Treat Yourself This Valentine’s Day and Beyond
Advice From Simone Thomas Hair Salon & Wellness Clinic
February is traditionally the month that we celebrate love and romance, taking time to show the special people in our life how much we care.
Whatever your plans are this Valentine’s – or Galentine’s – Day, at Simone Thomas Salon in Bournemouth we think it’s just as important to show yourself with the same kind of love and kindness that you offer to others.
After a difficult couple of years, self-care is vitally important for us all. By looking after ourselves, we will have the capacity to spread the love to those around us and care for our environment too.
Here are some of our favourite self-care ideas for Valentine’s Day and all year round too.
Self Care Tips For Valentine's Day
Take Time For Yourself
Take time to slow down, perhaps go for a walk and appreciate the natural beauty of your local area, or just sit and read a book, rather than staring at a screen.
We can all tend to worry, but do try to live in the present and practice mindfulness techniques – there’s plenty of advice online, including on our Wellbeing Facebook page.
Try A Home Spa
Turn off your phone, put on some soothing music and dim the lights. Burn a candle or use some oils with relaxing scents and make sure you have some fluffy towels to hand as well as some healthy snacks.
Start by dry brushing your skin to stimulate circulation as well as sloughing off dull dead skin cells. Then create the perfect bath, using essential oils, and enjoy some soothing me-time.
A relaxing bath is a great time to care for your locks with a hair mask too. Visit our Westbourne salon to see our Davines Circle Chronicles range and find the best one for you.
Celebrate Galentine’s Day With A Pampering Treat
Looking for a new way to celebrate Galentine’s Day? Why not spread the love and enjoy a pampering session with a friend (or two!) at our Westbourne salon?
You could book a relaxing hair treatment, followed by a cut and blow dry, then enjoy lunch out at one of our local restaurants.
Make a List
As we’re talking about celebrating self-care, it makes sense to make a list of things we love about ourselves! Grab a notebook and think about all the things you might compliment a friend on, and extend this to yourself. You could think about your strengths, accomplishments and kindness for example.
Take time to tune in to what you are feeling and try to quieten the negative inner voice we all have within ourselves.
Take Care of Your Hair
No matter what your plans are this month, show your hair some love! A great hair cut or new hair colour always lifts the spirits and it’s great way to boost self esteem.
If your hair has lost its shine and vitality, we would recommend trying a Davines hair mask. These relaxing treatments can be adapted for all hair types – speak to your Simone Thomas stylist for more advice.
Let Your Natural Beauty Shine
Nothing makes us feel better about ourselves than a healthy glow. At Simone Thomas Wellness we know that true beauty comes from within, with correct nourishment, exercise and mindset.
A well-balanced diet is critical to keep you fit, both physically and mentally. If you consume high levels of processed foods, your body will not be getting the vitamins and minerals it needs to stay fit and healthy. For more advice on healthy eating as well as wellbeing and mindfulness, follow our Wellness Facebook page.
