The Pre-Weekend Self Care Routine



Happy Friday! A couple of weeks back I posted a pre-weekend pamper routine up on my Instagram stories. I got quite a few messages with some great feedback so I thought I'd share some of favourites products for a quick self-care pamper session up on the blog too.

SET THE MOOD

First things first, make sure your space has the right vibe. Light some candles, clean up a little, make sure you feel comfortable.

I have really gotten into essential oils recently and this oil collection is the perfect starter set if you are interested! I just pop a few drops into my diffuser and the room smells so good.



HAIR CARE

I am a big fan of hair masks. My hair is rather unruly and generally a hot mess so I like to treat it to a hair mask every week if possible! This week I decided to use the Coco and Eve hair mask. It is all over Instagram because of it's pretty packaging and oh-so-amazing smell but it actually does work wonders! It leaves my hair so soft and nourished and the smell and prettiness on my shelves are just a bonus.



SKIN REGIME

Skincare is a huge step in my routine at the moment and I mostly stick to same steps but with different products now and again. The regime goes - Mask, Cleanse, Tone and Moisturise.

I like to focus the products I use on whatever concerns I have at the time and currently it is hydration.

One of the products I've been using to help bring a boost of hydration to my skin is the Rio Rosa Mosqueta Intensive Night Treatment* which works like a dream. In my moisturise step I just pop a small amount of the product all over my face and gentle massage it in to the skin. I really like how fresh the cream smells and although it is an intensive treatment, it doesn't feel heavy at all.

The brand is 100% natural, cruelty free and their products don't contain any colourings and additives - it is filled with all natural extracts and ingredients from South America. I've mentioned this countless times before, but I'd really like to go all natural / cruelty free when it comes to my beauty products so this is a big help in taking another step towards that goal. I'd really like to try more from the brand, especially as the prices don't break the bank!



ENTERTAIN

Last but not least, I like to do something a little special to finish off my self-care routine. Whether it is settling down to watch my current favourite TV show (The Great British Bake Off and Gilmore Girls - FYI!), meal-planning, writing up / planning blog posts or doing a quick relaxing yoga session, it's just something to make me feel good - because that is what self-care is all about!
