Nighttime Beauty Routine : 6 steps to Eliminate DRY SKIN
As a blogger I have a very privileged opportunity to test out several beauty products , so i'm never without something to use every day . I’ve testing out so many different product combinations, but with Dry skin it can be the toughest challenge trying to keep your hydrated. I’ve come up with a Nighttime Beauty Routine that keeps my skin soft and moisturised!
Let’s be real, I wear concealer , liquid foundation and also powdered foundation on a daily basis .. I know you're probably thinking jeez that's A LOT Abbi . ...But with an uneven skin tone and the fact that my skin would dry out after 10 mins of outside air , I Think it’s totally necessary. THE SKIN BARRIER IS NEEDED Y’ALL!
So let’s break down each Product I use every night to remove that baked cake off my face, and how I keep it hydrated all night!
I start with the KIKO SOFTENING TONER. This product is ACE at getting off makeup! It’s a light spray that I throw onto a cotton pad and simple wipe the makeup away! It certainly doesn't completely clean my face , it just eliminates those top makeup layers. I've found that it does a great job at removing waterproof mascara too!
Now it's time to prep my skin for that deep cleanse . Ill use the ARK PRE CLEANSE. It’s so simple to use. The product is a thick clear liquid , almost the consistency of a quality shower gel. Simply place it all over your face , (i like to rub it in a little as it adds in moisture to your skin) then wash off with lukewarm water.
Now this next product is a surprising favourite of mine! I was given the full range of products by AIME, at a blogger event , and let me tell you … I AM IN LOVE WITH THIS SCRUB. I tried pretty much all that was given to me and this stood out by a long shot! I suffer from clogged pores in my T-zone . So clogged that it needs to be unclogged every day! I really don't like to use pore strips because they cause the skin on my nose to crack or peel . Please excuse the gory details . So after using this product my pores are clog free for roughly two days at time .. BUT HEY THAT'S BETTER THAN EVERY DAY RIGHT!?
The AIME EXFOLIATING POLISH is actually a creamy texture like lotion , with small red microbeads to help with the light skin scrubbing.
Next I'll use a bit more of the Kiko toner and reduce the low moisture level at this point. Plus this is the perfect opportunity to give myself a full face wipe down incase I missed a bit of makeup here and there .
Followed with the SOND HYDRATING FACIAL SPRAY
LASTLY I apply a the HEAVEN DREAM OIL SERUM for final moisture . I opt for an oil products because it has 5 hours of my sleep time to sink into my face and make sure my face is extremely moisturised throughout the night! . Also prepped for my morning routine !
ALRIGHT nighttime routine is complete!
Let’s remind ourselves of the dry skin no more formula!
- Oil based MAKEUP REMOVER or TONER - get rid of any makeup you may have on your face! The last thing you want to do is sleep with makeup on … you'll be punished with a breakout the next day!
- PRE CLEANSE - with an oil based product - Prep your skin for the harsh scrubbing it’s about to endure!
- Oil Based DEEP PORE SCRUB or MASK - get all of the dirty skin layers off while adding moisture to the layers beneath.
- OIL BASED TONER - yes again! Make sure there is no more makeup left on your face. This is your last chance!
- OIL BASED .. OIL .. a few drops will do the trick . ( I also recommend Drops of light and Drops of youth by TBS)
