The year has been tough. Fatigue begins to set in. And we are still confined to our homes at night.. We don't let ourselves be defeated! Why not take advantage of this providential free time to take care of ourselves and organize a SPA evening at home?
No need for an entire evening or a pharaonic budget. It is possible to get away from it all in an hour and on a small budget.
So put your phone on airplane mode and slip into a bathrobe. Put on soft music (piano or jazz). In 1 hour you will be serene, relaxed and radiant.
STEP N°1: BATH OR SHOWER WITH ESSENTIAL OILS
Whether you have a bathtub or a shower, take advantage of the benefits of essential oils.
Pour 2 drops in your bath water, or in a sheltered corner of the water in your shower.
The steam will help the essential oils diffuse, and you'll have a true spa-like experience.
Choose lavender for its relaxing properties or eucalyptus to clear the airways.
Be careful not to apply these pure essential oils on the skin.
STEP N°2: FACE AND BODY EXFOLIATION
The ideal time for exfoliation is after showering or bathing, as pores are dilated and dead cells come off more easily.
Our GO FOR GLOW Cleanser can be used as a radiance mask and left on dry skin for a gentle exfoliation suitable for all skin types, even the most sensitive!
For the body, opt for a homemade exfoliation with coffee grounds mixed with coconut oil. Coffee grounds stimulate microcirculation and even help get rid of orange peel skin. Coconut oil nourishes and softens the skin.
Apply to dry skin in circular motions. Rinse with hot water to dissolve the coconut oil well and not clog your pipes.
STEP N°3: MASK AND MANICURE (LIKE AT THE SPA!)
Once the skin has been exfoliated and rid of its dead cells, it will be particularly receptive to applying a mask.
Again, you can nourish your skin with ingredients you have at home.
Probiotic Nourishing Mask Recipe:
Mix half a Greek yogurt (full of live probiotic strains to rebalance the skin flora) and Honey (humectant, moisturizer, healing repairer).
Leave on for 15 mins.
If you have dry skin, you can add Olive or Sunflower vegetable oil.
Aloe Vera gel is preferred if you have dry skin.
For dull and uneven skin, add half a teaspoon of Turmeric to your preparation.
While applying the mask, prepare a bowl of lukewarm water with a drop of lemon .
Soak your hands for a few moments in the water to soften the cuticles. After a few minutes, use a boxwood stick to gently push back the cuticles.
Rinse off the face mask.
Finish by nourishing your hands by giving them a massage with vegetable oil .
STEP N°4: NOURISH YOUR SKIN
- ONCE THE MASK IS RINSED OFF, REMEMBER TO NOURISH YOUR SKIN BEFORE THE NIGHT -
The GO FOR PROTECTION treatment is ideal for the day but it can also be applied at night.
Indeed, it accompanies your skin during its regeneration phase by providing nutrition and hydration thanks to apricot oil and Hyaluronic Acid.
Take advantage of this moment of relaxation to go to bed early, with music or a book.
Your homemade natural spa is finally finished. You are now radiant and more rested than ever.
