How To: Treat Yourself To A Spa Night In
Posted by Samantha Lawson
We are out of lockdown! Or are we? The jury might still be out on that, but whatever tier you’re in, we bet you’ve been craving a spa day just as much as we have. There’s just something about giving yourself permission to totally relax, and that after-spa feeling when you float home in a zen little bubble is just unbeatable. We’re doing our very best to recreate a spa night at home, because after you’ve found presents for everyone else this is hands down the ultimate self-gift, and there’s nothing like the run-up to Christmas to make you put self-care on the back-burner. Unless you’re very lucky and actually live in a spa, here are some tips for turning your home haven into a beauty retreat for the evening...
Luxe-up your bath
One of the best things about visiting a spa is sinking into a bubbly, fragrant Jacuzzi. Granted, this is a little difficult at home if you don’t have a whirlpool, but you can still make bath time feel extra luxurious. We’ve put our Perfect Night's Sleep Bath Foam in our Bring The Spa Home bundle because of its incredible relaxing qualities – its blend of essential oils including English lavender, sweet basil and jasmine, and marshmallow so it’s perfect for starting your wind-down. If closing the bathroom door behind you for an hour is the only me-time you manage to get, this is just one way to make it really count.
Treat your skin
Now for the spa bit! Here’s where we kick it up a level, because while we LOVE a bath, it’s just not going to cut it by itself for that just been pampered feeling. Enter our Intensive Skin Treatment Candle. Burn this while you soak for 30 minutes, and it will be ready to pour as you step out of the bath. Massaging this into your skin will not only soothe tired and achy muscles (hello computer neck!) but will REALLY treat your skin too – it contains super-nourishing ingredients and vitamins including baobab (vitamins C, A, D, E, F and essential fatty acids) and jojoba oil, which is a wonder in winter especially.
Sink into bed
Now you’re feeling calm, soothed and silky-smooth, it’s time to slip into your comfiest nightwear and sink into bed. If our essential oils have done their job, you’ll be nearly ready to drift right off. For one final nourishing touch use a slick of hand balm in the Perfect Night's Sleep blend.
It’s all in the combo
Creating your own little sanctuary is all about cocooning yourself with nourishing ingredients and oils that will give you a wellbeing boost. An essential part of going to a spa is having a therapist select oils and ingredients that will work for YOU and your goals, and that’s why all the products in our spa bundle have been selected to work together for ultimate winding down and relaxation.
Tempted? We’re putting spa time at home in all of our diaries.
