Nighttime Skincare Routine

Nighttime Skincare Routine
I try a TON of different skincare products so my routine is constantly changing. I haven't done a nighttime skincare routine in quite some time so today's the day! I actually prefer nighttime skincare more than morning. I'm not sure why but I think it's because I think it seems more effective to me than my morning routine. I also LOVE a heavy moisturizing cream and that's usually reserved to nighttime. 

Biologique Recherche p50 1970// I've been using this product for a little over a year and it's one of my holy grail skincare products. You can read my full review about it, here. Basically, I use this as a toner and it's STRONG. It's one of the best skincare products I have ever used for minimizing pores. 

Shiseido Eye Cream// I'm not married to any eye cream. I do have a few I like but to me, eye cream just always seems 'extra'. Like, you could easily use your face cream in place of actual eye cream. However, at night I like SUPER thick creams and this one is extremely thick and feels so good on my under eyes. I really try to make sure the area around my eyes is super hydrated at all times. 

Dermalogica Bright Spot Fader// This is one I've had for a while. It's a spot treatment that targets age spots, skin discoloration,  acne scars, etc. It is pretty powerful and I notice spots fade within about two weeks. It's a gel-like substance and I use it before I moisturize. I notice it is better at fading dark spots rather than acne scarring. 

Kaplan MD Night Cream// This is a newer product to me and I LOVE it. The night cream feels really thick on my fingers but once I apply it to my face, it feels so lightweight. I wake up each morning and my face is very hydrated. I am really picky about face moisturizers and this one passes with flying colors. I also love that it has a metal ball scooper type thing so you don't have to put your fingers into the jar! 

Olay Regenerist// This is a go-to of mine and something I always have on hand. It's affordable and super-rich and creamy. This particular moisturizer is packed with vitamin B3 which is known to greatly improve the quality of the skin. 

MB Drying Lotion// This is a product that I keep backstock of. It is a spot-treatment and works miracles on zits. I just dip a q-tip into the jar, put it on the zit area, and when I wake up in the morning the zit is, at the very least, greatly reduced if not completely gone. It shows up as pink on your face so this is definitely a nighttime thing right before you go to bed. 

Dennis Gross Peel Pads// This is a product with a cult-like following and for good reason. The pads are 2-steps and very easy to apply. You just wipe on step one, let it dry, and then wipe on step two. I personally prefer the extra strength ones as I feel those are the most effective. They are pricey but well worth it in my opinion. If I know I have a big event or something coming up, I use these 1-3x per week for about a month or two. You can use them perpetually, but they're pretty expensive, so in between, I usee these Glycolic Acid Pads. The peel pads minimize pores, acne scarring, discoloration, etc. I was using them leading up to my wedding and plan to use them again once we are leading up to our wedding again. This is one of the strongest over the counter products, in my opinion, so if you have sensitive skin, you might not want to go with the extra strength ones. You can start using them once a week and then build up to a few times a week once your skin can tolerate it. 

Neck Serum// This is a product that is definitely not a necessity, as again, it's a little like the eye cream- you could just use your moisturizer for your neck. But this is such a luxury. It has a rose quartz roller that actually dispenses the product onto the roller and then you roll it onto your neck. It's somewhat chilled feeling and so refreshing. The serum is really hydrating. Since the application is so convenient, I keep this in my bedside drawer and just roll it on my neck once I'm in bed. I'd like to think it's working, although, I haven't seen any crazy results. I look down at my phone and computer way too much so I like using this even if only for prevention. 

Glycolic Acid Pads// These are SO good. They are inexpensive for what they are and they can be shipped quickly via Prime. They are very similar to any other peel pads/glycolic acid pads I have used before. I love that they are really soaked with the acid and they work so well. These are similar to the Dennis Gross Peel Pads and you can pick your strength, too. I use 20% which is the highest, but they have lower percentages if you have sensitive skin. I use these every night and not only do I think that they work on preventing/reducing fine lines, and minimizing pores, etc. but I think that they also keep acne at bay. 

NeuBrow Serum// This is something I've been using for years. I usually buy it in the Nordstrom Anniversary sale because you can get 2 for $100, so it's like getting it for half off as usually, one tube is $100. This is a brow serum that you apply nightly or a few times a week and it makes your eyebrows grow/look fuller/etc. After two weeks the results are incredibly noticeable. I have thinner eyebrows than I would like and this serum really helps to fill in the sparse areas. 

Tula Acne Spot Treatment// This is what I have been using as a spot treatment for zits. It's basically salicylic acid, so it's just easy to put on a zit at night without any irritation. I will typically use this when the zit is starting to form and then use the MB Drying Lotion when the zit is farther along. Use code SYDNEY for 15% off.
