Weekend Pamper: Fresh Start

I like to start the new year with two main think; 1. a clean room 2. freshly pampered and since it is the last Sunday of the year today seems like the perfect year to achieve at least the latter.

The Body Shop Body Butter here*// Xen Tan Exfoliator * // Estee Lauder Advance Night Repair  // Bleach London Mask here// Moroccan Oil Treatment // Clarins Brightening Toner  // Aromatherapy Associates Minis

The reason I start this task a few days in advance is to remove all of my fake tan which I have only half heartedly removed throughout the year. This for me always required a few soaks in the bath and a good exfoliating session so takes at least two days. I start with a nice long relaxing bath, in which I exfoliate with a glove and also my favourite scrub plus I also take the time to shave as I find it helps with the tan removal.  After the bath I like to use thick body butters for an intensive moisturise.

For my hair I give it a nice long mask which I actually put in 30 minutes before getting in the bath and wrap it in a towel. Once I’ve washed my hair with a clarifying shampoo in my roots I follow it with Moroccan oil to leave it extra shiny.

Of course my skin also needs lots of TLC especially in this cold weather. I go for a good cleanse, face mask, exfoliator, face oil and moisturiser to keep my skin healthy and hydrated.

I’ll start my fake tanning again in the next few days so I can have a nice deep tan by the start of 2014!

    I think if I ever bothered to fake tan I would struggle with the removal. It's nice to pamper yourself from time to time though. Xx

    I also like to start the year with an organised bedroom. I'm currently half way through sorting my wardrobe, I see a trip to ikea on the horizon!

    I'll be starting the new year with a massive clearout! My spare room is a complete mess at the moment, I think a trip to the charity shop is in order!
    I love Aromatherapy Associates – I've ordered the Little Bell in the sale and can't wait for it to arrive xx

    I've just acquired an aromatherapy oil, I didn't realise they were so well loved. Will definitely have to try it now. Also, Moroccan oil is my absolute hair saviour! Turned my hair from frazzled mess to soft locks! x
