Sometimes after a stressful week all we need is a little bit of a pick me up! There is nothing like a good pamper night to leave you feeling relaxed and refreshed. From face masks to using bath goodies, there are so many ways you can pamper yourself at home. A relaxing night of beauty treatments is a perfect way to de-stress both your body and your soul. Below we have come up with a dream list of pamper night essentials to give yourself the best pampering night ever!
1. Relaxing bath
Winter is the best season to take a nice bath especially when it is so cold outside. It is the number one pampering essential on our list. Light the candles, dim the lights, play some relaxing music and simply enjoy the peace and quiet. It is also a perfect opportunity to fully exfoliate your body with a hearty scrub to get rid of all the dead skin. There is nothing better than leaving your bathtub with baby smooth legs!
2. Face mask
We love face masks! From mud masks to bubble ones, there are so many to choose from. You don’t have to spend money on high end brands full of chemical products when you can still achieve great results with natural homemade masks. An oatmeal facial is a perfect inexpensive way to pamper your skin at home. It will leave your skin feeling moisturised, smooth and glowing.
3. Netflix and chill
Have an awesome Netflix and chill session all by yourself. Get super comfy and wear your favourite pyjamas, stock up on snacks and have a movie marathon or binge watch your favourite series. You can also use this opportunity to do your manicure - Netflix and nails definitely go hand in hand!
4. A cup of tea
There is nothing like being curled up on the sofa with a cup of tea in your hands. There is just something relaxing and soothing about it. We recommend peppermint and green teas - not only they are super refreshing, but also very good for you. Green tea is famous for its fat burning properties and it is also a perfect source of antioxidants that can improve the function of your body and brain.
After your relaxing bath time and full body exfoliation it is important to give your skin a lot of moisture.Take this time to do your whole body, because let’s be honest sometimes we can be so lazy to rub the lotion all over our body every day, so make sure you don’t skip any part of your skin during your pampering session.
6. Treat your hair
Your hair also needs a little pampering here and there. Hair masks are more time consuming than face masks so that’s why they are often avoided by us. However, try and sneak a hair mask in your busy schedule and your hair will thank you for it! A pamper night in is a perfect opportunity to experiment with your hair treatments and try some natural DIY recipes that will help you nourish dry and damaged hair.
With all the stress of everyday life it is important that we take time for ourselves! Effective self care includes allowing yourself to relax and pamper yourself from time to time. Look after your body and soul and it will show in your glowing appearance!
