CosmoBy Cosmo -

Sometimes, we get so wrapped up in our day-to-day that we forget to take time to look after ourselves; but attempting to chill should be up there with your top priorities. Taking care of numero uno has maybe never been so important, so we have rounded up three relaxing, and, TBH, just plain easy, acts of self-care you’ll want to do immediately.

I’m feeling better already!

3 ingredients face and lip scrub...

A very easy and quick recipe that exfoliates, moisturizes and clarifies the skin leaving it healthy and glowing.

Start off by mixing 1 ½ tablespoon of honey with 1 ½ tablespoon fine sugar and 3 tablespoons of olive/almond oil. Mix well and apply to a wet and clean skin. Massage gently in a circular motion for 3 minutes. Make sure to avoid the eye area. Finally, rinse your face well and pat dry with a cotton towel.

Indulge in some hair TLC...

We know what you’re thinking, this process takes more than three minutes - right? Well, not with Pantene's 3 Minute Miracle! If you are in need of a quick burst of moisturizer for your hair, then this is the product your shelfie needs. It basically combines the power of both a hair mask and a rinse off conditioner, and it works whether your hair is curly, dry, bleached or coloured. Think of it as a salon-like hair care treatment but from the comfort of your home.

Pantene’s 3 Minute Miracle is an intensive hair treatment that has the power to fix three months of damaged hair in only three minutes. Simply apply it to wet hair, wait for - ye, you guessed it, three minutes and rinse it off for the a deeply nourishing treatment that you deffo deserve. 

3 minutes of mindful breathing...

This mini meditation exercise and simple breathing practice will train your brain to be focused and calm. It helps lower levels of stress and reduces anxiety, so in return you’ll feel you’re more productive and more positive. 

Firstly, start by sitting up straight with your feet touching the ground. Close your eyes if possible. Acknowledge all the feelings, sensations and thoughts you’re having. Next, redirect your full attention to breathing through your nose, filling up your chest and belly with air. Breath out and feel your chest fall. Finally, expand your awareness around your breathing to include a sense of your whole body and feelings, even if it involves a slight sensation of discomfort. Bring your focus of attention right into it and keep breathing slowly. End the exercise with a smile and feel the peace and happiness in your heart and mind.
