Bedtime is my favourite time of day and previously my routine would consist just diving straight into bed with the TV on but recently I've been trying to make the most of my beauty regime before I settle down into a slumber. I always make sure I do my night time skincare routine before getting into bed but on my bedside table I have been reaching for these products that have really made a difference.
Before I physically get into bed, I spray my pillow with the This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray, theres only one word to describe this spray and it's HEAVEN, the lavender scent is so soothing and relaxing. If I'm feeling especially tense or in need of some proper relaxation, I take the This Works Deep Sleep Stress Less rollerball and apply this to my pressure points and take around 5-10 minutes sat on my bed quietly, inhaling the scent, this does wonders for relaxing me before I sleep and I've found by doing this I have a solid nights sleep.
A must for me at the moment is a good lip balm as my lips have been so dry and chapped so I always make sure I have the pot of Carmex Lip Balm at the side of my bed and in my handbag. It works intensively overnight and most mornings I do wake up and I can still feel some residue on my lips, which I like as it feels it's locking in moisture. Being a shellac wearer I take good care of my hands and I always believe a good hand cream makes a huge difference, the E45 Repair & Protect Overnight Hand Cream is an intensive moisturiser that works overnight to keep my hands, nails and cuticles feeling nourished. Finally I close my eyes and mist the Asda Dry Eye Spray over each eyelid to hydrate my eyes. This is a dupe for the Optrex Actimist but for half the price, being a contact lens wearer my eyes are prone to becoming dry so I use this as and when I need to keep it at bay.
Once my regime is completed, I climb into my bed and delve into a good book, at the moment I'm currently reading The Girl On The Train by Paula Hawkins. Everyone who has read this tells me how brilliant it is and the reviews speak for itself. I'm trying to limit the amount of technology use on an evening so settling down with a book has been the best way to ensure I relax and get some quality sleep.
Do you have a bedtime routine?
