With constant news updates, ever changing restrictions and a new normal taking over for the last year, it’s more important than ever to make time to look after yourself.
We’ve all had to get a bit creative while spas and salons have been closed, so we’re sharing some of our favourite ways to pamper yourself at home with help from our fantastic Bridges retailers.
Lush, Big Blue Bath Bomb
Nothing beats a lengthy soak in the tub, especially when you add an indulgent bath bomb. Big Blue is full of vitamins and minerals, skin-softening ingredients and calming aromas to help you feel like a new person when you step back out.
The Works, Art Therapy Colouring Book & Scribblicious Coloured Pens Bundle
Colouring has been linked to reducing stress and anxiety and helping your brain focus better and there are lots of designs and images to choose from. Light a candle, put on some relaxing music, grab your book, and feel your worries floating away.
Boots, Rituals The Ritual of Samurai Body Moisturiser 250ml
We may be moving away from the colder weather and into spring but that’s no excuse to neglect your skin. Invest in a good moisturiser to keep your skin feeling fresh and smelling amazing too.
New Look, Curves White Heart Be Kind Logo Jogger Pyjama Set
Pulling on a new pair of pyjamas feels almost as good as getting into clean sheets, so there’s no better time than the present to treat yourself. Bonus points if you can find a pair with an inspirational slogan on the front.
New Look, DOIY Burgundy 30 Day Yoga Challenge
Yoga has had a bit of a resurgence over the last year because it’s so easy to do at home – and it’s never too late to take up a new hobby. Learn some new moves with this handy 30 day challenge and you’ll be feeling better in no time.
Superdrug, Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Scented Hand Cream
Increased hand washing and sanitising can wreak havoc on your hands, especially during the colder weather, so treat yourself to a moisturising hand cream to keep them feeling soft and smooth.
Waterstones, 21st Century Yokel
While fast paced thrillers can be fun, it’s also important to take a step back and pick up a light hearted read every now and again. Packed full of folklore, nature and personal anecdotes, 21st Century Yokel is the perfect choice for a quiet evening in.
The Body Shop, Tea Tree Anti-Imperfection Night Mask
Time to put on a different kind of face mask to the one we’ve grown so used to over the last twelve months. Smooth the cooling gel onto your skin before bed and wake up to find your skin feeling purified and looking fantastic.
Next, Navy Modern Heritage Moccasin Slippers
Nightwear may be designed for comfort, but there’s no reason you shouldn’t look great too. With a check trim, faux-fur lining and memory foam insoles to cushion your feet, these slippers look like the height of luxury and will make it feel like you’re walking on air too.
Boots, Sanctuary Spa Luxury Oud Candle
Whether you’re curling up on the sofa with a good film or planning a spa night at home, why not treat yourself to a new candle? This one combines a floral oud fragrance with a decadent woody, musky and sweet amber base to fill your home with gorgeous scents.
