Night Time Routine

I am no expert at all on mental health, but it seems like it’s a good idea to have a few daily routines in place just for the sake of unwinding and having some sense of normal. Over the years I have shared a few different versions of a nighttime routine {it definitely evolves over time}, but I always find it to be the most relaxing part of the day. Plus, after a long day there is nothing I look more forward to than a long, hot shower and finally being able to crawl under the covers. 
Remove Makeup// I couldn’t imagine going to bed without removing my makeup. Just the idea of everything that comes in contact with your face during the day and the general debris that floats around in the air just does not seem like it would be good for your skin… This is my favorite makeup remover at the moment and it is amazing

Listen to Music// I usually have the TV on or Music playing just for the sake of having bake ground noise; just having complete silence makes me feel a little antsy after a while. At night a make a point to listen to music that is more low-key like Frank Sinatra, Michael Bublé, or the Air Supply channel on Pandora {I know, make fun of me, but I just can’t help but like an old 80’s love ballot} 

Brush Teeth// This is another thing I don’t see how people can skip occasionally before they go to bed… Sometimes I even brush my teeth during the day if needed… I just hate that gritty feeling that some food can leave on the surface of teeth…

Shower// I always love how refreshed I feel after washing all the ruminates from the day off. There is seriously no better way to hit a reset button than with a shower

Night Time Facial Care// Who else is slightly obsessed with facial cream? Right now I love, love, love the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream, it’s so lightweight and not greasy at all. I also like to use these eye masks, and then follow everything up with this facial roller

Netflix// You have to leave the eye masks on for 20 mins so I usually watch something that’s uplifting {who wants to watch something heavy before bed…} either on Disney Plus or Netflix

Read// If I don’t read before I go to bed it always takes me a little longer to fall asleep… I think just the constantly stimulation from the phone and computer through out the day causes me to be a little keyed up by bedtime and a book is always such a nice way to spend those last few minutes of the night before you finally drift off to sleep
