AM vs PM Skincare Routines | Zarmis Beauty

Which potion to apply when? What should I slap on my face in the morning? And what about at night? If these questions have ever crossed your mind, you’re not alone!

AM vs PM skincare routine –– it’s a bit like outfit changes for your face, isn’t it?

In the daytime, your skin needs protection against the elements; sun and pollution. It’s like prepping your canvas before you paint a masterpiece.

But when the stars come out, your skin craves a different kind of TLC (tender loving care) – cleansing away the day’s dirt and giving your skin a chance to refresh while you catch some sleep.

Now, we get it – everyone’s skin is as unique as a fingerprint. Some of us wrestle with dry patches, while others battle oily zones. But no worries!

Here at Zarmis Beauty, we’ve heard it all and provided you with a fail-proof guide to the basic steps every AM and PM skincare routine needs.

First of all, let’s start with the simplest questions; what is am and pm? is pm morning or night?

AM vs PM Skincare Routine

AM – Preparation & Protection

Your morning skincare routine is vital to get your skin ready for the day. It’s important because, during the day, your skin faces harmful stuff like UV rays, pollution, and dirt. These can damage your skin and speed up aging. Let’s get into the detailed essentials:

  • Cleanser

Before applying any other product, cleanse your skin with a gentle cleanser to give it a fresh start. Cleansing helps to remove any dirt, oil, and impurities that may have accumulated overnight, leaving your skin fresh and ready for the day ahead.

You can use our Pixl by Petra Rose Cream Cleanser which is best for all skin types. Massage it onto damp skin, then rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water and make your skin pretty clean and fresh.

  • Serum

Next up, apply a lightweight serum packed with powerful antioxidants like Vitamin C. It helps to protect your skin from environmental damage, brighten your complexion, and promote collagen production.

Our top product is Antipodes Organic Worship Skin Defence Antioxidant Serum. Gently pat the serum onto your face and neck, allowing it to absorb fully into the skin.

  • Moisturiser

Hydration is key, no matter your skin type! Opt for a moisturiser that provides lightweight hydration without leaving your skin feeling greasy.

One of the best skincare products at Zarmis Beauty is SkinB5 Acne Control Moisturiser. It helps to attract and retain moisture, keeping your skin plump and supple throughout the day. Smooth the moisturizer evenly over your face and neck, focusing on any dry areas.

  • Eye Cream

Don’t forget to show some love to the delicate skin around your eyes! Choose an eye cream formulated to hydrate, brighten, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

The best one for all these benefits is Cerave EyeCream. Using your ring finger, gently dab a small amount of it around the orbital bone, avoiding direct contact with the eyes.

  • Vitamin C – Antioxidant

For an added boost of radiance and protection, incorporate a Vitamin C serum into your morning routine. Vitamin C helps to neutralize free radicals, even out skin tone, and enhance your skin’s natural luminosity.

We have the best CeraVe Vitamin C Serum with hyaluronic acid; 10% Pure Vitamin C. Apply a few drops of this serum after your regular serum, focusing on areas of hyperpigmentation or dullness.

  • Hyaluronic Acid

Enhance your skin’s hydration levels with a Hyaluronic Acid serum. It attracts and retains moisture, plumping up your skin and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Apply a few drops of COSRX The Hyaluronic Acid 3 Serum onto damp skin before your moisturizer, gently pressing it in for optimal absorption.

  • SPF – Sunscreen

Lasly, it’s time to shield your skin from the sun’s harmful rays. You can use our Vichy Spf 50 Cream as sunscreen, even on cloudy days. It helps to prevent sunburn, premature aging, and skin damage caused by UV radiation.

Be sure to cover all exposed areas of your face and neck, and don’t forget about your ears and any other sun-prone areas!

PM – Correction & Repair

Alright, gorgeous, let’s talk about your night skincare routine – the ultimate wind-down session for your skin after a long day.

Start by saying goodbye to the day’s makeup, dirt, and impurities with a gentle Pixl by Petra Rose Cream Cleanser. This step sets the stage for the rest of your routine by ensuring your skin is squeaky clean and ready to absorb all the goodness to come.

  • Toner

After cleansing, swipe on a toner to rebalance your skin’s pH levels and refine your pores. Lancome Makeup Remover Milk+Toner is best product performing as makeup remover and the toner at the same time. Think of it as the reset button for your skin, prepping it to soak up the next steps with ease.

SkinChemists Retinol Intelligent Repair Stimulating Facial Serum at Zarmis Beauty is packed with potent ingredients like retinoids or nourishing serums, this step works wonders to target specific concerns like fine lines, wrinkles, or hyperpigmentation, helping your skin repair and renew overnight.
