My Nightly Skincare Routine

Every night I use the same products (Except for those super lazy nights where a good cleansing wipe and me is all that's happening! Shhhh!) and I have noticed a difference in how my skin looks and feels. I thought, well what the heck- I'll share with you all!

Step 1- Use a cleansing wipe to wipe off any dirt/makeup.

I like the basic equate wipes, but will also use the samples that come with my Ipsy bags on occasion too. (When all else fails, use a baby wipe!#MommyHack)

Step 2- Use a good facial scrub to wash your face.

I prefer St. Ives. I've used the generics and they are mostly the same, as long as it's the exfoliating scrub type! I rub into my skin in circles and the first wipes off with a warm, wet washcloth and then splash water in my face to get off any excess. I pat dry with a dry towel.

Step 3- Toner.

I'm old school about this and use Sea Breeze astringent. If this isn't a normal for you, it's going to burn. Feel the burn! ;)

Step 4- (As needed) Use a spot acne cream.

I use the Equate generic of Clearasil. Like I said, this is as needed only when I break out.

Step 5- Use a moisturizing night cream.

This is something I've only been doing for a few months and MAN can I see a huge difference!! I use Garnier's Ultra-Lift Miracle Sleeping Cream Anti-Age plus Anti-Fatigue Night Cream which I get on Amazon. I cannot begin to tell you how much I love this product. It moisturizes, firms, evens skin coloring, and has helped IMMENSELY with dark circles.

Side note: Thank you foster care for causing my 28 year old skin so much stress that I now need a night cream. Appreciate it! 

So that's pretty much it!

What does your night routine look like?

As always, leave me some comment love!

great routine! Mine is very similar to yours!! I suppose you can throw in brushing my teeth after washing my face :)

Have you ever put coconut oil on your face? I started doing that recently in place of night creams (though not very faithfully yet) and am interested to see if I notice any differences.

Great routine! I need to get better about mine. Right now I'm using using makeup remover and calling it a day!

@Jessica, Ha! Yes! Teeth brushing! I do that too! :)

@Brooke, No but I use coconut oil for my foster daughter's hair and love the results from that!

@Rachel, I feel you girlfriend! That was my routine for YEARS!!

We have a very similar routine! I usually use either coconut oil or olive oil to remove my makeup instead of wipes. www.littlemissfangirly.blogspot.com

I don't think I have a nightly routine, unless I've worn makeup that day. My skin is weird, if I wash it too much it'll dry out, so I typically only wash my face with a cleanser twice a week.
