Whether it’s sharing your popcorn while you’re watching your favourite shows or creating couple costumes for Halloween, one of the greatest joys of relationships is doing things together. But if your Netflix routine is getting a little old and you’re looking for new things to try as a couple, may we suggest skincare. Think about it: you can mask with your morning coffee, indulge in some cleansing scrubs and massage oils on lazy weekends, and wind down in the evenings with a relaxing, shared night-time routine.
Ahead, we’ve listed eight great ideas that will help you plan the perfect skincare ritual for you and your partner. After all, winter is right around the corner and there’s no better time to indulge in some extra care and snuggles.
6. Better Than Mani-Pedis
Yes, going to your favourite salons for some couples’ mani-pedi time is fun. But if you’re looking for a cosier setting, what can be better than your own home? Plus, there are some super fun products available that allow you to spend some quality time with SO while your hands and feet get some much-needed care. We’re in love with nourishing masks and peels that promise to remove all dead skin, cracks, rough or hard calluses and leave you with baby soft hands and feet.
A complete hand and foot care set will include a cleansing scrub, peels and masks to hydrate, and nourishing cream. You can try BodyHerbals Foot Scrub, The Face Shop Smile Foot Peeling Mask, Innisfree Special Care Mask - Hand, Pilgrim Vitamin C Hand and Nail Cream with Shea & Cocoa Butter
8. Sleep Tight, Dear Skin
Skincare that works when you snooze is something we truly love. A sleeping mask is great, because it takes away the need to wash it all away, or for too many hydrating products if you use one regularly. You and your partner can invest in a good sleeping mask that focuses on the revival of your skin, especially if you’re both too busy for daytime skincare rituals.
Your skin gets more thirsty during the winter months, so a deeply hydrating sleeping mask is a good pick. Top up your shared routine with more targeted masks for each of your specific concerns, like anti-ageing and under-eye care, if need be.
