Day 1867 - Me Monday

Monday is ME day

Fresh faced with treated hair after spending ten minutes on Me Monday
I often make a decision to block out my Monday morning.  Often it's because I've been on "duty" all weekend and so Monday is my chance to do a few things at home while the house is available (and quiet).  On Monday's I usually spend time cleaning the bathrooms and will often do the groceries, but I also spend time on ME.  Things of a beauty nature.

It's a Me Monday. 

It's the day I'll make my nail appointment.

It might be the day I dye my hair or do my eyebrows.

It's also the day I actually do some work on my skin.

I don't know about you, but I'm often a bit time poor of a morning when getting made-up and ready for being seen in public.  I don't give myself time for the whole cleansing, toning, moisturising thing.  I just slap a few products on, apply my make-up, style my hair and then walk out the door.

So on Monday's I try and make up for that by creating a space for ME. A space to take a bit more care.

It really is only ten minutes if the truth be known.

It's usually after the kids have gone to school.

Right before I clean the bathrooms.

Tip: Pop all those extra beauty products in a nice box or basket that you keep under the bathroom sink.
It's a great way to store them all and easy to pull out at the times you're ready to use them. 
I line up my products and I take the time to use them one at a time to give my skin and hair some care.

I try different things on different weeks.  It's usually made up of Olay products (because you all know it's my favourite go to skin care brand).

Today my Me Monday skin and hair care ritual consisted of:

  • Olay Regenerist Thermal Skin Polisher for a mini-peel
  • Olay anti-ageing eye cream
  • Olay Regenerist Luminous tone perfecting treatment
  • Olay Regenerist Luminous tone perfecting cream moisturiser
  • Olay Regenerist Complexion Corrector (with SPF 15)
  • Pantene BB Creme for Hair
  • Clairol Herbal Essences smooth lovin' none-of-your-frizziness serum
There will be no make up today

No blow drying, straightening or hot rolling my hair.

It's a good old fashioned plain-faced Me Monday. 

This Monday morning thing isn't always available.  Life, work and business can all take over. But today it's working.  

Today is Me Monday. 

Even if only for ten minutes ...
