Throughout my entire adult life, one thing that’s remained consistent with my skincare is a dedication to my nighttime beauty routine.
It’s really as simple as this, if I don’t give my skin a good cleanse and re-nurturing with my favourite products, I won’t wake up with better skin. It’s rougher – more dull and likely to have blackheads or pimples. It’s overnight that your skin does it’s repair job, so it’s about giving that process a fighting chance and waking up with a clear, glowing visage.
I’ve been using Estee Lauder’s famed ‘Advanced Night Repair’ serum for some time now – and more recently, had the chance to start using new products within the range to complement. I’m crazy about the newly launched ‘Advanced Night Micro Cleansing Balm’ – partly because I’m getting older and my skin just can not tolerate harsh soaps ripping all the natural goodness from my skin. I hate that feeling of tightness after cleansing. It’s like my skin is screaming. What comes next is an overproduction of oil to compensate generally rougher texture. The balm leaves my skin feeling very clean without being stripped (so important!) – and it’s also a stellar product to travel with as it’s not going to burst in your bag all over the place.
As for the rest, I’ve worked together with Estee Lauder and #esteestories to create this video – to honk my own horn for a moment (Toot toot!). I feel like my skin is looking pretty great – and this might not be what you’ve experienced, but I genuinely feel like a consistent night time routine has been even more transformational than whatever I’m doing in the morning.
Thanks so much to the Estee Lauder team for inviting me to share with ya’ll! You can see my full interview at Estee Stories HERE.
