Winter Night Routine

Winter night routines are therapeutic in a way. The heater is on and you’re ready to relax after a long day. What could be better than changing out of your office clothes and into something more comfortable? And of course, removing your makeup from the day is the best part.

Skincare

My nightly routine begins with removing all makeup and cleansing my face. Currently, a cleansing balm is my favorite as the weather has become colder and my skin looks duller. It is best to use a cleansing balm or oil as they help remove dirt and makeup without stripping the skin. I have been using Clinique’s Take the day Off Cleansing balm by Mecca. It is a balm to oil cleanser that melts away the day. It is so smooth and buttery. It also helps to break down waterproof makeup, which is a big win.

I recently went abroad and bought Laneige’s Hydration To Go travel set at Sephora. The Multi Deep Cleanser included in the set was my favorite. The cleanser is a lightweight cleanser which removes all of my makeup, cleansing balm and other products.

I rotate between Sulwhasoo’s First Care Activating serum and COSRX Enhanced Snail Mucin power essence, as both products provide

Drunk Elephant’s Lala Retro Whipped Cream is my favourite moisturiser. It contains six cold-pressed African oil and ceramides, which provide instant and lasting hydration. It’s thick and perfect for colder months.

Body Care

After a warm shower I like to use a body oil. Arithmos DE-STRESS ultrafine body oil smells so good. The exotic scents of cedarwood and sandalwood essential oils will help you to relax. This blend of oils will leave your skin feeling silky, plump and smooth.

Wellness

It’s time to drink! Jeuneora recently launched a product called Beauty Sleep which will help you to sleep like a baby. This super-rich hot chocolate powder is made with Adaptogenic Mushrooms, Pistachio extract and other plant-based ingredients. This super powder promotes a deeper, more restful sleep, improved mood, immunity, a balanced immune system, and a better ability to deal with stress and fatigue. It sounds wonderful, doesn’t?

Beauty sleep supports your health and well-being by supporting your sleep. Beauty Sleep is easy to use. Simply add one level scoop (7g), into 250ml of hot water, or milk.


The unique sleep aid is delicious served over ice, but it’s best to serve it hot. Use a little warm water to dissolve the powder, then add your favorite cold milk and ice. Beauty Sleep should be taken in the evening at least 30 minutes prior to bedtime.
