Night-Time Routine: Getting Ready for Bed.

It’s so important to remember to take time every night to take care of yourself by doing a little pampering and getting nice and clean. Here’s my current night-time routine. Lets get ready for bed!
Shower Power:

Lately I’ve been loving the Tresemme Keratin Infused shampoo and conditioner. It leaves my hair beautifully soft, shiny, and frizz-free. The Lavender Chamomile body wash from the Bath & Body Works Sleep collection smells incredible and helps me relax and unwind. The Clean & Clear Morning Burst facial soap is a favorite. I use this both morning and night. It’s light and gentle but really cleans your skin deep down to the pores.

Even after washing your face, it’s crucial to further remove your makeup with a makeup removing wipe. These are the best I’ve ever used and are infused with lavender to help calm skin redness before bed.

Using my Sephora eye makeup remover I trace under my eyes with a q-tip to ensure all eye make has been 100% removed. To further balance my skin’s PH level, I use an alcohol-free toner with my Target exfoliating cotton rounds. These cotton balls help brighten my skin and make me look radiant due to the exfoliating texture that removes dead skin.

You want to avoid SPF in your night beauty products. This moisturizer is amazingly hydrating and lives up to its name. While it’s a little expensive, it’s worth the splurge once in a while when you really want to treat your skin. In the winter it’s essential to focus on really keeping your skin healthy and moisturized.

I just picked up a sample of this Clinique “Dramatically Different” eye cream and I’ve been loving it! You can never start too young when it comes to anti-aging. This formula is antioxidant packed to really protect your skin from dark spots and signs of aging.
Hair:

Before I put a comb in my hair, I always generously spray my strands with my favorite de-tangler/leave-in-conditioner to help mend split ends and damage. To smooth fly-always and frizz, this styling cream works wonders! Never brush your hair when it’s wet! That’s a sure way to damage your hair. Instead, turn to a wide tooth comb to slowly make it through through your hair.
Lips:

These two are the ultimate power combo. The delicious, extra-hydrating formula of ESOS lip balm with classic Vaseline leaves lips soft and kissable in the morning.
Pampering and Unwinding:

Using the “True Blue Spa” foot scrub and lotion from Bath & Body Works, I love to give myself a little at home pedicure to keep my dancer’s feet happy in the harsh winter weather. To lock in the moisture of the lotion, slip into some aloe infused socks after.

Spray your pillow with a little sleep spray…

At least one hour before bed, electronically shut down. Read a book/magazine to help ease your mind and prepare to go to sleep. Avoid stimulating yourself with T.V. and computers before catching your zzz’s as it may interfere with your sleep cycle. I can’t sleep without a mug of tea . Lately I’ve been into the Tazo “Calming Chamomile” tea I picked up at Starbucks. Make sure your tea is caffeine free. Green tea tends to have caffeine along with black teas so I recommend chamomile tea before bed.
What do you do to get ready for bed?
Sweet dreams! xoxo
