Stay-At-Home DIY Spa/Self Care Tips and Tricks
While a trip to the day spa still may be out of question for many of us, treating yourself to a little at-home spa day is the perfect form of self-care. As unpredictable as life has been during this pandemic, it certainly came with its own set of emotions and stressors. Finding some time to relax and reset has never been more important than now. From DIY scrubs to facemasks, we’ve got all the tips and tricks you need to make your self-care Sunday’s complete!
Setting the Mood
Recreating a spa atmosphere at home is very easy to do. You can start by finding relaxing spa music through your favorite streaming service and lighting your favorite candle. The aroma of a room is very important. Scents of lavender and eucalyptus may help to relieve depression, anxiety, pain, inflammation and congestion.
Next, choose your coziest robe, grab the softest towels and washcloths— and you’re on your way to true serenity and peace!
Have it Your Way
The mood is set and it’s time for you to choose your spa day treatments. Now is the perfect time to focus on the problem areas that you’ve been neglecting for so long. Do you want to focus on your hair, body, nails, skin, or feet? For those who want to focus on your body, start by taking a bath with Epsom salt and soak with the lights dimmed and relaxing music playing in the background. If it’s time to give your hair some TLC, maybe you should try deep conditioning by making your own DIY hair mask. Last but not least, an at-home manicure and pedicure using your favorite nail polish feels great!
