I am no stranger to beauty routines *wink* or slathering myself with lotions, but right now I am all about the final beauty shot before I tuck myself in bed and call it a day! Be it skincare or body, its been working wonders for not just my well being but also for my sleep. Waking up like a drowsy dried up raisin is NOT pretty!
A small basket holds everything and needless to say the contents vary with the change in weather. Among the fancy things, I love having a beautiful smelling body lotion which of course helps me to moisturise right before bed besides making up for any neglect through the day. My love for rose scents is far from getting old and right now the L’occitane Rose Body Milk is at the top of my stash!
Nuxe’s Reve de miel has been a staple ever since I got it (a couple of years back). Do you see the pristine new tub? It smells like a garden in bloom! This one completely deserves the love it gets from nearly every person I have come across.
I switched up my hand cream for something more luxury, after my L’occitane Shea Butter tube became too crippled to squeeze. I know Im being a hand-cream snob right now but.. blame the hands! The Aesop Resurrection Hand balm is a lovely smelling, non-sticky hand creme and I feel gratified after using it, although I don’t need something as expensive as Aesop for that! I am budgeting and trying to not go overboard as much!
My feet have gotten really dry and battered thanks to the weather and my general negligence. I decided to give fancy a break and go old school with Vaseline and a pair of cotton socks. A little massage at night combined with the warmth from the socks equals soft fuzzy feet come morning!
I also keep a reading light close by just to sneak a book when I cannot sleep. Its a couple of years old now but works really well. I bought it off Amazon here and it comes in handy when no amount of counting can put you to sleep!
Let me know whats your beauty routine for the beauty sleep!
Have a great weekend everyone!
