Snowed In: 5 Products To Try On Your Next Snow DayFebruary 02, 2017
Snowed in? No problem! We’ve gathered the five skin care rituals (and products) to rest and relax on your next snow day. Find out how to turn your snow day into an at-home spa day, ahead.
A snow day can be the best excuse for a little at-home spa day... a day to spoil your mind, body, and skin with extra care and attention that you don’t always have the time for in the hustle and bustle of your daily life. So, the next time it snows, break out that go-to face mask, draw yourself a nice, warm, relaxing bubble bath, turn on your favorite playlist, and revel in all things R&R… and skin care, of course! We’re sharing the five skin care rituals (and products to go with them) you need to try on your next snow day, ahead.
SOAK AWAY THE STRESS
Nothing says relaxation quite like a nice, warm bubble bath, filled with your favorite bath soak. The next time it snows, transport your mind—and your skin—to someplace warm with The Body Shop’s Spa of the World Egyptian Milk & Honey Bath soak. Enriched with the brand’s Community Trade honey and olive oil, along with milk from Egypt, this ultra-hydrating bath soak can help amp up your relaxation mode and provide your skin with nourishing hydration.
GIVE YOURSELF AN AT-HOME FACIAL
At-home facials are without a doubt, one of our favorite skin care rituals… and a snow day seems like the best time to turn our homes into a spa-like environment. So, the next time it snows, light some candles, turn on some relaxing music, and apply your favorite pore-purifying facial mask to your face, neck, and chest. We recommend trying L’Oréal Paris’ Pure-Clay Purify & Mattify Treatment Mask. Formulated with three pure clays and eucalyptus, the spa-inspired facial mask can not only address your skin concerns, its relaxing scent will allow your mind to relax and de-stress, too!
EXFOLIATE YOUR SOLES
Let’s face it: our feet are easily neglected in the winter. With that being said, use your next snow day as an opportunity to spoil your soles with some R&R. We recommend massaging The Body Shop’s Peppermint Reviving Pumice Foot Scrub onto your feet to help exfoliate and lift away the dead skin cells that may be taking up residence on your heels. Follow up with a nourishing skin oil or foot lotion to give your feet that soft, smooth, and well-nourished feeling.
NOURISH YOUR SCALP
The weather outside may be frightful, but the skin on your head doesn’t have to be. With Mizani’s new Scalp Care Calming Lotion, you can nourish and soothe your scalp—just like you would apply lotion to your body and face. Formulated with menthol, eucalyptus oil, aloe vera, and avocado oil, this calming lotion is an excellent addition to your next R&R day at home.
GIVE YOUR EYES A WAKEUP CALL
A snow day may be the perfect day to slow down your skin care routine—what we mean by that is, to focus on the care and attention you’re giving your complexion and applying products (rather than slathering them on in a hurried manner). Before applying an eye cream—such as, Kiehl’s Super Multi-Corrective Eye-Opening Serum—allow it to chill in the fridge. The cooling-effect of cold eye cream provides a soothing sensation to the delicate skin under your eyes.
