You don’t have to spend a lot of money to go to the spa. Instead you can create it right in the pleasure of your own home. Since I travel a lot and I’m trying to work on my beauty and self-care regimen. I’ve been using my weekends to create my own self-care spa haven in my home. Creating a self-care spa day can be done any day of the week not just weekends. So why not allow yourself to have a few hours to relax and take care of you.
how to create a self-care spa day
When you want to have a self-care spa day you have to have the mindset of what you want to accomplish. Do you want to have a cozy night at home relaxing, or do you want to sit around and worry? I believe that you want to relax. So, start by gathering the essentials that you need to have a very cozy, relaxing moment. I have a few suggestions of some of my favorite products to use in the slider below.
gather the essentials
I usually begin by taking a nice hot shower, or bath. You could use your favorite bath salts, or a bath bomb. And once you are done make sure to use a very moisturizing body cream, so your skin won’t dry out. Also, set aside a good movie to watch and a good book to read.
Put on some comfortable clothes and light a candle. I love having a cozy atmosphere every time I am home. You can almost always find me with a candle lit and a nice soothing aroma filling up my place. It allows me to decompress and truly relax.
take care of your skin
Another way to relax is to give yourself a face mask. Your skin needs a face mask at least twice a month so it can be refreshed and hydrated. One of my favorite face masks is the black sugar exfoliating scrub – it makes my skin feel very refreshed after using it. I also like to redo my nails every week so they stay nice and polished.
end on a good note
End your spa day by eating a tasty snack and watching a good movie that you’ve been wanting to see for a while. I like to get lost in a good book that is on my never-ending list of books that I want to read. Another great way to end your spa day is to write in a journal. Writing is a great way to unwind and reflect on your day.
