Head to toe pampering doesn’t have to feel like a lot of work if you understand how. There are pampering tips that are simple and will leave you feeling fabulous inside and out. So, whether you are sticking it out indoors or sprucing yourself up for a special occasion, make sure you look and feel like a million bucks. Invest the time because you are worth spending extra on.

Use a fresh and good quality deodorant

There is nothing quite like smelling fantastic and feeling dry – it’s a must really. Even if you are not into grandiose expressions of beauty, putting a great smelling and good quality deodorant on is a great way to make you feel pampered. Choose an antiperspirant roll-on that can serve two pampering purposes for an added boost to your routine. For example, opt for a mineral enriched, even tone or super fresh-scented deodorant to keep you dry while nourishing, treating dark marks or refreshing your underarms – it goes the extra mile for you. Scents such as cucumber & green tea or grapefruit & lemongrass are invigorating, refreshing, and will leave you feeling uplifted.

Wear a mask – on your hair

Hair treatment masks are designed to give you a concentrated boost – they work best for dry, damaged or frizzy hair but that doesn’t stop them from doing wonders for hair that just needs a little pep. Some masks and hair care products can even help to boost scalp health – an added benefit. A hair mask treatment once a week or fortnightly will make a visible difference to your hair’s appearance and feel. It’s an effortless step to add to your routine.

Give your whole body a scrub

Exfoliating body and face polishes, beauty bars and scrubs help to remove dead and dying skin cells expediently. They help your body along with its natural skin shedding process and assist it to appear brighter and more even. This small beauty moment has a significant impact on the appearance of your body and facial skin. Try to add exfoliating both your body and face to your routine at least once a week.

Load on the moisturiser

From body lotion to skin creams, moisturisers are one of the most effective and essential tools in any beauty arsenal. They help to treat dry face and body skin and prevent further drying by holding water in the skin and assisting natural oils to nourish its surface. You should moisturise at least once a day. Ideally, this should be done after a bath or shower to help lock in the moisture and leave your skin feeling nourished.

In the face of the global healthcare crisis, it’s the new normal to wash your hands frequently. This can leave your skin feeling dry and chapped, so don’t forget to take extra care to moisturise your hands too. Use lotions and creams specifically designed for hand care for extra comfort and moisture.

Use products with a conscience

Feeling good shouldn’t have to come at a price – opt for beauty and care products with a conscience. Brands that support sustainability and ethical beauty practices are a great way to enjoy your beauty, without it coming at a price. Brands endorsed by PETA or certified as sustainably sourced are a great way to celebrate beauty with integrity.

It’s essential to feel good even when you don’t have a fancy event to attend or a hot date. When you feel great on the outside, you feel better on the inside because true health incorporates your mind, body and soul – take care of your body first and let the rest follow suit.
