This post is on Simplifying Your Nighttime Routine is in partnership with Olay. As always all thoughts are my own.
Do you ever skip your nightly beauty routine? I must admit, some nights I really want to just go to bed. The last thing in the world I want to do is go through my nighttime routine. Knowing what my face will have to deal with the next day, and potentially the next couple weeks, always gets me back out of bed and in the bathroom washing my face.
Here are a few tips for making your nighttime routine work for you!
How To Simplify Your Nighttime Routine
Get ready for bed earlier:
Sometimes my husband has to work late. The nights I dread the most are those where I wait to get ready for bed with him. All I want to do is sleep, especially if it’s the weekend! We should go to bed but we usually watch a show or two together before heading to bed.
I’ve learned that it’s best time to wash my face is right after I put my boys down and well before I’m too tired. If I am exhausted and have to wash my face the splash of water to my face usually wakes me up a bit. Not ideal when you have a hard time falling asleep to begin with.
Use products you’re excited about:
Seriously. If you use products you’re excited about then you almost crave them. The soft feeling, the way they smell, how they make your skin feel, etc. You get the idea. The Olay Daily Facials are awesome because they make my face feel so clean, and they smell great too. I always make sure I wear SPF no matter what time of year, and in winter I tend to wear a creamier face cream on my cheeks, like the Olay Total Effects 7-in-1 Moisturizer, the cold winter wreaks havoc on my cheeks.
Be willing to try new things:
A few months ago I told you about the Olay Eyes Deep Hydrating Eye Gel. It’s cooling, fast absorbing gel instantly hydrates and plumps the under-eye. To say I’m obsessed with it would be an understatement. I’ve used it morning and night ever since and I think it will always be in my routine. I really cannot recommend it enough.
If I weren’t willing to try something new then, I wouldn’t have realized how life changing this very product is. I’m seriously excited to use this product morning and night, and I think you’ll love it too.
