Springtime means flowers, shorts, and Major League Baseball, but it also means seasonal downpours—and lots of them. While you can’t control the weather this spring, you can control your coping mechanisms, and a little quality “me” time is a great place to start. From feel-good haircare to opulent shaves, here are six awesome ways to embrace being forced indoors by those outdoor showers.
To be honest, we can’t remember the last time we settled down in a bathtub. But as a cherished hobby of the Roman elite, a piping-hot bath has some real appeal. To make the most of the experience, we recommend adding some Wake Up Rosemary Bath Salts, from the spa-day specialists at Essentiel Elements. The warming combo of mint and rosemary is a pleasant divergence from flowery bath salts, and an infusion of honey extract means it’s great for your skin as well.
We understand if you can’t get behind a clay-based detox mask. Frankly, everyone has their limits. For a low-key alternative that’s just as relaxing, take a 20-minute break with a Deep Moisture Mask from Clark’s Botanicals. The formula acts as a heavyweight moisturizer, with a cooling sensation to boot, making it perfect for anyone with dry or sensitive skin.
Someday, and someday soon, we’ll be able to afford a bathtub brimming with pudding, where we can lounge all day in opulence and comfort. But until that day arrives, a soothing coat of body butter might be the next best thing. AYRES makes a butter that smells as good as it feels, with refreshing scents that channel the cafés, alleys, and sun-kissed coastline of balmy Buenos Aires.
Rainy days are a time to pamper, and for many old-school gents, that means a return to ritual. Cooking a great steak. Shining your shoes. Or if you’re truly committed, a proper badger-hair shave. Ideally, a traditional regimen would feature a preshave oil, a lathering shave cream, and a bracing postshave splash, but the most important element is a solid safety razor. This one from Baxter of California will fill the role with aplomb.
We’re always amazed at how much a scent—especially the right scent—can liven up a home. While you can’t go wrong with a stick of incense, we’re also partial to the Transit Table Candle that Apolis whipped up in its L.A. workshop. Mediterranean fig adds a subtle, fruity twist to the woodsy scent of cypress, for an aromatic experience that can really fill a room.
Most of the items above are geared towards relaxation, but a day indoors is a fine opportunity for self-improvement too. If the changing in climate has left your hair feeling frizzled or dry, allocate 10 minutes for an in-depth treatment with Sachajuan Hair Repair. The high-powered formula will leave your coif feeling smoother, stronger, and softer, and you’ll be able to sleep knowing you didn’t waste a day playing Metroid and MarioKart.
