About an hour before I go into the shower, I begin my spa day process. After thoroughly brushing out my hair, I take a tablespoon of coconut oil and coat my hair from about the ears down. Then I take a tablespoon amount of Lush's Roots Hair Treatment and massage it into my scalp for about 2-3 minutes. I love how tingly this stuff feels. Then it's time to throw up this mop into a messy bun.
When it's time to shower, I use Big Shampoo to wash everything out. I feel like after using these heavy masks, I want to use a good shampoo to get everything out.
When I hop into the shower, I use a body scrub, I have really been loving this sugar scrub in the vanilla scent from Bath and Body Works. I pay particular attention to my knees, elbows and heels since they tend to be drier than the rest of my body.
Post shower, I moisturize all over with a body butter. About once a month I use these hand and foot masks that I get from my local Asian supermarket. If you do only one pampering treatment, I totally recommend one of these masks. My feet feel so rejuvenated afterwards and my hands look amazingly bright.
After I wash my face and exfoliate in the shower I use my Body Shop Honey & Oat Exfoliating Mask. This is a great thick scrub like mask. After the scrub mask, I follow up with this Body Shop Vitamin E Sink In Mask to replenish the moisture in my super dry skin.
During allergy season my eyes always look super blah, so I have been loving these under eye masks that can also be purchased at your local Asian supermarket. If you have never tried an eye mask, I totally recommend it as you really do feel pampered afterwards.
Sunday is time to catch up on all of your reading and trashy tv show watching. Also, try to drink a lot of water during your pampering sesh. You're getting rid of a lot of gunk in your body, why replace it with soda or fruit juices?
