Relax with Your Evening Beauty Routine:
Your beauty routine does not have to be a chore! For me, it is quite the contrary. My evening beauty routine is actually very relaxing and I look forward to it every day. As a busy stay-at-home Mom of a 19-month old and a Preschooler, my evening beauty routine is my major "me time" of the day. It is time to de-stress, unwind, and do a little bit of pampering. 

With all of that said, I don't want my evening beauty routine to be too complicated or too time-consuming. I want to use gentle, yet effective, products that do good things for my skin. As an Aveeno Ambassador, I get a chance to try out all of the new and great products from Aveeno. I am really enjoying their new Ultra Calming Nourishing Night Cream. Aveeno encourged me to share my current relaxation routine in the evenings featuring this night cream. So, I am excited to share that with ya'll today!
Your skin's natural renewal process occurs at night while you sleep. That's why a good night's rest is so important for your skin. Without it, you could end up with more sensitive and irritated skin. Before I share my personal beauty routine, I would love to share dermatologist Jeanie Downie, M.D. 's essential nighttime tips to waking up with clearer, healthier-looking skin. 

Essential Nighttime Skincare Tips:
1. Power Through the Wash: No matter how tired you are before bed, use a gentle cleanser to wash away the makeup and debris that accumulate during the day. 

2. Get Calm: Moisturize your face and neck with a quality night cream like the new AVEENO Ultra-Calming Nourishing Night Cream. It contains Active Naturals feverfew (soothes red, dry, and irritated skin) and oats (nourish and strengthen skin) to reduce the appearance of red, dry skin. 

3. Sleep Well: Try to get 7 to 8 hours of quality sleep at night to give your skin time to fully restore itself. (I fully admit that I need to work on this! I am lucky to get 7).

A Relaxing Evening Routine with Aveeno's NEW Ultra Calming Nourishing Night Cream:
In addition to following the tips mentioned above, I wanted to share a few more details about my evening beauty routine. A relaxing evening for me starts immediately after getting the kids down for bed. I must admit, as much as I enjoy their bedtime stories and snuggles, I am certainly ready for some "me time" when I am finished! If I am really going to relax and dive into my beauty routine, I must unwind first. I tend to either have a glass of wine in the evenings or a cup of tea, depending on my mood. I will either listen to some music, watch a show, catch up on some e-mails or blogging, or simply sit out on our front porch or back porch while enjoying my wine or tea. Of course my husband is always near by doing the same thing. 

Next, I head upstairs to put on my jammies, do my evening beauty routine (see tips above), and get ready for bed. If I am feeling motivated for a "spa-like" experience, I turn on our Sonos in my bedroom with some relaxing music and light a few candles. Then I put on my jammies, wash my face, apply my skincare products, and put on some body moisturizers. After that, I do some reading in bed and then go to sleep. 

Adding Aveeno's NEW Ultra Calming Nourishing Night Cream has been a fabulous addition to this routine. My skin is classic combination skin with it being more normal-dry in the colder months and normal-oily in the warmer months. This certainly makes it tricky when trying to choose a moisturizer. Also, my skin is somewhat sensitive and prone to monthly breakouts. Well, I just love using this Ultra Calming Nourishing Night Cream! The texture is fabulous. It is rich and nourishing. Yet, it feels incredibly light and non-greasy on the skin. It absorbs quickly and feels light as air. I love how nourished, soft, and plumped my skin looks the next morning after using this night cream. Plus, I really enjoy how gentle it is. I look forward to continuing to use this night cream! 

What is your evening beauty routine? Is it a time of day that you look forward to like I do? 

As always, thanks for reading!
