The Perfect Wellbeing Routine For A Little You Time
This January, we’re focusing on our wellbeing and making the time for self-care. Wellness starts at home, and there are many steps that we can all take to help us work on our wellbeing routine.
Working on your wellbeing can be very different from person to person. Some people may like to indulge in a glass of wine and a new book, while others might find watching their favourite Netflix series a great way to find their inner peace. But as a bunch of skincare and beauty lovers, here at FTF, we always find that indulging in self-care and pamper routines is the perfect way to help us feel that inner wellness.
In today’s post, we’re sharing what our perfect wellbeing routine would look like, along with some of our favourite products to help us unwind and relax.
Set The Mood
To us, working on our wellbeing starts with setting the mood to help us relax and unwind. Our FTF team love using candles to create the perfect atmosphere – not only do they give an ambient, relaxing glow, but they also gently scent the air and allow us to escape to a state of tranquility.
Reminisce about those times spent relaxing by the shore with the Delilah Chloe Seven Seas Candle. Made with a balmy scent of rich amber and exotic coconut, the candle helps to to create a true sense of escapism, letting your mind relax and drift away.
Cleanse And Purify
Cleansing is an important step in any skincare routine. Without proper cleansing, the build-up of impurities on your skin that accumulate throughout the day can leave your pores blocked, and your skin prone to breakouts. Cleansing your skin thoroughly allows better absorption of your skincare products and helps you to reach your healthy skin goals.
We believe that your skincare routine should be a luxury experience that gives you a few mindful moments of self-care, and this nourishing, cleansing balm offers a touch of decadence to your routine.
Infused with English rose oleo extract, the balm melts into a rich cleansing oil on your skin to dissolve makeup and impurities gently.
Emulsifying to a hydrating milk, the easy-to-rinse formula helps to nourish your skins lipid barrier, leaving it feeling smooth and soft, and your complexion looking radiant.
Take A Mask Moment
We love taking time out after a busy day (or before a special event) to relax whilst we wear one of our favourite face masks. Designed to deeply deliver a concentrated formula for accelerated results, regular masking helps to boost your skincare routine and leave your complexion glowing.
This two-piece treatment mask features Perricone MD’s proprietary Liquid-Crystal-Delivery System to bring your skin a concentrated treatment that shows immediate results.
Designed to rejuvenate your skin whist reducing fine lines and wrinkles, the mask helps your skin to look healthier and more youthful.
Containing vitamin C ester, a highly stable and easily absorbable form of vitamin C, the serum mask helps to brighten, smooth, and reduce skin discolouration. Meanwhile copper tripeptide works to hydrate dry skin, whilst firming and smoothing, helping to protect against environmental aggressors.
With phospholipids, the formula helps your skin to maintain its moisture barrier and makes it easier for the potent ingredients to be absorbed. It's the perfect winter glow boost!
Nourish Your Skin
Healthy skin is hydrated skin, so moisturising is an important step in your twice daily routine. Without hydration and moisturisation, our skin looks dull and lacklustre, and signs of premature ageing are more prevalent due to the loss in plumpness and elasticity. Dry skin is also prone to irritation – from itching and flaking, to cracking and painful patches. Combat dryness and embrace healthy, more radiant-looking skin with a twice-daily moisturising routine. Even better? Turn your daily moisturiser application into a mini massage session to accelerate your wellbeing routine.
Delivering potent hydration to your skin without leaving an oily residue, this nutrient-rich formula leaves your skin feeling healthy and hydrated.
Working to deliver potent hydration whilst restoring your skin’s suppleness and elasticity, the velvety cream also works to strengthen your skin’s barrier whilst helping to protect it from free radial damage.
Thanks to the addition of Botox-like peptides, the advanced formula helps to diminish the signs of ageing, like fine lines and wrinkles, whilst the Idealift peptide complex promotes a plumper, firmer appearance.
Soak Your Troubles Away
To us, no wellbeing routine would be quite as complete without a relaxing bath. And no bath is complete without a luxurious bath oil to help us to soak the day away and restore our body and mind.
This indulgent bath oil features a blend of more than 30 floral and berry oils, along with vitamin E, to leave your skin feeling soft and smooth.
Pure vitamin E works to heal and protect your skin against free radical damage, whilst cold-pressed blueberry, cranberry, and strawberry seed oils further deliver antioxidant-rich protection. The addition of vitamins A and K, along with Omegas 3, 6, and 9 work to nourish and soothe your skin as you soak.
With scents of black pepper, iris, jasmine, rose, wild mint, and oud, your skin will be left as beautifully fragranced as it is nourished.
Hydrate Your Body
Hydrating your body as well as your complexion is important to keep your skin healthy and supple. Not to mention, spending time to apply a luxurious moisturiser is a great part of your wellbeing routine.
Lightweight and fast absorbing, this deeply nourishing oil helps to promote your skin’s health and resilience.
Infused with nourishing botanical oils like argan and olive fruit, the formula combines Augustinus Bader’s proprietary TFC8® technology – a complex of high-grade vitamins, synthesised molecules, and natural amino acids to enhance your skin’s reparative process of lost moisture.
Helping to deeply hydrate your skin, this dew-giving body oil will help your skin to look smoother and suppler, whilst being supported with antioxidant protection and defense against free radical damage.
Treat Your Tresses
For us, indulging in ‘me time’ includes taking care of our body from top to toe. So, we never forget about treating our tresses to give us that salon-fresh feeling right from the comfort of our own home. Indulging your hair in a weekly hair masque is a great way to care for your wellbeing and enjoy some you time.
Rich in vitamins, Mediterranean plant-based proteins, and antioxidants, this deeply hydrating hair mask creates a high-gloss hair finish for expensive looking hair.
Perfect for all hair types, the weightless formula is instantly absorbed without leaving build-up or weighing your hair down.
With Color Wow’s proprietary Procapill Complex, your hair follicles are stimulated, and your roots are anchored for reduced hair loss.
Care For Your Body From The Inside Out
Vitamins and minerals are needed by your body to enable it to carry out a range of normal functions. Taking a daily supplement can be helpful in giving your body a boost of the essential micronutrients it needs to help you reach your wellness goals. When you feel great on the inside, it shows on the outside.
If your goal is healthier skin, nails, and hair, then VIDA GLOW’s Natural Marine Collagen could be the perfect supplement for you. Formulated using activated collagen peptides that are easily absorbed and help to boost your body’s natural production of collagen, the beauty-boosting powder can be mixed into any food or drink. When used over time, the supplement helps to reduce the signs of skin ageing, whilst promoting thicker, healthier hair, and encouraging nail growth.
Bring Clinic Treatments To Your Home
Visiting a clinic or a spa is a perfect way to help you recharge and relax your way into your wellbeing routine, but sometimes, especially in the winter months, it's nice to be able to stay cosy at home and bring the benefits of the spa right to your own living room.
This lightweight and flexible mask delivers innovative 10-minute express anti ageing LED light therapy treatments to your skin. Bringing anti-ageing benefits like increasing your body’s production of collagen and elastin, and reducing fine lines, along with restoring your optimal cell function, the mask brings professional results right to your front door for a professional skincare treatment at home.
