You’ve probably heard all the tips to maintain a beauty routine at home. However, there are some other things you can do to take care of your skin and also relax a bit. Here are some ideas you could use to enhance your beauty routine and pamper yourself:
Exfoliate your face and body
Exfoliation is great to remove all dead skin cells from the outer layer of your skin. It not only makes your skin look better and radiant but it also helps improve blood circulation. There are different methods of exfoliation depending on your skin, if you suffer from any skin condition like rosacea you should definitely ask your doctor first about the best practices. To start, you can apply some on your face and gently rub it with your fingers in circles. Sponges, brushes or gloves are also recommended for better results. Keep in mind: you should not exfoliate your face or body daily! The frequency of exfoliation depends on the type of skin you have, but in general terms twice a week is enough.
Take a relaxing bath
There is nothing better like coming home after a long day of work and taking a relaxing bath to relieve the stress from the day. Even though a bath is part of your daily routine, you can add a few things to make it extra special like bath bombs, essential oils, or tea bags. Get your favorite book, light up some candles and enjoy your time alone in the bathtub. You’ll feel renewed and relaxed once you are done. We recommend you do it before bed so you can have a restful night of sleep!
By this we mean: DONT APPLY MAKEUP! Sometimes our faces need some rest from all the products we use on a daily basis. The longer your skin goes without makeup the better it will be to regulate its temperature, oil control, hydration and more! You can forget about makeup on those days when you don’t feel like going out. Your face will appreciate having a break!
Remember that taking time every week to treat yourself is important. According to an article on Oprah’s website “When we give ourselves treats, we feel energized, cared for and contented, which boosts our self-command—and self-command helps us maintain our healthy habits.” So, what are you waiting for? Grab your favorite products and start pampering yourself!
