You get dolled up just to take it all off before bedtime. And if you aren’t in the habit of removing makeup and taking care of your skin at the end of the day, you could be cursed with a red, irritated complexion come morning. To make it fool-proof and excuse-free, I’ve found a couple easy-to-use beauty products that will keep you looking clean, fresh and all-natural with the swipe of your fingers.
These aren’t your average makeup-removing wipes. Giovanni has created gentle-on-skin blankets of goodness infused with aloe vera and Echinacea to help calm skin. I keep a stash in our living room to wipe my skin clean when we’re just chill-axin’ watching TV at night. I still wash my face before going to bed, because no cleansing towelette is going to get that deep into pores to clear out all your makeup, oil and grime from the day. Sorry, but it’s true.
After cleansing your skin, the obvious next-step is moisturizing. I’ve recently rediscovered my love for aloe vera as a hydrating must-have. Living in California, aloe has always been a favorite for me to help speed up sunburn recovery. But I had forgotten how great it is at leaving my skin soft and more even-toned when I apply it at night. Aloe Life Skin Gel is the purest aloe vera you can find (aside from growing your own plant). It’s called “Life Skin” for a reason. You can use this for so many skin ailments, from sunburns to stretch marks to unsightly blemishes.
