Top tips for the ideal pamper night
19th February 2018
Getting a good pamper night in every now and then is a fast way to ensure that you’re relaxed both in mind and body. A little bit of self-care can help to improve your state of mind and your productivity levels. At Gallinée we try to ensure that we’re indulging in a luxurious pamper session at least once a week. Here are our top tips for the ideal spa night – why not apply our top tips for someone else and consider treating your mum, roomie or best pal to a quiet night in?
Run a relaxing bath
Grab your favourite copy of Cosmo and jump in a warm bath for a spot of R&R. Make sure it’s not too hot – you still need to be cautious of drying out your skin. Pop on a relaxing playlist, some of your favourite scented candles and set your timer for 15 minutes to stop any prune-like drying out.
Our Gallinée Cleansing Bar is the perfect bath time accessory to get you squeaky clean while protecting your skin’s good bacteria. Massage into your skin and leave the bath looking radiant. For that extra little bit of luxury, make sure you leave your towel somewhere warm for a cosy snuggle.
A fresh dressing gown should always be waiting for you post bath but before rushing straight into it, make sure that you are moisturising your body to bring back some water content and leave your skin looking supple.
The Gallinée Body Milk deeply hydrates and nourishes the body, perfect for that luxurious feeling. The light and creamy texture literally melts, feeding your skin with a cocktail of firming bogbean and nourishing sweet almond oil, combined with a patented Triple Biotic Complex of prebiotics, probiotics and postbiotics. You’ll have never smelt or felt better.
After moisturising your body, exfoliation can be a great shout to bring a little bit of extra brightness to your facial area. While your face remains damp apply the Gallinée Face Mask & Scrub and leave on for around five minutes. Rinse off with water and pat the skin dry for an instant radiance boost. This form of gentle exfoliating stimulates microcirculation and is the perfect weekly pamper treat. Now, put on those fluffy slippers and take a seat on the couch to finish off that magazine.
Grab the nail varnish
Nothing says pamper night like a manicure, so it’s time to choose your favourite nail varnish and give those nails a makeover. Prepare your hands with our Gallinée Hand Cream which boasts a lightweight and fast-absorbing formula to soften and intensely nourish dry hands. You can even rub your feet with it, or get someone else to – if you’re lucky! Now, all that’s left to decide is which colour you’d like to adorn your nails with. We’re thinking pink!
Pop the popcorn and pop on a movie
All that relaxation is hard work, right? There’s only one thing for it – a good chick flick and some tasty snacks to restore your energy. Why not try our recipe for bananas with chocolate fudge sauce? It’s vegan and gluten-free, meaning guilt-free too! Try to stay off social media for the whole evening and put your effort into letting the mind go. You’ll feel properly restored, we promise!
