There are many easy at-home methods to reduce anxiety and provide a spa-like experience which will bring relaxation and a sense of relief. Aromatherapy, self-massage, and natural remedies are some simple ways to relax and enjoy your time at home. The team at Spa Toccare and Immersion Spa at Borgata have come up with several ways to bring calm and serenity to your at-home routines during this time of social distancing.
Exfoliate with an essential oil blend: Exfoliating the skin two to three times a week helps to remove dead skin cells and stimulate new cell growth. Select a scrub an essential oil blend that relieves tension, like eucalyptus or lavender. Follow with a deeply hydrating moisturizer to protect your new skin from getting dry.
Use cool cucumbers under eyes: Place cold cucumbers on your eyes, relax, and enjoy the refresh. Cucumbers contain vitamin K. Vitamin K re-hydrates tired skin and eliminates under eye bags and dark circles.
Re-set with simple apple cider vinegar: Mix a teaspoon or two with honey and water and drink. You’ll be well on your way to feeling energized and refreshed.
Easy headache relief with herbal ointment: Massage a little all-herbal ointment (like Tiger Balm) on the back of your neck and bit more on your temples and say sayonara, headache. This simple aromatherapy self-massage is perfect for your time at home.
Yoga, Meditation, and Breathing: We carry stress in our bodies in different ways. Yoga, meditation and stretching can help calm your mind, body and spirit. Specific stretching techniques, compressions and breathing exercises help create a sense of peace and calm. Burn a relaxing candle while you practice.
