We preach about self-love but we neglect our body the most. We're always hustling, juggling between phone calls, work, and social media. The screen time increases and the sleep time decreases. And while your body may not show repercussions of exhaustion today, it surely will react in the coming future. But hey, there's still time and you can still pamper your skin, mane and body right, from the comfort of your home. Here's a little guide on the kind of products you must include during your bath and self-care time.
Self Care Comes First: Our Guide To Pampering Your Skin, Mane & Body Right
For The Body
Wake Up With Fragrant Body Washes
As simple as it may seem, taking a shower helps not only cleanse your body but also relaxes your mind. It acts as a stress reliever and helps in relieving body pain. Use a refreshing aloe vera shower gel and body wash from Luxuriate. Make sure to alternate between lukewarm to cold water as it doesn’t open up your pores up too much and yet cleans your skin.

Make Bathing Fun With Bath Salts
Bath salts are great for reducing skin irritation and soothing your skin. And they also make the bathing experience a lot of fun. We love the Lavender Himalayan Pink Rock bath salt by Soulflower. You just have to add 3 spoons of it into warm water, and let it settle it. Soak your feet in it for starters and watch how it heals the body.

Scrub Away The Dirt
The key to flawless skin is exfoliating. Scrub your face and body while you are at home and enjoy your in-house spa session. Make your own scrub at home with coffee powder and coconut oil or just order a face/body scrub and scrub away the dirt.
