Often we dream of spas to escape and disconnect. But our daily life is spent in our home and, specifically, in our bathroom. The comfort and intimacy that 'escaping' to a spa in our own home offers is within our reach if we learn to create the right atmosphere.
Make an appointment with yourself and book your bathroom. It is time to plan a spa day in your home and to give yourself time to relax, take care of your body, your hair and your physical and mental wellbeing, without ever leaving the house.
Steps for a complete spa session at home
Turn off your mobile phone and create the right atmosphere
The session begins when you move your attention away from any outside stimuli. So, turn off your phone and avoid any distractions other than preparing your spa.
Reduce the intensity of the light, place aromatic candles, flowers and put on music to inspire your relaxation.
You can complement the spa experience with a book, a glass of wine, some fruit or a pleasant and relaxing infusion.
Prepare the products you are going to use in your care ritual
Put them within easy reach so you do not get distracted looking for them later. Don't forget to prepare clean towels or a dressing gown.
Get in and relax
If you have a bathtub, fill it with hot water and bubbles and submerge yourself. You can boost the benefits of hydrotherapy with aromatherapy and adding essential oils, bath bubbles, bath bombs... The important thing is that you close your eyes, empty your mind for a few minutes, release the tension from your muscles and from your neck and back. If you do not have a bathtub, you can do this before getting into the shower to start your care routine by lying on a comfortable surface that allows you to get in touch with yourself, such as a bed or a sofa.
Take care of yourself
Start by cleansing your skin to remove toxins and impurities. A natural exfoliation of the skin and face and a hair massage with a purifying shampoo. Don't forget to exfoliate your feet, too.
After rinsing with warm water, apply a hair mask and a facial mask. To stay warm, you can cover your hair with a towel while you wait for the mask to do its job. Relax for a few more minutes and get ready to get out of the water.
Once rinsed off and out of the water, gently dry your hair and body and apply your usual moisturiser, slimming or firming cream... over your whole body, massaging yourself gently, without rushing. Complete the facial routine with your products: facial cream or serum.
Then, get dressed in comfortable clothing.
