The value of one’s free time cannot be overstated.
When you have a lot on your plate, it might seem like all you do each day is rip your body out of a comfortable bed in the morning and then collapse back into it at the end of the day. This is especially true if you have a lot of work to complete.
When things become a little hectic, I believe it’s very essential to make sure you schedule a few activities that allow you to devote some time to treating yourself in a way that makes you feel a little bit more special. I think this is extremely important. So ta-dah!! Here are seven of my favourite beauty delights that are sure to brighten up even the gloomiest day of January…
The Mani for Your Desktop:
While you’re deciding what to watch on Netflix next, give your cuticles a little TLC by massaging OPI Avoplex To Go Oil into them for a few minutes. The use of this TLC is not only comforting and relaxing, but it will also be appreciated by cuticles that are ragged and dry. The luscious avocado extract will invigorate your senses and add a dash of elegance to your workday, both of which are much-needed additions.
This is a beauty routine that is perfect for the workplace since it simply takes a few minutes and there is no excuse for not doing it!
Try Replacing Your Conditioner With A Hair Mask Instead:
If you give yourself a deep conditioning treatment in the evening, you will wake up with hair that is smoother and more shiny than it was before. The majority of masks should only be kept on for around 5 minutes, thus this is a very efficient way to treat yourself. I really like using Kerastase masks because they never leave my hair feeling weighed down, and as soon as you emulsify them with water and start to rinse them out, your hair simply feels unbelievably smooth. I highly recommend them.
A Candle Is Everyone’s Favorite…Right?
You haven’t tried the correct scented candle yet if you don’t enjoy the smell of them. The act of lighting a candle sends a signal to my brain that it is now appropriate to unwind and be at ease. It doesn’t matter whether I’m still working on my laptop; having a gentle glow from the candles and a calming scent around me makes the experience more pleasurable. If you are looking for something really luxurious, try Neom, Decleor, or Mary Greenwell; otherwise, you just cannot match a Yankee Candle; in addition, the smaller amounts of these candles are incredibly wallet-friendly.
Oh, and candles absolutely qualify as “beauty treatments,” given that smell is their primary component (this should go without saying).
The Lip of the Statement:
When I’m genuinely feeling a little bit worried and whining, one of the foolproof ways to seem like I’ve got it all together is to put on a strong lip colour. I find that it makes me look more put together. A splash of luscious colour on your lips gives you an immediate boost of confidence, and it makes me feel more prepared for the day. The Gigi shade of Daniel Sandler Luxury Matte Lipstick is my personal favourite; it’s almost hard to keep a frown on your face when you’re sporting such a cheery hue.
