When I was younger my nighttime routine was anything but structured.
I washed my face, only if I didn't hit the pillow and doze off first, (much to my sister's, a make-up artist) chagrin). I didn't have any favorite products aside from the normal chemical-laden teen face washes some believe to be "beneficial" to our skin. In reality, these products strip our skin of what they need and can cause nasty long-term effects such as cancer, hormone disruption and more. I also would doze off thinking of a million things I needed to do the next day and would sometimes snack while falling asleep to T.V. A routine that doesn't feel so pretty anymore. And one I'm not proud to recount.
I now take great care in my nighttime and morning routines, and its so much more about balance than it is simply about products.
However, I've learned, now that I'm no longer a "young adult", that product, when chosen correctly, can be the best investment for the health of my skin. And, finding products that are free of toxic chemicals, GMOs, gluten and more, are also a good investment in my health overall.
I am so thankful to Derma E (get a coupon here!) for sponsoring this post and sending me their Hydrating Night Creme. I am a HUGE fan of their products, I use their eye cream, hair & nail oil and lotion on the regular, so when I reached out asking them if they had something that could help my skin overnight as the weather started to dry out and as I started traveling to various climates for often, they hooked me up with this amazing little pot of beautifying and replenishing goodness. You can find their affordable, vegan and healthy skincare line at most Walgreen's.
Below is my Nighttime Routine that I live by to nurture my skin, my body and my mind, ensuring a restful slumber.
