How are you holding up? I hope you are enjoying the marathon and that you can feel that God is changing your world around.
Spa moment! Yes, time for you! You can make today's task extremely easy by going to a Spa, but I understand if you are not able to plan trip like this anytime soon. Maybe you are busy with school, work, kids, the Mister, church or all of them. So I would like to encourage you!
Do you know these rare moments were you have all the time to take a hot bath/shower? Well to succeed in today's task you do need to find a bit of time somewhere. If you have a bath; lid some candles, make yourself a nice cup/glass of something, prepare your bath (a nice bath gel etc.) and play your favorite music. Wash your face and apply a mask, step into your bath and enjoy your Spa moment!
For all the ladies who only have a shower; Wash your face and apply a mask (first thing you do as it needs time to its work), find all your favorite shower attributes (like shower gel, scrub gloves, scrub - or make one yourself, Google it! - maybe even a shower mud etc) decide on forehand if you are going to wash your hair (if yes apply a mask to your hair). Take time to scrub your whole body, enjoy your Spa moment!
Use a nice soft towel (may a warm one for the Dutchies - place it over the heater or put it in the dryer) to dry yourself and apply a nice bodylotion - with care all over your body.
This is an instant-Spa moment and you will feel super relaxed after ;-)
You can also create a spa moment for specific body areas:
- Feet: fill a small basin with lukewarm water and add some foot bath gel (or a nice smelling shower gel). Let your feet soak for 10 minutes, now scrub your feet very thorough - using specific products that are made for it are very effective - soak them for another 5 minutes, dry them completely and apply a foot cream.
- Hands: Wash your hands and apply a bit of scrub - once again using specific products is highly recommended - wash it off, dry your hands and apply a hand cream. You can combine this with painting your nails.
- Face: Wash your face - or use your favorite product to remove all the make up from your face - fill a bowl with boiling water, drape a towel over your head and steam your face for 5 - 10 minutes, scrub your face or use a peeling, wash it off and dry, apply a mask (follow the instructions on the package) rinse/tissue it off and apply a day/night cream.
If you don't have all the specific products, use Google for creating your beauty products. You can use honey, yogurt and so many other food products as beauty products! There is no excuses lady!
