We have been following the get unready with me trend all year long and absolutely love it. This trend goes well beyond just having a night time skincare routine and addresses our mental and physical health in a variety of different ways. Whether you're doing this every night or just once in a while it will have lasting impacts on both your mental and physical health and is an important way to stay connected to your body, mind and spirit before you rest your weary mind for the evening.
The process of getting unready will be different for you as it is different for anyone who has embraced this wonderful trend, but there are some simple things you should keep in mind as you plan your routine. Taking into account these simple things will allow you to have a routine that is both soothing and comforting for you, but also fits your lifestyle in the best possible way.
Truthfully there are really no rules to the way you get unready at night, but if you take a moment to really think what will be most beneficial to you at night you will get the most out of this routine. Here are some simple things that you can do to make sure your routine is right for you.
1.) Find a relaxing place to walk through your routine. For some people it is in the bathroom in front of a mirror and for others it's in your bedroom with some mood lighting and maybe a candle. Whatever will make you feel comfortable and warm while you're performing the steps of this process is what you should do. This might require a little trial and error to find the best place that will keep you relaxed and give you a sense of calm as you spend quality time with yourself in the evening.
2.) Experiment to find the best cleanser for your skincare needs. We recommend our Vegan Daily Facial Cleanser which can actually be applied in the morning and in the evening to keep your skin looking fresh and youthful. Depending on how much makeup you wear throughout the day and what level of activity you partake may determine which cleanser is right for you. No matter what you choose, you need to have one that works.
3.) Practice gratitude. The process of getting unready with me is one that not only focuses on physical attributes, but also your mental health. Experts say that one of the best things you can do for your mental health is to practice gratitude and that is why this is a step you do not want to skip. If you can practice gratitude each night before you go to bed you will be in a much better head space when you wake up in the morning and you will be feeling full of love and light.
There are lasting benefits to this trend that go well beyond your evening routine. You will feel the joy in your heart and the freshness in your skin if you spend time to go through this process even once a week. This practice goes well beyond a good skincare routine, which is necessary of course to keep your skin looking youthful and fresh. This process will help you create a deeper meaning to your evening and when you hit the pillow you will feel ready to let your mind, body and soul rest and get the sleep that they all need.
