Valentines day is right around the corner, and I know it’s a day people have mixed feelings about. Regardless of your opinion , I think one thing that we don’t do enough of is self-love.
Life can get quite manic, and in today’s world it seems like everyone’s lives are busy and people are always rushing from one thing to the next. Myself included.
My weeks are packed; I work a full time job during the week and going to university on the weekends, I barely give myself time to switch off.
One of my favourite things to do to relax when I have those rare moments is to take a long bath and use my favourite products. Even the smallest things like having freshly painted nails makes the world of difference.
Lately, i’ve been enjoying using products from Korres in my routine, who formulate their products using natural ingredients.
The Japanese Rose range (shower gel and body butter) contains wild rose and achillea. Wild rose oil contains acids which have moisturising and softening properties. Additionally, it contains vitamin c which is something that I always look for in my skincare as it helps with brightening and fine lines. Additionally these products contain achillea’s which are anti-oxidants.
The AHA Exfoliating Mask contains bilberry fruit which helps to remove impurities and dead skin cells. I usually like to use this 1-2 times a week in the evening. I think like to wash my skin and use a lightweight moisturiser.
Both the lip butter and gel nail polishes contain pomegranates which contain vitamins A,C and E.
The lip butter is great for this time of year when your lips might be slightly drier, as it leaves them feeling soft at moisturised. It’s slightly tinted as well which gives the lips a nice flush of colour to them, perfect for those “no make up make up” days.
The gel nail polishes are so beautiful, and are perfect colour choices for Valentines Day. They give a shellac type finish which is long wearing, and so they give you salon finish nails for less.
So whether you’re heading for date night or having a night in to yourself. I think it’s important to remember to take some time out of your day to focus on yourself. That’s the best kind of love, right?
