The team at BB HQ are putting their self care routine first. These are the products they’re loving.
It’s no secret that lockdown is tough, even when you know that we’re all staying in so that we can save lives. While long brunches with girlfriends, beauty salons (*tears*) and even holidays are cancelled for the time being, there are a handful of things that aren't. Zoom trivia nights with friends, a DIY mani pedi and Gossip Girl reruns just to name a few. Here are some of the self care favourites the team at BB HQ (who are currently all in lockdown in Victoria, Australia) are loving during what seems like a never ending quarantine.
Love: At Home Facials
Self care comes in all different forms and giving yourself an at home facial while listening to the calming sounds of Harry Styles is one of our favourites. A good face mask will give your skin some serious hydration while mentally taking you to the land of zen. Follow this with a small facial massage and an application of Face Tan Water for serious glow.
Love: Epsom Salt Baths
If you’re finding solace in at home workouts as much as we are right now, your muscles will thank you for a relaxing epsom salt bath. Epsom salts help your muscles relax and loosen stiff joints you may be feeling from those bulk pilates classes or just general coronavirus-induced stress. If you’d prefer not to bathe in silence, we recommend watching our new favourite series, Big Little Fires on Amazon Prime at the same time. Two words: Reese Witherspoon.
Love: Mood Boosting Self Tan
Nothing will boost your mood quite like a tan. You’ll feel great, look great and if you close your eyes you can pretend that you’re looking so bronzed because you’re on vacay far far away from our current reality. The Bali Body Self Tanning Mousse in shade dark is perfect to achieve a more natural looking tan in isolation. It’s also available in a new bundle alongside literally everything you need to apply and remove a flawless self tan at home. Be quick though, the new Deluxe Glow bundle is limited edition only.
Love: Bulk Books
A good book can be the greatest form of escapism in lockdown. You can find our recommendations for books to read here.
Love: Lip Scrubs
With so much time spent indoors, heaters and protective masks, dry lips have become the new iso skin. We’re combating it with our own DIY lip scrub. To make the scrub, combine a small amount of the Bali Body Natural Tanning & Body Oil with a teaspoon of raw sugar. Rub the scrub into your lips for 60 seconds using your fingertips to reveal fuller, hydrated luscious lips.
The workout of 2020 for the BB HQ team is pilates. We love it so much we organised Melbourne based instructor, Ash Morris to complete a full body, mood boosting workout in our new BB Self Care Club Instagram Live Series here. Starting your day with a hit of endorphins will set you up for a productive WFH day with positive intentions. Give it a go and let us know what you think.
