If you follow me on Snapchat or pay attention to my probably obnoxious Instagram story then you’d know that there’s nothing I love more than some great skincare! Since my spinster weeknights are free as can be I fill up the time before bed with an intense yet easy breezy facial routine.

I first start by washing my face with the Skin Owl Charcoal Beauty Bar. If you have sensitive skin this is perfect because it’s gentle but doesn’t sacrifice power to wash away dirt. If you’re like me and tend to breakout with stress or suffer from oily skin this bar will also be of big help! The charcoal acts as a neutralizer for the natural oils produced by your skin to bring your face in balance.

Two to three times a week I like to don a face mask for 30 minutes after I’ve cleansed my face. When it’s a face mask type of night I alternate between my Glossier Mega Greens Galaxy Pack or Neutrogena’s Clear Pore Cleanser Mask. Regardless of which one I pick my face always feels refreshed; the result is a deep clean with glowing radiant skin afterward!

After washing the face and/or rinsing my mask off I spray Rodial’s Dragon’s Blood Hyaluronic Tonic. I’ve always believed in the power of a good toner but I love this one because not only does it smell nice but the spray bottle also makes it easy to apply.

Finally, just before I apply my dermatologist prescribed acne medication I apply a light layer of Baxter of California’s Oil Free Moisturizer. I’m sure growing up your mom told you to always moisturize and she was right! If you don’t use a moisturizer for your face your skin will overproduce oil to compensate and then that surplus of skin oil will lead to unwanted breakouts.

There you have it. My easy AF before bed skin routine.  Dudes, there’s nothing wrong with investing in great skincare. It’s essential we too clean up our facades if we want to impress so for it and give these products a try!
