These self care evening rituals will help you destress before bed and make your mornings even better.
– KEYS SOULCARE
Not everyone is a morning person. Despite the sun’s life-giving rays, our own circadian rhythms determine when we get a jolt of energy or find the need to rest. For some, that means settling into the night — i.e. finding the perfect nook to curl into with the latest best-seller or ringing up pals for a sunset happy hour. The good news is that soulcare is attainable at all hours of the day (and night).Today, we’re taking a moment to honor the nocturnals who thrive in the night. Ready to shine a little light into the darkness? Try these three soulcare rituals from dusk ‘til dawn.
1. Date-Night Makeup
Getting glammed up for an evening out on the town is an easy way to double down on soulcare and conjure up some confidence. With an abundance of playful looks, our Make You collection puts a colorful dose of magic right at your fingertips. Simple but stunning is always a vibe, so start with a glowy base using our Let Me Glow illuminating face serum to get your shine on. Nighttime is a great excuse to go bold, so build up a lush blush tint with Sheer Flush in any of the eight available shades. Be sure to top it all off with a head-turning highlight using Gleam On for full-body luminosity.
2. Rinse, Relax, Repeat
One of the best ways to spend your night? Washing away the day. Spending our morning hours tackling schedules and conquering goals means building up dirt, germs, and debris on our skin. Cleansing our bodies is essential and also works to clear our minds to welcome rest. To make the most out of your shower sesh, light your favorite soothing candle to set the mood. Spend a few moments allowing water to run over you before pampering your skin with the moisturizing blend of Manuka honey and healing nut butters found in our Renewing Body + Hand Wash. Rinse your newly hydrated skin before applying a generous amount of the Mind-Clearing Body Polish. Buff away stress and impurities to reveal a velvety-smooth version of you.
3. Self-Soothing Massage
End your day with a self-massage. Not only does this practice stimulate blood flow, but it can also release energetic blocks and tension. (Oh, and did we mention it also feels so good.). Ancient practices like Gua Sha have long been used to reset the mind and body of individuals, allowing them to feel spiritually cleared and balanced. Another great way to vibe higher? Dry brushing, which awakens your glow through exfoliation and relieves you of stress—just in time for bed. How? By removing layers of dead skin cells and other impurities from the skin’s surface while improving blood circulation, leaving you feeling and looking completely revitalized.
