Post-Winter Pamper Essentials

First things first, get the bath running and add your favorite oil, salts or bubbles. Our current obsession here at THE STYLE EDIT is the Herbivore Botanicals Coconut Milk Bath Soak, which will, despite ongoing chilly temperatures, have you dreaming of summer vacations. It’s absolute heaven. Whilst it’s running, apply a repairing hair mask to nourish your strands while you soak, the Olaplex Hair Perfector No. 3 is one of the best around as it strengthens the hair from within and reduces breakages. Leave this on while you are in the bath and allow it to do its magic. Now it’s time to light a few candles (even in the day time!). The Diptyque mini candles are perfect for this – jump in and relax! Whether you have a bath or opt for a reviving shower, put that body scrub to work and slough off all the dead skin. The Herbivore Botanical Coco Rose Coconut Oil Body Polish is an all-natural, hydrating body scrub with a luxurious formula that leaves skin soft and smooth, and its pretty pink packaging will be a welcome addition to your bathroom.

Get the razor at the ready and get rid of any unwanted hair. Harry’s Razor will give you the closest shave and instead of using a messy foam, team this with a luxurious shower oil such as the Glossier Body Hero Shower Oil, which will give ‘slip’ to the razor and give you the best shave of your life. Follow this with a rich body cream like the Sol De Janerio Bum Bum Cream or if you’d like to add some color, try The Butter by Tan-Luxe – a moisturising gradual tan that doesn’t streak or smell, and gives a natural looking tan even in one application.

Now it’s time to give the face a much needed glow, so use a gentle cleanser like the Jordan Samuel Skin After Show Treatment Cleanser which feels extremely hydrating. Follow this with a mask like the Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask, which contains natural BHAs to exfoliate and refine, leaving the skin looking fresh and radiant. For a double treat, why not follow this with a hydrating mask to really quench the skin. The Fresh Rose Fresh Mask is infused with rose petals for hydration and contains cucumber and aloe to calm and soothe – it really is a must-have for the winter months. To add to the glow, give your face a massage with a jade roller and your favourite face oil. Jade rolling boosts blood circulation, reduces swelling under the eye and helps the product absorb into the skin.

The months of winter weather past can really take a toll on your hands and nails, which are often overlooked, so now is the time to give them some TLC. Start by scrubbing them with the L’Occitane Shea Butter One-Minute Hand Scrub to exfoliate, followed by a moisturising hand cream. There is nothing more chic than the Chanel Le Crème Main which has a beautiful velvety texture that gets to work instantly. Push down those cuticles and add a repairing treatment to the nails like the Nails Inc. Nail Kale, which stimulates growth, while hydrating and strengthening the nails. Finally, nourish the cuticles with an oil or balm, we love the Dior Creme Abricot, a thick balm that conditions and strengthens to leave your nails feeling well-loved.

Enjoy the pamper!
