You spend hours and hours watching this kinds of videos on YouTube.. Let’s be honest you love them. I don’t blame you. Taking care of yourself, your body is what 2019 is all about.
In the mornings, you spend one hour getting ready. This can be rushed to 15 minutes if you must.. but on average one hour. If this is how long it takes you to start your day, why do you just go to bed without any care? This stops now. Here is your night time routine:
Take off your make up. Find a cruelty-free nice-scented beauty line that will wash off the day in good faith. Start by applying some makeup remover. Take it all off. The eyebrows and everything ( I know how much you hate that). But leave your face naked for you to see. Not the world.. just you. After all loving who you are is your aim right?
Remember that Clarisonic you spend so much money on? Use it to rejuvenate your skin. Force all the dirt and sweat from your pores out. After all you have become one of those gym rats now haven’t you? We both remember how working out makes your skin if you forget to properly exfoliate. Dance a little while doing that. You should be having fun.
FACE MASK TIME!
Take your pick.. do you feel like having a peel off mask? Hydrating mask? deep-cleaning mud mask? The world is your oyster… well actually the box full of facemarks is. Use whatever you feel like. Today I felt like a deep hydrating mask was what I needed.
By now you surly are starting to get tired – you see taking care of oneself is sometimes tiring. Despite the bright lights of the bathroom reflecting off all the whites around, you are starting to feel the need of you pillow pressed against your face. Soon. Hold on a little longer…
while that facemark is on, brush your teeth. Use that electric toothbrush that tells you exactly how long you need to last in each side. Use the app. Everything is more fun once you are tracking it. Brush carefully. All the sides. And once you are done attack the tongue. This is the most disgusting yet satisfying part of the whole process. The tongue. Where you see all the slimy things you’ve eaten today and how pretty light-pink your tongue gets afterwards. Go as far as you can to the back of the tongue. Thats where all the bad things are. Tomorrow morning your breath will thank you.
FLUSH. Wiggle your butt a little as you wiggle the thread through your teeth.
Mouth wash. Enough said.
Moisturise your feet. People always seem to forget the existence of their feet. but not you. You enjoy putting a deep moisturising mask on your feet and then putting socks on. Tomorrow in the morning right before you’ll wake. When you are in between life and dream land.. when you are contemplating hitting the snooze bottom even before the alarm made any sound – you will remove those socks and cares the bottom of your feet on your legs and right then you will be thankful. Thankful to have taken the time to moisturise the dark corners of your body everyone else seem to forget.
Your facemark must be dry now – make your way to the toilet and remove it. make weird faces at the mirror as you do so. Slowly peel it off. Feels good doesn’t it.
It’s pretty late now. Now your eyes feels heavy, but my love just a little longer. You are really nearly done.
Apply on a C vitamin serum. If not for the present, do it for the future. To slow the harsh treatment of time. Let the C vitamin rejuvenate your skin day by day and by the time you are in your 30s you won’t look at day after 20. I mean you already have a baby face right.. so let’s get a baby skin too.
Apply a thick layer of moisturiser. You may feel like your skin doesn’t need it – doesn’t want it. it has already so much from before. But no. Don’t let that fool you. Apply the cream even if you feel like you don’t need it. Because my love no one is above a night moisturising cream.
Lastly you’ve made it this far. Drink a tall glass of cold water, put on some lip balm and sleep my love. Dream of the things you’ll be chasing once you wake. But for the next 6 hours go to sleep and make a plan for when you wake up.
