Get the Summer Glow from Home

As the summer months approach, it's a perfect time to switch up your self-care routine in preparation for days on the beach and lazy picnics in the park. Here are some of our much-loved, self-care ideas to help realign, recharge, and refresh your mind, body, and spirit to feel renewed and ready for Summer. 

Daisy Candles and Reading

Summer Scents

Creating a Summer inspired spa experience at home is easier than you might think. Transform your bathroom or bedroom into a spa-like sanctuary by lighting candles and playing a spa-themed playlist. In our Scents of Summer bundle, we feature one of Sonder's, delicately scented Daisy Candles, these are hand poured in small batches in the heart of Glasgow. Before burning, make sure to pop your daisy onto a plate, then sit back with a book and enjoy the aroma of bergamot & geranium essential oils. 

Passion Fruit Chocolate and Bath

Relaxing Soak

Pamper yourself with a warm aromatic bath and enjoy some herbal tea and dark chocolate. We think Bird & Blend's Strawberry Lemonade and Blueberry & Peach teas pair perfectly with COCO Chocolatiers, Passionfruit Dark Chocolate are the perfect pairing this Summer. Both of these delicious fruity teas feature is our Summer bundles, as well as the passionfruit chocolate. Pop a Heated Eye Mask on and zone out for a while, we love Sensory Retreat's Self-Heating Amour Eye Mask and it's light scent of roses. 

Botanical Bloom Face Mist and Nathalie Bond's Lip Balm

Summer Skincare 

Summer is a time for getting outdoors and having fun in the sun. However, exposure to the heat, humidity, and UV rays can take a toll on your skin. Making sure your skincare routine is at the top if it's game will keep your skin looking healthy and glowing right through from May - September. Protect your skin with sunscreen, moisturiser, and make sure to keep a hydrating mist to hand throughout the day. We love Botanical Bloom's Rose Facial Mist, it comes in a travel-sized bottle, so easy to keep in your bag and grab when you need a refresh. Pair this with Nathalie Bond's nourishing, all natural lip balm and you're ready for a day out in the sun.

Exfoliate with a gentle scrub and use a light serum to restore your skin's natural radiance. We also love adding a weekly facial steam into our self-care ritual. For that Summer glow we recommend Salt + Steam's Flower Child Facial Steam, it is infused with rose and orange and leaves your skin feeling radiant.
