The importance of self-love plus FREE Biologi skincare pamper ritual!
If there’s one thing most people have in common these days, it’s a busy life.
By the time we’ve got through the week’s non-negotiables such as work, exercise and socialising with family and friends, there’s not usually much time left to spend on ourselves.
But this is where we’re going wrong!
Regular pamper sessions not only benefit you but also everyone else around you! So if you’ve been looking for a reason to get down to the nearest day spa and show yourself some TLC, here are seven…
1)You can’t pour from an empty cup!
While we’re in the habit of wearing ‘busy’ as a badge of honour, the saying that you can’t pour from an empty cup has never been truer than in today’s hectic lifestyles.
Nurturing relationships and being a good friend, partner and parent requires energy. And if you haven’t taken the time to restore yours, how are you expected to give it to anybody else?
Failing to fill your own pamper cup can leave you burnt out with nothing to give those around you.
2) Reduces stress
You can control many things in life, but you can’t control everything. And much as we don’t want to admit it, there are always going to be stressful situations that barge through the door without being invited.
And when the stress comes, we know that a pamper session can feel low down on the list of priorities. But this is when it’s most important to take some time out to help you avoid burnout.
Even when life is going well, regular pampering helps keep you calm so you can deal with whatever life throws at you!
3) Improves relationships
It might seem counterproductive that putting you first can help relationships with others! But when you show yourself just how much you care, it makes you feel good which shines through into your personal relationships.
When you know what to do to make yourself happy and regularly go and do it, you give those around you more clarity about what they can expect from a relationship with you.
4) Increases productivity
We understand that popping out of work for a style and blow dry might seem counterproductive but hear us out!
Rewarding yourself for reaching work milestones or taking a rest and recharging when your body and mind both need it can help reduce procrastination and increase productivity in the long run.
We don’t suggest you walk away from the ‘urgent’ pile without any notice but do take that break and schedule in regular pamper sessions to help keep your body and mind energised.
5) Makes you happier
Sometimes a bit of pampering can be for no other reason than just to make you feel happy!
And who doesn’t want more of that?
6) Improves confidence
We all know those #newhairfeels can make anyone feel a million dollars!! Whether you’ve treated yourself to a cut and colour, manicure, or skin treatment, regular pampering helps you make the best of your features which can make you feel ready to take on the world!
7) Encourages others
If someone sees you regularly pampering and giving yourself the self-love you deserve, it will absolutely encourage them to do the same.
Do you need us to tell you twice?!
Your FREE Biologi skincare pamper ritual!
A pamper session can involve anything that makes you feel good about yourself and lets your mind and body know just how much they’re loved!
It can be as simple as a 15-minute express manicure session or a full-day spa package involving massage and other treatments.
But the best part about pampering is that it doesn’t have to be costly, and it can be conveniently worked around your routine.
Because we’re approaching the season of love and this is about you, we want you to enjoy this FREE skincare pamper ritual we’ve designed just for YOU!
1) Set the mood!
Trust us, you can’t make the most of your pamper session with your notifications bleeping and seeing the work inbox light up! Turn off your phone, light a candle or incense, put on some relaxing music.
Next, prepare your Biologi products and tools:
- Bc Refresh Cleanser
- Biologi Microfibre Cloth or cleansing cloth
- Bx Reveal Exfoliant
- Small bowl and exfoliant mask brush
- Br Organic Rosehip Oil and a Biologi serum of choice
2) Cleanse your skin
Apply two to three pumps of Bc Refresh Cleanser onto damp hands and lightly massage over your face, neck and décolletage.
Remove with a microfibre cloth.
Repeat if you are wearing make-up or SPF.
3) Exfoliation ritual
Using one sachet of the Bx Reveal Exfoliant, place into a small bowl, add two to three pumps of Bc Refresh Cleanser and mix to a silky consistency.
Apply to face, neck and décolletage and leave for five minutes.
While the Bx Reveal Exfoliant mask is working, try doing some deep breathing exercises to encourage fresh oxygen into your body.
Breathe in deeply through the nose, letting your belly rise, then release the breath through the mouth, gently and naturally letting go.
Remove the exfoliant with a microfibre cloth and pat dry skin.
Apply Biologi serum of choice and wait for five to ten minutes for the active ingredients to penetrate deep into the cells.
4) DIY self-massage
Facial massage helps to increase the supply of oxygen and nutrients to the skin, improves the texture and help reduce tension to promote a more glowing complexion.
- Apply three drops of Br Organic Rosehip Oil and spread lightly over your face, neck and décolletage.
- With the index finger and thumb, press together along the jawline to the bottom of the earlobe. Repeat three times.
- With the middle and ring finger, place fingers at sides of mouth and lift the side of mouth into cheek bone to lift and release tension. Repeat six times.
- With splayed fingers, use all fingers to gently lift the sides of cheeks six times. Repeat on the other cheek.
- Under the eye area, perform little half circles and repeat under the other eye. Repeat three times.
- Massage the pressure points under eyebrow and lift and over brows. Repeat three times
- Perform small circles over the forehead and out to the temples.
- With full hand, lift forehead to release tension.
- Finish with gentle circles at temples.
- Lightly massage any residue product into the skin.
- Watch your skin glow!
