It’s good to look after yourself at times like these and self care can also be a great distraction when things are feeling a bit uncertain and stressful. While we may not be able to get to a beauty therapist or hairdresser at the moment we have put together a list of 10 at-home beauty treatments and activities so you can give yourself some TLC without having to leave your house.
At home facial
Whip out your beauty tools and those luxe face masks you’ve been saving up for a special occasion and give yourself an at-home facial. You can even rally your crew up and have a housepartyapp pamper sesh, add in a glass of vino and you’ve got yourself the perfect girls night in.
Who says being stuck indoors calls for pasty skin? Try out Bondi Sands new Aero Ultra Dark self-tanning foam for the perfect summer glow all year round or your own self-tanner you’ve been wanting to try out.
Scrub that bod
Ever heard of dry brushing? Well now is the time to try it out. With health benefits such as stress reduction, lymphatic stimulation and improving circulation as well as brushing away those dead skin cells, dry brushing is the new exfoliating.
Apply a hair mask
At times like this where you can’t visit your hairstylist on the reg your hair could use some extra attention. Apply a hair mask and let your hair absorb all of that goodness to leave you with hydrated, silky tresses.
Organise your beauty shelf
This lockdown period is the perfect time to organise your life and by life we mean those everything drawers, kitchen cupboards and beauty shelves. Then take a #shelfy and add it to the gram.
Try some nail art
If you’re like me, life on the “outside” meant going to get your nails did every couple of weeks, and by now, they might be looking a little bit worse for wear so why not try your hand at some nail art to spruce those claws up.
Whiten your teeth
Picked up one of those teeth whitening kits on a daily deal website but never got around to using it? Now’s the time to make those teeth shine!
Take a bubble bath
The classic bubble bath. You can’t beat it! Especially if you’re adding in any of the Lush range of bath bombs and soaps for extra fizz and hydration.
Recycle empty beauty containers
Get crafty and recycle some of your empty beauty containers instead of throwing them away and contributing to landfill. You can find some ideas for those right here.
Upload a makeup tutorial
Our final suggestion is to dust off your makeup bag and try your hand at filming your own makeup tutorial. If you’re anything like me, you haven’t worn makeup in weeks so this might be a nice way to make yourself up and bring some normality back into your world, even just for a moment.
