I'm trying to get more in the habit of giving myself permission to fully decompress at night. The workday often goes by in five seconds, and then it's time to walk the dogs, make dinner, and finish up any outstanding errands. Before I know it, it's 10 p.m., I'm exhausted, and the last thing that's on my mind is, well, me. I'll scroll through TikTok or Instagram, and often fall asleep basically cradling my phone. I needed a nighttime routine intervention, but I also had to be realistic: How can I consistently take care of myself at the end of the day when I sometimes don't have the dedicated hours, even minutes?
Discovering Pink Moon Midnight Melody Body & Hair Oil ($42) has been a total game-changer—and it's given me a semblance of what a "wind-down" looks like at night.

This body oil stands out because it features a versatile 4-in-1 formula that nourishes skin and hair. It doubles as both a bath oil and fragrance, and its subtle-yet-sweet aroma is powered by tuberose, ylang-ylang, sweet orange, and amber. You can also apply it to nails as an effective cuticle oil, which I've been doing every Sunday night before I paint on a fresh coat of polish.
What I really love about it is that it leaves my skin soft (but never greasy) and doesn't transfer to pajamas or bed sheets. With my hair, I'm able to quickly run my fingers through wet strands after a shower and end up with a softer, more manageable mane. Thanks to its formula, which is rich with hydrating organic sunflower seed, apricot kernel, and meadowfoam, my hair and skin get a fast infusion of vitamin-rich ingredients that soften and moisturize while I sleep.
Made in small batches and handcrafted by Pink Moon's founder, Lin Chen, Midnight Melody oil may be a quicker route to self-care city, but its thoughtful formula makes it feel endlessly decadent. Plus, it's a great brand to support (I've tried several of Pink Moon's products, and they never disappoint). The company's ethos is rooted in vegan and sustainable ingredients, giving back (1 percent of the revenue from every purchase goes toward Pink Moon's charity partners), and representation (the brand promotes female and non-binary businesses, which you can also find on their community-like site and marketplace).
Basically, Pink Moon is a feel-good brand in all the ways—but if you're not sure where to start, I highly recommend their Midnight Melody oil. Your wind-down routine (and skin and hair) will thank you—even if you've only got a few minutes to spare.
