I have a pretty firm day time skincare routine. My problem is the night time. I don’t know if I should just cleanse or use a makeup remover cloth and then cleanse? Should I use a toner? Should I be using some kind of ant-aging serum? Should I moisturize? I have combination skin with mild acne. I am just not sure what to do at night for my 25 year old skin.

I am 27 and at night I cleanse (with a foam cleanser that takes off makeup), do make-up remover on my eyes, tone my whole face, put eye cream on and then night moisturiser.
My friend is a beauty therapist and she said in your 20’s you don’t have to worry too much about it so long as you are taking your make-up off each night and are doing some sort of moisturizing but she recommended from the age of 25 to use an eye cream and a night cream.
I would recommend trying a moisturizer at night but be careful not to get one that is too oily or thick.

@nzgirl: Thank you. What toner do you use? I am considering CeraVe night time moisturizer. I have heard good things about it.

I just recently began a nighttime skincare regiment. I take my makeup off in the shower with cleansing oil, and then moisturize. I use sephora’s new skincare moisturizer called “instant moisturizer” it absorbs really quickly.

I use Nivea Visage toner, some toners smell really strong and they dry my already dry skin out but this one doesn’t – and its cheap!
At the moment I am using night of Olay firming cream, I have really dry skin and so it feels great, yet not too thick. In a few years I will change to a better brand tho, like Elizabeth Arden night cream, but for now this one is fine.

I wash and moisturize my face daily. Every few days I do a scrub or a mask.

I wash and moisturize daily. For a while I had been using an amazing toner from Eau Thermale Avene because I got a small one as a free sample, but now that it ran out I don’t bother with one. Maybe when I’m out of school I’ll start buying it because it’s a really amazing toner!

my dermatologist recomends CeraVe PM moisturizing lotion. I started using their face wash and AM moisturizing lotion (which has spf 30) as well.

Do you have the option of visiting a dermatologist for a consulation re: the acne?
So many toners and serums exacerbate irritable skin that I would avoid anything beyond gentle cleansing and moisturizing until you get a handle on what’s making your skin flare up.

I have a hard time iwht my skin because I still break out- but I also want to prevent harsh lines etc. I wash every night (try to) with a “kiss my face” gentle bar of facial soup. Then I use a toner (organic- I think it is Avalon Ogranics) then I put on a great natural product I found that is basically olive oil and other good things to nourish the skin. In the daytime I always wear SPF (since forever).
