While grocery store aisles are still decked in heart-shaped boxes of chocolates, romantic greeting cards, and family packs of Sweethearts, Valentine’s Day has grown into a holiday that celebrates love in every form.
Welcome to Valentine’s Day 2.0! Consider February 14 your reminder to show yourself some love with a selfcare “rest stop.”
What is a Selfcare “Rest Stop?”
The selfcare rest stop is an emerging trend aimed at promoting relaxation and rejuvenation. The goal is to live a little slower by taking time out for restful, restorative experiences such as accepting a digital detox challenge or promoting sleep with ASMR.
How Can You Incorporate Rest Stops into Your Routine?
One of the easiest ways you can make a rest stop this Valentine’s Day is by incorporating skincare ingredients that promote better sleep.
Our Ectoin Overnight Rescue is a luxuriously rich nighttime repair cream that improves skin’s self-defense capabilities featuring hydrating, protective, restorative ingredients including:
- Ectoin – binds with water to flood the epidermis with water while protecting against stressors and strengthening the moisture barrier
- Magnesium – promotes deeper, more restful sleep to supercharge the skin’s overnight repair process
- Peptides – increase elasticity over time to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and minimize signs of sleep depravation
- Squalane – weightlessly mimics the moisture naturally found in human skin to support and replenish its moisture barrier
Your Valentine’s Day Rest Stop Routine
Light a candle, put on some soothing music, and place your devices on silent -- your evening skincare routine is presents the perfect opportunity for a rejuvenating, sleep-inducing selfcare rest stop.
Cleanse with Antioxidant Cleansing Oil, taking a moment to gently massage it all over your face and allow it to dissolve all traces of impurities and makeup. Rinse clean with warm water and a washcloth. Balance with BHA Pore-Refining Toner by applying with a cotton pad or directly onto slightly damp skin. It contains white willowbark extract to calm inflammation while clearing and refining pores. Treat with Copper Peptide Rapid Plumping Serum by massaging a dropper full of this silky, deeply hydrating peptide serum into your skin, instantly plumping it with deep hydration. Moisturize with Ectoin Overnight Rescue by applying a small amount to your skin as the final step in your skincare routine.
