Self Care 101: Getting a Quarantine Glow

Saturday, April 4, 2020

Since we are all having to stay at home to keep away from the virus at the minute, I think its a great time to give yourself abit of self care. Imagine coming out of the quarantine and glowing like a goddess and feeling great.

While we have lots of spare time, we might aswell focus on ourselves. It's time to delve into your bathroom cupboards and find all the face masks and moisturisers.

Get your body movin'

As we get a walk a day, why not use it! I have 3 small dogs and I reckon they have never had this many dog walks in their lives. Walking and being around nature is scientifically proven to make you feel more energised and happy. Whilst we are getting abit of sunshine here in the UK, why not do it and I promise you won't regret it.

Why not try a new sport? Take up some yoga or do a home HIIT exercise workout. Just because gyms have closed, it shouldn't be an excuse not to get your body moving!

Have a bubble bath.

Literally nothing better than getting in a hot bubble bath after you've been on a cold walk or your a bit achey from yesterdays workout. If you don't have any bubble bath or lush bath bombs to enjoy a nice bath. A bit of body wash and a candle will do the trick. Grab a book and a hot cup of tea and relax! Try and keep this time tech-free as a lot of social media at the minute is slightly negative so best to keep away as much as possible.

Give your body a good scrub and shave.

Once a week, a good body scrub and shave is a really good way to get rid of the all dead skin and hair. I absolutely love it when my skin is silky smooth. Keep an eye on my blog for a homemade scrub with an in-built moisturiserssoon as I know a lot of stuff is very difficult to get hold of products at the minute.

Mask it up 

Put a hair mask, face mask, foot mask on. You name it, mask it. Masks are a great way to moisturise, deep clean and care for your body. During my usual day to day life, I tend to forget about face and hair masks a lot. But its super important to moisturise your hair especially if you like to dye your hair or like to apply heat.

Clean your sheets

Another treat, I like to do around my pamper evening is to make sure I clean my sheets. Its the best feeling when you get in a crisp clean bed and your soft skin touches the sheets. Just do it, its amazing.

Lastly, I don't know your situation, maybe you prefer to pamper yourself and enjoy this on your own. But why not get your family involved and get everyone doing face masks and nail painting. I feel like everyone finds face masks funny so why not bring a bit of positivity to your house or make it into a pamper party and enjoy a glass of wine while you do it!
