After a long day, you get home and all you want to do is have a relaxing night in. I know in the past I’ve been so tired I’ve neglected taking care of my skin before going to bed. A nightly skincare routine is one of the most important parts of your day! A long day can do a lot of damage to your skin, but don’t worry here is an easy evening skincare routine!
Remove Your Makeup
First things first take off all your make up from the day. This step is simple and easy use a makeup wipe. For me, personally, I have sensitive skin and I prefer to use the Simple Micellar Makeup Remover Wipes. This brand is for those who have sensitive skin and was voted number one best makeup remover wipes by consumers in 2020. For those of you who don’t have sensitive skin and maybe want to try a different brand I also recommend the Kareway Epille Argan Oil makeup wipes. Whatever your preference is just make sure this is the first step you take in your nightly skincare routine.
End of the Day Cleanser
After we’ve gotten all of today’s makeup off the next step is using a cleanser to really get all the damaging agents off our face from the day. You want to use a nightly cleanser that will not cause irritation and remove all of your skin’s natural oil. CeraVe is a good drug store cleanser brand for dry skin types it is very hydrating face wash. Cetaphil is another good drug store brand cleanser but for oily skin. If you are looking for a cleanser that works a little better and are willing to spend more than I recommend IS Clinical. This cleanser works well on all skin types and is highly recommend by dermatologist. As said in the morning skincare routine wash your face with warm water with your choice of cleanser in a circular motion for 10-60 seconds.
Next we are going to use toner! Toner is a very important part of your nighttime routine. It helps balance PH and moisture levels on your skin. Pixi Skintreats is a good toner for your nightly skin care routine it can be found in most drug stores. When you apply the toner use a cotton ball not a tissue. Cotton ball’s are gently on the skin and perfect when applying toner.
Serum and Lotion
This is where your skin routine gets a little bit more personal and specific for your skin type. If you have any acne or breakouts on your face I highly highly recommend using tea-tree oil. All you need is a little dab on a cotton ball and you are good to go. Tea-tree oil is a natural oil that helps calm redness and swelling. If you are suffering from acne scars or any other scars on your face use Bio-Oil, just like the tea tree oil dab a little onto a cotton ball and put it on your acne scar. After this you must moisturize your face! CeraVe Skin Renewing Night Cream works wonders. This moisturizer has a non greasy texture and is also recommended by dermatologist.
Drink a Cup of Chamomile Tea
Wait we are almost done just one more step! You need to make you a hot cup of chamomile tea. Chamomile tea is known to have anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties in it. Now, your probably wondering what those two things mean or have anything to do with healthy skin. These two properties are phenomenal for the skin they fade sun spots, help eradicate acne scars and even fight breakouts! Not only is this tea good for your skin but it also helps you get a great night sleep. Once you’ve made your tea, climb in bed, put on a movie and just relax.
