I am currently writing this while laying in bed after being the laziest person today as I try and recuperate from the weekend! I absolutely love days and nights like this because I am pampering myself and making myself the freshest and happiest! This routine can go for any time! After spending a couple of days in the dry sun, not only am I tired but my skin is crying for attention! Whether you spend the day traveling, hanging around the pool, out drinking, or just doing absolutely anything, you want to make sure you treat your skin to a pamper day after! The products I’m about to show you are a mix of my everyday and my ‘bounce back’ ones! Now onto my secret products!
To start my routine, I want to take off any makeup that is on my face. Instead of using makeup remover wipes, I like to use the Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm. This product is AMAZING. I could rave about this one for hours! Not only is it so good at its job but its also better for the environment considering you aren’t constantly throwing wipes away. I use this product if I quickly wanna get my makeup off before bed or if I wanna do a full on skincare night. It works either way! If you are going to buy one product from this post I highly suggest this one! If I am in a rush I will use the Rodan + Fields Redefine Eye Cloths. Although these are made for removing eye makeup, they work well for removing other makeup too! If you use a makeup wipe, just remember to rinse your face after!!
After I get all my makeup off, I go in with my Clarisonic Brush and Refreshing Gel Cleanser to really cleanse my skin. This is the face wash I’ve used for so many years and will continue to buy it because its so light and just wonderful…as are all of these products I’m talking about! Typically I only use my Clarisonic if I’m in the shower so on those nights where I just don’t feel like showering, I use either Micellar water or the Bodyshop Tea Tree Toner. By using these, you will get the last little bit of dirt and makeup that could’ve been left on your skin!
Next I am ready to start moisturizing! I have two favorite moisturizers so it really depends on the day. My first moisturizer is one I’ve talked about before and its the Kiehl’s Creme De Corps. This product is so creamy and feels thick but goes on light! My skin just drinks this product up! On the other hand I use the Chanel Hydra Beauty Serum. This product is very light but so hydrating! While my moisturizer is being absorbed, I go in with one of my all time favorite products, the Rodan + Fields Lash Boost. At first I thought this product wasn’t going to work but boy was I wrong! The Lash Boost is better than any extensions! Not only does this product last for a long time but your lashes are all natural! That means you don’t have to worry about your extensions falling out or having to get them filled! I am so happy with this product and anyone who wants longer lashes should give it a try. It takes a couple of weeks to see a difference but I promise it works wonders! The last step for moisturizing is eye cream! Eye cream can be used by anyone, age doesn’t matter! I personally love the Rodan + Fields Multi-Function Eye Cream. A little goes a long way with this product! I lightly pat some of the cream under my eyes and I’m done!
Most people forget about their lips so make sure you aren’t one of them! Your lips need just as much love as the rest of your body. When my lips get dry and flakey, I like to use a Lush Lip Scrub. This will help get all of the dead skin off of my lips and make them soft again! After that I use the C.O. Bigelow My Favorite Night Balm. This balm is hydrating and smooth and I can literally still feel the product when I wake up as if I just applied it.
My last two products are ones that I don’t use every night but do when I need to. The first is the Mario Badescu Drying Lotion. This product is talked about nonstop by people all around and believe me, it works! If I have a pimple or something pop up, I take a q-tip and apply this on the spot and let it do its job! Then, if you are feeling like you wanna give your skin a little treat, use a face mask! I really love the Fresh Rose Petal Face Mask but really, any face mask will do the job! Just find one that works for your skin type and you’ll be all set!
