I thought that today I would share with you my nightly skincare routine. It’s not super involved; it takes me around ten minutes to complete, but it is different from my morning skincare routine.
Before we begin, the lighting in my room is, not great. So I apologize in advance.
NIGHTLY SKINCARE ROUTINE
STEP ONE. CLEANSE.
The first thing that I do is (obviously) take off any makeup that I was wearing that day. Lately, I haven’t been wearing any makeup to give my skin a chance to breathe, but if I am wearing makeup I will take it off using by Purity Made Simple Facial Cleanser by Philosophy.
STEP TWO. FACE MASK.
I like to use a face mask close to every night if possible, although I know it’s not great. I currently switch off between the Pixi Glow Mud Mask and the Pixi Peel and Polish Enzyme Peel. If I’m using the mud mask, I’ll exfoliate first using my St. Ive’s Bright Skin Apricot Scrub. If I’m using the enzyme peel, I won’t exfoliate because the mask is pretty strong. Both of these masks say to use 2-3 times per week so I like to switch off each night during a typical five-night school week.
STEP THREE. CLEANSE AGAIN.
I will take a shower in between steps two and three, but I don’t do anything to my face in the shower. After I get out of the shower, I cleanse my face again using the Pixi Glow Mud Cleanser. I take a little bit of this and massage it into my skin for thirty seconds before rinsing, focusing on areas of congestion like my forehead, where I tend to get plugged pores. If you haven’t noticed yet, I’ve totally been loving the Pixi skincare line right now.
STEP FOUR. TONE.
I like to tone my face using the ever-famous Pixi Glow Tonic. I had never really noticed a difference whilst using toner until I started using this one – my skintone is a lot more evened out and I’m loving it. I’ve been using a lot of Pixi products because I love that they’re all about finding your skin’s natural glow. I love not having to wear makeup and having that flawless skin appearance without it, so Pixi products are so far the ones for me.
STEP FIVE. MOISTURIZE.
I finish my skincare routine my moisturizing my face and eyes using my Yes to Carrots Nourishing Night Cream and my CeraVe Eye Repair Cream. I tend to get dry skin under my eyes and also along my nose and between my eyebrows, and both of these products really work to combat that whilst I sleep.
That is basically it for my nightly skincare routine. Of course I don’t have perfect skin, but I really like the way these products work for me!
Leave me a comment if you’d like to see my morning skincare routine. Also, what do you use on a nightly basis?
