Sometimes life gets so busy that it’s hard to find time to relax. And, while it may be easier said than done, it’s important that you find some go-to ways that can help you unwind in a pinch. Whether that’s taking a luxurious bath, finding time to treat yourself to a DIY spa day, or a girls’ night in, we all need our time to recharge and refresh. So, this week, make it a point to pamper yourself and treat your mind, body, and skin to a little TLC with one or more of these relaxing and rewarding beautiful skin care tips.

1. GIVE YOURSELF AN AT-HOME FACIAL

You may not have the time to spend at a spa, but you don’t have to—you can follow this easy step-by-step guide for an at-home facial that can help encourage beautiful skin and hopefully, a more relaxed state of mind too.

Step 1: Cleanse with micellar water

It’s a must to start things off with a clean canvas, so go ahead and get completely clean using the L’Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Waterproof Cleanser for All Skin Types. Just saturate a cotton pad with the micellar water and wipe the pad across your face.

Step 2: Exfoliate with a face scrub

Use a face scrub for gentle exfoliation as the next step in your at-home facial. Try L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Purify & Unclog Face Scrub, L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Nourish & Soften Face Scrub, or L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Smooth & Glow Face Scrub

Step 3: Spray on a facial mist or essence

Get an extra boost of hydration by spritzing on a facial mist or essence with an invigorating scent to help perk up your senses.

Step 4: Give yourself a facial massage

Revive your skin with circulating movements for 10 minutes, gently working your fingers across your skin, avoiding dragging the skin downwards. Incorporate a facial oil into your massage to benefit your skin even further.

Step 5: Apply a serum

Now’s not the time for a bare bones skin care routine, so go ahead and layer a serum onto your skin next. Try the L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Triple Power™ Concentrated Serum, which is formulated with hyaluronic acid.

Step 6: Moisturize

Just like at the end of any skin care routine, you should hydrate your skin after your facial. If you’re going to bed, consider applying an overnight face mask, like L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Triple Power™ Intensive Overnight Face Mask.

2. APPLY A FACE MASK

Pamper yourself and address your skin care concerns at the same time by applying a face mask. There are many formulas available, so find one that best suits your needs, whether you want to mattify shine, brighten a dull complexion, or refine your skin’s rough texture.

Try the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Exfoliate & Refining Face Mask, L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Detox & Brighten Face Mask, L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Purify & Mattify Face Mask, L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Clear & Comfort Face Mask, or L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Clarify & Smooth Face Mask. Each of these clay face masks treats your specific skin care concerns without drying the skin. Apply an even layer to clean, dry skin, leave on for 10-15 minutes, then rinse off with lukewarm water and pat your face dry. If you have the time, try multi-masking—aka using multiple face masks at the same time.

3. USE A SUGAR LIP SCRUB

Don’t forget to pamper your lips too! Use a gentle sugar scrub to exfoliate before applying a hydrating lip conditioner.

4. COLD EYE COMPRESS

Instantly revitalizing, apply a cold eye compress (even cucumber slices will do the trick) to your eyelids after cleansing your skin. The cool compress will feel amazing on your tired skin, so just lay back and listen to music or meditate while the compress rests on your eyes. Then, once the compress is removed, apply a few dabs of a nourishing eye cream.
