Self care tips for your beauty routine

Is there any better feeling than waking up well rested, full of energy and ready to take on the day? We all know what we ‘need’ to be doing to feel like this in the mornings, but unfortunately Netflix sometimes gets the better of us. #truth

You’ve probably also read many articles on ‘switching off’ at 8pm, putting your phone on aeroplane mode, turning off the wifi and all devices. Admittedly all very hard to do when there's an Instagram feed to get to the bottom of.

What if I said there was a very simple and easy ritual you could start? One that would have you feeling relaxed and more calm at night, and lead to a better sleep, and therefore a better morning?

Make yourself an herbal tea, run a warm bath add some of Soak Society’s Sleep Wellness Soak (a few tablespoons is best) and soak for 20 minutes. Easy, right? Ever gotten out of the bath and all you want to do is curl up in bed? This is because your body temperature lowers naturally at night to send you to sleep, so by warming your body and then getting out of the bath, you speed up this process - so you’ll feel sleepier, faster!

The properties of the organic lavender and chamomile essential oils in the wellness soak from soak society will calm your nervous system, so be sure to inhale deeply and relax while you’re in the tub. The magnesium salts in the soak also helps with those who suffer from restless legs syndrome, and relaxes you into a deeper sleep. 

Try this ritual once or twice a week and see how you feel in the morning, I promise you’ll love it. Use your time alone to read, think, daydream, say positive affirmations - whatever you like. There’s nothing to say you can’t also watch Netflix and scroll through Instagram while you’re soaking. It’s your me-time after all!

This blog post was written in collaboration with Natalie Thorogood, Soak Society who loves to soak and who truly believes in the power of me time and the benefits of natural ingredients of the highest quality with pure organic essential oils for beauty rituals of self-care. 

We love this brands ethos of natural and organic ingredients such as organic essential oils, magnesium salts and Bentonite Clay to promote both relaxation and detoxification. All soak society products are vegan and cruelty free so you can soak away and create that much needed downtime guilty free. 

The Sleep Wellness Soak that combines organic essential oils of lavender and chamomile to calm your busy mind, oatmeal to moisturise, and white clay to soften skin is my personal favourite. Soak right before bed to prepare you for a peaceful slumber. Trust me it works every time!
