Working full time as well as juggling a blog, YouTube channel, social life and a relationship definitely takes its toll on me and so it’s so important for me to fit in those pamper nights.
After a seriously hard couple of months (feeling emotionally and psychically strained) I’m starting to try and make more ‘me-time’ where I relax and pamper myself. Here are the following things that are normally involved in my pamper night routine!
First step HAS to be a bath, without a doubt. I can light some candles (currently adoring Aromatherapy Associate Inner Strength Candle which is great for helping to de-stress) add a couple of drops of essential oils into the bath and relax as I pamper and preen myself! I like to start off with a hair mask & face mask whilst I buff my body with my Braun Silk Spa 7 which is an epilator and exfoliation system in one. Giving your body a good scrub before epilating ensures dead skin cells are removed and also prevents ingrown hairs. It can be used wet and dry all over the body which makes easy and convenient to use!
Next step is to epilate my legs and under arms. I’ve
mentioned before this is quite painful but the results are outstanding –
anything which means I don’t have to shave my legs daily is incredible in
my books. Love this epilator in particular as it removes tiny hairs, has
a light for precise use and has a pivoting head which makes it
little less painful.
Now once my body is soft, clean and stubble free, I wash my hair
properly and cleanse my face with the Braun Face. You can read about this in
full in this post here but it’s perfect for thoroughly removing every bit of
makeup and oil from the face.
Once out of the bath, I obviously dry my hair and
usually put into a plait to style overnight (makes it incredibly wavy in the
morning and absolutely effortlessly stylish).
Now ready for the final step!
I’m currently obsessed with Peppermint tea; I have one every night
before bed as it helps settle my stomach and relax me (I have a really bad
phobia of being ill so this helps silly amounts). I then like to paint my nails (currently
ADORE Max Factor’s polish in Ruby Fruit see above) and then finish by reading a
book. I’m currently reading ‘Dark Echo’ by F.G Cottam (review coming soon).
So that’s it! Hope you
