My Winter Pamper Routine

I love a good old pamper session, especially around this time of year when it's too cold to want to do anything. To me, there really is nothing better than being at home, wrapped up in a dressing gown, drinking your favourite hot chocolate and binge watching chick flicks. I know, I'm so life goals!
This routine covers everything from my skincare essentials to my favourite Winter candle. I hope you enjoy it!
Step 1
The first thing I like to do is light a candle. It doesn't matter what size or scent, as long as it's something that clears your mind and sets the mood. I find the Yankee Candle Candy Cane Lane to be very appropriate for this time of year. It gives off just enough scent without being over powering. 

Step 2
Then I like to start my skincare routine. I don't really do anything new for my cleansing and toning but I always like to use a mask when I'm having a pamper. Recently I've really been enjoying the REN Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask. Formulated with 5% Glycolic Acid, this mask helps to exfoliate, brighten and smooth the skin. Once I've removed the mask, I like to follow up with something that's going to hydrate and moisturise my skin. The Oils Of Life Intensely Revitalising Facial Oil from The Body Shop is my go-to and sometimes I use the Twin-Ball Face Massager with it to help with lymphatic drainage and puffiness. 

Step 3
I know a lot of people enjoy doing their nails as part of a pamper routine but personally I find it to be a bit of a chore, however I still like to moisture my hands and feet to stop them getting dry and flaky. Soap and Glory Hand Food and Heel Genius are some of the best creams I've found for this!

Step 4
Now it's time to make a hot beverage. If I'm not particularly bothered, I'll usually just make tea, but if I feel like something slightly more indulgent, it's gotta be a cup of Maltesers Hot Chocolate. This stuff is the bomb!

Step 5
Finally it's time to snuggle up in bed with some entertainment. I think books are perfect for winding down and I'm currently re-reading Sali Hughes Pretty Iconic, which has become a firm favourite of mine! When it comes to picking a film I'm not very fussy, as long as it's kinda girly and a bit rude. For me, Bridesmaids ticks all the boxes...

I really hope you enjoyed this post guys and don't forget to tell me your pamper routine tips and tricks!

Thank you so much for reading!
