Pamper Me-Monday - 2 - Three Inexpensive Ways To Pamper Yourself At Home

Jessica Castillo-Perez

Posted on December 05 2016

 

I use to be the type of girl who would enjoy pampering my self on a weekly basis. Whether it was a spa day, getting my hair done or mani/pedy, my week would  feel incomplete without it. I found that after sometime, a good portion of my income was going towards my luxurious pampering habits and it had to stop. 2016 was the year that I focused heavily on my spending habits, but I was not ready to give up my pampering routine just yet.

So I slowly came up with creative ways to pamper myself without breaking the bank. Below I share my 3 favorite ways to inexpensively pamper yourself.

1. Prepare a Relaxing Hot Bath

Scrub the tub, light some candles, turn on your incense and get ready to indulge in a relaxing hot bath. Add your favorite essential oils, bath bombs or bubbles. Meditate for a few minutes and proceed to exfoliate your skin with your favorite scrub. Ive recently have been obsessed with SupiGlow tea and coffee scrubs which are naturally handcrafted with the highest quality herbs, bath salts, milk and oils. They are great from penetrating top layers of your skin and alleviate stress, body aches and restore moisture. To add to my experience, i sprinkle some rose petals and listen to some soft jazz music (my favorite album is Smooth Jazz All Starts Renditions of Erykah Badu). Does this sound relaxing or no?

 

2. Its Time To Use Your Polish (Call A Friend If You Have To)

I know how fabulous it feels to come out of the nail salon with a fresh set of painted nails, but imagine getting the same results for half of the price and without having to wait in line. So grab your favorite nail polish (i know you have a couple laying around at home), and color away. I like to first clip my nails, file to my desired shape, remove any dirt underneath the nails and scrub with my favorite DIY Sugar Scrub . Add 2-3 layers of polish and finish with a quick dry top coat. Its as easy as 1,2,3

 

 

 3. DIY At Home Facial

This is by far my favorite way to pamper. Grab a glass of your favorite wine (or sparkling water) and lets get started. I first grab my favorite pink robe, soft pink slippers and tie my hair in a bun. I begin cleansing my face to remove makeup and unwanted oils. With a damp cotton apply a non-alcoholic toner. I then proceed to steam my face by damping a small towel with hot water (optional: add essential oils to water. my favorite is lavender) carefully place on your face and allow 5-10 minutes for skin to soften and open up pores. Next, its time to use your favorite face mask. Im in love with Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay. Their slogan is no joke, it literally makes you feel like your face is pulsating (like a volcanic experience, don't be afraid this means its working). Rinse thoroughly with warm water and finish with your favorite moisturizer.

 See, that was not so bad. I hope you have enjoyed this weeks Pamper Me-Monday. Id like to know, what ways are you planning to pamper yourself this week? Leave your thoughts in the comment section of this post.

 

Happy pampering

<3 Jess
