PM Skincare Routine

My skincare routine in the evening is more fancy than the one in the morning and i am doing it everyday (guilty, there are some days i don't). I have more time in the evening and the products can work overnight.

#1 Double Cleansing
Double Cleansing seems to be something everybody in the beauty world swears by and practices at the moment. There a reasons, because it does make a difference. First you cleanse your face to remove makeup and second you cleanse the actual skin of your face. For the makeup removing part i use mostly cleansing oils like the Super Facialist Vitamin C+ Brighten Oil or the Body Shop Camomile Cleansing oil (yep, again). For the second step i prefer a cleansing balm like the Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm or when it has to be quick i use the Loreal Sublime Soft Micellar Solution on a big cottonpad and sweep it all over my face. Cleansing done. A more detailed review about my cleansers here.

#2 Exfoliater
How often and intense you exfoliates depends on your skin, if it needs it and how sensitive it is. I use the Body Shop Aloe Gentle Exfoliater (very nice for sensitive skin) about every second or third day only on areas where i have pimpels or blackheads (mostly the nose). Plus once or twice a week all over my face to get rid of the dead skin cells.

#3 Facial Oil
At the moment i am using the Body Shop Vitamin E Overnight Serum-in-Oil. Five to seven drops of it applied all over the face. Facial Oils and Serums are a great way to target a specific problem you have with your skin: dehydration, redness, blemishes, there is something for everything.

#4 Moisturiser
Hydration is key so be sure to pick the right moisturiser for you. I love the Clinique Moisture Surge at the moment. A very nice gel like texture, sinks quickly into the skin and leaves my skin feel soft, smooth and really hydrated.

If i think i need it, i use an eyecream over the face moisturiser. Currently i am using the First Aid Beauty Dual Repair Eyecream.

#5 Pimpel treatment
For any pimpels i use (as you maybe already read here) the Dr. Eckstein Azulenpaste. It looks and smells strange, but it does the job, so i can look over that.
