Over the course of the last twelve months, we have all been limited in our options when it comes to getting the beauty treatments we love. Hair stylists have closed, the high street has been shuttered, and even the dentist has advised that people avoid making appointments unless it’s absolutely urgent. So, we’ve all learned to be patient, to make do with the means and methods we have at our fingertips to keep looking our best and staying positive. But staying home doesn’t mean that you can’t look your best.
While the world is slowly reopening after the pandemic, there’s still plenty of ways to enhance your look at home and save time and effort. Whether you’re still nervous about the virus or just want to save money, it’s easy to take care of your appearance at home. Check out these innovative ways to look your best without leaving the house.
Give Your Glasses A Makeover
Are you sick and tired of the same old frames? When we’re staring at ourselves on work video calls for hours at end five days a week before hopping on a catch-up with our friends with a glass of wine at the weekend, of course you’re going to want to change up the little things, starting with your glasses. And there’s no reason to let the fact that you don’t want to head to the optician hold you back, either. There are plenty of options available for mail-order test frames, so you can try a few different looks on for size and see which one takes your fancy.
Has your skin been feeling the effects of sitting indoors with the heating on? Do you wish you could scrub away the feeling of the winter sludge and face the spring fresh faced? Have you been dying for a good exfoliating treatment? Well, what are you waiting for? You don’t need to go to an actual spa to get a spa treatment. A facial scrub brush can run from £30 up to significantly more expensive products, and you can enjoy everything from a deep pore scrub to a gentler cleansing treatment. When we don’t feel like our skin is looking its best, it can leave us feeling pretty miserable. So, be kind to your skin and be kind to yourself.
Enjoy A Brighter Smile With At Home Dental Treatments
For most of us, a trip to the dentist isn’t complete without a nice whitening treatment to make sure that we leave feeling fresh and with our teeth looking sparkling. However, a professional clean or a whitening does not really count as an absolutely essential reason to pay a visit to the dentist right now, so many of us have been sitting at home starting to get pretty down about the state of our smile. Well, there’s absolutely no reason not to put your best grin on when we start to spend a bit more time outside this spring, as there are plenty of options available at home.
One of the easiest options to help you get straight teeth at home is clear braces. Clear braces can be worn overnight, so you can brighten your smile as you sleep. If you’re interested in learning more about clear braces, then check out this guide to everything you should know about clear braces. You’ll find all the information you need to make an informed choice and decide if these innovative solutions are right for you and your smile.
Make Bath Time Something Special
There really cannot be enough said for the restorative powers of a good, long soak in the tub. In an ideal world, this would be taking place at an elegant spa, or in the luxurious hotel you’ve booked for your weekend getaway. However, times being such as they are, you may have to take some bold steps towards turning your bathroom tub into your own escape from the outside world. First of all, make sure that everyone else in the house knows that this is your time to relax. Whether it’s housemates, family members or a pet that always picks the worst time to demand your attention, they all need to keep out until you’re relaxed.
Now is also the time for you to up your game when it comes to your bath products. This time, a bath bomb isn’t going to cut it. Treat yourself to some mineral infusions for a soak that will both soothe and reinvigorate your skin. Make sure that you have the right lighting to make things properly relaxing (no bright overhead bulbs here) and queue up the perfect playlist to induce that blissful state of calm. We all need time to ourselves right now, and it’s important to make it count.
