Sometimes, we all just need to take a break and recharge - but we see this as something we should do once in a while. Well, we're here to argue that you can do this more often than you think! By changing up your routine, you can ensure that the time that you spend away from the hustle and bustle of life will mean that you wake up every morning feeling re-energised. One of the most important things that people forget to do is to create a relaxing environment at home - this means no harsh lights (even phones have a night time mode) and relaxing smells that bring that feeling of zen. Whether you want to do yoga, pillow sprays that induce sleep or light your favourite candles and diffusers enriched with the perfect fragrance, make sure that your brain knows its time to unwind.
It always seems like such an effort to come home, fill up the tub and take a bath - but it works wonders. Baths can help to relax an over stimulated and restless mind. Find the ingredients that work the best for you - lavender works with your senses and helps with reduce any tension you may have in your joints. Rosemary is great if you have time in the morning and want to skip the mandatory coffee because it acts a pick me up in the AM or helps to re-energise you in the evening. Chamomile not only helps put you to bed but is fantastic to soothe irritated skin. Always use a few drops of essential oils, a bath oil/soak or make it fun with some great bath bombs! Top tip: Roll up a towel and put it behind your neck for an inexpensive bath pillow!
Nothing beats the feeling of washing away the day, except for maybe scrubbing it away? Considered one of the most important aspects of your skincare regime, there are plenty of benefits of exfoliating. It helps to increase blood circulation which helps you get that wonderful glow. By removing the dead skin cells, you're unclogging pores and leave the skin with a refreshed and clean feeling. Once you're squeaky clean, remember its important to moisturise to keep your skin supple and soft!
