Indulge in Blissful Self-Pampering with Tips from Anantara Spa

Togetherness

As we all continue to practice social distancing, it’s more important than ever to focus on whole-body wellness and practice self-care.
It’s the simple things, like the soothing scent of a fragrant bath, that help us make it through each day feeling our best.

To perk up your stay-at-home routine, we consulted with our pool of beauty experts at Anantara Spas, who are also staying home for the greater good.  
They shared their favourite skin, hair, lip, and body boosters that can be crafted with products you’ll find in your pantry and refrigerator.  
We hope you’ll feel refreshed in both body and soul after you’ve finished these home-pampering routines.

Body brushing from Bodina Qureshi, Spa Director,
 
Anantara Dhigu Maldives Resort, Maldives

A full body exfoliation is the perfect pampering treatment to combat dry and dull skin leaving a beautiful glow 
– and the best part is you do not have to leave the comfort of your home to achieve this!

A combination of grated coconut, cinnamon and nutmeg with a sprinkle of salt make for a beautiful body scrub with the perfect texture and an incredible scent.

If you have some coconut oil hiding in your cupboards add some for extra moisture, but a little water will also create the perfect consistency. 
Nutmeg has long been used in herbal medicine as a treatment to sustain and promote skin appearance.

In Ayurvedic medicine it is used for its anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties decreasing the likelihood of infections and helping control sebum production.

Cinnamon is a powerful antioxidant with anti-inflammatory properties and is a great addition to any combination with its bold flavor and scent
