create your spa
When you have our skincare, you have all you need to create a soothing, indulgent and nurturing space for self-care within the comfort of your bathroom. Create your ambience with your favourite, relaxing music. Light a candle to calm your senses and relax your mood. Try to pick a smokeless candle made with essential oils and a relaxing blend (look for lavender, orange, frankincense or jasmine).
boost your hydration
Select a herbal tea to suit your mood...calming, detoxifying, reviving, invigorating. We like lemongrass and ginger which will also clear congestion. Other options include fennel and lemon or chamomile for deep relaxation.
add some softness
In preparation for your relaxing treatment collect some fluffy, cotton towels and bamboo washcloths, warm from the airing cupboard and put them next to you. Put on your favourite comfy pyjamas (or onesie!) Wear whatever you feel comfortable in - no bras allowed!
Fill a foot-bath with warm water and Epsom Salts as a wonderful way to feel immediately relaxed. It will lower your blood pressure and keep you grounded. It also creates a rooted space from which you can complete a facial experience at home.
give yourself a facial and a relaxing massage
Warm our Gently Nourishing Cleansing Balm between your fingers and apply to a dry face and neck. Place both hands over your face for a few moments and inhale the wonderful aroma of grapefruit and lavender essential oils! This will instantly calm and ground you for the wonderful treatment that lies ahead!
Remove the balm with a hot cloth, laying the cloth over your face to allow the heat to penetrate your pores and relax your facial muscles.
Now skin is calm and soft apply a thin layer of Calm & Soothe Face Mask. Leave it on for 15 mins while you give yourself a facial massage. The health benefits of facial massage are amazing. Even a short massage reduces puffiness, drains lymph to release toxins, defines the jaw line, improves circulation and relaxes any tension in the head and face.

decadence at bedtime
Adding a few drops of luxurious plant-oils to your skin once you have removed your mask will nourish and feed your skin with an abundance of vitamins, omegas and antioxidants. Press 3 or 4 drops of the Vitamin-Rich Botanical Day Oil or Overnight Replenishing Oilinto the skin and be sure to inhale the exotic scents of neroli and marjoram or jasmine and frankincense!
