Question: Do you reapply skincare products before bed?

Sep25

Hi ladies of the Nutt House (",)

 

I have a question which has been bugging me and I wanna hear from you ladies.


I usually return home at about 7pm and after showering, I put on my skincare products.  I go to sleep slightly before 12 midnight and between the time i last put on my skincare products and the time that i go to bed, there's a span of about 5 hours.  Before I head to bed, I usually wash my face with water  and reapply my skincare products.

I'm wondering if this is necessary.

Do you ladies reapply your skincare products before bedtime or do you just go to bed?

Ok. i totally know what you mean, it's like all the skincare prdts have worn oo bed. by the time you go to bed, well, i take the lazy girl's way out, which is -----
if i get home 3ish, i will shower -- but i dont use any skincare after cleaning my face, so by night time, i will usually shower again or at least wash my face, it's only then that i apply my face cream etc etc

if i get home 7ish or later, i will only wash up before i go to bed, so i don't have that 'gap' when i feel like my skincare has worn off by the time i go to bed.

most of the time, i would usually bath before i go sleep. so i'll apply skincare stuffs before sleep. haha coz once i get home, i'll be stuck in front of computer..

(Sara here! Gltich again.. pfft)

Anyway, for me I don't apply anything save for the Hada Labo toner after I shower, just so I moisturize my face. I have about a 5-6 hour time between bathing and bedtime too. Before I go to bed, I wash my face and it's after that that I apply the full skincare routine.

hihi Mellymellypoo :) Thanks for stopping by Hazelnutt House :)
There are times when i grudgingly reapply just coz i am so tired and want to jump straight into bed :)

hihi Haneyaynie :) I used to be like u before i had a kid. Hang around in front of the comp till it's time to shower :) Now i shower right after i return so i can carry the baby.

Oh I get what you mean. I usually just wash my face with my cleanser only when I take a shower after I come back home. I know I should continue with my other skincare products, but my face usually gets oily within a few hours, so I just wash my face again and do the rest of my skincare routine before I sleep.

Good question btw! :)

hi CHantana :) there are times when I am simply too tired and just head to bed :)

Hi 'NurAtiqa' :) sigh... i do hope the glitch problem gets settled soon! Oh, i do the 'hada labo way' too on days when I am lazy :) and only do the full routine at bedtime :)

Hi Daphne :) if i do not apply anything after I shower, my skin feels really dry - could be due to aging.
I think applying skincare products after shower and again before bedtime helps me to use up my products faster! Muah hahah!!! I am very 'ON' when i wanna finish using my current products :)

After my evening shower, i just apply whatever i need for the night. If my face feels oily before i go to bed, as i am too lazy to wash my face again, i would just clean my face with a refreshing toner.

I don't reapply, haha because I never have the habit of applying skincare products after shower. I only put moisturizer :) I only apply my skincare products before bed.

its so interesting reading other's before bedtime face routine! For me, i always cant wait to wash my face once i reach home den followed by my toner and moisturizer. But i never have the habit of reapplying :x
And i dun really like washing my face more than 2 times a day in fear of tripping the natural oils away. I have combination skin, so i get oily and really patchy skin in some area.

Hi Heavenlygorgeous :) Hi 5!

Hi Michelle :) I think age has caught up with me, if I do not apply moisturiser after shower, the skin on my face will be really dry.

hi Gwen :) Yeah, the first thing i do when i get home is to shower, but if i can't, i'll definitely wash my face too :)

I will reapply =) I read from a article that it is very important to apply skincare routine befor going to bed as that is the time the skin is most active =) Upon reading that article I will always wash my face again and reapply skincare product =)

i read somewhere that is good to give skin some "breathing" time so usually after i shower at about 7pm i don't put anything on my face until just before i go to bed :P

Haha. After shower, I spray Avene's Thermal Water on my face. Before I bought Avene, I just applied Hazeline Snow. Before bed, I brush my teeth and that's when my night skincare routine begins. (:

hihi Farrahdiba :) When i was using the Dr. Hauschka range of products, they actually advocate not using anything at night! Just spritz on their toner and that's it. I tried this method for a month and found that I really do need some form of moisturiser before bed. I agree with your 'breathing' time for skin, so sometimes, i will 'tahan' for as long as i can without moisturising after shower.

Hi Charlene :) U just reminded me of Hazeline Snow :) I will repurchase this lil' jar of 'snow' on and off :)

If I return home at 7pm and shower, I will put on obligatory moisturizer or nothing, because from then till the time I sleep (perhaps 12am), even though I am home and not out, there will be dirt and facial oil on my face. So just before bed at 12am, I will clean face just with toner to take away the dirt, then proceed with full works like sheet mask, then moisturizer and eye cream before I head to bed.
