The first Monday of September! A day dedicated to all of our folks who work hard and smart and make a living out of it. Labor Day has a great significance across the world, and the U.S. is no exception. Throughout the states, the holiday is celebrated to its fullest with parades, picnics and other festivities. And when it comes to that, the beauty/fashion industry doesn’t hold back as well. Many of the retailers announce their Labor Day sales and deals to make shopping easier and cheaper. But you! How do you celebrate the holiday? Do you prefer a get-together with your family? Or a BBQ dinner with your friends? Or is it just a cozy evening with you falling asleep on your couch? Labor Day is for you; make the most out of it as a break from your everyday hassle. Spend it on yourself. Below, we have come up with different ways in which you can treat yourself this Labor Day. So, get ready to glow-up and spoil (read: care for) yourself this holiday!
Start your holiday with a physical gow-up including skincare + haircare. Get your best outfit out for the day. Exfoliate your skin, apply skincare masks, serums and oils, massage your face, scrub your lips, apply eye and lip masks. Let your skin feel fresh and lovely again. Once you’re done with the skincare, it’s time for some haircare.
Get Started With Pre-Shampoo Treatment
Pre-shampoo treatment is the first step in proper hair maintenance. Since your hair has been neglected for a very long time, it now deserves an hour or two of attention. Thus, moisturizing your hair before shampooing should be the first step in your hair treatment. Your ideal options are oils and pre-shampoo treatments, such as deep conditioners. Deep conditioners and oils can help control frizz and flyaways while also nourishing your hair from the inside out, protecting the hair shaft and boosting healthy hair rejuvenation. Pre-shampoo treatments like deep conditioners are primarily based on butters, balms, and creams, which are known to have hydrating benefits. Oils, on the other hand, contain natural nutrients like vitamins and fatty acids, which are beneficial in maintaining your hair's health. To begin with, warm up the oil a little, then apply it from the roots all the way to the ends. With your fingertips, softly massage your hair. This promotes hair growth and relieves mental stress.
If, however, you want to use a deep conditioner insead, the application process will be different. Start applying the product to your hair and gently spread it throughout. If you're looking for multiplied deep conditioning, you can add oil to the deep conditioner. This will give your hair a super hydration boost and keep it aptly nourished. If you plan on keeping it on overnight, make sure to cover your hair with a cap.
Don’t Forget The Aftercare
The hair care doesn’t end with shampoo and conditioner. Aftercare is as important as the basics to keep your hair nourished throughout. Aftercare products mainly include leave-in conditioners, serums and hair stylers consisting of sprays, oils, and creams that hydrate and nourish your hair, keeping it silky and radiant all day.
And you’re done with the hair care. Put on your outfit, style your hair as you want and voila! You’re ready for the day.
Now that you’re all ready, it’s time to go out there and treat yourself with something even nicer. Below are a few amazing ways to treat yourself:
Attend A Labor’s Day March
There are many local marches and parades celebrating the efforts of workers, so why not attend one? Gang up with your friends (or not!) and join a parade. March with the band, celebrate the holiday, take your enthusiasm up to match the level of the march, and enjoy the day to its fullest.
Plan A Picnic With Your FnF
What better day to catch up with your friends and family? Use the holiday to make plans with your loved ones and go on a picnic with them. It doesn’t have to be an extravaganza; any little outdoor activity would work.
Throw A Labor Day Party
…Or you could always host a Labor Day party if going out isn’t really your gig. Invite your fnf to come over, plan a dinner, quizzes, and games, pick an upbeat playlist, watch a movie; there’s so much to do with the right company.
Take Yourself Out For Dinner
If you’re not a people person, why going through all the trouble? Just get yourself a reservation at a fine place, and take yourself out on a date. Pick your favorite cuisine, and top it off with the dessert. You might as well buy you something too on your way back. A few good ideas include an interesting book, a new dress, a makeup palette, a tiny plant, scented candles, or anything that makes you feel good about yourself.
If it’s a day just for you, you should spend it as you want, right? So get yourself all comfy on your couch, pick your favorite series, and order your favorite food with a glass of wine. Voila! The perfect evening right there!
