Hey friends! Today I am coming at you with my night time routine / get unready with me after a long day! I thought it would be fun to give you a little peak into my day-to-day life and what a *typical* night looks like — something that we don’t always see on Instagram stories or posts 😊
My Night Routine!
After dinner, I usually have some homework to finish up from the day. My online program is very demanding so I usually don’t have it all done before the evening haha! So, I take some time and finish some homework.
Once I’m finished with that, I like to check in on social media and engage with my community and some of my favorite people. A lot of the time, I go out and see boyfriend or friends, but I’m going to give you a glimpse into a “lazy night.” 😉
Depending on how lazy I’m feeling, I’ll either watch a movie or catch up on some of my favorite reading before getting ready for bed. My current favorite book to read is “Instruments in the Redeemer’s Hands” by Paul David Tripp and my favorite TV show is “The Flash” (I’m a nerd, I know haha).
After having some “me-time”, I’ll start getting ready for bed around 9pm. (I am a total grandma and I love my sleep haha!) The first thing I will do is take a shower because I’m a total night-time shower kind of gal.
My favorite shower gel right now is Philosophy’s Apple Cider Shower Gel! I know it’s almost spring time but I’m still using it up! It smells so delicious and you always feel super soft after showering.
Now it’s time to start my nighttime skincare routine!
First, I wash my face with one of my two favorite options: Cetaphil’s Skin Cleanser or Yes To’s 2-in-1 Clenaser & Exfoliator Stick! (You can find this bad boy at Target.) Cetaphil’s Cleanser is great for all skin types and your face feels refreshed and deep cleaned. The 2-in-1 Cleanser stick helps exfoliate and gently remove dead skin and refresh skin, all while cleansing!
Next, I pat my face dry with a towel and I apply a generous amount of Philosophy’s Purity Made Simple Moisturizer to my face. This is my all time favorite moisturizer: It’s texture is so light and non-greasy. After applying, your face will feel dewy and smooth. It’s so versatile so I use it both day and night!
My final step in my nighttime skincare routine is applying a light layer of eyecream. Now, I don’t always do this but when I can remember, I try to do it. I don’t get big, baggy circles under my eyes because I have hooded eyelids, but I do get the appearance of droopy looking eyelids and that’s not fun — so I apply a light layer of any ‘ol eyecream and call it a night. (Disclaimer: Not sure if eyecream really works, but it leaves a cooling sensation that helps from a long day of tired eyes haha!)
Before I hop into bed, I like to tidy up my room and make sure that clothes are put away and such. Maybe it’s just me, but I like going to bed knowing that things are somewhat tidied up!
Then I like to lather on my favorite body lotions and hand lotions because I have gotten super dry skin over the last few months! After that, I usually end up scrolling on my phone a little more than I’d like to admit — but I like to end my night by reading the Bible one more time or reading one of my favorite Jesus books!
After all that is said and done, it’s time to sleep! Sleeping is one of my favorite things honestly. Do you remember when you were a little kid and got mad at your parents for putting you down for a nap?! Now, I will never take for granted sleep haha!
I hope you enjoyed this little nighttime routine! It was fun to show you guys around 💗What are some of your nighttime traditions that you do before bed? Do you have any favorite products as of late? Let me know in the comments! xoxo
