Sadly, I’m not one of those women that likes to spend time on myself before going to bed. Showering is a nightly ritual but beyond that there is conflict. It’s not unusual for me to go to sleep with makeup on or not properly moisturized. booooo! The problem is of course that I need to do that much more before walking out the door the next morning.
I’ve had ups and downs but I currently do a night time skin routine right after dinner clean up. The kids are generally content and involved with eachother and I can catch some stolen moments sink side. This avoids the inevitable cycle –>kids in bed –> procure snacks –> jump on my bed –> engage laptop –> research, read and write –> fall asleep many hours later.
Staying up late makes you value every single extra second in bed in the morning that much more. It’s a much calmer day when I’ve properly prepped before bed. My skin looks better, feels softer, and it’s very comforting to know that while I slept my skin was resting and breathing with great products before another hectic day.
A while back I received a sample of DERMELECT Self-Esteem Beauty Sleep Serum. I had high hopes for this product because of the claim that it would reduce visible pore size (which is my biggest skin concern). The result was ok, of course it was temporary but my skin looked even, lines and pores did look smaller. It comes in an ultra cool twist bottle. The formula is very liquidy which caught me buy surprise. Generally, serums with this consistency come with a dropper versus the pump. I kind of prefer this pump and there’s nothing to lose and there’s no chance for contamination.
