Night Time

When I hit the ripe age of 20 I started to notice that my skin was changing, predominantly on my face – prior to this I was pretty inconsistent with any face cleansing routine and had the few occasions of sleeping with my makeup on. But, I started to develop some ugly acne and I felt it was about time to start caring for my face. I think I basically tried everything – and nothing was working, especially hard to deal with because I didn’t even know the cause of it. Recently, I found out that it was a hormonal issue and a secret for you (Omega-3 vitamins balances hormones and will remove any hormonal acne).

night time routineOver these past few months I have finally found a couple products that have been working for me!

makeup remover1. First I make sure to take off ALL my makeup with this camomile makeup remover,  it is literally the perfect way to get rid of it all – and is great for my sensitive skin

cleansing2. I made a huge investment and bought a Clarisonic Mia 2, and mixed with my Philosophy Purity cleanser my skin has been making a huge turn around – although it is a slow process, it has really been making a change for the better.

toner3. After I cleanse, I always make sure to tone. It helps restore my skin’s pH levels and gets rid of any leftover dirt that might not have been removed from cleansing. I use the Body Shop’s aloe toner, because after using my Clarisonic, it really helps to soothe my skin.

treatment4. Next, I apply the Body Shop’s tea tree night blemish fade lotion. There is still some acne that hasn’t completely gone away – but it’s a work in progress. I find that this really helps!

moisture5. To bring back some moisture to my face I apply Josie Maran’s light argan oil, it’s the perfect way to bring some radiance back to my face and doesn’t leave my face oily or greasy in any way.

Then I apply my Origins Plantscription Anti-Aging eye cream, which has been a preventative measure for me, trying to get ahead in the game. Last but not least I apply my moisturizer, the Aveeno Clear Complexion Daily Moisturizer is one of the best moisturizers I’ve found in a long while. It’s non oily, and helps with acne. After this bottle finishes, I’m thinking of switching to something less abrasive – acne scars are a new problem that I need to deal with!

treatment x2*I have a tube of Proactiv  Advanced Blemish Treatment, which I was using consistently with my acne, but lately I use it more as a spot treatment and it works wonders!

**I will be posting a video next week on how exactly I apply all the products for my pm regime, so stay tuned!
