Vitamins: Morning or Night?

For the longest time I have asked myself this question: Should I take my vitamins in the morning, or at night? Well, after a little bit of research I found the answer. Most people, like me, prefer to take them in the morning, maybe after breakfast. But believe it or not, it's actually better to take them at night. Why night? Well, if you sleep at night like most people, it's recommended to take them before you go to bed. This is because when you're sleeping, your body utilizes the nutrients you take in from those vitamins. It doesn't work the same way in the morning. I realized that the reason I was always so sluggish throughout my day was because I would take them in the morning. I feel more energized when I take them at night
Although they are powerful, vitamins only do half the work of providing you with the nutrients you need. Make sure to eat plenty of healthy foods. Balance out what you eat everyday. Cravings do serve a purpose, and for good reason. If you're craving a specific food, your body may be looking for a certain nutrient. Personally, I'm not really a huge fan of junk food. I've always been pretty conscious of what I eat. Remember, you are what you eat!

@Offical0RiaChan right! thank you so much! that was very helpful!
Haha, no problem! @mchlyang
@mchlyang since your body utilizes the ingredients during the night, it's best to take them before bed. You can read more about that here: http://www.bengreenfieldfitness.com/2013/11/when-to-take-vitamins/ This is where I found the information I put here. Hopefully it answers your questions.
@Offical0RiaChan wait...so wouldn't it be better if you had them in the morning?
Hi @mchlyang ! I can understand the confusion here. Let me explain: without my vitamins I lose some of the nutrients I need. I'm very busy during the weekdays so I don't have time to eat during the day. I guess you can say I can't function without them. It's just the effect it has on me. Sorry about the confusion. I hope I explained it enough.

Self-care: Skincare Routine
Hello fam! Taking care of your outside is a part of self care. Skin care is not only good practice or hygiene, but can help reduce stress with the time and quality of products that you use. I will share my updated skin care routine. FYI my skin type is dry and sensitive. 1. Music I always have to play some music and groove when I take care of my skin. As ya know I'm either rocking out to BTS or some rock band! 2. Products for Day Time: Real Cica Micellar Cleansing Foam and Drunk Elephant Protini Moisturizer This cleanser is super gentle and so silky. It does have a super light scent. This does not dry out my skin.I purchased my on Amazon. It's under 20 bucks and a little goes a long way. I use this in the morning. This is expensive!!! I will say about $65 bucks USA coins. However, a little goes a long way and the formula is like hydrating your skin with silk. This is light weight but super hydrating. Great to apply before make up as well. 3. Night Time Products: Biore Witch Hazel Pore Clarifying Cooling Cleanser, Real Cica Essense Pads, and Dr. Jart Ceramidin This cooling gel cleanser gives me life and soothes my skin at night time. It feels so relaxing. Make sure not to leave in skin for too long if you have sensitive skin. These pads claim to be a light skin peel. I will say that it does soften my skin, reduces irritation and or inflammation, and leaves skin supple with a glow. You can purchase these on Amazon too. This moisturizer has so many natural ingredients and does have a lemon scent. This is thicker but super hydrating. This does help reduce irritation as well. This did cost about $35 bucks. 4. Makeup face: Take the day off Cleansing Milk For my make up I double cleanse. I use this Cleansing Milk followed by either or wash and my night time moisturizer. This was $25 at Ulta. Sorry folks I know I should use spf but I don't. I used to use this sun blocker but it ended up breaking me out after 6 months of using it.
