Even though the battle between the enjoyment of the weekend and the anxiety at the though of another week daunting, there should be positivity linked to Sundays. This is the one day of the week where it’s really ok not to make plans, and to focus on #1 – you. This Sunday, focus on the beauty stuff you never find time for during the weeks six busy days.
1. A long bath
If you should be so lucky that you have a bathtub, use it! It really is a luxury craved by those who don’t have it, and neglected by most that do. Just like most luxuries really, but moving on. If you don’t have the opportunity to take a bath, make the most out of your shower time. Put on some relaxing music, turn of the lights and light a scented candle. Showering in candlelight really is a very relaxing experience, and it separates the Sunday shower from all other showers.
2. Use those special products
Whip out the expensive moisturizer, the luxe body scrub and take the time to fake-tan (if that’s something you do). Remember the whole body; foot cream, hand cream, serum for the face and something nice for the hair. Take your time, and relax with those products you save for the special occasions.
3. Mask time
A face mask is something most people really enjoy, when they use one. Finding those 10-30 minutes to really let it sink in and work it’s business is not always easy. On a Sunday you should make time for a mask, drink a cup of tea or read a book while you let it set in. Follow up with a gentle face massage when rinsing it off. It’s those little things.
4. Get them nails did
An at-home manicure doesn’t have to be an hour long affair. Remove old polish, file, buff and remove all nasty grime. Pick your favorite shade and take the time to let it fully dry – this is key, as most mid-week manicures often suffer from hastiness. If you feel extra fancy, remember those toenails as well!
5. Hair treatments
With hot tools, pollution and product overload, your hair takes a toll during the week. Take the Sunday to mend and care for your hair. If you feel product building up, a cleansing shampoo is a good idea (Bumble & Bumble’s Sunday Shampoo seems fitting). Give your hear that extra care, with a hair mask or a conditioning treatment. If you have time for a longer morning shower on Monday, an overnight treatment (Like the Philip Kingsley Elasticizer) will do wonders for those dry, tired strands.
