I must admit that my before bed routine, is actually pretty extensive and probably overkill, but I feel like bed time is the time to restore everything to its rightful condition before I break it all down during hte day. LOL!
After I have brushed my teeth, taken my makeup off etc., I get into bed and do the following:
Step 1: Lips -- Moisturize. Currently I am using some sort of petroleum jelly product but my all time favorite lip moisturizer is this one from Burt's Bees.
Step 3: Nails -- My nails are in terrible shape. I bite them, they ate brittle and peel, so they take a lot of care. I found this wonderful product from Sally Hansen called VitaSurge Growth Gel, which promises longer nails in in 5 days, and I have to say that it really works. So I make a point of applying this nightly.
Step 4: Cuticles. I bite these too :( so a good cuticle cream is a must. Burt's Bees Lemon Butter cuticle cream is the best! It hydrates and repairs and smells really good too.
Step 5: Hands. Hand cream is next. I try to put it on throughout the day but am not always successful. And by the end of a day filled with hand washing, dish washing, paper shuffling my hands are really dry. Keilh's Unusually Rich But Not Greasy At All hand cream is my fav at the moment.
Step 6: Feet -- Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize. That is all!
