Hola my dear sweet hearts ! Now that Diwali is gone, I am slowly gearing up to my daily routine. 🏃🏻 These days I am getting more and more obsessed by skin care. I think there are phases in my life~one fine day I give more importance to makeup while the other days I am concentrating only on skin care.
Today, being in the latter phase, let me share my night skin care routine with you all. First and foremost, I am a super lazy fellow. Hence my routine is very simple and minimalist. I use only those products which are absolutely essential. The ones which can be ignored, are already ignored! 😜😜 I have bifurcated the entire process in steps. So let’s dive directly into the routine.
Step 1: Removing Makeup
This is the most important step which should never be missed! Never ever. No matter how lazy or tired you might feel. 😓 Most of the time I manage with Maybelline Clean express makeup remover, which I absolutely love, but I do keep Himalaya Cleansing milk and Biotique makeup cleanser (because I need some change!). The biotique cleanser is perfect for removing heavy eye makeup. A little on the greasier side but it contains good ingredients anyway, so can be managed.
Step 2: Face wash
For the first time I have invested (yes, literally invested) in Avéne Cleanance Cleansing gel. And so far, I am loving it to bits 😘. Look at the bottle, I’ve been using it (very very judiciously!) since 1st October and it seems it will go a long way. It is a gentle cleanser but removes the tiniest makeup residue very effectively! There is no dry/itchy feeling post wash and the fragrance is also very mild. It has made my skin super soft and those tiny little zits have disappeared! If you are looking for a cleanser which actually works, I highly suggest you to invest in this product.
A face scrub should also be used but I skip it most of the times. I rarely scrub my face, like twice a month or so. (See, lazy me!)😜
Step 3: Toning & Moisturising
I am about to finish The Biotique Cucumber pore tightening toner. It has a very strong fragrance and I am not so fond of it, but still using just because I’ve purchased it. Usually, toning is followed by rose water spray and a face serum, but I prefer to skip these. 😬 I directly apply my Fab India depigmentation cream as a night cream. Trust me, this cream gives results in the long run. I absolutely love it! 😘
Step 4: Eyes & Lip care
The only thing I do to take care of my eyes is using Vaadi eye cream. This cream is very greasy but is effective too. Once in a while (which is very rare) I apply castor oil on my lashes and eye brow. That’s it!
And last but not the least, a Lip balm follows all kinds of routine (morning, mid-day, night, whatever) for me.
So, what is your skin care routine for night? And which products/steps do you tend to skip like me? 😜Do share in the comments below.
