My 5 Night Time Routines

I was pretty bored Saturday night sitting in front of my laptop, trying to think of a blog topic to write about. And yes, I don’t go out Saturday nights. I enjoy being at home with my dog haha I often wonder how people my age (people in their 30’s) party it up every weekend. If you are one of those people, tell me how you do it?? Anyway, I was thinking about a topic I could discuss and trying to avoid another product review today so I realised that I’ve never talked about my night time routine before.

This is pretty much what I do every night without a doubt:

Cleanse face & brush my teeth

Before going to bed, a must for me is facial cleansing and teeth brushing. For face cleansing, I first start off with an oil cleanser and then a foam cleanser just to make sure all my makeup is removed throughly. Right now I’m using Dermalogica Precleanse then followed by La-Roche Posay Sensi White Foam Cleanser. I dunno if it’s because I’m a bit OCD but brushing is super important to me as well. I feel like if I don’t brush, my mouth will be filled with disgusting bacteria when I wake up the following morning.

Wear my mouth splint/mouth guard

Not sure if you guys know this about me but for the last 5 to 6 years, I permanently wear a mouth splint to sleep. If you don’t know what a mouth splint is, it’s to prevent teeth grinding. I’m like the biggest teeth grinder on the face of the planet.

Use eye drops

The reason why I can’t wear contact lenses very often is because my eyes are naturally really dry. I’ve only recently started using eye drops before bed and I find that if I put some drops in before bed, my eyes feel more refreshed the following morning. My mum has been telling me to consider lasik eye surgery but the thought of my eyeball being sliced open scares the sh*t out of me.

A few sips of water before I sleep

I know some people avoid water before bed because it causes puffiness in the face but I need my liquids. The mouth splint that I wear really dries my mouth so I must have some water just before bed.

Moisturise my hands

I have a tube of hand cream on my bed side table and just before bed I like to moisturise my hands. It’s actually the best time to moisturise hands as you won’t wash it off for 7hrs+. Right now I’m using Aveeno Intense Relief hand cream, it does a pretty good job at keeping my hands nice and moisturised. This one is almost done but will definitely buy another tube.

What’s your bed time routine?

    I’m a 30-something & I prefer sleep over partying, which makes me a young nanna lol.

    My bed-time routine consists of my nightly cleanse & everything else that goes with it (mist/face oil/eye gel), brushing & flossing my teeth (didn’t spend 2 years with braces for nuthin!), applying a lip mask (my lips get parched all too easily) then some hand cream & cotton gloves (they help absorb the cream into my hands) before hitting the pillow. My routine sounds exhausting now that I look at it!

    I don’t know how anyone can not brush their teeth at night!
    Lip Balm and Hand Cream are by my bedside at all times.

    My doctor put me on iron tablets & boy can they bind you up! I have Metamucil morning & night. I remove makeup if I’m wearing it, cleanse, tone, add serum then clean my teeth. My father’s got false teeth, so I’d have nightmares as a kid if I accidentally went to bed without brushing my teeth! I’d wake up & have to go & clean them in the middle of the night! I don’t forget anymore! I go to bed with a huge glass of water beside me. It’s empty every morning. I’ve got a mouth splint too. When I’m in bed I put on my moisturiser then read for a while.

    It takes me 30-40 minutes to get ready for bed :)))) I shower, remove my makeup with double cleansing, I apply my serum, eye cream, face cream, neck cream, hand and body lotion, maybe do a little facial massage, and of course teeth brushing and flossing, lip balm – put my cute warm pajama on, jump in bed and Instagram a little bit :)))- now I know why I feel so tired every morning.

    I’m not consistent, but I need to be using that night guard!

    I definitely need to brush my teeth, cleanse my face and moisturise my hands before bedtime as well! I hate getting into bed without doing those.

    Try to do some kind of a face mask every evening, which I haven’t been too good lately, but I do want to get into it again. x
