There is nothing quite like having some time for yourself. Treating yourself to a good spa day and relaxing can be done in the comfort of your home if you just know how to get prepared and set the tone for the perfect “me time”. Firstly, make sure to pick a day that you won’t be interrupted from work or even your family which also means keeping your phone away the whole time. It is best if your phone can be turned off during this time. Take this time to fully immerse yourself in relaxing yourself. This article will give you a few tips on how to get started. Don’t forget to customize this routine as you desire.

Draw a warm bath

The best way to start is of course by drawing a hot bath, whether you like it warm or hot is up to you. Fill your tub with water at the temperature you like, and then set the ambience around it by dimming the lights and lighting some scented candles. You can buy some essential oils wholesale and add a few drops too or pour yourself a glass of wine, fruit punch or anything you want to drink. Perhaps play some soothing music or your favourite tunes to help you relax further.

Skin masks

Most spas add bath salts or oils such as jojoba oil to enhance the bath and give you the soothing and healing benefits of aromatherapy. You’ll come out of the bath feeling rejuvenated and skin feeling baby soft. While in the bath, it is also good to try out a skin mask. If you are able to get a Dead Sea mud face pack this would help your face and skin look healthy and bright after just one use. Make sure to gently massage your muscles as you soak in the bath, your sore muscles will instantly loosen up and you will feel more and more relaxed. After a gentle exfoliation, dry your skin and apply your favourite body or nourishing lotion.

Steam treatment

Steam treatment is always a great way to open your pores and clear them from any dirt or dust. Unlike a sauna, at home you can simply fill a small pot with hot water and drape a towel over your head and hold it over the pot to let the steam gently caress your face. Don’t hold your face too close to the hot water. You can also add in a few drops of lavender or tea tree oil for increased benefits and for a soothing feeling.
