Night Time Skincare Routine

Did you know that cell turnover works faster when we sleep? This is why we must wash our face thoroughly every single night. Even if you haven’t worn makeup at all that day. There are so many pollutants in the air that gets trapped into our skin. A consistent and a proper night time skincare routine will help reverse years from our face. It can improve your skin tone and reduce blemishes. The image above shows the 9 essential products I use to prep my skin right before going to bed. Mind you, I don’t use exfoliation or face mask every single day, only used as directed. First, I use Aveeno makeup removal wipes only when I wear makeup. I use this to remove the dirt, excess oil and makeup off my face. Second, I lather my face wash in circular motion with Om Aroma Champagne Cleanser. Third, I exfoliate my face in a gentle matter. My favorite one is Joanna Vargas Exfoliating Mask, it leaves my face hydrated and radiant. I leave it on for 10 minutes or overnight. I let the fruit enzymes and vitamin c work its magic. Fourth, I apply a layer of Eminence Strawberry Rhubarb Masque and let it sit on my face for about 5-10 minutes. I rinse off with lukewarm water. Hot water will dry your skin. I pat dry my face with a towel. Then I apply Clarins Toning Lotion with Chamomile. My obsession! It leaves your skin soft and hydrated. I find a toner very useful because the moisturizer glides on easily. Fifth, I use Joanna Vargas Rejuvenating Serum as my moisturizer. The oil penetrates into my skin and leaves a nice lasting moisture shield.  I also dot on the rejuvenating serum then eye apply eye cream for an extra dose of moisture. Sixth,  Algenist Complete Eye Renewal Balm. It’s a multitasking product that diminishes wrinkles, fine lines, dark circles and puffiness. Don’t tug and pull while applying around the eye, gently dab the product on.  Last but not least, drink a glass of water an hour before going to bed. You wouldn’t want to wake up in the middle of the night to use the restroom. Voilà, next morning your face will look healthier, radiant and rejuvenated. Stay consistent and you will see better results. Pick out products that will work for your skin type, don’t get discouraged if you don’t see drastic results the next morning. No product will work overnight, you’ll start seeing results within a few weeks or 2 months.
