Being an individual, like myself, who is always on the go, I try to make time to pamper myself, even if it’s just for a few hours. That time can make a big difference, so when I was asked to partner with Schick® this year, as one of their “#SchickAmbassador”, I thought it was the perfect fit! I mean, who doesn’t want silky smooth legs, right? Ladies, it’s time to #LoveYourLegs
Like most of us, who have a 9-5 job, and/or a family to take care of, it’s not easy to make the trip to a spa as often as we would like (however, I feel we need this every so often, ladies! So… treat yourself!), so I thought I would share some at home tips and tricks, plus some of Schick’s newest products that you need to try for yourself!
I start my “at-home” spa day with a relaxing shower (but nothing too long to avoid your skin from wrinkling from being in the water too long.) Start off with cleansing your skin with a gentle but moisturizing body wash like the new Aveeno® Daily Moisturizing Vanilla & Oats Yogurt body wash. The rich and creamy formula is made with Active Naturals® to help revitalize dry skin.
Once I do this, I move on to shaving with the Schick Hydro Silk® razor and use Skintimate’s new hypoallergenic moisturizing shave gel – Skintimate® Skin Therapy® Ultra Sensitive – this shave gel forms a rich lather to help you see where you’ve shaved so you never miss a spot!Next, I move on to the waterproof and adjustable Schick® Hydro Silk TrimStyle®, to address the embarrassing “area” where you have that unwanted hair! Now I know I mention both razors here, but depending on your situation (maybe you’re packing for a sunny getaway) you can take the Schick® Hydro Silk TrimStyle® with you so you have both your razor and your bikini trimmer with you.
Side note: I found the new Hydra-Boost® serum on the Schick Hydro Silk® razor left my skin smooth for about two hours after shaving.
Once I get the shaving and trimming out of the way, I move on to the relaxing part, with a hot (yet gentle) Epsom salt bath, with a few dashes of lavender essential oil for aromatherapy, the lights dimmed/off, candles lit, slow music, and of course, a glass of white wine – treat yourself to your favourite bottle because you deserve nothing but the best!
After I’m finally relaxed, I help lock in my skin’s moisture even more with Aveeno®s Daily Moisturizing Sheer Hydration lotion – It literally leaves my skin feeling silky smooth and soft to the touch!
Once my mini spa day is complete, I like to end it off with a hot glass of herbal tea, all wrapped up under a cozy blanket, watching Netflix. If you’re looking to plan a little at-home spa for yourself, visit Shopper’s Drug Mart and Pharmaprix stores to find all of the products mentioned.
