Night-time routine

Like most people I have a separate evening skincare routine. Before I go to bed I like to take the day off my face completely, repair my skin's moisture overnight and try to prevent any nasty blemishes appearing. Occasionally I like to leave a hair mask on my hair overnight and fake tan before bed then wash them off in the morning.

Etat Pur Citric Acid, Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate, Skinetica Anti Blemish Liquid

These products are great for protecting the skin overnight and helping spots to clear up. I like to alternate between them as it would be too much product to use on my face all at once! The first is Etat Pur's Citric Acid concentrate. The main purpose of this product is to brighten the skin and restore radiance but the citric acid in it helps to clear up spots too! This is very concentrated and can only be applied in the evenings, I pop 4 drops on my face then follow with a moisturiser so my skin doesn't dry out and my spots have cleared up in the morning.

Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate is another favourite of mine. I have reviewed and posted about it so many times it doesn't need much description but this is an ideal product specifically for night time use. The next product is Skinetica, I received this in my goodie bag at the Birmingham Blogger Meet Up recently and had never heard of it before. I've done a bit of research on it and it seems to be a favourite among bloggers. I haven't been using it much so it hasn't made a huge difference to my skin - you need to use it twice daily to see the results - but once I incorporate into my routine hopefully my skin will be a lot clearer!

Hair and Body:
Vita Liberta Tinted Self Tan Gel, Bed Head 'Dumb Blonde' Leave-In Conditioner
Every now and then I like to apply fake tan. I find it a lot easier to put it on before bed then wash the layer of colour off in the morning rather than putting it on in the morning and getting tan all over my clothes. Recently I've been using this gel by Vita Liberta and love it. It's tinted so easy to see where you've applied and leaves a really healthy looking natural colour. I think the tinted colour has a bit of a red tinge to it so it's definitely better to wash it off!

Once a week I also cover my hair in a hair mask or leave in conditioner and wash it off in the morning. I've been using the Dumb Blonde leave-in conditioner by Bed Head and it makes my hair so silky and keeps the colour bright.

Clean & Clear spot treatment gel, Good Things Bright Eyes Cream, Nivea Soothe & Protect lip balm
I also like to cover my lips in lip balm every night and apply eye cream to keep them looking refreshed and heal any spots with my Clean & Clear gel. I haven't noticed much of a difference to the appearance of my eye area since using this Good Things cream but it has definitely made the skin around it a lot softer and smoother.

Do you use different products in the evenings? Have you tried any of these?
