Today in this post I will share my complete night routine, that will help you in keeping your skin healthy and vibrant
The order in which you use your nighttime products is key to making sure they work properly, so make sure you read this post till end
Start with Step#1 – Remove Makeup From Your Face
Removing make up, before going to bed is very important. Sometimes cleansers are just not enough, especially if you wear eyeliners, mascara and concealers.
To remove make up you can use micellar water, just take few drops of this on a clean cotton pad and rub it lightly on face to remove your make up
Step#2 of this routine is, cleansing
In night time I prefer to wash my face 2 times with a gentle cleanser
Use gentle foam cleanser for oily skin and milk based cleanser for dry skin
Make sure water is lukewarm to wash your face. Clean your face and neck properly, pat dry your face and your step#2 is done
Step#3 – Exfoliation
For this purpose I prefer to use 10% alpha hydroxy acid serum.
You can use either 10% glycolic acid or lactic acid serum.
Take few drops of this serum and apply it all over your face and neck
If your serum has higher percentage of A-H-A, you can use this 2-3 times a week
Now once your face is clean, dead skin cells have been removed you can proceed with your night treatment
Step#4 – Skin Discolouration Treatment
For this first I will use Tranexamic acid serum 5%
Take few drops of this serum and dab it on affected area, where you have pigmentation
After this, you can also use 2% Hydroquinone serum.
These 2 are very effective to treat melasma and uneven skin tone. You can use tranexamic everyday,
but use hydroquinone just for 30 days, after that discontinue for 45 days, and you can start to use it again for 1 month
Step#5 – Anti-aging Treatment
For this I will use retinoid cream 0.05%
Before applying this cream, make sure you protect your under-eye area, as they are very sensitive.
Apply your eye cream in under eye area. If you do not have any eye cream, you can apply some vaseline around your eyes
Now take a pea size amount of retinoid cream and apply it all over your face and neck
Spread it evenly and you’re done
Your face routine is done here. At last apply some ghee on your lips, and you’re good to go for bed
