What should you include in your evening Skincare routine?

After 20 years as a therapist I have to admit it's the question I hear most from new clients. So here are my simple top 5  tips to help you to create a good evening skincare routine that works for you.

  • Step 1. DOUBLE CLEANSE - yep as the name suggests you need to cleanse twice to effectively remove the makeup and days impurities. Ideally first with a balm cleanser and the second cleanse with a cream or lotion cleanser. Make sure you use a gentle cleanser that suits your skin, your skin should never sting or feel uncomfortable during cleansing and remember to check if your cleanser can be used on the eye area. And avoid exfoliating daily (more on this next week!)
  • Step 2. TONE with either toner or rose water to refresh. This prepares the skin to absorb the good stuff that’s to follow and removes any cleanser residue.
  • Step 3. Apply a BOOSTER such as a serum or facial oil. Ideally massage in the product concentrating on those areas that are prematurely ageing. Take a look at my live videos on The Grange Spa Facebook page for a step by step guide.
  • Step 4. EYE CREAM - the eye area is so much thinner than the skin on the rest of the face so you must only apply a small amount of eye product around the eye contour so that you don’t overload the delicate skin.
  • Step 5. Seal it all in with a MOISTURISER or night balm. This will assist your skin in repairing itself whilst you sleep.

MOST IMPORTANTLY adapt the routine to suit you! 

If you’re stuck for time or have no other routine than a wash in the shower then start small. Cleansing is the first step, even if it’s just one cleanse, then once you’ve formed a new habit (yes it will happen! Keep it up for a minimum of 28days and after that it will become as much as your bedtime routine as brushing your teeth!) then add in a moisturiser or night balm, once you see and feel the difference the results will ensure you keep it up.

Last of all yes the products used really do make a difference - if you don’t feel a difference with your current products or if they irritate your skin in anyway then make a change. 

 Enjoy a blissful nights sleep and wake to a dewy glow!
