With all the wonderfulness Christmas brings there are also undeniable stresses and strains one being the time you actually have to relax over the Christmas period. There is always so much to do before Christmas from food shopping and preparation to Christmas present shopping. Therefore, you should plan out a relaxing few minutes to pamper yourself even if you do have to wait until Boxing Day. In fact, if you add your pampering luxuries to the Christmas List, then post Christmas is the best time to plan your relaxation! Top of your pampering list should be a relaxing soak with luxurious bubble bath. I like the look of Molton Brown’s Rosa Absolute which is a bold, sexy interpretation of Italian rose and available from Boots.
I have to say I don’t like many scented candles on the market as I think they are more of kin to air freshener than the beautiful scent of flowers. However, True Candles are stunningly gorgeous not to mention elegant to look at. The True Grace classic candle in cranborne rose would compliment your Molton Brown bubbles and make for a some luxurious moments to yourself.
Following on from your relaxing bath, give your skin a moisturise and renew with ClarinsRenew-Plus Body from Boots. Whilst expensive it a quickly absorbed anti ageing moisturiser that will mean you can slip quickly into your clothes after getting out of the bath.
Alternatively, you can’t go wrong with a moisturiser in your favourite perfume or a new perfume you have yet to won. My personal favourite is Opium from Yve Saint Laurent which is available in the most luxurious of body creams. Whilst this perfume is a gentle nod back to the 70’s, it is one perfume I always return to. Expensive but at least you or the person buying it for you will get some much needed Boots points for the new year!
