My Nighttime Skincare Routine (for When I’m Breaking Out)!
In this video, I’ll show you my 5-step nighttime skincare routine for when I’m breaking out!
I have oily, acne-prone skin, so I have designated products to treat my breakouts.
Step one: Even when I’m not breaking out, I like to remove most of my makeup with a makeup remover wipe. One of my go-to makeup removers are Simple’s Makeup Wipes! Simple is a great brand for sensitive skin and good for all skin types. These particular wipes even have the strength to remove waterproof mascara!
Step two: Now that most of my makeup is removed (but not all), I thoroughly cleanse my skin with a gentle, yet effective, cleanser. There are many brands out there that provide decent cleansers such as Purlisse!
This Purlisse Blue Lotus 4-in-1 Cleansing Milk gently removes makeup but also tones & soothes, and it’s good for all skin types.
This cleansing milk includes blue lotus which is an antioxidant known for anti-inflammatory benefits, white tea to soothe skin, soy milk that’s rich in amino acids & maintains skin elasticity, and whole oat to calm and soothe sensitive skin. 👶🏻
Step three: Toner! I juggle between a few different timers, but when I’m dealing with breakouts then I really like to use something that will help my skin exfoliate, like Paula’s Choice Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant. This contains salicylic acid and is OK for all skin types. This product unclogs pores and smooths & evens skin tone. The bottle says this is OK to use up to two times each day, but I opt to only use it at night 3-4 times a week. 🗓
Step 4: Time for treatment serums & creams! Like my toners, I juggle between a few different ones depending on what I’m treating my skin for. For breakouts, I just started using Derm7+ Acne Clearifying Cream. 👀
The bottle doesn’t say much about the product ingredients, but I do know that it was formulated by a celebrity esthetician named Erica Carey. Erica specializes in skin of people of color who suffer from the worst acne you can imagine. I was fortunate to receive the opportunity to get a facial from Erica, and she sent me home with a sample of this Acne clearifying cream! I recently purchased a full jar, and for the month that I’ve been using it, it’s been working! 💕
Step five: No matter what, whether you wear makeup or not, whether you complete my steps 3 & 4 or not, you MUST do this each and every night - MOISTURIZE! Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize. 🧴
When I told a bunch of influencers my age one day, they asked what my secret was to look younger than I am. The true answer is: my oily skin! ✨
Oil preserves the skin, and if it’s your natural skin oils keeping your skin dewy, then even better. And although oily skin is already naturally moisturized in a sense, you’ll still need to use a moisturizer.
I told them to, especially if they had dry skin, use hydrating serums and ALWAYS moisturize (day & night). 💦
In this video, I use High Beauty’s High Five Cannabis Facial Moisturizer! It’s formulated with 20% Cannabis Sativa Oil (free of THC) and helps calm, soothe, hydrate, and protect the skin! 💚
There you have it! That’s my nighttime skincare routine for when I’m breaking out! Most of these products you can use even when you’re not breaking out, but a couple of them are GREAT for when you are.
