There are days when we deserve a break and a little time to take care of the skin, hair, and body – who doesn’t love those moments of beauty? Doing an exfoliation, finally using that powerful hair mask, moisturizing the whole body, and betting on that different shampoo full of benefits are steps that you can hardly include every day in our beauty routine, right? The hustle and bustle of everyday life barely let us put a moisturizer on our faces before going to sleep.
How about getting away from the routine and betting on a spa night without leaving your home? Are you excited? Let’s start:
1. Relaxing bath
Whoever has a bathtub can start the ritual of at-home spa using bath salts and essential oils of rosemary or lavender. These same items can be placed in a ‘bundle’ to be hung in the shower.
You can also get bath bombs for the experience. These are used for a surreal bathtub experience.
Don’t forget to light up some scented candles and put on bossa nova or spa music. It creates the perfect spa ambiance.
You start by soaking up in a tub. If you don’t have a tub, a warm water shower will do too.
What’s the next thing you need to do?
After preparing your skin with warm water and hot steam, it’s time for the scrub. Massage the body with circular movements and then remove it in the bath.
Those who do not have a specific product can try the options with natural ingredients: honey or sugar cane molasses with crystal sugar. Bath sponges are excellent exfoliators if you have dry skin.
These days you can get two-in-one products. There are bath sponges with in-built body wash/soap.
Body scrubs are essential, mainly because they help you remove dead skin cells. Your skin will start looking dull with the dead skin cells, so you must take care of it.
That’s the most fun part, isn’t it? Start your skincare by wiping your face with liquid facial soap. Then, use a good scrub to unclog your pores, eliminate impurities, toxins and reduce skin oiliness. The next step is to apply a face mask – the ones that contain clays are always good options!
4. Face mask
Several brands on the market offer good options and a huge variety of ingredients, such as vitamin C, hyaluronic acid, and various types of clay. In addition to the active ingredients for beauty, these products promise to bring soothing and fresh sensations to the skin. And be careful: always remove the mask with gentle circular movements. Once the mask application and removal have been completed, apply the toner to finish the cleansing and prepare the skin for hydration. After toning, apply the moisturizer evenly and take this time to do a facial massage.
5. Masks for eyes, lips, and body
The beauty market offers specific masks for various parts of the face and even the body. To provide hydration and volume to the lips, bet on lip scrubs and moisturizing products with collagen and hyaluronic acid. Eye mask of collagen, hyaluronic acid, and cucumber is quite beneficial for the eye region.
Remember that it is super important to choose the products according to your skin type!
While in the bath, take the time to take care of the locks! In addition to paying attention to the skin, your focus must also be on the hair. Use a good shampoo and massage the scalp while applying the product. Then, choose a good moisturizing mask and leave it on the hair for the minutes recommended by the manufacturer. Finally, apply the conditioner to seal the hair cuticles.
Put warm water in a container, dip your feet slowly and submerge them. Add essential oils, round gardening stones, marbles, and place your feet on them to massage the plantar region.
You can also use a scrubber to clean your feet, especially the soles of your feet.
A spa night is all about you. If you have your partner by your side, the experience will be better.
You don’t need to leave the house or have professional tools to give yourself moments of relaxation and wellness. With planning and creativity, it is possible to do a spa in the home’s comfort using various at-home spa products available in the market.
