As humans, we spend on average 25 years sleeping - that's a third of our life! Someone who never underestimates the power of a good night's sleep is New Zealand beauty, Maia Cotton. As a busy model, and one of the faces of our new Comfy Livin' campaign, we caught up with Maia to get the lowdown on her evening routine, self-care tips, and how she likes to relax after a long day.
Tell us about your night-time beauty routine.
My evening skincare routine is very simple. I remove any makeup with Bioderma Micellar water, then cleanse and moisturise with the Barbara Sturm foaming cleanser and Barbara Sturm face cream. I also apply the Sunday Riley Juno Face Oil and Glossier lip balm.
How do you wind down after a big day?
The first thing I do is change in to something comfortable. The Comfy Livin' Robe is a must. It’s the best part of coming home after a big day! Then I usually like to play some music and read. It’s my remedy to take my mind off of any stresses during my day, and there’s nothing better than a good book.
What are your favourite self-care activities?
Taking time to cook a delicious meal, having my nails done, and applying a face mask.
What’s your approach to sleep?
I think a good night’s sleep is as important as a healthy diet or exercise. I try to get at least 6-8 hours every night!
What’s your best sleep tip for a good night’s sleep?
Taking a moment to put my phone down and practice a bed time routine at the same time every evening. I think having an evening routine helps the body become aware it’s time to wind down and relax.
What Comfy Livin' items are your must haves for a good night?
The Comfy Livin' jersey robe is my favourite thing to get super cosy.
