I have some big news: spring is just around the corner!
There is no better way to get rid of the winter blues than a little pampering. I have come up with a list of some very pleasant activities which will help you refresh your body and mind and embrace the spring vibe.
So here are my 5 ways to pamper yourself this spring!
Home beauty pampering
Get some luxury pampering in the comfort of your own home.
Start with running a nice warm bubble bath, put some music on, read a book or a magazine and relax.
Then use some good quality natural products to pamper your body.
I have very fine and delicate hair and I use only natural shampoos that are silicone-free. They make my hair stronger and fuller, as well as keeping it fresh and clean for much longer.
In terms of facial care, I really love using products containing active charcoal like Dr Organic Charcoal Face Scrub from Holland and Barret, it’s very gentle but effective.
I think active charcoal is a miracle ingredient as it does really work and it has been used in so many products recently, from facial care to tooth whitening!
I also love using sheet masks and my favourite is ORGAID Antiaging & Moisturizing Organic Mask.
I am really NOT into exercise and I usually have to force myself to do it. The only exception is yoga.
There are numerous health benefits of yoga like: it builds muscle strength, protects your spine, increases your blood flow, boosts your immunity, ups your heart rate, drops your blood pressure and releases tension in your limbs.
It also reduces stress, helps you relax, sleep deeper and focus. But most importantly – it’s really pleasant and enjoyable for both body and mind.
Even if a number one gym hater like me actually enjoys yoga, it must be good!
There are so many different types of yoga to choose from and you could either do it at home or go to classes. It’s a great way of pampering your body and mind and I really recommend it to anyone.
If you haven’t got anything specific planned, allow yourself to sleep in at the weekend. Don’t set the alarm and let your body get as much sleep as it needs.
I am aware of theories that sleeping in at the weekend is not good for you however I have never really believed it.
I am not a morning person and after the pure torture of getting up early during the week I cannot imagine giving up my weekend lie-ins.
I was not surprised when I found out about the new research suggesting that hitting snooze on Saturday morning might actually be a good thing! You can read about it here.
I don’t think there is anything more relaxing in this world than a good massage! It releases tensions and helps both your body and mind relax.
There are so many different types of massages to choose from: Swedish Massage, Aromatherapy Massage, Hot Stone Massage, Deep Tissue Massage, Shiatsu Massage, Thai Massage…
I think I am going to try the hot stone massage next!
Go away for a weekend in the countryside where you can be close to nature and watch it blossoming right in front of your eyes. It will let you escape the hustle and bustle of everyday city life and truly relax.
Try some local organic food, breathe in the fresh air, listen to the hypnotising sounds of nature and observe its magnificent colour palette which inspired brilliant artists like Monet to create their masterpieces.
Unless you are lucky enough to live in the countryside in which case I am very jealous!
Hope I have inspired you to give yourself some love with my 5 ways to pamper yourself this spring. Thank you so much for reading!
