Hey guys, it’s Nahema again, freelancer with R&R Luxury, and I wanted to share my nighttime skin-care regimen with you. Can I be honest with you? I did not always have a nighttime regimen. There were times when I would fall asleep with makeup on 🤦🏿♀️. A hot mess, I know!
My skin has been through quite a journey over the years, so I’m proud that I decided to get my act together. Before I get into my comfy bed, I make it my business to cleanse and moisturise my beautiful face.
Time to take some notes on my nighttime skin-care regimen.
The first step in my routine is cleansing. As many of you may know, my favorite cleanser is R&R Luxury’s Liquid Black Soap. I have used other brands before, but this one is my top pick because not only does it cleanse my skin it is also moisturising due to its key ingredient – Shea. Who knew that a simple component would be a game-changer?

Silicone Face Brush
I love pairing my silicone face brush with my Liquid Black Soap. It helps to clean out my pores, remove blackheads, and exfoliates my skin. The brush acts as a deep cleanser. I apply a small amount of soap to the brush and gently scrub in a circular motion. I make sure I clean around my neck as well.
Once done, I rinse with warm water and prepare for the next step.

Since I have combination skin, I make sure I keep my face moisturised at all times. These past couple of months, I have been treating myself to Baobab Oil which is known for being ultra-moisturising, and it’s true! I’ll be honest, this oil is heavy, but it’s fast-absorbing. Before you’re done massaging it into your skin, it has been thoroughly penetrated. Baobab Oil leaves a silky texture with a gorgeous youthful glow.
Rose Quartz Facial Roller
Anyone I know will gladly tell you about my love for crystals. I own plenty and even carry some with me. Rose Quartz is my favorite because it is the crystal of love and compassion. Anytime I use my rose quartz roller, I close my eyes a little and imagine the love I have for myself and my self-care. After applying my moisturizer, I gently run my facial Rose Quartz across my face. It helps to eliminate puffiness, fine lines and improves blood circulation in my face.
Lifehack: Place your facial roller in the refrigerator for about an hour. The coolness will quickly tighten your pores and de-puff your skin. You’re welcome 😉
Since being diligent with my nighttime regimen, I have noticed a considerable difference in my skin. It looks so much healthier with an added glow. As always, be sure to remain hydrated and eat plenty of fruits and vegetables. What we do on our insides always shows on the outside.
