Evening Skin Care Routine
Hey Hey lovelies, Welcome back.
So seeing as last weeks post was about my Morning Skin Care Routine, it only seems right to follow it up with my evening skin care routine. Yes it's mostly the same but I use a few different products.
My favourite thing about my evening routine is getting to take my makeup off at the end of the day. I have days where I just really cant be bothered to take it off and I'll let you in on a little secret... on those days I don't. I crawl into bed and under my duvet without batting an eye lid, because I'm tired and the satisfaction of being in bed is way more than the satisfaction I would get if I took my makeup off.. I know some people will be reading this and judging me into the next century.. but hey ho!! I'll just wake up in the morning and give my skin a little extra scrub and TLC.
I have tried so many different things to remove my makeup... baby wipes, makeup removing wipes and various micellar waters, only to discover my now holly grail product. Elemis Nourishing Omega Rich Cleansing Oil. Yes another Elemis product...but when you find skin that works for you, you just have to go with it. This Oil is the best thing I have used on my skin, my makeup will literally melt off my face with so little effort it's unreal even makes easy work of stubborn mascara. I massage 2-3 pumps all over my face and down my neck and remove with a warm damp face cloth.
My next step involves a new favourite of mine the Pixi Glow Tonic, I use this morning and night, but at night I find it works well to remove any of the day that's left in my skin. Because of the glycolic acid its great for removing dead skin cells and really making me feel revitalized. I drop a few drops onto a cotton pad and swipe all over my face and down my neck. I find it's really important for me to remember to go down my neck with my skin care as I feel i'm prone to getting a few random spots on my neck and under my jaw line so I feel doing this keeps them at bay.
My third step to my skin evening skin care is my Pixi Skintreats Rose oil Blend, I really can not recommend this stuff enough, my skin, holy crap my skin is so soft. I can really feel this getting down to the deeper layers of my skin. My skin looks so much more glowy since using this. I mean I could also be due to the fact i've actually been looking after my skin lately, but I really do believe I owe the dewyness of my skin to this product. I take 4-5 drops of this all over my face and massage it in, and I like to take my time with this step as it leaves my feeling all relaxed.
After this step I don't do much else, I chill on sofa for a little while and watch netflix. Drink wine and probably eat something.. I feel like leaving the oil to soak into my skin before applying anything else to my skin really allows it to work properly. But my final step I do is right before I get into bed and that is applying my Elemis Pro- Collagen Oxygenating Night Cream. If I didn't do anything else with my face other than remove my makeup I would do this step without fail, my skin thanks me every morning it really does make me look like I've had a good nights sleep every night. It's so hydrating and nourishing.
