My Updated Skin Care Routine (Night Time) + Beauty tricks and tips! :)

Saturday, October 19, 2013

Hello beauties, I just want to share with all of you my updated skincare routine during night time. Not much has change but definitely I've been loving AVENE so much that I actually use the moisturizer now. Before I only use my shiseido white up emulsion as my moisturizer for night time and day time (as seen here) but now I'm growing to love Avene more so I use this one before bed time and then I also added an anti-wrinkle cream because ya' know.. don't wait to have them to treat them. So anyways....

Let's start with the cleansing.. I use Avene Soapless Gel Cleanser Php 1,235 all day err'day as you can see its actually dying on me already.. lol I badly needed to purchase a new facial wash seriously. I actually have quite a few in mind but in the mean time I wanna use what's left on this lovely cleanser. I love this so much that I have blogged about this quite a few times (as seen here and here). This cleanser is so gentle on the skin and it didn't break me out or anything.. This soap-free cleanser can eliminate impurities and excess sebum without stripping the skin. Infact, it's made out of 56% Avene thermal spring water and is definitely soap free.

 • PH 7.2 respects the skin’s natural balance, minimizing the trigger of excess sebum production 
• Deep cleansing action purifies without stripping the skin
• Avène Thermal Spring Water to soothe and soften skin
• Pleasant fragrance tolerated by sensitive skin  
 • Hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic
• Soap-free

I personally find this to be super moisturizing and it's perfect for those with sensitive skin because it really works wonders and so gentle on the skin. Plus, although it might be a bit expensive, a little comes a long way.. so this should last you for a couple of months.. like 6 months at most. This is perfect for those who have oily skin and blemish prone type of skin although this is actually safe for any skin type out there, normal, oily, or combination. This is really great and it's sad that I have to say goodbye to this.. because as much as I want to keep repurchasing this, I also want to explore more cleansers out there specifically those with collagen or Vitamin C.

ANYWAYS, just a quick beauty trick! 
I bought a foaming net last month at SAIZEN store for only Php 88! It comes with 2 foaming nets, white and Pink! the reason behind is that.... I just converted into foaming. Yay go me! :)

 I've learned that even though cleansing is the most essential part of a good skincare routine, it is also the most harmful. The rubbing motion while we cleanse our face can actually stress our skin and eventually creates premature lines/wrinkles. Yikes!

How to foam up your cleanser:
1. Wet the foaming net
2. Put a wee bit of cleanser
3. Rub it until it creates foam
4. Then let the bubbles do its work

I actually uploaded a video on my instagram if you haven't seen it yet.
The reason behind foaming is for us to actually minimize the rubbing motion that can cause great stress on our skin by allowing the bubbles (that are even smaller than our pores) to deeply cleanse our face more efficiently and gently instead of allowing our fingers to do the rubbing. Foaming is very popular here in Asia, it's actually the secret of having a really good skin like the Japanese. And just so you know, foaming in a manual way or via using a foaming net is different from the normal foaming cleansers out there. You actually might want to avoid those because foaming cleansers can actually make you age up really fast because of it's harmful ingredients that creates the foam. Read more about the harmful foaming here.

So after cleaning my face I use Fresca restore me soothing eye gel Php 1,032. I blogged about this hydrating eye cream here if you wanna check it out. This has more of a runny cream consistency and it's really hydrating. I also use the grow eye cream trial sachet that I got from glossy box. I find both very helpful in hydrating my eye area. It's important to keep the under eye area really hydrated because there's no functioning oil gland underneath our eyes so make sure to keep it moisturized at all times to avoid wrinkles.

And ofcourse, I just added an anti-wrinkle cream.. I use OLAY age protect Php129 for prevention. Basically just to soften the lines. I don't use this entirely for my face as I find this heavy and really thick so I only use this at night on areas that are prone to wrinkles such as forehead, smile lines or frown lines, neck, and where the crow feet tends to appear. Prevention is always better than cure! so start now before it's too late.

Then as for my moisturizer.. I'm currently using this Avene Cleanance K cream-gel Php1070 as my night time moisturizer because I feel like during the night time, I needed something that could actually help repair my skin for the better, something like an intense skin repair type of thing (?)... as I have mentioned before I have some sort of hormonal imbalance and I was using pills to combat any possible acne I may have but since I stopped pills because I was gaining a lot of weight I actually needed good products to keep things in place, and I think Avene really does its job in preventing my skin to breakout. At the same time because this thing can actually control oil I find this very hydrating though. It's kind of a thick type of cream/gel consistency but it absorbs instantly. And what I do is I get a bit of it and then warm it on my fingers (just to activate the ingredients) and then pat it all over my face and then I gently slap my face or tap it with my fingers to promote blood circulation. It may sting a bit especially if you have breakouts but it should go away after a few minutes.

Then last but definitely not the least... Just another beauty trick!
I use petroleum jelly/vaseline for my lashes and lips. :)
I'm actually planning to have a separate blog about this petroleum jelly soon with pictures and stuff because I want to share with you guys how it did an amazing job of lengthening my lashes. It works like magic! I put this on my lashes and massage it a bit every night before I go to bed and I swear it really helps my lashes to grow. I actually skipped the mascara in the morning and use this instead. Try it yourself! It is also very hydrating for the lips and it's actually one of my staple beauty regimen eversince. I love petroleum jelly and I definitely can't live without it.

Go bat your lashes! :))


also.. I might have a new blog about another updated skincare routine soon.. because I might buy some new stuff like a new toner and a facial wash.. and besides, I might have a lot of free time now to blog since it's already sem break! yay go me. x
