My nighttime skincare routine isn’t as complex as, say, the 10-step Korean skincare routine, but it’s close. I cleanse – or double-cleanse, if I’ve worn makeup – and then apply a sheet mask or my serums, prescription acne medication, moisturizer, eye cream, facial oil, and lip balm. It’s rigorous, but worth it; my skin has been clear and glowing almost every day since I moved to California.
I’ve been loving going makeup-free since I spend so much time at the yoga studio and the beach, but it means that I’m focusing on skincare even more than before. Los Angeles is a city with an insane amount of pollution, which contributes to skin aging almost as much as time spent in the sun. Luckily, Caudalie’s new Vine[Activ] Overnight Detox Night Oil is formulated to combat all of those external aggressors while hydrating and nourishing your face. It’s a face oil, but it’s so much more. It’s a detoxifying anti-pollution treatment.
The 100% plant-based oil is free of parabens, sulfates, and phthalates, and made with about a million different good kinds of oils to nourish your skin, including grapeseed, carrot, lavender, and sandalwood.
After just one night, I had glowier, healthier skin the following morning. It’s working on my little fine lines and my uneven skin tone, and keeping my skin safe from all the pollution in Los Angeles.
