As I've gotten older (ha - some days I do still feel like a teenager), I've really been trying hard to incorporate habits and routines in my life that may seem trivial now, but I know I will appreciate later on. At times I feel like my night time beauty routine is too long and pointless, but in my heart I know they are important. It will be worth it when 50 year old Rachel looks back and says 'thank you' ;) With the stress of the holiday season, it's so important for me to relax and reward myself with these beauty products :) 
Today I'm sharing with you guys how my own bedtime routine is the base of all my beauty routines! This includes things that will help you out with your holiday glow-- like moisturizing, whitening my teeth, etc! I especially love P&G products. These products and more can be found at your local Costco, which is great for a law school wife like me because I can save on great products. 
Here we go!
Teeth Whitening// I don't whiten my teeth every night, just when I feel as needed since I keep up on whitening fairly regularly. Costco offers a Crest 3D White Strips Combo Pack that includes both the Crest 3D White Luxe and Crest 3D White White Strips 1 Hour Express for a great price! SCORE! TIP: I like to start off my bedtime routine by whitening my teeth, because it takes a while and I can finish up the rest of my routine while my teeth whiten. By the time I'm done with my nighttime routine, I am also done whitening my teeth! I like using the Luxe pack before bed because you only need to wear them for 30 minutes.

Skincare// I always take my makeup off before bed. I can't think of anything worse for your skin than sleeping with makeup on your face!! TIP: Rip your makeup wipe in half if you didn't wear too much makeup that day to make the wipes last! I love using makeup wipes to initially clean off the makeup, then I wash my face with cleansing soap. Once a week or so I like to do a face mask. It makes my skin feel amazing!

Moisturizing// I've mentioned before that I have very dry skin. I've had dry skin for as long as I can remember, so it's crucial for me to use a good moisturizer. Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream moisturizer is an anti-aging moisturizer that hydrates to regenerate volume and shape across your skin's surface. Not only does it help to visibly reduce the appearance of wrinkles, but it also immediately leaves skin hydrated and softens your skin. Talk about double duty! Speaking of double duty... Costco sells the Olay Regenerist Micro-Sculpting Cream moisturizer in a two-pack so you will have plenty of moisturizer!
Dental Hygiene// I am a bit of a freak when it comes to dental hygiene. I have very cavity prone teeth, so I make sure to floss and brush! Embarrassingly, I also still wear my retainers a few nights a week to keep my teeth straight. I've heard too many stories of people not wearing their retainers and guess what?! Their teeth have moved! I do not want to deal with that, so retainers it is.

Miscellaneous// Right before bed I just have to apply some lip balm to keep my lips hydrated. I can't seem to fall asleep unless I've done this! The last thing isn't necessarily a "beauty routine", but I LOVE to read before turning out the lights. It clears my mind and prepares me to go to sleep! I much prefer a book before bed than being on my phone.

So there you go! A law school wife's nightly beauty routine. Easy, effective, and affordable thanks to Costco's great products that I love gifting to myself! Costco also offers other great products that make great gifts to loved ones for the holidays!

Be sure to stop by Costco to check out their top notch beauty products! I'd love to hear about what you do for your nightly routine!
