In the winter time, we really need to look after our health and wellbeing.

Although spa treatments are designed to nourish and condition your skin, the ritual of massaging and indulging in some "me-time" is actually super holistic and relaxing.

We have put together our exclusive guide for creating your own zen-like atmosphere from the comfort of your own bathroom, and indulging in some personalised spa treatments.

Detox your hair with a mask

Taking care of our locks is something we do on a daily basis, but it's important to detox them like we do our skin.

Daily cleansing and conditioning can lead to product build-up, so it's important to use a naturally detoxifying scrub that will rid hair of all the impurities that can leave it looking flat.

The ESPA Pink Hair and Scalp Mud Mask is made with red and white clays', which is what gives it its powder pink hue.

It helps to deeply cleanse the hair without compromising on its softness. Excuse us while we start running a bath to begin our winter spa ritual...

Use warming products

When in the spa, you rarely ever feel a cold oil or body butter touch your skin. That's because warming products naturally make you feel more relaxed and calm.

Try incorporating a massaging candle into your bodycare routine for a nourishing at-home spa treatment. The Oskia Skin Smoothing Massage Candle works by heating up once lit, and then once it hits a warm enough temperature, can be poured all over the body for an easy massage routine.

Invest in high-tech skincare

If you can't get into a spa to have a 60 minute facial, give your skin a mini workout with the Sarah Chapman Skinesis Facialift.

It has unique nodules, which when rolled over the skin help stimulate blood-flow and circulation to detoxify and kick-start lymphatic drainage.

The result is that more oxygen is pumped into the skin for a plumped-up, youthful and healthy glow.

Say hello to sheet masks

The easiest way to replicate that spa treatment glow at home is to use a nourishing sheet mask.

While facials tend to take around 60 minutes in a professional spa, you're not likely to have the time, products or energy to perform the full routine on yourself.

Because a sheet mask is so concentrated in its formula, it is the quickest way to giving yourself your healthiest and dewiest complexion.

Our favourite one for an immediate improvement on skin tone and texture is the Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Concentrated Recovery PowerFoil Mask. It's loved by Victoria Beckham, and we find it best to use when skin looks a little puffy and under the weather. So generally, all throughout winter.
