I am not sure if I have ever done a night time routine, I did cover my skincare routine through all stages of the day back in February which you can see here. Most of the products are the same or very similar as they are what works for me.
So I thought I would start with the routine with me winding down, as my evenings vary and a whole evening routine covering what the 6ish hours between me getting home and going to bed seems a little much. So after doing whatever I’ve been doing I make myself a nice mug of Clippers Mango Green Tea, and change into my pjs, these cute coffee bottoms from Primark are some of my favourite. Then I sit and watch some YouTube videos, look through social media and text people just generally relaxing.
I take the time to tie my hair up and but on the rather fetching headband to keep all of my hair out of my face before starting my skincare routine. By this point I have usually already removed my makeup, I generally do it after getting in from work so my evening one is more to make sure my skin is cleansed and moisturised before bed.
In order to have some time away from the screen before bed, I get out my planner and write down what I need to do the next day, and appointments or plans. I also like to use the weather tracker so just make note. I’ll sometimes add to the monthly view, as I don’t use stickers but I like to draw little pictures to add some colour. Depending on my mood I sometimes to a bit of colouring while listening to some music, I need to invest in some big colouring books but for now I am using the back pages in the planner. I just do a bit at a time and build up but it’s just a way for me to cut down looking at a screen all day.
Sometimes I flick the tv on before bed, but now I am trying to just get into bed shut off the lights and get off to sleep. It’s made such a different to my sleep and I’m glad I’ve skipped watching tv late into the night.
So what is your night time routine like, busy and hectic or relaxing and chilled?
