I’ve always been a fan of at home spa nights. Now more than ever I’m really stepping up my self care game and so can you —
Self care looks a little different for everyone and sometimes it's as simple as getting outside with a good book. For me its a hot bath, a glass of wine and my kindle.
There is nothing more relaxing than a warm bath before bed. I usually switch between my scented bath bombs and these magnesium bath flakes. Soaking in a warm magnesium bath can also help relive aches and pains as well as help relieve stress and boost energy levels.
I recently read this article about adding ginger to your baths and how it’s a great way to sweat out additional toxins.
Adding a face mask or salt scrub to your bath is the perfect way to step it up a notch. When your done make sure to follow up with a good moisturizer as the hot water can be drying to your skin.
If skincare is more your thing you may want to check out my newest obsession - facial steaming. It works great for opening up your pores and allowing your skin to better absorb your products. I typically cleanse my face followed by a full cycle of steam which lasts for 10 minutes. I like to follow up with face oil and a cold quartz roller.
I’ve talked about the importance of face rolling before in my am/pm skin care routine post. It’s not only relaxing but helps with product absorption too. Other benefits from facial rolling are decreased puffiness and improved circulation. As part of my morning routine I love using this ice roller as well!
