HAVE A SPA AT HOME WITH ELKETTE
Thursday 09 April 2020
Who doesn’t love a spa day? While an indulgent full-body massage might not be possible, here are a few ways Elkette ensures some relaxation and recovery time by re-creating the spa experience at home.
Hang a small branch from your shower head and run the water hot to simulate a steam room.
Flavoured water feels like a luxury but it couldn’t be easier to make. Try a combination like strawberry and cucumber. Just cut a handful of slices of each fruit, add them to a pitcher of water and refrigerate for a few hours to infuse.
Light some candles and sink in. Or jump in the shower and do a full body scrub. For an easy mix, combine 1 cup each of brown sugar, raw oatmeal and olive oil. Apply on dry skin while standing in the shower (to avoid a mess) and then rinse off.
These are easy to do with the natural remedies and ingredients that we have at home or can get from the supermarket!
Working in front of the computer all day makes your eyes tired. Cucumber slices are great for reducing swelling, but you can also use tea bags. Chamomile is a natural anti-inflammatory and will ease redness and puffiness. Steep in just-boiled water for a few minutes, cool in the fridge and then place one bag over each eye for 15 minutes.
