What I Really Do Before Bed

What I Really Do Before Bed, the Evening Bedtime Routine of Elizabeth Dehn | Beauty Bets
I’m a night owl. It’s a blessing and a curse. My energy crashes around 4pm (when my appetite also takes over) and inconveniently picks back up around 10pm. Suddenly, I realize that the day is over and I hardly did a thing! Okay, not really, but it’s at this point in the night that I have to put myself to bed instead of starting something new. Like organizing my beauty closet. Or watching a movie. Or having a what-does-it-all-mean?! discussion with my boyfriend. I recently learned that, according to Ayurvedic principles, my primary dosha makes me extra productive between the hours of 10pm and 2am. Since that’s totally unrealistic if I want to get up at a reasonable hour, I start my bedtime routine early. For my go-to skincare products and favorite unwinding rituals (including the racy sort—it’s good for you!), pop over to Clementine Daily where I’m serving as guest editor all month. Sweet dreams . . .
