I often treat myself to a good old 'Pampering Session' when I find myself facing a tough week. They leave me SO relaxed. Last Sunday I decided to treat myself to a nice little pamper…
The first step in my Pamper Routine begins with a bath. Baths are an effective way of ditching stress. A nice, warm soak in a bath can be so relaxing. On Sunday morning I was out to treat myself, so I popped a splash of the 'Aromatherapy Associates Revive Morning Bath Oil' into my bath. What I love about this particular oil is its uplifting scent. It is fresh, Zesty and reminds me of garden herbs. The oils also do a lovely job at leaving my skin feeling soft, supple and rather hydrated. It is impressive stuff and a great product to work into your pamper sessions!
Step two is all about showing your skin some love. I love to go straight in with a face mask of my choice. Dermalogica make amazing face masks, my favourite being their 'Skin Hydrating Masque'. It is probably the best moisturising face mask that I have ever come across. If you have dry & sensitive skin, prepare to be blown away! The product is light, cooling and leaves your skin feeling SO beautiful. To make the most out of this particular mask, I like to pop the 'Bioderma Hydrabio Serum' underneath it. If you use a serum underneath moisturising face masks you tend to get better results. That is a top tip for you there…
I love products that can leave your skin feeling refreshed. A great product that I like to use on tired eyes is the 'Vichy Aqualia Thermal Roll on Eye Gel'. Its metal applicator allows you to massage the product into the skin around your eyes. I feel like I am getting the ultimate eye pamper with this product. Its a firm favourite to turn to on those days where I go all out with a little pampering session!
Finally I feel nothing beats a good Pampering session without a bit of nail time. I love to end with my nails looking prim and proper. Painting your nails is rather therapeutic - It relaxes me. On Sunday I used a nail polish from Angelica's new line in 'Pashmina'. It is absolutely stunning. The colour borders on nude and lilac with a fine shimmer and a matte finish. If your going to do your pampering sessions right, paint those nails!
