Treat Yourself: When your best night out means staying IN
While we all love a crazy night out, sometimes the best night out is a night in. A little candle light, a glass of bubbly (okay maybe a bottle) and all your favorite skin care products lined up to give yourself (and your skin) some much needed me time. We’ve got all the best products to get you ready for the perfect pampering night in.
Set the mood
Get rid of all the noise and stress that clutters your mind and take a break from the day to day grind. Make your me time a sacred weekly ritual. In a city where the default #mood is to keep hustling, this is not always the easiest thing to do.
Setting the mood to help you unplug and unwind is important and aromatherapy can instantly help you relax. So ditch the phone, draw a bath, play your favorite tunes, and light a candle.
We suggest the Potion Collection candles by Spitfire. Packed with essential oils and prepared in the Egyptian tradition, light a match and let the Egyptian Goddess of love, Hathor, fill your room with scents of iris, bergamot, vetiver, and musk.
Slip into something silky
The next step is to get comfy and the next best thing to being naked is wrapping yourself up in silk. This silk and lace trimmed robe from Tadashi Soji is the perfect piece to have you feeling like the pampered princess you are.
Treat the skin you’re in
Now that you’ve relaxed it’s time to give your skin some extra R&R.
Our favorite korean skin care line, Lapcos, has an amazing line of charcoal products to help cleanse, nourish, and rejuvenate the skin.
The charcoal bubble cleanser is a fun and effective treatment that creates oxygenating bubbles that clean pores, eliminated impurities, and gently exfoliates the skin. This leave the skin feeling clean and refreshed.
After cleansing you can put on a facial mist to give you skin an extra boost of hydration and follow with your choice of charcoal sheet mask or bubble mask.
For the sheet mask, just unfold and place on your skin for 10-20 minutes. After peeling it off, pat the remaining serum into your skin so that it absorbs the remaining nourishment. Charcoal masks are good for extracting toxins in skin and tightening pores.
The Charcoal peel off bubbles mask is formulated with Kaolin, Bentonite clay, charcoal powder, and fruit extracts that gently purify the skin. Apply on to a clean and dry face wait for the mask to bubble up. Once the bubbles appear leave on your skin for 10 -15 minutes and peel off. Wash off any remaining residue.
By consistently applying these products (gentle enough for using multiple times a week) you will notice the difference in your skin.
A little self love goes a long way!
