As Promised…here is my entire evening skincare routine! Most everything linked are all products you can find in my morning skincare routine (BLOG | IGTV) with the exception of an added cleanser, an additional face serum, and an evening night cream. When it comes to skincare it’s a bit of mix and match. Listen to your skin, adjust to what you need, but majority of the time this is the exact routine I do nightly with alternations noted! x
I actually don’t cleanse my face in the mornings unless I’ve just done a sweaty workout. I like to wake up and keep the natural oil my face produces so will go straight into my morning routine. Evenings are obviously different. After the day’s build up + London’s pollution I always cleanse my face with a moisturizing face cleanser. Dr. Roebucks ( a natural brand I mention A LOT) is my favorite. It’s super super hydrating while effective at removing makeup. For evenings when I’m wearing heavier makeup, I’ll start my routine by wiping my entire face and make with a Simple Skincare wipe, to have a fresher starting base. Then proceed with cleanser.
2. EYE MAKE UP REMOVER
My ultimate splurge evening item is Chanel’s Eye Makeup Remover. I have extremely sensitive eyes. They’re allergic to just about everything, including contact solution, so this is the one that I’ve found and used for over 6+ years that doesn’t burn. It isn’t at all oily and completely removes all eye make up on a cotton pad.
Alternatively, Simple’s Eye Make up remover is almost just as good for a fraction of the cost. It feels like water, doesn’t burn, and does a great job at removing makeup
3. * GLO PRO (OPTIONAL)
I LOVE this little secret skin weapon. If you’re unfamiliar, the GloPro is basically at at-home version of micro-needling. The roller has little tiny tiny pain-free spikes that gently, invisibly puncture your skin to allow products to penetrate on a deeper level and almost “trick” your skin into thinking it needs to heal itself. Ie. Producing more collagen and naturally plumping. I’ll use this 1-3 times weekly, again depending on my skins needs. Always after cleansing fully, before layering on any products
4. MINI FACIAL FACE MASK (1-3x weekly)
1-3 times a week I’ll use GOOPs instant facial mask for about 5 minutes in the evening. It’s extremely effective at resurfacing the skin leaving a slight tingle. Alternatively I have and use Drunk Elephant’s Babyfacial mask. It’s a little bit stronger but a great option for similar function as well.
5. FACE OIL
Depending on the dryness of my skin, I’ll then add a few drops of face oil rubbed between my finger tips then lathered onto my face. You can absolutely use your same face oil from your morning routine. My top choice is Goop’s Nourishing Oil or I’m also using Kora’s natural face oil at the moment.
6. Vitamin C Serum (Regular OR Self Tanning)
If you suffer with pigmentation, melasma, dark spots, or uneven skin tone, be sure to add a Vitamin C serum to your regime. I alternate between Summer Friday’s CC Me Serum which I use in the mornings and St. Tropez Vitamin C & D Self Tanning Serum. Both are super light and smell quite summery.
For the Self Tanning Serum you only need 2 small pumps. It goes on completely clear and is super gradual so you don’t have to worry about “Oompa Loompa” face. I love this because I never tan my face in the summer and it adds just a little bit of pigment to your complexion for a natural glow
7. Hyaluronic SERUM
For serum step two I layer on a Hydrating Hyaluronic Acid. If you’ve followed my morning skincare routine, you can definitely save $ and stick your your Dr. Roebucks Collagen Boosting Serum for this step. It has Hyaluronic Acid in it, so there’s no need to have to splurge on a whole new serum. That said, when I want to specifically target hydration and use the evenings to really boost up the perkiness of my skin, I’ll use a strictly Hyaluronic Acid Serum. I’ve used both Dr. Sebagh’s Serum and Dr. Barbara Sturm’s Hyaluronic Acid Serums. These are a bit stickier than a combination serum which is why I stick to a pure Hyaluronic serum solely in the evenings.
8. EYE CREAM
You can get a little more generous with your evening eye cream, however I still use my same La Mer Eye Concentrate both morning and night. If you want something a bit thicker to really target premature fine lines, crows feet, or eye lines, I’d recommend Dr. Roebucks Collagen Eye cream. I absolutely love this product and when I run our of my gifted La Mer, I always buy this one for myself.
9. NIGHT CREAM
Again, the Dr. Roebucks face cream that I use in my morning routine is that good there’s no reason you can’t use this in your evening routine. However if you’re looking for a specific Night Face Cream, I couldn’t recommend Goop’s Night Cream Enough. I’ve used it for over 7 months now and love the texture, love the smell. If you use it you’ll definitely notice it’s a bit thicker and heavier than a light whipped daytime cream — a common theme with most evening products. They’re just a bit heavier to really work into the layers of the skin through the span of the night.
10. LIP SCRUB
If you’re having issues with chapped lips or dry skin, I highly recommend Herbivore’s natural lip scrub. It’s super super hydrating and does an amazing job of nourishing lips and removing dry skin. This can be used mornings or evening, but I like this as a treatment before bed.
