Pampering Yourself: A Few Tips and Tricks

Pampering yourself is not just something fun to do but something we should all do at least once in a while. Given the harshness of Winter and the bustle of every day life, it can be hard to just take a few moments to yourself and give your body some well deserved pampering! Today I will be sharing with you a few tips and tricks I like to use when I want to pamper myself. 

Tip 1 - Body Care

Nothing makes my body feel more luxurious than using good quality body care products. Whether you want your hands to feel super soft or your entire body, using products that contain nourishing ingredients such as almond and milk really help to give a very indulgent feeling as well as soothing your skin. A great way to have your body feeling super soft is to exfoliate all the dry skin off and then apply a moisturising body butter to lock in the moisture.

Tip 2 - Give yourself a mini-facial 

Sometimes we all need to revitalise our skin a little bit, giving yourself a mini-facial in the comfort of your own home is not only cost-effective but also a great way to revitalise your skin. Something I like to do that makes my face feel renewed is to fill a bowl with hot water, drop a tab such as Dream Steam (Lush) into the water to let it fizz, once done simply place a towel over your head and place your head above the bowl while your pores open up and takes in the oils. Take a look at my 'Switch up your Skincare' post for some more skincare tips!

Tip 3 - Foot spa

Being on your feet every day is undoubtedly very tiring and it is very easy to forget that your feet need some love too! When you have time, simply place your feet into a bowl of hot water - not too hot, let your feet soak for 5-10 minutes and apply a nourishing lotion - one of my favourites is the L'Occitane Shea Butter Foot Cream. To intensify the softness of your feet, put on some socks whilst your feet take in the hydration of the cream. 

Tip 4 - Gel Polish

Manicures are always a classic choice for pampering yourself, I love to use Barry M polishes as their polishes have multiple uses such as their Super Mani. Using a gel nail polish is also a really great to make your hands feel and look luxurious. Using either a regular polish and shiny top coat can also make your nails look super polished. 

Tip 5 - Pampering your mind 

Pampering your body is great but your mind also needs some of that pampering too. I really enjoy sitting down with a good book after pampering my body for some much needed mind-pampering. I suggest a book about being positive, chasing after your goals - one of my favourites is 'The Mind Makeover' by Sharron Lowe. It doesn't have to reading but doing something that renews and revitalises your mind is a great way to pamper it. A suggestion for an activity could be yoga, swimming, going to spa. If you have some time, why not check out my post on staying positive to inspire you some more?
