There’s nothing like being pampered at the spa after a long, stressful week. Sometimes we just need to feel good about ourselves.
Unfortunately, many spas aren’t open or may not be offering your favorite services because of the pandemic.
Thankfully, you can still practice self-care by creating a relaxing atmosphere and setting up your own spa day at home.
You’ve earned a little indulgence. So treat yourself to the spa experience you’ve been dreaming of. Follow the easy steps below to create your perfect at-home spa experience.
In This Post:
Step One: Set the Mood
The first step to creating your spa experience at home is to set the mood for a comfortable atmosphere. You will need to gather the items to complete your home spa kit.
We recommend setting up lots of candles around your home or spa area, especially ones with calming smells like vanilla or lavender. You can dim the lights or turn them off and just leave on a lamp.
It is also a great idea to put on some music to help you feel calm and relaxed.
Step Two: Relax With a Bath
You’ll need a bathtub, towels, and a bubble bath to create an authentic spa experience.
Forget everything for a few hours and kick your feet up. Turn your bathtub into an oasis with some bubble bath and bath salts. Slip away from the everyday hustle and relax in the tub. You deserve it!
Step Three: Apply a Face Mask
A face mask can be a great way to relax or add to your spa experience, but picking the right one can be difficult. Clay masks are often too thick and rough, cream masks are runny and don’t have the right smell, and some masks smell like fruit gone wrong.
The perfect face mask will peel off easily after 20 – 30 minutes and leave your skin feeling refreshed, clean, and soft.
Step Four: Stay Hydrated
Staying hydrated is an essential step when visiting the spa or when creating a spa-like experience at home. It can also enhance your spa experience.
Pour yourself a cup of flavored water or hot tea and enjoy it while sitting in the bath or wearing your facial. You can also give plain water that fancy spa look by adding a couple of sprigs of rosemary and a few slices of lemon!
Step Five: Mani-Pedi
You can’t forget to give yourself a mani-pedi! They pair perfectly with any spa treatment. Plus, practicing self-care habits such as doing your nails can make you look and feel good about yourself.
Getting a manicure can be difficult if your nails are thin and brittle. You may want to apply some nail primer to fix this issue. Even if your nails aren’t too thin, a good primer can help strengthen your nails and prevent breakage.
If you’re going for a more natural look and don’t want to add any color to your nails, there are clear coats you can apply to give your nails a beautiful shine.
