As we enter yet another month of lockdown, the situation may have left you feeling tired or at least pretty fed up which is not surprising as many of us are currently juggling parenting, homeschooling, and trying to sustain a full-time job. That’s why treating yourself to a pamper session is becoming a necessity. Taking time out to look after yourself is a great way to boost your mood, help you switch off from work and feel re-energized.
A spa experience at home doesn’t need to consume too much of your time, it can involve just creating a few simple habits which will allow you to not think for a while and focus on yourself.
Set the scene
Feeling relaxed has a lot to do with the environment you are in. Fill your home with the scent of fresh basil and garden mint. A light and refreshing fragrance that will help you to relax and unwind.
Soak up your troubles away
Unwind, relieve stress, and ease achy muscles with Westlab’s Cleansing Himalayan Salt which includes over 80 minerals. These salt crystals were formed millions of years ago before any modern-day pollution. The result – a clear natural salt which feels like pure luxury.
Feed your skin
Wrap your body in beautiful buttery goodness. This Sanctuary Spa Body Butter consists of a creamy blend of shea butter, cocoa butter, sweet almond and macadamia nut oil. The butter melts into your skin to leave it feeling instantly hydrated and smooth to touch.
