We can all always benefit from a good pamper night. So today I’m taking you guys through the best pamper night of all-damn-time.
First things first, your attire. You’ve got to make sure you dress for the occasion. If you’re a girl, take. off. that. bra. There is absolutely no reason for you to still have it on for a pamper night, so remove that immediately. Next is a comfortable oversized shirt/pyjamas, anything that makes you feel cosy and relaxed. Then put your hair up, in any style you like, just so long as it’s out of your face, otherwise you’re going to have a mess with face masks/moisturising.
Now we move onto products and entertainment.
A big fluffy cushion | For putting your feet up, or resting your weary head, a big cushion is a must-have.
Soft blanket | Again, a must-have. For feeling cosy and warm while watching tv, or wearing as a cape as you stroll to the freezer for an ice-cream.
Tablet/Phone | Whether you’re sharing your pamper night on social media, watching a movie, listening to music, or you’re just chatting to your friends.
Micellar water | Just as important as bra-removal, makeup-removal. Pamper night is all about treating yourself and your skin, with a cleanse. I really recommend this particular micellar water because it’s 3 in 1, so you don’t need a strenuous cleansing routine, this even moisturises!
Face wash | The perfect thing for the aforementioned skin-cleanse. I use Garnier’s Gentle clarifying foam, because it clears impurities, clarifies skin, and removes any lingering makeup after you’ve removed it. But it’s still gentle on skin, meaning you won’t be left feeling scrubbed raw.
Bath bomb/bubble bar | Having a bath is always an essential when it comes to nights in and pamper nights. But on a pamper night you’ve really got to go all out, bubbles, bath bomb, candles and heck maybe even flower petals, because you freakin’ deserve it.
Night moisturiser | Of course any moisturiser will do, but many overnight moisturisers have extra skin renewing benefits that regular ones don’t. As your skin repairs and renews itself overnight, you’ll be surprised with the difference if you moisturise before bed.
Hand cream | People all too often forget their hands when moisturising, so I’d say opt for a hand rescue cream for a pamper night.
Nail varnish | After moisturising your hands I think it’s always nice to treat yourself to a little mani-pedi. Plus having done your nails usually puts you out of action for a little while, so you’re almost forced to sit still and relax.
A suitable beverage | Whether you’re in a real need of a pamper night, and therefore your drink of choice is red wine, or you just want an accompanying comfort drink such as hot chocolate or tea, make sure you’re staying hydrated!
Candles | And finally, the best thing for setting the mood. I’m never more relaxed than when I can smell a Fresh Linen Yankee Candle. Pick your pamper nights signature scent, and away you go!
And that’s it for my pamper night recommendations, let me know if there is anything specific that you do when you’re having a pamper night!
Again, apologies for this post being released late last night, that WAS a fault, and I am still posting only on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays!
