Stepping out in this intolerable heat could be a nightmare to even the most adventurous of souls. But then, you want to pamper yourself and do so right away? If the relentless sun is wrecking havoc on your skin and sense of well being, it’s time indulge yourself with some TLC, albeit in the comfort of your own sweet home. We show you how to transform your bathroom into a spa!
Pamper your senses with a dash of aromatherapy. Right from candles to your shower gels and down to that scrub, they’re packed with diverse fragrances guaranteed to soothe your nerves and get you perfectly into the ‘relaxed’ mode. A good start to your pampering session!
Dim lights, scintillating fragrances and soothing massages – ah, nirvana! Light those scented candles and soak up the dimmed splendour. Pick up the lavender or sandalwood scented candles as they are quite effective when it comes to lowering your blood pressure and soothe those frayed nerves. And by the way, candles work out a lot cheaper while providing that exclusively therapeutic touch.
There’s nothing as peaceful and relaxing as the bubble bath. It’s definitely sexy and a perfect way to unwind after a hectic day. Here’s how you can create your very own, special bubble bath. Use natural dish soap and add a few drops of your favourite scented oils, like lavender or rose. Finally, throw in some rose petals and it’s time to soak up the luxurious experience. Dim those lights and just relax!
Who doesn’t love a good massage, especially after a hectic day? And, if the masseur happens to be your partner, it’s double whammy! Pick up any massage oil and it’s time to loosen those sore muscles with some naughty nothings thrown in!
Fruits aren’t just good for your health. They’re just so brilliant for your skin as well. Packed with minerals and vitamins, they’re store houses of nature’s goodness. Fruits like banana, papaya, strawberry, tomatoes and oranges are perfect to give your skin that glow. So, just mash that banana or strawberry, add some yoghurt and give your skin the fruity treat.
In this era of increasing pollution and rising stress levels, your hair is sure to face the brunt of it. Deep conditioning is the key to long, shiny tresses. And, here’s how you can do it in the shower without forking out a fortune at the salon. Mash half an avocado, mix 2 teaspoons of coconut oil, add ¼ cup of coconut milk and apply it on your hair. Rinse thoroughly after 15 – 20 minutes and watch that shine creeping back to your mane.
Your feet are on the move practically all day long! And, it’s mighty important that they’re pampered in a befitting manner. A foot soak is a perfect solution for your tired feet. Here’s an easy way to do it without too much hassle. Add two cups of milk to hot water and a cup of honey. Soak your feet into this mixture and relax. Rinse after 15 minutes and your feet are all set to rock your world!
Lather up! It’s time to make those hands feel like a million bucks! Start off with a hand massage. Be sure to apply pressure evenly, especially around each finger. Massage the spot between your thumb and forefinger, in firm but gentle motion. After the massage therapy, file those nails and paint them any shade which reflects your mood – hot pink or bright red or even sultry green! It’s all in your hands (pun intended).
