Home Pampering Tips With Amphora.

Hygge, pronounced ‘hoo-guh’ is a Danish word for cosiness meaning making yourself comfortable at home. It is currently all the rage in the UK what with the cold and miserable weather upon us. Whether it’s making a coffee or cosing up on the sofa with loved ones, Hygge is being aware of a good moment whether it is simple or special.

 

So we have got a few tips for you on how to indulge in Hygge this Winter.

• Face masks

Face masks are a good way to relax – I mean, who can resist the relaxation time and skincare benefits? We stock a vast variety of natural face masks catered for your individual skin types. Face masks can help hydrate, moisturise and cleanse the skin as well as uplifting your spirits – especially during the cold weather dry skin can become a problem. Shop Ooharr face masks here and AA Skincare deep cleansing face masks here.

• Hot Baths

Most of us turn to a hot bath for its relaxation purposes as well as having a bit of ‘you time’ and it can really help in many ways, from soothing muscle pain to helping with skin concerns. Especially with it being cold our body becomes much stiffer and sore. It’s perfect for warming yourself up and de-stressing. Why not try an Epsom salt bath with a few drops of Lavender Essential Oil?

• Candles

Candles can really have a huge impact on our relaxation process. There are many calming effects of candlelight it can reduce stress and increase self-awareness. We all know a scented candle is a great luxury but have you tried essential oil candles? Essential oil candles are a great way to enhance the room with beautiful aromas and to reap all the beneficial therapeutic properties. Bring the tranquil and restorative light of candles into your daily life. Shop essential oil candles here

• Socialising

The winter month can be a very busy month what with party season near and Christmas around the corner, but not all of us want to be out in this cold weather. A lovely way to relax and socialise, and a huge part of Hygge, is spending time with friends and family even if it is indoors. Pamper evenings are perfect, why not invite your friends round, apply face masks and have a good catch up. Or even snuggle up on the sofa in front of a fire or under a blanket watching a movie and sipping hot chocolate.

 

Thank you for taking the time to read our latest blog. We hope you manage to indulge in some Hygge soon.
