Who doesn’t love a rejuvenating spa treatment? After a stressful and hectic day or week, hours spent at a spa are exactly what we need for an ultimate pampering experience and full-body relaxation. However, if a regular spa visit is not an option for you, an at-home spa treatment could be the answer.
You can recreate some indulgences right from the comfort of your home, from the stress-relieving body and eye massages to hydrating facials and re-energizing foot scrubs. With an at-home DIY experience that perfectly fits into your schedule and budget, you get to enjoy the spa’s health and beauty benefits without waiting for the weekend.
Here’s a quick checklist to help you experience an ultra-luxe escape at your home anytime you need it.
Therapeutic At-Home Spa Experience
1. Set the Mood and Atmosphere
When recreating a relaxing at-home spa experience, find a comfortable spot where you’re least likely to be disturbed. Light some scented candles or incense to set a relaxing atmosphere and help put your mind at ease.
Diffusing your favorite essential oils can add a sense of tranquility to your surroundings as well, further relaxing your mind and body. Uplift your mood and unwind by playing some soothing music or songs from your playlist for a sense of calmness and peace.
2. Create A Homemade Facial Mask
Nourish and pamper your skin with a homemade facial mask. With easy-to-find ingredients, a homemade facial mask is made to hydrate your skin, improve the appearance of pores and eliminate excess oils.
For your DIY facial mask, you can easily buy some ingredients from the market or a grocery store. But when doing so, choose those that are safe to use for your skin type. Dr. Mona Gohara, a Board-Certified Dermatologist and Professor of Dermatology at Yale School of Medicine, says that the rule of thumb is this: check how your skin would react to the ingredients. It’s always safe to ask your dermatologist if you’re unsure.
Here are some of the expert-recommended ingredients for your homemade facial mask:
- Avocado - rich in vitamins E and C for your skin’s vitality
- Green tea - known for its anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial benefits. It can help de-puff and refresh your skin
- Oatmeal - works as an exfoliant when applied to your skin. It cleanses and moisturizes.
- Papaya - smoothens and helps fight age spots
- Honey- exfoliates the skin without making it irritated.
3. Indulge in A Warm Bath
Turn your bathtub into a mini spa with a soothing warm bath. New York-based Dermatologist Bobby Buka says that soaking in hot water helps increase blood flow to the skin, making the experience both therapeutic and reinvigorating.
Here are some steps that you can easily implement at home to experience a relaxing home spa bath:
- Put cacti and plants in your bathroom.
- Have an electric diffuser for your favorite essential oils.
- Recreate a spa-like atmosphere by upgrading your bathroom light fixtures
- Add salts and bath bombs to your bath to make the experience extra special. Bath bombs not only calm and soothe you, but also release an alluring aroma that stays with you after bathing.
4. Invest in a Eye Massager with Spa-Like Features
A proper skincare routine involves looking after the appearance and health of your eyes. This makes an eye massager with spa-like therapy features a perfect addition to your skincare habits and spa treatment at home.
A massage perks up your eyes by easing strain, puffiness and dryness. It increases blood flow and soothes your tired eyes, making you feel relaxed and invigorated. Award-winning Aesthetician and Skincare and Wellbeing Expert Abigail James notes that a de-puffin eye massage can brighten and improve the swelling in the eyes without too much fuss.
Pampering Your Body and Mind
Spa treatments are all about pampering your body and mind. With little creativity, you can indulge in a next-level experience with the same results as those you’re getting from your favorite spa. Be sure to consult your dermatologist if needed.
