Turn your home into a deluxe spa!
We all need a bit of health, beauty and relaxation – now more than ever. Maybe we don’t have saunas, pools or steam rooms in our houses but we can enjoy all sorts of personal care treatments: facials, massages, mani-pedis and hair masks!
Loosen up: Set The Atmosphere
This is a crucial step to unwind and get the most out of your spa day at home. First, relax your mind – turn off your phone and turn on soothing music. Second, dim the lights or better yet, turn them off and light some candles. Finally, prepare a hot cup of tea and a cold glass of water – we’re aiming for the full spa experience here!
Get fancy: DIY Bath Bombs
Put that relaxing atmosphere to good use and draw a bath. To keep things lavish, make a bath bomb!
It’s quite simple – mix a cup of baking soda, half a cup of citric acid and cornstarch each, and a quarter cup of Epsom salt and melted coconut oil. Add essential oils of your choosing and a teaspoon of water to the mix. Don’t worry if you don’t have bath bomb molds, just shape them with your hands. Add some food coloring if you’re feeling particularly flashy. The only thing left to do is to drop your bomb into the bath.
Now sit back, relax and plop two slices of cucumber on your eyes like they do in movies – you got this baby!
Miracle facials at home: Ace That Face
Getting professional-level spa treatment at home is possible thanks to innovative beauty-tech devices from FOREO. First things first – you need to properly clean that face in order to apply any beneficial treatments. No matter how hard you scrub with your hands, they’ll never get your face as clean as LUNA 3 and its 8,000 T-Sonic pulsations per minute. But it’s also so much more than that!
Did you know LUNA 3 comes with app-connected firming massage routines? It is the true skincare miracle worker.
After you wash the dirt, sweat and bacteria away, it’s time to nourish every single pore. Sheet masks are all the rage right now. Opt for a DIY version or go all out and use the superb UFO devices to drive mask-essence deep into your skin. It only takes two minutes or less and it actually gets nutrients down where they work best – below the surface.
Stay fly: Manicures, Pedicures and Hair Masks
It’s the little things like manicures and pedicures that make your (spa) day. Keep your nails healthy and beautiful by dedicating a bit of time to nourish them.
Is your hair asking for some masking? Extend your spa day into a spa night with a DIY overnight hair mask. Just mash a banana or two (depending on your hair length) and add a tablespoon of manuka honey. Rub the mask gently into your hair and scalp, put your hair up in a shower cap or a towel and say night-night.
Bonus tip: spray some soothing essential oils around your bedroom for a great night’s sleep.
