After a long day, our first instinct upon coming home is to remove our makeup and cleanse, then go to bed. That’s it. Sometimes we don’t even bother with other skincare steps or purposely skip it just so we get a few hours of sleep. But it’s time to change that.
Glamour noted that removing makeup can leave your skin dry, especially your eye area and lips. You might also wake up with oily skin the next day if you don’t apply moisturizer at night. There are several factors to consider to keep your skin looking healthy—that means both your face and body. This is why we turned to Maggie Wilson‘s vanity for some ideas.
Her collection consist of various kinds of products, as well as fragrances. If you’re set on improving your skincare and other beauty habits before sleeping, list these down.
Shu Uemura Anti-Oxi+ Pollutant & Dullness Clarifying Cleansing Oil
Before using micellar water or makeup wipes to remove your makeup, it’s best to use a cleansing oil first. This will melt the makeup, making it easier to wipe off later. For this, go for this one from Shu Uemura. It’s made with green tea extracts which provides antioxidant to your skin. Available on Amazon.
La Mer The Moisturizing Gel Cream
Take care of dry skin with this lightweight gel cream. Formulated with Miracle Broth, which gives you radiance and suppleness when you wake up. This is also ideal for warm climates. Available on Nordstrom.
La Mer Eye Concentrate
As mentioned earlier, you need to moisturize the eye area as it gets dry after removing makeup. Maggie uses La Mer’s Eye Concentrate, which targets concerns like dark under eye circles and fine lines. It also comes with a cooling silver-tipped applicator to boost micro-circulation. Available at Rustan’s the Beauty Source.
Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Shampoo
A quick shower before you sleep is ideal, especially when you’ve been out the whole day. (Ugh, pollution!) If needed, wash your hair with Living Proof’s Perfect Hair Day Shampoo to bring back its healthy glow and bounce. Available online.
Jo Malone Body Crème in English Pear & Freesia
After showering, apply this Jo Malone body cream to take care of dry patches on your skin at home. Maggie has a big tub of it on her vanity, so you know how much she’s into it. We suggest using English Pear & Freesia if you like fruity scents. Available at Greenbelt 5.
Tom Ford Neroli Portofino Body Moisturizer
If you want a milder scent, try this body lotion from Tom Ford. This is their Neroli Portofino perfume in moisturizer form so it also smells fresh like the ocean. This will leave your skin smooth and hydrated. Available online.
