Missing Your Day Spa? Create Your Own at Home!
If you’re feeling a bit overwhelmed, perhaps short on time and cash, but would love a little indulgence, you can create your own divine day spa at home and enjoy a little ME time.
Set the Ambiance
Day Spas are calming, serene and inviting, so to replicate this you’ll need to do a few simple things for ambiance. Place candles in every corner of your day spa, dim the lights and make sure the room is warm if it’s winter.
Do Not Disturb
Nothing is a bigger buzzkill than disturbing your serenity, so ask housemates or family members for some privacy for 30 mins. Pour yourself a hot cocoa, herbal tea or glass of wine and put the ‘do not disturb sign’ on the handle.
Start With a Cup of Bath Salts
Turn on the tap and soften the water by pouring in unscented bath salts or Epsom salts to really relax those tired aching muscles.
A Few Drops of Essential Oils for Scent
Add 5 - 10 drops of essential oils to get the aromatherapy started. Lavender drops are good to induce a sleepy state and eucalyptus is perfect if you’ve got a chesty cold.
Apply a Face Mask While You Bathe
For a touch of decadence, apply a face mask with a paint or face brush to set while you soak. Let it sit for 10 minutes on your face and décolletage, then wash it off with a warm washcloth. Not only do you get a freshly scrubbed glow from the bath, but your pores will thank you for it after.
Pull-on Those Bath Mitts
After soaking for a good 20 minutes or so pull on the exfoliation gloves and give yourself a good invigorating body scrub. You can always throw a good but effective DIY scrub by using coconut oil, brown sugar and a drop or two of essential oil. Your skin will feel soft and supple afterward.
Dry off in a Warm Fluffy Towel and then step into a Fabulous Robe
Sink into a fluffy towel and enjoy the luxuriousness of how god it feels to dry off with a pre-heated towel (if you’re lucky enough to have a towel warmer), then simply sink into a divinely oversized robe.
Slather Yourself in Moisturiser
Hot water tends to dehydrate your skin. So make sure to use a replenishing moisturiser or body oil after your spa experience to lock in remaining moisture.
