Busy schedules can become super hectic, overwhelming us with stress and making it hard to push ourselves to keep going. It is so incredibly important to find time to spend on you, to unwind after a long day, relax, and feel pampered.
Today, I want to share with you my relaxing night routine that I try to indulge in weekly.
The first thing I do is throw my hair into a bun and remove any makeup I have on with a makeup wipe. My current favorite are the Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes! Once all of my makeup is off, I use the Skin Laundry Gentle Foaming Face Wash to cleanse my skin. This is perfect for my sensitive skin and has a lovely scent.
Once my skin is squeaky clean, I like to pat dry and apply a face mask. One that I love is the Adama Minerals Deep Pore Cleanser Clay Mask. This is one of those face masks that you can just feel working. If you want to do less work on your relaxing night, try a sheet mask! They are super easy to use and work just as well.
When my face mask is on, I fill my Smile Brilliant trays with teeth whitening gel and run a bath with an overwhelming amount of bubbles (sometimes I use a bath bomb from Lush). I insert my Smile Brilliant trays and begin my whitening routine (I leave my whitening trays in for about an hour). While Smile Brilliant and Adama work their magic, I like to either grab my current read, listen to my favorite artist, (who just happens to have the most soothing voice in the world) Lana Del Rey, and RELAX.
After my face mask hardens, I remove it with warm water, pat dry, then I use Vitamin E Oil as a moisturizer (I get mine at Trader Joe's, but you can get this almost anywhere). I let that absorb into my skin for a few minutes and spritz a little bit of my Mario Badescu Facial Spray.
Another thing I love to do is exfoliate my lips with Lush Lip Scrub. They have so many yummy flavors, and your lips will feel soft and smooth afterwards. After this, I apply the Glossier Universal Skin Salve as a lip balm. When I'm all finished, I put on a comfortable outfit and hop into bed to watch a movie.
Since I mentioned Smile Brilliant in my routine, I want to share my results with all of you! I have been using Smile Brilliant for months now, and I have seen incredible results (you can see my initial review here).
Here are my before and after photos :)
