A self-care date with your favourite people is the chance to slow down, catch up, and check in on how everyone is doing. All while wrapped in a fluffy robe and decadent face mask.

Tennis champ Ash Barty shares her skin routine and her family
Aussie Tennis superstar Ash Barty is our much loved esmi Skin Minerals brand ambassador.
We chatted to Ash to get the lowdown on her skin, favourite esmi products and why pamper sessions with her mum and sisters are everything.
Tell us Ash, what are your main skin concerns?
My biggest challenge has always been dehydration and dryness, after spending many years training, travelling and playing tennis, it has been difficult to keep my skin hydrated.
How important is your skincare regime to actively treat these concerns?
My skincare regime has become a bit of a home comfort for me and is a routine I keep no matter where I am in the world. Esmi has made it easy for me to care for my skin morning and night, every day of the year.
What changes did you see in your skin once you started using esmi products?
My skin became a lot clearer, I did not have as many breakouts and after big days of practice, I was able to cleanse my skin and replenish it properly. My skin has never been so hydrated!
We’d love to know - what are your favourite esmi products and why?
My favourite esmi products would have to be the Uncomplicated Cleanser with Charcoal and also the Hyaluronic Hydrating Booster Mask. These two products are the perfect mix for me - allowing me to cleanse my skin and then give it some extra love with the hydrating booster mask.
We hear you love organising regular self-care pamper sessions with family and friends?
My sisters and my Mum love any excuse to have a pamper session!!
We try to catch up once a fortnight at least to relax, chat about the kids and enjoy each other’s company. This time at home has given me more opportunities than I would usually get to spend quality time with them which has been so nice.
It’s awesome to have you as an esmi ambasador; what do you value about your partnership with esmi Skin Minerals?
I’m extremely grateful to have the support of such a brilliant company. We are both home grown in Queensland and many of our values align.
I love being around such positive people and working with clean, natural and safe products that are able to bring smiles to faces around not just Australia, but also the world.
With Christmas just around the corner, will esmi skincare make the gift list for family and friends?
Most definitely! I always try to support Australian businesses. Many of my friends have recently tried esmi for the first time and the Mini sets are absolutely perfect for someone travelling or trying new products. Definitely a go-to for Christmas stockings.
Our tips for a fun pamper and self-care night in with your besties
Invite 2 or 3 of your loved ones
Keep your invite list in check - pamper nights work beautifully with smaller groups. Everyone can take their time at each self-care zone (more on those below!) and have the chance to chat properly with each other.
BYO robes, slippers, and hair wrap
Does anything say self-care me time like fluffy robes? Ask everyone to bring a robe, slippers, and hair wrap to create a relaxed spa vibe!
Snack platters with healthy and decadent options
Have platters on offer with a mix of different snacks. Think fruit, fresh veggie sticks and dips, and dark chocolate for healthy options and as well as a few more decadent treats like gourmet cheese, dips, and cupcakes.
A fun, refreshing bar
Want to serve alcoholic drinks? Bellinis are a perfect (and easy!) option but make sure you’ve got delicious non-alcoholic beverages on offer too. Gorgeous skin is all about hydration so mix up a few jugs of water infused with fruit - combinations of berries, citrus, melon, mint, and ginger and all tasty options. Adding a few calming herbal tea options is a nice touch too.
Choose a ‘finale’ night for your Pamper Night In
Is your girl crew fans of the Bachelor or another series?
Schedule your self-care session for the final night of the season. Watching the last episode together wrapped in robes, face masks, and sipping Bellinis is too fun!
Set up different Self-care zones
Create different areas for pampering like a mani and pedi station, face masking, hair treatment, and chill zone. You want to keep them in the same general vicinity but separating areas means everyone isn’t crowding the bathroom sink at once.
Prepare warm, beautifully scented hand towels
Nothing says spa-decadence like fresh, warm, hand towels.
Add a few drops of essential oil to a bowl of water and soak each hand towel. Squeeze the water out and roll the towels. After guests arrive, pop them in the microwave to warm up for 10 seconds and release the aroma of the essential oil. Hand them around while they’re still warm!
We love lavender essential oil to calm and citrus blends to energise.
Turn up the self-care mood
Playing music, burning gorgeously scented candles, a few vases of fresh flowers, and fairy lights will help create a luxurious atmosphere. A few simple touches are all you need.
