I’ve become a bit obsessive about my nighttime skincare routine over the past few years. On any given evening you’re likely to find me changed into comfortable clothes, hair in a messy bun and makeup washed off within 5 minutes of getting home from work. There’s just something so satisfying about shifting into at home mode after a day at the office!
As I approach 30 I’ve become more and more serious about taking care of my skin and sticking to the products that work really well for it to keep breakouts at bay, fight off fine lines and signs of stress. The rundown of my current nighttime skincare routine:
Cosmedix Purity Solution Cleansing Oil: Double cleansing has worked wonders for my skin and starting with dry skin, I use one pump of Cosmedix’s Purity Solution Cleansing Oil – the oil works to break down all makeup (even mascara and eyeliner!) to help get my face truly clean.
bareMinerals Pure Plush Cleanser: I’ve been a huge fan of bareMinerals’ skincare line since it launched a few months ago but only recently discovered their Pure Plush Cleanser – the product lathers really well (you only need to use a little bit!) and leaves face really clean and smooth without being too harsh or drying.
Pixi Glow Tonic Toner: This is the one product I use both day and night! A few drops of Pixi’s Glow Tonic toner on a cotton round helps exfoliate, brighten and smooth skin with glycolic acid. It’s alcohol-free and much gentler than other toners I’ve tried in the past but works wonders for fighting breakouts.
Clinique SMART Custom Repair Serum: This serum is one of those products that claims to do a ton of things but then actually lives up to its claims. Clinique’s SMART Custom Repair Serum does everything from brightening to firming and fighting wrinkles – the product focuses in on what your skin needs most to deliver custom results. I really love it because it leaves your face super soft and works wonders on any acne scarring and fine lines.
Cosmedix Serum 16: I like to consider this one my little secret for still getting carded at bars 😉 Cosmedix’s Serum 16 is packed with retinol and vitamin E so you get all the crazy benefits of retinol (aka wrinkles worst enemy!) without the harsh results + drying. It also boosts moisture which makes it a great prep for night cream!
Origins Night-A-Mins Oil-Free Renewal Cream: My skin can get oily at night so while I love the crazy moisturizing benefits of a traditional thick cream, this option from Origins is oil-free and lightweight while still being packed full of vitamins that renew moisture. I love the way this cream smells and swear I wake up looking brighter and more refreshed every morning after using it!
Kiehl’s Creamy Avocado Eye Treatment: The ultimate under-eye hydration – I’m obsessed with this eye treatment because it instantly moisturizes like crazy and is the only eye cream I’ve ever tried that doesn’t irritate my eyes. A little bit of this eye treatment tapped around your orbital one and you’ll instantly feel refreshed.
