Add a touch of luxe to your life to elevate the everyday. Sounds pricey? Not at all, it’s easily achievable without breaking the bank. And hey, you deserve it.

When you think of luxury, what comes to mind? Chances are it’s the kind of thing that comes with a hefty price tag – think five-star hotels, first-class flights and a flashy designer wardrobe.

But you don’t need to flash the cash to add a touch of luxe to your life. Instead, try our simple ideas to give yourself a little guilt-free lift every day.

1. Basic upgrades

Show yourself a little love by upgrading the basics and you’ll soon feel like you’re living in the lap of luxury. Top-quality essentials like towels and underwear don’t cost a lot more than the cheap versions, but wrapping yourself in a large, fluffy soft towel after the shower and then putting on silk rather than cotton will make you feel like you’re living your best life.

2. Face facts

Visiting the salon for regular facials can be costly, but that doesn’t mean you can’t experience the luxury of great skin. The Olay Regenerist 3-Point Super Cleansing System will give you ultra-cleansed and fresh skin, helping it to better absorb the active anti-ageing ingredients in your skincare regime, and making you feel like you’ve had a salon visit without leaving home.

3. Skin food

Healthy, nourished skin is an easily achievable luxury, thanks to Olay Regenerist 3 Point Treatment cream. The little red jar contains everything you need for lovely new skin in just five days, achieved through intense hydration and by encouraging surface cell renewal.

4. Make scents

Surrounding yourself with your favourite fragrances is a lovely way to bring luxury to your life. That doesn’t need to mean spritzing expensive perfumes and slathering on pricey body lotions. Instead, why not try adding Lenor Parfum des Secrets to your laundry? There are four heavenly fragrances to choose from, and they penetrate deep into your wash so you can carry the scent with you all day.

5. Breakfast club

Instead of starting your day with the usual toast or cereal, make a meal of breakfast once a week. You could treat yourself to something cooked at home, whether that’s a full English, pancakes or Eggs benedict. Even better, meet a friend at a local café for a catch up without the washing up!

6. Lush locks

If your crowning glory is looking more grim than glorious, then get it back to its luxurious best with the help of Pantene Pro V 3 Minute Miracle. It promises the power of a nourishing treatment masque in a daily conditioner, and can repair three months of hair damage in just three minutes.

7. Duvet day

That feeling of slipping into bed at the end of a long day is lovely enough, but fresh, clean sheets make it even better, especially when they are soothingly scented. Make it ultra-deluxe by adding Lenor Parfum des Secrets to your laundry when washing your bed linen, for a finely fragranced journey to the land of nod.

8. Go glam

Spending a little extra time doing your hair and make-up in the morning will boost your confidence and leave you feeling super ready to take on the world. For maximum impact, avail yourself of a makeover at a department store for a new look you’ll love.

9. Blooming lovely

For instantly cheering colour and an uplifting scent, it’s hard to beat fresh flowers. Whether they’re freshly picked from your garden, or a cheapo bunch chucked into the trolley while doing the supermarket shop, they’re an affordable luxury that’s hard to beat.

10. Burning up

When you can’t stretch to a celebrity-style designer frock, a simple way to bring some A-list luxury to your home is by burning a posh candle. Loved by everyone from Victoria Beckham to Madonna, scented candles add an opulent touch to your home and provide an instant mood boost.
