This is how a normal middle week day off looks for me: i do a bit of cleaning, organize my blog posts and then i have a pampering session. I find it very relaxing to be home alone, do my bits and indulge in any beauty rituals i might fancy. Of course i can do all this when himself is at home, its just more fun when i have some ‘me’ time’. Love you babe!
I start my weekly pampering with a hot long bath to open the pores, then exfoliate and smooth out every bit of my face and body, getting ready for the face masks. I invested in some Origins face masks after being bombarded with positive reviews everywhere i looked. VivaAdonis im looking at you.
Firstly, i would apply the Origins Clear Improvement Charcoal mask to draw every impurity out and detoxify my skin. Ain’t i pretty as a picture? You can see now why i prefer to do all this in private. Leaves my face smooth and detoxed, a dream for a oily combination girl.
After i take it off using a little luffa sponge (get them in The Body Shop), i proceed to spray my face with a thermal spray (currently using La Roche Posay) to calm and soothe the skin. Pat dry with a tissue, if you let it dry on the skin it actually dehydrates due to the salt content.
Next is the Origins No Puffery Eye Mask to help reduce my dark circles and refresh that whole area up. I keep it in the fridge for extra coolness, labeled clearly ‘do not eat’ for you know…safety. I generally let it soak in and let it in until the next day, i only remove it after 15min when i slap it on in the morning for quick wake me up fix.
Finally i finish my day, sporting the Origins Drink Up Intensive Mask for a maximum hydration boost. I leave it over night in the hope i will wake up with smooth, plump skin. I might be using this mask even 2-3 times a week, depending how windy or dehydrating my day was.
Glass of wine in my hand, im ready for the next working day!
