I’ve said it time and time again – I have sensitive skin, blah blah – yeah, I know, shut it already about the repeats, lol.  But it’s true!  And, because of this crazed sensitive skin, I usually keep my skin care routine simple and stick with the same thing over and over again with a few changes here and there when I find a product I like and want to incorporate in it.  Today I am going to be sharing with you a demo of my nighttime skincare routine that I do each night or a few nights a week and the products that work for me.

My Nighttime Skincare Routine - Video Demo

Check out the video demo embedded below or click here to watch it directly on YouTube.

My night time routine is very simple and includes a handful of products to get the job done.  First, if I am using makeup – I usually will remove it with either my InstaNatural Facial Oil or Simple Micellar Water.  These products are not shown here as I usually use them a small handful of times each week since I don’t use makeup daily.  Once all my makeup is removed, I then cleanse.

Since my skin is sensitive, I use a gentle cleanser that can be used daily.  I will either apply the cleanser directly to my face, cleansing with my hands and circular motions or a few times a week I will use my Foreo Luna as a cleansing tool (review here).  While the Luna is gentle, I cannot use it daily so I opt to using it about two times a week with Cetaphil which is my daily cleanser and one I have been using for years.  I use warm water to remove the remaining cleanser and towel dry my face by patting a clean towel on my face to remove the excess water.  If I am going to be using a masque this evening, I will usually apply that after cleansing and before adding my serums.

Next, I follow up with any skin care serums I’m using at the time.  I am currently using InstaNatural’s Age-Defying Skin Clearing Serum (review here) which includes 20% Vitamin C, 2.5% Retinol, 3.5% Niacinamide and 2% Salicylic Acid.  Due to my sensitivities, I can’t use Retinol or Salicylic Acid in my skin care often, but this particular serum doesn’t seem to bother me and it has been a favorite now for over a year.  I also use InstaNatural’s Hyaluronic Acid Serum with includes Hyaluronic Acid, Green Tea, Vitamin C and Jojoba Oil.  While I didn’t mention it in the video, I also added a new product to my nighttime routine from Paula’s Choice – Skin Recovery Super Antioxidant Concentrate Serum (review here).  Once I have finished applying these serums, I move on to my moisturizer.

Nighttime is when I use oils to moisturize my face.  While I like to use a few on their own – I am currently using a blend of oils I mixed up myself to include Coconut Oil, Jojoba Oil and Argan Oil.  The blend consists of equal parts of Jojoba Oil and Argan Oil and 2 parts of Coconut Oil.  This blend keeps my skin hydrated through the night and moisturized so that I do not wake up with dry skin the next morning.  This is particularly important during the Fall and Winter months when my skin is the most dry.  I find that using an oil blend for nighttime moisturizing is ideal for me because these oils do not clog my pores and since I’m using it at night, it doesn’t leave me with a greasy feeling.

Once I have finished applying my moisturizer and serums, I then turn my Luna back on and use the Anti-Aging side as directed to help push my serums into place and get the best possible benefit from each with the pulsations that the Luna provides.

Each and every person has a different way that they care for their skin. While I love high end products, I try to also find skincare products that are reasonably affordable since I go through them so quickly.  The brands I mentioned in the video and in this post are fairly easy to come by and are priced pretty well considering how great they have worked for my skin.  But, my biggest advice is to use what works for you.  A product or products that work for me, may not necessarily work for you and vice versa.  Sometimes finding the perfect combination of products for your skin means you may have to do a lot of trial and error.

I’ll be back in the next few weeks or sooner to share with you my daytime skin care routine, which is quite different from my evening.  Stay tuned for that.

