Friday nights I have a big bubble bath and do a facemask, deforestation and a pedicure. I like the feeling of taking off the working week and going into the weekend nicely groomed. My hair gets cut every six weeks, and I make the appointment as I leave. Other than that, I wash my hair every day, and do my fingernails every couple of days, so it doesn't feel like a routine per se. I do love my Friday bath regime though!
Ravioli - another anti-sunbed nag! I'm very fair so before a holiday I have a professional spray tan. They use FakeBake which is great on pale skin - you don't look like an extra from Towie.
Also if money is tight - go to gumtree or Salonguineapig and sign up. I've had several cheap or free hair colours/highlights that way.
Judy I Love the idea of going into the weekend nicely groomed. Brilliant. Also it means your family/friends get to see groomed weekend you instead of always your work colleagues seeing polished you while those you actually love see Slob You.
Anyway routine - I use a gentle face scrub twice a week. On Fridays I apply warm coconut oil to my hair (long, thick, prone to frizz) and check my eyebrows. If I'm on my own I use a teeth whitening product. I love my Babyliss hot brush but I'm aware of hair damage so now I wash my hair twice (to get the coconut oil out - usually only lather once) then use cider vinegar after conditioner to counteract the hard water, blot dry and put my hair into a damp bun - sleep on a satin pillow, then smooth it out next day with the hot brush.
I don't bother with face masks anymore.
And every day in winter I add a few drops of almond oil to my regular moisturiser as central heating is so drying.
I wash hair Monday, Wednesday and Friday (also deep condition on Friday) Wash face with cleanser and remove eye makeup, then apply day/night serum, moisturiser/night cream and eye cream Apply face mask every couple of weeks Apply body scrub and butter during/after bathing or showering Hair is cut/tinted every 6 weeks Legs/bikini waxing and eyebrow threading every 8 weeks
I love seeing everyone's routines, I may use coconut oil on my hair tonight! And sleep with it in! Then I wash tomorrow, I washed hair yesterday morning so my Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday rule doesn't apply this week!
Great idea to sign up to salonguineapig- I'll take a look at that!
I will also remove and repaint my toes every week! Possibly Tuesday's
Can you tells DH is off Tuesday's and I finish college early
