As fun as it can be to hit happy hour after a long week, sometimes it’s more enjoyable to lounge at home and transform your space into your own relaxation sanctuary. Here are some of our favourite ways to unwind so you can get some much needed R&R from the comfort of your home.
Create a Relaxing Ambience
There’s something about the soft light from candles that makes everything immediately feel so peaceful. Whether you’re working from your desk at home, reading in bed, or whipping up a tasty evening meal, light a candle to create a soothing ambience and peaceful space.
Relax in the Bath
Love relaxing baths as much as Chandler from Friends? Us too! To really turn your bathtub into an at-home spa, try cocktailing your products (we’re talking salts, bath bombs, and oils) to create a stress-relieving soak that’s personal to you.
Treat Your Skin
There’s nothing that beats that feeling of coming home and removing your make-up. Sweeping away all of the dirt, toxins, and stress from the day with a trusty cleanser is the ultimate skincare ritual. Use a formula that works for your skin type but wipe it away with a damp muslin cloth for a little exfoliation and facial massage at the same time.
First Cleanse, Then Mask
After a deep cleanse, a pampering sheet mask is a surefire way to refresh and care for your complexion. Social media has been recently flooded with celebrities like Chrissy Teigen using them to get ready before big red carpet events. We can’t blame them! Not only are masks fun to wear and share on social media, they’re also soothing and bring you major benefits. Try one weekly on a Sunday night to wind down from the weekend and recharge for the week ahead.
There are the lucky few in life who fall asleep the second their heads hit the pillow. For the rest of us, who spend what feels like an eternity tossing and turning, try Spacemasks. Just a few minutes with this on your eyes before bed and you’ll sleep soundly. The clever mask heats up on contact with your skin and is infused with mind-soothing jasmine to help you unwind and switch off.
