The days are getting shorter. Temperatures are dropping, and the debate about when to turn the heating on has already begun. All of these signs point to one thing – winter is coming. Astronomical winter is said to start on the 21st of December and finish on the 20th of March 2023.
During these colder months, a pamper evening can be the perfect way to end the day. As these colder winter nights rapidly approach, here are a few essentials you should have in your collection for the ideal pamper night to relax after a long day.
Bath Oils, Salts And Soak
The centrepiece for any pamper night is a relaxing soak in the bath. Lighting candles and turning down the lights can help create an ambient scene that encourages a person to unwind and relax. Filling the tub with a selection of bath oils, soaks and salts and mixing aromas can further add to this relaxing atmosphere you are trying to create. You could choose to play calming sounds or have no music playing as you listen to the crackling of the candles. Turn off technology and take a book, or close your eyes and let your troubles melt off you. Soaking in the bath can mark the start of a relaxing evening.
Treat Your Skin
Whilst sitting in the bath, consider treating your skin with a face mask. Choose one best suited for your skin type, and wear it for the duration of your soak in the tub. It could be a sheet mask or a paste – whichever you prefer and will not irritate your skin. The water and oils used in the bath will help to make your skin feel soft and nourished. Add another layer of moisture and nourishment by using a rich moisturiser.
Hair Masks And Oils
Treat your hair during your pamper evening. If you are treating your skin, why not treat your hair? When soaking in the bath, add a mask or treatment to your hair to help nourish it. After the treatment has finished, consider adding an additional treatment to your hair. You could choose to treat yourself to an organic hair oil treatment, such as the ones from Fushi Wellbeing. Adding an organic hair oil to the ends of your hair could add a little more moisture to your hair to lock in the treatments.
Comfortable Clothes Ready To Wear
After finishing your pamper session, consider wearing some comfortable clothes, such as new pyjamas, a cosy dressing gown and fluffy slippers. Being in comfortable clothing after pampering yourself can help prolong the relaxed state you will be in. For added comfort, warm up the clothes by placing them in the tumble dryer or a warm location in the house. This way, when you put them on, you will be treated to the cosiness of the clothes and an added warmth.
Keep these tips in mind as you get everything you need ready for your pamper session. Plan out your ideal pamper evening, where you can unwind and warm yourself up after spending time in the cold. Allow yourself the chance to relax after a busy week, a moment to recharge your batteries. You will be grateful for the pamper session and a moment to relax.
