With all the stress we have in our lives, it’s essential to treat ourselves once in a while. What better way to do that than hosting your very own girls, or boys, night in! Whether you want to enjoy this time all to yourself or invite some friends over to relax with you, these 5 ideas will have you feeling on cloud nine by the end of the night. You deserve it!
Food is a must
First things first: FOOD. You can’t enjoy a night of pampering on an empty stomach. If you want to go the easy route, order a pizza from your favorite pizza shop to enjoy. But, if you’re looking to do something a little fancier, try your hand at a charcuterie board. You can find a ton of awesome ideas on Pinterest. The main things you’ll need are cheese (typically a soft, medium, and firm type), some kind of meat (salami and prosciutto work great), and any kind of crackers or bread that you like. You can even spice it up by adding your favorite jam or dried fruits alongside. Make it even more fun by pairing your favorite wine with it!
Try out a soothing face mask
Now that the snacks are taken care of, it’s time for what we all came for…the pampering. You can never go wrong with a good face mask to relax you and do magic on the skin all at the same time. Face masks are great for refining and unclogging pores, increasing facial hydration, and evening skin tone.
Just Neem Clay Face Mask is the perfect thing to tackle anything from acne to facial dryness. Its natural antihistamine properties calm redness, while its natural antibacterial properties cleanse, repair, and restore the skin and protect it from breakouts. Find it here!
Do a photoshoot!
Once you’ve got your girls’ night in rolling, a super fun idea is to do a photoshoot with yourself or your friends. You can rock some matching PJs, or just take up-close, silly pictures with the green face masks. You can even go the extra mile by cutting up some cucumbers, or other props, to pose with.
Another fun thing to do while you finish your food and let your face mask dry is to treat yourself to a fresh coat of nail polish.
The first thing you’ll want to do is soak your hands and feet. Make sure the water is warm but not hot! If you want to add to the pampering, you can grab your favorite body polish and exfoliate all the dead skin off your hands and feet. This will make you feel like you just stepped out of the salon with baby smooth skin.
Just Neem Green Tea Body Polish is excellent for sloshing off all the dead skin cells that make your skin look anything less than perfect. This body polish infuses the fine sugar base and rich hydrating oils with the remarkable healing powers of Neem. You can find this body polish here.
After your skin is smooth and nails are soaked, trim, file, and shape your nails to your desired length and style. Once your nails are cleaned up, pick out your favorite shade of nail polish and paint on two coats and seal it all in with a shiny topcoat! You’ll look like you just spent $70 and two hours in a nail salon when you actually did it in the comfort of your own home.
Binge watch some Netflix
The final thing to top of your girl’s night is to get comfy and turn on your favorite Netflix TV show or movie. Take it the extra mile by popping some popcorn or pulling out some Ben & Jerry’s ice cream out of the freezer.
Self-care is one of the most important things to keep in mind to maintain a balanced mental and physical lifestyle. Whether your self-care be taking a few minutes out of your day to do some deep breathing or following these steps to have a great girl’s night in, remember that the stress of your busy life doesn’t control you. Treat yourself, you deserve it. Happy girls’ night in!
