There’s nothing we love more than a self-care Sunday. It’s the human equivalent of pressing the reset button, leaving us feeling content, rejuvenated, and ready to tackle the brand-new week ahead. More than just a wellness industry buzzword, self-care is your opportunity to take care of your mental, emotional, and physical health.
So, grab yourself a brew, sit back, and take five to read up on six self-care rituals to incorporate into your routine this Sunday. Go on, you deserve it.
Take A Long Bath
Melt away your weekly worries with a long soak in a hot bath ft. Elemis Skin Nourishing Milk Bath. Ideal for dry skin types, the nourishing formula conditions the skin whilst you relax, leaving it hydrated, soft, and smooth.
Apply A Hair Treatment
Heat styling, colouring, and too much sun can all damage your hair over time, so treat your tresses to some TLC with Amika Soulfood Nourishing Mask. Designed to repair, hydrate, and protect dry hair, this deep treatment will fast-forward your hair goals in no time. It takes 5 – 7 minutes to work its magic – just enough time to finish the first chapter of that book you’ve been meaning to read. Bliss.
Exfoliate Your Body
New year, same you, better skin. Upcircle Beauty Coffee Body Scrub With Tangerine is the sustainable exfoliator that your self-care Sunday needs. Take some time out of your day to gently buff away dead skin cells without drying the skin for a brighter, softer finish. Bonus point: the packaging is also plastic-free and 100% recyclable, so you’re improving the planet as well as your skin. Win, win.
Do A Face Mask
Nothing says cleanse and detox like Sand & Sky’s Brilliant Skin Purifying Pink Clay Mask, and a chilled Sunday is the perfect opportunity to get your skin back on track. Leave on for ten minutes to draw out impurities and refine your pores, revealing a clearer, glowier, and fresher looking complexion. Don’t forget to follow with a Mario Badescu Facial Spray to keep your skin hydrated.
Give Yourself An At-Home Manicure
Going to the salon is fun, but doing your own nails can be a welcome opportunity to retreat, destress, and take some well needed time away from your phone. Plus, you get great nails at the end of it, which is always a bonus. Stretch it out and give your at-home manicure an upgrade with Makeup Revolution Good Vibes Cuticle Oil. Massage into the nail beds and allow to sink in, providing immediate hydration and nourishment to the skin around your nail beds.
Light A Candle
Finish your week with a dose of peace and tranquillity by lighting a calming candle. Setting the perfect ambiance for an evening of binge watching your fave Netflix show, the Sunday Of London Midnight (Somewhere) Candle is a straight up self-care Sunday essential. Combining five essential oils (lavender, rose, lemon, lime, and orange), this boujee botanical buy is the soothing scent your home needs.
