Bedtime truly is one of my fav times! Also one that can get too easily neglected. It’s time to bring some balance back cause when I feel good life is SO good!
Creating a bedtime routine is still one that is a work in progress. Which is ok! I had the opportunity tonight of time. Which let’s be real, a bedtime bathroom routine does not take that much time, it really is super easy! When you get out of your head!
Before I got in the shower I stopped. To admire myself in the mirror. I’ve learned to love my body. All of it. Stretch marks, c-section and various surgery scars… have made me the beautiful woman I am! I took my time. Which took maybe 10 minutes more than normal.
I have a few favourite products that my skin really likes! Tonight before my shower, I did a little bit more than what I would consider an “everynight bedtime routine”. I filled the sink with some steaming hot water and as it was filling, I added 2 drops each of doTERRA Tea Tree and Balance! Tea Tree is amazing on my skin, especially for any pimples, I can feel it beneath the skin, put a drop on top, depending on the severity lol and repeat if necessary, it works SO good! Balance, well one of my first oily loves, it does just that, Balance! It’s so grounding.
After steaming my face under a nice large towel, I used the Eminence Strawberry Rhubarb Dermafoliant. It’s very neat, it comes out as a powder that you add as much water as necessary to use on your skin. My sink is SO super soft after using (and helps deal with any black heads too!).
After showering I use either doTERRA Verage Face Serum or Face Lotion with 2 drops of Yarrow|POM or Eminence Rosehip Firming Oil or Moisturizer each also with Yarrow|POM. Tonight I chose the Rosehip Firming Oil with 2 drops Yarrow|POM.
Can I also mention my Humble deodorant!Natural and oh my goodness it works without providing any discomfort to my under arms! Sometimes DIY makes sense, others it is worth paying every dollar and cent!
My skin feels so soft, hydrated and after saging my room and starting the diffuser it’s time for bed! Can you see the light blue tinge, ah the hydrating power of Yarrow|POM!
Before going to sleep, I like to let my thoughts go… release them from my mind to create a blank slate for the next day. I’m working at this in the kitchen too at night, cause man it feels good, again back to clear surfaces. It’s when my mind flows best, when I also love to blog, a love of writing that I’ve had for years, back to my daughters age honestly. That I let go and it was a big part that I am so happy is back! This is a platform I feel I can truly be myself and thoroughly enjoy.
One of the last things I do before bed… I love my dailygreatness journal planner! Its how I start and finish my day and has helped me shift my mindset in so many ways! When we sit down and take even 3 minutes – it can honestly take as little as this! Really be honest with yourself. Let your pen flow on the paper. This beauty had helped me brain dump at night to allow an easier, graceful transition into the night and next day. I highly recommend this planner to any mom, business woman, dad, business man, human being on earth! This planner has the entire year, with a daily page, monthly summary, 90 day review and so much more! It’s my 2nd year with a dailygreatness and I am being so much more purposeful with it this year! 🙏 Click on the link above to save 10% on your own! You are welcome 💫
