This is the time of year when we all seem to be worn out by the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season. When we feel tired, we look tired. With the new year approaching we also tend to analyze ourselves about everything we don’t like. I’m going to recommend doing just the opposite. Focus on what you do like and learn how to pamper yourself to rejuvenate your mind, body, and spirit – and celebrate you by creating a home spa day.
Things you will need:
A notepad, pen, aromatherapy candle, green tea, bottle of water, avocado, organic honey, body brush, shower cap, epsom salts, and champagne.
Do the following:
– Mix avocado and one tablespoon of organic honey to make a mask.
– Make yourself a cup of green tea. It’s loaded with antioxidants and is anti-aging.
– Grab your note pad and pen. Make a list of everything you need to do, priorities first. This helps to clear your head so you can relax and help you to sleep better.
Start your home spa day:
Bring these things with you to the bathroom: epsom salts, avocado mask, body brush, shower cap, strawberries, glass of champagne, and candle.
Light your aromatherpy candle. Start a bath with 4 cups of epsom salts. This will draw toxins out of your body and help to reduce aches and pains. Always drink a bottle of water after a detox bath.
Before you get in the bath, use the body brush on dry skin. Using circular motions, start at your feet and work upward towards your heart, all over your body. This is a very popular technique in Europe and is known to remove toxins, dead skin cells and improve circulation.
Soak in your bath and put a small amount of avocado mask on your face; the rest goes on your hair. Put on a shower cap. Soak for 20 minutes while the mask nourishes your hair and skin.
Now relax your mind and body while enjoying a glass of champagne and strawberries. Aside from being delicious, strawberries are a natural dental whitener. Focus on what is good in your life, and celebrate you.
