NIGHT TIME BEAUTY ROUTINE
Nothing feels better at the end of the day than to rise away the day off your skin. Even though I may not have a job that requires manual labor, I always feel a little gritty at the end of the day, my makeup is usually smuggled, and my hair is not as fresh as it was in the morning. All I want to do at the end of the night is take a long hot shower, pamper myself a little, and curl up in bed with a good book and my cat.
Call me crazy but I find having a nighttime beauty routine oddly relaxing. At least for me it helps me upwind and get in the mindset of going to sleep. I know we all probably have some of favorite products we use before going to bed and I thought I would share mine in the order I use them in my nighttime beauty routine.
Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser// I have been told and read on many accounts that you should always wash your face at night. The reminisce left over from the day on your face is obviously not good for the complexion and can theoretically cause you to age a bit. It is obviously important to have a good face wash and Cetephil is amazing!
LancomeBi-Facil Double-Action Eye Makeup Remover// I know this may not be the usual order of things, but I always use a makeup remover after I was my face, I feel like the makeup comes off easier when done in this order. Once you use Lancome Eye Makeup Remover it Is hard to go back to any other makeup remover. If you dampen a cotton round with some Lancome makeup remover and hold it against your eyelid for a few moments the practically makeup melts off.
Clinique Turnaround Overnight Revitalizing Moisturizer// When I turned 25 I had a bit of a quarter life crisis that caused me to start using nighttime facial cream. I love how this cream goes on light and is not oily at all.
Clinique Moisture Surge Intense Skin// During the winter months I take very hot showers that probably last too long…I am one of those annoying people who always seems to be cold, but a hot shower is always a cure for that. Needless during the winter months I may need a bit more moisture in facial product and the Moisture Surge does the trick – my skin always feels hydrated after I use it.
Clinique All About Eyes// I can’t attest to wheatear or not the two other above creams work to slow down the ageing process, but I can say that this eye cream definitely helps with dark circles and puffiness under the eyes.
Johnson’s Baby Lotion// Last but not least an after bath time lotion. I really love Johnson’s baby lotion for the simple fact that the lotion seems to soak into the skin fairly fast and does a wonderful job of hydrating the skin.
