Most corporate desk and client facing jobs requires one to travel through traffic, push through crowds and all the while look well together on a daily basis. (If you live close to work/ client and end up skipping this daily drama, then good for you!)
Then there’s the strain of staring at a computer all day, all the while making one crave for some rest and relaxation at the end of a long day!
You know you need some pampering when the splash of cool water on your face gives you the greatest sense of relief.
This is where I really cash in on the pampering over my weekend!
Although I’m a big believer in healing your body from the inside nthrough what you consume, there’s also a huge sense of relaxation in knowing you can use those consumable ingredients to pamper yourself on the outside.
Here is one of my favourite pampering routines:
1. The total body scrub
All you need is some coconut oil and a loofah. Apply the oil and give yourself a massage and throughout scrub down! Working the loofah in circular motions is best! This helps with circulation and removal of dead skin cells.
My hair is naturally dry and so I use curd/Greek yogurt and a big teaspoon of honey. Mixed up well and applied on my hair! This hair mask smells lovely, provides those natural moisturising nutrients of vitamin D5 & B and helps repair damage, giving your locks the good loving it deserves!
3. The face mask
I am currently living in a cold weather country which makes my skin dry quite often. So back to the curd and honey for this one as well!
Curd mixed with a little honey, tumeric and cinnamon.
This magic mask has worked well for me in the past and I stand by it.
If you have oily skin, add half a teaspoon of chickpea flour to the mix.
