Bedside Beauty

Bedside Beauty

I love a good evening skin ritual, starting with cleansing my skin all the way down to moisturisers, oils and treatments. Whilst I try and keep most of my evening skincare next to my vanity, they tend to make my way to my bedside drawer - as the lazy girl in me loves to snuggle in bed with the TV on or music playing and give my skin the attention it needs as I wind down for bed. 

Despite removing my makeup earlier in the day, I have to always cleanse my skin for a second time to help remove any last traces of makeup or dirt. I'm a big fan of the Garnier Micellar Water range as it's not only affordable but cleanses the skin, helping to remove makeup and dirt. This range is so close to Bioderma, and Garnier have now released a variety of formulas to suit different skin types meaning that there is something for everyone. 

Once cleansed I like to alternate between the Pixi Glow Tonic and the Kiko Pure Clean Scrub and Peel wipes. The Glow Tonic is a skin lifesaver! Acting as a gentle exfoliator, this removes dead skin cells to reveal brighter looking skin, whilst helping to combat shine and breakouts - and with continued use my breakouts seem to heal quicker. Another favourite of mine is the Pure Clean Scrub and Peel wipes - and a Kim K favourite - these contain alpha hydroxy acids which help to boost the skin's exfoliation process whilst also gently buffing the complexion for a smoother face. A real life saver these wipes help to deeply cleanse the skin whilst leaving my skin looking more radiant.

A nightly must for my skin at the moment is the La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo, which is designed to target the key signs of blemish prone skin. This stuff really works wonders when applied daily, helping to clear breakouts and speed up healing time for those pesky under the skin spots. A thin layer overnight really helps to reduce any redness on the skin and my skin looks significantly clearer after just a few days use.

I like to give my skin a treat with the La Roche-Posay Pigmentclar for Eyes, this stuff works like a dream to correct dark circles under the eyes which is brilliant towards the end of the week when I find myself feeling and my skin looking more tired. This helps to even out the skin tone whilst brightening dull under eye skin, complete with light-reflecting particles I love how this illuminates the under eye area to give the appearance of brighter looking skin.

My bedside table would not be complete without the Benefit B.Right! Total Moisture moisturiser, this helps give my skin a much needed injection of moisture when it's left looking dehydrated. The texture is slightly thicker, however this hydrated the skin and feels amazing on the skin. Overnight my skin is left feeling silky smooth and a lot more radiant and awake. Especially now that we are heading into the colder months I know I'll be getting a lot of use out of this to prevent dry and flaky patches that usually pop up across my nose and chin areas. 

Another bedside must-have for any pesky breakouts is the Clean and Clear Acne Spot Treatment, with just one treatment I find redness significantly reduced and this helps to speed up the healing process of spots. Working on the most stubborn of blemishes this is an overnight saviour helping to improve the appearance of your complexion even on the worst skin days.
