Have a spa day from home
Life is hectic and with today being a bank holiday now is the perfect time to relax and pamper yourself silly!
Rub and rejuvenate your skin
Coconut oil is all the talk at the moment and it’s said to have many benefits on the hair and skin. Coconut oil is primarily made up of saturated fats and this type of fat is fantastic for nourishing and repairing your skin’s natural barrier so get smothering it anywhere and everywhere!
Relax your muscles
Run yourself a hot bath and unwind. As the bath is filling pour a good glug of your favourite scented bubble bath into the bath, light a few candles and then dim the lights. To really get you into the mood visit YouTube and type in ‘calming music.’
Rest your eyes
Sleepless nights? Check. Dark circles? Check. Puffiness? Check. Fear not for the fresh cucumber is here to rescue you! Start by cutting two thin slices of raw cucumber. Then lie down, close your eyes and place one cucumber slice over each eyelid. Cucumbers are packed with antioxidants and contain vitamin K and potassium which can help to reduce fine lines, dark circles and puffiness.
Give yourself a manicure and a pedicure!
Treat yourself to a manicure and a pedicure with your favourite coloured nail varnish. Remembering to start on a blank canvas, use a nail file to file and buff your nails. Grab your favourite body scrub and begin exfoliating your hands and feet as this will help to remove any dead skin cells. Then soak your hands in a bowl for a couple of minutes and soak your feet for ten minutes. Add a base coat to each nail and once that has dried you can begin to lacquer up your nails with your fave nail varnish!
