Ever since my skin went crazy a few years back, I’ve been super conscious of my daily, and nightly skincare routines. What I’ve found works best for me is to use a gentle cleanser in the morning (to cleanse my skin from anything overnight), preferably with a smell that is awakening. Then, at night I typically use an exfoliating cleanser with my Clarisonic (or alone) in the shower (after I’ve taken off all my makeup from the day). Lately, I’ve been using the Formula 10.0.6 cleanser in replace of my cult favorites!
I try not to wear heavy foundation if and when I don’t have to. I find myself usually sporting a pretty effortless look to my office Monday-Friday, and wearing a bit more makeup over the weekend, or for special events.
Since we’re on the subject of skincare, I’m so excited to share with ya’ll one of my new favorite skincare lines that’s available at Target and Ulta! Formula 10.0.6 has not only face masks but cleaners too. I try to use a facial mask at least once a week, especially around those times when I find myself wearing a bit more makeup than usual. I tend to gravitate towards charcoal and mud masks because I love how they work to pull impurities out from under the skin.
I like to keep a pretty consistent night time routine (I’m a total homebody)! So, I love to relax at night after work by cooking dinner, showering and changing into comfy clothing. Once I’m all set, I like to wash my face clean of any makeup or dirt and grime from that day (I work in Manhattan, and one habit I’ve picked up from living with Pat is to never get in bed if you haven’t showered the day away).
Next, I choose one of my favorite masks and get to pampering!!! #MaskTheNightAway
Sometimes I even like to do some pampering with a friend! So much fun! What better way to enjoy a relaxing night in (all that’s missing is big ole’ glass of wine! Am I right?!)
