Happy Tuesday! I hope everyone had a great weekend and made it through Monday. I don’t know about you, but after a weekend filled with activities and traveling I need to give my skin some much needed TLC. Between staying up late, some unhealthy eating, sweating through my makeup in this summer heat, and adding some casual glasses of wine into the mix I know my skin can become quite dull and dry.
Today I want to share with you my nightly skin care routine! Of course everyone has different types of skin so what works for me might not work for everyone.
I’ve spent many years trying different face washes to find the best one that suits my skin, which is combination dry and oily. My go to face wash for the past 8 years has been Glycolix 5-2 cleanser. I use this face wash every morning and night and one bottle usually lasts me close to a full year! I like to use a dime amount on a wet face cloth and lightly scrub my skin to get the excess dirt and oil out of my pores after wearing make-up all day.
Next, every other day I will apply my favorite face mask, Blue Tansy AHA + BHA Resurfacing Clarity Mask. This face mask is seriously amazing and like my face wash a little can go a long way! It goes on clear and leaves a slight tingle sensation as it works its magic until I rinse my face 15 minutes later.
Now that my skin is squeaky clean, I apply a small amount of Kiehls Nightly Refining Micro-Peel Concentrate with a cotton ball to help promote a radiant skin texture. This product is great for anyone who may have a rough skin or is looking to even out their skin tone over time.
Of course you can’t forget to take care of your eyes! For this I am currently using Pigmentclar Eyes. This eye cream helps prevent those pesky lines around your eyes while also helping to reduce dark circles. I have always had dark circles under my eyes so I’m constantly looking for the next best product to help make them go away!
And finally it’s time for the most important part, moisturizing! I’m continuously switching up the types of moisturizers I use because I have a tough time finding a lotion I like that doesn’t leave my skin feeling sticky or dry. Lately I’ve been using Garnier Skinactive Moisture Rescue mixed with a tiny drop of Nip + Fab Glycolic Fix Radiance Shot and it does the trick! I no longer walk away from moisturizing feeling sticky, oily or stuck with dry skin dying for moisture. It’s such a game changer and I’m so happy that my search for the best moisturizer is over!
I know this seems like a lot of steps to follow at night, but this is what I’ve found works best for my skin. Unfortunately, I notice a difference if I skip a night and go straight for the moisturizer after washing my face.
Even though it may seem like I’m set on my products, I’m always looking for suggestions on other products to try. Please share your favorite skin care routine products below! I would be more than happy to do a review on them to help spread the information to other readers.
Enjoy your week and keep an eye out for my next post!
