Self-care is something that I make a point to do every single day, and I am very open about how much of a self-care advocate I am. I love skincare, relaxing, and simply taking some time for me. Taking it a step further and setting an entire night aside to dedicate to pampering yourself will help you feel rejuvenated and relaxed.
Here are some ideas of what you can do to have the perfect pamper night and enjoy some ‘me time’.
Draw a relaxing bath
Start by setting up your bathroom for a relaxing bath. Do a deep clean, set out fresh towels, and set your space however you like it. Then draw your bath and add in your favorite combination of essential oils, Epsom salt, flower petals and a bath bomb. A bath is a great way to release tension in your body and help calm the mind as you relax. Plus, there is something about a bath over a shower that screams pamper night.
Apply a facemask
I love a good facemask. After removing makeup and a gentle cleanse, apply a facemask to target a specific skin concern and indulge in a little extra skin treatment while you take your bath and let it soak in. Natural and gentle products like those from the skin care line of Blue Lagoon feel luxurious and will treat your skin without stripping it.
Light a candle
A gorgeous smelling candle adds to the ambiance of your pamper night and can help you to relax. With its soft lighting, you can turn off direct lights and further ease into that state of calm.
Pour yourself some champagne
A glass of champagne is so often saved for celebration, and a night of pampering is cause for celebration! Treat yourself and pour yourself some champagne, sipping while you continue with your self-care night.
Indulge in something sweet to eat
Those sweet treats you wait to have so you can savor every bite? Bring those out for this! Indulge in something sweet.
Get lost in a good movie or book
Sometimes it’s a good book, sometimes it’s a great movie. Select a book or movie before you start your pampering night so you don’t have to waste any precious time choosing what to watch! Then sit back, relax, sip on that champagne, enjoy your sweet treat, and get lost in a good movie.
These are just a few ideas of what you can do for the perfect pamper night. A couple other ideas are to do your nails, do a body treatment, and use a lavender pillow spray to promote good sleep. Your perfect pamper night and “me time” can look like whatever you want it to, focusing on things that make you relax and feel good.
