I love a good pamper night, especially when I am not feeling so great. I thought I had got away with not getting a cold or the flu this winter season but I was wrong. There is nothing worse than feeling poorly and all you want to do is stay in bed day after day. Then you finally get the energy to have a shower and it is like you are a new person. I haven’t been nearly as bad this time and have actually managed to have the energy to shower everyday. As it is Sunday today, I thought I would take some extra time out of my day and just relax and have a nice pamper session.
I tend to have a routine when I want to really relax and pamper myself. I start by cleaning my room, this always makes me feel so much better and it just helps to declutter the mind when you have a clean space. Then I will pick out some comfy pyjamas and bed socks and set them on my bed. I’ll then head to the bathroom and pick a Lush Bath bomb or Bubble Bar. I’ll run a nice hot bath and just soak in there for about 30 minutes. This really helps to clear the sinuses especially when you are sick. After I have had a bath I will usually have a quick shower just to rinse off and wash my hair.
Once I get out I’ll wrap my hair in a hair turban. Then I will apply a nice thick body lotion. At the moment I have been using the Zoella Beauty Creamy Madly Dreamy Body Lotion. I love this becuase it soaks in super quickly and doesn’t leave my skin feeling greasy. Then I’ll light a candle. Depending on how my skin situation is going, ill probably use a face mask as well. When I am sick I love the Soap and Glory No Clogs Allowed. This mask is great when you are sick because it has that menthol sort of scent which helps clear your nose. It also heats up on your face which feels really relaxing. I will leave this on for about 5-10 minutes and then wash it off with a warm face cloth. I also really enjoy sheet masks when I am sick. My personal favourites are a Korean brand SKIN79. They have a great variety for different skin problems. Once my face is super clean I’ll moisturise it and apply spot cream to any spots if I need to.
After all my hygienic pampering is done I like to head downstairs and make a cup of tea. I mean usually it will be a classic English Breakfast but when I am sick I like something more herbal. Today I decided to have a mint matcha. I’ll then take my tea upstairs and I’ll set up my bed and watch a movie or catch up on a tv show. At the moment I am catching up on Keeping up with the Kardashian because I am a sucker for reality tv.
This pamper routine is great for any day of the week and any occasion. It is really nice to include take some time out of your week at least once as it encourages you to just be yourself, relax and rewind. That’s why I like to do it Sunday afternoons/nights as it helps me prepare for the week.
