By CAMILLE SANTIAGO Published Aug 03, 2021 9:30 pm

Looking after yourself is important, and in times like these, we could all use a little self-care. But now that trips to the spas and clinics are temporarily halted, there's no other way but to do it yourself at home.

As we celebrate National Wellness Month this August, let this be a reminder to include self-care into your daily schedule. There are so many ways to practice wellness—and most don't even require spending money—but if you want to step up your game, try using these products below to maintain optimal wellness while staying at home.

Ogawa Master Drive Plus

Getting a massage can be a pampering treat, but there's more to it than that. Aside from helping us feel relaxed and good, massages can reduce blood pressure and physical pain, calm anxiety and relieve stress.

Now, since many of us are still mandated to stay at home, investing in massage tools like the Ogawa Master Drive Plus chair is indeed a luxurious treat. This Ogawa massage chair is engineered with state-of-the-art technology that allows you to talk to the machine (like Siri or Alexa) and choose from a variety of massage programs that are "designed to suit specific lifestyle needs."

The price is no joke—P449,000 but it's now on sale at P269,400—but if you think of it in the long run, it's worth it. The best thing about having your own massage chair is that you can get a massage whenever you want!

NuSkin ageLOC Boost 

Is the ECQ making your skin look dull? That can change. NuSkin just came out with the ageLOC Boost device which uses an exclusive variable pulse microcurrent technology, that helps boost skin, making it brighter, bouncier, more radiant—all you need is just two minutes per day! Its priced at P18,000 and comes with a bottle of ageLOC Boost Activating Treatment.

Dr. Teal's Pink Himalayan Body Wash

The easiest way to wellness is getting a warm, relaxing bath in the evening to unwind. But instead of the usual soak and scrub, adding a few bath products can create the ultimate experience. For instance, this Dr. Teal's Pink Himalayan Body Wash (P400, Watsons), which contains Epsom Salts to help revitalize tired, achy muscles. It also has Aloe Vera, Shea Butter and Vitamin E to moisturize the skin, and Bergamot and Sweet Orange essential oils to sooth and relax your senses.
