As hours bleed together during work-from-home, live-at-work days, there is value in creating rituals to separate how we spend our time. Our favorite moment for self-care lately is in the twilight hours, as a way to mark the end of the work day and the beginning of the evening. Here are five ways we do it.
The Day-is-Done Cleanse
SHOP: EPARA CLEANSING OIL
Cool water and a cleansing lotion that gently removes makeup and sunscreen leads to a jaw that unclenches upon contact.
The First Layer
SHOP: ROYAL FERN PHYTOACTIVE SKIN PERFECTING ESSENCE
Applying this water-like texture to clean skin feels incredibly cocooning. This light layer of moisture also delivers gentle exfoliation its namesake anti-inflammatory fern extract.
The Nutritive Serum
SHOP: VOTARY SUPER SEED SERUM
Feed your skin with broccoli seed and rosehip oil; soothe and reduce redness with grape seed extract. And protect with bio-engineered peptides that keep your skin’s lipid layer and microbial balance in check.
The Match Point
SHOP: THE ALTARS MOON CHARGED MATCHES
Strike while the day is done and ignite a wick, a sliver of incense, of a stick of palo santo to flagrantly end the day with fragrance.
The Deep Brush
SHOP: CROWN AFFAIR THE SET
A little scalp stimulation, a lot of care: with Crown Affair The Set, the brush is back, as is a petite hourglass timer to lengthen the ritual.
