While spas have been around since the time of the ancient Greeks, spas as we know them today only came to light in the 1800s. Back then, there were entire towns dedicated to spas. While this isn’t the case today, nothing stops you from creating a relaxing spa night at home.
Giving yourself the spa experience from the comfort of your home can be very fulfilling, but where should you start? After all, you could incorporate many factors into your spa night. Keep reading more below to learn where to start.
Choose a Face Mask
Having a spa night at home is all about pampering yourself, and the best way to do that is to choose a face mask that will soothe and improve the skin on your face. Everyone’s skin is different, so it is important that you choose a mask that complements your skin.
For example, if your skin is often dry, you should choose a very hydrating mask such as a honey mask. If you have large pores, consider an invigorating coffee mask to shrink them. If your skin is looking a bit dull, you can try an exfoliating clay or salt mask.
Whatever the case, choose a mask and let it sit so it can work its magic.
Aromatherapy is a great way to improve your relaxing spa night. There are many scent diffusers to choose from; some are best for small spaces like bedrooms or bathrooms. Small spaces scents also allow you to really experiment with whatever scent you choose.
Lavender scents are known to be very relaxing as well as mint or thyme. To really fill the air with calming scents, you can also light aromatic candles around your house or in a particular room. It is particularly relaxing to take a warm bath while taking in all the scents of your aromatherapy diffuser.
Infuse Your Bath
Taking a nice warm bath is perhaps the core of any relaxing spa night and is great for stress relief. Being alone in the warm water with your scent diffuser and candles is a great way to forget all about the stresses of the day.
The best way to do this is to infuse your bath with different things. For example, try adding oils such as sesame or coconut oil to your bath. You only need to add a little bit to benefit from these oils’ soothing and softening abilities.
They will make your skin feel softer than ever before. You can also add Epsom salt to your bath to leach the toxins out of your body, but this is not always necessary.
Creating the Perfect Relaxing Spa Night at Home
Creating a relaxing spa night at home doesn’t have to be difficult, but there are certain things you should consider. For example, having an aromatherapy scent diffuser can be very helpful, as well as taking a warm bath or putting on a face mask.
