Today I am sharing my summer nighttime skin routine as part of the Summer Beauty Series. As with most of us, our skin has different needs during summer vs. winter. A little about my skin type: I have dry skin with some hyperpigmentation along the tops of my cheekbones. I also have fine lines around my eyes and some wrinkles on my forehead. My skin is not that sensitive however I do like to stay away from heavy perfumed products if I can. Ok now let’s get started.
My Evening Essentials
It Bye Bye 3 in 1 Makeup Melting Cleansing Balm
Sephora Coconut water cleansing cloths
L’Oréal Revitalift Brightening Peel Pads
Murad Hydrating Toner
Murad Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum
Yes to Lip Oil in Primrose
Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate
Lancôme Renergie Lift Multi- Action Eye
Lancôme Renergie Lift Multi- Action Lifting and Firming Cream
Cleanse: I start with It Bye Bye 3 in 1 Makeup Melting Cleansing Balm. I have been using this for a couple months now. I am a big fan of It Cosmetics and when I saw they had a cleansing balm, I knew I had to try it. The first time I used it I fell in love, so in love I ordered a backup immediately! I absolutely love it. It melts into the skin to remove all makeup even eye makeup. It does not sting the eyes or leaving my skin dry. I will have a future blog post comparing other cleansing balms.
Tone: A hydrating toner is necessary for my dry skin. This toner from Murad works great. I love the fact it has a mist spray. I spray two pumps, one on my face and one on my neck and chest.
I alternate every other day with using the hydrating toner and the Loreal Revitalift Brightening Peel pads. These pads helps exfoliate dead skin cells for and have 10% Glycolic Acid. They help leave my skin feeling fresh and clean.
Lips: After I cleanse and tone my skin, I apply a lip oil to hydrate my lips. I really liked the Milani lip oil treatment but ran out recently. I found a new product, the Yes to lip oil in my recent trip to Walmart. I leave this on until I am done with my makeup routine or ready to put on lipstick for the day. It hydrates my lips and I love it. It is about half the cost of the Milani lip oil and I prefer this one over the Milani lip oil.
Serum: After toner, I use a half to a full pump of Murad Rapid Age Spot and Pigment Lightening Serum all over my face. This lightweight serum soaks into the skin and helps with my hyperpigmentation.
Moisturize: I have been using the Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate oil. I use two-three drops (put in palm of my hand) and pat this all over face, neck and chest area. I wait for that to soak for a few minutes before the final step.
I really enjoy this product! It is very lightweight, protects my skin and leaves it feeling hydrated without a greasy feeling.
Extra Hydration: My final step is to apply my eye cream and sunscreen. I use Lancôme Renergie Lift Multi- Action Eye
Lancôme Renergie Lift Multi- Action Lifting and Firming Cream. Both of these are sample sizes I received in a gift with purchase when I purchased my Lancôme cushion foundation. I love Lancôme and both of these products are great. They are thick and moisturizing, perfect for overnight.
Thanks for stopping by the blog today. I would love to hear what your favorite summer nighttime products are.
