Right now, more than ever, it’s important to take some time to really look after yourself and take your pampering sessions to another level. While a lot of self-care practices focus on your inner state, exercise and mentality, it’s also important to pamper your outer self so that you feel and look good. So close the bathroom door and put your feet up because here are some top products to help you execute the perfect at-home pamper routine.
Start with a luxurious cleanser
Choose a creamy cleanser that will rid your skin of the most stubborn impurities without leaving it tight or uncomfortable. A go-to for us is the SENSAI Silky Purifying Creamy Soap because of its rich texture and hydrating formula of Hydrolysed Silk, which keeps the skin supple, while clarifying extracts remove excess oils and debris. A little goes a long way with this creamy cleanser as a pea size amount will thoroughly clean the whole face to leave it feeling balanced and as soft as silk.
The perfect time to peel
Self-care sessions are the perfect time to use an exfoliator to transform your complexion and prep your skin for any further serums and treatments. The PRIORI 2xfoliant Peel + Scrub LCA fx160 can be used on the face and body and contains a LCA complex which features Lactic Acid and essential vitamins to loosen and buff away stubborn dead skin cells. It also includes an Anti-Irritant Complex which is made up of a cocktail of Bisabolol and Allantoin to keep the skin calm while preventing any post-treatment inflammation.
When in doubt, mask it out
Nothing screams self-care like a face mask but instead of choosing your normal sheet mask, why not really treat yourself with the Clarifying Mask by Tata Harper. This lavish mask is formulated with a blend of exfoliating actives which enable it to tackle everything from blocked pores and uneven tone to blemishes. Its impressive formula includes AHAs, Salicylic Acid and Quartz Sand Micro-Crystals which gently exfoliate and soften rough patches – expect your skin to look more radiant and nourished than ever before.
Blanket the skin in hydration
Is there anything more pampering than an ultra-nourishing moisturiser? The SkinCeuticals Triple Lipid Restore 2:4:2 melts into the skin and imparts a cooling, refreshing sensation which instantly awakens a tired, lacklustre complexion. Its formula of 2% Ceramides, 4% natural Cholesterol and 2% Fatty Acids restore nourishment levels and boost skin barrier function, all while infusing the complexion with essential hydration.
Don’t forget your body
If you’ve got some extra time right now, then give the skin on your body some love with a gorgeous product like the Dermalogica Phyto Replenish Body Oil. Unlike some body oils, this one is ultra-lightweight and absorbs into the skin quickly, infusing it with Fermented Red Ginseng to calm and nourish the skin. Its delicate fragrance of Bergamot, Orange and Neroli will transport you to a spa environment from the comfort of your own home, allowing you to relax and unwind for as long as you can justify.
