Holy trinity of bedtime skincare

There was a time in my life where I didn't care much about skin care. I barely moisturized and never cleansed my skin with more than water. Nowadays, I'm the first one to convince people to go and get themselves a great exfoliator and get that coat of greasiness off their skin. I absolutely hate how my skin can feel in the evening after taking off my make-up and going through a day of city pollution, heavy weather and a lot of fatigue. That's why I've been on the lookout for a perfect way to give my skin a little bedtime treatment and I think I've found my kind of holy trinity now.
After taking off my make-up with micellar water, I wash my face and cleanse my skin with the Rituals Cosmetics Sensational Soft Cleanser. The name itself says it already: it's an extremely soft product that calms the skin instead of irritating it. By applying a pump of the cleanser without adding any water, you can easily massage it into your complexion as it becomes a very comfortable, oily substance.

I rinse the cleanser off my face with a wet cloth and then go to my next step, exfoliating. I do this 3 times a week or just whenever I feel like my skin needs it. This is mostly after a day of train rides and city gasses because my face feels extra greasy then and my pores just feel as if they are stuffed with dirt. I go for the Rituals Cosmetics Brightening Face Exfoliator because this one is very mild and comfortable with its small crystals. I feel as this one is a good one for my kind of skin because I tend to get sensitive from facial scrubs quite easily.

When I've finally washed off the scrub, I add a few drops of the Kiehls Midnight Revovery Concentrate and press it gently into my skin while massaging it as well. I've seen a lot of great results from this one, my skin feels fresher and better hydrated. The serum is very easy in use and you need just a few drops for a great result. And I love the smell!

Whenever I feel like it, I add my Biotherm Skin Best night cream to this holy trinity because I like the feeling of having a super moisturized face before going to bed.

What's your bedtime skincare routine?
