So the kids are fed, brushed their teeth, bathed and are in bed. You have tidied up the living room and the kitchen, perhaps you have even promised the other half some jigi-jigi (or whatever slang you both use for it). While he’s eagerly waiting for you in the bed, you have to take off your make-up. But you are tired. Still a million things to do, do not worry. We have made a list of five simple bed time make up routine for you because we all know we shouldn’t really be sleeping with our makeups on.
Step 1: Double clean. use an oil base cleanser ( or coconut oil) to remove make-up build-ups. Eyes, lips and cheek. Then use a soap/hot towel treatment to remove and clear the pores.
Step 2: Apple Cider Vinegar treatment to clean, exfoliate and tone (one product that does three steps – kit-chin!)
Step 3: Moisturise the face, not forgetting the neck and ears!
Step 4: Seal with a gel (oily skin). For dry skin, repeat step 3 after allowing the first coat to dry and skip to step 5.
Step 5: moisturise your body focusing on the thighs, bum, tummy, hands and feet. This areas tends to dry up quickly hence they need constant moisturising.
*Optional I like to sleep with a lip gloss on. It keeps my lips moisturise and makes them look plum the next morning. I also like to apply a little oil/cream to my eyelashes. For growth and to prevent them falling off.
