Do it Your­self SPA Day

The Star (St. Lucia) - Life Begins 2 Nite - - NEWS - By Hack­shaw Michele-Lau­ren

What bet­ter way to kill post car­ni­val woes than to sched­ule a lit­tle ‘me’ time, and turn your be­d­room or bath­room into your own per­sonal spa? See be­low for the es­sen­tials for a D.I.Y Spa day!

PEACE AND QUIET:

Find a spot in your house that will be ideal for pure seren­ity. Give so­cial me­dia a break by turn­ing off your phone or at least putting it on silent. It’ll be worth it.

SET THE MOOD:

Get a comfy robe or t-shirt and slip­pers, bot­tled wa­ter and your favourite snack(s). Set the mood with sooth­ing mu­sic and glass or two of wine or prosecco. Set up an es­sen­tial oil dif­fuser or light in­cense sticks to re­ally set the mood.

DETOX WA­TER:

Fill a jug with wa­ter and jazz it up with your favourite (sliced) fruits. Lemon wa­ter is a great com­bi­na­tion and it boosts the im­mune sys­tem, as well as aids with di­ges­tion and skin con­di­tions.

STEAM YOUR FACE:

Boil a ket­tle and pour it into a bowl with a towel. Al­low the towel to cool slightly, then place it over your face and al­low your pores to open up. Do this for 5-10 min­utes as you re­lax.

FA­CIAL EXFOLIATOR:

Ex­fo­li­ate us­ing your favourite fa­cial scrub to get rid of dead skin cells for soft and glow­ing skin.

BODY SCRUB / HAIR MASK:

Use a body scrub whilst in the shower to thor­oughly cleanse your body. Then treat your­self to a re­lax­ing bath as you re­vive your hair with a good hair mask. Rinse off in the shower, and you’re good to go.

SOOTHE FEET:

Soft feet? Use a buf­fer; oth­er­wise use some­thing a bit tougher for cal­luses.

MAN­I­CURE AND PEDICURE:

Am­plify your mood by paint­ing your fin­ger and toe nails with your favourite pol­ish!

RE­LAX:

Spend the rest of the day re­lax­ing, whether that for you means binge watch­ing movies/shows or cook­ing up your favourite meal!
