It’s about time that winter got a little rebranding. It’s cold, dry, dismal and gray. Everyone feels stuck in a rut or a bit blue throughout. By the time February and March roll around, we’re sick of it. Instead, let’s turn winter into Spa Season! When we all have dry, flaky skin, and are in a serious need of a pick-me-up, it’s the perfect time to treat ourselves to luxurious and hydrating bath and skincare products.
To set the scene for a spa day or night, first create a relaxing and soothing environment with your favorite candles, essential oils to diffuse, and meditation music tracks. What’s best about the products below is they can be used every day for high-end treatments during regular routines, too.
Start with a steamy bath or shower to cleanse yourself and open up your pores. Try Origins Gloomaway™ Grapefruit Body Wash and Bubble Bath to clean, soften, and moisturize your whole body. Gently exfoliate with a silky loofah or spa gloves, being careful to not scrub too hard, causing irritation. As a body wash, the texture is creamy and foamy, and as a bubble bath, it provides a luxurious aroma and leaves the skin soft. Use a pumice stone on rough and cracked feet. Apply your favorite body moisturizer immediately after.
It’s important to cleanse day and night, and it’s necessary for your face to have a clear palate to apply other spa products so they can optimally work. Erno Laszlo has amazing luxury skincare products you must try to treat any skin issue.
For a facial cleanse, try Erno Laszlo Pore Refining Detox Double Cleanse containing detoxifying oil beads. Black charcoal purifies and draws out dirt, impurities, and other environmental effects, while a fruit enzyme complex clarifies and smooths. Add additional nutrients with a kale protein blend to restore and rejuvenate on a cellular level.
A spa day or night is all about masks, so once your face is clean and detoxed, select a mask that targets your skin type and issues for extra luxurious care.
For hydration, try Perricone MD Cocoa Moisture Mask, that hydrates, smooths, and nourishes using cocoa-enriched microcapsules with a rich chocolate scent. 100% of consumers surveyed agreed their skin felt soft and smooth.
For acne, try Glam Glow Supermud Clearing Treatment to target and heal acne and prevent future breakouts. AHA and BHA acids decongest and minimize pores, evens tone and pigmentation, and minimizes scarring. Charcoal extracts toxins and clay absorbs excess oil and bacteria.
For youthful skin, try Peter Thomas Roth Rose Stem Cell Bio-Repair Gel Mask for radiant, soft skin that is repaired and supported. It uses plant biotechnology to cool, rejuvenate, and stimulate cell turnover. It also repairs damage already done, working on fine lines and wrinkles, dehydration, and sagging.
Don’t forget to moisturize! Cleansing and moisturizing are essential skincare steps, and one should never happen without the other.
Try Erno Laszlo’s Phelityl Day Lotion SPF 15 during the day for a weightless, non-greasy feel that contains UV protection, which is essential to protect from the damaging effects of the sun. It boosts the skin’s immune defense and increases oxygen uptake, plus calms inflammation and irritation.
For the night, try Erno Laszlo Phelityl Night Cream for an equally lightweight experience that seals in natural moisture over night to promote plumpness. It has a pH level almost identical to that of skin and maintains necessary fatty acid levels for proper health.
Use these products regularly for a spa-level experience for your every day regimen and out-glow the winter grays with shining, youthful, hydrated skin.
