Get rid of makeup.
Using either your makeup wipes or makeup remover—or both—gently get rid of the day’s makeup. Use oil-based makeup removers in particular to remove waterproof eye makeup. Clean your face with your facial wash, followed by toner.
Let your skin regenerate and repair itself by patting on a nighttime serum for your skin. Massage a few drops of the product onto your face using your fingertips.
Night eye cream.
Apply a thicker eye cream to lock in moisture as you sleep.
Your skin gets really dry when you hit the sheets every night, so use a richer moisturizer for your skin. That’s it! You’re ready to go to sleep.
Use a mask.
Deep clean your skin by using a clay mask at least once a week. The clay mask will tighten your pores and get rid of bacteria that can potentially lead to nasty breakouts.
