I start off with a hot bath with all the trimmings, the perfect time to exfoliate all over, wash my locks and shave too. Of course having a luxe shower gel is always a perk and I've been trying out the new Molton Brown Suede Orris* offering which leaves me feel super clean and smelling delicious too. I've also been using up the last of my St Moriz Skin Primer* tube at the moment which helps prep my skin for tanning and gets rid of any dry patches too. For hair, I'm currently alternating between a few, but it's the Maui Moisture Revive and Hydrating Shampoo* that I've reached for quite a lot as it's a nourishing addition to my routine - perfect for Winter and the traditional season.
Next up I like to give myself an even layer of the Isle of Paradise Tanning Water. This re-discovery of mine offers an even, golden tan that lasts for over a week on me and isn't too overpowering when it comes to the biscuit scent that usual fake tanners deliver. I don't like to follow up with any moisturiser until a few hours after as I don't like to disrupt the tan too much and for me, I don't like applying any body lotion before tanning as I find it's too slippery.
As I said, a pamper routine for me isn't just about the products and skincare, but about making a full night of it. Getting the snacks in and popping on a funny flick or TV show. I'm currently watching the fourth series of Plebs and the newest episodes of Derry Girls both of which are worth a watch, but I've got to admit I love a Marvel film too. It's the perfect time to pop on a face mask too and I've just started trying out the Pixi GLOW Sheet Mask* which from first impression is ulra-brightening and makes the skin feel soft.
How do you like to pamper yourself and relax?
