I love Friday nights, the working week is behind you and two glorious days of fun, relaxing and doing the things you love are just ahead. The possibilities are endless!
And on Friday nights I love to kick start my weekend with a total pampering session. Not only does a pamper evening help us unwind from the tensions of the week; it also helps prepare us for looking our polished best over the weekend.
So I wanted to share with you my perfect menu for a total skin and soul treat with Pevonia…
First I run a bath into which I pour some Mystique Escape Bath Salts and a few squirts of the Anti-Stress Bath and Shower Gel. The salts help to replenish lost minerals in the body while the aromatherapy oils treat the skin and psyche. I promise your bathroom will smell like a gorgeous day spa and the soothing begins at once.
While the bath is filling I remove all traces of makeup from my skin with a good double cleanse, sometimes I put a deep conditioning treatment in my hair. I then get a glass of cool water to sip in the bath, light some scented candles and turn out the lights. Time to get in.
Once I’ve relaxed and practiced some deep breathing to relieve any tension I get to work…
First I take the Silky Skin Body Scrub and exfoliate my entire body concentrating on dry areas such as the elbows, knees, feet and ankles. This formulation is super creamy and contains wonderful skin softening and conditioning ingredients that remain on the skin.
I follow with the Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser on the face and neck; this gentle formulation polishes rather than scrubs the skin so can be used several times a week to keep the skin buffed and smooth.
Now that my skin is free of dry, pore-clogging cells I massage my face with the Aromatherapy Face Oil Harmony. This is a blend for Combination Skin and I love the fresh, citrus scent. It works especially well in the bath as the steam helps to dilate the skin helping the oils penetrate more easily. It’s very lightweight and silky in texture and I find it helps to balance my oil production rather than exacerbate it. There are two other blends for dry and sensitive skin and I switch them up depending on how my skin is feeling on the day.
I leave the oil on my skin and over the top apply the Balancing Combination Mask which helps to draw the excess oils from the skin leaving only the pure essential goodies behind. The peach and apple extracts in this mask not only smell delicious enough to eat, they brighten the skin leaving it revitalised and glowing!
Sometime later, after the mask has had time to work and I’ve soaked the tension away I remove the mask and hop out of the bath (reluctantly!) I spritz my entire body with the Dry Oil Body Moisturiser and massage it into my damp skin which by now has taken on a lovely luminous sheen thanks to all the wonderful potions. This oil smells so incredible, like a soft floral bouquet and it penetrates the skin so easily leaving it soft and smooth and free of tackiness.
I apply my Evolutive Eye Cream which helps rejuvenate the eye area while I sleep and the Balancing Combination Cream which feels so fresh and light and my skin feels like I’ve just had a professional facial treatment.
At this point I make a soothing cup of green tea and head to bed.
Once there I massage my feet with the Multi-Active Foot Cream which is amazing! It contains salicylic acid which smooths away callous that build up when I’ve been wearing sandals all week. I pop on some sleeping socks and then massage the Multi Active Hand Cream into my cuticles and nails. This brightens the skin and strengthens the nails as you sleep.
Now I feel so completely pampered and relaxed and enjoy some peaceful time sipping my tea and reading my latest book. I always sleep so incredible well after a pamper evening and wake up feeling so rested and restored. The bonus is that my skin always looks it’s very best the next day which is usually a makeup free day for me!
While Friday nights are usually my preferred Pamper Night I often enjoy a pamper evening mid-week too. I highly recommend you do it at least once a week.
