I never used to think too much about skincare until this year when I started noticing signs that reminded me I’m not 21 years old anymore. So I panicked, researched all the best skincare tips and ways to prevent signs of aging, and started following a routine that worked for my skin. I’m partnering with Kiehl’s to show you exactly what I do to take care of my skin at night and why it’s one of the most important habits I’ve picked up in my 20s.
Your skin’s recuperating abilities are their strongest at night when you’re sleeping – so prepping your skin before you pass out is crucial. After following this night time routine for just a few weeks, I noticed my skin looking brighter and healthier with less dry skin and breakouts. I also found myself putting on less makeup in the mornings – which has made early morning photoshoots easier (and less puffy!). Here are the steps I take from the minute I arrive home at night to the moment I close my eyes to sleep..
Step 1: Hydrate
Drink a full glass of water right when you walk in the door. Drinking at least 8 glasses a day will wash out toxins, hydrate, plump and give your skin a glow.
Step 2: Cleanse
Wash your face & makeup off completely with Midnight Recovery Botanical Cleansing Oil and warm water. It easily removes dirt, oil, and makeup and leaves your skin soft and balanced. The lavender smell is perfect for unwinding before bed.
Step 3: Oils
Cover your entire face in a thin layer of Midnight Recovery Concentrate (2-3 drops). This serum helps your skin restore itself overnight and improves firmness and elasticity. The lavender essential oil scent is so good!
Step 4: Moisturize
Step 5: Eye Cream
