These are my essentials for having an evening of tranquility, these are my favourite things to do when I need to wind down and relax. Here are my tips…
Apply a face mask
Take off your makeup. Put on a face mask. Run a bath. When I want to relax I need to deeply cleanse my face. I can’t stand feeling unclean. I prefer this heated face mask because it feels like it’s really opening your pores and thoroughly taking away impurities.
Cleanse and moisturise
Soak in a hot bubble bath and wash the, possibly stressful, day away. Everyone feels better with soft, cleansed skin. These are some of my favourite products that I alternate between when I’m soaking in my hot bubble bath.
Watch a film
In the evenings I’m either watching Netflix or YouTube, my favourite thing to watch is Pretty Little Liars. I don’t watch films very often but sometimes it’s necessary for me to cry over a predictable romcom.
Read a book
Gone Girl is the book that I’m currently reading, I was reading Perks of Being a Wallflower but I don’t find it very interesting. I like reading because it passes time quicker and makes me tired earlier so I can get s decent amount of sleep.
Fill up a hot water bottle
This is a good idea for anyone that doesn’t own an electric blanket. How can you be comfortable if you’re shivering? In winter I need to wrap myself in layers of blankets to get comfy.
Get into bed
There’s no place I’d rather be. I’m most relaxed when I’m in bed wearing a set of fresh pyjamas or a onesie.
Make a cuppa
Tea is my usual evening drink of choice, it’s usually accompanied by some biscuits too.
Light a candle
I’m definitely a Yankee-Candle-aholic: I own way too many for my own good. I love filling my room with different combinations of scents. These little votives only cost £1.80 each. You don’t need to buy one of the huge jars to get the Yankee experience.
