Mercedes' Sunday Night Beauty Routine

5 products I use before bed By Mercedes Sanchez

Preparation for the work week for me begins with a relaxing Sunday evening. Here are some of the products I used before bed last night.

1. Oil-Free Makeup Remover by Mary Kay

I remove my eyeliner and mascara before heading in the shower. Even though it's oil-free, I'm extra careful not to get any of it on my face.

2. Dove Nourishing Oil Care Shampoo, Conditioner and Anti-Frizz Serum

This new line by Dove is weightless and it doesn't have a strong fragrance. After combing my hair, I added a dime-sized amount of the anti-frizz serum and wrapped my hair in a bun. On Monday morning, I wore my hair down in its natural waves.

3. Simple Skincare Vital Vitamin Night Cream

I put this over my prescribed azelaic acid gel (which helps fight breakouts). The night cream is full of vitamins B5 and E which help soften, smooth and moisturize.

4. Eucerin Daily Replenishing Lotion

I apply it immediately after the shower, and it feels great after shaving my legs. It's fragrance free and lasts all night and day.

5. Estée Lauder Teal Topaz Nail Polish (Limited Edition)

I’ve had this polish in my bin for a while now, and I finally tried it out. Although it’s part of their Spring 2012 collection, this shade is perfect for February.
