Morning vs. Nighttime Skin Gym Skin Care Routine

Everyone wants clear, healthy skin and knows that having a skin care routine is one of the most important aspects to achieving and maintaining our skin goals. But not everyone mentions that the day and nighttime routines aren’t the same. Skin has different needs for different times of the day. Morning skin care routines are constructed to protect your skin from everything it will encounter during the day. The focus of the evening skin care routine is centered around removing any impurities from the day, nourishing, repairing, and replenishing.

Skin Care Routine Steps

Two steps that are non-negotiable, no matter what time of the day it is are cleansing and moisturizing. But those are done with different products depending on if it’s the morning or evening. During the day, it’s not only important to protect your skin, but to make sure you don’t clog your pores. Generally, it’s a good idea to use lighter products during the day and save the heavier masks, serums, and creams for the nighttime skin care routine.

Skin Gym makes a variety of products that are optimal for use for one of your skin care routines. Below is our guide to our best tools and face products and that broken down when they should be used to make using two separate routines as easy as possible.

AM Skin Care Routine 

Cleanse with Tilka Cleansing Brush with LED – Because we generally don’t sweat while we sleep, our face only needs a gentle cleanse in the morning. A gentle cleanse also helps maintain the delicate skin barrier. The sonic vibrations and LED light helps clear any debris that might have accumulated during your slumber. Those elements also give you a radiant complexion that will shine through the next steps of your morning routine.

Under Eye Mask with Patch Hydra-Gel Rosy Hearts Eye Mask- These eye masks only take 15-20 minutes to make a huge difference in your day. If you’re tired or looking puffy, the Hyaluronic Acid, Rose Flower Oil, Collagen, Caffeine, Gold, and Amino Acids will tackle them and brighten your under-eye area. For an extra brightening boost, use one of our face rollers over the disposable eye masks while they sit.
Royal Black Diamond Face Mask- This mask is branded as giving you a “lit from within” look and it doesn’t disappoint. This mask hydrates, nourishes and brightens so it also saves you time in the morning. The mask contains a blend of Collagen, Peptides and Honey for a radiant complexion. It also has Charcoal, which is a gentle exfoliant. This mask does the work of three or four products in one step!

IceCoolie Ice Roller- We mentioned puffy eyes with the Patch Hydra-Gel Rosy Hearts Eye Mask and this roller combats that problem for the rest of your face, neck and decolletage. It’s the perfect last step for your morning skin care routine whether you decide to put on makeup or not. You probably won’t even need it! 

PM Skin Care Routine

Cleania Sonic Cleansing Brush- This brush is the ultimate cleansing hack for your nighttime skin routine. It will remove any dirt or grime that encountered your face. The spin brush has 3 adjustable speeds to deep clean, exfoliate, and massage your skin. It also has 3 mix and match brush heads so you can customize the head for your specific needs each night.
24K Golden Glow Face Mask- This face mask is full of the best ingredients to restore your skin while you sleep. Not only does is have Collagen and Hyaluronic Acid, it also contains Retinol and Bakuchiol (which should only be used at night) to aid in anti-aging. This mask restores “youthful radiance” to skin in 20-30 minutes regardless of your age.
Moisturizer- If your skin is feeling dehydrated, you might want to add an extra moisturizer after your mask before the Signature Facial Oil.
Signature Face Oil- This step will seal in all the moisture and hydration you applied to your skin in previous steps. The super-power blend of oils also moisturizes, smooths, and has exfoliating abilities. Not only do the ingredients care for your skin, but it’s also the perfect base to use for your favorite beauty tool, whether that’s a facial roller or Gua Sha.
Jade Facial Roller- The face oil from the previous step will help the jade roller easily glide over your face. It helps relieve facial tension before you sleep. The mini massage is aided by the jade stone which promotes harmony and relaxation to help get you and your face in the mood for sleep.

There’s a method to the madness and order of these skincare routine suggestions. These products are curated to ensure that your skin is cleansed, moisturized and the right vitamins and nutrients to keep it clear and facilitate anti-aging.  

Additional Products to Add to Your Skin Care Routine

  • SPF- This is the very last step and last thing you apply during your morning skin care routine. Even if it’s cloudy outside or you’ll be staying inside most of the day, you must put on SPF! You will still be exposed you UV rays. A 30+ Broadspectrum sunscreen offers the most protection but choose the formula and texture you prefer.
  • Exfoliator- Depending on how dry or sensitive your skin is, a separate exfoliant like a scrub or a gel can help get rid of dead skin cells and help replenish that radiant glow.
