 If you’ve been getting by without a beautician during the lockdown period, you will have come to realize that beauty treatments don’t always have to be luxurious. You don’t need to venture out to spas and salons to feel pampered.


Apart from scheduling a teeth whitening appointment, here are a few beauty treatments you can do at home to increase your confidence and get your groove back. 

  1. Oil It Up:

You don’t realize the value of your hair until you start losing it. A beautiful head of hair can give you extra confidence, and a great home care option is to oil your hair regularly. Oil is an ideal leave-in treatment that works to cleanse and moisturize your scalp. 

Apply oil to the entire head right down to the ends and allow the oil to work its magic for an hour or even for the entire day. Oiling your hair does leave your hair greasy for a day or two, so make sure to apply it when you have nowhere to go.

  1. Mask It Up: 

In the comfort of your own home, you can set aside your COVID-19 face mask in favor of a lush beauty mask. Consider adding sheet masks, clay masks, and sleeping masks to your weekly beauty rituals. The best part about using a face mask regularly is that it leaves your skin soft and glowy. 

Remember when you initially use a new product, your skin may react in the form of fine pimples and zits. This is natural and a sign that your skin is detoxifying and cleaning out.

  1. Jade Roll-Up: 

Some call it a jade roller, while others refer to it as their “magic paintbrush.” The idea of the jade roller is to easily roll on the skin, taking care of fine lines and wrinkles. 

There is some preliminary evidence that the jade roller increases collagen production, leaving you with plump and healthier-looking skin. The rollers can be pricey, but they are a good investment as they work wonders in reducing skin inflammation. Keep in mind that the jade roller works more efficiently (and feels more delightful) if you place it in the freezer before use.

  1. Spa It Up: 

Sometimes a little bit of pampering and relaxation at home can do a world of good for your mind, and by extension, your body. The more relaxed you are mentally, the better your outward appearance. Treat yourself to a self-spa date, and boost the relaxing and revitalizing vibes by sipping on a cup of green tea. 

Green tea has many skincare benefits and contains the necessary amino acids, enzymes, and caffeine to improve skin elasticity. The tea bags can also be applied to your eyes to reduce inflammation and make them appear less puffy. 

Over time, regular green tea consumption reduces the signs of aging as well. 

  1. Feet Up: 

Two of the most noticed parts of the body are your feet. Having smooth feet and heels can make you feel as if you are floating on cloud nine. Use a good old-fashioned pumice stone, soak your tired feet in a foot spa, or even try out one of those newly-invented foot exfoliator packs. Better yet, do a self-pedicure while catching up on some television time. 

A healthy mindset, good hair, a brighter-looking face, and great feet are a great way to help you look and feel good during this lockdown – all without having to leave your house.
