The Essential 6-Step PM Skincare Routine

The 6-Step PM Skincare Routine You Need

Confused about what, exactly, your evening skincare routine should look like?

You’re not alone.

Turns out, many women are not only confused about which specific beauty products to buy, but also about what categories of products they even need as well as the order in which to apply them.

Sure, the exact products you need will vary based on your age, skin type, and lifestyle, (you may, for example, need an acne-fighting cleanser in your 20s but a moisturizing one in your 40s,) but according to Sonia Deasy, founder of the Irish-owned cosmetics company Pestle & Mortar Cosmetics, your six steps PM skincare routine should be pretty consistent across your adult life.

Here’s your 6-Step Essential PM Skincare Routine…

Cleanse.  Wash the day (or night’s!) dirt and sweat away by cleansing your face with lukewarm water and a gel or cream cleanser (at night, Sonia recommends you double-cleanse!). After washing, dab your face to dry. 

Apply toner.  Non-alcoholic toner is best and all you need is a cotton-balls worth! Swipe around your face, focusing on any problem areas. Have acne-prone skin? Try this DIY Homemade Toner For Acne-Prone Skin.

Use a face misting spray.  Immediately puts some moisture back in your skin. Click here for some of our favorites!

Apply serum. Perhaps the most important product, one that Sonia has built the foundation of her company on. Serums – especially ones containing hyaluronic acid like Pestle & Mortar’s Pure Hyaluronic Serum – contain an incredible amount of anti-aging and moisturizing benefits including reducing fine lines, dullness and dehydration while restoring a healthy glow, plumpness and radiance

Moisturize. Moisturizing will help you look and feel younger, provide softer, more elastic skin, keep your skin hydrated – the list goes on!

Apply eye cream.  The under eye area is the thinnest part of your skin, so it’s desperate for the moisture found in a great eye cream. Don’t forget this important step!
