Nighttime Skincare Routine

 

IMG_2353

I start out by removing all my makeup and depending on what I have on my face that day I may use my Farmacy Green Clean Makeup Meltaway Cleansing Balm for a more fuller face along with micellar water or just the Milky Jelly Cleanser from Glossier to remove and cleanse. I have a couple other cleansers I use and alternate during the week depending on what I feel my face needs. Twice a week I like to exfoliate my face with either Mario Badescu Glyolic Foaming Cleanser or just plain old baking soda which was recommended to my friend and me from a woman in Ulta with heart shaped glasses. ♥

I then spritz my face with Mario Badescu’s Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs, and Rosewater which I have been using religiously for the past year. Rosewater seems to work really with my skin and I feel like I’m pampering myself when I spray this all over my face and chest. Side-note, I also keep a tiny travel size one at my desk at work for a little midday refresh.

Currently, for nighttime, I am using this thicker eye cream that I received in an Amazon beauty box by SKIN&CO Roma Truffle Therapy Eye Concentrate,. I really like this for nighttime and even though it’s thicker it absorbs nicely. Any excess I like to run around my lips since the skin is very similar and I heard this helps minimize smile lines.

I like to treat my skin with 2 products, first I use The Ordinary Lactic Acid 10% + HA 2% and let that absorb into my skin for a few minutes. Then I use my Kiehls Midnight Recovery Concentrate, which my skin just loves and eats up. When I am really in the pampering mood I use my jade roller which I got off Amazon.com to work in the Midnight Recovery Concentrate.

Once that is all said and done I like to moisturize with coconut oil, my skin is glowing when I wake up in the morning. In fact, I use coconut oil all over my body, kinda putting myself into a coconut oil cocoon.
