De-Stressing Routine + Products

Hi everyone,

So, let's face it: School. Is. Stressful. There's no doubt about it. Keeping up with honors pre-calculus, doing community service, attempting to "flirt" with my crush, and balancing a social life is the definition of stress.

*I typically like to take the time to do this on a Sunday night because Fridays and Saturdays are pretty busy for me.

Here's my de-stressing, or pampering routine:

1. I draw my bath. A bath full of bubbles is perfect to detox the body. You can't forget bubbles! They're the best part!

2. While my bath is running I remove all makeup from my face. Because the bath is so warm, the makeup will seep into my pores. 

3. I love using face masks while I'm in the bath, but because my skin is so sensitive right now I stuck to just using my prescribed cleansers. This duo has been working wonders for my skin, but they can't seem to keep up with all of the excess oil that's produced right before a certain time of month.

4. Giving my hair a treatment instantly makes me start to feel relaxed. I recently ran out of my favorite deep cleansing conditioner, Ojon's Rare Deep Blend conditioner. It leaves my hair feeling super soft! To achieve the same affect, comb the conditioner through your hair and allow it to sit for awhile.

5. Shave! I think shaving can be an inconvenience, but its definitely a mega confidence booster. With smooth legs I feel invincible. I first exfoliate my legs, then I follow with a sharp blade. After the bath, I take the time to generously apply lotion.

6. After the bath, I like to pluck my eyebrows and paint my nails. Doing these little things make me feel a lot more confident in the person I'm presenting.

7. I like to keep my self-pampering/de-stressing routine to a minimum. After I finish treating my body, I like to get cozy with some warm fuzzy blankets and catch up on my favorite fall TV shows and YouTubers. I'm obsessed with Aspyn and Parker's vlogs!

And that concludes my de-stressing routine. This is perfect for Sundays after a long day of studying. Or even a mid-week vamp up. It will make you feel more relaxed and confident when taking exams.

Thanks for reading,
