4 ways to beautify yourself at home
We live in a crazy, fast-paced world. Whether you work long hours at the office or you scramble to get one kid to ballet and the other to soccer (while preparing dinner at the same time), we all have our own stresses to deal with. And sometimes that means we don’t pay enough attention to ‘me’. We don’t take the time to sit, relax, and make ourselves feel beautiful.
So here are four ways you can indulge in some self-loving and and beautify yourself – all without stepping out of the front door.
#1: REFRESH YOUR SKIN
A busy lifestyle can leave your skin looking and feeling a little worse for wear. Think a dull, lacklustre appearance and even a build-up of impurities. Thankfully, there’s an easy fix. Apply a layer of the deep cleansing, clay-based Dermalogica Skin Refining Masque, boil the kettle and grab a newspaper. Let the mask set for 10 minutes, then rinse off with warm water. Repeat once or twice a week and your skin will soon be smoother, cleaner and more radiant.
#2: NOURISH YOUR BODY
It doesn’t sound like much to tell you to moisturise from top-to-toe, but you’d be surprised how beneficial a daily dose of nourishment can be in improving your skin tone and texture. Plus, no one feels great about themselves when they have dry, flaky skin. After showering (and while your skin is still a bit damp), slather on Kosmea Rescue Body Cream. The combination of Certified Organic everlasting oil, rose hip butter and shea butter will allow your dry skin to lock in moisture, while chamomile will help relieve any aching muscles.
#3: REINVIGORATE YOUR LOCKS
How are your ends looking? A little dry? Perhaps even a bit ratty looking? If so, your hair is in desperate need of a treatment – like, yesterday. After you’ve shampooed and conditioned your hair, towel-dry it and apply a good serving of TONI&GUY Reconstruction Mask from your mid-lengths down. Then comb the formula through and leave it on for about 10-15 minutes. When it’s time to dry your hair, use a medium-to-low heat setting – intense heat is a huge no-no for hair.
#4: SOFTEN YOUR HANDS
Regularly applying hand cream throughout the day is a must for soft, nourished hands. Unfortunately, real life gets in the way of sitting back and massaging our hands, leaving our paws crying out for some TLC. So next time you’re sitting down to watch your favourite sitcom, put on a pair of Bliss Glamour Gloves. They’ll give your hands a huge hydration hit, and your hands will already feel softer by the time the end title credits roll.
