After writing my Day in the life post I realized that I could embellish on what exactly my night beauty routine is since it has been helping me have beautiful soft skin. Like many I had been plagued with acne for most of my teenage years and early twenties. Trying many products and having horrible reactions or being mislead by fancy bottles I have found a great combination of products that have been working splendidly.
The first thing I do at the end of any long day is of course remove my make-up. They're not pictured here but I use ABSOLUTE! make-up cleansing tissues. These make-up tissues are loaded with Vitamin E and Green Tea Extract. They thoroughly remove eye-liner, shadow, lipstick, blush and waterproof mascara without skin irritation. It takes me about two clothes to remove my make-up, but they leave my skin feeling soft moisturized and completely clean after each use.
Even though my skin feels clean from just my make-up remover its still good to actually wash your face. I picked up this facial scrub recently but absolutely love it. I use the Super Facialist by Úna Brennan in Rose Hydrate. This facial scrub is meant to bring back radiant to dull, tired or sensitive skin. This doesn't have much of a sent to it, but it really does the trick in cleansing and exfoliating my skin to leave a much more smoother and even toned complexion. You won't see results right away, it took about a week of using once every night to fully start seeing the effects.
Now I do have acne prone skin, so after I do wash my face with the scrub I like to use a cleanser. I've tried many products but I have fallen in love with the H2O brand and this acne clarifying cleanser is great because its not just for face but for body as well. This triple action formula combines salicylic acid and a shine-controlling complex to remove pore-clogging debriss and prevent the formation of future acne breakouts. This product is also infused with Vitamin E like my make-up removers which helps leave my skin refreshed.
After putting my face through all that work I like to give myself a treat. I alternate days between these two masks but they have helped tremendously with helping my complexion, the feel of my skin and impurities from regular make-up use, sun exposure, acne and just regular aging. The two face masks I'm loving is from Formula 10.0.6 which is a Deep Down Detox Ultra-Cleansing Mud Mask with orange and bergamot. This detox mask has helped create a clearer and brighter complexion with cleansing out impurities. The orange is meant to recharge my skin while sea salt cleanses and bergamot balances. It recommends to use only 1-3 times a week so I use it every Monday, Wednesday and Friday (just like my blog posts!). The second mask I use is from Freeman Feeling Beautiful. It is a Facial Enzyme Mask with pineapple. This is a two in one mask which is meant to exfoliate the skin removing dull skin cells and stimulates skin renewal which leaves you feeling revived and refreshed. This mask is recommended to be used twice a week or as often as needed so I use it every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday giving my face a break from the extra treatments on Sundays.
Both masks are only meant to be left on for 10-15 minutes and then rinsed with warm water. I only pat dry my skin because this next product seems to work and apply better with slightly damp skin. This is a product I received in a Glossybox a bit ago and really enjoy the help it provides. This would be the Kueshi Pure & Clean Revitalizing face toner made with aloe vera, chamomile and calendula. What's great about this product is that not only is it paraben free but it lasts a long time, you pour maybe a dime size amount on a cotton pad and pat it on to your face gently. Much like the Enzyme mask its meant to moisturize and re-balance your skin. I combine this with a very small amount of H2O Marine Daily hydrator (oil-free) right before bed and leave it on all night. Waking up in the morning my skin couldn't feel softer.
This nightly routine has helped my skin tremendously. If I'm in a hurry or having a bit of a lazier day I can still go out with minimal make up, absolutely no concealer or foundation and get compliments on my vibrant and glowing skin.
I hope this has given you an idea into some products to try, I would just like to remind you all this is not a sponsored post and these are all my personal opinions of the mentioned above products.
