How to have the ultimate self-care night this Valentine's day:
Oh, Valentine’s day with your overpriced flowers and the unnecessary reminder that you’re single. For some valentine’s day can be daunting, but in recent years there has been a very welcoming shift of self-love on the 14th of February. Gone are the days of watching romcoms by yourself and being sad. Instead, it’s now replaced with celebrating how incredibly amazing you are!
This Valentine’s day we are celebrating self-love regardless if you’re single or in a relationship. Below is a guide on how to have the ultimate self-care night this Valentine’s day!
One: Deep cleanse your face
There is no better way to feel refreshed then by deep cleaning your skin. We recommend to deep-cleanse your face, start with a facial exfoliant. Exfoliators get rid of the nasty build-up of dead skin cells and pore-blocking impurities. We love our smoothing facial exfoliant because it contains rosehip powder that gently buffs away dead skin cells and strawberry and watermelon that exfoliates and brightens the skin!
After you have exfoliated, you should cleanse your skin with whatever product you usually use. We recommend our gentle gel cleanser. It fights ageing, reduces inflammation, improves complexation, and that is only scraping the surface of the benefits! It pairs together so nicely with our exfoliant and will leave your skin feeling refreshed, soft and most importantly deep-cleansed.
After you have thoroughly washed your face, it’s time to move onto phase 2 of your ultimate self-care night, complete relaxation!
Two: Soak in a bath with Epson salts
Soaking in a bath with Epson salts will put your whole body into relaxation mode. When the salt is put into the water, it releases magnesium and sulphate ions, which is then absorbed into your skin. The salt helps to free stiff joints, sore muscles and relieve stress. It’s cheap at only $6 at Woolworths for one Kilo and will help you relax and destress!
Three: Apply our 24K Gold eye masks
While in the bath soaking you should definitely be using our 24K Gold eye masks. They help diminish puffiness and dark circles while reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. They also smell amazing! These masks will help finish off your double cleanse and will be so cool on your face while the rest of your body soaks in hot water.
Once out of the bath to finish of your self-care night, moisturise! It will make your skin feel amazing and is the perfect finisher to your salt bath! We adore our collagen moisturiser and think it would be the perfect product to end your skincare routine. It increases collagen, elastin, and hydrates and nourishes the skin.
Five: Watch your favourite show or read a book
To finish the night, there is nothing better than climbing into bed and watching your favourite movie, TV show or reading a book. You’ll be feeling refreshed from your bath and skincare products and will be so ready to tune out for the night.
Bonus option: Buy yourself flowers
There is something so great about buying flowers for yourself. You get to choose what type of flower you want and can really treat yourself. They brighten up any space and are a great reminder that you don’t need a partner to buy flowers for you because it’s most important that you love and treat yourself!
