- CREATE THE ATMOSPHERE
Soft lights, scented candles , essential oils : well-being is also a matter of sight and smell. Creating a pleasant environment is the first step to begin to relax, just tidy up the room where you are, arrange objects and decorations so that they are visually pleasing, diffuse fragrances to stimulate the senses even with aromatherapy. Using scented candles, such as jasmine, cinnamon, white musk or vanilla, as well as deodorizing, creates the right atmosphere. Alternatively, or in addition, essential oils, such as Tea Tree or Oil 31, can be used to purify the air with balsamic and beneficial effects .
- PURIFIES THE SKIN
To get rid of stress and tiredness we must also get rid of the waste accumulated on the skin , starting with the face . A miraculous remedy against impurities and blackheads is the black mask , the famous black mask with vegetable charcoal. The removable one with peel-off effect is the most comfortable and "fun" to use, as, once detached, the impurities remain visible on the film. For the body , on the other hand, you can use any scrub , to eliminate dead cells and smooth the skin for an immediate feeling of softness!
- REGENERATE THE FACE
After cleansing and purifying your face, your skin also needs the right hydration and protection . Applying a specific serum to the face , chosen according to one's needs, not only tones and regenerates the epidermis, but also helps to relax thanks to the very gesture of performing a delicate massage on the face. The serum is a true elixir of well-being and, used before the face cream, it enhances its effectiveness. To increase skin softness and elasticity, choose a face and eye contour cream with hyaluronic acid , plumping and energizing . The result will be a visibly brighter and more rested look.
- HYDRATE THE BODY
Finally, before concluding the wellness program, some pampering for the skin of the whole body , including the hands and feet . After a thorough cleaning or a scrub, it is always good to moisturize and nourish the skin. Let's start with the feet: applying the cream, pausing to massage the soles of the feet and ankles for a few minutes, not only immediately causes a calming effect but helps reactivate circulation. For the body, on the other hand, choose a light, rapidly absorbed cream that can soothe and smooth the skin. Finally, the hands: they have helped us throughout our journey and are, together with the face, the most exposed part of the body during the day, and for this reason they deserve a specific nutritional treatment , perhaps based on aloe vera and vitamins .
