Hola Lovely Alphas!
XOXOAHY here! (:
So it’s the end of December, between Christmas and New Year’s. Some of us are on winter break from school, which means we now have a lot of time to hang out and relax. But sometimes it’s hard to relax while at home and not out at a spa. So here are a few things that you could do to help create your own mini at-home spa day.
None of these are in a specific order and there’s always more than just these few things…Remember, these are just a few suggestions.
The most obvious thing to do is give yourself a manicure and pedicure. It’s an easy way to relax and be creative with your nail design. Just don’t forget to soak your cuticles or put lotion on them before pushing them back. It could damage them if you don’t.
Deep conditioning you hair is also a great thing to do for your spa day, and it could really help your hair. Just apply a deep conditioner to your dry hair, coating it thoroughly. If your hair is in desperate need of conditioning, it will soak up the conditioner quickly, and you should re-apply the deep conditioner. Repeat this process until your hair is soaked with conditioner. In most cases, three applications will do the trick. Now place a shower cap over your hair, leaving the conditioner in from a half hour to 2 hours (depending on how much your hair needs conditioned). Then just take the cap off, rinse the conditioner out with cold water, and your hair should be more healthy and conditioned.
One of the things I find most relaxing is taking a hot bath or jacuzzi. To make it more day spa-esque, you could add some soothing, essential oils to the water. You could maybe even get some pretty flowers(such as the ones in the picture above) and let them float on top of the water. Lighting either my favourite scented candles or aromatherapy candles and placing them around my jacuzzi bath also helps me to relax…but that’s just me.
Steam facials are wonderful. They really open up your pores and help clear them out. All you have to do is boil some water and pour in into a large bowl or your bathroom sink. Then drape a towel over your head and sit with your head over the steaming water. You don’t have to put your face completely over the water, just enough (as in the picture above) so that the steam can reach your face. Do this for about five to ten minutes.
Lastly, don’t forget to moisturize your skin. It’s so important to do so in order to keep your skin healthy.
Enjoy your relaxation time!
