Beauty routines can be far too habitual.
We become comfortable, oftentimes complacent and continue on the same path relentlessly. It is so much easier to keep on than change anything up. I know I am entirely guilty of this and all it is laziness on my part, that’s all.
Beauty miracles are no longer my holy grail and desiring to look “younger” is a fool’s game but natural, glowing and well-hydrated skin is the hope. Feeling well in myself has become even more important to me and beauty routines play a role. If I am spending time, I want to feel the benefits – not only refreshed skin but also mentally re-charged.
Over the last lockdown, I made myself re-focus.
To think about my beauty habits, change them up and find the 5 routines/products that weren’t merely custom but beneficial, enjoyable and worth practising. Where were the best results? What was I using differently? How did I feel afterwards?
Yes, I have much more time in my days to work on these ideas but the reality was in the long game I didn’t spend any longer.
An Oil Bath.
I’m a bath person and so what goes in can make a difference, especially in the winter when our skin becomes drier. Essences and bubbles are all well and good for the fragrance but nothing beats a good oil for results.
One oil bath before bed, every evening is my recommendation.
Use very sparingly and every evening.
A serum is the one routine I never forget.
Every morning is enough with hydrating creams at night. More does not make for quicker or more enhanced results as tempting as it feels.
The At-Home Facial
Why not? We don’t have to be at the beauty therapist to treat us.
Try this spa-like cleanser for an at-home experience.
This is the one routine I forget. Crazy, because a mask makes a big impact and is easy to do. Watch an episode on your iPad, laze in the bath or catch up on emails. I really have no excuses.
Aim for 3 x weekly; be happy with 2 treatments.
5 ways to change up the routine.
Throwing our regular practices does make all the difference. I’m going to do it more often. xv
