Since there’s no golden formula for the perfect evening skincare routine, it takes plenty of trial and error to find one that works. But even then, you’ve got to regularly shake up your standby mix with a few new products. How else will you know if there’s something even better out there?!
To help you round out your bedtime beauty regimen, this series will highlight the cleansers, moisturizers, serums and masks our editors use before hitting the sack. Up today is our product-obsessed production assistant Sarah Ferguson’s favorite PM beauty buys. Read on for her full routine, then shop her picks in the slideshow above.
"My process begins with makeup remover. My eyes are really sensitive, so it’s not often I find one that’s non-irritating. Yes To’s Facial Towelettes have become my go-to. Every few days I like to use a mask to get rid of toxins. Right now I’m into Eve Lom’s Rescue Mask. It leaves my complexion looking even and glowy. Then I cleanse with my Clarisonic. It’s literally a life-changing tool.
Since I never get enough sleep, my next step is applying Estée Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair to make sure that no matter what, it looks like I’ve gotten my beauty rest. The last (and most crucial!) step is moisturizer. I tend to break out when I’m stressed, so if I’m not feeling particularly zen, I’ll use Kiehl’s Skin Rescuer. But on a normal day, I use Clinique Moisture Surge. My grandmother swears by it and she’s the youngest looking 85-year-old I’ve ever seen! I also always sleep with a humidifier during the colder months. My skin dries out pretty easily so I need all the extra moisture I can get!" - Sarah Ferguson, production assistant
