Self Care – My Pamper Night Routine

Self care is really important to keep you mentally fit and stable as well as relax yourself after a long hard week. Finding time specifically for ones self is not easy so I make sure to plan around my self-care schedule. I plan on writing about the importance on self care soon but for now, to intise you with the idea, I thought I would write about my own pamper night.

It’s finally Wednesday night, it’s the middle of the week and my partner goes to ‘boys night’ to do a quiz at a pub with friends. I have the whole house to myself. I normally start by drawing myself a bath and put in bath salts, a bath bomb or some sort of oil to make the water extra special. I like to listen to my body and change my bathwater to suit what I think my body needs. If I can’t sleep I add lavender, if I need to wake up I add a bit of citrus which is why I love Lush bathbombs as they are made with specific purposes.

Whilst the bath is filling up I start my pamper skin care routine. I’ll start with my Skinfood Black Sugar Wash off mask and leave that on for 10 minutes. Next I’ll apply a clay mask depending on how much my skin needs a deep clean. The clay mask only needs 15 minutes and I generally slip into the bath right after I wash the clay off my face. I sometimes make the faucet run at a slow pace so I get more time for skin care, I’m not in a rush, it’s self care night after all.

Whilst Im waiting for my masks to do their work on my face, I’ll make myself a cup of tea and also get a glass of water and put that by the bathtub. I’ll light several candles and place them around the bath. Lastly, I’ll put my laptop next to the sink and choose a good movie. I like to go with something light or something that puts me in a really good mood. Having this time means I can watch whatever I want; it can be a documentary, a foreign film or a guilty pleasure.

I then tie my hair up and put a headband on so I don’t get it wet and it doesn’t fall in my face. I’ll also roll up a towel and place it where my head will be. Lastly, I slip into my bath and soak whilst watching the movie. I know I spend way too long in the bath, I always finish my movie. I just love the time I have to myself whilst in the tub.

I always feel so relaxed when I get out. Sometimes I’ll paint my toe nails if I want to give myself a bit of extra love. After my bath I’ll crawl into bed with another cup of tea, read a book and then go to sleep.



Having an evening to myself gives me something to look forward to during the week. I enjoy drinking my tea (sometimes I take in a small snack like a piece of chocolate), I love the way my skin feels after all the oils and salt has soaked in and the movie lets me escape for a few hours.

Self care is essential to feeling mentally fit and improve your self confidence and self esteem. The time also lets me connect with me and find out where I am at in life and where I want to go. If Ive had a bad week, this time gives me space to reflect and make a plan to move onto better things, or if Ive had a good week, it boosts my energy just a little bit more.

If you don’t have a regular self-care routine I encourage you to do so. I look forward to writing about self care soon. But until then, I can hear my bath waiting for me.

Happy soaking!

Much Love

Miss MonMon
