10-step skincare routine, a time-honored tradition with an end-goal of achieving a healthy, youthful, luminous complexion. But at the end of a long day, sometimes this regimen might feel more like a chore than like self-care. If you’re looking for an abbreviated version that still delivers all the skincare and self-caring benefits, try our simplified 5-step nighttime routine!

Steps # 1 and #2:     

Double-Cleanse: This face-washing ritual not only washes off daily grime more effectively, it also preps skin to better soak in the products and ingredients applied in other steps! Double cleansing is considered the most important steps, regardless of which regimen you use.

First, use an oil-based cleanser (no more harsh makeup wipes!), which emulsifies to gently melt away makeup, leftover SPF, and other impurities, while preserving your skin’s natural moisture.

Our NOURISH Oil Cleanser leaves skin feeling clean and replenished with a super-emollient blend of Apricot Kernel Oil, Olive Oil, Grapeseed Oil, and Argan Oil, and other more essential oils. Your skin and soul will love how this first step helps melt the day away.

Next, use a water-based cleanser to rinse off any residual oil cleanser and impurities remaining on your skin’s surface.

Our REFRESH Jade Purifying Cleanser takes detoxifying a step further with the unique abilities of Jade+Water, a high-alkaline water filtered through the fine White Jade stratum deep within the mountains of Korea. It also providing a balancing pH of 5.4, and moisturizes and strengthens your skin barrier with ingredients including Ceramides, Green Tea, Propolis, and Korean Angelica. You can even cleanse with it in the morning (you might become obsessed with its deliciously fresh scent!).

Step #3:                      

Exfoliate: Now that you’ve cleansed and prepped for the next step, exfoliating 1-3 times a week will help sweep away dead skin build-up, smooth skin texture, clear pores, and also boost clarity.

Our GLOW Exfoliating Soft Peel combines the best of physical and chemical exfoliating with Papaya Fruit enzymes and plant-based Microcrystalline Cellulose to gently dissolve and buff your skin, plus Sodium Hyaluronate, Lipidure® PMB, and the amino acid Arginine for plump, supple skin and Licorice Root to brighten your complexion. Get ready to see those dead skin cells roll off (it’s so gratifying).

Step # 4:                     

Sheet Mask (with the option of a Facial Roller): Once you “peel to reveal” super-soft skin, try sheet masking.  Not only is your skin perfectly primed to soak up a concentrated dose of the serum the sheet mask delivers, it’s the perfect opportunity to treat yourself with a Facial Roller – this part is optional but it helps smooth in product with a relaxing, skin-lifting face massage. And, you can switch up your mask game each night to address different skin concerns like anti-aging, brightening, and soothing.

Step #5:                      

Moisturize: You’ve cleansed (twice!), exfoliated, and sheet masked – now it’s time to seal in all the benefits while protecting your natural skin barrier with an enriched moisturizer.  Our new RESTORE Propolis Collagen Gel feels lightweight and silky on your skin, and deeply moisturizes while also erasing fine lines, boosting elasticity and collagen, reducing inflammation, and fading age spots and discoloration – it’s enriched with a hydrating and anti-aging blend of Propolis, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Sea Buckthorn, Vitamin Tree Water, Niacinamide, Licorice Root, Mulberry Bark, Houttuynia Cordata, Green Tea, and Honey.

Although this nighttime skincare routine includes five simple steps, it will bring you closer to the healthy, soft, luminous skin you crave. Try it tonight or any night!
