You are probably used to dozens of influencers and gurus telling you all about their “skincare routine” or makeup routine.
It just so happens that 99% of these guides relate to prepping your skin or applying makeup. In contrast, your night skincare routine is too important to ignore, and sadly hardly anyone talks about it. While there isn't a one-size-fits-all routine, there is a foundation regimen that everyone should have in place.
Here are the essential steps for your evening skincare routine:
Remove All Makeup. Sleeping in your makeup is a cardinal skincare sin, and usually, a cleanser isn't enough to remove everything. We recommend starting your nighttime routine with a gentle makeup remover.
Use A Gentle Cleanser. No matter your skin type, a gentle cleanser that won't strip your skin of natural oil and disrupt your skin's microbiome is essential. The next logical step would be toner, thankfully we’ve combined both in our Toner Cleanser
Personal Treatment. This step is where you can customize the routine tailored to your skin concerns, whether that's a serum or prescription product. This is also where you put any spot treatments on. Have a look at the Estala Anti-Aging Line to find what suits your personal needs.
Eye Cream. Eye creams aren't bogus—when used as a form of preventative care, they're beneficial because they provide the thin skin around your eyes with a targeted treatment. Look for one with peptides, which are super hydrating. For best results, use our Revitalizing Eye Cream
Moisturize. Here, you want a skin barrier–repairing moisturizer to help rejuvenate the health of the skin. In other words, choose something hydrating that won't clog your pores. We're fans of products that contain hyaluronic acid because it helps your skin retain moisture.
