The Perfect Home Spa Routine

The Perfect Home Spa Routine

A night in to yourself? Total bliss! What better moment to take a little time out and relax? If you are in need of a little rest and recuperation after a busy few weeks, why not follow our home spa routine and give yourself a pamper?

How to have a DIY Spa Day

Having a relaxing pamper is all about making yourself feel special. By setting the scene and treating yourself to experiences and products you wouldn’t usually try, you can give yourself a spa session worthy of the pros. We have pulled together the must have items you need to use for your ultimate home spa day.

    Set the Mood

    The spa experience is all about the atmosphere. If you are really going to unwind and relax, you need to set the mood.
    Before even thinking about beauty products, make sure your environment is as soothing as possible. Give things a little tidy up, get out fresh towels and pop on your favourite music so that you can feel like you are really about to enjoy something special.
    The finishing touch for the true spa feel is to light a scented candle. We love the pure essential oils in the Aromatherapy Associates Relax Candle, which help to calm and soothe.

  2. Ila-Spa Bath Salts for Inner Peace

    Have a Good Soak

    Unless you are lucky enough to have one in your own house, the Steam Room and Sauna experience is hard to replicate at home. Having a long hot bath or shower is the next best thing though.
    Make sure you are helping your pores open up and your body relax, with scented steam. Try the Ila-Spa Bath Salts for Inner Peace to get that spa touch. The Himalayan Salts help relax muscles and soften skin, whilst the blend of essential oils will help your mind unwind. A touch of luxury that will transport you straight to the spa!

    Soften your Skin

    Those bath salts will do wonders for leaving your skin silky smooth, but why not give them a helping hand for the ultimate spa feel? Try dry brushing before you take a bath (we love the Mio Body Brush), which will help detox and invigorate. Then seal all the goodness in with an amazing body oil after you step out the water. The NUXE Huile Prodigieuse smells amazing and sinks straight into the skin for a luminous, healthy finish.

    Give yourself a DIY Facial

    There are incredible options available for giving your skin a real treat at home. One of our favourite splurges has to be the Ole Henriksen Power Peel Kit Pods. This is a 3 step facial treatment inspired by professional microdermabrasion treatments, which helps reveal smooth and radiant skin. It contains 6 sets of a scrub, a chemical exfoliant and a soothing mask, all in individual pods so you use the perfect amount for gorgeous skin.
    If you’re on the lookout for a more affordable alternative, try the Dr. Hauschka Clarifying Face Care Kit, which contains everything you need for a real pamper, from cleansing to treatment masks.

    Try a Gel Manicure

    For a long-lasting, spa-worthy mani-pedi, invest in a home Gel Manicure Set. Gel nails last substantially longer than your usual polish, plus it leaves nails with that glossy sheen that we covet from the salon. With the Red Carpet Manicure Gel Polish Starter Kit you get everything you need to give yourself a salon finish at home, from the LED light to the right topcoats. Plus there are a huge number of shades to choose from on site.
    If you’re not quite ready to invest in a full kit, try the cheat’s method and use the Lottie London SO GEL Topcoat over your usual polish for that extra glossy finish.
