i also agree with sleep. but aside from that, i apply l’occitane foot cream & burt’s bees lemon butter cuticle cream then put socks on. after washing my hands, i apply l’occitane hand cream & the cuticle cream. my skin feels AMAZING in the morning 🙂

Just before going to bed, I apply a moisturizer on my cheekbones. Ever since I’ve been running in the morning, I feel the need for an extra bit of moisture on the dryer part of my face! I think that is the last thing I do before going to bed.

cook, believe me, there is nothing beautiful about the smell left in you and your clothes after you stir fry vegetables or cook anything.

Get more sleep, exfoliate 3 times/week, and use serum daily and nightly (Body Shop Vitamin C for AM, and Origins Skin Guardian for PM).

I smooth rosebud salve on my lips just before I fall asleep. I sometimes will rub some on my cuticles, but not every night.

After I put down my night’s reading, I grab my hand lotion and put a wack ton on for the overnight. Then the chapstick ( central heating is so dehydrating!)

I put on my hand cream with my little white gloves! It has to go last since I can’t really do anything else with them on but change television channels and sleep!

I apply my Retin-A cream. Unfortunately, I wake up with such a dry face from it.
Christine, I thought I read that you are using an acne medication – do you use it at night and are you putting on night cream after applying it? Just curious, thanks!

Hi Christine,
I’m using epidou i think it similar to differin, I’m also using cleania and finaca. one is for dark spots, the other for red. i have noticed my skin has become really dry and flakey. have you experiences any of these side effects and what moisturizer are you using for day and pm. I’m courius.

Hi Danielle,

A little bit when I first started to use it, and my doctor advised switching to every other day and building up tolerance over time. After two weeks or so, it was fine, and I’ve used a couple of moisturizers throughout. Bobbi Brown Rich Gel Moisturizer was nice, as is Osmotics Cream Extreme Barrier Repair.

I wash my hands and put on lip balm. I touch my face alot in my sleep so I make sure to wash my hands before going to bed!

It depends. I either apply lip balm, zit cream or hand cream last. I apply moisturizer and eye cream right after washing my face.

I put Retin A on right before bed. I have not been using it for about a month now, because my skin is so dry from the weather, and the retin a makes it more dry. But, when I am not off of it, that is my last beauty related product that I put on. 🙂
