Let’s face it – life gets busy. Schedules fill up quickly and it seems like everyone is going in a million different directions. But how often do we all really take time to slow down a bit? Especially in this social media age, I admit, it is hard to take a minute and dare I say…relax and take a break from it all?! Today I want to share with you easy ways to slow down, treat yourself, and have an at-home spa night with AVEENO® products from Walmart! Invite your friends over or enjoy some alone time – either way, I hope these simple steps will give you some R&R inspiration!
First, take some time to prepare your area and get things set up. Declutter your living area and/or bathroom for the ultimate calming space! Light some candles and turn on your favorite music playlist. Also, grab your drink of choice whether it be coffee, tea, or lemon water! Creating the perfect ambiance sets the mood for the night!
In the evenings, the first thing I can’t wait to do is wash my face. Washing my face is one of the most refreshing feelings! Start with a makeup removing wipe and follow up with a cleanser. This doesn’t have to be a super long process, but just removing makeup, dirt, and excess oils is the key to feeling fresh!
I prefer showering at night because in the morning I always feel rushed as it is. Washing my super long hair is a TASK and takes time! Speaking of hair, what’s your go-to shampoo?
I have used the AVEENO PURE RENEWAL® Shampoo and Conditioner for years. I actually found out about it in an article online and have loved it ever since. What I personally love about it is that it’s safe for color treated hair and has a sulfate-free formula, leaving hair looking healthy and shiny. Also, the conditioner doesn’t weigh down your hair but softens and moisturizes instead. A new product to me from AVEENO®, though, is the AVEENO® POSITIVELY SMOOTH® Shave Gel. It contains soy extract, oat, aloe, vitamins E, and skin conditioners giving you ultra soft skin! And bonus, the specially formulated gel helps you shave less often. Clean hair – check! Smooth skin – check!
Follow up your shower with a face mask! The steam from your shower opens up your pores so this is an optimal time for a good face mask. There are so many different kinds of face masks designed for different skin types. Some of these include clay masks, peel masks and gel masks. Find one specific to your skin needs! Leave it on for the allotted amount of time and finish with a face moisturizer to rehydrate the skin!
Finish off the night with something extra special like a DIY manicure. Although all the fancy tools aren’t necessary, you can always pick up an affordable manicure kit at the store or stick to the basics. Start by clipping, buffing, and filing your nails. Make sure to also exfoliate and moisturize your hands. Apply a base coat, several coats of your color of choice, and finish with a top coat!
Not only are these steps simple, but in the case that you do need any items or supplies, everything is easily accessible at places like Walmart. Again, I would highly recommend checking out the AVEENO® shampoo and conditioner that I have used for years, as well as the new shave gel! Since I’m the deal-loving queen, here’s an awesome coupon for you to take advantage of!
I hope these ideas will inspire you to relax a bit and create a little spa night for yourself! Thanks for stopping by today! xo.
