I don’t often change up my skincare routine and that is why the last time I did one of these was literally a year ago. Since I have incorporated a few new products and techniques in my routine I decided it was about time to share with you all my current night time skincare routine so let’s get in to it!
FACE WASH & EXFOLIATING BRUSH
Whether or not I have makeup on, I will always go in with a face wash first. Currently I have been using this Green Tea & Enzyme Powder Face Wash by Wishtrend. I had no idea that a thing such as ‘powder face wash’ even existed until I used this. As the name suggests, it comes out as a powder and all you have to do is add a few drops of water and swirl it in to a thick paste and apply it to your face. For some reason, I find this process very therapeutic and it leaves my skin looking instantly cleaner and brighter.
Something new that I have been doing is using this face exfoliating brush to massage the face wash on to my skin and I kid you not, my skin has never felt smoother, softer and cleaner after using this technique. I highly recommend you all to try this out; it is basically like using one of those electric facial brushes (clarisonic) except WAY cheaper but you do need to make sure to keep it clean at all times. The soft bristles of the brush help to gently exfoliate the skin in ways that your fingers can not and remove any debris or impurities.
I now go in with a product that I am sure you all are very well aware of- the Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water to remove any excess makeup or dirt left on my skin and I usually only do this if I was wearing makeup previously; if not, I will simply use some rose water as a toner.
I have only recently incorporated a serum in to my skincare routine. Previously, I only heard people saying how great serums are for the skin but never really knew its true purpose. Serums are basically lightweight moisturizers that sink in deeper in to the skin. “Serums can give your skin a firmer/smoother texture, make pores smaller and increase moisture levels”- Celebrity Artist (Kristofer Buckle). I have been using this ‘Klairs Rich Moist Soothing Serum’ for a few weeks now but I am yet to see any major results so I will continue using it to see if it affects my skin positively.
For moisturizer, I will either go in with my all time favourite moisturizer from Bioderma- Hydrabio Crème which I highly recommend to anyone with dry skin (it feels super light weight but does such a great job at moisturizing the skin) or I will use coconut oil depending on how dry my skin is feeling (I mostly use coconut oil at night as it is heavy).
Lastly, I will go in with a super rich and moisturizing hand cream and at the moment I have been loving using the bath & body works hand creams- they just smell so good! This is a step I often tend to forget so I am trying as much as I can to make it a habit and keep my hands soft and hydrated!
