The Best Ways to Pamper Yourself While in Lockdown
After all we have endured over the past year, ending up back in quarantine lockdown is disheartening. Being unable to go out for food, meet up with friends, or attend any kind of social event feels restrictive and can make a difficult situation even worse. The best thing you can do while waiting for pandemic restrictions to ease is take care of yourself, both physically and mentally. Lockdown is a good opportunity to find ways to pamper yourself, and we have come up with a few good ways to do so.
Become a Mixologist
Sometimes we all need a good stiff drink at the end of a long week, and even though bars and pubs are closed that doesn’t mean you’re out of luck. Take advantage of lockdown to embrace your inner mixologist and learn how to mix the gin and tonic beverages you love or have always wanted to try. You’ll need the basics for this of course, but why not take it up a notch by trying out some of The Cure Tonics’ syrups? Made with quality botanicals and containing fresh, ripe flavours, these syrups pair wonderfully with gin but function just as well with soda water. For garnishes, consider their juniper berries and cardamon pods to elevate your mixology to another level.
Shop Online for Accessories
A lot of people are using retail therapy as a way to take the edge off of lockdown, and there is plenty out there to shop for! Accessories are a popular online choice, whether you’re looking for jewellery, tie clips, cufflinks, purses, wallets, or anything else you might need. If you are in the market for some unique, colourful accessories, consider Dressed For Sunday’s catalogue. Their earrings, brooches, necklaces, and cuff links all exude a playful, timeless charm and are certain to brighten up any outfit for your zoom meeting.
If your aesthetic is more into natural, unsculpted elegance, Spellthief n Co is worth checking out. Their natural tourmaline jewellery is entirely unique and no two pieces are the same. The tourmaline crystals boast soft ombre colours with wonderful clarity and are set in 14k handmade gold prongs. These pieces would make a lovely addition to any collection.
Have a Spa Day (or Several)
Having a luxurious spa day is considered peak relaxation for many people, and fortunately you can replicate the experience from the comfort of your own home even while in lockdown. There are plenty of great local all-natural skin care and beauty brands out there to choose from, such as The Purity Project. Their mindful, minimalistic skin care line has everything you need to pamper your face and body and leave you feeling relaxed and fresh.
Indulging in soaps made from quality, natural materials is another way to replicate a spa experience. Mei & Co.’s handmade luxury soaps are deliciously fragrant and gentle on the skin and even better, are chemical free. Also featuring handmade soaps is Soaps By Heather, whose line of all natural products also features lotion bars, shampoo bars, and face soaps.
Indulge and Spoil Yourself During Lockdown
All we can do is wait until the quarantine restrictions are lifted, so why not make the most of that time and spoil yourself? Whether it’s retail therapy, skin care and beauty regimes, or learning how to make the best drinks, take the time to pamper yourself in ways that are unique to you!
