Rule #1: ALWAYS wash off your makeup. Yes, even after one too many glasses of red wine during your Bachelor in Paradise viewing party.
Besides that one universal rule that all ladies should follow (and applying sunscreen as part of your morning makeup routine) every nighttime routine is different. From the type of cleanser you use, to the brand of toner or moisturizer, every woman’s skin is different. And that’s the beauty of it.
So this week, we’re looking to Boston green beauty experts, Follain, for the perfect products for your updated getting-ready-for-bed routine.
Bonus: They’re all super eco-friendly.
Double bonus: You can purchase it all with your Giftbar beauty gift cards.
Bonus squared: Guilt free all around.
You lucky, lucky dogs, you. The beauty of normal skin is that you can pretty much try out any product under the sun to see which works best for your genetically blessed skin type. Because besides the occasional breakout (either from that time of the month or last week’s Ben & Jerry’s binge… Or both, most likely), your skin tends to stay on the calm, cool and collected side. #weaintjealous #yesweare

On the flip side, oily skin girls are singing some serious praise now that the summer heat is dying down — naturally oily skin + sweaty temps + not enough blotting tissue = level 4 disaster. BUT, that doesn’t mean we can ditch our nighttime routine products altogether. Quite the opposite, ladies. To control next year’s oily face fiasco, sticking to an effective beauty routine is key.
