are skeptical that skin care actually makes a difference my mom is walking proof because she looks freaking amazing for her age.
I start with a double cleanse using Dermalogica’s Pre-cleanse, which is an oil-based cleanser that is absolutely to die for. It helps remove any makeup, dirt and bacteria, leaving my skin soft and supple. I then use One Love Organics’ Easy Does It Cleanser as my second cleanse to ensure I’ve removed all traces of makeup. I follow-up with Dermalogica’s Daily Microfoliant, which is a gentle cleanser that you can use on a daily basis. It literally leaves my skin glowing.
After the cleansing and exfoliating, I spritz my face with Lush’s Tea Tree Water, which helps keep my skin clear of acne with its antibacterial properties. If I have any spots that need some extra care, I dab pure tea oil on the problem areas. I then follow with an oil based moisturizer from One Love Organics’ Skin Savior, and let me tell you, it stays true to its name.
I know it might sound weird that I use two oil-based products on my acne prone skin, but putting oil back into your skin actually prevents your body from creating more oil, which then helps you maintain fewer breakouts.
I know skin care routines in the evening can be frustrating because you are tired and eager for bed, but it really is the most important time to treat your skin. Going to bed with fresh, clean skin will ensure that you wake up with beautiful, soft, glowing skin that’s ready for the day.
Products I Use At Night On A Regular Basis:
- Dermalogica’s ‘Pre-Cleanse’
- One Love Organics ‘Easy Does It Cleanser’
- Dermalogica’s ‘Daily Microfoliant’
- LUSH’s ‘Tea Tree Toner’
- Pure Tea Tree Oil
- One Love Organics ‘Skin Savior’
- Dermalogica’s ‘Multivitamin Power Firm’
- Epic Blend Lip Balm
Now if you are tight for time and really just want to give yourself a quick cleanse. I suggest you choose your favorite cleanser, doing one cleanse. Followed with your favorite moisturizer and lip balm. It can really be that simple. But don’t neglect your skin and go to bed without a good cleanse. I promise your beautiful healthy skin will be thanking you the next morning.
