These past few weeks have been extremely difficult for me between balancing my job, my relationship, kids, visiting my terminally ill father…I’ve had a lot on my plate. Life can come at you fast and if you’re not prepared it can knock you off your feet. So this Sunday I’m very happy to partake in my usual Sunday Morning Beauty Ritual. Sunday is the day of the week that I take some time to care deeply for myself. On Sundays I like to relax by meditating, reading and beautifying myself with mask, hair treatments, manicures or whatever my body is telling me that it needs at the moment.
This Sunday, I elected to give my very tired skin a mud mask and treat myself to a manicure. My product of choice this week is Borghese Fango Active Mud for the Face and Body. I have not given myself a mud mask in over two weeks so this treatment is much overdue! This mask unclogs pores, helps remove dead skin cells and detoxifies impurities which is exactly what I need right now. The Borghese mask helps to improve the appearance of the skin by brightening the complexion and exfoliating the skin so that it feels smoother and hydrated.
Now I can grab my latest copy of New York Magazine, a couple of Vitamin E capsules (for my cuticles) and a tall glass of ice water to relax for about 15 minutes while my mask dries. Now if I can only hideout from my kids for these precious 15 minutes…
What are some of your favorite beautiful ways to relax and detox?
