Hey y'all! It's been a little while since I've done an updated skincare routine. For the most part, over the last year, I have used the same products every morning and night. I have finally found products that work for me and have helped my skin stay clear, look healthy, and stay hydrated.

I have combination skin, so I have to cater to both oily skin and super dry skin. My nose and t-zone get extremely oily, while around my lips, mouth, and cheeks get extremely dry--especially in the fall/winter months.

Today, I'll briefly touch on some of the skincare I use to cleanse my skin/prep it for my nighttime skincare routine, but I want those products to be the highlight because they have been a huge game-changer for me lately.

When I'm taking off my makeup at night, I use my tried & true Olay Daily Facials. I have written so many blog posts about them, and they honestly are the best makeup remover ever. They melt away your eye makeup and effortlessly remove any makeup--including waterproof mascara and liquid lipsticks. Once my skin is completely clean, I'll use a cleanser. I go back and forth with a few cleaners, but for the last six months or so, I've been using Clarisonic Pore & Blemish Gel Cleanser with my Clarisonic Mia. This dynamic duo has kept my skin clear as ever!

Once my skin is completely clean, it's ready for some lovely skincare products. I don't tone my skin at night, however, every morning I will use Pixi Glow Tonic to gently exfoliate my skin before applying my makeup.

At night, the first thing I do is allow my skin to completely dry after my shower and/or cleansing my face. Once a week, I give my skin a really great exfoliation with my PMD aka Personal Microderm Pro tool. It helps remove dead skin cells, especially where I am dry. It also helps to smooth out my skin and this allows my makeup to go on even smoother.

Next is for all-things serums and oils. I am all for oils, but only at nighttime. The first thing I apply for my skincare concoction is Sunday Riley Good Genes Serum. Good Genes is a lactic acid treatment, which helps to gently exfoliate the skin, brighten, add radiance, and soothe the skin. Its good-for-you ingredients give you noticeable results that you can feel great about.

*If you are pregnant or nursing, I do not recommend this product for you. Lactic acid is not good to use during pregnancy. Please consult your doctor before using!

If you have combination skin like I do, I might have to use two different moisturizers--one for your oily t-zone and another for your dry areas. For me, those two are my lovely Olay Whips for my t-zone and Josie Maran Argan Oil for my dry patches. In combining these two together, I have noticed that my skin is less dry and oily when I wake up.

On my lippies, I will sometimes add a little of the leftover argan oil on my lips, because they get so dry all year long. I will also add a layer of Palmer's Vitamin E Balm. I got this lip balm a few months ago in a box from InfluenceHer Collective, and ever since then, I've been using it non-stop. My liquid lipsticks go on so much smoother now, too!

Last but not least, it's time to take care of your body. I have been loving the Wen Ultra Nourishing Intensive Body Treatment. Not only does it smell amazing, but it also gives the perfect amount of moisture to the skin.

There ya have it! My nighttime skincare routine. If you're interested in reading more posts about other skincare products that I love, check them out here!
