Night Skincare Routine: A Step-By-Step Guide

We’ll be the first to admit that nighttime is downtime. The last thing anyone wants to do is spend half an hour cleansing, moisturizing, and treating your skin when what you want is to unwind. 

Not to worry, here at Furtuna Skin, we love an uncomplicated, effective process. That’s why we’re here to share our favorite nighttime skincare routine tips and tricks. 

The result? In just a few minutes per evening, you can give your skin the ingredients it needs to help repair, restore, and rejuvenate overnight so that you wake up to healthier, more radiant skin. 

What Is a Night Skincare Routine?

Everyone has a night skincare routine, even if you don’t do anything but use makeup remover. Skincare products created for nighttime use usually contain ingredients like hyaluronic acid, peptides, or niacinamide that help your skin do what it does best: repair and replenish itself while you sleep. 

No matter your skin type, your skin cells regenerate more overnight, and giving them the right active ingredients to ease fine lines, even out skin tone, and eliminate breakouts can help you have healthier skin. 

Establishing a night skincare routine can set you up for a lifetime of healthier,  happier skin, and it doesn’t require a lot of products or excessive amounts of time to get the job done. 

How Is a Night Skincare Routine Different From a Morning Skincare Routine?

Normally, it has to do with ingredients and treatments. In the morning, your skincare routine may consist of a cleanser, toner, moisturizing lotion, and an SPF 30 sunscreen. At night, your skincare routine will focus less on UV rays and pollution protection and more on addressing the damage your skin has already undergone from exposure to these external stressors. 

You might also be using a facial cleanser that helps break down makeup, and you’ll probably use an eye cream to target specific concerns in the eye area. Additionally, you’ll want to amp up the youth-boosting ingredients to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. 

Do You Need Both a Night and Day Skincare Routine?

We say absolutely! Your skin barrier, the uppermost layer of your skin, needs antioxidant protection by day and products that provide hydration. 

At night, your skin needs powerful ingredients to help ease dark circles, minimize the look of dark spots, and support proper cell turnover and collagen production. Your daytime and nighttime skincare routines should work harmoniously for brightening, nourishing, and protective skin benefits. 

What Are Some Important Night Skincare Routine Steps?

Want a skincare routine for nighttime that won’t leave you fatigued? We’ve got you covered. This five-step process takes just a few minutes and can help alleviate some of the most common skin concerns like dryness, puffiness, fine lines, and wrinkles. 

1. Remove 

Harsh, exfoliating face washes can irritate your skin and create more work for your skin to repair overnight. Instead, switch to a gentle cleansing oil or micellar water that supports your skin’s wellness. Micellar water is infused with tiny beads of oil that can help remove dead skin cells and impurities without stripping the skin of natural moisture.

Furtuna Skin Micellar Cleansing Essence contains olive-infused micelles that effectively double-cleanse your skin when used with a cotton pad. There’s no need to rinse; the cleansing essence is safe to leave on your skin to help hydrate it. It also acts as a toner and essence, helping tighten pores and clarify blemish-prone skin.

The best part? Our incredibly gentle cleanser is safe for all skin types, including oily skin and sensitive skin.  

2. Refresh

Your regular vitamin C serum simply can’t compare to the wild botanicals in our Face and Eye Serum. Our serum does double duty, working as a hydrating serum for dry skin while also performing a balancing act for combination skin, acne-prone skin, and oily skin types. 

Loaded with wild, organic chicory that visibly lifts the skin and organic olive oil with rich fatty acids to combat the signs of aging, it’s a product you’ll want to include in your morning and evening skincare regimen. 

3. Recalibrate

Skin can easily become unbalanced. Harsh products or spot treatments can strip it of moisture, disrupt its natural pH balance, and cause irritation. Furtuna Skin’s Nightly Renewal Cream helps support your skin’s natural rhythm. 

Our proprietary Circadian Rhythm Complex contains wild foraged plant botanicals that work synergistically with your skin to help it sync and repair. Our night cream is rich with bakuchiol, a natural alternative to retinol. 

Retinoids can help support healthy cell turnover, but they can also cause peeling, dryness, and irritation. Bakuchiol delivers the same benefits without any of the harsh side effects. 

4. Replenish

There’s no better time to help your skin repair and restore than just before bed. Furtuna Skin’s Replenishing Balm is the perfect last step in any nighttime skincare routine. 

Placed on top of our night cream, it works simultaneously to fight puffiness, dark spots, and signs of aging while you sleep. It’s loaded with our single-source, award-winning, organic extra-virgin olive oil to help soothe irritation, deeply hydrate, and bring illumination to dull skin. 

5. Extra Credit

Want to stimulate your lymph nodes and help support circulation in your skin with one final step? Apply your Replenishing Balm with our obsidian gua sha. Not only will you enjoy the cool, smooth feel of facial stimulation, but you’ll also help rid your skin of toxins, increase circulation, and help your products penetrate more deeply. 

It’s a great way to destress and practice essential self-care in one easy step.
