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.
