A Bedside Beauty Routine
First things first, I'll slather my lips in a hydrating balm or multi-purpose cream like the Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Cream which is a bit of a skin hero. Doubling up as a lip balm, nail cream and healer of any dry patches, it's a winter essential. Lip balm wise, the Burts Bees Ultra Conditioning Lip Stick* has been my go-to, it's easy to apply, rich and really helps keep my lips protected overnight, but if I want something a little more thick and luxurious, the Lanolips Dry Skin Salve* is my hero for it's thick, balmy texture that sits on the lips, working it's magic as I sleep. In the lotion department, I have a full-size pump bottle of the Lanolips Allover Everywhere Cream* which is my favourite bedtime pamper product that nourishes and helps keep my skin soft as the cold weather dries everything up. Next up, I always spritz my face with Caudalie Beauty Elixir, my go-to beauty product (that is also a handbag and desk essential). The fresh scent adds an extra layer of moisture and glow, locking in my serum and oil for suped-up hydrated skin. I love to give my nails a mini treatment in bed as I find the creams and oils I apply can work overnight and at the moment, to keep my cuticles intact, I'm using the Mavala Cuticle Oil. A little goes along way with this, so I run the applicator over my nails and let it sink in.
Next up and the last step in my bedside beauty routine is creating a relaxing, tranquil atmosphere to helps me switch off and fall into a deep sleep. The This Works Sleep Range is one of my absolute favourites, the Pillow Spray and Sleep Balm are always on my bedside table and come with me where-ever I go. First things first, I spritz a light mist of the Deep Sleep Pillow Spray over my duvet and underneath my pillows (I find this causes blemishes if I spray it directly where I lie my face) and the lavender scent is so calming and relaxing. The Sleep Balm is an added boost of sleepiness and I rub this onto my wrists, temples and under my nose.
