Hello my lovelies!
Hope you're all having a super relaxing Sunday? Earlier on today, I decided to put a poll on my Twitter feed with a few blog post suggestions, as I love being able to post content that I know my lovely readers want to see. The overall winner was my Sunday Relaxation Routine, which I've actually been meaning to post for a little while now! I love Sunday as it gives me a chance to refocus and prepare myself for the week ahead, as well as being the perfect opportunity to pamper myself from head to toe. A few of you might know that I do suffer with on and off anxiety and sometimes on a Sunday I can start to feel a little overwhelmed, so this pamper routine is the perfect way to balance out my mood and fill my Sunday evening with lots of positive vibes! I hope you enjoy this post lovelies and I would love to hear from you in the comments section below.
90% of the time I will have a shower in my en-suite for quickness, but when I'm in need of some serious relaxation I always head to the bath. For me a bath wouldn't be a bath without some kind of treat and actually one of my favourite bath treats is a generous helping of Radox! Tonight I used the de-stress one, which is the perfect way to create a soothing and very bubbly bath. I also love to use LUSH products for my relaxation routine, but right now I'm all out!
I'm really into self-help and creating a peaceful mood and atmosphere is a must when it comes to preparing myself for the week ahead. I work in a very high paced marketing/hospitality environment so it's really important for me to settle myself before the week ahead. One of my all time favourite products is the NEOM De-Stress Home Mist which 100% natural and includes 23 of the purest essential oils including lavender, jasmine and Brazilian rosewood to instantly reduce your stress levels. I also light a candle and I'm currently loving Lily-Flame Fairy Dust, which is the ultimate girly pamper evening scent! Finally, I put on some relaxing spa music from YouTube and put on my mood lit Hymilan Rock Lamp (which I will be reviewing separately) and I'm good to go!
My favourite part! I absolutely adore skincare, as most of my readers will already know. So on a Sunday I make the most of my products and treat my skin to a full on facial. I love everything from the different textures to the scents and after my skin is left feeling truly amazing! I start off with my Elemis Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm - My Spa in a jar! or my Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel, followed by my Oskia Renaissance Mask which is a buttery balm designed to boost radiance and reduce the appearance of imperfections using Natural Fruit Acids. After taking the mask off with hot flannel I spritz my face with the Jurlique Rosewater Mist full of Marshmallow, Glycerin, Rose and Aloe to intensely hydrate, balance and soften the skin. Last but definitely not least I load my skin up with the Kyrpis Moonlight Catalyst and 1000 Roses Beauty Elixir, which are two of the best products I have ever tried and layered on top of each other my skin is left in it's best condition. To help them sink in I use my Jade Roller around my eyes and also the central parts of my face to eliminate toxins and improve blood flow, which is especially good to reduce dark circles under your eyes!
Once I'm done with my skincare treats I usually opt for my LUSH RO'S Argon Body Conditioner which is an utterly delicious body conditioner that can be used either in the shower or bath! It's full of nourishing argon oil, vitamin E and Brazil nut and almond oils to leave you with supple and radiant skin. I'm not the best when it comes to body care, but I love that this can be used on wet skin as I tend to forget to condition my skin once I'm out of the shower or bath. To finish off my relaxation routine I apply some of the Elemis Quite Mind Temple Blam to my temples, delicate and the back of my neck to leave me feeling completely relaxed at at ease and ready for the week ahead.
So that's my Sunday Relaxation Routine, which I hope you all enjoyed. I have a pretty exciting month coming up and I'm going to be snap vlogging it all, so make sure you follow me at SC: JewelBeautyBlog If you want to listen to beauty rambles and see lots of behind the scenes and vacation snap vlogging!
