Love Thyself: Valentine’s Day

The greatest love story is the one you have with yourself, so on the International Day of Love it seems only natural that one would indulge in a little self-care. We have curated a list of some SPIRITED self-love ideas for Valentine’s Day!

Love thyself with relaxation, rejuvenation and rest with our recommended beauty products and wellness hubs on the Sunshine Coast.

Ocean Muse is a local skincare range designed specifically for our outdoor lifestyle. Founder Grace Kovac has created serums and moisturisers full of antioxidants to repair, renew and clear our skin exposed to harsh sun, humidity and salty seas.

Two hours of Summer Ceremony bliss at the award winning Ikatan Spa sounds a bit special. You’ll be exfoliated with delicious nourishing coconut oil, frangipani milk and ground rice powder to rejuvenate your skin, then cocooned in a wrap soaking up the sweet, subtle tropical aroma as you drift off with a soothing scalp massage. This is followed up with a 45-minute Balinese massage and 30-minute calming facial. You’ll then bask in self-love in the tropical gardens with a complimentary drink.

If you want to get all hot and sweaty on Valentine’s Day, get in the infrared sauna at City Cave Kawana. These sessions are awesome for relaxation and detox, then cool down with some float therapy. It will be the most relaxing 2 hours you have ever spent for only $99. You can also book in for a sensational relaxation or remedial massage. There is a special introductory offer when you mention Hello Sunshine magazine – three 60-minute floats plus a 45-minute Infrared session for $149 (that’s a saving of $120).

If your self-love journey starts with getting fit and fabulous in 2022, why not slide into some activewear and try the most talked about new fitness movement FS8 Coolum. This is a brilliant choice for those looking for a way to raise the pulse without putting stress on your joints. It’s a fun workout which blends Pilates, yoga and toning exercises. If we can do it, anyone can!

HIFU is the game changer for those that wish to give themselves the gift of looking and feeling younger on Valentine’s Day. High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound can be used to treat the face and body – get a face lift, reduce a double chin or sculpt your body. You’ll love yourself silly after a little Australia HIFU help.

For those looking to self-improve this year, may we suggest a good book. Radical Self Belief is the latest book by leading high performance expert and personal coach to some of the world’s best CEOs, Nikki Fogden-Moore AKA The Mojo Maker. Break up with overwhelm this Valentine’s Day and get back in the driver’s seat of your life with this radical read. Available now at Booktopia.

Enjoy getting all self-loved up this V Day!
