4 Easy Ways to Pamper Yourself at Home
When you want to pamper yourself, you can’t always get out and about and go to a salon or spa, so you may want to try some pampering treatments at home. You don’t always need to fork out for a facial or professional pedicure, you can get good results at home with simple treatments such as the ones below.
- Use a mask sheet
Facials are a good way to balance your skin’s PH, clear out clogged pores and much more, but a similar effect can be had by using mask sheets (known as ผลิตภัณฑ์มาร์คหน้า in Thai). Made out of a soft fabric, these masks are soaked in cleanser, moisturiser or toner, and the masks sit close to your face so you get the full benefit of these products.
- Home manicures and pedicures
There’s nothing quite like the feel of freshly manicured nails, but getting them done on a regular basis is expensive.
There are advantages to doing your own nails at home:
- You get a wider choice of products
- You can get home machines for gel nails, so you get the same long-lasting finish
- You don’t have to sit and talk to a stranger
- You can spend more time on nail art and getting a unique look
- There’s no rush – you can soak your hands or feet for as long as you like
If you want to do home manicures and pedicures, you only need a few pieces of equipment to get started.
- Steam facials
Another alternative to a facial you can do at home is giving yourself a steam facial. This opens up and cleanses your pores, leaving your skin glowing and healthy. You need to be careful when dealing with hot water, make sure it’s not so hot it’ll burn your skin. Steam facials use a bowl of hot, not boiling water with a few drops of essential oils. You then place your face close to the water, and put a towel over your head, so you get the feel of a steam room.
- Milk baths
The latest social media trend harks back to the olden days. Milk baths can be made by filling your bath as usual, then adding a couple of pints of milk, some essential oils and rose petals. They smell great and make you feel like you’ve had a luxury skincare treatment.
If you can’t make it to the spa, bring it home with you with some of the simple, but effective treatments above.
