Stop Everything! It's Time For A Pamper Session
Women often have hectic and busy lives, where it’s a talent to juggle home life, career, and a social life. With so much going on each day, it can be difficult to find some time to take for yourself, to relax and have a pamper session. However, it’s important to take one day, every one to two weeks, to indulge yourself; which will relax the mind, ensuring you’re ready to take on whatever the upcoming days bring you. Self care and wellbeing are the current buzzwords, and it’s about time! A little of what you fancy will always do you good and ensure you’re feeling radiant, so, the following are some ideas and inspiration for those who need to take a step back more often for a pamper session.
Nothing Beats A Bath
It doesn’t matter what the weather is like; running yourself a warm bath can start the relaxation process straight away; the sound of the water hitting the tub will chill you out before you’ve even stepped inside to soak. Pour in some luxury bubble or oils, and begin to treat your skin to some much-needed relief and moisture. Lighting a lavender-scented candle and playing some chillout music, will also help to create a relaxing ambiance. If you don’t have a bath, treat yourself to luxury shower gels, oils, and hair products, so you’ll step out smelling dreamy. You could also fill a tub, or foot spa, full of warm water, and get comfy while your feet soak.
Indulge Your Skin
When you’ve soaked and cleansed your skin, it’s time to hydrate it further. If you’re a fan of mud or sheet masks, the bath would have been a great opportunity to lay there wearing one; or perhaps you showered and use one afterward as you use your foot spa. Choose a facemask that’s suitable for your skin type, or that targets any specific skin issues you might be having. After removing the mask, it’s time to indulge even more with moisturizers and serums. Again, it’s wise to choose specific products that will help any skin issues you might be facing, so a dark spot remover serum, or a brightening moisturizer for lackluster skin, might be appropriate choices. Now is also a great opportunity to lather the luxury body cream you bought yourself or were gifted as a treat, all over your body and limbs; from your neck to your ankles.
Invest In Some Products
Now that you’re fully cleansed, moisturized, and any specific skin issues have been targeted; it’s time to add the pretty touches, that will last you for the week ahead. File and buff your nails and toenails, and pop some cuticle oil on each finger, or look into diy nail strengthener; while that soaks in, put your feet up and catch up on your favorite T.V show, or watch a movie. Focusing your mind on something you enjoy will help to relieve any stresses you’ve had during the week, and you’ll be calm and happy for the next one. When it comes to painting your nails, pick a color that makes you smile, and that you’d happily wear with any outfit during the week.
For some inspiration on pretty nail polish techniques, take a look online. It’s worth investing in a decent polish, that’s unlikely to chip, especially for your toenails; as you can get away with only painting these once every month or few weeks.
