At night it is important to take off any makeup before bed. This will help keep skin healthy, and will help with break outs. This is important even if you don’t wear makeup.
Starting with my Clinique take the day off. This product starts off as a heavy cream, then once you apply it to a dry face in circular motions, it will turn into an oil, this helps to break down all the makeup or dirt from the day. When ready to wash away, I like taking a little bit of water and still work it in a little more. by doing this, it will turn into a milky substance. Then wash off.
What I love about this product is, that it doesn’t leave your face oily.
I take my Garnier skin active Micellar water, This helps to remove what could still be left over from the first step. Just put on a cotton pad and wipe over face and neck. The great thing about this product is, you don’t need to rinse it off, I take this with me when I go camping!
Using my Clinique clarifying lotion, I take a new cotton pad and apply this all over my face. This helps with even out your skin tone. This step also works with a toner. They both do the same thing. Clinique has a 3 step skin care, witch is a face wash, the clarifying lotion and an face cream.
Taking a serum or treatment, apply a minute after putting clarifying lotion or toner on, or until it is completely dry. The serum has ingredients that your skin needs, so by using serums, it puts those ingredients back into your skin. I am using the Mint pear. I received this product in my Ipsy glam bag. I like how it works, but it leaves my skin a little sticky. That’s okay to me. I believe all serum’s leave that feeling. But I’m am not sure.
Last step but not least, onto moisturizer! I love my Elizabeth Arden night cream! A little goes along ways. It’s important to put a moisturizer on Day and night.
A night cream is a lot heavier then a day cream, the reason is that our skin repairs itself while we sleep, Night creams generally formulated with ingredients that help nourish the skin for further repair.
When having a skin routine for the day and night. The secret is to start with the lightest Products to the heaviest.
