There isn’t enough time in the day is there? We want to get everything done all at once before we get our vital sleep. Sometimes sleeping isn’t even a priority. I know I can completely relate, as a busy day for me will leave me with less than 5 hours sleep some nights. Obviously, this is terrible and I nearly ALWAYS end up crashing one day out of the week. All the missed sleep that week comes right back to bite me in the middle of the day, my skin will break out and I’ll feel even more stressed. This is why I came up with a night-time routine to stop feeling stressed out, relax and help me catch some major ZzZzzZZzzz.
How to stop feeling stressed out and get a perfect nights sleep
DRINK A DETOX TEA
After drinking detox tea, I always feel refreshed. That same feeling after coming out of a shower, is the same sensation I feel after drinking this tea. My favourite is the organic detox by Pukka. A detox tea contains Aniseed, fennel, cardamom and liquorice root, to help flush away those toxins while lightly catering to your sweet tooth. Infuse for 15 mins and drink up! you wont be feeling stressed out anymore!

I use the Clinique 3 Step system tailored for my own skin type, but what really makes the difference to my skin is my Magnitone LondonFacial Cleansing brush. I can clean my face, apply a facemask and more, but for some reason it still isn’t clean. When I use the Magnitone, I find that makeup and dirt slides right off my skin. You don’t realize how filthy your skin is until you see the dirt drip off onto the brush. It scrubs layers much deeper than your hands can get to making sure there is no left-over makeup or dirt left on your skin.
I also use the Bubble-gum flavour lip scrub by LUSH. Before using this I would constantly have dry or
chapped lips in the morning; I didn’t realise that a simple daily exfoliate could drastically improve the moisture and the colour of my lips. Following this I apply The Body Shop Grapeseed Glossing Serum to my hair.
I always multi mask as my skin type VARIES throughout my face. I tend to break out around my jaw, chin and forehead, which is why I like to use the Retexturing Rose Clay Mask by Origins. Due to my breakouts constantly causing acne scars, this mask is perfect for a deep clean and refining my skins
texture. In all the other areas, I love to apply the Chinese Ginseng and Rice Clarifying Polishing Mask by The Body Shop. This mask is perfect for providing a deep clean and a soft finish.
NIGHT TIME JAMZ

No routine is complete without the relaxing music to put me in the chill mood. I love throwback R&B Jamz to tailor to my night mood. Making a playlist on Apple Music or Spotify is easy! You should try it, plus it’s the perfect prep for your shower karaoke session . A sure thing way to stop feeling stressed out.
STEAMY SHOWER ALWAYS DOES THE TRICK
Do you remember always falling asleep after a hot bath as a child? Nothing has changed as an adult. The hot water is soothing all over and will leave you begging for your bed. Personally, I prefer a steamy shower. Baths are time consuming and as I mentioned before, there really isn’t enough time in the day.
I Love to use the two-day moisture shower oil by Sanctuary SpaCovet Garden. It has a slightly warming effect (if your showers aren’t hot enough already). When you rub it into your skin it feels like you’re having a massage. It’s heavenly for sure, and my skin feels silky smooth after using it.
It doesn’t quite last two days for me, as my skin is naturally dry and dehydrated. I found that the softness will last roughly 5-8 hours.
A COMFORTABLE MATTRESS
This is probably the most important part. You can’t get a good night’s rest in an uncomfortable bed! If your mattress is super uncomfortable (like mine) try laying on some fluffy pillows, or consider getting a new mattress. Leesa Mattress are five-star quality, fit for celebrities like Michael Phelps and of course the Kings and Queens you are! You should check them out!
SO THAT’S MY NIGHTTIME ROUTINE
