Updated Night Time Skin Care Routine

Hey Dolls!

In June I posted a skin care routine. It was at the time the best skin care routine I had done. I felt that my skin was clear and visibly soft. Sadly, I experienced some breakouts (I am not sure exactly what caused the breakouts.) and that routine was not helping me get rid of the breakouts. Naturally, I switched up my routine and I now have clear skin (again), visibly soft skin (again), and a more even tone to my skin. With such amazing results I figured it would be a perfect idea to share my skin care routine. In today's post I will be discussing my night time skin care routine. Monday I posted my daytime routine (Go check it out!). So, without further a do let's jump into it!
  • If I was wearing make up I will use CVS night-time makeup remover cleansing cloths to remove my face makeup. To remove my eyeshadow or liner I will use Maybelline Expert Eyes eye makeup remover.
  • Once all my makeup is removed I will use cold water and Alpha Hydrox Foaming Face Wash. I will take one pump and apply it to my skin. I generally will use my hands but once a week or so I will use my Clarisonic Mia instead of my hands.
  • 2-3x a week I will use apricot scrub to for blemishes and blackheads to exfoliate my skin. I am currently using the CVS brand. I have used the Target brand, Walmart brand, and the St.Ives brand. They all work the same.  
  • 2-3x a week I will use Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay Mask to give my skin a deep clean and close my pores. Or I will use papaya soap as a mask. It helps even my skin tone. (With continuous use.) 
  • Once I have finished that I will pat my skin dry and then apply witch hazel to my skin to restore the pH balance.
  • I will then apply a mixture of Lancôme's Advanced Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate and Hyaluronic Acid Serum to my face.
  • Then I will apply a mixture of Lancôme Bienfait Multi-Vita Night cream and Good n Natural Retinol cream to my face.
  • To further even the tone of my skin I will apply Artra skin tone cream to my uneven areas.
  • To help my lashes and eyebrows grow I will apply Godefory Double lash and brow to my eyelashes and eyebrows.
  • To hydrate my under eyes I apply Benefit's It's Potent eye cream.
  • Then I apply Carmex to my lips.
That's all folks!

This routine is similar to my old one I have just changed up some of my products. The routine has worked wonders for me and I am sure you Dolls will love it!
