Hey guys 👋 I just finished my night-time skincare routine after a day of wearing heavy makeup in the sunshine 🌞 I can’t believe I was wearing a full face of makeup in the heat we had today. I don’t usually do that & I definitely wouldn’t recommend it cause it feels like your foundation is literally melting into the pores of your skin 😫 but I had no other option therefore I took some extra time ⏲ to really clean my skin tonight & I thought to myself you know what? 🤔 Its about time I share my nightly routine with you guys! So if you wanna know how I keep my skin SMOOTH, SOFT & SUPPLE keep on reading!
We’re all different
Before I fully get into it I have to say that this is my personal routine & what works for me, therefore it might not work for you as all our skin types are different, if you’re unsure about what skin-type category you come under check out my post here. Now I’ve been using this routine since New Years 🎇 & I can really start seeing the effects… looking after you skin requires DEDICATION but it certainly is worth it!
We’re all beautiful
The first thing I ALWAYS do whenever I wear makeup 💄 is use a wipe to clean most of it, I’ve been using makeup wipes for absolute years, those of you who’ve been reading my blog will know that I love my Simple Skincare wipes, read all about them here. I like to do this whilst sitting on my bed catching up on my current Netflix shows 💻 which you can check out here. Then I wash my face with lukewarm water 💦 cause I feel like that helps to open up my pores & I follow by using my FAVOURITE cleanser, which is the Biore Charcoal facewash, read all about it here.
Technology in skincare
Ive been using my Braun Face 810 Facial Cleansing Brush & oh my days 😱 believe me when I tell you that the DEEP cleaning is intense. You know when you wash your face using your fingers ✌️ & then use some toner on a cotton pad, you can see make-up residue on the cotton pad? Well after using this brush your cotton pad will come out looking SO much cleaner than it usually would 🙌 Let me know if you want me to write a full review of the Braun Face brush in the comments👇
After this I wash my face with colder water & let it AIR DRY, I prefer standing infront of a fan tbh, cause its got such a cooling effect 💨. Once my face is dry I use the Soap & Glory eye cream. NEVER 🙅 skip the eye cream, 40 year old you will regret it. I wish someone told me to start using eye cream earlier on in life cause I hadn’t actually discovered it until my Sephora Haul, which you can read all about here. I picked up the Origins Plantscription eye cream at Sephora, but once I was back in the UK 🇬🇧 I wanted to try a budget friendly eye cream so I opted for the Soap & Glory one seeing as their mascara is the BEST mascara I’ve ever used, read about it here.
Jump on the hype
The next thing I use is my Vitamin-E Aqua Boost Sorbet, if you haven’t jumped onto this hype yet you’ll wanna… TRUST ME. I’ve finished an entire tub of it & had to repurchase it, cause it is ah-mazing! 🙌 I actually got my sister hooked on it too & she’s said her skins never looked smoother! The last step in my skincare routine is LIPBALM! I like to apply a lot of lip balm as I love the feel of buttery lips 👄
Love the skin you’re in
So thats it guys… that my current nightly skincare routine, obvs from time to time ill throw in a scrub, a mask & a facial oil, but as far as basic night-time skincare goes this is it!