PRESS SAMPLE

 

If you asked me 5 years ago “Are you happy with where your skin is?” I would probably answer you with a big fat NO!  Five years ago I used foundation and concealer to hide my imperfections and having turned 30 then, my skin was freaking out on me.  I found out later that I had severe Eczema and that after having my twins, my skin needed a little more finesse.  It’s funny when I think back at everything I had been doing to my poor face then.  I had just had my twins and my face really did have it’s fair share of break outs.  After changing up my skin care routine, adding and removing certain products from my skin care regimen and knowing what works and what doesn’t, my skin has come a VERY long way.  Recently I have added the Foreo Luna to my cleansing arsenal.  I have tried many different cleansing brushes in the past, (some were fails, some worked well, some were too harsh), I had hoped the Luna would be a product I would love and let me tell you, it is!

Foreo Luna

Cleansing my skin has always been an important part of who I am and my entire skin routine, but I didn’t realize that harsh products both for cleansing, treating and even tools were causing my skin to have my Eczema flare ups.  Having added the Foreo Luna to my cleansing regimen, I have found that it will now be a product I can’t live without.  I have been using this product consistently for several weeks and have found that even with my severely sensitive skin – I’ve been able to get great results from this tool.  Like any other cleansing tool, I’m unable to use it daily for I will get a reaction, but I find that I can use it every other day unlike some of my favorite cleansing brushes like the Soniclear, which I am only able to use once a week.

The LUNA is a cleansing and anti-aging device with a breakthrough approach to skin care.  It’s T-Sonic pulsations are sent through the ultra-soft and smooth silicone touch points to deeply clean, but gently remove dirt, oil and makeup residue.  After one use I immediately noticed my skin looked radiant and brighter and my skin looked healthier.  After one use, I fell in love with this product instantly.  The unit I have is specifically designed for Sensitive / Normal skin however, there are options available for Combination skin and Ultra Sensitive skin types too.

Foreo Luna

The Luna has soft “rounded” silicone touch points which mean there are no abrasive surfaces on the unit resulting in a gentler clean then sharp oscillating brushes that you get from your standard facial cleansing devices.  The ultra-hygienic silicone design is nonporous to resist bacteria buildup making it up to 35x more hygienic than bristled brushes and since the Luna’s silicone brushes are so durable, they don’t require replacing.  While the Luna is definitely an investment in your skin, it will also save you money in the long run in having to purchase replacement heads as you would for the traditional facial-cleansing brushes.

I use my Foreo Luna for just two minutes at night when cleansing – every other day (since my skin is too sensitive to use daily).  Since I have sensitive skin, I also use my very gentle Cetaphil cleanser as it cleanses gently with the unit and makes my cleaning experience feel like I’m getting a facial.  Using the product is so simple – simply apply your cleanser, wet your Luna and then turn it on and use it on your face.  After I cleansed (1 minute), I then use the back side of the unit (the Anti-Aging mode) and apply to the wrinkle-prone areas that I would normally treat with wrinkle creams.  In just a matter of a few days I noticed a dramatic change in how bright and radiant my skin looked.

Foreo Luna

Besides the awesome gentle cleansing I get from this unit, I love how easy it is to not only use but charge.  This cool little device is charged once and will last up to 450 uses for each full charge.  The Luna is waterproof, which means I can use it in the shower and not worry about a thing and like I mentioned previously you don’t have to change out a brush head like you would other products.  While I do enjoy my Soniclear – that is one thing I didn’t like and the Luna is much gentler on my skin than any brush I have used on my face.  You have several different levels of power on the device so you can adjust the settings to fit your sensitivities and the unit has a built in light in the base that will illuminate to let you know when to move around on your face to get the best possible clean in the time allotted.  This is perfect for those on the go or moms like me who are busy and have their hands full with mommy stuff.  Just two minutes a day (two minutes every other day for me) and you have a great cleanse and an anti-aging regimen all in one.

I have spent hundreds of dollars on skin care products and tools over the years and I’m glad to have the Foreo Luna in my life.  It has definitely made waves of positive changes for me and my skin.  If you are interested in checking out this product – click here and see if it is right for you.  Also you can head on over to foreo.com for more details.
