Ever imagine going to a wellness retreat for a week or so, completely secluded from the outside world? No matter how hefty it maybe on the wallet, most of us have jotted down the option on our individual bucket lists. For the moment, however, home-spa treatments seem to be the next best solution to our hale and hearty fascination. Stress relief also seems to be top priority during the lockdown and one of the best ways to 'achieve' relief, is to draw up a warm bath surrounded by scented candles, taking a dip in it for an hour or two with cocktails in hand and soothing sheet masks and body scrubs on.
Here are few light and fun ideas to try at home:
Dry Brushing: Brushing increases blood flow, stimulating collagen production on the skin. It also helps in increasing elasticity, which is great for lifting and toning. We suggest everyone to use a brush that is easy on the skin or a loofah, to avoid any sort of wear and tear
Draw up a spa bath: To make a bath more spa-like, toss in some chamomile and rosemary oils into the tub. This will help to calm and hydrate the skin. As you soak, grab any sheet mask that is available at home or make your own DIY mask, to help hydrate the face and neck.
Hand massages are ideal: To soothe hands that become dry from continuous hand washing during the day, shea butter is an excellent selection. This quick massage will seem heavenly and help add some serious self-care to your evenings.
DIY masks: Whipping up face masks in the kitchen is the easiest, especially with all the healthy living inspiration we have available today. One DIY suggestion could be: mix 2 teaspoons of water with 1 tablespoon of green tea, 1 table spoon of olive oil and 2 teaspoons of honey. Apply it evenly on skin for 20 minutes and then rinse it off properly.
Can't wait to draw up a warm bath for myself as we speak! Enjoy the hydrated results amigos.
