As modern women, we are in a constant hustle! There’s always a thing to do (sometimes a thousand), a meeting to attend or something new to solve. Anyways, we’re always in heavy motion! However, we never loose our women instinct, as we constantly want to keep our nails neat, our hair shiny and our clothes on point. But unfortunately, with all those things in our mind, sometimes we might forget to take care of our skin, which deteriorates with constant exposure to the sun, pollution and the inappropriate use of make up.
We understand that with a very busy agenda, it results almost impossible to schedule a monthly visit to the spa, but we’re here to help! We’ll show you a series of steps and recommendations so that you can easily enjoy a spa day at home –yes, it is a good as it sounds!
The first step to any relaxing spa day is setting the mood. Tuning into your favorite relaxing Spotify music station and lighting your must have candle, is key. A Nest Classic Candle will transform your bathroom into a relaxing haven.
Properly remove your entire make up: This is the first step and one of the most important to maintain a healthy skin and of course, we couldn’t exclude it from our spa day! The skin on our face is extremely sensitive, which is why we must remove our makeup with products that also eliminate all impurities and don’t mistreat our skin. If you’re looking for the right product, Jane Iredale’s Magic Mitt ($13.99) is an excellent choice; it is the kind of make-up remover that doesn’t require the use of any other additional products. With the Magic Mitt, we’ll only need to rub the cloth with kindness on our face and Voila! Magic Mitt not only cleans our skin, but also makes a subtle exfoliation.
Wash your face: After removing all of our make-up, it is essential to use a good cleanser to make our face look and feel 100% clean. However, we must select a product that will ensure it will remove any makeup residue and that is appropriate for our skin type. By applying the SkinMedica Facial Cleanser ($23.99) in our face, we’ll achieve a much more moisturized, smoother and cleaner skin. This soap is recommended for any type of complexion. In addition, its formula contains green tea that gives an air of freshness to our skin.
Now, it is time for a facemask! No spa day is complete without masks since we love the fact that right after applying them, we can see immediate positive results on our skin face. For a rejuvenating and revitalizing effect on our skin, we recommend the Peter Thomas Roth Un-Wrinkle 24k Gold Sheet Mask Mask ($49.59). This mask has become very famous because of the fact that in only 15 minutes, it gives a more youthful appearance to our face. Moreover, it is specially designed to conceal lines of expression and bring shine and softness to the skin. If you want another option, the Dr. Brandt Oxygen Facial Flash Recovery Mask ($47.99) offers a different kind of results since it focuses on helping our skin to absorb the oxygen better, purifies the face by eliminating toxins and it protects you from those agents that can contaminate your skin. Sounds great right? Trust us, it is amazing!
Apply some toner: Many people think that applying toner to our face is not very important, However, it turns our that applying toner is one of the most important steps in order to get a healthy skin. Toners revitalize and rejuvenate our faces while it closes the pores, restores the pH, moisturizes and refreshes the skin. Don’t worry if you ever though toner wasn’t important, that’s why we want to recommend the Bliss Steep Clean Pore Mattifying Toner Pads ($27.99) for this important step on our home spa day. These easy-to-use pads purify the skin, remove dead skin cells and reduce pore size thanks to the combination of enzymes and acids contained on its formula. They are recommended for any type of complexion!
Lets moisturize! Last but not least, let finish our home spa day session by applying a good moisturizer. Avene Hydrance Optimale Light Hydrating Cream ($18.99) will nourish your skin to the fullest without leaving a greasy appearance. This product prevents the dehydration of your skin and eliminates excess glitter and oil. It’s just what we need to pamper our skin!
Having a spa treatment has never been so easy! Remember to follow each of these steps to get magnificent results on your face. You’ll see how your friends will want to join you on your spa days at home after they see your skin looking bright and vibrant!
