Yesterday, I blogged about my morning skincare so why the heck wouldn't I blog about my evening skincare as well. Evening skincare is where I go all out and give my dry skin a good old pamper in order to keep it at bay for the next day. Dry skin is a daily battle for me and I pop in items like oils and masks which quench my skin's insatiable thirst.
A lot of my routine is the pimped up version of my morning routine but with few bits; including make up removal, a facial oil and an intensive mask. I use Clarins Instant Eye Make Up Remover and Bioderma Sensibio Micellar Water to remove the bulk of my make up first; a first cleanse and move to my trusty Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish to do my second cleanse and have skin squeaky clean for the next step. Lush Eau Roma Water Toner Water is a lovely toner and I can't get enough of it. You can read about the majority of this routine in yesterday's post so I'll just talk about the added extras. Origins Plantscription Youth-Renewing Face Oil is a lovely lightweight oil that sinks in beautifully without feeling sticky and every dry patch instantly melts away. I also seem to be using Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask more often than not at the minute. I think a very light layer most nights is what is helping me the most with my dry skin and keeping my skin looking at its best.
I've obviously got a couple of bits of skincare that are only for a couple of nights a week and these come in the form of Liz Earle Gentle Face Exfoliator and Clarins Gentle Exfoliator Brightening Toner. These two are used sparingly but really do their job to a tee. The Liz Earle Gentle Face Exfoliator is full of cocoa butter and fine jojoba beads that gently rub away anything you don't want around but making sure your skin is nourished at the same time. Clarins Gentle Exfoliator Brightening Toner is a toner I use a couple of times a week just to brighten everything up. It does make my face ever so slightly dry but nothing that can't be fixed with my Origins mask.
What is your evening skincare like?
