Whether it be steamier soaks in the tub or longer showers, at home beauty has made a resurgence that will not only help you physically but mentally. The trend of coupling wellness regimens with beauty routines during this time should help ground and centre you amidst the pandemic. At home beauty isn’t adding a new routine into your day but rather mindfully expanding on the current regimen by adding value to that time.

At home wellness : m i n d, b o d y, b e a u t y
involves actively tapping into all 5 senses in a gentle and rewarding way. Sensory control centers you, bringing you back to the present moment. This engages the mind and remaining muscles and systems allowing them to balance in a simplistic, natural and healthy way.
The methodology is a combined approach of aromatherapy, physiotherapy and meditation. At home wellness can be tackled by tapping into the individual senses or by increasing sensory stimulation by interacting with them all at once.

This combined beauty and wellness routine can help boost immune levels by physically introducing natural ingredients such as citrus scents and infused teas . Health is also boosted on a superficial level as the mind stabilizes and releases toxins as it enters the meditative state brought on through sensory stimulation; calming you down and relaxing you. At home wellness is a must do and provides a hassle free approach to socially safe spa days.
