Unwind and Refresh: 'Get Unready With Me' Nighttime Skincare Routine

We've all been there. You're just getting home from a night out with your girls, happy to kick off your heels and change into your comfy clothes. But then you remember... you have to wash your makeup off. Just as important as getting ready for your night out was, it's equally as important to get unready after.

It's a chance to cleanse away the day, giving your skin its well-deserved refresh. Your skin needs its beauty sleep too, and not having the right nighttime routine can stand in the way of that.

The Importance of Removing Makeup Before Bed

Going to bed without properly getting unready is a common mistake that can lead to various skin problems like clogged pores, pimples, and damage to skin texture. Combine this with the fact that your skin repairs itself overnight, and it is easy to see that going to bed without properly washing off your makeup can disrupt this process.

Moreover, our eyes are also the most sensitive to the fallout of eyeliners and mascaras. Not properly removing eye makeup can dry out and irritate your eyes, causing infection, conjunctivitis, or the formation of styes.

Taking the time to get unready is an essential step in your skincare routine, enhancing the natural beauty of your skin. Your skin will be more than thankful, and you'll wake up with a clear, fresh face ready to take on whatever the day entails. Washing off this layer of the day can seem like a chore, but with the right products and routine, it can be turned into a ritual of self-care. You might even find yourself looking forward to this refreshing and skin-loving ‘Get Unready With Me’ routine.

Effective Makeup Removal Techniques 

Oil-Based Solutions

Contrary to popular belief, oil isn't your skin's enemy. In fact, oil-based makeup removers can be your ally in the battle against stubborn, waterproof makeup. Oil-based solutions dissolve makeup, making it extremely easy to wipe away even the most smudge-proof mascara or long-staying foundation.

The Truth About Pre-Moistened Cloth Wipes 

The one-step, instant makeup removal process is what makes pre-moistened cloth wipes and cotton pads a popular pick. While they may seemingly cleanse our faces, these convenient products might not deliver the thorough cleanse your skin needs. In fact, makeup remover wipes often just spread the makeup across your face. Additionally, constant tugging and rubbing can irritate sensitive skin and accelerate the appearance of fine lines. 

Your 'Get Unready with Me' Routine with Frownies

With Frownies, your nightly "unready" ritual doesn't have to be complicated -- You can look forward to a relaxing and nurturing practice for your skin. These organic, natural, and skin-loving products are carefully selected to cater to your unique skin type and concerns, ensuring you end your day with a simple and effective, nighttime routine. 

Step 1: Cleansing

The first step in your evening routine should be gently removing the day's makeup and impurities with Frownies' pH Balancing Face Wash. Apply a small amount to your damp face in circular motions. This cleanser, featuring Willow Bark Extract, Soapwort Extract, and essential oils, efficiently cleanses the skin without stripping it of its natural oils. Rinse with lukewarm water and pat dry with a clean towel.

Step 2: Apply Serum

Next, nourish your skin with Frownies' Apple Serum, designed for deep skin rejuvenation. Boasting a unique skincare ingredient, apple stem cells,, this serum aims to address fine lines, crow's feet, and dark spots. Apply a small amount evenly over your face and neck after toning, allowing its lightweight formula to quickly soak in, leaving your skin hydrated and smooth.

Step 3: Tone and Hydrate

After cleansing, it's important to rebalance your skin's pH with a toner. Use Frownies' Rose Water Hydrator Spray with hyaluronic acid to refresh and hydrate your skin.

Step 4: Use Eye Cream

Address the delicate area around your eyes with Frownies' Vitamin E Eye Cream. This cream helps soothe and replenish the under-eye skin, targeting the appearance of dark circles and fine lines. Gently apply a small amount under each eye to ensure you wake up looking rested and refreshed.

Step 5: Moisturize

Finish off your routine with one of Frownies' Aloe & Oat Gel Moisturizer. This moisturizer is perfect for providing light hydration to oily or acne-prone skin. Seal in the moisture and benefits of your skincare routine and ensure lasting hydration and protection.

Extra Steps

Feeling like giving your skin a little extra love? Why not include some extra steps that turn your routine from basic to spa-like? Maybe a clay face mask is just what your skin needs for a deep cleanse and a hydrating refresh. It's not just about pulling out impurities; it's a full-on treat for your skin that helps balance oil, boost hydration, and arm you with antioxidants.

And if the day's been a marathon, your eyes might need some extra attention. Pop on some under-eye gels and let them do their magic. These are a great way to tackle puffiness and dark circles. Plus, they're a perfect excuse to relax for a few extra minutes at the end of the day.

Finally, for the best skin-smoothing results, Frownies Facial Patches should be worn consistently to relax facial tension and soften expression lines. After you've allowed your PM skincare to fully absorb, position the Frownies patches on areas like your forehead or between your eyes, areas commonly prone to expression lines. Give the Frownies Wrinkle Patches a quick spritz with Frownies Rosewater Spray. This not only gives you the best application; the rosewater serves a dual purpose, activating the vegetable-based adhesive for the patches and showering your skin with hyaluronic acid and soothing ingredients.

Let the patches retrain facial muscle movement overnight, focusing on those fine lines while you rest. In the morning, when the Frownies patches are removed, many of our customers report being greeted by visibly smoother skin.

Just remember to give your skincare routine the time it deserves, ideally finishing at least 15 minutes before bed allowing your skin to fully absorb the benefits of each product. And voila! The 'Get Unready With Me' routine is completed, leaving you glowing with natural radiance.
