My Easy Nighttime Skincare Routine

I love the phrase that the best makeup is skincare. It's so true! How many make up products do we use to cover up skin issues? Dark circles under our eyes, acne, the list goes on! Lately I've been really focusing on dialing in my skincare. I'm approaching the last year of my twenties, and I know that taking care of my skin will only become increasingly important.

A few years ago I tried First Aid Beauty, and instantly fell in love! Unlike other skincare brands, I literally love every single one of their products that I've used. It's now to the point that I feel comfortable ordering their products without a sample, because I already know it's going to be amazing!

So today I thought I'd share with you some of my favorite First Aid Beauty products that I use in my daily skincare routine. 

Every night before bed, I wash my face with the Pure Skin Face Cleanser. Our faces pick up so much dirt during the day; it's so important to wash it all off and go to bed with a fresh start. This cleanser is really creamy and gentle, and cleanses my face without drying it out. Side note: have you ever washed your face, and your skin felt tight afterwards? That tightness isn't a "squeaky clean" feeling like so many people think - that's your skin telling you that it's way too dry! If that happens to you with your current cleanser, try one like this that's nourishing.

My next step is to use this Ultra Repair Cream to hydrate my skin before closing my eyes for the day. I love that it's really moisturizing, but not heavy or oily. It leaves my skin feeling dewy, soft, and amazing when I wake up the next morning.

My last step is to apply my Eye Duty Triple Remedy Overnight Balm. I'm obsessed with this cream! It's so relaxing to apply, and I notice a real difference in my eyes when I wake up the next morning.

A few times a week, I use this Ginger & Turmeric Vitamin C Jelly Mask to give my skin a little extra boost. I really love how light, refreshing and cooling this mask is. It was the first gel mask I've ever tried, and it instantly became my favorite. If I'm using this mask, I apply it after washing my face and follow up with my lotion and eye cream.

All in all, my nighttime skincare routine takes me about five minutes, or 15 minutes if I'm adding the mask that night. For me that's perfect - anything longer and I honestly risk being too lazy and not following through with it.
