The Beauty Edit: October // My Current Nighttime Skincare Routine

I’m always surprised when people tell me I have good skin.

Nighttime Skincare Routine

Who knew that by taking a few simple steps your skin could be great. I’ll preface this by saying two things:

  • I really only got into skincare this year, and I can’t take credit for it. Linda forced me to start getting into a routine.
  • I’ve never really had terrible skin. I’d get a few pimples here and there, but nothing major. Trust me, I know I’m lucky.

Like I mentioned above, I started really caring about my skin this year after Linda pretty much yelled at me for not already having one. Now, I’m pretty interested in skincare: whether it’s trying out new products or just looking forward to doing my routine. I know not everyone is super into skincare, but it’s definitely important and just something we have to do. I wanted to share my skincare routine today, and talk a little more in depth about the products I use on a daily basis.

Just as a note, I have pretty normal skin; sometimes I’ll go through phases of an oily chin or super dry forehead and cheeks.

Nighttime Skincare Routine

I start my routine by washing my face using Fresh Soy Face Cleanser. I like this cleanser because it’s super lightweight, doesn’t have a strong scent, and really gentle on my skin. 2-3 times a week I will exfoliate with Fresh Umbrian Clay Purifying Mask. If I’m being honest, this is a super intense product. I’m always really careful when I’m exfoliating because I don’t want to irritate my skin. I definitely notice a difference between my skin after exfoliating — way smoother! After I cleanse and exfoliate, I use my Fresh Rose Deep Hydration Facial Toner. My sister actually introduced me to this product, and once I started using consistently, I fell in love! It’s not thick or greasy, and it’s super hydrating…something that’s super important to me.

Okay now my face is all prepped and ready for phase two of my skincare routine. LOL

Next, I use my Fresh Black Tea Kombucha Facial Essence. This is a new-er to me product, once again because Linda told me I needed one (see her post on it here). I’m still not 100% sold on it, but apparently the benefits of an essence are amazing. It’s a little thicker than water, and while it feels oily to me on my hands, it doesn’t feel oily on my skin. It’s super hydrating so far!

Okay, now we’re onto a product that finally isn’t Fresh (I do really just love their products). I alternate between IOPE Live Lift and Tula’s Illuminating Face serum. Both of them have a nice texture, and go on really nicely after using my essence. I recently heard Vitamin C is really good for the skin, so I also picked up Olehenriksen’s Truth Serum. Just for good measure, ya know?

Oh. You thought I was done? Nope. Not yet.

Next up: IOPE Super Vital Eye Cream. In the past, I’ve used eye gels, but I’m LOVING IOPE’s eye cream. It’s pretty thick for an eye gel, but I love that you don’t have to use a ton. And finalllllllly (well, product wise), I use my Glow Recipe Watermelon Sleep Mask or the Laneige Water Mask. I personally love the amount of hydration my skin gets overnight with either of these masks. So in order to make them last longer, I just switch them on and off.

Honorable mention:

  • Sheet masks are fun! I typically use a sheet mask (a hydration one, LOVE these) 1-2 times a week for 20 minutes. I do my masks after cleansing and toning. I also have used the Sephora sheet masks (remember this post on Instagram?), and enjoy them! I’m looking into different kinds of masks, so if you have any recommendations, I’d love to know.
  • Jade roller to help increase circulation and reduce puffiness.
  • This facial wand helps open and close your pores to help absorb products more.and reduce puffiness!

AND THERE YOU HAVE IT. Super simple, right? Do you have an extensive skincare routine, or are you more of a wash and go kinda person?
