Here are 5 great ways to treat yourself:
Treat Your Skin
A skincare regime doesn’t have to involve a complicated 12 step plan, even when you’re battling winter weather or baby hormones. Simple changes to your skincare can make all the difference to looking, and feeling beautiful. Not sure where to start? Luckily, No7 understands how skin changes over time and with the seasons. Boots No7 Advisors are there to understand your skin concerns, and to help you find the perfect skincare routine for your unique complexion. It only takes 15 minutes, so why not book a free ‘skin reviver plan’ appointment now?
Relax in the bath
Every now and then, it’s important to take some me-time, to avoid getting too frazzled. So run a bath, add some dead sea salts or bubble bath; and take the time to relax. You could even light a few candles and put on your favourite tunes. It doesn’t take long, and you definitely deserve it. And if you don’t have a bath, why not use that fancy shower gel you’ve been ‘saving’?
Buy some feel good make-up
You might have less time than you used to, to do your make up; but you only need 1 or 2 go-to products to give you a boost, and help you feel put together (even if it’s sometimes nice to give yourself a proper makeover for a night out or special occasion.) Why not pop into Boots to find the sort of make-up products that will put a smile on your face? You could find the best colours for your skin tone with a No7 Match Made Service consultation, brush up your skills with an Eye Perfection Class, or get a whole new look with a 30-minute Make Up Makeover. You’re sure to leave as an expert in what make-up works for you.
Do you find your mind racing about things to do, shopping lists, appointments and what you ‘should’ have said? Then it might be time to practice Mindfulness. There are some amazing apps to guide you, and it is a great habit to get into: All it takes is few minutes to sit, focus on your breathing, and let go of those everyday stresses. Even 5 minutes a day can make all the difference.
Shake it off
Feeling frazzled? Why not find your favourite cheesy pop tune, turn up the volume, and have a 2 minute dance party. Whether you do it alone, or find an equally frazzled dance partner; we promise it will lighten the load, even if it’s just for a moment. S Club 7? Beyonce? Go on … dance like nobody’s watching.
