My Guide to Morning and Night time Skincare Rituals (With a Splash of Humor)

Morning Skincare Routine: Rise and Shine, Gorgeous!

Let’s Be Real: Your Skincare Routine Doesn’t Have to Be an Unpaid Internship

 Caring for your skin can sometimes feel like a never-ending part-time gig with no time to chill. But don't worry! I've got your back with a morning and night skincare routine that'll have you glowing like a boss without the boredom. Get ready for a skincare routine that's as fun as it is fab!

Starting your day with a fresh face is like having a double-shot espresso—vital and invigorating. Here’s your step-by-step morning skincare routine:

Morning Skincare Routine: Rise and Shine, Gorgeous!

1. Cleansing AM

   Why: Here's waking up with last night's pizza grease on your face, which isn't cute.

   How: Splash some water on your face(channel your inner movie waking up looking flawless). Use a gentle cleanser that suits your skin type and massage it like you're getting paid. Rinse with lukewarm water.

2. Toning

 I never use a toner.

3. Serum Application AM

   Why: Serums are like that one friend who has all the solutions. They target specific skin issues and make you look fabulous.

   How: Press drops into your skin like you're sealing the deal. Vitamin C serums are great for the morning because they fight you're radicals (not to be confused with free radicals from the '60s).

4. Moisturizing AM

   Why: Because nobody likes a flaky face. Hydration is key.

Or just use your sunscreen as a moisturiser; I do this mostly.

5. Sun Protection

   Why: To prevent turning into a human raisin. Sunscreen is non-negotiable. This is the most essential part of my skincare. I never leave the house without Factor Fifty

   How: Slather on a broad-spectrum SPF 30-50 or higher. Remember, sunscreen is like the holy grail of skincare. Reapply every two hours if you're out and about because the sun is relentless. At the moment, I'm using this product. It's suitable for my combination skin.

Night time Skincare Routine does all its heavy lifting while you sleep, so your nighttime routine is about setting it up for success. Here's your step-by-step guide:

1. Makeup Removal

   Why: Sleeping in makeup is asking for a breakout. Let your skin breathe.

   How: Use a gentle makeup remover or micellar water. If your eye makeup is stubborn, try an oil-based remover. Think of it as sending your makeup on a one-way vacation.

2. Cleansing PM

   Why: To eliminate the day's grime, oil, and questionable life choices.

   How: Use a cleanser suited to your skin type. Double cleansing is like the VIP treatment for your face—start with an oil-based cleanser, then follow up with a water-based one. These are what I'm using at the moment.

3. Exfoliation (2-3 times a week)**

   Why: To buff away dead skin cells and reveal your inner glow. It's like spring cleaning for your face.

   How: Use a chemical exfoliant. Stay moderate, or you'll look like you got too friendly with a sandblaster.

I use either a glycollic exfoliator or an AHA

4. Toning

I never use a toner.

5. Serum Application PM

    Why: Nighttime serums are like magic potions that work while you sleep.

   How: Use a few drops of a serum with ingredients like retinol, hyaluronic acid, or peptides. Apply and let the magic happen.

I layer up the following serums-

    I finish up with-    Dermatica 0.05% Tretinoin Niacinamide 4% and Azelelic Acid 4%Dermatica 0.05% Tretinoin Niacinamide 4% and Azelelic Acid 4%

6. Eye Cream PM

   Why: The skin around your eyes is delicate and deserves extra love.

   How: Gently apply an eye cream with your ring finger (it's the weakest finger and less likely to cause wrinkles). Focus on the under-eye and crow's feet.

7. Moisturising PM

   Why: Night creams are like a comfy blanket on your face, helping with overnight repair.

   How: Apply a hydrating moisturizer or a night cream. Cover your face and neck, and dream of waking up fabulous.

    I moisturise with
