Matthew Noszka’s Nighttime Skincare Routine For Acne | Go To Bed With Me | Harper’s BAZAAR


(jazzy beat) (ping) – What do you say we go get ready for bed? So my first step in my nighttime
routine is my facewash. I have this Farmacy Clean Bee. Honestly guys, I’ve tried like
a million different things . I’ve had so many problems with my skin. This one I feel like I’ve
had the most success with because it doesn’t really dry me out. So I would wash it all the time. But I realized that
washing it all the time was just like worse for me, so I found that this
has been gentle enough to keep the natural oils but
still keep me clean at night. So first I like to use some hot water. Not too hot, like warmish. And then shut the water off, I used to let it run and my Mom would just
yell and yell and yell. But I don’t anymore. I like to do some circular motions. Get the t-zone, I only know that because
I get a lot of facials. Get my neck, and ready for a rinse. I rinse with cold water because I was told that when
you rinse with cold water it closes your pores up
and doesn’t keep ’em open. It’s not the most glamorous routine, but you know what? I found that it started working for me and that was the hardest
thing for me to find, was things that work. My skin gets a little
red after but you know, I’ve got fair skin. So step two is this La Mer oil. This La Mer oil is something that I just got put onto recently. It’s worked wonders because
when I do wash my face, especially in the winter
months in New York, it gets super dried-out. So I usually use like
one or two drops of this. Rub it with my hands. I don’t put this much on at first, I usually just like wipe it on my chest, I don’t know if that’s
weird but it’s what I do. Just kinda put it on my face, it helps when I wake up
in the mornings sometimes I would notice my skin was super dry and even like opening my mouth, that would feel really tight, but this would keep it in check. Get a little on my neck. I kinda like to do my neck because like when you wear t-shirts, I know it sounds weird but like when you wear t-shirts
you have a good complexion from the neck up when you use oil and moisturizer on your neck and plus it’s also
recommended by dermatologists. Listen, I’ve seen so many dermatologists and I’ve taken Accutane
twice and it didn’t work, I was like in the 10th percentile that it would work and
then it would come back. So I’ve honestly seen so many people that it’s just really
been a struggle for me. There’s people that can get a pimple and like go about their day. They’re like oh, it’s fine, whatever, I got like a pimple here,
it’s cool, no big deal. Now there’s other people
that get that pimple and they are just straight
up social anxiety, I don’t want to talk to anybody, whoever is talking to me
is staring right at it and they’re not looking at me. And that was me. So I’d be in the mirror in the morning in high school, even after high school like when I first moved to
New York and I was modeling, I was like, “Man, I can’t go out looking like this”. I look horrible. And it got to a point where I would call my agent or I’d call my Mom and be like I’m not leaving the house, like I’m not and they’re like you look fine, you do and I’m like “No I’m not going”. So I’ve definitely struggled with it, anyone else out there that has acne, I’m with you, I promise, it’s not like as glamorous as
it may seem because you got phase 2 and this to go. Not that I’m promoting
you guys to use that but if you’ve have a pimple it’s not a big deal to cover it up. Next is this Fresh Vitamin Nectar. It’s probably one of the
most natural moisturizers that I’ve found. It’s not too heavy but it’s
definitely worked to where when I put it on it
hydrates my skin enough to where it’s not like a heavy greasy look whenever you leave the house
or when you go to sleep. So I use it morning and night. So you just need a
little dime-sized amount. I just work it into my fingertips, go under the eyes first and I’ve found that my smoothest fingers are the ring finger I don’t know why but I
use those for my eyes. My forehead, I like to put it on my neck. And they’re you go. We’re done with that. So next step we have Mario Badescu, it’s a drying lotion. So I’ve found that if you
have an acne like pimple that is like burrowing, it’s
getting ready to pop out and just annoy the hell out of you. You throw this on it and
it will eliminate it. It’s worked wonders. You can’t overuse it because it definitely dries your skin out and will make you peel. But I’ve found that if you have anything that’s really a problem like that cystic pimple
that will not go away or it’s like a pain to push on it. If you put it over top of
it and leave it overnight, it usually takes care of it for you. I’m not gonna use it right now because I don’t feel like I have to and I hope I don’t have to later but yeah, keep that in mind. Okay so last but certainly not least, this is not an every night occurrence but this Creed Aventus is
the best cologne ever. I’ve used it for probably
like two years now. A friend of mine put me onto
it and it’s been incredible. Every cab that I get into, whether it’s a guy or a girl they’re like, “Yo, what are you wearing?” I’m like, “Yo, Creed Aventus”. It’s a little expensive
so I’ve like learned to use it sparingly. When I first got it my friends were like, “Yo, let me get a spray.” At that point I’m like, “Yo, 10 bucks, throw me 10 for this”. Um, that’s definitely a morning
and night thing, for sure. Alright and that’s a wrap
on my nighttime routine. Let me bless you. Ooohhh. (uppity beat)
