How To Build a Luxurious Self-Care/Beauty Routine
With all the stress and worry of this past year, it can be easy to neglect yourself and your wellbeing. That ends today! We all need to get back in touch with ourselves and establish an awesome self-care and beauty routine.
Here at UNCU London we have some tips and tricks to help get your skin looking and feeling great, whilst improving the healthiness and overall condition of your hair.
Let’s start with skin. Your skin is your largest organ and can be easy to look after, once you know what works for you.
Cleanse: This the first and most important step. Cleansing is KEY! A gentle face wash to cleanse your skin of any impurities, dirt and air pollution (especially if you live in a big city!) helps improve your skins overall condition. We’re loving Glossier’s Milk Jelly Cleanser which helps take off stubborn makeup and leaves your skin feeling pillowy soft!
Tone: A toner can be optional in your skin care routine as some toners have very harsh chemicals that can aggravate sensitive skin. To be safe, start with a calming low acidity calming toner, and then build up your tolerance once you are comfortable.
Moisturise: Once you’ve treated your skin, you need to reintroduce moisture, in order to gain back it’s elasticity and get closer to a more flawless, glass-like finish. Using a rich moisturiser keeps your skin hydrated and helps improve the strength of your skins barrier. We’re currently loving Beautifully Nourished’s Vitamin ACE Moisturiser , paired with the Pro Age Eye Cream.
HAIR & SLEEP
Silk is fantastic for your hair and skin. Incorporating silk sleep accessories into your routine will not only improve the condition of your hair and skin - it will also add a touch luxury and self-indulgence we all need!
To prepare for a smooth and easy process, always use a headband to keep those sneaky flyaways at bay. Our 100% Mulberry Silk Twist Headbands that are non-slip, fight hairline frizz and keep your hair in tip-top condition without kinks or creases.
Using a silk scrunchie can also help keep your hair up and out of your face during your beauty routine. Mulberry silk scrunchies simultaneously prevent hair breakage, kinks, split ends and frizz. We strongly recommend UNCU London Silk Scrunchies available in Skinny, Medium and Large in an array of colours that can be easily paired with any outfit. We love!
The final step in your self-care/beauty routine includes sleep. Adults between 18 and 64 need seven to nine hours of sleep per night. Adults over 65 need 7-8 hours. Sleep can be seen as the most important factor to your self-care routine as it can help drastically improve your overall health and wellbeing.
Using a silk sleep mask can help you get a good night sleep by blocking out as much light as possible. Our Mulberry Silk Eye Masks are designed with pure Mulberry silk on both sides, providing comfort throughout the night, whilst keeping your skin soft and supple.
