Pampering at home? Easy peasy! Just follow our beauty tips to chase your troubles away.
Say it with us: Life is HARD. It’s thrown us many curveballs, especially this year. Now that we’re met with more demands at home – thanks to WFH – it’s only fair we get a good dosage of self-care and me-time in return for fulfilling all these responsibilities. And if there’s any indication of what we’ve experienced this year, life’s too short not to pamper yourself. Read on as we share easy tips (and our fave services) that’ll lead you to pamper city.
Pampering yourself shouldn’t be a chore
The whole idea of pampering yourself at home is convenience. There’s no need to dress up, put your face on and travel all the way to the spa or salon. Just throw on your fave jammies or a comfy bathrobe and you’re ready to go!
Pick a playlist: Music affects the mood. Hit play on that self-care soundtrack, whether you’re into snazzy jazz beats or head-bobbing guilty pleasures.
Light up a candle: Turn your home into a spa by lighting up scented candles. Our favourites include lavender, citrus, eucalyptus, jasmine and vanilla.
Have a facial: Yes, you can totally do this at home! Gather your skincare bottles (add a good face mask to the mix), invest in a steamer (to open your pores and increase circulation), and take time to work through your regime. End off with a facial massage using a facial roller or gua sha.
Let the pros take care of you
Ready to take things to the next level? We’re lucky to have experts in Singapore that bring the salon to you. Urban Company is a home service platform that offers manicures and pedicures – amongst other professional beauty services – right at your home.

All you need to do is select a service of your choice on the app or website, pick your nail colours, schedule the date, pop in your address, and you’ve booked yourselves a mani-pedi sesh. Way easier than picking a nail colour, we tell you! On the day of your appointment, one of the trained and professional manicurists will give you high-quality service on your fave comfy couch.
Concerned about hygiene? We totally get it. We’re happy to report that many of these mobile beauty services have increased their hygiene standards ever since the pandemic.
