As I’m reaching my late twenties, my night time beauty routine has become increasingly important. Gone are the college days of falling asleep in a full face of makeup. In fact no matter how tired I am, I always wash my face before bed. I’ve gotten a few requests for my a.m. and p.m. beauty routines so I decided to share. What I do is very basic but it works for my skin and I stick by it. I promise to share my a.m. beauty/ makeup routine soon!
- Remove all make up from eyes and lips. I use this on a cotton swab to get everything off.
- Wash face with warm water and a gentle cleanser. I use this which can be found at any drug store, Target, etc.
- Apply an anti-agin cream taking special care around the eyes. I use this one after it was recommended to me by a friend and I am hooked! My face feels so soft.
- Apply a basic moisturizer to face and neck. I use the Aveeno one in the winter and this one in the summer because it is a little lighter.
I’m not counting this in the four steps but I also use Latisse at night on my eye lashes. I wanted to use it in the year leading up to my wedding to help them grow and it’s really working! I love it. I have a prescription for it from my dermatologist, but I’ve also heard great things about neulash which is available without a prescription.
Finally, remember to get plenty of sleep! I hope this is helpful. It’s a new year, and never too soon to take good care of your skin! Have a great weekend. xo
