Night Time Products for Acne Prone Skin

I have struggled with acne, hyperpigmentation and oily skin since my teens years. It’s something my skin never really out grew. Now that I’m a little older I know more about skin care and really look for products that won’t overly dry out my skin but still help even out my problem areas. These three products I rotate through using each night after washing my face with cleanser and absolutely love them. I know when I wake my skin will look refreshed and vibrant.

  • Drunk Elephant T.L.C. Framboostm Glycolic Night Serum resurfaces skin cells to help your skin look bright, more even and younger. Whenever I use this I know I’ll wake up with smooth skin and it’s really helped my dark spots look brighter. It does have a heavier price tag so I do recommend looking for kits with other Drunk Elephant products to try (all the ones I have tried out have been great).
  • The Kiehls Midnight Recovery Concentrate is a serum that is supposed to work with your skin’s nocturnal activity to help resurface dead skin cells. Very similar to the Drunk Elephant serum, this one helps create such a smooth skin texture and evens out my scarring. This one does sit on top of your skin so I like to put this on about 15-30 minutes before actually going to sleep so I don’t accidentally wipe it on my pillows or sheets.
  • About 2-3 nights a week I use the Kiehls Cilantro & Orange Extract Pollutant Defending Masque. This one was such an odd product to me at first, you place this on as you would any other mask for about 15 minutes and then use a tissue to remove the excess but not all of it. The rest of the mask that sits on your skin you leave on as you sleep. The first time I used this product I was amazed with how my skin looked when I woke up. All my current breakouts were vanished and my skin just looked so refreshed. It’s supposed to help fight natural toxins in the air to prevent dull unhealthy skin.

These are my go-to nightly products. I keep one of the serums at my boyfriend’s house and the other at my house where I split my time sleeping throughout the week so I cycle through both of the serums. I really couldn’t pick which one I like better but if you’re looking for a  unique addition to your night-time routine I would definitely suggest the mask.

Have you guys used any of these? What are your go-to night products?

  1. I have the Kiehls Midnight Recovery eye cream and loved that so I think I need to try the Midnight Recovery concentrate as I have heard so many good things about that too. I am currently rethinking my whole skincare routine but it’s difficult to choose which products to try next! x
