Need to take a breather from the real world? We get it. While we can’t always make it to the spa, we can certainly recreate the experience at home. Here’s how:
1. Set the mood
Turn your phone on silent, ask your S.O. not to bother you, tell your husband that he’s on his own with the baby for the next hour. Whatever you need to do, remove all distractions so you can focus on you. Pour a glass of tea, wine, sparkling water with cucumber and lemon — whatever helps you relax! And if that’s a teacup filled with whiskey — hey, 2020 has not been easy, so no judgement!
Light Skin Pharm’s Wash Your Face candle to set a relaxing and calming atmosphere. Our fresh, floral signature scent is light yet complex, infused with notes of Italian bergamot, jasmine and California orange. Side effects include feeling like a classic movie star and forgetting about the three loads of laundry that need to be folded.
2. Get comfy
Use your favorite Skin Pharm cleanser to remove makeup and any impurities on your skin. (Papaya Enzyme Cleanser is best for those with oily, combo or acne prone skin, while dry and sensitive types favor Gentle Soothing Cleanser.) Put on your favorite robe, draw a bath and close the door to the outside world.
3. Get your mask on
Just because you’re relaxing with a good book in the tub doesn’t mean you can’t multitask and treat your skin! If you’re looking to remove impurities and reduce the appearance of blemishes and other imperfections, we recommend our Charcoal Mask. This hardworking mask uses kaolin clay and charcoal powder to visibly draw out toxins from your skin and minimize the appearance of pores. Apply the mask to your T-zone (or, if you’re oily or acne prone, to your entire face, avoiding the eye and mouth area) and allow up to 15 minutes to dry. Rinse with warm water.
4. Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!
After your mini spa staycation, be sure to hydrate your skin with our Youth Serum. This ultimate hydration serum instantly plumps and firms your skin, which should be squeaky clean after your masking. Apply a full dropper of serum into hands and massage into your face, neck and décolletage using upward strokes. Let the hyaluronic acid and peptides nourish your skin and diminish fine lines and wrinkles. You will feel refreshed, rejuvenated and ready to face the world again!
