Around this time of year, I’m sure many of us spend more time and effort on skincare. As it gets chillier, my skin tends to get a lot more dry and flakey… (It’s gross I know) so, I thought I’d share my basic nighttime skincare routine!
Wash Your Face:
The first thing I do is cleanse my skin with water before I put on any type of product. Water helps to remove whatever your skin has collected during the day and it also keeps your skin hydrated.
For this step, I use a charcoal foam cleanser from The Face Shop . It removes all the dead skin cells and any other kind of residue from my face. I’ve seen many people use an oil-based cleanser instead to remove makeup, but since this foam cleanser works for me I’ve been sticking to it. Let me know if there are any oil-based cleansers I should try~
Next, I use a rose toner to leave my pores clean and to protect my skin. A tip I’ve used when applying my toner and essence is to lightly tap my skin. That way, you can make sure your skin is absorbing all the product. Also, I’ve learned to pull my skin up when applying products instead of dragging my face down. It helps to lift your face a bit believe it or not.
Apply essence to hydrate the complexion of your skin… I generally use the same steps when applying toner.
If I have time to spare or feel stressed out, I sit myself down for about 10-20 minutes to apply a sheet mask. Depending on what kind of mask you buy, there are different benefits. I generally like to buy whitening, hydrating, and anti-aging masks~ I try to use them at least once a day, or if I’m too busy, I’ll use them once a week.
Lastly, you can pick whichever moisturizer works for you to keep all those skin products locked in.
