Self-Care At Home: 7 Spa Day Essentials
Self-Care At Home: 7 Spa Day Essentials
Christmas is right around the corner and you’re probably busy buying gifts, going to holiday parties, and planning for the new year. With all that being said it’s easy to get wrapped up in the holidays and forget to take care of yourself. Although the holidays are known for togetherness and family that doesn’t mean that you can’t take a little time for yourself.
With the harsh cold weather and holiday hecticness, your body and mind are probably begging for a little rest and relaxation. Take care of yourself this month with an at-home spa day. It’s completely understandable if you’re budget doesn’t allow you to spend hundreds of dollars at a real spa. However, that doesn’t mean you have to miss out. Take a look at seven things that will bring the spa experience right to your home.
Being comfortable and relaxed is a must when trying to recreate the spa experience in your house. Switch out your regular pj’s for a cozy robe and slippers to help you to feel luxurious while you’re taking care of yourself. Whether you buy a new robe or use your old one just make sure it makes you feel snug and warm.
Bath salts have a way of turning any ordinary bath into a luxurious one. Sprinkle some bath salts to your warm bubble bath and watch the magic happen. Find natural bath salts that not only smell wonderful but have a therapeutic effect as well. Salts that include ingredients such as green tea, hemp seed oil, or Epsom salt are especially great for their many healing properties.
The cold weather and stress can affect our hair more than we know. With breakage and dryness rampant during winter, your hair will need pampering too. Hair masks are easy to make and don’t require many ingredients. To make a nourishing avocado hair treatment all you need are avocados, water, and olive oil. Also, the best part about DIY’s is that you can tweak things to your liking so you can add or take out ingredients depending on your preference.
Switch out your bright overhead lights for soft candlelight instead. Low lighting is known to create an intimate and relaxing ambiance for most rooms. Place a few candles throughout the room to add a warm and soft glow. If you don’t want to have too many openly lit candles in one room, try battery-operated candles. They work just as well but without the safety concerns.
Spa beds are beds specifically made to comfort people as they lay for hours getting treated. However, they can get expensive, so while you don’t need to go out and buy the next professional spa bed you see, make sure you have a comfortable place to lay down. You can achieve this by making sure you have a soft mattress paired with some high-quality pillows.
What better way to promote a serene environment than some calming music? This is the time to put on some of your most soothing playlists and relax your mind. If you don’t know many relaxing songs, you can always look up music playlists online. There will be a variety of options for you to try out. Don’t be afraid to listen to genres out of your comfort zone because you might be surprised by what you end up liking.
Don’t neglect your face. Due to the chilly weather, our skin tends to get extremely dry. After tending to your body and hair put on a moisturizing facial treatment. The type of mask you need depends on the type of skin you have. A cucumber and aloe mask is great during the winter because they are extremely hydrating and will leave your skin glowing. This is another DIY option!
While beautifying is always nice, At-home spa days aren’t only about face masks and bubble baths. Self-care days are necessary because they help people mentally relax unwind after stressful days and situations, so don’t let the holidays stand in the way of your self-care day.
