A Guide: Weekend Beauty

Having a weekend beauty ritual is an important step in relaxing for the week ahead. This time should be spent relaxing, socialising and doing the things you just don’t have time for during the week. Scroll down for the best lazy weekend beauty.

Scent Is Key

Having a relaxing scent around you is proven to enhance psychological and physical well-being. As soon as you get into your bathroom, diffuse a scent and let it set the mood for your entire day. This is perfect for trying to recuperate for the busy week ahead.

Detox Your Skin

There are some things in your skin that even cleansing can’t extract. Using a detox mask provides deeper, more rigorous cleaning and brings all the impurities and excess oil to the surface. Using this once a week will help combat congestion and keep your skin smooth and tight.

Rejuvenate Your Scalp

Exfoliating is essential for every part of your body, including your scalp. Using a hair scrub regularly will remove dirt, oil and product build up. This will help combat dandruff, dryness and will keep your locks looking healthier then ever.

Massage Your Products Into Your Skin

Giving yourself a facial massage improves blood circulation and reduces inflammation in the skin. A jade roller is a Chinese skincare tool that has been used for thousands of years to massage the skin. Massaging your product into the skin lets the ingredients penatrate deeply and reduces puffiness in the face.
