Has the lockdown got you pulling out your hair? Why not treat yourself and your skin to a DIY pamper day?
This awesome article has got all the tips to ensure your spa day will be a huge success!
We know one of your favourite things to do while holidaying with us is to book a luxurious and relaxing spa day. But until you visit again, we thought we would bring the spa to you!
Take a few hours to pamper yourself. Set up a room with your favourite music, draw the curtain, light some scented candles, brew your favourite tea and sit back and enjoy. Mix up scrubs and masks and take care of your face, body and feet! You will feel like a new person.
PAMPER YOUR SKIN WITH THESE SCRUBS
A good scrub serves to exfoliate your face, removing the dead cells and leaving you with a new, glowing face. It prevents clogging of the pores which might lead to breakouts and encourages the production of collagen. It helps the skin absorb the products you put on better. Try not to use a scrub more than three times a week; there is such a thing as over-exfoliation which might cause skin irritation.
Be careful of the products you put on your face; some products can be too harsh or too rough. You want to treat your face with the utmost care and gentleness. Avoid using these scrubs on broken skin and do test the product on the inside of your elbow before trying on your face to check for allergies and reactions.
For dry skin:
- Mix one tablespoon brown sugar, one tablespoon honey and one tablespoon olive oil. Apply to your face and let it stand for about five minutes. Rinse off, cleanse and moisturise.
For oily skin:
- Mix three tablespoons of honey and one tablespoon of ground cinnamon. Apply to your face and leave it for about seven minutes. Rinse off, cleanse and moisturise.
- Mix the contents of two green tea bags, one cup of white sugar and 3/4 cup of coconut oil. You can adjust the amount of coconut oil to suit your consistency needs. Use it to scrub your body. Let it sit for five minutes and wash off in warm water.
- Mix two tablespoons of coffee grounds, two tablespoons of sugar and one tablespoon of coconut oil. Apply to your feet and let sit for 20 minutes while you watch an episode of your favourite series or read a chapter of that book or just, simply, daydream. Rinse off and moisturise.
