Updated Night Skin Care Routine

Hey there! 🐩

Last week I posted about my morning skin care routines and I want to follow that up with a night routine along with my sister. The other two sisters are lazy so I won’t include them. I’ll just do another post for them as they have dry skin.

To be honest, I usually am tired after a long day and I’m just so lazy to do anything other than sleep after I feed my kitten 🐈. So I’ll be doing a Really lazy routine and My skin hates me I want it to look better routine this time.

πŸ” The Really Lazy Routine:

1. Face wash

Yes I love this face wash by The Saem because it doesn’t dry my skin and it removes impurities, sebum, sweat and all of that in one go. I’ll write a review on this soon πŸ‡

Angel uses Happy Bath Yogurt Face Wash in Grain. This does what mine does but this removes blackheads better. Although I like the Essence one better than the Grain variant.

2. Treatment toner

We both have acne problems and excessive sebum production. So we use this to help clear and prevent acne on our faces. Her skin is getting a lot better, all that’s left are a few spots here and there and a lot of acne marks. Review here!

Okay that’s it haha! πŸ˜‚ I’m not kidding. We just want to make sure that our faces are clean and that our pimples are taken care of. This doesn’t make our skin hydrated so this probably is a bad idea for everyday.

🍱 The Let’s Love Our Skin Better For A Clearer, Healthier Skin Routine:

1. Oil cleanser

This cruelty free all natural oil cleanser from Human Heart Nature is amazing! It helps break down makeup, sweat, oil, dust that accumulated on the skin through the day.

2. Face wash

To remove all dirt, sweat, makeup residue.

3. Clay mask

We use this to detoxify our skin and pores, have tighter pores, and brighter complexion. Using this before the treatment toner makes it penetrate my skin better and I find that it helps my skin drink the next products well. I’ll write about this soon! 🐈

4. Treatment toner

I really can’t do my skin care without this. (Check it out here!)

5. Hydrating toner

To prevent excess sebum production we make sure to use a hydrating toner as it helps deliver the next products deep in the skin.

6. Sheet Mask

Optional. Only when I have extra time or for when my skin feels particularly dry. Extra hydration boost for a deeper skin hydration.

7. Serums

There are a lot of types of serums/essences. These are thicker than toners, but thinner than lotions/creams. It’s considered the heart of the routine as each serum/essence has its specific problem target:

  • Anti-ageing
  • Hydrating
  • Pore tightening
  • Whitening
  • Lifting
  • Wrinkle care

And a lot more. Take your pick!

For me I use The Face Shop Bifida All in One serum as it helps condition my skin well. Er.. it helps with my skin problems πŸ˜‚ I had a post about this, tell me if you want to read about it I’ll repost it 😊

For her it’s Galactomyces Serum to brighten her skin and reduce the acne marks. I also use this.

8. Eye cream

To help already present wrinkles and fine lines and prevent them. Review here!

9. Moisturizer

To finish it all off, we lock everything in while we give our face a little massage.

 

TIPS:

  1. Clay or detoxifying masks/pacts are used 2 to 3 times a week depending on your skin condition.
  2. Use a serum or essence that works for you. One that will help with your target problems. Same goes for toners and moisturizers.
  3. Treatment toners are optional of course. If you don’t need it don’t use it.
  4. When layering products always start from thinnest to heaviest. Give your skin a little massage.
  5. A great tip I learned is that damp face absorbs better, and layering products when they are not completely dry works best specially if your problem is dehydrated or dry skin as this will ensure that your skin is absorbing the products well.
  6. Layering one product after the last one have already dried is like trying to get in a sealed gate.
  7. DON’T OVER DO IT. It will cause more problems than fix any.
  8. It’s really okay to use what you use in the morning! πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘
  9. Never exceed the time indicated on the sheet mask packet. This will ensure that your skin is moisturized and hydrated. Leaving it on too long or even overnight will just dry the sheet and taking moisture from your skin in the process.

 

Gentle Reminders:

  1. Do remember that you do skin care routines to help your skin. Your skin’s problems/concerns. It’s relaxing too.
  2. It’s about the ingredients and formulation that your skin will accept.
  3. Always do a patch test, see if your skin would react badly to the product.
