#StarbucksAtHome + Dior HYDRA Life Home Spa Giveaway
At this time of year, it seems our schedules double and our time to do it shrinks. We’re juggling work, holiday events and family. And this can raise our stress levels. It becomes more and more important to manage stress levels. One way you can do that is plan a home spa weekend where to take some time for yourself. When I was traveling through Europe this past summer, I noticed that women in Paris really valued this approach. They will schedule in an hour for a soothing bath and mask to rejuvenate.
With this in mind, I’ve put together a Dior HYDRA Life + #StarbucksAtHom blog giveaway. It starts with a great cup of coffee.
I’ve selected Caffe Verona for its rich, deep roast that works beautifully with chocolate. (You can find Caffe Verona in select grocery stores.)
If you prefer tea, I have a package of Tazo Earl Grey tea. This is one of my favourite teas as the bergamot is particularly fresh. It is really delicious as an iced tea as well. The flavour stands up beautifully when chilled.
To pamper your, skin, I’ve selected Dior HYDRA Life Oil to Milk Makeup Removing Cleanser. This gentle cleanser applies as a silky oil and then as you massage onto skin transforms into a milky texture. Oil cleansers are hugely popular in Asia as they really do breakdown impurities and makeup very well. And no, they don’t cause breakouts or acne. The pH level of oil cleansers is closest to the pH level of skin.
In the past, I’ve been wary of exfoliating powders and scrubs. I believe that you have to be very gentle with skin. I’ve seen some natural scrubs that are quite harsh on skin. So when I saw Dior’s Ultra Fine Exfoliating Powder, I was sure to test it carefully. I’m happy to report that the powder is so fine, it is gentle on the epidermis layer of skin. Massage it gently onto skin in upward circular motions to smooth skin and stimulate micro circulation.
And then to give you a radiant, well-rested appearance, try the HYDRA Life Glow Better Fresh Jelly Mask with apricot and citrus fruit ingredients. It will add a nice glow to skin. Soak in a warm bath while allowing the mask to work. You’ll emerge feeling and looking better.
