Hey loves, welcome back to my website :-)
I think we all need to take some time out for ourselves to pamper our bodies. I try to take at least 1 evening a week to put on a hair and face mask, then relax! I also love to spend relaxing days in with the girls doing DIY spa days. In today's blog I will be sharing some things I like to do when I relax and ideas for a girls night in!
Firstly I like to make sure I am stocked up with snacks so I don't have to leave the house when i'm all relaxed. I love to have fresh fruit to snack on as it's super important to take care of yourself from the inside out :-) I then like to put on some comfy clothes...usually my dressing gown and slippers!
For a DIY facial firstly I remove any makeup I have on. I then like to steam my face to open up my pores for a deep clean. To do this I simply pour boiling water into a large bowl and put a towel over my head, then lean over the bowl for around 5 minutes. It gets really steamy and hot which is great to open the pores and get out any trapped dirt!
Following this I like to put on a face mask. My personal favs are clay masks and tea tree mask as these draw out impurities from the skin. I have blemish prone skin and find these 2 work best for me. However you can use whatever mask works well for your skin, depending what you are trying to achieve!
While my face mask is on I also like to give my hair some TLC. One super simple option for hair is to get some coconut oil and put this all over your hair. I like to tie my hair up in a bun once the oil is applied to keep it neat and tidy. You can leave this on for as long as you like, however I find it works great if you leave it on for a couple of hours. After washing your hair later that evening, it will feel super soft and healthy.
Again there are many options for hair masks, this is just one I like to do personally :-).
Then it's time to relax and eat your snacks!
Even though this is relaxing time, sometimes I like to bake cakes or fudge with my friends when having a girls day/night. I sure do have a sweet tooth! If you are interested in seeing any recipes please let me know.
Also while your face/hair mask is on this could be great time to paint your nails or whiten your teeth! I find painting my nails quite therapeutic at times :-) for teeth whitening I just use the Crest 3D whitening strips which are super easy to use.
These are just a couple of ideas which I enjoy and thought you might too!
Please do remember that is it important to take time for yourself, we all deserve it <3
