It’s after hours. You’ve worked all day. You are dead tired. The last thing that you want to do is have to spend a lot of time getting ready for bed. My nightly Proactiv skincare routine is perfectly tailored to be as simple as possible!
Step 1: First, I splash a little water on my face to make sure that it’s damp. Then I squeeze a little of the Deep Cleansing Face Wash on to my palm and rub it together in my hands to spread it. Then I gently massage it all over my face for a good 1 to 2 minutes so that the tiny beads in the formula are helping to exfoliate as best as they can.
Step 2: I let my face dry after using the face wash and then I spread a little bit of the Proactiv Advanced Dark Spot Correcting Serum on every part of my face. This overtime helps reduce and fade unwanted dark spots that have been left on my skin from past pimples. In order for this serum to be completely effective you do have to make sure you are using the Daily Oil Moisturizer SPF 30 every morning as well. And just know that this product works slowly so it’s important to stay consistent with it!
Step 3: Once the serum is dry I move on to the Proactiv Adapalene Gel. With this I try not to use too much of it so I’ll spread a thin layer around my face making sure to avoid my eyes, lips, and nose. This is going to be the most important part of your skincare routine as it is a retinoid medication.
Step 4: The last but not least, I spread the Proactiv Moisture Repair all over my face because it is very important to keep your skin as hydrated as possible. This product both soothes and softens your skin leaving you feeling completely refreshed before bed!
BONUS Add on #1: Something that you can add to your nightly routine are the Proactiv Makeup Cleansing Wipes! I sometimes use these when I want some extra help with taking off my makeup. They really work best on taking off mascara, foundation, and lipstick! You can use this before you start with the other steps in this nightly routine.
BONUS Add on #2: One thing that I have been using for over a decade and absolutely swear by is the Proactiv Skin Purifying Mask. Before I was introduced to any of these other products I was an avid user of this clay mask. Whenever a pimple would pop up I would wash my face, dab a little of this mask on top of it, and let it sit and dry for about 10-15 minutes. Then I would wash it off and in a few days the pimple would be gone. There’s something about the way this mask dries out the actual pimple and stops it from growing that I have always loved. So I started to integrate it into my nightly routine but spaced it out to use once a week. It really gets the job done!
So that concludes my nightly skin care routine! I hope that I have inspired you to give Proactiv a try. I’ve found that you really have to stick with it and commit in order to get the best results!
