I never used to be super into skin care, but recently I have been making an effort to take better care of my skin, and I can really see a difference. I’ve been trying out some new products recently, and these are some of my favorite products for my nighttime skin care routine:
First thing I always do is take off my makeup. Even if I don’t do anything else skincare-wise, I will always remove my makeup! My favorite way to remove eye makeup is with the Almay Eye Makeup Remover Pads. I like that these come in a small little container, so they are really nice for travel. The makeup remover I use for the rest of the face is Neutrogena Makeup Hydrating Makeup Remover Towelettes. I find that using these to remove eye makeup can feel a little rough/scratchy so I typically just use these for other parts of the face, but it leaves the skin feeling very hydrated and clean.
The next thing I do is wash/exfoliate my face. I absolutely love the Neutrogena Deep Clean Gentle Scrub. This is a face wash and exfoliator, but it is gentle enough that it can be used every day. I also have really been liking the Vasanti Brighten Up scrub that I received in my ipsy bag a couple of months ago! This one isn’t meant for everyday use, so I only use it a few times a week, to give my skin a break.
After washing and exfoliating I will use the Clarin’s Toning Lotion, to really get a deep clean. This product can be super drying, and because I already have dry skin I only use this 3-4 times a week. I typically use this on days when I have been wearing a lot of foundation/face product because it really gets all of that product out of your pores and gives a nice deep clean feeling to the skin.
The next thing I like to do is exfoliate my lips using the Elf Lip Exfoliator. This has become one of my favorite Elf products over the last few months, because it is SO amazing! I can really tell the difference in my lips when I haven’t been using it for a few days. I think all of my lipsticks/lip products look so much better on my lips when I have been using this exfoliator every day.
Then I will go in with moisturizer. I have super dry skin, so this is an absolute must for me. I have really been liking the Organic Pharmacy Antioxidant Lip Balm for nighttime because it is super thick and it really moisturizes my lips over night. I also love the Elf Illuminating Eye Cream, and of course the Neutrogena Deep Moisture Night Cream. I have been using this product for a few years now, and it is so good! My skin is so dry and I can just use a little bit of this before I go to bed, and the entire next day my skin will feel so hydrated and refreshed!
