A change in season can be difficult on our bodies, making it so important to give yourself the time to unwind and relax this winter. So, take the cooler weather as an excuse to treat yourself to a little extra pampering, after a busy and eventful summer and recharge yourself with some of these super relaxing activities.
Relax with an in-home foot spa.
We’ve all had one of those desolate winter days, where we just cannot see any comfort in leaving the house, whatsoever! But you can still enjoy all of the benefits of a gorgeous day spa in the comfort of your own home. You’ll dream away a world of worry when you invest in an in-home foot spa. Add this inexpensive piece of equipment to your relaxing artillery, and you’ll enjoy a bubbling foot massage with water that never goes cold. Pair this with a gorgeous exfoliating foot scrub and nourishing foot lotion to take care of those winter feet.
Refresh your dry winter hair.
All that extra wind is not so good for our luscious locks. The additional environmental aggressors leave our hair damaged and brittle, not to mention looking frizzy, static and generally lackluster. Take care this winter and treat your hair to a little moisture remedy. The perfect damage remedy for your hair this winter is a leave in hair treatment to repair stressed out split ends. Through regular treatment you can minimise breakage by up to 90%, whilst giving your locks an enviously healthy glow.
Enjoy cleaning and creating healthy, relaxing surroundings.
During the winter months, we spend a lot more time indoors, and it’s relaxing to come home to a clean and enjoyable environment. Cleaning your home is actually an extremely therapeutic task, as it helps you to relax in a clutter-free environment. A beautiful way to take care of your home during winter and to ensure a relaxing and cleansed environment, is to clean your humble abode with food-grade essential oils. As you’ll be spending a lot of time indoors, you can relax easily knowing that your family isn’t breathing in harsh cleaning chemicals, and instead are enjoying the natural aromas of essential oils.
Take care of stressed out skin.
The drop in temperatures, the harsh winds and the dry air all contribute to our skin becoming stressed, dry and flaky during winter. This is because the outermost layer of our skin, which acts as a barrier to the elements, becomes damaged. This causes our natural moisture to leak out of our skin, releasing our natural oils. Be sure to take care of your skin by amping up the hydration in your regular skin care routine with an ultra nourishing, hyaluronic acid-based serum to lock in moisture, and a heavy moisturising cream to develop your skin’s protective barrier. And don’t forget about your fine lines this winter, relax with hydrating eye cream, to balance and revive the skin. Or you can take relaxation to a new level and try an at home DIY face mask, made from the ingredients you have at home, like avocado, honey and coconut oil.
Draw yourself a heavenly bath.
Relaxation takes its most obvious acclamation in the form of a beautiful bath. Set the scene for the ultimate relaxation, by burning a few candles and putting on a soothing soundtrack. Go all out and really unwind by purchasing bath salts with muscle relaxing properties or bubble bath for a little added luxury. Enjoy some private and relaxing quiet time and revel in the fact that you won’t be disturbed for just a little while.
