    Night Routine Pt. 3 - Moisturize Moisturize Moisturize

    Finally the last step! :D

    Products Mentioned:

        This really depends on what works for you and what skin type you are.

    Now slab on the products! XP

    1. Used the toner once again to cleanse the face. The toner helps balance your pH level. Toners are what you use to prep your skin. Sometimes I also use a Tea Tree Oil Mixed with a drugstore toner especially when I have more pimples.
    2. A little bit more of moisture with a mist.
    3. Then serum. Usually serums are known for moisturizing with oils which can be damaging to oily skin so that is why like me you can use a acne prone / non oily serum. This actually applies for anything if you have oily skin. 
    4. Acne spot products if needed.
    5. Eye cream / serum on your eye area (triangle area under your eyes, where you usually put concealers) and the leftover on other fine lines
    6. Bio Oil for the areas that are more dry than other areas. You can use other types of facial oils but I like Bio Oil due to the fact that it helps with acne scars. I would have put this on right after the acne spot treatment but I usually let that dry before I put this on because I did use a more wet product for the acne spot treatment. If yours is a drying product like the Mario Badescu drying lotion, put on the oil before that. And as noted before in Step 1, I use tea tree oil which also helps with acne and scarring.
    7. This is just for me but I put on stye ointment because of the really bad dryness on my eyelids even with the eye cream / serum.
    8. Then a wrinkle care cream only on certain areas like the lines near your mouth, forehead, and temples. 
    9. Lastly, moisturize your lips. MWA

    This routine is really for me. Everyone has different products and routines that fits them. Try out different samples and routines to find what works best for you.

    Night Routine Pt. 2 - Wash Yo Face

    Products Used:
    • foam cleanser
    • face brush / sponge / Clarisonic
    • towel

    Squeaky Clean Our Face

    1. Wet your face in lukewarm water
    2. Put a dime size of your cleanser on your 2 fingers and rub it on your face in circular motions.
    3. Using a facial brush / sponge / your mechanical face brush, cleanse your face. 
    Remember to not be rough and do it lightly as possible. 
    For Clarisonic you should brush from inner to outward just as described in Part 1. (nose to ears and slightly upward. Because it is brushing for you, you do not have to be rush with your brush.

    Massage your face. Your muscles in your face also gets cramped just like any other part of your body. Releasing them helps your face become smaller. You can also prevent cramping by doing facial exercises throughout the day (not mentioned in video).

          5.  After the minute is up (mechanical ones usually have a timer), wash it off with water. Instead of rubbing your entire face with water, splash your face with water. You may use 1-2 fingers if needed to get rid of the soup in the creases of your face. 

    All soup must be out including your hairline.

          6. Finish off with a splash of cold water to now close up the pores you have opened up with the warm water.
          7.  Now towel off gently. Do not rub the towel all over your face but gently press the towel onto your face to get the water out. You can also massage your cheekbones while doing this with your fingers and / or hands. 

    Don't forget the hairline!

    In between Part 2 and Part 3, you may put on a mask; especially the quick and easy sheet masks =]

    Night Routine Pt. 1 - Take Off Your Makeup

    Products Used:
    • cotton pads
    • eye makeup remover
    • makeup remover wipes
    • Optional: face oil / cream & tissue/towel

    Remove Your Makeup

    1. Pour some eye makeup remover on a cotton pad.
    2. Put the soaked cotton pad on your eye for about 10 seconds and swipe off the makeup using inner to outer swipes.
    3. Do the other eye with the back of the cotton pad or another new cotton pad.
    4. If you have any remaining clean sides, use it to wipe off your lips and/or eye brows.
    5. Then grab a makeup remover wipe to wipe away your remaining face makeup.
    6. Again wipe off the makeup using the swipe motion from the inner part of your face to the outer part, slighting lifting upwards (nose to hairline). This helps prevents wrinkles and sagging. 
    7. Don't forget your chin / neck area where you may have connected the foundation color to your skin color / contoured with bronzer.
    8. Again with any empty clean spots on your used makeup wipe or another new wipe, clean your hairline by using your forefinger and middle finger in circular motions along the hairline. 
    Use a facial oil / lotion to take off the remaining makeup off. Use 2- 3 fingers in circular motions.
    You may either tissue it off / wash it off / grab a small towel, wet it if with lukewarm water and wipe it off. Use directions that come with the product you are using.

    Influenster Refresh VoxBox

    This voxbox is definitely refreshing! Loved all the products given! Especially the mask by Montagne Jeunesse. The flosses are already my go to so enough said ;] The only thing I didn't really like is the shake..just generally don't like shakes that are packaged so this is my personal taste.
