Everyone deserves a little pampering at times to unwind, relax and destress. This is certainly true in the current climate for most people. But what do you do if you cannot visit a hotel spa currently to achieve this? The perfect answer is to recreate the whole spa experience at home. This is not as hard as it sounds and does not need to cost lots of money. By the time you have finished, you will have your very own sanctuary from the world.
But just how can you recreate the authentic spa experience at home?
Make bath times special
Visiting a spa is as much about the atmosphere created as anything else. A big part of this is the scents which are used to set the right tone. This is a simple tip you can borrow for bath times when setting up your own home spa. Try sprinkling in some delicious smelling bath salts or gorgeous essential oils into the water. The exact scent to use is a personal choice as we all like different things. Many people though will choose things like relaxing camomile or fragrant sandalwood oils. This simple step really helps to revamp your bath times and take you to a tranquil, peaceful place.
Use candles in your home spa
Turning your home into a spa is often down to the little things. Lighting candles when you are relaxing in a hot bath or on your bed is another great example. The most obvious benefit is the gorgeous aroma which scented candles release to help you chill. Candles also give off a romantic, flickering light which helps to destress you. With a huge range of choice, using candles will transform your mood instantly.
Go for a DIY facial, exfoliating session or pedicure
We all know that spas use beautiful products in their treatments - but this alone is not how they appear so luxurious. To get the true spa feel at home, you need to invest in top-quality linens and accessories. These will not only look amazing in your home but also feel awesome when you use them. The Bliss towels we stock are a great example. They are ultra-soft and made from 100% cotton for a truly decadent feel.
Of course, relaxing in a hot bath or reclining on your bed is not all that going to a spa is about. Many people love the refreshing and relaxing treatments on offer too. Facials are always popular, so why not treat yourself to one at home? There are some great masks you can buy in the shops or online now to help. When ready, apply it and then recline with a glass of wine and magazine as it works its magic.
By the same token, pedicures are also popular spa treatments for many. To bring the spa to you, why not give your feet a treat? Even if you simply cut your nails, take off old varnish, rub some foot cream in and put new varnish on, you will feel a million dollars. Exfoliating is also a classic spa treatment and one that you can do at home with the right products. Our Spa Wash Mitt is a superb way to naturally exfoliate, without the need for abrasive peels.
Use luxurious linen and accessories
We all know that spas use beautiful products in their treatments - but this alone is not how they appear so luxurious. To get the true spa feel at home, you need to invest in top-quality linens and accessories. These will not only look amazing in your home but also feel awesome when you use them. The Bliss spa towels we stock are a great example. They are a 450 gsm 100% cotton waffle towel range that is extremely lightweight resulting in less time required for washing and drying.
