Here at The Hut, we think that the imminent return of The X-Factor is a good enough excuse to snuggle up and stay in every Saturday night from now until Christmas. The last Bank Holiday of the summer is over and the darker autumnal evenings are drawing in, meaning a cosy early night in is just the right medicine to beat the post-summer blues… We’re thinking snug PJ’s, warm hot chocolate, comforting blankets (and maybe a few glasses of wine and bags of chocolate buttons, because #balance).
Follow our guide below to nail a night in on your own and indulge in some much needed ‘me-time’.
6:30 – Start the Night with a Relaxing Bath
Cold dark nights might seem like a dreary alternative to those warm summer evenings spent relaxing in a beer garden with your friends, but they actually provide the perfect excuse to treat yourself with a long, pampering soak in a luxurious hot bath.
At The Hut, we’re currently lusting after the new Elemis Elixir range of shower, bath, and body oils. Comprising of essential modern aromatic blends formulated to benefit both the body and mind, choose your favourite ambience from calm, clarity, fortitude, embrace and sleep. Our pick for your cosy night in is the ‘Calm’ elixir, which utilises scientifically formulated blends to reset the mind and restore harmony at the end of an overwhelming week in work. The blend of 15 essential oils will soothe your mind, body and soul while you bathe; for an extra hit of calm, light the Elemis Elixir Calm scented candle and submerge yourself in a tranquil oasis.
While you’re soaking away your stress in the bath, indulge in some extra decadence with the Omorovicza Deep Cleansing Face Mask. Infused with a rich helping of calcium and magnesium, this deluxe deep-cleansing treatment will draw all impurities from your skin and clear clogged pores. Apply generously to make-up free skin (avoiding contact with eyes) and enjoy your long soak in the bath before washing off 20 minutes later with a damp mitt.
