Whether it’s rain forest sleep sounds, an Aromatherapy-infused bath or the pale waves and familiar laugh track of a late night Friends marathon, we all have a trick to falling asleep. But what about our skin? It gets just as tired as we do throughout the day but doesn’t always get the love it deserves. We need to make sure we’re properly caring for it—tucking it in, so to speak—so that it can rest up and renew for tomorrow (and the next day). Follow these 6 skin-loving steps from Aloette for the ultimate beauty sleep skincare routine.
1) Remove Makeup & Wash off the Day
Sometimes the temptation is just *too* real to turn the lights out, fall into bed and pull the covers over our heads without removing our makeup. But, by washing off the day and letting our skin rest, we’ll wake up with a much more refreshed complexion in the morning.
We recommend double cleansing for the ultimate face wash experience: first, wash the face with an oil-based cleanser, then follow up with a water-based cleanser. An oil-based cleanser is our go-to for makeup removal, as it’s designed to break down oil-based substances, like makeup, sebum and sunscreen. Look for skincare formulas that combine this oil-eliminating capability with hydrating ingredients, like Aloette’s Essential Cleansing Oil, which couples skin-loving Sesame, Avocado, Olive and Safflower oils with Aloe and Shea Butter for a soothing, residue-free finish.
Next, segue into your water-based cleanser, which, thanks to the oil-based cleanser, can penetrate further into the skin to help remove pore-clogging impurities like dirt and sweat. Ideal for all skin types, Aloette’s Gentle Foaming Cleanser is the perfect cleanser for the job, as it removes impurities while conditioning the skin with Aloe, Green Tea & Chamomile Extracts to help maintain the skin’s natural moisture barrier.
2) Set the Tone
While often deemed an optional step in the skincare routine, we think a toner is the must-have multitasker that helps balance your skin’s pH for a softer and smoother-looking complexion. Plus, a toner also helps ensure your skin is free of any hard-to-remove makeup, allowing the subsequent serums and moisturizers you apply to absorb further into the skin.
Pure Radiance Toner is designed to help balance, tone and firm the appearance of skin for, as the name indicates, a more radiant-looking complexion. Infused with Kombucha mushroom extract and Aloette’s proprietary Lumitone Complex, skincare ingredients geared towards moisturizing and brightening the appearance of skin, this toner is an ideal alcohol-free evening facial mist.
3) Serum Burst
Truly maximize your beauty sleep skincare routine by applying a conditioning serum before bed to help address certain skin concerns and amplify the results.
Infused with botanical extracts like Daisy Flower and Orange Blossom, this serum helps improve the look of uneven skin tone and dark spots to help promote a radiant-looking complexion. Whether you apply for spot treatment or use all over the face, Florabright Advanced Brightening Serum is a truly pampering addition to your skincare routine.
4) Nighttime Mask
We all love an indulgent, relaxing skincare mask to wind down the evening. Get the most out of this nighttime practice by choosing a mask type that’s best for your skin type.

5) Night Cream
Take self-care to the next level with an ultra-creamy night crème that can aid in the hydration process overnight. Look for a time-released formula so that your skin is continuously conditioned throughout your sleep. To help address skin concerns in the delicate under eye area like dark circles, puffiness and wrinkles, incorporate a more area-targeted night cream into your skincare routine.
We love Aloette’s Beauty Sleep Overnight Cooling Treatment for the way it deeply hydrates and conditions the skin with an expertly crafted blend of Farm to Jar ingredients, combined with age-defying hyaluronic acid and squalene. Beauty Sleep helps you wake up to firmer, smoother and softer-looking skin while dramatically reducing the appearance of problem skin factors including cystic acne, redness and inflammation.
6) Body Care
