At the end of a long day my favorite moment is when I am getting ready for sleep as my new night time routine is full of relaxing tips and self care products.It wasn’t always like that , for example I spent hours on my phone before bed which was terrible for my sleeping schedule and I was feeling tired all the time so I decided to make some lifestyle changes.
First things first I make myself comfortable-I wear a nice set of pyjamas,remove my makeup and my jewellery and turn off all the strong lighting.Little things like my favorite candle burning or a cup of hot tea are super cosy and help a lot too.
Skincare routine is nesseccary.I use minimum products focused on moisturising my skin but heavy night creams don’t seem to work for me.I invested in a good Jade facial roller by Yu Ling which feels very soothing and I gently massage my face, neck and eye area for about 5 minutes(or more if I am not too sleepy).It boosts circulation and my skin looks very glowy and it is less puffy the morning after too.Then I use my trusty Caudalie Beauty Elixir which moisturises my skin in the most light and gentle way and its scent feels like aromatherapy ,it helps when I am feeling stressed and tired.Lanolips 101 ointment is the best multi use moisturising product as I use it for my lips, hands,cuticles and elbows.It’s a little bit heavy so I use it only before bed but it does such a great job!
I put my electronics away for at least an hour before bed.Instead I am reading a book, I am really old school here but it relaxes my mind the most. I am currently reading “A Doll’s house” by Henrik Ibsen which is amazing.While I am reading I massage my face with the roller and it’s the most relaxing thing.Then I spray my pillows and covers with a new favorite product the Deep sleep pillow spray by This Works which smells divine – it contains pure essential oils Lavender , Vetivert and Chamomile and it makes me feel sleepy and calm in seconds .
It’s an organic routine that helps my mind and body to relax and get ready for the next day.”Me time” is very important and we should all make time for it.
