There’s no day like Sunday to unwind and recharge your batteries. With lockdowns across many states forcing us to slow down and stay home, it’s important to dedicate some time to self-care, and what better way than by creating your own at-home spa experience?
Whether you want to enjoy an entire day of pampering or only have 20 minutes for a quick pick-me-up, today’s wellness and self-care ideas are simple but can make all the difference in your mindset.
Add them to your Sunday self-care routine and you’ll be more than ready for the week ahead!
Make yourself a fruit-infused water
Hydration starts from within and having something to sip on while you pamper yourself is a must. A glass of water does the job, but it’s not the most exciting beverage for your DIY spa day, so why not add a little extra to your refreshment by incorporating some fruit?
You can use any fruits you’d like, but if you’re looking for some inspiration, these are our two favourite fruit water recipes:
Lemon and blueberries
How to make it: Add 4 slices of lemon and 10 blueberries to 250ml of water.
Lemon water has gained a lot of popularity over the years and rightly so: thanks to its vitamin C, lemon helps strengthen your immune system, while also nourishing your skin, and reducing signs of aging and sun damage.
The blueberries are the perfect finishing touch to your drink, as they are rich in antioxidants and vitamins, promoting healthy skin and hair.
Strawberries, lime and mint
How to make it: Add ⅓ cup of sliced strawberries, 2 slices of lime and a few leaves of fresh mint to 250 ml of water.
Also rich in vitamin C, both strawberries and lime are great natural solutions if you’re looking to promote hair growth, or minimise dandruff and improve the health of your scalp. The mint adds that extra freshness that will make you feel truly re-energised!
Give yourself a scalp massage
If you have ever gotten a scalp massage at a spa, you know just how soothing it is. The good news is, you can do it yourself and feel just as relaxed.
