After coming home from a romantic evening with your significant other, you may want to wind down by indulging in one of the oldest body skincare routines: a massage. Experts have been lauding the medical and emotional benefits of massage for years, and it can help couples grow closer.
A massage can give you a feeling a safety and comfort, as it engages the parasympathetic nervous system responsible for the relaxation response. Once your body begins to release tension, it can process food and eliminate toxins more effectively.
While you can rub your loved one's back using your hands alone, the experience can be improved by using a lotion or oil. The Elemis Spa At Home Frangipani Monoi Body Oil is designed to moisturize even the driest skin and features an exotic combination of oils from the Polynesian Islands.
Not only does Monoi oil protect skin from free radicals, leaving it silky smooth, it can also function as a conditioning treatment for the hair and nails. Treat yourself and your partner to a decadent evening of rejuvenation.
