February nights can be a quite dull and blah. For me there is not much going on and feelings can get a bit low. So a good relaxing night time bath can do the trick to perk me up, even if it only last for a while. That's why I have made it a habit to have a bath about 3 times a week.
There is just something so soothing to the soul when you submit your body into super hot steaming water that smells of Lavender.
Pure bliss, right?
One of the things I have rediscovered are bath salts. I used to love the feeling of poring bath salt into the water and get that prickling feeling but then I discovered bath oils and how rich they can smell and stuck with them for a while. Until I saw some new Lavender Bath Salts that Avon are doing now. It sounded just like my thing as I love Lavender so much so I had to give it a try. And gosh is this nice. The smell is just so relaxing and makes any bad day happenings go away.
From the same Avon Planet Spa Sleep Serenity Line comes a pillow spray that reminds me of the This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray that I have had my eyes on for some time.
While it doesn't smell exactly like the This Works one because of its Chamomile content, I still think its a great alternative to it. Its only a fraction of the price (£4,50 instead of £16 for the This Works one) and really does the trick into wanting to bury your head into your pillow and close your eyes.
Lavender and me are like the best friends ever and I could never get tired of smelling it.
One more thing I like to do in the evening after I come out of my bath its to put on a good deep cleansing clay mud mask. I have leaned the trick that its best to put on a clay mask like the Origins Clear Improvements Mask when your taking a hot bath or shower and your pores are open. As the mask dries on your face you can really feel how it sucks out all the dirt and gunk that can block your pores. And the Origins one has to be the best clay mask that I have tried yet. It does a brilliant job cleaning my face and doesn't leave my skin dry as some other clay mask can do.
I hope you liked my little bath time routine, I would be really interested what works for you to make your evening stress free or if you also have a little bed time routine going?
