Long Weekend Beauty Tips

Long Weekend Beauty Tips

Woohoo, long weekend is nearly here so why not take advantage to catch up on your beauty routine. Take the time out for luxurious pampering that’ll make you feel like a goddess. There’s no need to go to a retreat or an expensive destinations spa, here are a few things you can do at home that bring the glo back into your skin.

Bath detox

Start your weekend with a luxurious detox bath. Warm bath therapy encourages a deep sense of relaxation, and the detoxifying bath blend will encourage the elimination of toxins.
Here is a simple recipe for a detox bath you can make yourself at home:

1 cup of Epsom salt
2 cups of soda bicarbonate
1 cup sea salt
Optional  – a few drops of Aromatherapy Essential oils such as:

  • Juniper
  • Grapefruit
  • Lemon
  • Geranium
  • Lemongrass
  • Rosemary

You don’t have a bath? Not to worry, you can do a detox foot soak instead! You can use the same ingredients in a large bowl of warm water, just reduce the quantities, substitute the cup for tablespoons. Sit back, relax, and soak for at least 10 minutes.

Body Scrub

Remember how great your skin feels after a good body scrub? This long weekend you have plenty of time to give your skin a good scrub to remove the dead cell build up revealing a beautiful skin. We have a selection of delicious body scrubs by Pure Fiji that will take you away on a sensorial escape to the tropics. Come in and try some and select one that you love the best!

Sleeping Mask

Skincare does not have to be complicated, you can give yourself a rejuvenating treat overnight with a sleeping mask. Sothys has a number of overnight masks you can leave on that work while you sleep:

Hydra-Smoothing mask
This creamy mask instantly envelops the skin with softness upon application. When it is removed, elasticity is fully restored to the skin. The skin appears smoother and visibly younger.

HMW Ha in the formula provides a free form of Hyaluronic acid for immediate hydration together with 1055 Boletus extract to boost the skins own hyaluronic acid production.

The mask may be left on the skin overnight, when an immediate hydration boost is required, or remove excess 10-15 minutes after application.

Chrono-Destressing Sleeping mask
A concentrated formula with anti-ageing and oxygen-like actives and also ingredients to brighten and restore skin well-being.

When applied using the exclusive Sothys relaxing application technique, this mask is the first step towards letting go, and its delicate mandarin fragrance promotes relaxation and a sound sleep.

Erases the visible signs of daytime damage caused by the environment and premature ageing caused by lack of sleep…particularly effective on tired skin lacking brightness – shift workers, air crew and new parents!

Nutri-Soothing Mask
Emergency care which envelops skin in the softness of its melting texture, maintaining the balance of sensitive skin and relieving sensations of discomfort.

Spa thermal water is combined with blue argeratum extract and red algae to immediately reduce redness, itching or stinging sensations and limit the emission of inflammatory messengers while balancing the skins long term tolerance threshold.

Immediate softening, decongesting and soothing effect (alleviation of redness).

Protect Your Skin From The Sun

Long weekends are about getting out into the nature and enjoying  a little sunshine. Whether you are you going to the beach or you’re having a picnic in the park, going for a run or taking a gym class outside, make sure that you protect your skin from UV damage with a good broad spectrum sunscreen. We love the Manola Sun Shield SPF50 with Aloe Vera and Vitamin E antioxidants. This sunscreen smells divine with Rose essential oil and has a dry touch finish so it doesn’t feel heavy or greasy on your skin. You’ll love it too!

Take advantage of this long weekend or really any weekend to take time out for yourself for some self love and self-care. With these easy to do beauty tips you can do at home, we wish you a very happy long weekend!
