Hello loves, how has the beginning of 2020 been for you so far? I hope that it’s been amazing and that you have started this year with glowy skin. The key for me is to stick to my skincare routine. Especially my nighttime one, because that is when I use my best products and I wake up with great skin. There is a specific product that I swear makes my blemishes shrink overnight. This is the type of stuff that excites me so obviously I have to share.
First off I tend to change up products a lot, all depending on what I’m trying to target but there are a few that I always stick too. Nighttime is the best time to use one of my two favorite acid products from The Ordinary. They are so amazing to help clogged pores and I am convinced that it helps shrink acne. So I’ve talked about the two I use but just in case you’ve missed that post I use the Mandelic Acid and the Alpha Lipoic Acid. Both are amazing for being a light exfoliant and helping you achieve a smoother skin texture. I like to use this at night because these products tend to be very strong and don’t mix well with sunlight. A little goes a long way with these and you want to make sure to wait a bit before moving on to your next product.
Then I like to go in with my favorite serums. Sometimes ill use all three and sometimes just one but these are my favorites. I love to use Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin C and Niacinamide and Zinc serums. Hyaluronic acid is a product EVERYONE should use!! It helps your skin maintain hydration which is so important! You need to keep your skin hydrated to avoid blemishes, wrinkles and other aging signs. Vitamin C is also a MUST HAVE for ANYONE to have a brighter and more even skin tone. When I say brighter I mean that it helps you get rid of acne skin and pigmentation. The sooner you start to fight skin pigmentation the better it is to keep it in control. The last serum I use often is the Niacinamide and Zinc to help fight acne. This is a product that is gentle on the skin but effective. All three of these products you can use every day both day and night time.
Right after I will go in with my favorite moisturizer is the St Ives Renewing Collagen and Elastin Moisturizer. I have talked about this one a lot but it’s my absolute favorite. It feels so light but it always keeps my skin so soft and moisturized. I think that this moisturizer is perfect to use at night because it mixes great with other products and oils. Nothing is worse than using products that don’t work well together. Like I mentioned, after my moisturizer, I go in with some oil to give it some extra hydration overnight. I always use either Jasons Vitamin E oil or organic cold-press extra virgin olive oil. Both are amazing so often I will use them together.
This routine never fails me. I always wake up with glowy smoother skin and it helps me avoid breakouts. I love how it’s so easy and there is no need to do anything fancy. Sometimes if I want too, I will use my microneedling tool before but even with that, it takes a second. If you don’t have one already, make a nighttime routine AND STICK TO IT. I promise you will begin to see results and you’ll be just as obsessed as I am.
All the love,
