Who says you have to damage your liver and skimp on sleep for new year’s eve? If cosying up at home is more your thing rather than partying the night away, we’re right there with you. You can choose to treat yourself to a pampering sesh at home to ring in the new year and you won’t feel even a tad bit guilty about not going clubbing. Bring the party to you by setting up an evening of fun and relaxation with your friends or even by yourself.
Set the mood by lighting up scented candles to fill your space with pleasant aromas. They serve as great evening lighting and also for calming and refreshing your senses. If you are all set on the dim lights department already, you can even opt for aroma diffusers to spread the scent of your favourite essential oils across your room. Don’t forget to hit play on your favourite tunes to kickstart a totally chill evening.
Come on, you know you deserve a relaxing massage. You can make your own blend of carrier and essential oils to massage your body with that will relieve stress and muscle tension. This will also beautify your skin and make it glow like you just got out of the salon. If a full-body massage is not possible, you can try massaging your feet with your oil blend as it has all the pressure points connected to various body parts. A facial massage is also a great idea and you can bring out your sculpting face massage tools like your Gua Sha or jade roller to get the job done. Remember to either use a sheet mask or facial oil before massaging your face with these tools.
Chocolate has many skincare benefits and it is highly indulgent too. Opt for a DIY chocolate face pack to treat your skin to its yummy goodness. Melt six square pieces of dark chocolate and mix it with one tablespoon of honey. Apply this pack to your clean face and let it work its magic for 20 minutes. You can later wash it off with water.
Relax with a luxurious bath. If you have a bathtub, you can opt for a milk and rose petal bath to bathe like a queen and bring your skin to glow. Bath bombs are also super fun and relaxing to try out in the bathtub. If you don’t have access to a bathtub, you can even set up a warm foot soak with essential oils and flowers.
Just because you aren’t going anywhere doesn’t mean you can’t pretty up yourself with some skincare. After cleansing your skin with that luxurious bath, you can go in for another round of skin pampering with a glitter peel-off mask, because no new year’s party is complete without some glitter. Apply a facial mist before the peel-off mask and once you peel it off, opt for a super hydrating illuminating moisturiser, a skincare-infused blush tint, and a hydrating tinted lip balm or lip oil.
A glass of red wine is said to provide your body with antioxidants that help with reducing signs of ageing. Those who favour drinking red wine over other beverages tend to have fewer wrinkles and fine lines, it’s just that good. Now we aren’t advising you to overindulge in red wine as that can easily dehydrate your skin as well, but a glass or two with bae or your friends is perfect to celebrate and ring in the new year while treating your skin to its amazing benefits. If you are a strict no-alcohol person, you can even opt for wine-infused skincare products so that you don’t feel like you’re missing out on its benefits.
With these tips, you are all set to have a rewarding new year’s beauty party at home.
