I love winding down at night and feeling relaxed as it get me ready for bed and there’s nothing better than feeling cosy and feeling prepared for the next day.
I have to be organised otherwise I’ll stress like there is no tomorrow so on a typical weekend night, I like to tick all these steps off my list and I can then fully relax.
The thing that is a necessity is to start on my skincare which I love to do and I will always start by taking my makeup off. I always take my makeup off by using my Garnier Micellar Water and some Oval Cosmetic Pads from Primark which I absolutely love. The Garnier micellar water has been a favourite of mine for years now as it takes my makeup off so well whilst being refreshing and giving some moisture to my skin.
I tend to use a face mask around once a week to give my skin a boost of hydration and life so I will use the Una Brennan Super Facialist Intense Moisture Mask. This has always been a firm favourite of mine as it’s super moisturising and hydrating which is perfect for my dry skin. I’ll keep this on for around 10 minutes and whilst I wait I will give my body a quick moisturise.
If you read my 2017 Goals then you might remember how I wanted to try and moisturise my body more as I used to be quite lazy and could never be bothered. However now I religiously moisturise (least one of my new year resolutions worked…) and as it’s getting a bit sunnier and warmer I use my Dove Summer Glow Nourishing Lotion in Fair To Medium which is a subtle gradual tanner. I’m so pale naturally so this gives my skin a little bit of colour and glow whilst also being a great moisturiser. I use this a couple of times a week and I still look pale however it does build up after a while and I love using this as there is no chance of it looking patchy or making you look like an orange. They also offer a darker option which is great to use if you want it a tad more bronzed.
♡ Prepare For The Next Day;
I love to go to sleep knowing that I have a plan and goals for the next day as I try and make the most out of each day. I make lists on what I need and want to do the next day which can include things like ‘wash makeup brushes’ or ‘do homework- will take 50 minutes’ and this just lets me see everything that I want to do. Making lists makes me so much more productive and I manage my time so much more better when I have a plan of action for the day.
I make my daily lists in this small rectangular To-Do List from Home Bargain which is perfect for daily lists. On a weekday I tend to make a list for Monday-Friday but I always make daily lists on weekends and holidays.
♡ Tidy Room;
I’m a firm believer in ‘tidy room, tidy mind’ so my room tends to be quite tidy most of the time, however I always make sure my room is spick and span before I got to bed. I’m a bit of a neat freak when it comes to my room so I make sure everything is away and nothings in the wrong place or looks messy. Nothing stresses me out more than a messy room!
♡ Wind Down;
I’m always in my pyjamas’s by 8 o’clock which I think is quite early and I love relaxing early on. I like to watch a TV at night, whether it’s an episode of Teen Wolf or Holby City and of course it’s not complete without a bag of crisps… I try and keep of my phone at night as I get headaches very easily when I’m in front of bright lights however I will sometimes quickly go on it before I go to sleep.
I’m a girl who loves her beauty sleep and let me tell you, I am not someone you want to be around when I haven’t got enough sleep! On a weekday I go to bed at around 10:30ish and I’ll wake up at 6:45am. I think sleep is so important and with moisturised skin, a plan for the next day, tidy room and feeling relaxed, I can have the perfect nights sleep!
