Self-care routine at home – Small luxury pleasures. I have partnered with the mobile shopping app Preferr (which helps you to shop online at the lowest price) and Beverly Center to share my favorite products of my self-care routine. 

I stay at home during the COVID-19 pandemic to flatten the curve. During this (self-imposed) quarantine period, I focus on well-being tasks and small luxury pleasures to elevate my routine and feel great and relax at home. Here below, my favorite products and activities I have done over the past weeks.


#OMatHome: Online workout routine

Alo Yoga Mat and Bottle

I am a huge fan of Alo Yoga’s activewear clothes. I tried Alo Moves (Alo Yoga’s online workout platform) out of curiosity, and since then, these classes are part of my daily self-care routine. You can enjoy many types of fitness classes from yoga, cardio, pilates, barre, meditation, etc. I love the fact that I can choose the duration, level, and intensity. I also made a lot of progress in yoga thanks to its yoga walkthrough classes (journey to handstand, split, etc.). I take these virtual classes every day once or twice a day.


Growing my nails

As I am doing fewer activities than usual, I decided to take time to strengthen and grow my nails. I am cautious about the beauty products I used, and I will only buy non-toxic nail polish. I love Cote grow garlic nail polish and Oribe hand scrub to take care of my nails.


Self-care routine: Growing my hair

I can’t go to the hairstylist during this period, plus I decided to take the time to grow my hair. I have thin hair, so hydration is essential to make them grow and look healthy. I love the latest product of Oribe: All Over Oil. I put it all over my body, and I saturate my hair with this oil before going to bed. It will deeply nourish my hair and avoid split ends.


I skip hot air tools during this stay-home period. Instead, I use my natural bristle brush from Mason Pearson to set my hairstyle.

Luxury hand made massage

Hand sanitizer gel and increased handwashings continuously dry out my hands. I do a daily hand massage before going to bed with my favorite hand cream to soften, moisturize, and brighten them.


Breathing some nice hair

I use on repeat my oil diffuser to create a nice ambiance at home. I love to use lavender essential oils or lemongrass essential oils to feel in peace.


Face gym

I received the Nu Face trinity device some months ago. I love to use it three times a week to tone my face. I use it in the morning as it wakes up my facial muscles, and I can see the results throughout the day. It takes less than 10 minutes to do a treatment. It uses a gentle micro-current that will tone the skin.

Finding your face cream

Augustinus Bader Cream, Gucci Lipstick

I heard so many good reviews of Augustinus Bader cream. I tried it during the quarantine. This cream does it all. You don’t need a serum or any other products. My skincare routine is very minimal since I have tried this cream. 

Sorting and wearing my favorite jewels

Wearing my favorite accessories is also a great help to brighten my mood. As I don’t wear my shoes or my bags at home (which is actually what I love the most about dressing up), I enjoy wearing my jewels much more!

Alo is one of my very favorite brands for workout clothes. I didn’t realize Alo had workout classes, I can’t wait to try. I’ve been running outside and using the Tone it Up app for workout classes, but I am interested in switching it up and trying something new.

Treating yourself to luxurious self-care is such a lovely experience, isn’t it? I’ve been practicing intentional self-care for years, but I’ve found myself hoping for more peaceful evenings on a regular basis lately. I’ve been doing essential oil baths, meditation and yoga each night, lots of face and hair masks, and of course regularly playing with new cosmetics! It’s wonderful to treat yourself.

Self love is so important and I portray this feeling by taking care of my skin and body. I use Augustinus Bader cream for my skin care and for my fitness I do exercise. I used to do Leslie’s brisk walk but my friend recommended Alo online classes. I switched to these classes a month ago and I have seen a drastic change in my body in just a month. I am loving it, it is so relaxing.
