This pandemic has increased my stress levels and left me bored in the house. Coronavirus updates consume everything I read and even the TikTok videos I watch! But what I have found is that this is the perfect time to take care of myself with a spa day at home.
It is essential that during this distressing period, we give ourselves a lot of love, and that should include taking care of our skin. With the help of model turned entrepreneur Africa Miranda and her Beauty By Africa Miranda line, you can indulge in a spa day at home that will take your mind off of what’s currently going on in the world... if only for an hour.
Beauty By Africa Miranda is one of a kind; each product is inspired by a global destination that is very special to Africa and features unique ingredients from each location such as cupuacu butter, ylang ylang, passion flower extract and elemi oil that will nourish, soothe and hydrate the skin.
Watch above as Africa walks us through a step-by-step guide to create the perfect spa day at home using just three products. Then, read below for more details!
Our first stop on this divine at-home spa day journey is Brazil; here we get to indulge in Beauty By Africa Miranda’s facial elixir.
“The facial elixir has Brazilian maracuja oil, cupuacu butter. I called this ‘Brazil in a bottle’,” says Africa.
When I used this on my skin, I felt like I was in another world, and it smelled amazing. It gave me a nice glow and felt very refreshing.
Africa explains, “We can put on makeup, we can do all this stuff, but the foundation of everything is going to be great skin, great texture.”
Now we are moving on to France. Oh la la! Beauty By Africa Miranda’s Luminous Body Mist was inspired by a press trip to France, where she learned more about dry oil and was intrigued.
Africa explains: “They blend the oils very thin so it sprays out as a mist.. you can use it as a fragrance or when you’re right out of the shower and your skin is damped. You rub it in, and again I’m all about that glow, so you get that glow.”
My friends we have landed on the beautiful Dutch Caribbean island of Curaçao. Africa ventured there when she hosted a pilot for a travel show and fell in love. Inspired by her time in the tropical location, her Hydra Essence Complexion mist came to life. “Something about Curaçao was just very refreshing,” says Africa.
The Hydra Essence Complexion mist has “aloe vera water, coconut water, green tea extract to help tighten your pores,” she explains. “You do a mist of this and it’s life.”
Africa recommends using it “in the morning as a toner or in between your skincare steps to keep your skin moist.”
Africa’s ultimate must-have? The Facial Elixir. As she says, “if you can’t do anything else, this is going to do the heavy lifting for you.” The multipurpose product works as a moisturizer, makeup remover and an overnight lip treatment.
It is time for you to take care of yourself and enjoy a spa day at home with products that will mentally transport you to destinations you wish you were during this quarantine. Bon voyage!
