It’s officially the weekend and, some of us tend to get exhausted by the end of the week. In our chaotic schedules of meeting deadlines and juggling between a thousand different things, it’s also important to pause and take a breather. Furthermore, taking a break is essential to avoid a complete burn-out. What better way to relax and reboot than to have a DIY spa day in the comfort of your home?
Here are our suggestions for you to have your very own pamper session:
1.Choose a Perfect Movie/Show
While the entire week kept you busy, weekends are a perfect opportunity to binge-watch your favourite show and movies. The first step of our spa day involves choosing your preferred source of entertainment. It could be any movie or series that you have been eager to watch but were unable to due to time constraints. We would recommend Bridgerton or Schitt’s Creek for the ultimate binge-fest.
2. Prepare a Soothing Drink
The second step is to be ready with a calming and soothing drink to get- rid of the toxins and stress. Lavender or Chamomile tea is the perfect companion for a calming day, although if you are craving sugary drinks – go ahead because it’s your day and – only you make the rules!
3.Prepare a Bath
If you have a bathtub, a nice relaxing bath is a perfect way to kickstart your weekend. However, if your bathroom is not equipped with a bathtub, you can always enjoy a warm shower and clean all that grime and dirt out of your body. A quick and comforting DIY pedicure is another way to ensure a complete pamper session. Don’t forget to add a few essential oils to the water.
4. Mask on
It’s finally time to focus on your skincare. You can prepare moisturizing and hydrating face masks involving ingredients like curd, aloe vera, honey, coffee, and clay. If making your mask seems like a big hassle, you can always opt for mask sheets or mud masks to give that glow back to your skin.
5. Spend Time with Yourself
The focal point of a spa day is to de-stress and unwind, so make sure to spend the day doing whatever helps you calm down. You can catch up on your sleep, spend time talking to your friends or family, or simply chill for the entire day. Give your body a day to relax and try to switch off all the stressful and negative thoughts of your creative brain.
