Desi Perkins’ Nighttime Skincare Routine | Go To Bed With Me | Harper’s BAZAAR
Come on, let’s get unready.
Okay, so this is what I like to call
The Transformation Station
’cause we’re about to transform.
First, I gotta put my hair up
so I like to use this silky scrunchie
because it is
the best for your hair.
Alright, so now we have our hair up.
I am going to take off my lashes.
So these are my House of Lashes Iconic Lites
and I love them so I need to find a semi safe
spot to put them
so that Steven later thinks their spiders.
I love that.
Next, I want to remove any
eye makeup that I have, mascara, any of that stuff
and I like to use the Neutrogena
oil free makeup remover.
So I like to just press it into
and gently rub back and forth
to remove all the mascara and eye makeup we have going on
If I was wearing
gel liner, glitter, all of that,
I would be going through many of these but
because I’m not wearing too much today
I’m kind of just worried about mascara.
I’m just gonna give it one more go
just to make sure we’re really
all the way gone.
These are actually silk pads
because I have a cotton phobia
It’s very strange I know.
Alright, we are good.
I like double cleansing.
I love oil cleansers.
It just breaks up all the foundation
and I got a lot of it on right now.
So I love to use the
Tatcha Pure One Step Cleansing Oil.
This stuff is just going to break everything down
and you want to make sure to use it
with no water.
It breaks everything up better when it’s used dry.
I always love to pull the skin upwards
because gravity is already helping pull it down
and we don’t want that so
I always use that rule with all my skin products.
Now I’m gonna grab a wash cloth, a damp wash cloth.
use a little bit of warm water.
I like to use a nice warm wash cloth
’cause it’s gonna open all of your pores
and get it ready for all the other skin products your’re about to apply.
Get that hairline you guys, get the hairline.
Do not forget, because I know
we all push brozer up into our hairline
and that’s where most of the makeup gets left behind
and your ears.
I’m pretty sure I still have makeup on.
Even when you think
that you took all your makeup off
that’s a lie.
Now after the oil cleansing
you want to double cleanse, that’s what I like to do.
This is the Sanitas Lemon Cream Cleanser
I like to use it with this exfoliating pad
Now I’m just gonna take this in gentle circular motions
I’m going to apply this face wash – ugh smells so good.
Such a nice scent.
I really just like this exfoliating pad
much more than
any face wash with those little microbeads
I just feel like
they might get into my pores or cut, like micro cuts
in my skin because some are so abrasive.
So I just like this, I have control
over how much pressure
You always gotta remember the neck.
Definitely something that will
tell your age once you
get to that point in your life.
When I was younger my mom would tell me that
and I was like, “Okay, mom. Whatever.”
Now, I get it.
And you don’t really start to get it until
you see some things happening and then you
You know, one of those.
So much water is going down my robe right now.
Clean wash cloth
Pat dry people.
You don’t want to rub.
or tug your skin because
that causes rwrinkles and we don’t want that.
Okay so now
I did not use toner, I felt like it was
one of those products I didn’t really need
and then I started using it
and it’s amazing.
not only does it control your oils
if you have oily skin,
it also helps with breakouts.
But when I see the toner
pad after I apply it,
The amount of makeup leftover on my face
I was shook.
Ready for this; clean.
But it will have makeup on it, I promise you.
Oh yeah, there we go.
I love especially applying this
over where I have breakouts. Listen.
Right now, I have some things going on
and that’s fine, it happens to the best of us
so especially right here, I’ll just
press it into those breakouts.
I actually discovered this product on accident once.
I sent my husband out for a spot treatment
for my breakouts and he brought a toner and I was like
“What is this? This is not what I use for breakouts.”
But it ended up
saving my skin so its pretty insane.
and I’ve been using it ever since now.
Do you see this?
This is what I was sleeping with after I used
makeup wipes, all these years.
I didn’t know.
Now you know.
Just gotta let it dry, make sure the toner
sets into the skin before you move on.
So listen, I am latina
so I tend with my skin tone to get hyper-pigmentation
all of that.
I started using these brightening peel pads.
They also help
with the appearance of pores and
fine lines, wrinkles.
Just all of that, all of the good stuff.
These pads do, they’re life changing.
Alright so you take the pad,
and just run it lightly along the skin
sometimes it does
have a tingly feeling.
That’s because it’s working.
It’s killing everything.
I always notice a huge difference
when I start to use these
with my texture in my skin.
it helps with texture.
I had a bunch of little bumps
and they went away with
these peel pads
and also, every time I have
spots, I always focus the pad
in that area and it really helps brighten
and lighten them a lot quicker
I use these every night, I use one every night.
Unless I feel like
my skin is doing really well
and then maybe I’ll skip a couple nights.
You know when you’re feeling yourself
and you’re like “Wow, my skins doing so good.
I’m gonna skip some stuff.”
and then the next day your skin
Just go up the neck too, let’s not forget.
Okay, now it’s time for a face oil.
I love face oils.
They just make you feel so hydrated.
and I know a lot of people with oily skin
get nervous about face oils.
they actually help oily skin
so I enjoy them.
This one in particular is
the luxury face oil from drunk elephant.
I recently started using this.
And it has just
nice healing properties so especially if you
picked at your skin which I definitely don’t do
This stuff has healing properties and
and it’s just so hydrating.
So I just use a couple of drops of this.
and I press it into my skin.
Just like a little mini facial.
And it makes you look like a dewy dumpling.
Tip: I love to
drench my skin with this oil
before a flight.
It is the best, you’ll arrive
so glowy and so hydrated.
It’s like this perfect barrier between the airplane
air and your skin.
So lastly for the creams, I’m gonna
apply my nighttime cream.
This one I only use at night because
it has a lot of ingredients
That you don’t really want to be
using in the sun
My facialist told me to use this.
She says it’s one of the best
so that’s why I use it, that’s the real reason.
So now I’m gonna pat this into the skin.
I do know that it has
a lot of good stuff in here
for skin texture, fine lines.
And this is good for every night, this is your night cream.
It does all this work while you’re sleeping.
You don’t have to do anything, you just lay there
and it’s whats working for you so.
Take it on the neck.
I would like for that to be resurfaces as well.
Always listen to your mom,
let me tell you.
These are awesome.
They have a multi-purpose for me.
So these are Peace Out acne healing dots.
And what I love about these is that you can just
place them on your breakouts and
they don’t move because theyre sticky
and on top of that, they’re like a skin tone
so it disguises your pimples too.
So when you go lay down next to your husband at night
he’s not like, “Woah.
What’s going on?”
I mean, not that I care. I’m always looking crazy,
Sheet masks, face masks.
So we’re just gonna go crazy here.
We have some issues happening.
So look, boom.
Do you see that?
You don’t see it anymore, do you?
Now we are gonna go ahead and plop it on that one.
And now I’m just gonna put this one here.
I’m feeling pretty good about that.
I mean, I have a little redness but that’s good.
So we’re gonna move on.
Now it’s time for chapstick.
Don’t forget your lips, it’s very important.
You don’t want to wake up with them looking all dry and
tales of the cript like, you know what I mean?
This is actually from Christian Dior, the creme de rose.
I recently found out they discontinued this.
I’m still gonna use it because
it’s everything to me
but I’m just letting you know, Dior
you should’ve kept this product, it’s incredible.
Alright, that’s it. That is my full
Thank you guys so much for hanging out with me
and I will see you soon.
I’m done, it’s all yours. Go ahead.
I’ll show you guys my routine.
