In these hectic, chaotic times, all of us deserve some time to ourselves! What with all the deadlines, busy schedules, late nights and tons of workload, a relaxing self care day every now and then becomes an essential. Many of us may have headed straight to beauty parlours to get that uninterrupted time and the best methods for skincare. However, the on-going pandemic has forced us to stay at home as salons are no longer safe. Does this mean that effective relaxation and skincare is not possible anymore? Not at all!
Salon-quality facials and spas have been made super simple to DIY at home as well! To call something an at-home facial means that we go the extra mile and follow a procedure that is deeper and more focused than the usual. This is the treat you deserve to give yourself and destress every once in a while.
