The Rituals Our Beauty Editor Relies On for a Good Night’s Sleep

PureWow’s senior beauty editor, Jenny Jin, is a master multitasker. Not only does she churn out article after article but she also fields her coworkers’ countless questions: “Do I really need separate skin routines for morning and night?” “Is double cleansing actually worth it?” “What’s the deal with gua sha?” Jenny is a wealth of beauty and skin care knowledge, so when we had the chance to catch a glimpse of her nightly rituals, we jumped at it. Have a pen and paper handy?

Banning The Blue Light

“My nighttime ritual always starts with reading a good book—right now it’s David Sedaris’s Calypso, which has me cackling to myself. Reading provides a cue for me to power off any screens and break the habit of scrolling through social media before bed. Admittedly, once in a while I end up reading way past my bedtime, as was the case with Jenny Han’s To All the Boys series.”

Nourishing The Skin

If you’re like Jenny and make it a rule to never let your skin fall to the wayside, then Elizabeth Arden Retinol Ceramide Capsules are just for you. We know what you’re thinking: “Uh, isn’t retinol going to dry out my skin?” Quite the opposite, actually. These retinol capsules are unlike any other in that they feature moisture-boosting ceramides and are specially formulated to help protect against dryness. Oh, and did we mention these are pre-measured into a single dose so there’s no guesswork?

Relaxing The Mind

“I always take a few whiffs of a calming essential oil or spray. I love Fig+Yarrow’s Moon Mist, as well as Stress Check Breathe In from a company called This Works. Spritz it liberally into the air and inhale for three counts (Mississippily!) and exhale for four to calm your senses.”

Easing Muscle Tension

“Finally, I do some myofascial release massages on areas that tend to be tight, typically around my neck, back and shoulders. It’s a very gentle but sustained stretch that alleviates the tension and stiffness I often feel in these spots.”
