For a very long time, I did not have a night skincare routine. It was only during my mid-twenties that I learned the importance of it. As my skin got more exposed to the pollution, and I started facing stress and tensions daily not to mention the binge eating, it started to show on my skin in the form of acne and blemishes. The acne got so bad that it made me extremely conscious, and I decided to take the matter into my own hands.
The very first thing I do after returning from work is to take off my make up. Even if you are a person who does not use much makeup, make sure to wipe your skin clean as there can be impurities as a result of pollution or even your sunscreen or day cream can mix with the sweat and remain on your skin.
Take a wipe and gently clean your face. I use the Tea Tree range from The Body Shop for my entire night skin routine. Therefore, I wipe my face using the Tea Tree Cleansing wipes. These are extremely good for the skin with their tea tree oil properties that help fight acne.
Once that is done, I move onto my second step, which is washing my face using The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Clearing Facial Wash. This comes in a bottle that can last for a very long time. I have to warn you about the strong fragrance of tea tree that can be a bothering issue for some. But since the product has worked wonders for me, I think you will get habitual. I take a little facial wash on to my fingers and gently rub them against each other to create a foam-like consistency before applying it all over my face and neck. Then I wash it off using normal water and then pat my skin dry.
Then I move onto the third step, which is applying the Body Shop Tea Tree Night Lotion. The lotion is extremely light on the skin and does not feel too heavy. One or two pumps from the bottle are enough for the entire face and neck, which I would recommend you to do in slow massage form.
The last step is applying the Body Shop Tea Tree Oil, which I use only on the affected areas of my skin where the acne is active. For this, I take a cotton bud and dip it into the oil and gently apply it on the affected areas.
Allow your skin to breathe; therefore, don’t cover your face with your bedsheet or duvet while sleeping. Drink plenty of water to keep your skin hydrated at all times.
