Pamper time does not just happen – unless you are a lady of leisure or particularly lazy – you have to schedule it into your week but it’s worth it and you deserve it! I reckon if everyone had a weekly pamper session there would be a lot less road rage.
Short Pamper Session 20 mins
You Will Need
Any down tempo music that you love which isn’t depressing.
Bowl of warm water with a few drops of your favourite essential oil
Products I Recommend
Tie your hair back off your face and apply face mask. Plonk your bum in the comfiest chair in your house. Place your feet in the bowl of water (this will hold you captive and stop the urge to jump up and do those little tasks you forgot about earlier). Read the least brain testing section of your magazine. Ideally the holiday section for 5 minutes. Put down magazine lean head back using the rolled pillow as a neck support and lean your head back and close your eyes. Remember a relaxing holiday you went on or make up a fantasy one. Every time your mind drifts back to reality – catch it. After 15 minutes peel off the face mask, lightly dry your feet and massage in the foot balm.

Tie hair back and melt a bath bomb in the bath. Clime into your now very pretty bath and relax there for 25 minutes. Apply mud mask and relax for 10-15 minutes. Just before you get out massage in the body scrub in circular motions – always towards your heart. Rinse off scrub and mud mask by pouring a few jugs of warm water over yourself. It feels lovely and relaxing you’re not using your (now used) bath water. Hop out and leave skin damp before smothering body in body butter/skin oil or using a moisturising bar. Wrap up in a cozy dressing gown. Sit in a comfy place and file finger and toe nails gently into shape, buff gently if needed and then apply the nail strengthening treatment. Treat feet to socks and slippers.
