For years, wellness is absolutely trendy, a subsidence of this boom is not in sight, on the contrary. As more and more people are exposed to increasing stress and double burdens in everyday life, it is even more important to indulge in small breaks by means of wellness. But it does not always have to be a costly arrangement in a spa hotel. Wellness can easily be done at home. The cost is low here, the care and pampering all the greater! We give you tips for the perfect spa day in your own home.
Guiding principle of wellness
Just leave the everyday life and the associated worries behind and treat yourself to the luxury of doing something good. The guiding idea of wellness is relaxation. Rest and enjoying time play a big role in wellness treatments, noise and bustle have nothing to look for here. Even if you want to pamper yourself at home with care arrangements, it is important to avoid confusion from the outset. Only then can you really enjoy your wellness program and recharge your batteries.
Being pampered from head to toe without compromise increases the quality of life and can positively promote one's own health. Just turn your bathroom into a SPA temple. What you need? A pleasant light, a sensual fragrance and a well-tempered climate. You can also create atmosphere with colors in the form of towels or curtains.
Relax in the wellness tub
A wonderful introduction to home wellness can be the immersion in your own tub. Because bathing relaxes the entire body musculature.
As the water enters, you can choose the appropriate music for the background. Here's what: Choose the music that's good for you. Whether it's the sound of the sea, birdsong, classical music, jazz or even rock and faster sounds: what you like and what you personally relaxes is allowed.
The right bath additive
So that you can enjoy your personal SPA with all your senses, it is best to choose a bath additive that best suits your mood. To lift the mood, citrus scents are very good. Roses or vanilla smell sensual, while lavender and sandalwood promise a restful sleep.
Many bath products are already enriched with aromatic oils, but you can also purchase a basic bath with matching aromatic oils in the pharmacy, then it is important to comply with the recommended amount of the drops of aromatherapy.
Meerbad and milk bath
For skin blemishes, an anti-inflammatory sea bath may be suitable. Simply add 500 grams of sea salt to the bath water. However, you should not enjoy the sea bath for more than 15 minutes.
Perfect for dry skin is a milk bath, as Cleopatra already did. For this you need:
- 1 liter of whole milk
- 4 tablespoons of honey
- 3 tablespoons of oil (for example almond oil, jojoba oil or sunflower oil)
The milk bath calms irritated skin and smoothes the skin.
Care tips for the face
Also use the wellness day to pamper your face, because a fresh complexion looks healthy and relaxed. For example, clean your face and apply an appropriate facial mask or wrap after exfoliation .
A steam bath can also help open the pores, cleanse the skin and stimulate blood circulation. And that's how easy it is:
- Put a cup of dried herbs in a bowl.
- Add two liters of boiling water.
- Clean your face and hold it over the bowl. Put a towel over your head so that the steam can not escape.
- After a few minutes you can wash your face with warm water.
As an alternative to the steam bath, you can also apply compresses with a herbal mud on your face for ten minutes. Simply boil herbs with boiling water and let them draw for ten minutes before straining them. Use a small towel as a compress that you dip into the herbal mud and then wring it out.
Body care: exfoliation and hair cure
While bathing, you can just close your eyes and indulge in your thoughts or enjoy the time with a book. Then follows the Körperenthaarung and a body scrub. A rubbed massage with a loofah sponge is the ideal extra care for the abdominal area, because it promotes blood circulation and tightens the skin. Meanwhile, a hair cure can act and ensure healthy shine in the hair.
If you do not have a bathtub, you do not have to do without the private SPA. A refreshing alternating shower can promote blood circulation and also provide a great sense of well-being with a beguiling scent of the shower additive.
After the SPA you should definitely have a rest phase. Best wrapped up in a bathrobe, take a comfortable posture on the sofa and drink a herbal or fruit tea for internal warming.
Foot massage and hand mask
At the same time, you can treat yourself to a foot massage. Simply use so-called hedgehog balls with massage nubs. The reflex points on the foot are gently stimulated by circles of the balls and ensure an absolute well-being.
So that everyday-damaged and strained hands have turned into small velvet paws after the wellness, you can now apply a special hand mask and let it work for about 15 minutes. Depending on how much time you plan for your home spa, you can choose either a large program or occasionally in between small breaks.
Refreshment for mind and soul
The wellness program can be completed with light meals such as fruit, vegetables and salad as well as fresh fruit juices. In between, keep calm and off the window and breathe in fresh air. This refreshes the mind and you will feel fit quickly.
After the home-wellness, your battery will be recharged and you will have enough vigor and enthusiasm for new challenges of everyday life.
