This time of year my focus always shifts on to wellness and self care. My mood always dips slightly as the season changes. The colder, wetter weather and darker mornings and nights are not something I enjoy at all. Even if your mood doesn’t change with the seasons we’re moving in to a busy, expensive and stressful time of year, Christmas. Today I’m sharing my tips and tricks on how to have a perfect pamper night to relax the body and mind.
How to have a perfect pamper night – why you need to
Most of us know we need to look after ourselves, body and mind, but I’m sure a lot of us forget about ourselves in our busy days. With working, looking after families, housework, exercise and cooking etc it can seem like there just aren’t enough hours in the day as it is. But you can’t look after anyone else or keep running at full speed if you don’t make some time for yourself too. The more you put in to your self care the more you will get out of it.
How to have a perfect pamper night
The majority of my perfect pamper night takes place in the bathroom. For me, my bathroom is my happy place. A place where I can be totally alone to relax and hide myself away from the world. I don’t have the bathroom of dreams, it’s super small but has everything I need and I have made it a cosy, relaxing space. My ultimate house goal is a large bathroom with a huge freestanding bath. Imagine the relaxation (and insta photos) I could get in one.
How to have a perfect pamper night – Tip one
If I am having a pampering night I have to start with a clean and tidy house. There is nothing worse than spending an hour or so pampering myself only to have to do the washing up or ironing afterwards.
How to have a perfect pamper night – Tip two
Change the bedsheets. Getting in to clean, fresh bedding is the best feeling in the world. And getting in to clean, fresh bedding after a perfect pamper night is even better.
How to have a perfect pamper night – Tip three
Have a long hot bath. Add your favourite bath bomb, bubble bath or bath oil and soak all the stress and tension away. I love relaxing in mine with just candlelight and wearing a face and hair mask whilst I’m soaking to make it even more luxurious.
How to have a perfect pamper night – Tip four
Pamper your skin. Whilst I religiously stick to my facial skin care routine I can’t say the same for the rest of my skin. So a good exfoliate then moisturise with my favourite body butter or lotion is a real treat.
How to have a perfect pamper night – Tip five
Treat your tastebuds. I love a huge mug of hot chocolate or a glass of fizz when I’m relaxing. A bar of chocolate or slice of cake is always a good idea too.
How to have a perfect pamper night – Tip six
Give yourself a manicure and pedicure. A lot of you already know I am a former nail blogger so always keep up to my nails but if you don’t, do them. A fresh manicure always makes me feel happier and more “put together”.
How to have a perfect pamper night – Tip seven
Have an early night. That crisp fresh bedding will feel amazing after a perfect pamper night. Curl up in bed with a book or your fave Netflix show and enjoy the rest.
