2. A hand treatment

Apart from lubricating hand cream, you probably do little to take care of your hands. A shame, because your hands also deserve extra love at this time. Scrub them once or use a hand mask. Making your own hand mask? In this article you can read how.

3. Use a facial steamer

Steaming your face is very nice. The steam opens up your pores, leaving your face cleansed and hydrated. Your skin will feel soft and supple. For those who do not yet have it at home, you can score a facial steamer for next to nothing. And it's worth it!

4. An aromatherapy shower

If you don't have a bath, this is an ideal option to relax in the shower. Choose a tablet with your favorite fragrance and sprinkle it with a little water. This will release the heavenly scent and it will feel like the most relaxing shower you've ever had.

5. Apply a hair mask

If you are still doing your aromatherapy shower, you better make the most of it by also applying a hair mask. The choices for masks are endless. Choose something that you want for your hair and let it soak in. Shiny locks on the way!

6. Give yourself a head massage

It has been scientifically proven that head massages reduce stress. Just what you need for extra relaxation.

7. Scrubbing

Applying a scrub is always a good idea. It removes the top layer of your skin and ensures that cell renewal is stimulated. If you plan to lie in the sun, make sure you scrub. The color will penetrate even deeper into your skin.

8. A foot mask

Like your hands, you tend to forget your feet. This time there is no excuse to take extra care of your feet. With a foot mask your feet will feel silky soft again. Paint your toenails immediately and you are summer proof.

9. Invest in a light therapy mask

A mouth full, but a great invention. The light mask consists of LED lights that influence various processes in the skin. It smoothes your skin and prevents pimples and acne. In addition, it also reduces pigment and age spots. It is an investment, but well worth it.

10. Learn a gua sha technique

Gua sha is an ancient Chinese healing technique that uses a stone. Stiff muscles will relax as a result, making it calming. You can compare it to a jade roller, but this is just a stone.
