  • So next week I'm doing a major giveaway, so don't forget to subscribe and keep an eye out

  • for next weeks video for your chance to win something super duper amazing!

  • Hey guys, it's Wengie, welcome back to my channel, or welcome if you're new! I hope you guys are having

  • an awesome day! Today I wanted to do a night routine for you guys, and you guys have been requesting this for

  • the longest time. I'm really excited because this video was partnered with Michael Todd, thank you guys so

  • much for sponsoring this video, I'll be sharing with you guys their Soniclear cleansing brush. Other thing you

  • guys always ask me about is my bralette, I've linked it down below. So I've included some night routine hacks,

  • DIYs, and tips in there. Of course, this is not a night routine I do every night, cause gosh who has time for

  • that? If you guys aren't part of my family already, I encourage you guys to join, there's a subscribe button

  • floating on screen, or if you're on a mobile device it is down below. And if you guys are part of my family,

  • you know the drill, let's get this video to 15,000 thumbs up, that would make me SO excited.

  • Let's get straight on to the video! My hair is caught in my eyelash.

  • The first thing I like to do when I get home is to change my clothes, and yes, that means no pants.

  • Once I'm comfortable, I basically spend my night either editing, answering emails, or doing some sort of work.

  • And a great hack to get me through this time is to use scents that promote concentration and memory,

  • like lemon, peppermint, and rosemary to help me stay focused and wake me up.

  • You can either brew a tea for some hydrating aromatherapy, or burn a candle, or use scent sticks at

  • your desk. Scent associations can help you kick yourself into gear as you start to link this particular

  • smell to studying or working.

  • Now all this hard work is making me hungry. So it's off to grab a snack.

  • A really healthy snack idea is to chop up some carrots and celery, and if you're craving chips actually just try

  • baking a pita bread until it's crispy. A great hack is to serve these nommies in a place like a muffin tray.

  • It has all the perfect compartments for each little snack and a place for dips.

  • Beetroot hummus is actually much lower in calories than plain hummus, and you can also try

  • other low calorie dips, like this pumpkin one. Check the labels for the lowest calorie dip if you're getting ready for

  • summer. By spooning out your dips first, it means you won't overeat and finish the whole tub.

  • Yep, you're welcome.

  • My fav thing to do while munching is to, of course, watch Netflix and chill. No, no, not that kind of chill,

  • just Netflix and chilling with the food. And if you're stuck on a show to watch, consider the documentary or

  • foreign sections, I found some great Japanese shows like Atelier and Terrorist House that I have loved just

  • as much as western shows. It's also a great way to experience other cultures as well.

  • For days when I want to save time, I love to remove my makeup using a cleansing brush, like this one by

  • Michael Todd, and this is the Soniclear cleansing brush, and this both removes my makeup, cleanses, and

  • exfoliates all in one step. So it's perfect for lazy days.

  • Their [?] cleanser is also super gentle and moisturizing. The brush head is antibacterial and

  • really easy to wash under running water, and the whole brush is actually waterproof.

  • So you can use it while you shower for extra efficiency points.

  • When I have time, I love to pamper myself with a mask, and a super easy DIY mask is to actually use honey.

  • Honey is naturally antibacterial so it's great for acne treatment and prevention. And it's also full of

  • antioxidants which really helps with aging, and it's also extremely moisturizing and soothing, so it gives you a

  • natural glow, and it's actually super budget friendly. And I hate it when honey sticks to my spoon. So a great hack

  • is to dip it first in coconut oil, which is also amazing for you skin by the way, and then when you spoon the honey

  • out, it'll just slip right out. That way you're not wasting any honey that's sticking on the spoon and you can

  • accurately measure the recipe out. And plus, it's so much easier to clean. You can mix different ingredients

  • into honey depending on your skin concerns as well. So if you're suffering from acne, try mixing two teaspoons

  • of honey with half a teaspoon of cinnamon, for dry skin try mixing one teaspoon of honey with one teaspoon of

  • avocado, and one teaspoon of plain yogurt. And for sensitive skin, try two teaspoons of honey with

  • one teaspoon of aloe vera gel, and finally if you want to brighten your complexion, try two teaspoons of honey

  • with half a teaspoon of lemon juice.

  • And then all you need to do is use a brush and brush it onto your skin and leave it there for 30 minutes for super

  • soft skin. And while I'm waiting for the mask, I want to show you guys this great mood hack.

  • And it is to just simply write down three things you're grateful for every day, and also three reflections or

  • learnings that you discovered about yourself, just some reflection time. And just by doing this everyday you'll

  • experience that you're happier, without even changing anything else in your life. You have to try this even just

  • for a month, you can even tweet it to me, my twitter is @Wengie and I'd love to hear all the things you're

  • grateful for and all your thoughts.

  • After I wash my mask off, it is skin care time. For the first step is toner, and I absolutely love using this

  • herb water toner on just a cotton pad, it helps refresh my skin after the mask and also wipes away any

  • addition debris I've missed on my skin. You can see how well the cleanser worked because there is nothing

  • on my skin. So after this I take some SK-II essence [?] and pat it onto my skin until it absorbs.

  • This actually really helps brighten my complexion and I notice when I stop using it, like my skin just looks a bit

  • more dull than normal.

  • Now finally, I'm using this Shu Uemura oil as a way to moisturize my skin in winter. I love using

  • oils because it's just great for your skin, and it also gives me enough slip to give myself a quick face

  • massage. Press against your face, working your way down your neck, and then push on the pressure points

  • behind your ears down to your collar bone to help flush the bloating and toxins away from your face.

  • I have linked my face massage tutorial as well if you're interested in a full on face massage.

  • Did you know that blue base lighting can make it harder to relax and fall asleep? So swap your nighttime lights

  • for warmer tones, like this warm yellow one I have, fairy lights, or using candles.

  • Also your phone screen can emit the blue light as well, so going on your phone before bed can actually

  • contribute to insomnia. So if you have trouble sleeping, try swapping out your phone for an actual

  • physical book which is gentler on your eyes, and also helps you fall asleep faster when it gets,

  • you know, a little bit boring. Mia, do you like reading too? And I love winding down with my kitties on my bed.

  • It is literally the best experience ever.

  • Another great tip for relaxation is to put a few drops of lavender or jasmine scent and hang them near your

  • pillow for a relaxing sleep, it even helps you toss and turn less during the night. For an even better sleep,

  • a great tip is to give yourself an eye massage. By using an electronic like myself, or use your fingers.

  • And this helps reduce your eye strain cause we're on our phones and computers all day, so it;s really great to

  • de-stress the eyes. Eye massages can improve circulation around the eye area which reduces bloating

  • and dark circles, which is a total bonus as well when you wake up in the morning your eyes will look much

  • clearer. So goodnight guys, and sweet dreams.

  • Let me know which is your favourite hack or tip that you found out today on this video,

  • I would love to know. It's been so fun chilling with you guys, bye guys, love you!
