When you’re working full time as a parent, carer or even as a student, it can be hard to find some time to yourself to indulge in really looking after yourself the best way that you can.

We are talking about the complete works here - manicures, pedicures, face masks and large amounts of body lotion after a good exfoliation of the body. Once you get that rare night off and you literally don’t have to worry about anything but yourself, it is time to pamper yourself like there’s no tomorrow.

Manicure / Pedicure

There is just no better feeling when you have a fresh manicure and pedicure when you walk out of a beauty salon. But there’s no need to break the bank every 2 weeks and it’s easy enough to learn how to do it yourself at home.

Before you start, why not treat yourself to a warm footbath and exfoliating, with foot treatment mask to refresh your tired feet after a long hard day. Removing old nail polish can be a slight chore but the most effective way of doing this can be through nail polish remover pads. The majority of these are made of nonwoven fabric which is specifically designed to help ease the removal of even the toughest nail polish on the nails. Last but not least, always moisture you feet with foot lotions to avoid crack skin around your heels.

Exfoliation Pads

Exfoliation is they key if you’re after the smoothest skin that could rival a baby. It’s important to ensure that exfoliation is part of your pampering routine because it ensures that your skin is looking its best and rids of any dead skin cells! Exfoliation pads are specially designed to be easy to use, improve the appearance of your skin and to gently buff away at your skin. They’re also ideal if you’ve recently shaved or waxed anywhere on the body and they’ll smooth the appearance of that area. Most exfoliation pads are infused with ingredients to improve the texture and appearance of the skin including aloe and vitamin E which both help to reduce redness or irritation on the skin. And remember to use your favourite moisturizer afterwards!

Face Masks

With most of the facial masks on the market being slightly different from one another, a lot of them generally serve a beneficial purpose such as moisturizing, rejuvenating the surface of your skin or improving the texture, blemishes or colour. Depending on your mood or the condition of your skin, different facial masks suit different times and occasions. These individually packed masks make it possible to try many choices available in the market and also carry them with you when you are travelling. The nonwoven material that makes the facial masks has the added benefits of delivering softness to the skin and absorbing the concentrated ingredients without any leakage. Facial masks are easy to use whenever you want because it lets you multitask and do other things at the same time. They’re ideal if you have a special occasion coming up the next day and easy to carry around when you think you need a skin ‘pick-me-up’ any time during the day.

Hair Dye Wipes

Changing your hair colour is always a fun way to experiment what shades or tints best suit your skin tone. But going back and forth in the salon can be costly which is why most people opt for the DIY method in the comfort of their own home. The dying process can take up a lot of time as well as being a messy job but when you have nights to yourself, it’s probably the best and only time you can really transform your hair. Although some people are experts at applying hair dye without making a huge mess, even the most careful people will slip-up and get the dye on either their self, clothing or furniture. Hair dying wipes are not only easy to grab when you’ve had an unexpected dying blunder but very specially designed and effective if you act quickly. There’s nothing worse than a hair dye stain on anything so make sure these are close by.

Hair Removal Waxing Strips

Now that winter is nearly over and you haven’t shaved or waxed for a while now, you have no excuse to keep your self hairy anymore. Your pampering night must involve the removal of your body hair otherwise you’re not doing yourself any favours. Waxing is one of the most efficient ways to remove all that body hair albeit, very painful, a fresh waxing session can last you up to 4 weeks. If you can deal with the pain, nonwoven waxing strips are designed to effectively pull out each hair from root to tip in one strip. Put it this way, the quicker and better the removal of hair, the less pain you will have to encounter during the session.

Tanning Wipes

If there is anything that makes you feels good during a pampering session then it’s having a subtle glow to your skin by doing a self-tanning session the safest and healthiest way. Self-tanning wipes is one of the quickest, cleanest and safest ways to add some colour to your self without subjecting the skin to harmful UV rays. Even if you do happen to get some of the tan in a place you don’t want to (palms of the hand), the tan removal wipes available on the market are specially designed to remove any unwanted tanning solution on your self.

So if you’re planning the ultimate pampering session for your self some time soon, these are probably some of the essentials you’ll need to indulge in the best pampering session you’ve given yourself to date. You know you deserve it, so why wait?!

Wed May 7 2014
My husband thinks I'm nuts to buy baby wipes like I did today but I keep them in my purse because I get hot when I go out and they are perfect for cooling off and I always run across a mother who forgets to carry her wipes. Just last week I saw a little girl pick up a handful of sand her in Florida and was a quick dirt magnet. Nothing like an old grandma handing her a baby wipe to clean her little one with. She was a grateful momma.
