Nightly Skin Care – My Rituals and Must Haves

Every night before I climb into my comfy bed, I have to
devote at least 10 minutes to my face. If I go even one day without doing my nightly skin care routine, my next
few days (sometimes weeks) will be filled with giant blemishes and me in a bad
mood because of it! I have moderate
acne, and when not treated properly, I will get cystic acne that takes FOREVER
to clear up (not to mention it is super painful). So, once I found a routine that worked, I
stuck with it and haven’t really changed it up much. I literally do this every night. Even if I go camping, I bring all my products
with me and find a way to do my routine. My husband understands because he knows
how important it is to avoid the painful breakouts, but I am sure everyone else
around thinks I am just high maintenance. I don’t even care! I gotta do
what I gotta do!

I start by removing all my make-up and oils that have built
up throughout the day (I have combo to oily skin). First, I use a facial wipe all over my face – Olay Fresh Effects Make-Up Remover Cloths.  Then,
I use Neutrogena Oil-Free Eye Make-Up Remover so I don’t look like a scary raccoon in
the morning.  

Once my make-up is removed, I exfoliate with warm water and St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub.

After towel drying, I apply my prescription acne medication (Clindagel) which was
prescribed by my Dermatologist. 

I think it is super important to pay attention to delicate
areas like your eyes and neck. Start
young and you will thank yourself when you get older. I am 31 and wish I had started at 16! For my eyes, I use Clinique Repairwear Laser Focus eye cream. I put this all around my eyes – underneath, on the sides (where crows
feet develop), and all over my eyelids. 
For my neck moisturizer, I switch it up every now and then. Lately, I have been using the OROGOLD Deep Renewal Night Cream. This is pretty expensive, so I
will probably switch to something else after it’s gone – like my Clinique Dramatically Different moisturizing lotion. You can even use a drug
store brand if that’s all you can get your hands on – as long as you use
something! The neck area is one of the
first places women start showing their age, so make sure you treat it right.

And here’s a little #ootn (outfit of the night)
inspiration:  my new Ralph Lauren
jammies. Aren’t they adorable? I scooped them up last week at T.J. Maxx. I seriously want every color.

So that’s it! I know
everyone has their own skin issues, and, therefore, has their own skin care
routine. This is just what I do and will
do every night until it stops working!
