At-Home Laser Hair Removal

If you want to get rid of your unwanted hair permanently or as close as possible to achieving that, then a laser hair removal device may be the right solution for you!

Not long ago, removing hair can only be done in clinics and should be done by professionals. Aside from spending a lot of time going to the clinic, you also need to spend more just to make sure that the excess hair will be gone.

Fortunately, thanks to the laser hair removal device, it becomes easier for you to do it in the comfort of your home. These new devices help target specific areas where excess hair growth such as the bikini area, legs, or armpits. It helps in removing hair and ensures that your skin will be smooth and hair-less longer.

Perform facial massages

Facial rollers are one of those tools that are useful when pampering your facial skin. These rollers help in draining fluids from your face and prevent water retention, thus avoid making your face looked puffy.

But if you don’t have one yet, then do it traditionally by using your hands. Simply use your favorite cleansers or oil then massage the product on your face for about a minute. This technique will help improve blood circulation on your face and can also provide a relaxing massage at the same time.

Deep condition your hair

Many women often forget to take care of their hair especially the scalp. If you are one who frequently styles your hair or keeps it tied in a bun, your hair can feel dry, brittle, and dull. If that’s the case, then deep conditioning your hair is the way to go!

Deep conditioning helps in restoring hair moisture, strengthens your hair, and prevents further damage caused by frequent hair styling, chemicals, and even the environment.

There are different ways to do deep conditioning. One way is to apply your chosen deep conditioner, like hair masks, and leave it for about 10 to 30 minutes, depending on your hair’s condition. This will allow the product to penetrate deep into your scalp and infuse into the hair cuticles.

Once done, rinse and you are all set! Additionally, you may also create your own deep conditioner with the use of different natural ingredients such as eggs, mayonnaise, yogurt and honey, or banana and avocado.

Give yourself a mani-pedi

Amazingly, doing your own manicure and pedicure can be relaxing and provide many benefits for the body. Aside from making your nails look pretty, it can help in making your nails strong and healthy.

You don’t have to be a professional just to have a mani-pedi at home. Just have all the basic tools needed such as nail clippers and nail file. When giving yourself a manicure and pedicure, place your nails in a warm bowl of water to soften your skin and clean up your cuticles. Make sure to clip the tips of your nails and file down all sharp edges to avoid scratching your skin.

Once your nails are shaped and cleaned, buff them, and moisturise them with lotion. Then you can apply your favourite nail colour as finishing touches.

Make your own luxury bath

Soaking yourself in a nice, warm, and relaxing bath is the best way to achieve a perfect pamper day. After a stressful and tiring work week, reward yourself with a calming bath to relax those stiff muscles and tired minds.

To create your own bath, choose the right bath bomb or bubble bath product for your skin. Remember some bubble baths can be harmful to you especially if you have sensitive skin, so ensure that it is the right one for you.

Set up the mood in your bathroom with the right lighting and music and of course, the right water temperature. Be sure that it is not too cold or too hot because this will just cut your relaxation time short.

Throw in your bubble bath product and soak in the relaxing tub. This is the perfect way to restore energy and give yourself the reward that your body needs after a long and hard week’s activities.
