Skin Talk : Night Routine

In this post, I will be talking about my night routine. I have previously talked about my morning routine, you can check on the post here.

I am going to post two pictures of my current skin condition as of today (20th June 2017). Photos are taken with Iphone 7 camera.

Basically most items I use for my morning routine, I use them in my night routine too. I just switch up 3-4 products from my morning routine. 
I won't repeat what I have already talked about in my morning routine and just skip to the stuffs I switch up or add on to my night routine. 

So, for my night routine, instead of using the Hada Labo Hyaluronic Acid Lotion , I will replace it with the Tony Moly Galactomyces First Essence / Skinfood Black Sugar Perfect First Serum. These are heavier in consistency, that's why I prefer to use them during night time where I have time to slowly let the product to absorb and pat it into my skin. 

For serums, I will be using the It's Skin SYN-AKE 10 Serum. Honestly this serum is not doing anything for me whatsoever. I am just trying to finish this bottle up and open my new serums. Can't wait! And then, I have to talk about a new night skincare routine. Well, I will just update on my serum then. Till then. 

I layer on rich moisturizers during the night. I have finally bought the Dr. Morita Snail Mucin Watery Essence Moisturizer. This product is a game changer, if you have not tried it, run to your nearest Guardian and get yourself one. It has made my skin so bright and plump. I am so glad I took the advice of the Malaysian beauty lovers on the twittersphere and got this cream. I alternate this moisturizer with my Lancome Energie de Vie or Indeed Lab's Hydraluron Moisturizing Jelly
It mainly depends on how my skin feels that day. If I want to look fresher and brighter the next day I will use Dr. Morita's. If I feel my skin looks tired and dull, I will switch to Lancome's and when my skin's really dry and dehydrated, I will use the Hydraluron Moisturizing Jelly. 

My final step is the Bio-Essence Face Lifting Cream. I will apply this cream all over my face and massage the cream in with upward motion from my chin. I have been using this cream eversince discovering it, my skin is still quite young the effect is not obvious but it's better to prevent sagging skin as I am over 25. I like the tingly and tightening effect I get after applying this cream. It's like the cream is doing its work. 

Lately, I also have been finding myself incorporating my The Ordinary products into my night routine. I have the Alpha Arbutin, Niacinamide, Retinoid 2% and Azelaic Acid. I use them when I feel my skin needs them and I never use them all at once. I switch them up according to my skin needs. Mixing all of them would create a total disaster as there will be too many things going on in the concoction and my skin will just go haywire.
So far I have been loving the Retinoid 2%, it has done wonders for my skin. The Niacinamide is wonderful for spotty days.
I am still trying out the Azelaic Acid and Alpha Arbutin, I will report back soon.
