These days we’re bombarded with lots of different skincare advice coming from lots of different angles. Whether that be from the latest skincare professional, or newest ‘Skinfluencer’, or the hottest TikTok skincare trend, we’re constantly being told the ‘best’ way to care for our skin. So today we’re taking it back to basics!
Here is our sure-fire way to achieve that glow from within using our 3 step skincare routine for a night out!
We must begin by taking the day off with this Clinique Take the Day off cleanser. Throughout the day your skin is put through a lot! From the makeup you apply in the morning to the exposure to pollutants and bacteria – disgusting, I know! That’s why cleansing is an essential step that’s made it into our simple yet effective skincare routine.
Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm: this cult favourite is a lightweight makeup remover that transforms from a solid balm into a silky oil to break down any makeup, thoroughly cleanse the skin and remove all the dirt and grime from the day. It’s non-greasy, non-drying formula makes it perfect for all skin types.
The next step is to rehydrate the skin. Moisturising helps to restore the nutrients and moisture that can often be lost during cleansing, as well as creating a barrier to help protect your skin from pollutants and bacteria. Aside from these skin benefits, moisturiser can also massively help with makeup application by smoothing out skin texture for more even application and can even help it last longer.
Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Base: this award winning formula of Vitamin B, C and E, Shea Butter and Hyaluronic Acid works to moisturise as well as prime the skin ready for make-up application. Although it’s rich consistency is deceiving, it is in fact designed for normal to oily skin to give you fresh, healthy-looking skin whilst also reducing the appearance of fine lines and pores.
If after a long day at work your skin is looking particularly tired then try to bring that extra glow back into your skin using some kind of illuminating serum or primer. Serums and primers are also great for those with drier skin as it adds an extra bit of hydration into the skin.
Rodial Soft Focus Glow Booster Drops: Unlike more traditional silicone-based primers, this product feels more like a light-weight serum that can either be applied by itself to the skin or mixed in with foundation to give that glow from within. Combining skincare and makeup is the perfect way to create a more natural, dewy look for a night out.
