Paradise Skin Care: How To Create Spa Atmosphere At Home To Pamper Body And Soul
Body massage, aromatherapy, complex hair care... Sounds so tempting, right? Unfortunately, many ladies are so busy that we simply don’t have time to book beauty procedures due to the tough working schedule or many other reasons. And how do you like the idea of arranging only-you-spa-day without leaving your bathroom?
Today we'll share some tips and tell how to treat your skin, body, and hair better than in Spa Salon.
Oil Face Massage
Self-massage at home has become popular among Japanese women. From an early age, girls learn different techniques and massage their faces almost every day. They say this beauty procedure helps women to maintain a snow-white skin tone until old age.
At the moment, there are many techniques for self-massage: from sculptural tingling to anti-aging. If you are aiming to relax, go for the classic option. You will need aromatic massage oil, a gouache scraper (optional), and a terry towel.
First, cleanse your skin thoroughly. Then warm up your face with a steam bath or towel so that the muscles become more pliable and the face oil is well absorbed. Next, move along the massage lines in the following order:
• From the middle of the forehead to the temples
• From the inner corner of the eye to the outer (upper eyelid)
• From the outer corner of the eye to the inner corner (lower eyelid)
• From the tip of the nose and nostrils up to the bridge of the nose
• From the middle of the dimple above the upper lip and base of the nose to the temples
• From the middle of the chin to the edge of the cheeks
• From the middle of the neck (jugular cavity) to the base of the chin and back to the collarbones
After massage gently pat the face oil into your skin. If your skin is not hypersensitive, extend the spa treatment and do peeling. Remember that the abrasive particles should not be too large, otherwise you risk injuring your skin.
Relaxing Bath With Essentials Oils
A warm bath helps the body relax and promotes good sleep. The water shouldn’t be too hot. The atmosphere during a relaxing bath plays a key role. Dim the lights, light aromatic candles and prepare fluffy towels. The bath turns into a majestic spa ritual if you add essential oils to the water. Chamomile, lavender, clary sage, neroli, and rose oils are very soothing. For those who suffer from insomnia, it is better to use bath salt with sweet marjoram and lavender.
After a warm bath the skin will be steamed, so you can safely peel your body. If your muscles are still tense, massage them with a dry brush. Next, choose a scrub with oils and start the exfoliation procedure.
Pay more attention to problem areas such as the forearms, buttocks, heels, and elbows. Peel the rest of the body as well. Be careful with the backs of your hands, belly, and inner thighs. The skin there is especially delicate, so it is better to massage it without much pressure towards the heart. Take a contrast shower to wash off the remains of the scrub.
Home hair care has an amazing effect. Start your beauty ritual with steaming your scalp. You need to wrap your head with a hot towel and hold it for about 20 minutes to open the pores. After that, you can peel the scalp to improve blood circulation, remove excess sebum and other impurities. Take a special mask and start by slowly stroking the fingers of both hands from your forehead to the back of your head. Gradually increase the pressure to feel the massage on the head.
After exfoliation, switch to shampooing. You can use a sulfate-free shampoo that gently cleanses the hair and does not wash off the dye. Apply a nourishing mask if desired, and use a nourishing serum for damaged hair instead of conditioner. It will protect your curls from hot temperature extremes and make styling easier.
Once you've done your self-massage, body exfoliation, and hair care, it's time to take care of your skin. Get a fragrant body lotion with a texture reminiscent of a soufflé or mousse. Massage the skin thoroughly until it is smooth and silky. Create a relaxing post-spa atmosphere by brewing your favorite tea and taking a few minutes to meditate.
Now you know how to create a spa atmosphere easily without leaving home and relax after a hard day at work. We hope you find the beauty tips useful. Pamper yourself more often!
