Hello love bugs!
I remembered way back when our blog was little itty bitty fetus, I did a morning routine, so today I shall share my night time routine.
- Remove all makeup.
I remove my makeup using coconut oil, I find it really helps to remove my mascara. For a deeper cleanse I use rose water to remove all the excess dirt and makeup. I use a cotton ball until there’s no more makeup/dirt. After that I spray the Mario Badescu facial spray on and massage it into my skin. Once a week I will use a charcoal face mask before bed
2. Brush and braid hair
My hair has grown a lot longer since cutting it, and I find that if I have it down or up in a pony tail I wake up with the most horrific knots. So I brush through my hair about 100 times (50 each side) to make it soft, silky and knot free. Next I put a very little amount of rose oil onto my fingers and run it through my hair. This helps with shine, after this I braid my hair and call it good! I also find the rose oil helps my hair smell amazing the next morning when I take the braids out.
3. Brush teeth
Naturally I brush my teeth. I use baking soda and lemon juice first. I find it helps whiten my teeth as well as break down plaque and other gross stuff resting on your teeth! Next I use Tom’s mint toothpaste to brush my teeth. I really like how Tom’s has no fluoride in their products, it’s all natural!
4. Switch on my essential oil diffuser
I have a really hard time sleeping at night. With a little lavender oil in the air I find my sleeping has greatly improved! This especially helps after a long day of school and retail!
5. Put my mouth guard on and call it a night!
As a high stress person, I grind my teeth at night. This causes a lot of pain in my jaw the next morning, so I use my night guard to stop myself from grinding, after that I go to sleep.
That’s it for my nighttime routine! What do you do?
