Always remember to take time for yourself.

I love to pamper myself, I mean, who doesn't. If I have an evening to myself I'll light some candles, throw on some music and get really get into the pamper groove. It's so important to set a couple of hours aside every now and then to wind down and treat yourself to some well deserved me time. There's always four things I love to focus on when I pamper myself and those are, bath, body, face and hair, all of which I'll be talking about today. Every so often I'll throw a couple of other bits into the mix, but this is a great base routine to get started with. 


Is it even possible to have a successful pamper evening without running a super indulgent bath? I don't tend to have a bath very often, I'm definitely a shower type of gal. Of a Sunday evening though, I'll light some candles and start running myself a bath. This bath oil from Clarins is great, it has such a relaxing aroma and creates the perfect, calming atmosphere. It adds a nice amount of bubbles too if you mix it around. It has that typical 'spa' scent, infused with camomile, which is soothing and also great for sensitive skin.

There's nothing better than using a body oil which smells good enough to eat. I love this L'Occitane one, I save it for when I want to treat myself as it is more expensive than your standard body lotion or oil. The oil makes your skin feel like silk, such a nourishing formula and also great post-shave as it doesn't irritate the skin. The smell sticks around, it's very sweet and almondy which I adore. If you're on the hunt for a softening body oil which has a divine scent this is worth checking out! Also a top tip I have when it comes to body care is to use a dry brush when possible. This will help with blood circulation and create a smooth, even base for tanning products, and any other body products you may use after.

Face masks are a treat at the best of time, but applying one which smells like roses makes the experience even more luxurious. I love this face mask from Fresh, it makes the skin feel really soft, nourished and supple, the rose also hydrates. If my skin is feeling a bit dull and in need of a treat, this is always what I reach for. It's pricey stuff, but totally worth it.

Hair masks are the one thing I always say I'm going to use x amount of times a week, but it never happens. I seem to always gravitate towards them when I have an evening to myself. This Dove one is lovely, affordable and makes your hair feel really soft and helps repair split ends. I take a generous dollop of this, work it through the ends of my hair and clip it up so it's out of the way. I leave it on for about 15 minutes, pretty much the duration of my bath, then rinse. If you rinse with cold water it'll make your hair shinier!
