College Nighttime Routine - Honestly Hannah

College Nighttime Routine

college-nighttime-routine

After my college morning routine post, I got some requests to do a college nighttime routine post, so here it is! I'm a big believer in routines, and I feel so much better when I have a routine. Although my nighttime routine varies a lot in college depending on what I have going on, this is my typical routine for weeknights especially. Since college can be really stressful, it's important to have some rhyme or reason to your day, and the evening hours are the perfect time to do this!



10:30 PM - Get cozy


I love to put on comfy slippers and fuzzy socks when it's getting close to when I want to get to sleep. Usually, this is the time where I'll finish up some homework if I have some left, or just relax and watch Netflix. I definitely believe that it's important to have a cut off time for homework and studying, and mine is typically earlier than 10:30 PM, but if I really need to finish something, I'll do it now. If you can, I'd recommend stopping your homework at an earlier hour, unless it's absolutely urgent.

Make tea

When I'm winding down for bed (watching Netflix in my cozy slippers), I like to make a cup of tea to help me relax. I love this tea because it doesn't have caffeine and won't keep me up all night. Plus it tastes amazing and really helps you to relax! Camomile tea is great for sleep, and I always feel like I sleep better whenever I drink it.

11 PM - Skincare/brush teeth

I recently started removing my makeup with coconut oil, and I'm absolutely obsessed. I love the way it takes off all my makeup and doesn't break me out at all. No matter how much makeup I'm wearing, it breaks everything down and I'm left with no makeup on my face.

After removing my makeup, I use this exfoliating cleanser to remove any dirt or oil that has built up throughout the day. I love this stuff because you can use it as a cleanser OR a mask if you want to leave it on for a longer period of time! I keep my skincare really simple, so all I do after that is apply this moisturizer and I'm all set with skincare for the night.

Of course, I always brush my teeth after this with my favorite toothbrush (it's seriously so good, and currently on sale!) with my favorite toothpaste

11:10 PM - Glasses, lip-care, hair

I wear contact lenses so I obviously remove my contacts before bed and put on my glasses. I also like to sleep with my hair up in a scrunchy because it prevents damage and keeps my hair from getting tangled throughout the night. I then like to apply some lip balm to my lips so they'll be moisturized when I wake up in the morning!

11:15 PM - PJS!

I always get so excited to put on my comfortable pajamas at the end of a long day. Target has some of my favorite pajama pants (I love these ones!). They're always so cute and comfortable. I'm also just wearing this simple gray cami.

11:20 PM - Check planner/update to-do lists

I'm obsessed with my planner, so I always check it each night to see exactly what I have going on the next day and throughout the week. I'll add anything that I can think of at this time, and I'll also jot down a few things on a to-do list that I need to get done the next day.

Between 11:30 PM & 12 AM - Bed

Okay, this doesn't ALWAYS happen, but I do like to wake up early (ish) to go to the gym and even get some work done before class. I try to get to be as early as I can, but it's definitely difficult to get to bed early during college.

Hope you all enjoyed my college nighttime routine and found it helpful! What are some of your nightly rituals?

  11. Most understudies can reveal to you that it isn't How Much you examine, yet knowing How to legitimately think about for paper help school lessons and tests that is the key that decides if somebody will Pass or Fail.
