Your 10-Step Guide to the Perfect Self-Care Evening

Valentine’s Day has been and gone in the blink of an eye, but that’s not to say that we need to stop treating ourselves. Here at Tropic, we’re celebrating self-love this Feb. From prioritising our wellness to perfecting our hydrating skincare routine, we know that regular acts of self-care can make a big difference. It’s okay (and important!) to step out of our busy everyday routine and take some time for ourselves. Need some inspiration? Here’s an easy-to-follow guide to pamper yourself and rejuvenate your mind, body, and soul. 

Step one: Get cleansing 

Is there any better feeling than taking off the day’s face and giving your skin a clean slate for the night? Start off your pamper evening with our Smoothing Cleanser Complexion Purifier to remove any makeup, dirt, and debris on the skin. Apply two pumps to your face and neck, treating yourself to a one-minute massage to reset your mind and senses. Rinse a cloth (our Bamboo Face Cloth is super soft on the skin) in warm water and remove any excess product. Double points for a double cleanse here. ‘Why?’ we hear you ask... find out here. 

Step two: Mask up 

Now we’ve got a clean base, this is a great time to indulge in a soothing face mask to really begin to wind down the right way. Apply our Comfort Food Deep Hydration Mask to keep those blemishes at bay while also topping up the skin’s moisture. Keeping this product in the fridge makes for an extra refreshing treat on the skin, so why not enjoy the sensation whilst you prep the rest of your self-care eve? 

Step three: Scrub-a-dub-dub  

Time for body care! Exfoliate from head to toe with our dreamy Body Smooth Refreshing Polish to scrub away any dead skin cells lingering on the body. This scrub will leave you feeling invigorated, super smooth and with a gorgeous glow. 

Step four: Bring on the bubbles 

And no, we don’t mean a glass of bubbles – unless you’re really treating yourself. You didn’t think we were going to miss the opportunity for a bubble bath, did you? Create the cosiest atmosphere with our Luxury Bath Foam by pouring a couple of capfuls under warm running water. The gorgeous blend of yummy scents and soft bubbles will leave you feeling perfectly pampered. Lie back, close your eyes and soak for as long as you like. Remember, you deserve to indulge in this ‘you-time’.  

Step five: Toner time 

We don’t need margaritas for this pamper evening, just grab the Juicy Greens Exfoliating Toning Essence for a cocktail of polyhydroxy and alpha hydroxy acids to quench thirsty skin, gently exfoliate, and improve the absorption of the products you apply later on in your pamper eve. Splash a few drops into your hands and gently apply to the face for the juicy, refreshing boost your skin’s been craving. 

Step six: Did someone say serum? 

No pamper evening would be complete without a glug of hydration, so grab our Rainforest Dew Hydration Serum and apply between 3-6 drops to the face. Embrace the smell and texture of the product; watch as your skin drinks it up in no time! 

Step seven: Miracle moisturiser 

Yep, you guessed it, it’s time to moisturise. Take your pamper evening to the next level: work in our Fresh Waves Balancing Moisturiser for a truly refreshing and relaxing experience. The lightweight consistency is perfect for cooling and soothing the skin. 

Step eight: Moisturise 2.0 

Known as the crème de la crème of body creams, our Whipped Body Velvet Intensely Rich Buttermelt is a top-notch addition to any pamper night. What better opportunity than an evening of self-care to give our bods a little TLC? Work the moisturiser into your skin, targeting dry areas to feel well and truly nourished. 

Step nine: Eye want more! 

Let’s not leave out our eyecare tonight. Pop on some of our Hydrogel Eye Masks for the most refreshing boost and leave them to do their thing for 30 minutes. You can even leave these bad boys on overnight; the cooling sensation will have you drifting off before you know it. 

Step ten: R-E-L-A-X 

Arguably the best bit about a self-care evening: climbing into your most snuggly PJs and fluffy socks and choosing your favourite show to binge watch for the night. Pop the kettle on, put your feet up and allow yourself to completely switch off  

So, there you have it – the perfect way to properly pamper yourself! Taking time to reset is so important for our wellness, and a great opportunity to spruce up our skincare routine. This self-care evening works nicely for when you’re feeling a little overwhelmed and just need a bit of a break, but we love to do this routine on a Sunday night to get ourselves ready for the week ahead.
