We have a long weekend coming up! While some people would prefer to go on a road trip, others would prefer to have a staycation instead. If this sounds like you, here are some things you can do at home to pamper yourself.
1.) Set up a good ambiance.
Aside from tidying up your room or apartment, you can use scented candles and diffusers to make your surroundings smell great. A pleasing scent can instantly calm you down or make you feel more at home.
Diptyque Scented Candle (Php 3,250)
Try using luxury scented candles from legendary French perfumer Diptyque. Berries, Wood Fire, Fig Tree, and Roses are among their best sellers.
2.) Moisturize your body
Picture this: your room smells good, your favorite music is playing, and your skin in silky smooth! Your skin is your body’s largest organ, so it only makes sense to take care of it.

The sweet citrus floral aromas of orange blossom and neroli come together to create a sophisticated yet zesty spa experience in the comfort of your own home. The set contains a body cleanser, cream wash, and a hand & body lotion.
Neal’s Yard Remedies Chamomile Roman Essential Oil (Php 1,550)
You can also try Neal’s Yard’s body oils. Body oils, in spite of their names, are not greasy and are easily soaked up by the skin. Our range of body oils are made with lightweight, essential oils that are quick-absorbing and rich leaving your skin soft and smooth without that sticky after-feel.
You can also have lots of scents to choose from! Just to name a few, they have chamomile, neroli, peppermint, and tea tree.
3.) Detoxify your hair
You probably shampoo, condition, and style your hair regularly. These add buildup in your hair and scalp.
Detoxify your hair using the Phytodess Rinse-Off Clay Bath for Multi-Stressed Scalp.

Try this airy, cloud-like cream, powered by Hydrogen, the smallest molecule in the universe. H2 Energy Complex rapidly penetrates the surface layers of the skin with a boost of hydrating vitality so that your skin looks re-energized and radiant.

Try the Cath Kidston Blossom Birds Assorted Lip Balm (Php 995). The packaging is absolutely adorable! More importantly, they are designed to condition and protect against dryness. They also smell like white clover and matcha tea.

Start off by using Deborah Lippmann Cuticle LAB, a four-piece, cuticle set with a professional step-by-step guide on the proper treatment and care of nail cuticles.
