I love getting ready for bed. I know, I know, old granny alert! But after a long day I love taking some time to myself to relax and decompress. One of my favourite parts of getting ready for bed is taking off my makeup. It has becoming a bit of a relaxing routine for me and once I am cleansed and moisturised I feel completely ready to slid into bed and have a read of my book before going to sleep. 

My Current Evening Skincare Routine

I have filmed a YouTube video of my evening skincare routine so be sure to have a watch of it down below. The first product I use is the Clarins Instant Eye Makeup Remover, which is perfect for getting rid of all mascara and eyeliner. It is lovely and gentle but ensures that I don’t wake up with panda eyes. Once I have cleansed my eyes, I then apply the Exuviance Cleanser to take off the rest of my makeup. Again this is very gentle yet removes makeup perfectly. To ensure that my skin has been properly cleansed I like to use the Clarins Toner to take away any makeup that has lingered on my skin.

Once I have cleansed I like to apply some sort of serum to my skin. I have been loving the Dr Botanicals Cocoa Noir Serum, which is so softening on the skin and is designed to decrease the effects of aging and promote a youthful glow. I then like to apply Total Moisture from Benefit Cosmetics for my moisturiser which is lovely and rich and hydrating. I then finish my facial skincare with a spot of the Snake Formula Balance Eye Cream under each eye to make them feel plump and bright by morning. 

As well as having an evening skincare routine, I also like to apply a few beauty products to my body before getting into bed. I love applying this Lush Sleepy Body Lotion to my shoulders, neck and arms. Not only is it really hydrating, meaning that my arms feel silky smooth when I wake up, but it contains lavender and chamomile, which is really relaxing and calming. I also like to apply a small amount of The White Company White Lavender Hand Cream. This smells absolutely incredible and the scent from my hands alone is enough to send me into a deep and relaxing sleep. 

Ways To Ensure A Restful Night’s Sleep 

Give Yourself Enough Time - I hate rushing around when it comes to anything especially if I am trying to relax and wind down for the day, so I like to give myself enough time to get ready for bed.

Wear Something Comfy  - I am in love with this silky PJ set from Primark that I picked up a few weeks ago. It is a beautiful strappy top and short set with pretty lace detailing that is ideal for summer. 

Do Something Peaceful – For me this means reading my book so that I can really wind down after a busy day of my brain being active.

Minimise Phone Time – It has been proven that being active on our phones before bed can cause disruption to our sleep so I try not to look at mine before bed.
