I Spilled My Nightly Routine to Estée Stories

Estée Stories asked me questions about my nightly routine for their "Best Night Ever" series and I answered. Keep reading to learn all about it!

What is your nightly beauty routine?

My nightly beauty routine consists of washing my face before bed. Normally I'm shooting, and sometimes we have multiple makeup looks and changes, so now I use an Advanced Night Repair Concentrated Recovery PowerFoil Mask once a week. It is super hydrating and helps restore my skin's brightness!

Do you have any tips for getting a good night's sleep?
Turning your phone on silent is a good starting point for a good night's sleep. Decompress before getting in bed to avoid weird dreams.

How do you like to relax before bed?
I drink decaf tea and watch "Key & Peele," or something with good vibes. Laughing is a good way for me to unwind.

When you travel across different time zones, how do you keep your skin hydrated and radiant after being on a plane?
I never wear makeup on the plane, that's my number-one rule. I'll also moisturize before heading to the airport. Less is more for my skin.

"Less is more for my skin."

Do you have a nighttime routine?
My nighttime ritual is easy: Wash my face, hydrate, drink a relaxing tea and chill.

What is your idea of a perfect night?
My idea of a perfect night changes with the weather. One thing that's consistent: chilling and laughing are on the agenda.

"Laughing is a good way for me to unwind."

Any tips on how to look rested when you don't get much sleep?
I need my sleep, but in this industry getting a full eight hours can be hard, if not impossible. Faking it requires a lot of water and going easy on sugar and salt.

How many hours of sleep do you average a night?
On average, I get anywhere from 5-8 hours. I prefer the latter!

Nightshirt or pajamas?
Boy shorts and a tank.

Silk, cotton or linen sheets and why?
Cotton sheets, but silk pillowcases, which are better and kinder to your face and skin.

Are you an early-to-bed, early-to-rise—or a night owl?
It depends on whether I'm traveling, but I prefer to get a great night's sleep, so early to bed.
