I have something to share with you.
I was pretty bad in my twenties with going to bed with makeup on. I would use one of the Oil of Olay disposable facial cloths to remove makeup but as I got closer to 35 and 40, I made a much bigger effort to take care of my skin. I use my Clarisonic 5-6 nights out of the week(1 or 2 nights is for ExfoliKate) and I want to make sure I am using my night products on clean skin(after all, they can be pretty pricey depending on what you use).
My routine at night is simple. Wash my face with purity and the Clarisonic and then finish with two products, Kate Somerville RetAsphere (this is my retinol product) and Boots Night cream, a super affordable moisturizing night cream. The retinol is not too strong in the RetAsphere and I keep reading you need it as you near your 40’s. The night cream is popular overseas and available at Target (translation- super affordable and goes on sale!). Now that I am in my 40’s, I find myself having less breakouts as long as I follow this easy routine regardless of whether I am at home or on the road.
