Cheap Ways to Pamper Yourself: Everything you Need

When was the last time you pampered yourself? Has school and work kept you busy that you forgot to prioritize your self-care? If so, it’s time to flip the coin! Pampering yourself once in a while is crucial for your physical and mental wellbeing

Luckily, there are plenty of affordable ways to do this without breaking the bank! You will learn about them in this blog post. Dive in!

Take a Bubble Bath

Fill your tub with bubbles (you can use a bubble bath or dish soap), and make sure you charge your phone if you need to order pizza. Candles are optional but encouraged for ambiance. Enjoy the relaxing sound of them fizzing as they pop.

You can light some soothing candles to create an even more calming atmosphere in which you'll find it easier to relax. Keep some lavender oil on hand for when you need that extra boost of relaxation after coming out from under the shower spray— apply a few drops onto your temples, across your chest, or any other place where tension resides.

Use a Teeth Whitening Toothpaste

A toothpaste with the words "tooth whitening" on it will usually be safe to use. However, to avoid side effects, brush twice daily for two weeks and discontinue if you experience discomfort or other symptoms such as swelling of the gums.

If you're considering purchasing a teeth-whitening product from your local drugstore, make sure that it contains at least 20% peroxide. Activated charcoal can also help remove stains from your teeth after brushing by drawing out chemicals in coffee and tea that might stain them over time. This is among the best ways to keep up with high-quality dental care at home.  

Give Yourself a Manicure and Pedicure

You can do this at home by following a few steps. Foremost, cut your nails to the desired length using nail clippers and have fresh, clean water nearby for soaking fingers in between each step. Secondly, gently soak hands in warm soapy water or use lotion on hands before the massage as they will be more sensitive after cutting them. 

Thirdly, move clockwise if the right hand is wet, counterclockwise if the left hand is wet. Be careful not to slide too far back along their nail bed, or you may create small rips that are difficult to repair. Lastly, apply a polish of your choice.

Buy Yourself Flowers

This is the perfect way to treat yourself, and it's not too expensive either! Flowers are available at any grocery store or gas station for a very reasonable price. 

You can buy some fresh flowers, wrap them in cellophane paper (you can use your kitchen trash bag!), and add a bow if you want to dress it up! You'll be amazed how happy these simple gifts make people feel when they receive them. Plus, who doesn't love getting flowers?
