Summer Pamper Routine

The current grizzly weather situation in the UK is far from the steaming heat we were having just a mere week ago. Although I'm disappointed that the sunshine hasn't stuck around a little longer, it has given me an excuse to get my pamper on. 

I've got myself a little tan after all the warm weather and I don't feel like I need to use my usual fake tan at the moment, so I've been switching it out for a gradual tanner instead; especially in the areas that haven't got a lot of sun. The NKD SKN Gradual Tanner* leaves a lovely nourishing layer on the skin and I find that using it twice on consecutive days keeps the tan nearly 10 days, at least in my experience. 

My hair definitely needs TLC every so often and up until recently I rarely gave it what it deserved. I did a full post on the Coco and Eve Hair Masque* not long ago so I won't go into much detail, but it's honestly changed my hair care routine so much. I feel excited to whip this out in the shower and treat my hair, especially as it makes styling so easy - it's great for a pamper night in as you can even leave it a little longer to give your locks a proper drink. 

Despite it being a little cooler, I still can't slather myself with lots of luxe, thick lotions as I feel too sticky and irritated, but I have been using a light oil in and out of the shower when I want something that feels very moisturising. The L'Occitane Almond Shower Oil* is amazing at keeping dry patches at bay, whilst the Nuxe Dry Oil* keeps my pins looking super nourished all year round. 

It's hard to narrow it down to one mask, but I've been trying out the Fresh Black Tea Overnight* offering and I'm loving it. It feels like a thick night cream and really packs a punch in terms of hydration. I simply pop this on in the late afternoon/early evening and take it off before I hop into bed to get as much out of it as possible. Combined with the Glossier Mask Duo which work so well together, combatting any blemishes I may have as well as calming general redness down too. 

Products aside, I actually think airing out your room or house by having all the windows open, treating yourself to a fresh bunch of flowers and sticking on your favourite TV series are just a few of the ways to pamper yourself without going too OTT. Catch up on the latest series of Love Island or get lost in a gripping thriller book; it's always nice to take some time out for yourself.
