My Nighttime Skin Care Routine – Winter Edition

Welcome back to my second installment in my winter skin care series, my nighttime skin care routine! Cold, windy days are leaving my skin screaming for more moisture at night so I have changed up my skin care routine and listed below are the skin care products I use every night that gives my skin what it needs during the long nights of winter:

*The Body Shop Chamomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter This cleanser melts away all traces of makeup including eye makeup without drying. This is the best makeup remover I have used and will repurchase again when I run out!

 *CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser This is an excellent cleanser for normal to dry skin, doesn’t leave your skin dry after cleansing and I will be repurchasing when I run out!

 *Alpha Skin Care Enhanced Revitalizing 12% Glycolic Acid Cream This cream contains 12% glycolic acid and helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. I use this every night and I love this product!

 *Beauty Drops Vitamin E Moisturizer for Sensitive Skin This moisturizing cream is perfect for overnight. It provides enough hydration without being too heavy or greasy.

 *CeraVe PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion This moisturizing gel lotion is for normal to dry skin, contains ceramides, niacinamide and hyaluronic acid. I use this every night over the Vitamin E Moisturizer.

*CeraVe Eye Repair Cream This eye cream is for all skin types, helps to reduce dark circles and puffiness and contains ceramides and a marine and botanical complex. I use this around my eyes every night.

*Perfectly Pure Natural Vitamin E Moisturizing Stick I use this over the CeraVe Eye Repair Cream. The two together are a perfect combo for your eyes at night!

 *Physicians Formula Argan Wear Ultra Nourishing Argan Oil I apply this last and it provides a blanket of moisture that is wonderful for overnight.

*Trader Joe’s 100% Australian Tea Tree Oil I use this to spot treat those dreaded blemishes that seem to pop up at the most inopportune time. I keep repurchasing this because it works and I use this at night when needed.

*Aquaphor Lip Repair I apply this over Carmex Lip Balm before bed and my lips are soft and hydrated when I get up in the morning.


In addition to my nightly skin care routine, I also exfoliate once a week, I deep clean my skin once a week and I mask twice a week. Listed below is the product I use to exfoliate, the tool I use to deep clean my skin and the masks I use:

*Freeman Charcoal & Black Sugar Polishing Mask I discovered this polishing mask about a year ago and I like how this makes my skin feel. This is a 2 in 1 product. It’s a purifying mask that you leave on cleansed skin for about 7 minutes then black sugar helps exfoliate your skin and leaves your skin smooth and hydrated.

 *Collagen Essence Fresh Aloe & Cucumber Facial Tissue Mask There are 2 sheet masks inside the box, Fresh Aloe and Cucumber. Both masks are drenched with anti-aging and moisturizing ingredients. You leave the sheet mask on for 15-20 minutes on cleansed skin. These masks leave my skin soft and moisturized and I have repurchased this numerous times because it works!

 *Clarisonic Mia 2 Once a week I deep clean using my Clarisonic Mia 2 along with the CeraVe Hydrating Cleanser for 2 minutes then follow up with the Collagen Essence Fresh Aloe or Cucumber Facial Tissue Mask (and the rest of my nighttime skin care regimen) and my skin looks and feels wonderful when I get up the next morning!

These are the products I use every night (and weekly) that helps keep my skin moisturized, exfoliated and deeply clean. I hope you enjoyed reading my second installment in my winter skin care series and look for my last installment on Friday and until then, stay happy, healthy and beautiful!
