Dirt, excess oil and impurities can accumulate on the surface of the skin throughout the day, which means that it is extremely important to finish your night skin care with as fresh a face as possible, especially if you tend to have oily skin. If you do not use a facial cleanser to wash your face before going to bed, all these impurities that have accumulated can clog your pores, which can lead to rashes and blackheads, as well as a more radiant complexion. Not exactly our idea of fun! Care for oily skin before going to bed should not be difficult, however. Below is a simple oily skin night care routine with tips on how to find the makeup remover, facial cleanser, face mask and moisturizer for your skin type.
– ROUTINE SKIN CARE-NIGHT-by-STEP #1: ROLLING WITH WATER MICELLAR
The first step in your night skin care routine should be you remove makeup. A simple and gentle way to do this is to use micellar water. Micellar water is fed by tiny micelles – oil molecules- that act like a magnet to lift dirt, oil and makeup up and away from the skin. Look for a micellar water for oily skin, such as the L’Oréal Paris Micellaire Cleansing Water complete Cleanser for Normal to Oily skin, which cleanses and mattifies your complexion while removing makeup. To use it, saturate a cotton pad with your micellar water and then sweep it over your face until all your makeup is completely gone. If you are sometimes too tired to remove your makeup before going to bed, keep the micellar water bottle with a pack of cotton pads near your bed so that you can easily access it—since it does not need to be rinsed, you can use micellar water almost anywhere.
– ROUTINE SKIN CARE-NIGHT-by-STEP #2: CLEANSE WITH A CLEANSER FOR THE FACE WITH CLAY
Just as you should not fall asleep angry, you should not let your head hit the pillow if your oily skin is not completely clean. Often, you’ll find that one round of cleansing isn’t enough—that’s why you should consider a double cleanse as part of your nightly skincare routine for oily skin. After wiping your face with micellar water, get a clay facial cleanser like the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Purify & Matify Cleanser. Designed to seamlessly transition from clay to foam, this clay facial cleanser removes daily impurities from the surface of the skin without drying it out too much. Immediately the skin is cleaned of dirt, oil and pollution, leaving a clean and clear appearance. The skin is also purer with a matte finish. Before going to bed, squeeze the facial cleanser into your hands and add water to turn it from clay into foam. Gently massage the facial cleanser onto your face in a circular motion, then rinse thoroughly with warm water and dry.
– ROUTINE SKIN CARE-NIGHT-BY-STEP #3: WEAR A FACE MASK
Face masks aren’t just a part of a spa experience—you can also use a few times a week to take your night skincare routine to the next level. Sit down with a cup of soothing tea, lift your feet and apply the L’Oréal Paris Pure Clay Purifier and Mattify Face Mask to your skin after cleansing. Formulated with three types of clay and eucalyptus leaf extract, this face mask helps to remove the accumulation of impurities, dirt and oils and reduce the appearance of excess shine. Apply an even layer to clean and dry skin, leave for 10-15 minutes, then rinse with warm water. For best results, use three times a week.
