Don’t we all need a good old Pamper Session every now and then? Well I do and as I’m nearing the end of term at Uni I for sure welcome any Pamper Session I can fit in. There are many ways to destress. So today I’ll tell you about my fave ones. There will be some short pamper sessions as some that take a little bit more of your time.
I have Uni from Monday to Friday and so my days are filled with lectures, studying and home work. But whenever I feel like I need a few minutes to myself, I try to do so. The easiest way for me to destress is by sitting down, sipping some tea and flicking through a magazine or listening to an audiobook. At the moment I’m listening to Harry Potter. This way I take about 15 min to myself. It allows me to destress and do something for my soul too (a Pamper Session for your soul basically). After this quick “pamper session” I feel ready to tackle the rest of the day and my mind is refreshed.
Another thing to do when pampering yourself during the week is a face mask! I slob it on before I take a shower, let it do it’s magic and rinse it off in the shower. Afterwards I continue with my usual skin care routine. Taking the time to do a face mask not only helps with getting some me-time in, cooperating face mask into your skin care routine is set to help with any problems your skin might get and I just love the way my face feels after a good face mask.
On the weekends or on your day off, we all have some more time at our hands. And this is the perfect occasion for an good old Pamper Session. Like even invite your girl friends over and have a big Pamper Session together. There have to be face masks, manicures, some snacks and drinks. It has been ages since I’ve done such one. But last week I went on a spa afternoon with my lovely friend to a Hammam. I had a lovely time and my body felt amazing afterwards from all the steam, heat, masks etc.
So when you don’t wanna splash out on a spa day/afternoon out you can do it all by yourself at home ad at no or really little cost. When I am alone I like to take a long hot shower (a bath would be amazing too), then I pamper my skin with a body cream and add a face mask. My two fave ones are the L’Oreal face mask with active cole and the Rosy Cheeks from Lush. I often combine them. To freshen up my face after the mask I like to spray a good amount of the Eau Roma Water from Lush on. It’s a toner but you can use it to energies your face too.
At the weekends I have time to do my nails too and it goes so well with my Pamper Sessions. A fresh manicure is always a nice touch. I protect my nails with the OPI Natural Nails Base Coat. Letting my manicure dry I like to put on a series, another audio book or just put my feet up and have a little snooze. Not to forget my hair, every other week I try to fit in a hair mask. I take cold pressed coconut oil (I get mine from the local supermarket in the cooking section). Taking a big blob I massage my scalp with it, the lather another big blob all over the rest of my hair and let it sit for at least two hours. After using the coconut mask my hair feels ten times more nourished and so smooth.
All the things above you can obviously do with your friends too. Maybe leave the shower out. And like I said why not put together some fancy drink and have some snacks ready. This way you get a Pampering Session with a great catch up and lots of laughter with your friends. Another way to prevent stress also it to have a stress free morning routine. I wrote a blog post about that here. But whenever you’re in need of some time for your body and soul, try out any of my Pamper Sessions.
However my Pamper Session might look like, it’s always a good way to destress from life and stuff and gives me time to just take a few minutes/hours to myself. I find it so important to look after yourself and to give yourself some love every now ad then. You will see the benefits are just amazing and you will have so much more energy to get on with your day or feel refreshed for the coming week.
