You don’t need to pay a fortune for a gel manicure or massage to pamper yourself! Take some “me time” and feel like a princess with these 5 inexpensive self-care rituals.

  1. Enjoy a bubble bath and your favorite music

Create a playlist of your favorite tunes and soak in a warm, sudsy bubble bath! There’s an affordable gel for every budget. Vitabath’s Heavenly Coconut Creme Bubble Bath is only $7.99. Philosophy sells a ton of luscious scents to choose from, including raspberry sorbet, lemon custard, and melon daiquiri, all for $18.

  1. Deep condition your hair

For luscious, moisture-rich locks, try a deep conditioner or hair mask. If you regularly straighten or curl your hair, deep conditioning can mitigate the heat damage and help you maintain a glossy look. Target sells plenty of excellent products, such as the $14.99 Alikay Naturals Honey and Sage Deep Conditioner and the $9.49 SheaMoisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthen & Restore Treatment Mask

  1. Do a face mask

Face masks can do wonders for your skin: exfoliating, hydrating, detoxifying, clarifying, and perfecting! They also come in a variety of scents. Sephora Collection face masks are all $6 and include pineapple, rose, lychee, and orchid! Revitalize your complexion and glow, girl, glow.

  1. Paint your nails

Skip the salon and DIY! Whether you want shimmery or matte, neon or pastel, pink or purple, there’s a perfect shade for you. Sally Hansen Color Therapy Nail Polish comes in 44 gorgeous colors and is only $7.99. Essie sells hundreds of shades for $9-11.50.

  1. Invest in a cute and comfy bathrobe

What else are you going to wear after your bubble bath? A soft and cozy bathrobe is perfect for any season. Try a lightweight waffle weave robe for spring/summer and a warm, plush fleece for fall/autumn! If you’re feeling extra fancy, go for satin or silk.

Walmart sells very affordable bathrobes, including the Granada ¾ Sleeve Lightweight Terry Robe for $12.99, the Secret Treasures Superminky Robe for $8.50, and the Gloria Vanderbilt Fleece Robe for $12.99!

It’s never a bad day to give yourself a little TLC. Your castle is calling, princess!
