When Beauty Routines Get "Broken"

Hello everyone,

I am usually pretty good with my beauty routine at the end of the day, but everything changes when my husband goes deployed. Normally I remove my makeup, apply moisturizer, etc... For the past month I've been TERRIBLE with it! At least couple times of week I've fallen asleep with my makeup still on. :( I think it's because I come home from work to a quiet lonely house, get online and read blogs or talk to my US friends so much that I just fall asleep on the couch instead of going upstairs to bed. By the time I wake up, it's already almost morning and I don't even bother with my makeup.

Lately I've been making a point to go straight upstairs after work (and I get off at 11pm) and remove my makeup, and it helped somewhat. I still fall asleep on the couch haha. I'm starting to think that I'm avoiding our big bed, instead for settling for not-so-lonely-and-smaller couch which is just perfect for "little person" (like my husband calls me) like me. At least my makeup removing routine is somewhat back on track, but I do have to put an effort towards it.

Do any of you have a problem with your beauty routine suffering from various events in your life?

  1. I have been very bad.

    For the past year I haven't been moisturising my face properly (normally twice a day, morning and evening)using Simple light moisturiser. The result is that my skin has becomes very dry. I should get back to this routine.

  2. Yup, we all found out during our last hang out that you are a major slacker ;P :P :P So I agree, you definitely should get back to that routine!

    Btw, I just used Simple Vitamin Night moisturizer and it's absorbing quite fast. I would imagine on your dry skin it would absorb even faster :) :)

  3. I'm a good girl all week at work but if I go out on Friday or Saturday I frequently fall asleep with the slap on. Not because I'm passing out lol but because I'm usually so knackered I can't cope with the late night! I must be getting old... x
