Decided to stay indoors this bank holiday weekend? That's cool because we have some great tips on how to make your weekend fun, sexy and playful. Did you know that since 2008 there has been an increase in the purchase of luxury lingerie and loungewear?. You would think the opposite is true, right? But women are now going out less, spending more time indoors and spending their money on quality garments that will last. Lingerie and loungewear are now being viewed as an investment piece like a a Valentino dress or a pair of Gucci shoes. The lingerie we produce at Olyinka is not designed for your day to day, but perfectly designed for those special occasions when you would like to cozy indoors and play dressup. It is designed to make you feel glamorous, playful and sexy. So with this in mind we have put together some recommendations on how to make your bank holiday weekend a luxurious affair.
OUR 5 PAMPERING TIPS
Tip 1: Set time aside to Pamper
In the busyness of life we often tend to neglect ourselves, but it is so important to set time aside to pamper, preen and relax and I know what you're thinking "when do i have time to do this?" Well...this bank holiday weekend! Or alternatively, You could utilise your bath and shower time, just lock the door, put up a "do not disturb sign" so there are no interruptions and voila - "you" time!
Tip 2: Treat yourself to Bath or shower products
Ladies, reward yourself for all your hard work, because we know that you work hard and normally put others first so we suggest treating yourself to some gorgeous bath products. This will also help create the mood for your pampering session. See our recommendations below.
Tip 3: Exfoliate
An extension of tip 2 but an important part of your pampering sesh. Exfoliation is a cruicial part of your routine as it removes dead skin to reveal brand new fresh skin which is what you want to achieve - smooth, glowing skin. So ladies focus on those troublesome areas like elbows, knees and feet and your body will be feeling brand new.
Tip 4: Moisturise
This is the fun part of your routine, once you've emerged from your bath or shower apply a good body butter to your skin and to keep your skin super soft we advise not to towel dry yourself fully, just leave a little water and then apply the body butter to your damp skin. The water combined with the butter will absorb and seal into your skin keeping your body soft and supple for hours.
Tip 5: Apply fragrance
Cherry on top - To complete your routine, apply your favourite perfume so your body is not only soft, smooth and glowing but smells great also. Experts say the optimum areas you should apply fragrance for longevity is behind the ears, on your collarbone, hands, inside your elbows, behind your knees and ankles. Once your done, put you can now put on your favourite lingerie. We reccommend Olyinka - of course!
