With all the festivities that happened last month, it’s important to reflect and to take a moment to step back and relax. Here, we’ve rounded up five of our favourite ways to integrate a little more self-care into our daily routine.
There’s nothing that feels more comforting than a moment of relaxation; whether it’s changing into pyjamas after a long day or sipping a hot cup of tea. It’s especially important in the new year to take a step back to focus on nourishing ourselves with some much needed self-care. From [face oils](https://www.fenwick.co.uk/beauty/skincare/serums-and-oils/oils-and-gels) to [skincare gift sets](https://www.fenwick.co.uk/beauty/skincare/skincare-gift-sets), we’ve rounded up five of our favourite beauty rituals and [wellbeing products](https://www.fenwick.co.uk/beauty/wellbeing) that help us feel nourished, refreshed and recharged.

Light a calming candle

Instantly create a tranquil atmosphere by transforming the scent of a room with a scented candle. Perfect for a wind down, Neom’s Happiness Scented Candle utilises aromatherapy to instill calmness and boost wellbeing by dispersing pure essential oils into the air, stimulating the olfactory system in the brain. Naturally blended with extracts of white neroli, mimosa and lemon, it has a burn time of 50 hours, making it ideal to use daily. Light it while taking a hot bubble bath or before bed for a moment of peace.

At-home facial

Facials are one of our favourite beauty treatments to indulge in; they leave our skin radiant, massaged and refreshed, so bring the treatment into your home with Foreo’s UFO Smartmask Treatment. This nifty little device is designed to give you a facial in 90-seconds with Hyper-Infusion technology and LED light therapy. Simply choose from a range of sheet masks and insert it into the device. Then, massage the device around your face in a rotating motion - radiant skin done in no time.

Nourish with face oils

We’re all in need of refreshing and reviving our face, especially as central heating causes our skin to dry out. Therefore, the chilly weather is the perfect time to introduce a face oil into our skincare routine. Hydrating and restorative, rich facial oils work for all skin types and can be used either as the last step of your skincare routine or as a treatment. Supercharged with a blend of lemon, rose geranium, jojoba and avocado oils, ESPA’s Replenishing Face Treatment Oil works to soothe and replenish, leaving skin soft, supple and nourished.

Massage your body

One of the best ways to unwind not just the body, but the mind too, is by massaging the body with soothing lotions. Made with shea butter, Laura Mercier’s Almond Coconut Milk Soufflé Body Crème is a deliciously scented body cream that leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth. After taking a bath or shower, comfort your body with the lotion – taking care to massage it over the legs, shoulders, back and arms.

From shower to skincare routine

The Relax Collection from Clarins combines four essential products for smooth, hydrated skin. The Fresh Scrub contains natural beads that remove dead skin cells and boost the skin's ability to retain water. While the Gentle Foaming Cleanser cleanses skin and protects against the effects of hard water. We love the SOS Hydra Mask as it contains Leaf of Life that refreshes and re-hydrates for a radiant complexion. And lastly, the Relax Bath and Shower Concentrate helps to relieve stress and and relax the body and mind.
