What is the one thing we all need after a long, tiring week? A movie marathon and some TLC to pamper ourselves rotten, that’s what! But then, in an instant, pops up a thought bubble flashing our bank balance, and bam, we drop the idea without a second thought. Well, not anymore. Because your friends at BeBe have figured out five ways, you can pamper yourself this weekend without breaking the bank. Excited? Scroll on!
Sheet masks FTW
Sheet masks are the simplest way to pamper yourself, and they aren’t too heavy on your wallets either - win, win! So, treat your skin with a good sheet mask like the Pond’s Hydrating Sheet Mask With Vitamin B3 And 100% Natural Coconut Water this weekend. This mask is dermatologically tested and has no alcohol or parabens in it. The coconut water adds dewy radiance to your face, while the vitamins and serum work to purify and nourish your skin. So, just cleanse, put on the mask for 15 minutes and say hello to glowy skin!
Massage face with a spoon
Forget jade rollers or Gua Sha; your spoon is enough of a tool to help you massage your face. It helps keep your skin taut, de-puffs your face, and reduces wrinkles and signs of ageing. You’d need two spoons, some ice cubes and oil like almond or olive oil. Start by massaging your face with the oil; follow this by massaging the spoon against the jawline and move it towards your cheek in an upward motion. Dip the spoons in ice and place them against closed eyes to reduce puffiness. And that’s it; an easy, inexpensive massage to help your skin relax.
Turn to rosewater ice cubes for glowing skin
Craving for an instant glow for your skin? Rose ice cubes are just what you need! All you need to do is mix equal amounts of concentrated rose water with normal water and put them in an ice cube tray. Just take out an ice cube and rub it around your face and you'll notice an instant softness and glow on your face. These cubes help tighten your pores and hydrate your skin while reducing puffiness.
Switch to homemade body scrub
DIYs are always a good idea, especially when you want to pamper yourself without spending moolah! For us, nothing screams pampering like a coffee body scrub. Besides coffee being an excellent exfoliator, this scrub is also easy to make. You’d need half a cup of ground coffee, half a cup of brown sugar and half a cup of coconut oil. Mix them all together and use them as a body scrub. Coffee helps remove dead skin cells and boosts blood circulation to give you glowing, soft skin.
Pamper your tresses with a DIY hair mask
Now, don’t ignore your hair while you are on the road to self-pampering! A hair mask is the best way to give your hair that added TLC. Don’t have a hair mask handy? Fret not; you can double up your conditioner as a hair mask. Apply a smoothing conditioner like the TRESemmé Keratin Smooth With Argan Oil Conditioner on damp hair and leave it on for 30-40 minutes. Rinse your hair with cold water and enjoy your soft and smooth salon-like hair without burning a hole in your pocket. The keratin and argan oil in this conditioner helps control frizz and make it manageable, smoother and shinier!
