Wellness for the home
If you want to pamper yourself and your body, you can do this at home in your familiar surroundings. A hot bubble bath by candlelight, with soft music, a hair treatment and a nourishing face mask can work wonders. Here you can unwind and your body can relax in the hot water. You can also get bath additives in the drugstore that spread a pleasant aroma and make it easier for you to relax and switch off. If you like, you can also enjoy a glass of sparkling wine, which is also offered in most wellness hotels. If you don't have a bath, you can just enjoy a long, hot shower. In the drugstore you can get many beautiful shower gels that not only care for your skin, but also pamper your senses with their fragrance. Then apply your favorite body lotion, snuggle up in your bathrobe or a blanket and continue to relax on the couch with a book and a hot cup of tea. An extensive manicure and pedicure are also part of a wellness day at home. Since the cuticles are particularly soft after a bath or shower, they can be easily removed with suitable tools (e.g. a rosewood stick). Then you can paint your toenails and fingernails in a color of your choice. Even if you wear closed-toe shoes: you will notice that you immediately feel even more attractive.
