If you crave a good pampering but don’t want to give money to have an expensive spa day, don’t feel sad. With only a few soft things, aromatic hygiene products and some soothing music, you can recreate even the best spa experience right in your home. So, ditch your bad habits and embrace habits of having a home spa day once a week.
Get Luxe towels
Before you hop into the bathtub, there are a few things you need to have to bring your spa experience up to the level. The first is towels. Opt for big and soft types, but if you really want something special, you can get towels with Microban. Microban prevents the growth of bacteria, mold and mildew on your towels, and keeps the material cleaner and softer for a long time. Towels with Microban come in all sizes and colours, so pick one that matches your bathroom palette.
Surround yourself with amazing products
Before your home spa day, make sure to go do some shopping. There are two things you can’t do without some good natural soap and some scrub. For instance, opt for a big bar of soap made with natural ingredients such as dairy cream, olive oil, and shea butter, and you’ll feel amazing after a good rub-down. Also, get some body-exfoliating sugar cubes that will provide you with an invigorating and aromatic soak, and rid your skin of all impurities. After you finish your shopping, it’s time to hop into your robe and give these products a try.
Spas always smell subtly relaxing, just enough to let you know it’s time to let go of all your worries. You can create the same atmosphere in your home by getting scented candles. Lavender, chamomile, rose and sandalwood will wrap you with a gentle aroma and boost your relaxation, while also providing your space with some romantic light. On the other hand, if too many smells make you nauseated or trigger your allergies, you can turn on your handy air purifier instead and give your home spa a little detox. It will clean out the air and let you enjoy your pampering session to the fullest.
Play some soothing music
Silence is good, but it lets your mind get cluttered with all sorts of negative thoughts. So, play some gentle background music that will boost your relaxation. Spotify, iTunes and YouTube all have various Zen playlists perfect for your spa experience. Play the music before you start the rest of your spa experience.
Open up your pores with essential oils and herbal teas
Before enjoying your DIY beauty treatment and relaxing bath, you might want to open your pores and prep your skin for other treatments. The best and easiest way to do so is to simply boil some water, add to the pot (after a couple of minutes of cooling), put in some essential oils (lavender or sandalwood are a good choice) and a bag of herbal tea. All herbal teas will work, but lemon and ginger are great if you haven’t been feeling very upbeat and vigorous lately. After the concoction is ready, place your face over the pot and cover your head with a towel. Breathe in deeply and let your skin soak up all the beneficial ingredients for about 10 minutes. After you’re finished, your skin will be ready for the next spa stage.
Continue with a healthy face mask
A face mask is not a very luxe spa experience, but it will definitely be beneficial to your face. You can get various products in the stores, but making your own mask is sometimes better. For a simple homemade mask mix three spoons of orange juice and honey, and leave it for half an hour. Rinse with water and hop into the bath.
Finish off with a bath
After your treatments are over, enjoy the hot water on your skin that will relax your muscles, relieve any skin conditions and provide you with a good night’s sleep.
No matter how big or fancy your bathroom is, it can quickly turn into a home spa with these products and beauty routines. The soothing atmosphere will help you relax, while good beauty products keep you looking fresh, young and beautiful—the perfect spa combo right in the comfort of your home.
