Sunday Beauty Routine

Sunday Beauty Routine

Sunday is a great time to vamp up your beauty routine and treat your skin to some love. Throughout the week when we’re tired and working late, we can sometimes neglect our routines in favour of quicker methods so we can get to bed faster. Sunday is therefore a great day to spend some a little more time on your skincare routine to help detoxify it from the week before.

Think of your Sunday beauty routine as a chance to do an at-home facial without the facial price tag! You will be able to use these products week after week without having to go out to a salon.

Your Perfect Sunday Beauty Routine

  1. Go Deep With Double Cleansing

    If you haven’t seen our blog on the benefits of double cleansing, then make sure you have a read as it will help you to best determine the right products for your skin type.

    Giving your skin a really deep clean after a week of makeup, fatigue and product build-up will help to clear out the congestion and leave your complexion fresh and glowing.

    We love Dermalogica’s Precleanse, which works on all skin types and effectively wipes away all of the dirt and oil from your skin. Follow with the Balance Me Cleanse and Smooth Face Balm, which feels really luxurious on the skin. It is also 100% natural, making it suitable for super sensitive skin types!

  2. Exfoliate To Reveal Glowing Skin

    Exfoliation helps to remove dead skin cells and surface debris from your skin to leave your complexion glowing.

    When your pores become congested with product build-up, dirt and oil; blackheads, whiteheads and even painful blemishes can occur. Exfoliation helps to clear out these pores and rid your skin of bacteria.

    The Alpha-H Gentle Daily Exfoliant is free from synthetic ingredients, making it suitable for even the most sensitive of skin types. It gently buffs away dead skin cells and congested pores to leave your complexion glowing.

  3. Rehydrate With A Moisturising Mask

    When you need to sit with a mask of for 15 minutes, the middle of the week isn’t always the best time to do it when you’re tired and just want to get into bed.

    On Sunday’s when you have a little more time, make sure to indulge your skin with a moisturising mask to help put the hydration back into parched skin.

    We love Caudalie’s Moisturising Mask, which contains Grape Seed Oil to fight against signs of ageing, and Omega 6 to nourish the skin. Leave on for 15 minutes while you treat yourself to some chill out time.

  4. Use A Lightweight Oil and Moisturiser

    Adding in a hydrating serum or lightweight oil before your moisturiser gives your skin an extra barrier of protection to help seal in the moisture and prevent it from losing water.

    The Aurelia Probiotic Cell Repair Night Oil is super lightweight yet charged with Probiotic Technology to nourish your skin and leave it glowing and healthy. We love to layer the Aurelia Night Moisturiser on top to really hydrate our skin too! Plus, the scent is just divine!

  5. Don't Forget Your Eyes And Lips

    Don’t forget to nourish and protect the delicate skin around your eyes and lips to finish off your facial routine. The skin is super thin in these areas so needs a little extra care!

    The Själ Orbe Eye Contour Crème is supercharged with precious minerals such as Copper and Gold to reduce the appearance of dark circles, wrinkles and fine lines to leave your eyes looking refreshed and sparkling.

    Finish off by applying the Lancer Volume Enhancing Lip Serum, which conditions and treats your lips while plumping them out to reduce the appearance of lines.

I like to enhance my natural beauty rather than cover up and I am always on the lookout for great products which really work. When I am not writing about all things beauty, I like to do Yoga and I make an amazing brownie. It is all about balance!
