What Our Chief Content Officer Does Every Night to Streamline Her Morning
Here at PureWow, it’s our priority to spread positivity and utility to our readers. In other words, “elevate the everyday.” No one exemplifies this more than our chief content officer, Mary Kate McGrath. Tasked with a seemingly never-ending to-do list, Mary Kate has completely hectic days. Between back-to-back meetings, managing the daily flow of PureWow’s content and diving headfirst into Lego instruction manuals for her two little boys, it’s a mystery how she gets it all done. Until now, that is. Ahead, Mary Kate shares her exact nighttime routine that gives her a leg up come morning.
Prep for the Next Day (As Much As Possible)
“I clean the kitchen and sorta-kinda-not-really-but-
*Mentally* Plan Outfits
“I check the weather and mentally plan out two options for outfits the next day so I don’t have to do it in the morning and can save that brainpower for answering inane kid questions like, ‘Why are you insisting I wear underwear?’ and ‘What happened to the dinosaurs?’”
Rely on Easy-to-Use Products
The last thing anyone wants to do after a tiring day is spend an additional 20 minutes applying multiple skin-care products. (OK, maybe you like that sort of thing, but we’re talking efficiencies here.) If your day is similar to Mary Kate’s, reach for Elizabeth Arden Retinol Ceramide Capsules. Not only do these little gems contain a perfectly pre-measured single dose(that means no thinking on your part) but they actually protect the retinol inside by keeping out light and air. This makes the formula super potent and effective, so your skin will look radiant and fresh.
Practice Gentle Yoga
“I do a series of easy yoga moves on the floor right before I get into bed—nothing intense, but a form of sun salutations. I feel like it’s my body’s last gasp before completely giving into my down comforter.”
