Between work, kids, carpools, daily errands, and life in general, it can be hard to escape busy schedules and take time out for yourself. Most of us put the needs of our family and loved ones in front of our own, but draw a blank recalling the last time we treated ourselves. If you are a busy gal like me, chances are you also struggle to find time to pamper yourself on a regular basis. Not only does time pose an issue, but finding the funds to support a weekly or monthly salon/spa visit proves challenging. What’s a girl gotta do?
Since weekdays are crazy for me, I try to keep aside about 20-30 minutes for some much needed extra me-time on the weekends (at least every other weekend!) and treat my body to the care it needs. Here’s how I add a splash of indulgence to my at-home pampering session…
First off, a relaxing hot bath with a fragrant bath bomb or calming essential oils works wonders for settling my nerves! Soaking in the tub for even just 10-15 minutes literally melts away the stress. I also like to burn my favorite candle to get a spa like feel!
After tub time, it’s time to take care of the areas that work overtime everyday, like my feet! I use Amopé™ Pedi Perfect Wet & Dry Rechargeable Foot File to exfoliate rough, dry skin and get rid of those icky thick calluses. With its specially designed two-speed abrasive roller head for use on wet or dry skin, Amopé is way more convenient to use than a pumice stone or foot file and gets the job done quickly and effortlessly! It is cordless and completely waterproof, so I can easily use it even before I step out of the tub! Seriously, it’s kinda like having a professional pedicurist at your beck and call!
After smoothing out all the rough patches, I quickly do my toe nails by clipping, pushing cuticles and filing to shape. Next, I use a hydrating body lotion to moisturize all over and make sure to slather it on those feetsies as well to keep them nicely hydrated and smooth looking! And now that sandal season is almost here, painting my nails would be the perfect finishing touch! When I am done, ideally I would like to lounge on the couch all day reading a good book or binging on Netflix but needless to say, that’s a luxury I can only dream of these days!
There you have it! While it may seem pretty simple, a little dose of self-pampering goes a long way and makes me feel confident & ready to face the day! When’s the last time you treated yourself to an at-home pedicure?
