“Beauty is in the skin! Take care of it, oil it, clean it, scrub it, perfume it, and put on your best clothes, even if there is no special occasion, and you’ll feel like a queen. If society is hard on you, fight back by pampering your skin…”
― Fatema Mernissi
I’m not a makeup junkie but I do like to pamper my self at night when my kids are asleep and I have some time to myself. Every Mommy needs these rare moments everyday a little bit and that’s why we should put it to serious positive use for ourselves and it’s kind of a reward for my all day efforts that I put in taking care of my babies so it feels really good . I’m going to share here the important skin care steps that I love to follow and that have worked for me and I would recommend you should also follow these steps for a healthy skin in the long run . With these simple steps you will provide your skin all the important ingredients that will help you wake up with glowing skin if the routine is followed persistently because you know guys patience is a very important factor for achieving success so develop a routine and then follow is regularly you will definitely see positive changes you just have to make it a habit.
Remove any type of makeup
I use Garnier micellar water . Just soak a cotton in it and swipe all over you face and eyes to remove any makeup its really good for all types of skins.The most important step before sleeping should always start with removing any type of makeup from your skin it should never be skipped no matter how tired you are .
The second step is my favorite . I put a little oil on my palm rub both hands to warm it and apply it on my face to give myself a mini massage. Just circling my fingers around the eyes and temples and then massaging the cheek bones doing all the movements in upward direction. It really relaxes me give my skin a circulation boost leaving it pretty radiant .i love to use virgin coconut oil for this purpose and i also alternately use Argan oil because of its heavenly properties for skin . Face massages have several benefits and really good for healthy and glowing skin I will soon post my favorite massage techniques in the blog.
Use a good Essence
After washing off the oil with a mild face wash or soap my favorite is the charcoal soap by Aura . I like to lightly tap my face while applying an essence . Essence is actually a skin product packed with all the good ingredients In a saturated form so it’s really nice to apply at night and leave it in so that your skin can absorb all the goodness during your sleep . You can choose your own essence according to your skin type but I love the new Huxley range from Korea, I’m currently using Huxley Oil Essence it contains antioxidant-rich ingredients such as Sahara Cactus Oil it is made of 61% Sahara Cactus Seed Oil, an oil high in Vitamin E and antioxidants.Antioxidants are very important to fight the harmful radicals int environment that can case damage to our skin.
Cactus oil is known for its ability to quickly absorb into skin while giving lasting hydration and protecting the skin from stress and aging. Its has light liquid consistency that absorbs well in the skin .The smell is so calming and i love everything about the luxurious packaging. It’s a very wise investment for your skin and a must step in every night skin care routine.
Use a night cream
After this you can layer the essence with a night cream of your choice but it should be containing Retinol so that you can gain the anti aging effects as well . Nowadays due to all this pollution and radiations in our atmosphere anti-aging regime should start around 25 years.
If you are new to anti aging night cream use then i suggest use Neutrogena Healthy Skin Anti-Wrinkle Night Cream it contains mild amount of retinol and once your skin get used to it you can switch to a much concentrated formula.But its a serious must have in your skin routine if you are interested in anti aging skin care.
And if you want to use a retinol free night cream that is more towards organic and natural than i love Mana’s angel glow night cream its has very soft and buttery consistency .It can make your skin feel instantly a little tight and after that the feeling will go away . Its a very organic brand and uses very natural and effective ingredients . And you will definitely feel a difference in the morning with a subtle glow on your face .
Well this was the overview of my night routine hope you enjoyed it and if you have any queries feel free to contact .
