Skin Care Saturday

Happy Saturday, everyone! I hope everyone is enjoying a peaceful, easy weekend. Since this is my first Skin Care Saturday post, I thought I would talk about my nighttime skin care routine, in addition to talking about tonight’s mask. When I saw my dermatologist the other week, we talked a lot about how I care for my skin. He said I was being aggressive, but in a good way. At my age, aggressive is a must hahahaha

I kick off my routine by washing my face. I don’t recall how I discovered this cleanser, but it has been nearly miraculous for me. The first time I used it, it took out most of my rosacea redness immediately. I stood in the bathroom, staring into the mirror, stunned at how good my skin looked. It is a staple now. My holy grail cleanser is Philosophy Purity Made Simple One-Step Facial Cleanser, 16 Ounces. I am aware that this is a pretty spendy cleanser, but I have searched high and low for something that works and makes my skin look awesome, in general, and this is it. I am learning that sometimes, you do indeed get what you pay for. I also use this exact Konjac Sponge Set: Organic Skincare Facial for Natural Exfoliating and Deep Pore Cleansing 5 Piece Sampler Pack Infused with Charcoal, Red Clay, Tumeric, Green Tea and I love them! They are super soft and do a much better job than fingers alone. My skin is too sensitive to use a washcloth, so this is a great compromise. Each sponge lasts a month or two and I just can’t say enough about them. Then comes the mask!! Tonight, I used TonyMoly’s I’m Real Avocado Sheet Mask, for nutrition. This is a 20-30 minute commitment so get a glass of wine, close your bedroom door, and just relax.

After removing the mask and patting all of the serum in, I spritz my face with Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber De-Tox Balancing Essence Water Mist. This stuff is AWESOME, but a lot comes out when you spray, so be prepared haha I wasn’t. I’ll let you picture the hilarity of that for yourselves hehe After that dries, I use a little bit of e.l.f. Hydrating Water Essence on a cotton pad and wipe my face. I let that dry, and then I go in with L’Oreal Paris RevitaLift Anti Wrinkle + Firming Eye Cream. This can even safely go on the eyelids! Finally, I finish up with Garneir SkinActive Ultra-Lift Anti-Wrinkle Firming Night Cream, 1.7 0z. (The product name is spelled incorrectly in this link. Sorry Garnier!) It looks like the packaging has changed since I bought mine, but this stuff is delightful! It kinda smells like vanilla cupcakes to me. I might be crazy haha, but I think it smells wonderful. I put this all over my face, and down my neck.

So that’s it! Written out, it sounds like a lot, but it really isn’t. Without the mask, it might take five minutes to do my nighttime routine. What’s your nighttime routine? What skin care products can you not live without?
