Hey guys! It’s Aspen, and today I am back to share with you all my night-time skincare routine!
For a bit of a background, I have had combination skin my whole life, meaning that my T-zone has always been the oiliest and the other patches have always been dry. The problem with having combination skin is that you can’t use oil-based products or too heavy of a moisturizer because they will clog pores and cause more problematic acne. On the other hand, because of the dry patches on my face, I do need something moisturizing to keep it looking healthy.
With that said, here is my night-time skincare routine!
1. Clean & Clear Moisturizing Burst Hydrating Facial Cleanser, $5.49 for 8 oz. (Target)
This cleanser removes all makeup, including waterproof eye makeup without making your eyes feel as though they are on fire. It also thoroughly cleanses the skin while leaving a light moisturizing effect as well.
2. up & up Apricot Blemish Scrub, $2.69 for 6 oz. (Target)
To get rid of dead skin on my face, I will use a scrub that is designed to target acne, one containing salicylic acid and no oils. I wouldn’t recommend using this scrub more than two to three times a week because it will rub your skin raw.
3. Olay Oil Minimizing Toner, $3.99 for 7.2 oz. (Target)
After using an abrasive scrub, it is important to make sure that all of the granules have been removed, to reduce the chances of skin damage. I use this toner with a cotton round to remove excess oil and dirt, after I’ve washed up.
4. First Aid Beauty Daily Face Cream, $20 for 2 oz. (Sephora)
Everyone needs to moisturize after washing up, whether your skin fairs oily or dry. I also find that using a moisturizer is one of the most important steps in a skincare routine because it reduces the need for your pores to produce oils, in turn reducing acne. The light scent and formula of this product makes it well-worth the cost.
5. Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask, $17 for oz ($24 for 3.4 oz) (Sephora)
This product utilizes charcoal to draw impurities out of your skin, in turn clearing out bacteria & oils, producing healthier and glowing skin. This product is to only be used a few times a week, and promises to clear your skin of blackheads and other blemishes.
1. Sephora Face Complexion Brush, $7 (Sephora)
To make the most out of your cleansers and scrubs, massage the product into your skin with a brush to fully exfoliate and leave your skin feeling extra clean! This brush helps to slosh off dead & dry skin, leaving behind a fresh appearance:)
