Hello everyone! Hope you are all having a wonderful day whatever you may be up to! For today’s post I’m going to be writing about something I’ve wanted to write about for a very long time-My Evening Relaxtion Routine. I am definetly one of those people who love to cozy up for the evening and give myself a good pamper. I try to do a full self care relaxation routine at least once a week (although sometimes I find myself doing this everyday because I love it so much!). This routine is what I’ve been doing a lot in the summer when I don’t have to get up as early and can spend more time in the evening to myself. Also, I sometimes only do a few of these things or even just one of these in the evening, it is super simple to customize your routine just by picking what sounds the most relaxing to you. Alright, without further ado-let’s get on to the post!
So, my evening routine usually begins after dinner. The first thing I like to do is a short evening yoga routine. I’ve only recently gotten into yoga, but I love it! I use the YouTube channel Yoga with Adriene which I absolutely love and has a very wide range of videos that vary in difficulty level, amount of time, or type of yoga. I definetly do not do yoga everynight, and sometimes do it earlier in the day instead but I had to include it in this post because it is essential to my relaxtion!
After that the next thing I do is get into the bath. Even in the summer I love to take a nice relaxing warm bath. For my bath lighting is huge to me. I like to create low, soft lighting as I find this the most relaxing. To do this I light a candle in my bathroom and turn off the lights. I do not mind it being super dark, but if you do, you can always light several candles or use a small plug in light to add a bit more light. After I’ve set the lighting for my bath I move onto the bath itself. I almost always go for bubbles rather than a bath bomb (although I do love a good bath bomb) and typically use a bath and body works shower gel for bubble bath or the Zoella Beauty Drench Me product.
After I’m out of the bath I like to moisturize using again a bath and body works body cream or the Zoella Beauty Quench Me. It is super important to moisturize your skin, especially if it is exposed to the sun, and should be done once a day (though I usually only remember like once a week lol). After I’m all moisturized and ready to go I hop into a cozy pair of pajamas and maybe some fuzy socks if I’m cold.
Once I’m fully dressed I usually start to do my nails. I typically do my nails once a week and find the evenings to be the perfect time to do them. I turn on some YouTube, a movie, or TV and get going on my nails and toes (I don’t do my toes as often as the polish usually lasts longer). While I’m doing this I throw on a face mask (I like to use sheet masks like these) and take this time to fully take care of my skin and nails.
Lastly I move on to the end of my evening. By this point I might want to grab dessert whether it’s healthier like the banana ice cream from my Vegetarian Summer Recipes post, or indulging in my favortive flavor of ice cream or a piece of cake. While I munch on my dessert I usually catch up on my favorite YouTubers, or if I’m already caught up I move on to Netflix to watch The Office or a movie.
After I’ve watched a good amount of YouTube and Netflix I get tucked up into bed and enjoy and good nights rest!
