So after 5 long months, they've finally gone back to school. Feeling relieved, sad, weird, empty? If you've spent the whole of lockdown trying to fill your days, longing for some headspace, but now have serious mixed feelings about a quiet home - set aside 15 mins for a mood-boosting pamper.
Although we'd love spa day, at-home 'treatments' have undeniable benefits right now. You don't have to travel anywhere, can do them in your lunch break and keep the cost low. Check out these self-care mini treatments from just £9.
What's on the agenda?
- Relieve tension, improve circulation and help tone skin with a simple facial massage. We recommend using our Swipe Clean facial cleansing oil and makeup remover to do 2-in-1, cleanse skin and remove makeup. Watch the video and follow the demo, removing Swipe Clean with warm water or a flannel once finished. If you're a fan of Gua Sha, @elisa_lune also has amazing facial massage demos on her IGTV.
- Rejuvenate and smooth tired skin with Bakuchiol Booster, suitable to add any routine. Bakuchiol is a natural and vegan alternative to retinol (vitamin A), it helps stimulate collagen production, improve skin texture and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Unlike retinol, bakuchiol is safe to use when pregnant or breastfeeding and is not associated with side effects such as increased photosensitisation, dryness or irritation. So it's a great option for those with sensitive skin too. The Boosters can be used to enhance any existing skincare routine. We recommend applying a couple of drops of Bakuchiol Booster as part of your nighttime routine, after cleansing, for smoother, more radiant skin.
- Get an instant regenerated glow and unrivalled softness from Acid Gold, our AHA resurfacing face mask. It combines the power of five natural active AHAs with upcycled pumpkin and papaya enzymes to exfoliate skin and stimulate cell renewal. Skin tone and texture are left visibly smoother and more refined, whilst a nourishing blend of oils leaves skin feeling conditioned and soft after use (not stripped or dry). It's the perfect product for a moment of self-care, and its bright colour makes a great selfie too!
