Men need pampering too, and that’s just a fact. You can say what you want, but it is our firm belief that everyone needs a pamper session to recharge once in a while, especially in the hellscape of a year that is 2020. Depending on where you live and your government’s policies, COVID-19 rules and restrictions differ, but in most places, you can’t go to a spa at the moment. So why not have a spa day at home? It’s easier than you think and can be just as beneficial. You can do as many or as few spa activities as you want but here are a few we’d definitely recommend.
1. Scented Candles
You might think this isn’t important but smells are actually very important and they can make a huge difference in your mood and how you feel. So invest in a nice smelling candle. There’s such a huge variety of scented candles available that you’re bound to find one that you’ll like. For a spa day, it’s best to go for a soothing smell. Something like clean cotton, jasmine, or pine is best for making one feel rejuvenated and relaxed. You can just light a candle and relax with a good book, or you can take the extra step and have a candle burning while you take a shower or bath.
2. Exfoliating Shower
Many people make the mistake of exfoliating in the bath, but that’s not the best way to go. If you do it in the bath, you’re just sitting in a pool of your own dead skin. It’s best to exfoliate in the shower. Take a nice steamy shower, use an exfoliating shower gel or an exfoliating loofah. Make sure to be thorough, but not rough. You don’t want to over-exfoliate. It’s better to use a gentle exfoliator more often, that goes crazy once every couple of months and feels all raw.
