It’s finally the weekend! Unfortunately for most of us, those two days also mean doing the laundry, shopping for groceries, and house cleaning. If you’re lucky, you might also find time to watch the latest Netflix series or go out with friends.
While it’s good to catch up with all those things you need to do as an adult, the weekend is also the best time to sneak in some simple and quick beauty tricks that will help you look amazing. So this Sunday, pamper and beautify yourself. It will make the upcoming week easier.
Scrub Down for Younger Looking Skin
Freeing your skin from all those pollutants and toxins that clog your pores is a great way to end your weekend. Indulge in some at-home facial pampering and have glowing skin by Monday. Detoxify and cleanse your skin with a mineral-rich mud mask from your favorite beauty brand. Apply and leave it on your face and body anywhere from 5 to 10 minutes. The product’s exfoliating properties will make cell regeneration go faster and leave your skin feeling and looking refreshed.
Then before Sunday night ends, mix 2 tablespoons of manuka honey and a pinch of turmeric. Apply it to your face and neck. Leave on for 15 minutes and rinse. The mask will boost blood flow, get rid of bacteria and toxins, and lighten your skin’s dark spots.
Aside from getting a good scrub, try exercising over the weekend. Intense activities also help boost collagen production, which helps keep your skin firm and smooth.
Deep Moisturize Your Hair
Show your hair some love over the weekend to enjoy stronger and shinier locks by Monday. Start by giving yourself a scalp massage on Saturday night. While shampooing your hair, gently rake and knead your fingers over your scalp. Do this for about 30 seconds. The short massage will improve blood circulation, invigorate hair follicles, and make your hair thicker.
Follow up with an avocado hair mask treatment on Sunday. You can use store-bought restorative hair formulas with avocado oil or just make your own. Mash up one whole avocado, comb it through your hair while in the shower, and leave for 10 minutes before rinsing. The hair mask will repair follicle breakage and moisturize dull and dry hair.
Give Your Nails Some TLC
With all the hard work hands do, it’s not surprising that manicures rarely last more than a week. Unfortunately, the last thing a woman wants to do when she gets home is to fix her nails and stay up late as she waits for them to dry. It’s better to just take care of your hands and nails during the weekend.
Look for a good nail kit and give yourself a manicure. Most kits come with the essentials, like cleansing pads and a buffer. Once your nails are clean and ready, apply a base coat, nail polish, and top coat. Use a gel manicure as it can last for more than two weeks. It will save you time and you won’t have to worry with any touch-ups during the week.
Take Care of Those Peepers
The weekend is the ideal time to rest your eyes so you’ll be bright-eyed and beautiful come Monday. Invest in a good eye cream with caffeine among the main ingredients. Stash it in your fridge until you’re ready to use it. Dab the cream on the area under your eyes as soon as you get out of bed this weekend. The cold will constrict the blood vessels and reduce eye puffiness. Meanwhile, the caffeine will detoxify the skin under the eyes.
Remember that weekends are for pampering. Do these simple Sunday beauty tricks and face the coming week with confidence.
