How Can You Can Pamper Yourself with a Spa Treatment at Home
We all need some tender loving care, and we can teach you how to treat yourself to a lovely spa treatment from home. Keep reading to find out how.
1. Set the Mood
Professional spas are great because they create an atmosphere that allows you to relax instantly. Choose your favorite part of your house, clean it up and take the cue from the professionals. Put some slow relaxing music, light those romantic candles, dim the lights, change into your cozy robes and get ready for your treatment.
You can use essential oils to trick your sense of smell into relaxing. The aromas of the different oils have different benefits and properties. Here are a few essential oils that you can add to your diffuser to help you relax.
- Rose essential oil
Don’t rub these essential oils directly on your skin.
2. Thank Your Face with Facials
You can start your home spa treatment with a facial. Wash your face and take time to massage your skincare products into your skin slowly. Steam your face to open up your pores; steaming is also a great way to relax and prepare your face for the treatments.
Add a drop of essential oil to the pot of hot water to relax you further. Lean over the bowl and Breathe in through your nose and feel yourself start to relax.
3. Exfoliate, Exfoliate, Exfoliate
Exfoliate your skin with a chemical peel or a facial scrub to remove dead skin cells. Wash off the exfoliant and apply a facial treatment. We love to make our facial creams; you can too.
Mix a quarter of an avocado, a tablespoon of cocoa powder and honey to form a thick hydrating paste. You can also try out the chamomile mix to soothe your skin. Simply mix brewed chamomile tea with a spoon of yeast and raw honey and rub it on your face. Allow the mixture sit on your face for 15 minutes, then rinse off.
If DIY facial products aren’t your thing, you can hop into the store and get any good facial cream or moisturize.
4. Scrub Down
Apart from your hurried facials, when was the last time you scrubbed your entire body? Can’t remember? Then you are long overdue for a full-body scrub.
Pour some of your favorite body scrub on your loofah and spread it all over your body in circular motions. Pay extra attention to your legs, elbows, torso, feet, knees and bottom; they typically have a lot of dead skin. You will slowly but surely do away with the patchy dead skin and uncover the healthy layer underneath.
After exfoliating, rinse off the scrub and dry yourself off with a cotton towel.
5. Pay Attention to Your Hair
Pamper every inch of your body, including your hair. Shampoo it thoroughly with a mild shampoo. You can cleanse your scalp with apple cider vinegar to eliminate all the pent up dirt and products. Rinse off and dry your hair. Now it’s time for the leave-in. After applying the leave-in treatment, steam your hair for 30 minutes to allow your pores to absorb the treatments. While you wait for the treatment to penetrate your follicles, you can proceed with the other beauty treatments.
6. Foot Time!
Your feet take you all around town, so it is only fair that you include them in your spa treatment. Thanks to all the work your feet do, they can become dry and cracked. So the best thing to do is soak them in a bath filled with warm water, some drops of essential oil and Epsom salt.
The warm water slowly softens up the calluses and soothes the cracks. After 30 minutes, you can take your feet out of the bath and scrub away with your pumice stone to remove the dead skin. Finish up your foot treatment with a hydrating foot.
7. Give Yourself a Salon-Worthy Pedicure
What is a spa treatment without the good old pedicure? After your feet scrub, dry your feet and trim your nails. Next, file them into your preferred shape and paint them in your preferred color; you can use gel paint for better results.
8. Show Your Lips Some Tender Loving Care
Are your lips parched and dry? Then you need to pay more attention to them. Use a lip scrub to exfoliate your lips and reveal the fresh layer underneath. If you prefer DIY treatments, you can make the scrub yourself. Mix one tablespoon of natural honey and two tablespoons of sugar and apply to your lips and scrub away.
Finish off your lip session by applying a moisturizing lip balm gently to your lips.
9. Top It Off With a Leisure Bath
Now that you feel rejuvenated and your entire body has that professional spa-worthy glow, top it all with a luxurious soak. Draw yourself a warm bath. Add some drops of essential oils, bath salts and of course bath bombs and just soak.
While you enjoy your soak, you can sip tea, listen to soothing music or even read your favorite book. Take your time and enjoy this moment of self-care! When you are done soaking, shower, moisturize, slip into your bathrobes and prepare for a blissful night’s sleep.
Set the mood, get out your scrubs, bath bomb, essential oils and hair mask and prepare to have the time of your life! Treat yourself to a relaxing revitalizing spa treatment from the comfort of your house. Trust us, after your spa treatment you will sleep like a baby with no care in the world!
