As much as we'd love to drop by our favorite spa every day after work, it would mean practically living on nothing but instant noodles for most of us. But this doesn’t mean we should settle for looking haggard on a daily basis! There are ways to get the spa experience without breaking the bank. Set out your fluffiest towels, put your favorite mellow tunes on loop, and light those scented candles, CGs—it’s spa day at home every day with these practical options:
Here's an affordable indulgence for tired eyes: brew some green tea, store it in the fridge, soak two cotton pads in the mix, and place them over your eyes. The antioxidants in the tea can reduce inflammation and soothe your strained peepers. Leave it on for around 10 minutes for a soothing treat!
Give yourself the complete spa treatment by steaming your face before putting on your other facial products. Clean your face and pat it dry, then hold it over a bowl with boiled water to open up pores and promote circulation. Steam your face for up to 10 minutes, and drape a towel over your head and the bowl to keep the heat in. Add some herbs or essential oils, like lavender or peppermint, in the water for a more authentic spa experience.
Get smooth skin that glows—just like it does after you spend hours in the spa—by using Dove Beauty Bar every day! Composed of ¼ moisturizing cream and mild cleansers, it’s perfect for daily use on your face, body, and hands. Lather Dove Beauty Bar all over your limbs, and in just one minute, you'll see how it worked its magic on your skin.
DIY nail mask
Yes, there is such a thing as a nail mask! Let’s take the DIY route for this one, since all you need to revive your dry, brittle nails are olive oil and honey. Just mix one teaspoon of each of the ingredients and rub onto fingertips. Rinse after 10 minutes and enjoy moisturized tips and toes!
Taking a long and relaxing warm shower, with just the glimmer of scented candles and the hum of your favorite slow songs keeping you company, is definitely a sweet way to unwind after a long day. It’s almost as good as a massage, since it improves circulation and even loosens tight muscles. Just be sure not to stay under the hot water too long, or else you’ll come out with parched skin!
