How to Schedule a Selfcare “Rest Stop” this Valentine’s Day

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.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Moisturize with Ectoin Overnight Rescue by applying a small amount to your skin as the final step in your skincare routine.
  5. Enjoy a deep and restful sleep!
