My Evening Skincare Routine (and mini-rant about the beauty hazards of teaching voice...)

One of my most frequently asked questions is about my skin care routine.

Of course, I can share my skincare routine, but that doesn't necessarily mean it will work for you. Skincare is tricky my friends. I am a 38 year old woman with sensitive, dry skin--and I live in a cold desert (have I mentioned that ever? LOL!) If you're interested in up-ing your skincare game, definitely consult an expert aesthetician.

(You should see me when I get a facial! I am a chatty Kathy by nature, but I go whole hog during a facial! My poor aesthetician is probably expecting a tired mum who just wants to relax--oh no! I ask QUESTIONS! And always buy products...because I am an excellent consumer...)

Here are my general steps:

1. Makeup removal

2. Cleanse

3. Exfoliation

4. Mask

5. Toner

6. Essence

7. Serum

8. Face oil

9. Moisturizer

10. Eye cream

11. Lip treatment/balm

Phew! That's a lot. I know. It's very "extra." But honestly, I cut it down most nights. I rarely exfoliate and mask on the same night--or do either every night. I often skip essence too. At the very least, I cleanse, tone and moisturize. I also never go to bed with makeup on.

I rotate products in and out regularly, but here's a list of the products I used in the video:

1. Makeup remover

Boscia MakeUp-Breakup Cool Cleansing Oil


2. Cleanser

Origins Checks and Balances Frothy Face Wash


3. Exfoliation

Elemis Papaya Enzyme Peel


4. Mask

Hey Honey, Show Your Glow Colloidal Gold and Honey Beauty Mask


5. Toner

Caudalie Lotion Tonique Hydratante


6. Essence

Caudalie Vinoperfect Essence


(OK, I didn't do this step, but this is the one I use when I "essence"...insert stupid meme here)

7. Serum

Kate Sommerville Wrinkle Warrior 2-in-1 Plumping Moisturizer and Serum


8. Face Oil

Fresh Seaberry Moisturizing Face Oil


9. Moisturizer

Liz Earle Superskin Overnight Mask


10. Eye Cream

It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye


11. Lip balm/treatment

(My lip balm was the freebie you get from admissions at Ambrose University, where I teach--that stuff is da bomb! AND FREE!!!)

12. Honorable mention to my acne treatment
