For Christmas Eve I enjoy giving myself a good little pamper so I feel refreshed the next morning! I don’t often do a full on pamper session. I find that it can make me break out more because I’m applying so much stuff to my face. My skincare routine is very simple anyway because I find I’m just naturally lucky and very rarely get spots or breakout, so if this ‘pamper’ seems like not a lot to you then that’s why!
To begin with I run a bath and pop in a Lush product depending on what mood I’m in. I will relax for a while with some candles lit and either music or some Youtube playing in the background. Once I feel adequately relaxed I then wash myself down and exfoliate my face. I use the Simple Skin Care range for my skin because I find it just works amazing at such an affordable price as well. I’ve never had better skin since I switched all my skincare products to Simple. I also very highly doubt don’t think I will ever need to switch to something different.
Once I am all washed and changed I will then go on to wash my hair. Now I wash my hair over the bath, but apparently this is weird. Anyone else? I use Aussie on my hair because it had repaired and kept my hair it’s best. A year ago my hair would matte up a lot due to bleach pigments still being in my hair when I dyed it again, and it has taken so long to get my hair back to a healthy state, all thanks to Aussie!
I always leave my hair to dry naturally. I never use a hair dryer any more to stop heat damage, same reason I don’t straighten my hair anymore. Now it’s healthier I’ll probably start straightening it again, but I don’t see the point in me blow drying my hair because it doesn’t go frizzy or knotted if I don’t. While leaving my hair to dry I pop on a face mask, and I’m using the Mask Of Magnaminty at the moment as it makes my skin really soft and glowy. I usually leave this on for around 10 minutes so I use that time to clean my make up brushes so I have a clean set to use especially for Christmas Day. I use the No7 Make Up Brush Cleanser, and you can read all about how I clean my brushes here.
Now that my brushes are clean and my face is refreshed, I chill out for a bit with a Christmas film on while cosied up on the sofa. Right before I go to bed I will wipe my face with a Simple Skin Care Micellar Water wipe and apply a bit of moisturiser to let that sink in over night so my skin feels hydrated for a long day of make up on Christmas Day.
That’s it! That’s all I do on a Christmas Eve evening. Let me know what you get up to on Christmas Eve in the comments below. If you want to know any of the products mentioned I have left links at the bottom of the post.
