There was a time in my past that I partied so hard that all I could manage to do before bed was take off my shoes.
There was a time when I actually thought that eye makeup I had slept in looked even more appealing.
There was a time when I used face wipes for cleansing.
But I am old, and that is both my excuse and my advantage. My excuse because it was hard to know better back then. There was no You Tube to guide me! And my advantage because I am wiser. Or at least I don´t party as hard anymore.
Whatever the reason may be, my evening skincare routine has evolved. And if you care, I will show you what I do step by step.
While my mornings are all about an efficient, streamlined routine (if you fancy taking a look, click here), in the evenings I really like to take my time. Being a new mum with Mr Loca working crazy hours, this tends to be the me-time I get on an average day and I try to make the most of it.
Not in order of appliance (is that even a word?)
Wearing SPF and make-up on a (almost) daily base, I make sure to give my skin a proper cleanse. No matter how late it is and how tired I am, I just can´t just go to sleep without that. The thought of the days grime clogging my pores, feeding the bacteria and causing wrinkles and zits leaves me so itchy, it makes me get
up at 3 am, after I fell asleep on the couch trying to read and get on with my full on routine.
I just wish, I had that discipline considering exercise.
