I need a little routine of tiny little things i can do on a night to stop myself feeling and looking like a yeti. I'm trying to let my legs grow enough to epilate cause i find doing that i only have to tackle the job every month or so. Same with armpits. But in terms of facemasks, tan (gradual), little things i can do to help my nails grow etc. Please help 😂
ooh I like this why not try: Monday - Pedicure Tuesday - Deep conditioner on hair Wednesday - face mask and facial massage Thursday - manicure - if you don't like nailpoish, the try, file and shape, cuticle oil and push back then slathering on hand cream and massage in up to the elbows, then hardner or clear polish Friday - full body exfoliation and gradual tanner By weekend - you are looking awesome!!
I like vaseline intensive hand and nail cream - pink tube cheap as chips. I use a bottle of almond oil to rub in each night and Sally Hansen Nail harder can't remember which one but its a transparent pink colour.
Periodically I do a blitz on a Sunday - bath, de fuzz (I cannot epilate and have no patience for hair growth to wax) and a clay mask followed by a sheet mask and a big facial massage, pedicure etc etc. More to stop me eating through boredom than maintenance. I do try to keep up with it weekly/daily! By doing daily, I feel more in control than if I leave it for too long!
I feel like that takes the week off, and then during the week it's just daily maintenance. I usually redo my nails on a Sunday night, then "top them up" with one layer of colour and topcoat Monday - Thursday. I also tint my lashes/brows every third week, usually on a Saturday.
Well tonight I've dyed my hair. It was getting a bit rooty and i haven't got time for a salon visit. It's gone far too dark but as it was only a semi I'm hoping it'll lighten. Will go for a cut every Saturday after payday (providing I'm not at work) i was planning on epilating and gradual tanning tonight but i have zero energy now. I'll do that task tomorrow 😂 have ordered nailtiques 2 to start using every day and want a nice oil for my cuticles but I'm not sure which to go for. Might give raw almond oil a go. I need a nice new moisturiser so I'll be buying that tomorrow but then I'm going to use up the products i have before repurchasing anything
The nailtiques 2 is really good been using it 6 months now and my nails are best ever and it keeps nail polish on for a week if u keep topping it up as top coat Would also recommend garnier summer body as moisturiser twice a week
