I have always wanted to be the type of girl that could make time for fun things like spa days and massages. However, the older I get, the harder it is to prioritize my schedule to include something that’s only meant to make me feel spoiled and special. Whenever I’m feeling stressed or overwhelmed, I like to have an at-home pamper night! I try my hardest to turn my mind off and unwind, while using products that make me feel like I’m in a fancy spa!
My first step in my pamper routine is to take a hot bath! This is essential because too often I just shower super quickly and forget to even take the time to unwind in a jacuzzi bath. I love using LUSH Bath Bombs because they smell amazing and make your water look really pretty! This one is the, “Butterbear” Bath Bomb and it smells incredible, just like cocoa powder! Next, I like to exfoliate my body with a sugar scrub! I love using the Tree Hut “Sugar Shea Scrub” from head-to-toe! It’s gentle enough to not irritate my sensitive skin, however it will remove all dead skin and any remaining self tanner that hasn’t faded off naturally! After I’ve shampooed and conditioned my hair, I like to apply a hair mask to give extra moisture and help repair any dry/damaged strands! Recently, I’ve been obsessed with the OUAI “Treatment Mask.” I just apply it on my clean, damp hair and let it sit for 10-15 minutes. My hair feels like absolute silk when I’m finished with it! Lastly, once I’m finished with the bath and completely dried off, I like to apply the Shea Moisture “100% Extra Virgin Coconut Oil” all over my body, like I would a regular lotion. I feel like I’ve seen a difference in my skin since I switched over to coconut oil from body creams! Not only does it feel more hydrated and healthy, but I’ve noticed it’s not as itchy and irritated, which would happen all the time after using artificially scented body butters. I definitely can’t use this product as a hair mask because it’s way too heavy and I look like a greased chicken the next day, but it makes an awesome all over the body moisturizer!
Now that I have clean skin and I’m feeling super relaxed, it’s time for a face mask! My favorite one to apply is the award winning Fresh “Rose Face Mask” because it not only hydrates, but it also tones! I feel like it’s so hard to find a mask that does both! It’s all-natural and smells like fresh roses! Sometimes I feel like doing something fun and different so I’ll grab a sheet mask instead! I love the Tony Moly line of sheet masks because there is such variety available for all the different skin types out there! Plus, the packaging is absolutely adorable! After I’ve left my face mask on for about 20-30 minutes, I rinse that off and immediately apply my nightly skincare! I’ve been using my favorite Origins “High Potency Night-A-Mins” moisturizer for years and it is SO GOOD! I recommend this product to everyone, dry skin, combo, or oily skin; you just need it! I also always apply an eye cream, recently I’ve been loving the Tarte “Maracuja C-Brighter Eye Treatment” because it’s incredibly hydrating and helps plump up the skin where I have fine lines! Now that I’m finished with my face, it’s time to treat my feet! If you are in need of a super hydrating and luxurious lotion for an at-home pedicure, then you must try the L’Occitane Foot Cream! It is incredible the difference that this makes, especially on my heels! I’ve been a fan of the hand cream for awhile now, but this product is a game changer! Of course, I can’t forget about my lips and every single night I apply Aquaphor to keep them moisturized! It doesn’t have a scent, which I love and I always wake up with hydrated lippies that are ready for lipstick application!
Hopefully this post gave you some good ideas on the types of products to try out if you’re wanting to pamper yourself! I think it’s so important to take a break from all the craziness that happens in our every day lives and unwind! If you have products that relax you, please comment them on this post! I hope you have a wonderful week and I appreciate you taking the time to read!
