Truth: Finding the time to wind down at the end of the day has become harder and harder since having a kid. But it’s so important to find a nightly routine or ritual to wind your body down from the day, to find some sort of balance. Think about it, I literally have a nightly routine for my child… so why wouldn’t I have one for myself. My evening ritual is something that I look forward to all day, it helps me refocus my energy and power down for the day. Sound a little silly– maybe but it works for me. Per usual it stars with SKINCARE!
Here’s my step – by – step skincare routine
Skincare : I’m a huge believer in taking off your makeup before hitting the sheets & a having a killer skincare routine– shocker. So I double cleanse off all my makeup, I have been doing this for awhile now and it’s just my thing and it leaves my skin feeling great–gosh the things we do once we hit 30 years old.
For my hyper-pigmentation at the moment I’m using no BS. super clean & natural vitamin C, you guys know how I love my Vitamin C. I just wrote ALL about why it’s the best and shared a few of my favorite products. So you can check it out here
Plus a girl needs some anti- aging help so my go – to is always retinol or if you don’t want to use a retinol or maybe you are pregnant. Try beating those fine lines with this Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil, and can’t forget a dab of eye cream… I’m doing the whole skincare package! AND wait can we please talk about Kopari Coconut Rose Toner. I have been using it for a month now and it’s my new best friend. It helps reduce my monstrous pores and balance my skin which I’m always looking for and it’s totally FREE of all the bad stuff: GMO’s, Sulfate, Cruelty and Paraben!
The Bed: I’m also all about slipping into crisp, clean sheets- – it totally sets the stage for drifting into dreamland. SO I prep my bed spraying it with some lavender oil and then I have to mention my black slip silk pillow case: hello anti- aging, anti-sleep crease, anti – bed head… it’s pretty much the pillowcase of my dreams.
GABA GABA: First of all, this isn’t a drug. It’s actually an amino acid that your body uses to help you relax. I love my GABA Ease, I think of it like a natural version of Xanax. So I take Gaba Ease and some other supplements right before I get into bed, because before I know it I am super relaxed and drifting off to sleep!
And there you go! My evening routine: it totally sets the stage for how I’m going to sleep. Just like how you create a bedtime routine for your baby, creating one for yourself will make a huge difference!
