Choose your own adventure this Valentine’s Day

Valentine's Day can be a great reminder to prioritise your partner or indulge in some self-care if you're single.

This Valentine's Day, why not 'choose your own adventure' for a fun twist on the most romantic day of the year?

For couples

Celebrate romance and try the following ideas to spoil that special someone.

Treat yourself to a couple's pamper day at home. Run a warm bath (throw in a bath bomb with essential oils to boost the senses) and spend time reconnecting and relaxing together.

If you'd prefer to spoil your partner and keep the focus entirely on them, try a magnesium bath soak to help soothe and rejuvenate.

Finish your spa day with a hydrating face mask and a spritz of face mist.

Physical touch has been proven to increase feelings of calm and reduce stress (by reducing the stress hormone cortisol) and blood pressure. Touch can also create a sense of acceptance, comfort and care.

Giving each a relaxing, gentle massage can be a great way to relax and reconnect. Try a relaxing blend scented with essential oils, or go for an unscented version.

If you or your partner prefer a firmer, more therapeutic massage, massage guns have become increasingly popular to reduce muscle tightness and pain.

Make sure you communicate your preferred pressure and give each other feedback throughout the massage to avoid too much pressure or painful areas.

For single people

Take the time this Valentine’s Day to spoil yourself and carve out some serious me-time.

Indulge in some self-care and pamper yourself by:

  • Taking yourself on the ultimate date - go out to dinner, catch a movie, and treat yourself to that new fragrance you’ve had your eye on.
  • Unwinding in a warm bath with bath salts, a face mask, and an at-home mani and pedi.
  • Remembering that wellness is holistic: our Sexual Wellness range has been carefully curated to increase intimacy, confidence and pleasure.
  • Indulging in your favourite activities, like spending time with friends, dabbling in a much-loved hobby or trying something new that pushes you out of your comfort zone.
