Model Emily DiDonato’s Nighttime Skincare Routine | Go To Bed With Me | Harper’s BAZAAR
(upbeat music) – Let’s get ready for bed. So the first thing I’m going to do is put up my hair. I really like using a scrunchie at night because sometimes I like to preserve my hairstyle from the day or something like that.
So, I use a scrunchie which is old school but I like it. So the next thing I’m going to do is wash my face. I love using the Drunk Elephant Jelly Cleanser. I start with this and this actually tends to take off all of my makeup and kind of dirt from the day which I like.
I kind of am lazy at night when I get home, and I kind of just wanna do one step to get everything off and this tends to do the trick. Another thing I always do is I always rinse with cold water. When I rinse with hot water, it tends to make your face more red and flushed which is something you definitely don’t want.
So, cold water is always better. So as you can see, that did a pretty good job of taking everything off which I definitely love. My face is clean, so that’s good. If I don’t get all of my makeup off, that is when I’ll go in with a makeup remover and kind of go in there but I do tend to try to stay away from makeup removers only because I don’t like to tug at my skin with these cloths.
I just don’t think it helps so it looks good the next day. So I try to stay away from that. But if I need to, I’ll do it. The next step that I do if my skin is feeling particularly dry or if I have some flaking skin, which sometimes happens, I will do a mask which I’m not gonna do right now ’cause I think I’m okay.
I’ll do the Summer Fridays Overtime Mask, the exfoliant one. I love this one because it has vitamin C in it and, basically, it smells like pumpkin pie which is awesome and it just makes my skin really smooth, really soft, and really glowy so if I need that extra exfoliation I’ll use this.
What I’ll do next is my Tretinoin Cream. This is actually a prescription that I got from my dermatologist. I think when I turned 24 or 25 I asked my dermatologist what am I supposed to be doing? I feel like I should be doing things to make my skin better, I’m getting older and she recommended this but this is actually for acne treatment which is just bonus points for me, but I actually use it for anti-aging.
So Tretinoin is actually the prescription version of Retinol. Retinol you can get over the counter and it’s in a lot of creams and cosmetics and stuff like that, Beware, this will make your skin very dry, so I will only do this two to three times a week and after I use it I have to layer on a lot of moisturizing products, but this has helped me, I think, with fine lines and wrinkles, shrunk my pores a bit.
I’m into it, so I do this next. So I just put this on in a thin layer. Try to keep it away from the eyes, and I also bring it down to my neck because your neck needs love too. Now that I’ve applied that, what I like to do next is go into moisturizing.
So I can already feel that this a little dry, my face needs some love. So rosehip oil is amazing ’cause it’s really moisturizing and it has a ton of vitamin C in it and this is also just pure vitamin C in here.
This is like my little vitamin C cocktail which I love. Vitamin C is amazing ’cause it helps brighten the skin, it helps even out skin tone, it helps with fine lines and wrinkles. It’s awesome and such a multitasking ingredient which is what I love about it.
So I literally just put it in my hand like that, and then I take the vitamin C serum. I don’t know if you can see it, but it’s literally orange-y. I try to do upward strokes just because I feel I like I don’t want to be tugging my skin down, so I always try to apply my skincare in an upward motion.
I also think that vitamin C serum really helps with dark circles and just in general I feel like it really helps with pigmentation and helps even out skin tone which is another reason why I really like it.
So now that, that is all rubbed in and it already feels great, I feel like I’m getting hydrated here. I’m gonna mix this hyaluronic acid with this moisturizer here. This just really helps with moisturizing in general and I just think it’s a great boost.
Then this moisturizer. I really like both of these together because I feel like it really helps seal in all of the moisture. So the moisturizer is Life Plankton, it’s a sensitive emulsion, has a really great smell but also Life Plankton, it sounds like Plankton from the ocean but it’s actually not.
It comes from a spring in France that apparently it’s really good for your skin and women back in the Middle Ages were going to this spring to get this specific ingredient for their skin. So after all of that I’m gonna put a little bit of lip balm on, this is Maybelline Baby Lips.
I have this in every single purse. This is also another product that I feel like I would want on a deserted island, like chapped lips is no good. So I always put this on at night, I have it in my nightstand, always just use that.
So the next thing I’m going to do is gonna give my brows and my lashes a little bit of love. I have mentioned this on my YouTube channel as well, but I am trying to get my eyebrows sand my eyelashes to grow so badly.
I’m really trying to do this every single night so I put castor oil, which I got this at Whole Foods, you can kind of get it anywhere, on my lashes and my brows. I just take a Q-tip and I dip it in. And I kind of press it into my brows and I actually do think that this has made a difference particularly with my eyelashes which is exciting but I just really want that energy to transfer to my brows, but that is yet to happen.
I wanna wake up with eyebrows like Cara Delevingne, like that’s just a dream of mine but I don’t think that’s gonna happen, but here’s to trying. And I put it on my lash line as well. For my final step I am breaking out a little bit right now in my chin area so something that I like to do is add a little bit of tea tree oil to some spots that I see are breaking out.
It does also make your skin a little bit dry, but it is great sometimes if you are breaking out somewhere or if I do have a specific spot ’cause it kind of just dries out that area. So I’m just gonna apply this to my chin area ’cause I am breaking out a little bit here.
So that is my final step. That is my full bedtime, nighttime skincare routine. So it’s time to go to bed. Thank you guys for watching. (upbeat music)
