My Nighttime Skincare Routine

MY “Me-Time”

Have you seen my AM Skincare Routine? If not, head on over to see what products and steps I use in the mornings. I’m typically in a major rush to get to the gym/work in the AM, so I unfortunately don’t really have time to enjoy my skincare routine. That’s why I use my nighttime routine as my “me-time” – I love a good pamper session! I know this many steps may seem excessive to some of you, and I also know there isn’t a one-size-fits-all to skincare… but I just wanted to share the products I use and the steps I go through in my nighttime skincare routine! This is what’s worked for me lately, and I hope it helps you in some way.

Is the morning Not Enough?

ANY routine is better than no routine. But I absolutely think PM skincare is essential. BEAUTY REST is real, people! Our skin gets warmer at night, so it’s more susceptible to soak in all of the products that we’re applying. It’s also when our skin repairs and regenerates, so it’s important to feed it the good stuff during that process!

The Products
1. REMOVE MAKEUP // Garnier Micellar Water

This step is ESSENTIAL if you wear makeup during the day. It’s so important to remove your makeup prior to cleansing your face. I’m sure many of you love the Neutrogena Makeup Wipes, but those don’t work for me! They’re far too oily, and they left small bumps in my T-Zone. So after I stopped using those I started using this micellar water. I squirt it directly onto my Shiseido Cotton Pads, then I use the cotton pad to wipe off all of my makeup! TRY THIS STUFF, Y’ALL! Inexpensive – but SO effective at removing all of your makeup!

Price: $8.99

2. CLEANSER // iS Clinical Cleansing Complex

After I remove my makeup, it’s time to cleanse. This step helps remove anything the micellar water left behind. This is the same cleanser I use in the mornings, and I stand behind it 100%. Truly the best cleanser I’ve ever used!

Price: $44 ($37.40 with email sign-up coupon)

3. STEAM & MASK// Amazon Facial Steamer

This step is TOTALLY optional. I try and steam/mask about 2-3 times per week! Steaming should always take place immediately after cleansing. There are SO many benefits to a facial steam (cleans out your pores, enhances circulation, hydrates, removes toxins, and makes your skin more receptive to the rest of your skincare). I LOVE adding this into my pamper routine. I also try and use a mask right after I steam. I’ve tried a lot of masks, but my favorites are THIS ONE (for pores), THIS ONE (for hydration), and THIS ONE (for a sheet mask).

Price: $39 (Masks range from $6-50)

4. TONER // Epionce Balancing Toner

After my cleanser (or after my steam / mask treatment), I always use a toner. This is the same one I use in the mornings! Toners help remove any excess dirt/oils, and it also balances out the pH levels to control acne. Again, I spray this toner all over and gently wipe it off with a Shiseido Cotton Pad.

Price: $30 ($25.50 with email sign-up coupon)

5. SERUM(S) // iS Clinical Active Serum

Serums are made to penetrate deeply into the skin. This skincare step can be individualized based on your skincare concern! For me, I wanted a serum that helped with aging, acne, fine lines/wrinkles, and texture. Y’all. This stuff is expensive but IT IS INCREDIBLE. When this runs out, I will 100% be repurchasing.

Price: $138 ($117.30 with email sign-up coupon)

6. HYALURONIC ACID // iS Clinical Hydra-Cool Serum

As I mentioned in my AM Skincare post, Hyaluronic Acid is something I apply day and night. I use a less expensive option for the mornings, and then I use this Hydra Cool Serum in the evenings. I didn’t realize how much my skin loved this until I ran out and didn’t repurchase it. As soon as I bought it again, my skin was happy! Love this stuff!

Price: $94 ($79.90 with email sign-up coupon)

7. MOISTURIZER // Epionce Renewal Facial Lotion

It’s SO important to seal all of your skincare products in with moisturizer. Since I’m dry, I wanted to make sure I found a moisturizer that really helped revitalize my skin overnight. This stuff is extremely hydrating – I love it!

Price: $98 ($83.30 with email sign-up coupon)

This is the step where I add in my facial tanning drops if necessary. When my skin looks dull or pale, I mix about 4-5 drops of the tanner into my moisturizer before rubbing it in. When I wake up the next morning, my face has the BEST color! HIGHLY recommend these tanning drops!

8. EYE CREAM // NIA 24 Eye Repair Complex

I can’t stress this enough, you guys: EYE CREAM IS SO IMPORTANT! The skin under our eyes is SO delicate and thin. I love this option (especially for the price!). It hydrates, de-puffs, and brightens the under-eye. I always apply it with my ring finger for the least amount of pressure! As great as the NIA 24 eye cream is, my favorite eye cream (and the one that I see the most visual benefits from) is THIS ONE.

NIA 24 Price: $71 (ON SALE NOW – $56.80)

Skinceuticals Price: $98

9. LIP BALM // Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask

I use this day and night, but this lip mask was actually formulated for the nighttime! It’s a thicker consistency, and it truly keeps your lips SO hydrated. Again, this product has over 6,500 5-STAR reviews. A cult favorite – and for good reason!

Price: $20
