Having a few essentials within reach never goes astray. From hardworking multi-taskers to products that add a touch of luxury to the every day, these are the staples you’ll always find on my bedside.
A hydrating lip treatment
Oftentimes we neglect our lips when thinking about bigger-picture skincare. Along with regularly using an exfoliator (my favourite is homemade: equal parts brown sugar and coconut oil), I always have a nourishing lip treatment at arm’s reach and add a swipe before bed.
A multi-purpose oil
A drop of oil can be used as a final skincare step at night or added to your moisturiser for added glow but I also love using it as a luxurious cuticle treatment.
A decadent hand cream
There’s nothing better than a decadent hand cream. And where better to apply than just before bed? After massaging in a cuticle oil I’ll follow with a hand cream to nourish and hydrate the skin overnight.
A lightweight hydrating mist
Dousing the skin in a refreshing veil of moisture and locking in active ingredients from serums and moisturisers, I love a spritz of a hydrating mist to refresh the skin. You’ll find them on my desk, bedside and handbag. I keep them in the fridge for an extra level of refreshment — that cool pop on the skin before bed can really relax your skin.
A silk sleep mask
I love a silk eye mask and often use one to help me get to sleep. Especially when travelling you’ll always find one in my carry-on — it’s an incredibly relaxing tool to help me decompress.
Carafe of water
Hydration is vital to optimal skin health, I always keep a carafe of water by my bedside for when I wake up — drinking a cup of water before you start the day helps get your skin ahead before you’ve even stepped out of bed. Now days there are so many beautiful designs to choose from, meaning it can become a statement piece as well as something practical!
