There is nothing better than having a winter pamper session now and again, and this form of self care is not only brilliant for a cozy chilled evening in front of the tv, but it will ensure your skin and hair stay healthy and strong.
Here is a simple step by step, no fuss pamper session that you can do this weekend to refresh your body and get you ready for the week ahead.
Step One: Face and Hair Mask
The first simple step to a pamper session is the masks. Masks often take 20-30 minutes to set, and this is why it is a good idea to do these steps before you get in your bath or shower to wash off. Apply a charcoal face mask to rid the skin of impurities and blemishes, and use a simple hydrating hair mask on damp hair and let that sit in a bun for the duration of your face mask.
You could also add an extra step here and take the opportunity 5 minutes before you get into your shower to apply some hair removal cream. From legs to lady parts, you can remove hair without razor burn and end up with smooth and silky skin all over.
Step Two: A Steamy Shower
Once everything is dry, it is time to get in the shower and wash it all off. Rinse off your face mask and hair removal cream (if used), and leave your hair up for a little longer while you wash your body. Exfoliate your face with a facial scrub and then cleanse with a facial wash. Rinse your hair thoroughly, wash, and then condition. By the time you get out of the shower you’ll be squeaky clean!
Step Three: Moisturise Moisturise Moisturise
Once you are out of the shower and your skin is nice and warm; it is the perfect time to apply cream to the body. You can start by applying an aqueous cream to your legs and arms, and a scented cream to your body. Cleanse your face once more, tone, and then moisturise with a rich lotion. Take out your hair and apply a leave in conditioner, then leave to dry naturally.
Step Four: At Home Manicure
Once your body feels refreshed it is time to treat yourself to a new mani pedi. If you have strong nails, simply paint a colour over them- but if you have brittle nails you can buy plain nailene stick ons and work with those. To add some festive cheer to your nails, add a coat of glitter on top and enjoy a sparkly mani pedi.
Step Five: Get Cosy
Now that you are preened and happy, it’s time to take advantage of some free pizza delivery, a glass of white wine, and your favourite tv show! What better way to end a winter pamper session than to relax!
This simple winter pamper session will clear impurities from the skin, help keep skin supple and soft, and maintain silky hair for longer. Try to do this every few weeks and maintain a beautiful natural look throughout your life. Plus, everyone needs a good sanity break!
