Morning Skincare Vs. Evening Skincare

Not sure how to personalize your morning and evening skincare routines? These tips will help you decide what products to use for a proactive approach to keeping your skin looking its best!

Morning Cleansing

Even though you don’t have any makeup on, you need to cleanse away oil and your evening skincare products each morning. This preps your skin for applying your makeup and skincare products.

Follow cleansing with a toner.

PM Cleansing

In the evening you can use the same cleanser as you do in the morning, but you may want to double cleanse. This will dissolve the makeup better than a solo cleanser. You could also use a multi-modality skincare device to cleanse and rejuvenate your skin.

Follow cleansing with a toner.

Morning Serum

Serums are nutrient-rich formulas designed to penetrate your pores. They nourish but don’t moisturize.

The antioxidants in serums help protect your skin from daily toxins. You don’t have to begin using serums until you are in your mid-20s, but it’s never too early or too late to add serums to your skincare routine.

Evening Serum

You can use the same serum you use in the morning, or a formula designed for evening use. This can include sheet masks. You can use a sheet mask in the morning, but it’s likely to be more convenient in the evening.

Morning Moisturizer

Morning moisturizers are a bit thinner than evening moisturizers. They lock in moisture, hydrate, and nourish your skin. Being thinner, it’s easier to layer your makeup on top. 

Be sure to layer broad-spectrum sunscreen over your moisturizer or use makeup products with UV protection.

Evening Moisturizer

Since you won’t be layering sunscreen or makeup on top, evening moisturizers are thicker and creamier. They tend to have more antioxidants than daytime products. This supports your skin as it heals and repairs while you sleep.

Morning Eyecare

It’s never too early or too late to begin using eye serums and moisturizers. At the very least, begin using them when the signs of aging begin to show. Since the skin around your eyes is thinner, eye products are also thinner.

Select your products or morning skincare device by your individual needs, which may be to eliminate bags, dark circles, or tighten the skin around your eyes.

Evening Eyecare

If you wear long-wear or fiber mascara, creamy cleansers will do a better job of dissolving your makeup. You can also apply organic and unrefined olive oil or coconut oil to a cotton round and use it to dissolve your eye makeup and long-wear lipstick.

Follow up with eye serum and moisturizer.

Morning Personalization

You can personalize your morning routine by:

Applying Primer

Even if you don’t wear makeup, consider layering a primer over your sunscreen. This can provide color correction and an added layer of protection against daily toxins. If you wear makeup, primer also ensures a smooth base and long-lasting coverage.


Exfoliate your skin 2 to 3 days a week, in either the morning or evening. You can use a granular or chemical skincare product or an exfoliating device.

Evening Personalization

You can personalize your evening routine by:


Exfoliating sloughs away dead skin for smoother, brighter, and clearer skin. When you exfoliate in the evening you can follow up with deep cleansing.

Deep Cleansing

It’s ideal to exfoliate before you deep cleanse or to use a skincare device that cleanses and exfoliates at the same time.

The MBK Glo is a top pick as it is an all-in-one at-home facial device. Its features include:

  • Positive ion—the positive ion mode helps remove residue and aids in deep cleansing.
  • Negative ion—the negative ion mode helps with product penetration.
  • Warm—the heat helps to open the pores for better product penetration and removal of residue on the skin.
  • Vibration—this mode will help release residue in the pores. It stimulates the skin and aids in relaxing and toning.
  • Red Light—630nm-635nm, red light penetrates all the way to the dermis, promoting the growth of collagen to maintain the elasticity and water content of skin.
  • Yellow Light—590nm-595nm, yellow light can accelerate blood circulation, activate cells, promote cell growth, and improve pigmentation.
  • EMSElectric Muscle Stimulation (microcurrent),the device mimics brainwave signals to stimulate the muscles for a toning effect.

As always, when selecting skin care products and at-home anti-aging devices, ignore the fads and prioritize your individual and evolving skincare needs!

Why Add Red And Yellow LED To Your At-Home Skincare Routine?

Methode Brigitte Kettner is proud to offer a diverse range of skincare devices that are safe and effective for both spa and at-home use! One of our most popular devices is The GLO. This multi-modality rejuvenator includes red and yellow LED light as one of its many features. Its technology is based on scientifically proven skincare outcomes. Here’s what you need to know.


What Is LED Light And Is It Safe?

Technology and interior lighting might be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of LEDs. However, there are a variety of applications for LED light, including skincare.


LED skin care therapy is suitable for all skin types and all skin colors. It should never be used on inflamed skin, damaged skin, or open sores but is otherwise gentle, safe, and effective. There is no UV exposure and side effects are extremely rare.


You will feel a bit of warmth, but the skincare treatment is otherwise pain-free.


What Does Red LED Light Do For Your Skin?

Infrared light (red LED) is the most versatile of the LEDs. It penetrates your outer layer of skin. Its beauty benefits include:

  • Stimulating collagen production
  • Reducing inflammation
  • Promoting cellular repair
  • Improving circulation for a youthful glow
  • Minimizing scarring and evening skin tone
  • Minimizing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines


What Does Yellow LED Light Do For Your Skin?

Yellow LED light also penetrates the outer layer of your skin, stimulating the body’s natural healing abilities. Its beauty benefits include:


  • Accelerating blood circulation
  • Activating cells to heal and repair
  • Improving hyperpigmentation
  • Boosting lymphatic flow to purge toxins
  • Soothing skin that is prone to inflammation
  • Minimizing redness and rosacea


How Can I Use Red and Yellow LED Light At-Home?

You can add-on LED therapy to many spa facials, but it’s also safe and effective for home use. The GLO is a multi-modality device that you can use in between or as an alternative to spa facials. It delivers both red and yellow LED light, as well as:


  • Positive ions—remove residue and aid in deep cleansing.
  • Negative ions—infuse products into your pores.
  • Warmth—open pores to better infuse products.
  • Vibration—ease facial tension and stimulate, detox, and tone skin.

Yes! If you own or operate a spa, we also offer The GLO as a 3-pack so that you can use two at once or have one in each treatment room.
