Today marks the half-way point of my winter break. It’s 7 degrees out, there’s not too much I have to do today, and my skin, nails, and hair could use a refresher. So, I gave myself some time to have some home-spa time.
For the face:
1. Wash: For years now I’ve been using Clean & Clear Morning Burst face wash in the shower. The beads in it make your
face feel super clean after washing.
2. Peel: Every once and a while, a facial peel needs to be done. It’s gross, but afterwards your skin feels baby-soft. Just apply a little bit of Vivo Per Lei Facial Peel to your face and gently rub it in. After a bit of rubbing, you’ll start to see your dead skin coming off. Rinse everything off.
3. Moisturize: Vivo Per Lei Moisturizer is the greatest moisturizer I’ve ever used in my life. Apply a small amount, you don’t want to over-do it. This moisturizer works as a great base for make-up, too!
For the hair:
1. After washing and conditioning, apply some Moroccan Argan Oil to towel-dried hair. Comb it through and then let it sit.
2. Lay off the heat: Blow-drying, straightening, curling, etc. can make your hair brittle and dry-looking. If you don’t have anywhere to go, let your hair air-dry.
For the body:
1. Wash: Use a body wash made for sensitive skin, even if you don’t necessarily have it. I use Dove Sensitive Skin Body Wash (I do actually have very sensitive skin) and it works wonders.
2. Moisturize: Lately I’ve been using Jergens Ultra Healing lotion for extra dry skin. Now, I know everyone isn’t plagued with the snakeskin-like winter skin like I am, but I’m sure Jergens offers lotions for all skin types.
1. Remove dead skin: Today I used True Blue Spa Fine & Sandy foot scrub. Using it is just like walking on the beach, after you put it on your skin is soft again. Use a foot scrub to get the excess dry skin off.
2. Apply a moisturizer after rinsing off the foot scrub.
For the nails:
2. Paint: Use O.P.I. Nail Laquer, it hardly ever chips and looks wonderful for quite a while.
