Where I’ve been quite ill lately, it’s taken a toll on my outside as well as my inside so I thought I’d do myself a little pamper night when the kids went to sleep.
Now who doesn’t like to pamper themselves!? Hot steamy baths, taking care of your skin, making your nails look pretty, giving yourself a foot massage (my husband wouldn’t dream of rubbing my feet unfortunately so yes I do have to massage them myself.) Its nice to get you time and there’s something about it that completely des tresses yourself!
A lot of the skin care and moisturisers I do and use I do either once/twice a week or daily depending on what product and what for. All week I’ve done not a lot except face masks and face cream here and there. So here we go!
FACE: Firstly, twice a week I wash my face with this Glorious Mud facial exfoliator to get a nice deep clean and smooth away dead skin. I picked it up in savers for something like 99p because I left mine at home when I went to visit my aunt and I keep going back because it really is a nice feel and smell to it and it does its job.
Next, Garnier Micellar Water. I use it really to help get the make up off and it does cleanse the face amazingly but if you haven’t noticed there’s another cleanser up there. Body Shop Cucumber cleansing milk. You don’t need them both but I enjoy using them both because the Body shop cleanser seems to make my face cool and refreshed.
After that I used my Quick Fix Facials collagen mask. I don’t consider myself old just yet (I’m in denial that I’ll be 30 in three years!) but it is NEVER to early to start thinking aging products and wrinkles and all that good stuff, so I like to use a collagen mask twice a week and random ones in between.
Random note: I’ve become obsessed with face masks so if you have any suggestions or favourites please share! 🙂
And finally for my face this evening the Garnier Skin Active Moisture Bomb. I’ve only just received this as a product testing product and this with the day cream so far is great which I will do a before and after and review in a few weeks time. I’ll say it a couple times but moisturising is so so important for your skin.
FEET: Next is good ol feet. The Scholl’s Wet and Dry file is another product testing product I’m using at the moment and so far so good! I’m trying to use it one a week maybe one every other week depending.
After its all nice and smooth I painted my toes with BarryM Gelly nail polish I. This torquoise colour and if you haven’t realise yet, blues and torquoises are getting up there as my favorite colours.
And finally I used my Baylis and Harding Sweet Manderine and Grapefruit smoothing foot lotion, massaging them and taking focus on the bottoms to release tension. And I’ll pop them in my Happy socks that are for pampered feet to lock in the moisture.
HAIR: Since my hair is coloured and underneath is bleached for the blue, my hair needs extra care and moisture. Any type of hair mask is good and I highly suggest anything with Aragon oil, but I totally love my Naobay hair mask. I received it in my glossy box, and already ordered a new one ready for when this runs out. My split ends are unrecognisable, and my hair is so manageable! They are good to try and use once a week although I tend to do it twice some weeks.
SKIN: Finally my moisturiser. After a bath dry off and put on a nice moisturiser. It’ll keep your skin healthy smooth and happy. I started using Nivea irresistibly Smooth. It smells great and keeps my skin moisturised baisically all day and all night when I apply after my bath. Keeps the moisture in your skin.
Now finally, to keep me going I drank a large glass of water and filled my huge liter water bottle ready to drink in the morning. That is the secret weapon to good skin and body care!
What’s your nightly routines like? And what’s your favourite skin tips I’d love to hear it! Good night y’all!
