I would never go to bed without…

…cleansing. There is no better feeling than getting home and putting your hair in a bun and washing your face. I also love using an active treatment as I always feel like I wake up looking my best.

I always double cleanse if I am wearing makeup or SPF. Double cleansing is washing your face once to remove makeup, SPF and dirt, I like to use a balm for this. I then go in with a cream, gel or lotion cleanser, or sometimes a balm twice, to actually clean my skin.

I tend to keep my routine steps the same…

…I cleanse, mist, eye cream, treatment (such as retinoid or an acid serum), moisturise or oil if needed. I do tend to change my treatment step, as I use Skin Rocks Retinoid 2 every other night. On the ‘other’ nights, I’ll use a hydrating serum, or something with specific peptides to target my skin depending on how my skin is feeling.

How I incorporate Skin Rock Retinoids Into My Routine

I use Skin Rocks Retinoid 2 every other night. Double cleanse, use a hydrating mist and then I apply my retinoid, wait 25 minutes or so and then I use my eye cream and moisturiser or oil depending on what I feel my skin needs.

The Skin Rocks Retinoids are brilliant treatments that are suitable for all skin types that boost skin clarity and promote a smooth, even, radiant complexion. Opt for Skin Rocks Retinoid 1 if you are new to retinoids or you have previously found retinoids to be too strong. Or, if you have recently completed a prescription-strength retinoid course and want to maintain results, Retinoid 2 is for you. I use Retinoid 2 to improve the look of my pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles and to make my skin look and feel it’s best.

My top tip for building a good evening skincare routine…

…get the basics right. Find a cleanser that removes makeup and SPF (I prefer a balm or oil), find a cleanser that cleans your skin and leaves it feeling comfortable and then use a moisturiser suited to your skin type. The treatment step can then be added in depending on what your skin needs.
