Need A Little Self-Care?

Wellness Ideas To Get You Through

As countries across the globe manage the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s easy for individuals to feel stressed and overwhelmed. Focusing on how to fight the spread of the virus is crucial, but it’s also essential to maintain your peace of mind and find ways to unwind and recharge.

While you can’t escape to blissful spas or relaxing resorts right now, you can still find your peace and enjoy a balanced lifestyle at home thanks to wellness tips and healthy-living recommendations shared by DISCOVERY hotels and resorts around the world. From do-it-yourself spa therapies to restorative yoga sessions and home workouts, here are some self-care ideas we’re excited for you to try.

Create your own spa treatment

Spa at Home From Meritage Collection

If you want to relieve the stress but can’t leave the house, why not create a soothing spa treatment in the comfort of your own bathtub. Head to your pantry, and most likely you’ll find the ingredients you need for a rejuvenating bath using simple household items like Epsom salts, baking soda, almond oil, and coconut oil. Here’s the complete guide​ for this DIY spa experience from Meritage Collection.

Body Scrub From Sugar Beach, A Viceroy Resort

Exfoliating your skin with a body scrub can help boost your skin’s health and appearance because exfoliation helps improve the effectiveness of topical treatments. For example, if you exfoliate your skin before applying a moisturiser, ​ it will be able to penetrate more deeply instead of staying on the surface. A body scrub is also an excellent way to massage your skin, making you feel relaxed and calmer.

While there are plants of store-bought varieties of body scrubs to choose from, it can be fun to create your own using easy-to-find ingredients at home. You can whip up your own body scrub, inspired by Sugar Beach, A Viceroy Resort, by mixing the following ingredients in a bowl:

  • Brown Sugar - 3 tablespoons
  • Honey - 2 tablespoons
  • Coffee - 1 tablespoon
  • Olive oil or coconut oil - 4 to 5 spoons
  • Essential oil - a few drops to add scent
