Nightly routines

We all have them and we all hate them.

Our nightly routine. As women we have so much more to do then men do.

Although I hate doing it, I'm pretty religious about my nightly routine and hate when there is a night that I can't do it.

Here's mine:

1. Change into pj's
2. Put on a headband to keep hair off my face
3. Wash face
4. Apply astringent (I swear this is the secret that kept me from breaking out - for me, it totally works)
5. Take vitamins, two melatonin and any other medications necessary (ibruprofen, Rx... etc)
6. Take out contacts
7. Brush teeth
8. Grab laptop, glass of water, book and planner
9. Head to bed
10. Write the next day's blog post (yep, I'm half asleep when I write these)
11. Read

Then it's....


What's your nightly routine?

I have read about alot of morning routines, but not night ones! Good post idea! Here is mine:

- take contacts out
- remove eye make up
- wash face
- take melatonin and other prescriptions I am on
- brush & flosh teeth
- lay in bed & read
- lights out!

I don't really have a "routine" some nights I turn off my computer and go straight to bed, some nights I read before bed, some nights I watch TV with Eric.

EVERY night I:

take out my contacts
brush my teeth
change into pj's

but never in the exact same order :) And I'll admit I'm REALLY bad about washing my face/makeup off before bed. Whoops!

I never wash my face. Am I going to be arrested by the Clean Police? I, like pinky up there, am BAD at being a girl.

Mine is (and it's funny how many of us wear contacts!):

- Get glass of water
- Write Blog Post
- Pee
- Take out contacts
- Brush teeth
- Pee
- Read myself to sleep

My bedtime routine is always so bad, lol. I'm either watching TV or on the computer right until I need to go to bed. My basic routine is:

-Take Dutch out for his last bathroom time of the night
-Brush my teeth
-Grab my Kindle and Dutch and head to bed.
After in bed for a while, wonder if the front door is locked and the oven is off. So I usually get up to double-check. (The door is ALWAYS locked and the oven is ALWAYS off. Sigh.)
-Read until I'm sleepy

I usually take a shower earlier in the night (7:30/8:00) so I wash my fash/change into pj's after that.

I need a better bedtime routine, though! :) Fun post idea.

I have almost the exact same routine! About two times a week, I use my microdermabrasion brush and it helps a lot too!
