5 Little Luxuries to Indulge in During the Weekend

Spoiling one's self is a time-honored tradition of the truly rich, but it's prone to one major misconception. Treating yourself to life's luxuries doesn't only mean going on an impromptu flight overseas, or splurging on a favorite designer brand. It doesn't even have to involve a day at the spa, either.

Sometimes, it's the little things that we need to indulge in because these small reprieves from everyday life allow us to remember what makes us happy. Slow down and relax without the need to plan everything when you fill your home with small luxuries that spark joy. When Saturday morning comes rolling around, remind yourself to take a load off with these little treats:

1. Try facial acupuncture.

This cosmetic treatment is an extension of traditional acupuncture, which can help relieve body pain, nausea, and headaches. The difference is that facial acupuncture can help your complexion look younger, smoother, and brighter. Do a bit of research on your nearest holistic wellness center to see if they offer this youth-boosting treatment, and book an appointment as early as possible. 

2. Take a long bubble bath.

If you're a collector of bath bombs, use them this weekend for a long, hot bath. Take a tray of finger food, tea, or wine with you, and set your TV or gadget to your favorite program. If your body feels tense and tight from the past work week, use Epsom salt to relieve your muscles and soothe body pain. 

3. Indulge in spa products at home.

There is a wide range of goods that bring the spa experience home, from aromatic candles to foot soaks with essential oils. A vastly underrated treat that's perfect for the weekend, however, is a good, long shower—especially if you're using bath products that leave you feeling soft and fresh.

Take Dove's Exfoliating Body Polish, for instance: The body scrub helps moisturize as it exfoliates, leaving your skin smooth and supple after your bath. From the moment you feel its creamy texture on your skin, to when you smell its scent that fills the bathroom, the Body Polish is a multi-sensory luxury you can enjoy every weekend. It’s garnered over 17,000 five-star reviews, and you can choose from its three fragrances: Pomegranate Seeds & Shea Butter, Kiwi Seeds & Cool Aloe, and Crushed Macadamia & Rice Milk

4. Light up an aromatic candle.

Sometimes, all it takes to unwind is a little aromatherapy. Fragrant candles transform any room into a mood-improving haven, making them an excellent choice for the weekend. Combine this with a bit of meditation, and you'll be feeling refreshed for the coming week.

5. Do a virtual reality-guided meditation.

While leaps and bounds have been made in the tech world, it's often associated with work and productivity. This weekend, use technology as a relaxation tool instead. Virtual reality gear has been gaining popularity recently, and, on top of using it to play video games, you can use it to help guide you in meditation. Find a quiet, relaxing spot at home, put on year gear, and allow the program to sweep you away.
