Who doesn’t love going to the spa? Getting pampered and relaxing at the spa is one of the best self-care ideas to do.
However, going to the spa can be quite expensive. So why not do a spa day at home? You’ll still get all the benefits without spending a lot.
It’s easy to DIY your favorite spa experiences with the following ideas to try.
Treat your skin with a hydrating sheet mask
Have an at-home spa facial with a hydrating sheet mask. It doesn’t require any preparations but boasts of benefits such as brightening, hydrating and detoxifying your skin.
It’s an easy and cheap way to do a relaxing day spa at home without having to spend a lot of money of getting a facial at the spa.
Hang a eucalyptus in your shower
Hang a eucalyptus branch around your shower head for a DIY at-home aromatherapy. Make sure it’s not directly beneath the shower head. You can try hanging it around or over the shower head.
According to experts, the steam from the shower triggers a release of essential oils from the eucalyptus. It makes your shower smell amazing and make you feel relaxed physically and psychologically.
Take care of your hair with a hair mask
Don’t forget your hair when doing a spa day at home with a good hair mask. You can also use coconut oil or any other oil that’s good for hairs.
When using a hair mask, focus on the ends and leave it on for at least 30 minutes. If you’re using a hair oil, use it on a dry hair and leave it before shampooing.
Take a warm bubble bath or shower
Bubble baths are great at helping you unwind. Pour some epsom salts in and relax. Epsom salts are great for sore muscles.
Spend some time meditating and reflecting in the bath as you lay in silence. You can also surround your tub with scented candles to help set the mood. Bath bombs infused with essential oils and moisturizing ingredients are also a great addition.
Do a foot soak
If you don’t have enough time to spare, a foot soak is the perfect spa day at home idea. You can quickly set up a foot bath at your work table or desk.
De-puff your skin with an ice roller
For a long time, experts have sworn to the benefits of ice cubes as a skincare tool.
“They function as a natural makeup primer and have the capability to take cheekbones to new heights…They also act as spot-on treatments for breakouts [and] can help increase blood circulation, minimize pores, and soothe inflammation for clear, radiant skin.”Vogue
Ice rolling is one of the easiest and budget-friendly spa day at home ideas. You can simply run ice cubes along puffy areas on your skin or invest in an ice roller.
Sooth your skin with a heated lotion
Make your lotion more soothing by heating it up. Moisturize and revitalize your dry skin as you relax. You can microwave your favorite lotion for 30 seconds or simply get yourself a heated lotion dispenser.
Make your own body scrub
Combine 1 cup of brown sugar, olive oil and raw oatmeal. Then, while you’re in the shower, apply on dry skin and rinse.
