Want a relaxing day of pampering, but don't want to spend a fortune on massage treatments? You can give yourself a great treatment at home by washing your face, deep conditioning your hair, taking a relaxing bath, and doing your nails.
Part 1 of 4: Skin and Hair
Wash your face. Use a gentle cleanser that is designed for your skin type (e.g. oatmeal- or honey-based soap). Afterward, use a nice toner. Then, moisturize with a non-scented, oil-free moisturizer.
Deep condition your hair. Apply conditioner to dry hair, coating it thoroughly (out of concern for the environment, avoid products containing palm oil). Wait a few minutes. If your hair is in desperate need of conditioning, it will soak up the conditioner quickly, and you should re-apply. Repeat this process until your hair is saturated with conditioner. In most cases, three applications will do the trick. Next, place the shower cap over your hair. Then use a blow dryer to heat your hair for about 15 minutes. To avoid damaging your hair, do not use the highest heat setting; use medium or low heat. Once you have entirely warmed the roots, tips, and middle of your hair, remove your cap.
Take a shower. Shampoo and condition your hair. Use a scented body wash unless you have sensitive skin, it might be irritated by the scented wash (Bath & Body Works is a good brand for body wash) to make your skin feel soft and renewed. Scrub your skin with a loofah to exfoliate.
Take a bath. Fill up your tub with warm water (make sure that it's not too hot, and not too cold) and remember to keep in mind that the water will cool down after you've been in the bath for a while, so adjust the temperature of the water accordingly. Then, add some soothing, scented bubble bath to the water, or maybe some essential oils. For an extra massage touch, you could get some flowers and let them float on top of the water. Some stores sell fake floating flowers that smell amazing. You could also light some aromatherapy (or regular) candles and place them in your bathroom and around the bathtub for extra relaxation. As a safer alternative, you could also use battery-operated candles, which flicker softly without a flame. Get in with your hair up in a bun or ponytail. Lay your head down and rest your neck on a comfy bath pillow. Listen to some music while you're there, if you like. Stay in for around 30 minutes. Then get out and put on a soft bathrobe and comfortable slippers. Once you're out, spray yourself with a quick mist of rosewater. It will open your pores and leave you smelling like a rose! Rosewater is extremely refreshing and can be mixed with witch hazel for a natural toner.
You can also take a sitz bath if you don't/can't lie down in a tub. That is when you fill your bath with warm water and sit in there for 5-10 minutes without being fully submerged. It's a good alternative to a full bath, and excellent for abdominal cramps.
