I hope your all enjoying my skin care week! You will have seen the updated day time post earlier in the week, if you missed it you can find it here.
I am also linking in my winter version of this post , you can find this here
I still like to take time to really look after my skin at night-time, I love the feeling of taking my “face” off and its a few minutes I get to myself!
I also do a steam and deep cleanse and treatment one or twice a week, but that’s coming in a separate post! So here we go ladies!
I’m not going to bang on about how important it is to cleanse the skin, we already know all that ! What I am going to bang on about is cleansing the skin properly! especially after a day at work with make up and god knows what on your poor skin!
I love the DHC deep cleansing oil to take my make up off, this breaks down everything including waterproof mascara. when you add water to it turns into a milk and really leaves the skin feeling beautifully clean and fresh! I rinse this off then use my No 7 facial cleansing brush I use this with a pea size about of facial cleanser. At the moment I’m using the Clarins Gentle Foaming cleanser. Paired together these two leave the skin feeling fresh, clean and smooth.
I always use a toner, its a really important step that a lot of people miss out . I’m using the Botanics brightening toner at the moment I really like it! Using a toner gets rid of any cleanser , oil or make up left on the skin. It also helps to close and tighten the pores and rebalance the skins natural PH.
It’s important to look after the eye area, as the skin around the eyes is thinner and ages quicker because of this , I really like to use the Kiehls creamy eye treatment it’s very moisturising and nourishing! I did a review of it, which you can find here.
Moisturising at night is an important step! The skin rebalances and rejuvenate’s so its important we help it on its way! I’m a fan of facial oils at bed time ! my favourite is the Clarins Blue Orchid Oil , this is a hydrating facial oil that can be used on its own or under a night cream. I always feel like my skin looks more radiant and plump the morning after I’ve used this!
I like to use the Avon youth restore moisturizer at night as well. This definitely helps my skin to feel much supple and even. I use this every night and I really feel like I’ve seen a difference since using this!
The other thing I do is change my pillow case regularly, so that I’m not sleeping in bacteria etc, I also drink lots of water , I find this helps to keep my skin clear!
I also use masks, exfoliators and a steamer. Find out more later in the week!
Have you got any recommendations for night-time products let me know, I’m always on the look out for new pieces!
