Luxury pampering ideas for the bank holiday weekend


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 was true, right? However, women are going out less, and spending their money on quality garments that will last and they can also wear indoors  High quality Lingerie and loungewear are now considered investment pieces, like a Valentino dress or a pair of Gucci shoes.  The lingerie we produce at Olyinka is perfectly designed for those special occasions when you would like to cozy-up indoors and play dress-up. 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. 


Tip 1: Set time aside to Pamper. In the busy-ness 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... What about this bank holiday weekend? Alternatively, use your regular bath and shower time - just lock the door, hang up a "do not disturb sign" on the door so there are no interruptions and voila - you have "you" time! 

Tip 2: Treat yourself to Bath or shower products. Ladies, reward yourself for all your hard work, because we know you work tirelessly for yourself and others - it's in our DNA, so we suggest treating  yourself from time to time to some gorgeous bath products. Buy products that will help relax your body mind soul and spirit. See our recommendations below.

Tip 3: Exfoliate. An extension of tip 2 and an essential part of your pampering sesh. Exfoliation is a crucial 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, feet and your body will feel brand new. 


Tip 4: Moisturise. Moisturising 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, but leave your body a little damp and then apply the body butter. The water combined with your moisturiser will absorb and seal into your skin, keeping your body soft and supple for hours. 

Tip 5: Apply fragrance. The cherry on top. To complete your routine, apply your favourite perfume, so your body is not only soft, smooth and glowing but smells stunning also. Experts say the key areas of your body where you should apply fragrance for longevity is behind the ears, on your collarbone, hands, inside your elbows, behind your knees and ankles. So go ahead ladies indulge and when you're done, you can now put on your favourite lingerie. We recommend Olyinka - of course!
