Being a beauty YouTuber, I have to take really good care of my skin. It’s my canvas to show you guys what I do best and share my creations with you. So when I want to give my skin some TLC, I treat myself to a spa day! As much as I love being pampered and getting a special facial or treatment from someone else, sometimes it’s just not realistic for me. I don’t always have the time and it can get expensive. Plus, when I can use amazing products that give me the results I’m looking for, there’s no need to!
I’m going to be posting a video on my YouTube channel showing you guys how I use some awesome products by Bliss to create my own spa day at home. It’s worth the watch for a really good look at the products and how they work but I also want to explain to you the products and why I incorporate them into my home spa experience.
How amazing does it feel after a long week of work to sit on the couch and just relax with a nice mask on? I love this clay mask because it’s the refresher I need after wearing makeup all day. Your face feels cleansed of all the dirt and pigments and it helps shrink your pores. Having a mask to help with your pores is fantastic if you wear makeup everyday, because when your makeup sinks into your pores and they are poorly cleaned, that can cause those pesky little breakouts. There are some great properties in the formula that also fight signs of aging, so it can benefit anyone. Apply this just like a typical mask, and soak it up for about 7 to 10 minutes, and rinse. It’s that easy, so there’s no reason why you shouldn’t treat yourself once a week!Hot Salt Scrub
You guys probably know by now because of all my skin care videos that I exfoliate my face because of how it can repair your skin and bring it new life. Think of it as scrubbing off all of the old and dead to make room for fresh, vibrant skin. It’s really important, especially for someone like me who lives in a sunny climate, to exfoliate dry, flaky skin that can get a little dried out from the sun or lots of swimming. I love Bliss’ Hot Salt Scrub as a body exfoliant to get rid of the dead and dry skin that can come up on my arms and legs especially. The rosemary and eucalyptus help mend and heal your skin while it sits on your skin, while the algae adds free radical fighting protection. My skin feels soft and buttery afterwards, and looks well-nourished and even.
I know – waxing your own eyebrows seems a little bit scary. Waxing your own eyebrows at home is perfectly fine if you’re a beginner to clean up the tops and bottoms of those pesky little hairs. I personally like using the Poetic Face Wax Strips because each strip is infused with aloe vera to help calm down any stinging or irritation that can come along with waxing. If you have sensitive skin, this is a huge plus for you, and as an extra benefit, the strips are hypoallergenic. It’s so simple to use these too; just rub in your hands for 20 seconds, peel, apply, and rip! You don’t need to microwave these puppies and be concerned about burning yourself.
Once you’ve exfoliated with the Hot Salt Scrub, you may be feeling so good that you want to go out and grab a drink with the girls or the hubby. Spray on some of Hide & Glow Body Spray for a slight, natural tint that adds glow to your body. We all love that sun kissed look, but we don’t need to bake ourselves in order to get it anymore. The caffeine and peptides create the illusion of toned, even skin while vitamin E and maracuja oil repairs; it’s a double duty product! Exfoliating before you do this is actually best, because the dead skin is gone and your skin will hold the product more easily.
A little tip: Never use a body exfoliator on your face and vise versa; body exfoliators are too harsh for the soft skin on your face and could be irritating, and sometimes painful.
These products tackle so many common issues that we have with our skin and are so easy to use, you don’t have to be an aesthetician to master them.
