Do something often that brings a little piece of peace back to your life.
We all have something that gives us the boost we need to carry on. Personally, I enjoy lighting scented candles while taking a bath and then using a few beauty/grooming products to improve both the way I look and feel. So when I begin my relaxation ritual on Friday night I gathered a small arsenal of effective beauty products to spoil myself from head to toe!
Scented candles where in the background while I applied a sample of Matrix's Oil Wonders in Egyptian Hibiscus to my hair. I received this FREE from L'Oreal while looking for something to give my hair increased moisture and shine, in the cool autumn months.The fragrance is distinct and the application is very easy. I apply from root to tip all over then focused on my hair line to really boost the shine and smoothness. This product is formulated for color treated hair but there are several Oil Wonder products in the Matrix line to address a variety of hair types and I like them all.
After my bath, I hydrated with Philosophy's Firming Body Emulsion in the Amazing Grace line which applies smoothly and doesn't leave your skin feeling sticky. The scent is light just like the texture and the results are great.
Finally, I washed my face with a creamy cleanser perfect for hydrating your skin and then dried my face before applying Philosophy's Resurface Microdelivery Dual Phase Peel. I really love this product because it contains Vitamin C which gives skin an incredible glow for days after the peel. In fact, Step 1,the Vitamin C/peptide crystals smells like fresh oranges and gently exfoliates skin while preparing it for the next step. This system is very easy to use, simply apply the activating acids on top of the crystals and rinse after 3-5 minutes. Resurface allows for some modifications if you have more sensitive skin. If you have concerns about over application of the acids I suggest using peel pads which already contain the perfect amount of ingredients for each application. Philosophy offers them as well as many other skin care lines.
A heavenly scented bubble bath, shiny sweet smelling hair, hydrated skin, and a glowing complexion can really do a lot for a girl after a long hectic week! Little things add up so make some time to pamper yourself...you can use my suggestions or create your own routine!
