Here’s a few ways you can relax and unwind during a bath, after a hectic day!
With the whole work-from-home situation going on, time for work and relaxation can get quite mixed up. While going to the spa has still been put on hold, it doesn’t mean that we have to deprive ourselves of relaxation. While your home might not feel like a spa, there’s always DIY to transform it into a soothing atmosphere. Here’s a few tips to help you pamper yourself after a long day of work.
First things first, set a spa-like mood. Bust out those fluffy towels. Run a warm water bath. Have that soothing playlist ready! Once you’ve recreated the smells and sounds of the spa, it’s time to gather up the essentials that will transform your space truly, into a spa.
Scent is one of the easiest ways to create a relaxing mood for your at-home spa experience. Go grab your diffuser if you have one or even scented candles. Try out aromatherapy candles - the wax inside has essential oils derived from leaves, herbs, bark, and rinds of plants. These scents trigger the brain's responses to make you feel calm, energized, or focused. If you’re having this spa sesh, right before you sleep then lavender is the undisputed queen in this matter. Lavender is used in aromatherapy to relax and calm, as well as relieve stress. If you’re down with a cold then tea tree oil could do wonders in relieving cold and flu symptoms.
The mood and ambience is set, so now it’s time for a few relaxing DIY spa treatments! Whip up a perfect treatment for your skin, nails, and hair. At the same time, you can indulge in a DIY foot soak and completely relax.
Dry brushing is a wellness treatment that helps in multiple ways – exfoliating the skin, making it smoother and stimulating lymphatic drainage. Dry brushing is just using a coarse bristle brush, against your skin. It stimulates blood flow and lightly exfoliates as well. This is used in light circular motions just before you hop into the shower.
Soothe your skin with a mini jade roller: This tiny tool can help minimize puffiness and boost blood circulation. Or massage your face with a gua sha. These tools can really promote relaxation because of their shape and cooling properties.
