Single and feeling a little weary as Valentine’s Day approaches? You’re not alone. Despite alternatives like Gelatine’s and Singles Awareness Day to make those who are unattached feel less isolated, the day can still be off-putting.

Interestingly, there are signs that even couples are also starting to grow weary of the day. A recent YouGov survey across 18 countries, found that Valentine’s Day’s relevance is waning due to over commercialising.

So if you’re single, instead of buying into the commercial notion of what Valentine’s Day should be, why not embrace the original intent behind the day? Expressing love and appreciation toward the object of your affection, which can be yourself.

With the daily stresses of modern life, studies show we’re spending less time tending to our needs so this Valentine’s Day could be the perfect time to show yourself some love. Pamper and shower yourself with all the love and appreciation that’ll nourish your body and soul. Here are five ways to do just that.

Turn up the heat in your bedroom

Few things are as satisfying as creating your own spa at home. You can find pampering skincare treats at your local high street store but if you feel like splurging, try products from luxury brand L’occitane. Their Luxury Almond Collection (£62) made up of Almond Shower Oil, Almond Delightful Body Balm, Almond Delicious Soap and Almond Delicious Hands is decadent and will leave your skin soft and feeling utterly pampered.
