Salem’s Night Routine for a Healthy Body and Mind

If there’s one thing our Partnerships + Experiences Manager has inspired the rest of us to do, it’s to build a better evening routine. Between making time to care for her skin to creating a cozy atmosphere, read on to see just how Salem ends her day.

For me, a good nighttime routine is really important, especially when it comes to skincare. Although March has arrived, the winter season has left my skin in need of some extra TLC. I love following a luxurious ritual before I head off to sleep, allowing my skin to absorb all of the nutrients in my favorite products. 

To start, I usually take a shower using the Costa Brazil Sabonete Líquido - Nutrient-Rich Hand and Body Wash. It contains hyaluronic acid and helps a ton with hydration: something I need help with as someone with rather dry skin. Once in a while, I’ll opt for a bath instead and spoil myself with the natureofthings Skin-Replenishing Vitamin Bath. I’ll wash my hair, take some time to enjoy the warmth of the water, and then lather my skin with some of my favorite body butters.

The next step in my routine is my favorite part. First, I prep my face with Costa Brazil’s Óleo De Limpeza Para a Face - Hydrating Face Cleanser. I always make sure to start my routine when my face is still wet from the shower, so that I can really seal in my serums! On the days that my skin is feeling super dry, I use a technique called slugging, which is basically the process of covering your face with petroleum jelly and leaving it overnight. Just be mindful that derms don’t recommend this technique for those with oily or acne-prone skin, and those with combination skin should avoid slugging their entire face (sometimes, I’ll just dab petroleum jelly in certain areas!). 

While all this is happening, I’ll have already turned on my Fellow Stagg EKG Electric Kettle and will make my nightly tea courtesy of The Qi. They make whole flower tea that is not only delicious, but looks so cool in a mug. Then, I’ll settle into the couch to watch one of my favorite shows (Abbott Elementary, The White Lotus, and Kaleidoscope at the moment), and then it’s time to get into bed. Usually, I’ll journal, but I would be lying if I said I didn’t sometimes hop on my phone and browse social media for a few minutes as well. But we’re not all perfect right?! Next stop: dreamland.
