I am usually in a hurry during my night time routine, and honestly I have no idea why. Our skin is the largest organ in our body and we should treat it with respect. I like to use products that give me the most impact for my time spent. I can be a terribly lazy girl when it comes to my night time routine and take short cuts here and there, but I really try not to skimp out on the details. When I am doing my full P.M. Skincare Routine, which is 95% of the time, these are the things I have been reaching for lately.
First up, I gotta get my face clean. I love products that pull a double duty and the Bliss Fabulous Foaming Face Wash is a 2-in-1 Cleanser and Exfoliator. 2 birds, one stone. It leaves my skin feeling soft and fresh and it smells amazing.
After I cleanse my face I put on moisturizers. I usually do eye creams first and the one that I have been loving lately is the Korres Wild Rose Instant Brightening Eye Treatment. It has an interesting thin/creamy texture. I find that my eyes look less dark when I wake up in the morning too, so the brightening part myst be for real! The Shiseido Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate is really good stuff. It actually helps your skins immune system and really amplifies any other creams that are layered over it. It makes my skin feel like silk!
Lip balms are a must have for me. My lips tend to dry up and become flaky during the colder months and one that I rely on time and time again is the TATCHA Camellia Nourishing Lip Balm. It is a jelly like consistency and it does a great job at sinking into my lips and making them feel healthy and happy.
You should NEVER skip taking care of the rest of your body! I have been using an assortment of products from AmLactin. For my trouble areas (elbows, knees, etc) I use the AmLactin Ultra Hydrating Body Cream. It smooths, repairs, and softens like no other. Clinically proven, patented ULTRAPLEX® triple-action moisturizing formula with rich humectants and creamy emollients gently exfoliates and intensely hydrates for serious relief. My rougher areas feel so smooth with this on! I mix it up at night with my body lotion.
I tend to go back and forth with the AmLactin Moisturizing Body Lotion and the AmLactin Cerapeutic Restoring Body Lotion. Both are fantastic and boast the fact that they have a clinically proven, intensely hydrating, triple action, patented ULTRAPLEX® formula that gently exfoliates but the Cerapeutic Restoring Body Lotion has three essential cermaides that strengthen the skin’s protective moisture barrier for noticeably softer, more resilient skin. It really is a toss up between the two, though I have been reaching for whatever my husband isn’t using. It is easier than using my indecisive girl-mind to pick.
