Clean-Beauty Founder Babba C. Rivera Shares Her Ultimate Relaxation Routine
It’s no secret that we love a good morning routine. We have learned, however, that the rituals we do to relax before bed are just as important. Whether you take 10 minutes or a few hours, it’s precious time that you set aside at the end of the day to take care of yourself. Our Weekend Wind-Down series shines a light on the nightly routines of the people we admire.
From rising through the ranks in big tech to launching an award-winning marketing agency to the founder of Ceremonia, her own clean haircare line rooted in her Latinx heritage, Babba C. Rivera has a career path that many people dream of having. . And beyond her resume, Rivera uses her platform and experience to continue to empower women and the Latinx community by challenging the status quo.
Balancing running a business and a new motherhood (she welcomed her daughter, Alma, last year) can have her stressful times, which is why Rivera takes her grooming routine very seriously. Keep scrolling to see how this clean beauty entrepreneur calms down.
I like to start my weekend relaxation routine by taking my dog for a walk to enjoy nature and clear my head before the sun goes down. I spend most of my time at home in the upstate right now, and being surrounded by so much space and nature has been a blessing this year. We do these night walks around dinner every night.
After my walk, I will change into my pajamas to enter the personal care area. My favorite set right now is from a new Swedish brand called Shop Trött. It is incredibly soft and comfortable but still so cute.
Before doing my own skincare routine, it’s bath time for Alma! I love spending this time with her after a long day at work, and she is at an age where bubbles and water are endless fun.
I use the Evereden baby line for her, and we both love it! They are clean, safe formulas created by mothers and doctors.

After Alma takes her bath, it’s time for my ultimate personal care routine. My Ceremonia brand Scalp Power Duo is my go-to ritual, which includes the award-winning Scalp Remedy Oil, Moska’s Aceite, and our scalp massager.

First, I will apply the mask to my scalp and leave it on overnight for nourishment and deep cleansing. Then I will use the Scalp Massager to give my scalp a much needed massage to stimulate blood circulation, which can help stimulate hair growth, and it also helps amplify the results of the mask.
Once my Aceite de Moska is applied and massaged, I put on the Ceremonia spa headband and move on to my evening skincare routine.
The switch to clean skin care was the catalyst for my interest in clean beauty. I realized how important it is to pay as much attention to what I put on my body as what I put on my body. That being said, two of my favorite clean skin care products right now are the Tracie Martyn Cleanser and the Mantle Dream Mask. I use them every week, if not every day.

After my beauty routine I’m in a perfectly relaxed mood to go to bed and like to use this time to read a book or, if I have the energy, to stand up and watch a movie with my husband.
