My Pamper Routine


Something I've been learning lately is the importance of self care. One of my favorite quotes is "You gotta nourish to flourish."
I believe that to be true in every aspect! Not only on the outside but the inside as well! It's important to always take care of yourself in every way, so you can be the best version of yourself. 

I like to take one day out of the week to really pamper myself and get some "recharge time". I thought today I would share my pamper routine with ya'll and let you know what products I like to use! 


FIRST THINGS FIRST: 

The first thing I like to do to wind down from the day is a relaxing bath. I always like to use a bath bomb if I have one! If not, I just use some bubbles and drop a little bit of lavender essential oil in there to help me relax. These homemade soaps from Mountain Soap Co. have been a favorite of mine lately. I got the scents cotton candy and watermelon!





SKINCARE: 

I have struggled with acne for years now with an endless pursuit to make it disappear. It hasn't quite happened for me yet but it doesn't stop me from trying! My skin requires a little bit of extra care but this routine always keeps me feeling fresh. 

1. Remove makeup with hot wet wash cloth 
2. Cleanse face with gentle cleanser and vanity planet spin brush  
3. Exfoliate 
4. Tone 
5. Mask 
6. Dermaplane (dermaplaning removes peach fuzz and dead skin cells from your face)
7. Moisturize 



NAILS: 

I personally love to do my own nails! I have only been to the nail salon twice in my life and for some reason, I just didn't like the experience. I would rather do my own and I find it very relaxing and therapeutic! 
My current favorite polish: Sally Hansen miracle gel polish and top coat
Hand cream: Hempz Moisturizer




TEETH: 

I get a lot of questions about what I use to whiten my teeth. I use Smile Brilliant and it has worked great for me! They send you your own personalized trays that fit YOUR teeth perfectly. I put the whitening gel in the trays and leave them in for about an hour. I do this about 4 times a week until all of my whitening gel is gone. 
I have been loving my results so far! You can click here to try it out for yourself! 




TAN: 

My favorite part of pampering is tanning. Nothing makes me feel more confident than a fresh golden tan. I'm trying to cut back on outdoor tanning and tanning beds (my skin will thank me later). I use the St. Moriz dark tanning mousse. You can get it for around 13 bucks at Ulta. After I get out of the shower and my body is exfoliated and my legs are shaved, I pump the product into a tanning mitt and apply. I sleep in the tan overnight and shower it off in the morning! 
I love this stuff and have been using it for years. Everyone always think it's a real tan, which I love. I love a natural, dark tan. 





What do you do to treat yourself? I would love to hear about your pamper routine, along with some new products you think I would like!

  1. Exfoliating and using a mask are such important steps for me both in regards to skincare, but also pampering, like you said.
