Pamper Your Skin with an At Home Beauty Day

As we find ourselves at home more often, our daily routines changed, it’s important we still take some time for ourselves – and what better way to de-stress and self-care with a day of pampering.

See our guide and recommended products below from our skincare experts for an at-home spa day.

Cleanse, Detox & Exfoliate

The first step for any skincare treatment is to cleanse the skin. Remove make-up, impurities, dead skin cells and excess oils to give yourself a clean base.

Bioderma Hydrabio H2O: A daily cleanser for dehydrated and sensitive skin. This Micellar water cleanses, removed make-up, moisturises and soothes.

Pestle & Mortar Erase Balm Cleanser: Suitable for all skin types, the Erase Balm thoroughly removes make-up and grime from the skin with its non-greasy formula, while also nourishes and hydrates the skin.

Clarins Fresh Scrub: A refreshing cream scrub with natural cellulose beads suitable for all skin types that leaves skin exfoliated, fresh and radiant.

Dr Hauschka Clarifying Clay Mask: Deeply cleanses, invigorates and clarifies all skin conditions and effectively helps minimise blemishes and enlarged pores. This deep cleansing optimally prepares the skin for a treatment mask.

Face Masks

A great way to care for your specific skin care concerns – whether hydration, recovery, anti-aging, brightening or correcting.

Vichy Mineral 89 Fortifying Recovery Mask: A 10-minute tissue mask enriched with 89% Vichy Mineralizing Water and natural origin Hyaluronic Acid for instant skin recovery and up to 24 hours hydration. It revitalises and re-plumps skin with moisture, reinforcing your skin’s natural barrier function to help protect against external aggressors.

Clarins Super Restorative Instant Lift Serum-Mask Individual Sachet: Anti-ageing face mask made of stretch fabric from plant fibres suitable for all skin types. This skin-tightening gel-serum delivers an immediate lifting and plumping effect for the face and neck.

Seoulista Instant Facial Range: Seoulista’s facial range includes Super Hydration (coconut mask infused with hyaluronic acid), Charcoal detox cleansing mask, brightening mask infused with vitamin C & AHA’s and Clam and Correct mask to reduce redness, skin irritation and blemishes.

Lancome Energie De Vie Nuit: A new mask that plumps up your skin with moisture, leaving it looking hydrated, fresher and visibly smoother. You can use a small amount as a night cream or cover your skin in a generous amount for 10 minutes before removing gently with a tissue.

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Face Mask Range: A collection of hydrating face masks to help renew skin. There are masks to suit your specific skincare concerns, including Hydro Boost mask (hydrating), Radiance Boost mask (brightening) and Deep Clean mask (purifying).

Moisturisers

It’s important to lock in hydration with a moisturiser, especially one that are rich in ceramides. We recommend:

CerVe Moisturising Lotion: Lightweight, non-greasy formula helps to protect the skin’s natural barrier with three essential ceramides and MVE technology to provide daily instant and long-lasting hydration. Hyaluronic Acid also helps to retain the skin’s moisture.

La Roche-Posay Effaclar H Moisturiser: Multi-compensating soothing moisturiser with minimal ingredients and fragrance, so it is suitable for the most sensitive skin. It also provides skin with the lipids it lacks to reconstitute the protective hydrolipidic film.

Lancome Renergie Multi-lift Ultra: A firming cream that helps target a spectrum of signs of aging. The formula is enriched with linseed extract and leaves skin feeling firmer and reduces the appearance of wrinkles.

Foot Treatments

With summer upon us, it’s important to care for our feet and get them in tip top shape.

Epsom Salt Bath: Soak your feet in warm water with Epsom salts to soften and refresh your feet. We recommend Ultrapure Epsom Salts. For best results, fill your bathtub or a basin with warm water until it’s deep enough to cover your feet and sprinkle 1-2 handfuls of Epsom Salts into the water and gently mix. Soak for 15 -20 minutes. After you can gently smooth away dead skin cells with a pumice stone, foot scrub or foot file to leave your feet soft and renewed.

Seoulista Rosy Toes Instant Pedicure: Made from natural ingredients, this double-layer foot mask is infused with rose oil, aloe vera and beeswax to soften and nourish your feet. This anti-ageing treatment provides much-needed TLC for your precious feet.

Hair Masks

Treat yourself from the top of your head down to your toes.

Loreal Elvive Heat Mask Dream Lengths: For long, damaged hair, a two-step self-heating hair treatment.

Step 1: Apply the balm enriched with vegetal protein & castor oil, to the hair to leave it feeling immediately nourished. Step 2: Place hair in the tissue cap infused with a self-heating lotion and gently massage. After 10 minutes, remove cap and since hair thoroughly.

Hand Treatments

With the repeated hand washing and sanitising, our hands could use some TLC as well.

Clarins Hand & Nail Treatment: An emollient-rich moisturiser that softens, protects, hydrates hands while also strengthening nails. The moisturiser forms an invisible protective “glove” that shields hands from the elements, keeping skin smooth and silky and minimising signs of ageing. Suitable for all skin types and can be used throughout the day.

Seoulista Rosy Hands: This double-layer hand mask is infused with Bulgarian rose complex to treat and nourish your skin, nails and cuticles.

La Roche-Posay Cicaplast Baume for Hands: For overworked, damaged hands, Cicaplast Baume is a barrier cream that leaves an invisible protective layer for the hands. It’s suitable for sensitive skin leaving out parabens, perfume and fragrances.

Aveeno Daily Moisturising Hand Cream: A fast absorbing moisturiser that can last for 24 hours. It helps protect and nourish normal to dry hands even through hand washing.

O’Keeffe’s Working Hands: Made for extremely dry, cracked hands, this moisturiser heals, relieves, and repairs skin. It instantly boosts moisture levels, creates a protective layer and helps prevent moisture loss.

Sleep Pillow Sprays

Finish off a pampering evening with a relaxing bed spray to ease yourself to a great night’s sleep.

Lucy Wolfe Sleep Spray & Rub: Each product contains a natural blend of essential oils and has been developed to leave your skin feeling smooth, refreshed and smelling great together with better sleep in mind - the combination of scents in a spray, for your body and bedding, together with a relaxing rub lotion. They can be used together or separately as part of your bedtime routine. Suitable for adults and children.

This Works Pillow Spray: An award-winning natural, aromatherapeutic superblend of lavender, vetivert and camomile calm both mind and body, will help sooth you to sleep faster and wake up feeling more refreshed. Use at bedtime to help reduce sleep anxiety and improve sleep quality.
