New Year’s Eve—the one night a year when everyone comes together to celebrate the clock striking midnight. After the party’s over, your first instinct might be to head straight to bed, but it’s important to work your way through a skin care routine before hitting the day. Don’t worry, your post-New Year’s Eve skin care routine doesn’t have to be complicated—three steps will do! Follow our easy skin care routine, featuring no-rinse micellar waters, clay facial cleansers, a variety of face masks, and water-based moisturizers, below.
If you attended a New Year’s Eve party this year, then it’s likely that you wore makeup. And it’s not the best idea to sleep in your makeup, as it can mix with the dirt and oils that have built up on the surface of your skin, leading to clogged pores (and clogged pores can lead to breakouts and blackheads). That’s why the main focus of your post-New Year’s Eve skin care routine should be removing your makeup before bed.
Step 1: Remove makeup with micellar water. One of the easiest ways to remove makeup is by using a no-rinse facial cleanser option, like micellar water. The L’Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser for Normal to Oily Skin purifies and mattifies, the L’Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser for Normal to Dry Skin hydrates and soothes, and the L’Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Waterproof Cleanser for All Skin Types intensely purifies. Simply saturate a cotton pad with micellar water and wipe the pad across your face.
Step 2: Double-cleanse with a clay facial cleanser. Sometimes, one cleanse isn’t enough to rid the surface of your skin of every impurity that has built up. After you’ve removed your makeup with micellar water, double-cleanse with a clay facial cleanser. Have your pick from the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Detox & Brighten Cleanser, L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Purify & Mattify Cleanser, or L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Exfoliate & Refine Cleanser, which are formulated to remove impurities from the surface of your skin without over-drying. Squeeze a small amount of your facial cleanser of choice into your hands and add water to transform it from clay to mousse. Then, gently massage the facial cleanser onto your face and rinse off thoroughly with lukewarm water.
Step 3: Hydrate with a water-based moisturizer. Once you’re done cleansing, it’s time to apply moisturizer. Don’t towel off post-cleansing, though—applying moisturizer to damp skin can help lock in hydration. Look for a water-based moisturizer formulated for your skin type, like the L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Normal/Oily Skin, L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Normal/Dry Skin, or L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Extra Dry Skin. All three water-based moisturizers are formulated with hyaluronic acid and aloe vera water to help provide long-lasting hydration. That’s it—you’re done for the night. Sweet dreams!
Bonus step: Use a face mask the next morning. Had a little too much fun on New Year’s Eve? We totally feel you. That means it’s the perfect time to stay in and relax. On New Year’s Day, pamper your skin by applying a face mask. Try a charcoal mask, like the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Detox & Brighten Face Mask, which can help reduce the look of dull skin. You can also multi-mask with multiple face masks. Pick from the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Purify & Mattify Face Mask, L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Exfoliate & Refining Face Mask, L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Clear & Comfort Face Mask, and L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Clarify & Smooth Face Mask. Just apply your face mask(s) of choice to clean skin, leave on for 10-15 minutes, then rinse off thoroughly with lukewarm water. Use our face masks three times a week for best results.
