I believe that a night time skin care regimen is the most important step in your day. I have updated my routine and made some changed and I am LOVING it! I have been keeping to a strict routine every night and the difference in my skin is crazy good! I can see such improvement in my skin's texture, tone and feel. My skin care issues are dryness, sensitivity as well as AGING!!! I know all women in my age range want to fight the clock and I think I am doing just that following this routine. As always, please comment or ask any questions below. XOXO
Step 1 REMOVE MAKEUP
Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes: I love these wipes for removing all my makeup before I wash my face. These wipes are so gentle on my skin yet they even remove all my eye makeup.
Step 2: CLEANSE
Philosophy Purity Cleanser: This is the first face wash in probably forever that I repurchase over and over again. It just leaves my skin so clean and fresh and hydrated. I purchase mine from QVC and they always have great deals
Step 3: TONE
Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner: I apply this to my face after washing with a square cotton pad. This toner contains glycolic acid and grapefruit extract, both alpha-hydroxy acids, that work together to exfoliate and refresh dry, clogged skin, minimize discoloration, soften the look of fine lines and reduce pore congestion that can make skin look tired and dull. I have shared a bunch of Mario Badescu's products in the past and keep going back to this line.
Step 4: SERUM
Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II: I started using this serum every night about three months ago and I have seen such great results. I just apply one dropper full all over my face and neck. It improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, hydrates skin, and creates an even-toned, healthier-looking, and refreshed complexion.
Step 5: MOISTURIZE
Philosophy Renewed Hope in a Jar Night Cream: My last step in my routine is moisturizing and this is probably the most important step! I love this thick and creamy formula it keeps my hydrated all night. This deeply hydrating moisturizer continuously replenishes, gently renews, and re-energizes for better-looking skin overnight.
I also add in a treatment 2-3 nights a week:
m-61 PowerGlow Peel Pads: These powerful fine-line treatment peel exfoliates, resurfaces, clarifies and firms skin in one quick step. Reduces pore size and fine lines and improves skin tone, texture and clarity. I usually do these pads two or three times a week.
Sisley Black Rose Cream Mask: THIS is the mask you are probably tired of hearing about because I cannot stop raving about it! Rich in active anti-aging ingredients, this mask immediately gets to work on signs of fatigue and leaves your skin looking youthful and energized. It brings together three actions—revitalizing, softening and hydrating—to restore a luminous complexion. It is a staple in my skin care regimen.
