Must-Have Nighttime Skincare
What nighttime skincare routine do you follow, and has it adjusted since working from home? What order do you apply your products in to get the best results?
In the last few years, our world has undergone an immense transformation; however, my nightly ritual hasn’t changed much. Although I modify or add some items to it periodically based on what feels best for me, this regimen is super effective in giving me healthy skin, even though I was a huge fan of retinoids before this regime and still am!
Before anything else, I take one day out of the week to completely decompress. This can be something as simple as wearing some makeup (like Limitless Mascara, Green Tea SPF 30, 2nd Skin Concealer, and a spritz of Botanicals Rose Hibiscus Coconut Water Hydrating Face Mist) for video calls or doing yoga and running outside while adhering to social distancing protocols. Other times I find myself cleaning my home from top to bottom so that it’s spotless by the end of the day—no matter what activity I choose, at least one full day is dedicated to self-care!
I remember using oily cleansers long ago when I had an oily complexion, and since then, my love for them has only intensified. Oils are the best way to rid your skin of excess oil as well as makeup, and the Charcoal Clay Cleanser does it perfectly! Not like some other oils that leave a residue on your face; this one rinses away completely, leaving behind nothing but softness and contentment.
Shortly afterward, I pat COSRX’s essence onto my dampened skin for improved absorption. This formula is fortified with panthenol, which not only helps to reduce wrinkles and breakouts but also improves the dryness of the skin. After a few moments of letting it saturate my complexion, its active ingredients began to work their magic!
To ensure that my skin is receiving the most comprehensive treatment, I depend on both a water-based essence and an oil-based serum for optimal nourishment. After using a water-based product to penetrate through multiple pathways, I like to follow up with C-Tetra Serum, one of the best oil-based serums available!
No matter your skin type, this magical oil is sure to be a game-changer. It may look like any other face oil, but it’s actually more of an intensive treatment than a simple moisturizer. Not only does it smell amazing, but the results are even better! This unique product will make you realize how special and effective it truly is. I use mine every single night, and my skin looks fabulous!
When my skin is feeling particularly parched, I apply a layer of moisturizer after allowing the serum to soak in and work its wonders. Right now, Retinol Restorative Overnight Balm is at the top of my list, as it leaves an incredibly nourishing finish that lasts throughout the day.
If I’m in the mood for some gentle overnight firmness along with my usual moisturizer, then there’s no better choice than Seaberry Moisturizer. But when I want to up the ante on taking care of my skin, I layer The Face Cream Mask amazing overnight moisture mask over everything else—and trust me, if you give it a try once, you’ll be head-over-heels in love with your radiant complexion come morning!
If You’re Looking To Wake Up in Love With Your Skin
Every week, I use my oil cleanser to wash my face and then apply an overnight peel pad. These pads are incredibly powerful; they contain salicylic and glycolic acids, which break down dull skin cells to promote a brighter, smoother complexion as well as help clear acne and discoloration. All you need is one application per week—when you wake up the next morning, your skin will be glowing with health!
