My natural evening skincare routine.

My bedtime skincare routine is one of the favourite parts of the day, it's the time when you can completely relax after a long day at work. You take your make up off and dedicate some special time just for yourself.
Only a few weeks ago I spent a few days in Rome visiting my family and friends, and I was completely astonished by the amount of young women in their 30's not having a skincare routine or dedicating enough attention to their skin because of lack of time and interest.

Personally in the last few years I have seen my skin changing so much that for me it's impossible not to dedicate some attention to it. Here is a breakdown of the products I use:

Starting with my eyes, after removing my makeup and cleansing my face, it's a must for me applying some eye cream before I go to sleep. I have always had very sensitive skin, especially around the eye area and unfortunately eye bags and dark circles have been keeping me company since I was young (how sweet of them). For this reason I dedicate special attention to the eye cream I choose. I have been in love for months with the Pai Echium and Argan Gentle Eye Cream (you can read my review here ) but not too long ago I decided to have a change and try the Origins GinZing refreshing eye cream which I really really like.
This has a lovely light texture with a light peachy colour that helps to reduce the look of dark circles and also depuff and restore the radiance to your tired eyes. It is suggested to apply this eye cream in the morning but I like to use it at night as well before going to sleep.

After taking care of my eyes, I like to dedicate special attention to the entire face.  For this I use Arbonne RE9 Advanced Night Repair Crème*. I believe I have never used a better night cream. It has an absolutely fantastic texture, creamy but not too heavy that gets absorbed very very quickly into your skin without leaving it oily or greasy. 
This night cream has a mix of natural ingredients and concentrated Vitamin C that helps to support your skin collagen and repair your skin. My face feels so elastic and regenerating after using it.

A step that I can't miss in my skincare routine is taking care of my hands. I was given as a present from my brother  The Body Shop Almond and Nail hand cream and now I just can't get enough.
It has a sweet lovely fragrance and contains two really important ingredients, sweet almond oil and panthenol that help to maintain a smooth and soft feel to your hands.

Last but not least in my skincare routine is keeping my lips hydrated and smooth. For this I use the Trilogy rosehip oil lip balm* . It's an ultra moisturising lip balm that  keeps your lips soft and hydrated through to the morning. A big plus for me is that I love using rose scent skincare products before I go to sleep, they really help me to relax.

So as you can see I have been loving every product of my evening skincare routine and I really can't recommend enough every single one.
