Here’s a gentle reminder: Don’t let thoughts of Monday steal your Sunday!
Sunday is the most relaxing day of the week, and I’m sure you’d agree with us. This makes it just the ideal day to indulge in some self-pampering sessions. Self-care Sunday is all about hitting the reset button before you jump into an all-new week.
You can probably get stuck between meetings, lectures or just life in general, all through the week. Self-care takes a backseat amidst our busy schedules. And that’s when Sunday comes to the rescue.
Here are 4 ways to pamper yourself.
#01: Mani time
Doing your own manicure is oh-so-satisfying. If you’re someone who loves flaunting freshly painted nails every week, then Sundays are the best time to add some glam to your nails. You can either go with just a single colour *one that defines your mood at that very moment* or pick a set of five different pastel colours to create a chic gradient effect.
For something fun and quirky, pick shades from the Lakmé Color Crush Nail Art collection. If you want to keep it vibrant with pop colours, then pick shades from the Lakmé 9 To 5 Primer + Gloss Nail Color collection.
#02: Say yes to scrubbing
Listen up, lazy girls! If you haven’t got onto exfoliating your skin even once through the entire week, then Sundays can be the perfect time to indulge in some facial and body scrubbing. Exfoliating can help slough off dead skin cells and reveal a healthier glow.
We suggest you get your hands on the St. Ives Gentle Smoothing Oatmeal Scrub & Mask which is infused with a nourishing mix of honey and oatmeal. These skin-loving ingredients can prove to be a delicious delight for your skin.
You can also pamper your skin with dry body brushing, an easy-peasy way to get rid of pores, reduce acne, breakouts and cellulite.
#03: Happy masking
Treat your facial skin with DIY recipes using easily available ingredients from your kitchen. Alternatively, you can jump onto the sheet-masking bandwagon. All you need to do is slap on a sheet mask on cleansed skin, leave it on for a few minutes and then wash your face with water.
Masking at least once a week, if not more, can help you get rid of all the contaminants and bacteria that get accumulated on the surface of your skin, thanks to pollution, heat, dust and grime.
#04: Nourish your hair
While you care for your skin and face, don’t forget to pamper your tresses. Your hair undergoes a lot of trauma all through the week. While it is exposed to the sun on a daily basis, constant use of heat-styling tools such as straighteners and curling irons simply add to your woes. All of this results in dry, brittle, dehydrated and damaged mane.
It is, therefore, important to treat your locks with either natural oil masks or get your hands on the TIGI Bed Head Urban Antidotes Level 3 Resurrection Treatment Mask for healthier, stronger strands.
