Here are five essentials for a successful mini staycation, so check them out and enjoy!
Make a fabulous DIY hair mask and enjoy the ultimate spa experience
Let your pampering routine start with your hair, which is highly likely to need extra care after a long and exhausting week at work.Homemade DIY hair masks are never a bad choice simply because they’re quite effective yet so affordable. Basically, you can make them from scratch using the ingredients you already have in your kitchen, and the fact is that they can’t be any easier to craft. So, if your tresses are a bit damaged, you’ll need just one tablespoon of coconut oil mixed with one tablespoon of honey. Make sure you heat up the mixture until melted, then apply to your hair, and let it sit for 15-20 minutes. Rinse it off with lukewarm water and voila – you’ll see how smooth and silky your hair will be once it’s dry.
Get your nails done like a true pro
Another important step when it comes to your mini staycation is your manicure, so don’t skip it at any cost. Contrary to popular belief, you really don’t have to visit a renowned nail salon for a mani or pedi –you can do it all by yourself, in the comfort of your own home. You should start by shaping your nails with a heavy grit nail file, and then re-sand them with the lightest grit (those 3-sided buffing files will be more than fine). Then soak your nails in warm water in order for cuticles to become softer, and press them back with an orangewood stick. When that’s done, use the nippers to cut off any free hanging skin you pushed away with the stick and you’re ready to apply the base coat. The actual polish comes next, and then a top coat and your nails are all done!
Enjoy a long, hot bath
We’re almost 100% positive that a long, hot bath is your favorite part after an exhausting day at work, and we completely understand that. There really isn’t anything more relaxing and pampering than such a bath, which is exactly why you should go for it. First of all, make sure your bathtub is as clean as a whistle. If it is, fill it up with lukewarm to hot water, and add your favorite body wash to it. Relaxing scents like lavender are probably the best idea, as they can help you unwind even more. Apart from that, you can also get those fizzy bath bombs and transform your regular pampering experience into a fabulous one.
Stick to your favorite skincare products that work
Your skincare routine is definitely one of the most essential steps you should take every single day, and it’s important when it comes to your mini staycation as well. Sticking to a set of quality skincare products you’ve been using for some time now is what you should always do, simply because your skin got used to them. This means that any potential skin issues, like breakouts, redness, and blemishes will be kept at bay, as you’ll use the products that work for you. Don’t forget to apply a scrub, cleanser, toner, and moisturizer appropriate for your skin type, as well as any kind of face oil that’ll additionally pamper your skin and make it look and feel soft and rejuvenated.
Munch on some delicious yet healthy comfort foods
Yes, we know that pizza is probably the first thing that comes to your mind when someone mentions comfort foods, but trust us – it can bring you more harm than good. However, everyone knows that staycation days are basically cheat days, but you’ll have to agree that staying healthy should be your top priority. So, instead of those infamous comfort foods, you should stick to healthy fruits like strawberries, pineapples, and mangoes. Even dark chocolate is allowed as long as you don’t go overboard with it. Remember that everything in moderation is okay, and you’ll be more than fine!
As you can see, there are so many things you can do to have a fabulous mini staycation, without even having to leave your home. Just be sure to stick to our tips, and you’ll enjoy the most amazing pampering experience ever!
