How important is a nighttime skincare routine? Short answer: VERY!

Your nighttime skincare routine actually serves a completely different function than your morning routine. Each morning, you are prepping your skin to protect itself from any free radicals that you’ll encounter throughout the day, including your makeup, air pollution, dirt, bacteria and more.  A gentle cleanser, toner and moisturizer with SPF should do the trick!

Before you go to bed, your main goal is to make sure your skin is completely clean and help it repair itself overnight. It’s super important to use the right products, but when it’s late and your bed is calling your name, it’s so easy to “forget” to give your skin some TLC.

We’ve simplified the process to just the absolute essentials, so your skin will get the attention it needs every night in just 5 minutes!

Step 1: Double Cleanser

Always remember to start with a makeup remover! Your makeup not only clogs your pores, but throughout the day, it collects lots of bacteria and dirt. Our Chamomile & Green Tea Makeup Remover has a unique gel consistency and is gentle enough for all skin types.

Follow with a cleanser that suits your skin type. For those with dry skin, we recommend an oil-based cleanser like our best-selling ADE Creamy Fruit Oil Cleanser (this one can actually double as a makeup remover). If you have oily skin to normal skin, we recommend our Clarifying Facial Wash.

Step 2: Toner

Use a cotton ball to wipe our Aloe Vera Toner all over your face and neck. Toners will remove every last trace of dirt, makeup and other impurities. Add our Clarifying Herbal Astringent to your routine if you need to dry out excess oil.

Step 3: Serum

Rub a few drops of your favorite serum for some anti-aging benefits. Our Hyaluronic Acid Serum and Cellagen Renewal Serum are great for all skin types and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles!

Step 4: Moisturizer

Finish off with your favorite moisturizer! Our Perfect Hydration Oil-Free Moisturizer is the best lightweight lotion for oily and combination skin types. Fragrance Free Almond-Aloe is a mediumweight moisturizer for all skin types, or try our Apricot Night Cream if you have very dry skin.

Extras

Once or twice a week, you can also add in an exfoliator like our Apricot Gentle Facial Scrub and a chemical peel like our Papaya-Glycolic Radiant Skin Masque. Using an exfoliator will slough off any dead skin cells that are building up on your skin’s surface, and reveal smoother, brighter skin.

(If you have ultra-sensitive skin, try several of the products above in their Fragrance Free versions!)

Bonus tip: Switch out your pillowcase every week. Your pillow collects tons of dead skin cells and bacteria each night, so switching out your pillowcase frequently is an absolute must!

MT Daily.Sun.Defense Lotion 8oz

 

After such a brutal winter, it was starting to seem like spring would never get here.

But finally, the weather’s starting to warm up, the sun’s shining a little more, and there aren’t knee-high snow drifts to step over every time you leave the house – which means that we can all get back to spending more time outdoors.

Whether you like taking a leisurely walk, going for a challenging hike, playing softball in your yard, or just picnicking with your family in the park, spending time outside means sun exposure. We all know how much damage the sun can inflict on our skin – fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots, and even skin cancer are all possibilities if we don’t protect our skin from UV rays – so wearing SPF every time that we go outside is crucial.

Earth Science Multi-Therapy SPF 15+ Sun Defense Lotion is an ideal option when you want a moisturizer that protects your skin from the sun this spring. This lightweight moisturizer combines the convenience of a face and body lotion with sun protection – a great product for the entire family. The formula contains natural ingredients like aloe, jojoba oil, and licorice root to soothe and soften the skin, as well as antioxidants like green tea and vitamin E to help fight free radical damage.

Best of all, the Multi-Therapy SPF 15+ Sun Defense Lotion absorbs easily into the skin, so it doesn’t leave a greasy residue behind – which means even oily and combination skin types can use it. It also features a fresh, all-natural fragrance that’s ideal for the entire family, so everyone can stay protected when they’re out in the sun.
