STEP 1: CLEANSE

No matter how tired you are, it’s essential to remove makeup and impurities with a deep cleansing balm – it’s paramount to achieving your best skin. The Estée Lauder Advanced Night Micro Cleansing Balm dissolves makeup and dirt within seconds and melts into an oil as you massage it into your skin. Apply from centre out, repeating the motion three times, and remove with warm water.

STEP 2: TONE

Apply two to three drops of the Estée Lauder Micro Essence Skin Activating Treatment Lotion onto the palms of your hands and gently press into the skin, again, from the centre out, repeating three times. The lightweight treatment is packed with peptides that strengthen and smooth.

The skin around your eyes is said to be seven to ten times thinner than the rest of your face, so shouldn’t be neglected

STEP 3: REPAIR

Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair is one of the brand’s best selling anti-ageing products – and with good reason. Boasting plumping, smoothing, moisturising, and skin rejuvenating effects, the benefits of Advanced Night Repair shouldn’t be underestimated.

Apply five drops onto the palm of your hands and apply onto the skin using Estée Lauder’s signature heart ritual (starting at the chin, upwards towards your forehead and around the outside of your face, so you get a ‘heart’ shape), and then repeat three times. Emma Tillman, Estée Lauder UK Pro Makeup Artist uses hers as a midday pick me up too, pressing three drops over makeup for an instant refresh.

STEP 4: CARE

The skin around your eyes is said to be seven to ten times thinner than the rest of your face, so shouldn’t be neglected. This Marie Claire award-winning skin strengthening formula plumps and hydrates tired-looking eyes to leave you looking refreshed and rested. Use it to gently roll the Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Matrix under each eye three times. Why not treat yourself to a weekly eye mask too. Fabled by Marie Claire loves the Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Mask.

STEP 5: GLOW

When your skin needs some serious radiance boosting, reach for Estée Lauder Revitalizing Supreme Crème which also comes in a light-weight, oil-free formulation. One of its key ingredients, moringa plant extract, is incredible at boosting skin health – plumping fine lines and adding moisture. Apply a pea sized amount of the tips of your fingertips or palms and massage into your skin, repeating each motion three times.

STEP 6: TREAT

Indulge in some Sunday night skincare selfcare with Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Powerfoil Mask – there is no faster way to pep up overtired skin. Packed with a double dose of Advanced Night Repair Serum, each treatment delivers a surge of liquid revitalisation.
