Another busy week is behind you. Juggling between business meetings, yoga classes, and chores can leave you quite drained. Hectic schedules can make it difficult to squeeze in anything more than applying a moisturizer or plucking your eyebrows. Even though you may neglect your beauty rituals on work days, the weekend is the perfect time to indulge in the little beauty rituals that will help you feel refreshed and alluring. Here are some tips that will spark your desire to pamper yourself at the end of the week.
1. Treat your face with a glow
Pollution, stress, and sleep deprivation take their toll on your skin. The first thing you should do is to make sure you’re drinking enough water. Hydration starts from within and there is no moisturizer that can substitute the deficit of h20 in your body. When it comes to facials, if you’re not in a mood for making a trip to your local beauty salon, don’t worry. There are plenty of treatments that you can do at home. Start by exfoliating your skin. By removing the dead cells, that dull and tired look will disappear too. Treat your face with some nourishing facial mask. There is a wide range of them out there so it’s best to choose the one suitable for your skin type.
There aren’t many things that can beat a nice hot bath after a long week at the office. Now that you have more time to give yourself some TLC, think about visiting a nearby spa. There, you can indulge in a royal treatment that includes a sauna, swimming pool, and a relaxing massage. However, if you’re not a spa lover, there are easy ways to pamper yourself at home. Fill your bathtub and add a few drops of your favourite essential oil. This will relax your muscles and your mind too. Dim the lights and play some ambient music in the background while sipping a glass of wine. It just doesn’t get better than that, does it?
Many people believe that half of the woman’s beauty is in her hair. This is the month when Australian Hair Fashion Awards take place so it’s understandable why everyone is buzzing about it. Whether or not you’re a hair fashionista, your weekend beauty boost should include a visit to a hairdresser. If you already haven’t, do some research and find some luxury hair salon Melbourne has to offer. Whether you’re up for a haircut or a just a massage in a washing chair, you’ll leave the salon looking fabulous and accompanied by feel-good sensations. Why not try a new hairstyle? If you usually wear your hair straight, try those beach waves and vice versa. Be creative and have fun!
No head-to-toe beauty treatment is complete without a manicure. You can make a splurge and visit a manicurist or you can do your own mani-pedi treatment at home. There are many tutorials online about how to give yourself a salon-quality manicure. Investing in high-quality nail files and nail polishes will ensure your nails stay healthy and beautiful. You don’t have to spend a fortune on good nail polish, however, those that are price are usually worth it. In the end, you will want your nails to stay flawless during the week so you can spend your time on something more fun than retouching your nail polish every other evening.
Working on your meal prep on Sunday afternoon is fantastic, but sticking to it in the middle of a crazy-making week may be challenging sometimes. That’s why you should pamper yourself at the weekend. Although you may be tempted to spend two days in bed ordering in, resist the temptation and go for something healthier. Whether it’s a fancy dinner in your favourite restaurant or a nice home-cooked meal, savour something that will boost your health and not just your appetite. Choose foods with high nutritive value, rich with vitamins and you’ll feel energised and ready to tackle the new week with bells on.
Although it’s sometimes easy to neglect our self-care routine during the week, there are many ways we can pamper ourselves during the weekend. It’s the perfect time to get a beauty boost and start a new week feeling fresh and fabulous.
