A spa night is the perfect way to relax, rejuvenate, and pamper yourself. But you don't need to go to a expensive spa to enjoy the benefits of a spa day. You can easily create your own DIY spa night at home!
For a extra bit of relaxation choose one of our care hampers which come with everything you need for the perfect at home spa experience.
1. Create a relaxing atmosphere
Start by setting the mood for your perfect spa night. Pick a time when you know you won't be interrupted and put away any electronics that might distract you from fully enjoying the experience. You can also set the scene with some calming music and dim lighting. Candles are always nice, but if you don't have any on hand, a simple string of fairy lights will do the trick.
2. Give yourself a luxurious facial
One of the best parts of going to a spa is getting a professional facial, but you can easily recreate this at home. Start by cleansing your face with your favorite cleanser. Then apply a hydrating mask and let it sit for about 15 minutes. While the mask is working its magic, take the opportunity to give yourself a hand or foot massage. Once the mask is dry, remove it with a damp cloth and apply a nourishing face cream.
3. Soak in a relaxing bath
Fill your tub with warm water and add some soothing aromatherapy oils or Epsom salts to help you relax even further. Light some candles and put on some calming music to set the mood. Then just soak for 20-30 minutes and let all your stress melt away.
4. Make your own sugar scrub
One of the best ways to exfoliate your skin is with a sugar scrub. You can easily make your own at home with just a few ingredients. Combine 1 cup of sugar with 1/2 cup of olive oil or coconut oil and a few drops of your favorite essential oil. Store the scrub in a jar and use it when you're ready for your next spa treatment.
5. Give yourself a manicure or pedicure
There's no need to go to a salon to get a professional-looking manicure or pedicure. Just grab some nail polish from your local drugstore and follow these simple tips. For the perfect at-home mani, start by applying a base coat to protect your nails. Then paint your nails with two coats of color, allowing each coat to dry completely before moving on to the next. Finish with a top coat for extra shine and protection. For an at-home pedicure, start by soaking your feet in warm water for 10 minutes to soften the skin. Then exfoliate with a sugar scrub or pumice stone to get rid of any dead skin cells. Rinse your feet and dry them completely before applying a base coat, color, and top coat to your toenails.
6. Use a moisturizing hair mask
A spa night isn't complete without some kind of hair treatment. If your hair is feeling dry and damaged, use a moisturizing hair mask to give it some much-needed TLC. There are plenty of store-bought options available, or you can make your own with just a few simple ingredients. Combine 1/2 cup of mayonnaise, 1/4 cup of olive oil, and the juice of one lemon. Apply the mask to your hair and let it sit for 20 minutes before rinsing it out.
7. Give yourself a massage
One of the best ways to relax is by giving yourself a massage. Start by rubbing some aromatherapy oils into your skin. Then use your hands to knead any knots or tension points in your muscles. If you really want to go all out, you can invest in a portable massage device like a back massager or foot massager.
8. Make your own body wrap
Body wraps are another great way to pamper yourself at home. There are a few different ways to make your own body wrap, but the simplest way is to just use a sheet or towel soaked in warm water. Wrap the sheet around your body and let it sit for 20-30 minutes. For an added boost, you can add some aromatherapy oils or Epsom salts to the water before soaking the sheet.
9. Try a clay mask
Clay masks are great for detoxifying and revitalizing your skin. You can buy them pre-made, or you can make your own with just a few ingredients. Combine 1/4 cup of bentonite clay with 1/4 cup of water and mix until it forms a paste. Spread the paste evenly over your face and let it sit for 15-20 minutes. Rinse the mask off with warm water and follow up with a moisturizer.
10. Sip on some herbal tea
After a long day, there's nothing better than sitting down with a cup of herbal tea. Herbal teas are not only delicious, but they can also help you relax and unwind. Chamomile and lavender tea are particularly good for promoting relaxation. So brew yourself a cup and enjoy your perfect DIY spa night.
11. Get a good night's sleep
Last but not least, don't forget to get a good night's sleep. A spa night is the perfect opportunity to relax and recharge, so make sure you give yourself enough time to catch up on some much-needed rest. Follow these tips and you're sure to have the best DIY spa night ever.
