From stressed to zen: Your ultimate self-care pamper guide
From stressed to zen: Your ultimate self-care pamper guide

Are you in need of a little pampering? Who isn’t! Modern life can really take its toll on your hair, skin and nails. An at-home spa day makes you feel good, look good, and replenishes your soul.

 

We’ve rounded up our favourite products for pampering your body and spirit - to leave you feeling like you’ve just stepped out of a spa.

 

Pamper your complexion

Any makeup artist will tell you that foundation applies better to smooth, clean, blemish-free skin. Using a face mask regularly helps to exfoliate and remove dead skin cells, for a brighter complexion.

 

We love the Pure Clay range of masks by L’Oréal. Try the L’Oréal Paris Pure Clay Purity Mask with eucalyptus to mattify oily skin, or the energising and purifying L’Oréal Paris Pure Clay Detox Mask infused with charcoal.

 

After washing off your mask with warm water, go easy on the makeup for a day or two. A light dusting of translucent powder and nude lipstick such as Maybelline Color Sensational Vivid Matte Liquid in Nude Thrill is just perfect for freshly exfoliated skin.

Hair rescue

While you’re letting your face soak up the goodness of a clay mask, how about some nourishment for your hair? Natural hair care is all about avoiding damaging heat treatments and allowing your hair’s curls, waves and kinks to take centre stage. To keep your hair in top condition and to reduce frizz, a nutrient-rich moisture treatment is essential.

 

Kerastase Aura Botanica Masque is one of our favourite hair care products. It is enriched with Amazonian Brazil Nut Oil (high in fatty acid, selenium and vitamin E) to provide dry hair with much-needed moisture. Apply the treatment to dry hair and style as usual. This hair mask smooths and protects hair, but does not weigh it down or make it look greasy. You can let the ingredients work for you, while you go about your day!

Nails as hard as nails

The ultimate nude nails are truly naked – but they really do take a beating as we go about our daily tasks. Dry cuticles, damaged nail beds, and flakey, discoloured nails are such an eyesore. However, regular use of moisturiser and treatment nail polish can give you beautiful, well cared for nails.

 

Here’s how to strengthen your nails. Essie All In One Treatment is a clear varnish that promotes stronger nails and protects them from everyday damage while providing an attractive glossy shine that lasts for days. Wear it on its own, or underneath your favourite nail polish colour.

 

Life can be hectic sometimes - we know! That’s why self-love and self-care are so important. Take some time out this weekend and enjoy the relaxing benefits of beauty treatments you can do at home - you’ll be glad you did!
