We all know that actions become habits and habits become our lifestyle. Exercise is the perfect example, doing it sporadically not only means that you probably dread the idea of it but also makes it less likely that you’ll actually do any, however, once you get into a routine of exercising each session seems easier. The same principle can be applied to sleep, if you create a bedtime ritual it will start to signal to your brain that this is wind-down time and will help you to sleep better and you may even enjoy getting ready for bed!
A Cleansing Balm
Cleansing balms have multi-functional properties; they provide an intense cleanse while nourishing skin, helping to hydrate dry patches and leaving your complexion silky smooth with a fresh, dewy glow. Their high oil content means they not only help to maintain skin’s natural oil levels but they are also effective at removing makeup.
Cleansing balms, like In The Beginning, are the ideal product to add to your evening routine, not only because they will remove make-up and daily impurities but the act of massaging the balm into your skin will help to encourage a better night’s sleep. Facial massage helps boost circulation leaving skin looking healthy and glowing, it also helps to relax muscles which has a calming effect on your mind making it the perfect prelude to a good night’s sleep. As an added benefit it allows subsequent products to be absorbed more effectively.
A Multi-tasking Serum
A good night’s sleep has benefits for your skin as well as your mental well being. Overnight your cells work to repair any environmental damage incurred during the day making it the perfect opportunity to feed your skin with ingredients that will help with this process.

They can deliver actives (such as vitamins, antioxidants, acids and peptides) in a concentrated form so they are a powerful bespoke treatment. This makes them particularly effective at treating specific skin concerns whether you suffer from dry skin, blemishes, redness, dull skin or wrinkles.
