When was the last time you gave yourself time to unwind? With our busily packed lives, we often forget that setting aside time for self-care should be a priority. And no, you don’t need to spend a fortune on going out to pamper yourself. You can do so in the comfort of your own home, with just a few accessories and tweaks to your routine. Check out our checklist for the ultimate home spa experience.
Set the mood with a scented candle
Luxurious spas evoke a relaxing feeling through the sight and smell of flickering candles, so let’s create this same experience at home. Choose a scent that relaxes you and that signals to you that the work day is over.
Hang eucalyptus on your shower head
The scent of eucalyptus is invigorating. It calms your mind while also energising your senses. Hang a branch of eucalyptus on your shower head and let the steam of the hot water release its scent. Plus, did you know that eucalyptus also has antibacterial properties? Your skin will feel extra clean after your shower.
Exfoliate with a loofah
Treat it like getting the stress off your skin. Choose the type of scrub that works best for you — a body scrub in a jar works well while a loofah or a dry brush is also good for a more thorough exfoliation — for a brighter complexion. It works like a massage for your skin, too.
