Whenever you feel drained of energy and need to re-charge your batteries, here are a few tips that will transform your home into a relaxing spa:
Regular exfoliation is great for your skin but it also feels great. It helps you eliminate dead skin cells on the surface of your skin, thus preventing it from drying and also helping against cellulite, as well.
For a fantastic body scrub all you need is brown sugar and olive oil. For extra effect and hydration combine these 2 ingredients with honey, which also helps against acne if you’re facing this problem. You can use this mixture every time you shower. Use circular motions to scrub. By doing this regularly your skin will be transformed shortly.
Refreshing Feet Mask
Don’t forget that your feet need attention, as well. And there’s nothing more relaxing than a tantalizing feet massage after a long hard day at work.
For this you need oat, corn flour, sea salt and olive oil. To get the refreshing sensation, add aloe gel in the mixture, as well.
Massage your feet with the mask and leave to act for a few minutes. Rinse with warm water.
Candles are the ultimate addition to a relaxing setting, whether at home or at a spa. They’re available in a wide range of colors, shapes and aromas.
Just find a place for them in the bathroom, while taking a shower, for example, or while reading a good book and drinking a glass of wine. Add them to whichever relaxing activity you enjoy and you will feel their effect on your mood.
Illuminating Skin Treatments
Papaya and pineapple scrub is perfect for giving your skin shininess. For a glamorous, elastic skin mix papaya or pineapple with yogurt and honey and apply it on your face and body. Get your loved one to help you, if you wish. Leave to act for 20 minutes and then rinse with warm water.
A bubble bath is the ultimate pampering moment. Combine it with candles and a glass of wine and you’ll be in heaven. Choose aromas such as ylang ylang, coconut oil, vanilla or lavender for extra relaxation.
While enjoying your bubble bath, listen to your favorite music. It might be best not to choose rock music or anything this jumpy, because you’re aiming to relax not get all worked up. Choose something slow, romantic or even ocean or forest noises which you can find on youtube. Some people find rain sounds soothing.
