Everything You Need For An At-Home Spa
Life isn’t meant to be filled only with appointments, deadlines, and a never-ending to-do list. It is designed to be fun, fulfilling, and even relaxing. For self-care and pampering, you might not always have the time to head to the spa’ – or might simply be in need of a quick dose of “me time”. Below are just a few things every lovely lady should keep stocked at home, to ensure she can pamper herself to perfection.
A Massage Roller
Massage rollers are all the rage right now, and one thing that makes them so great is that they can be used solo or with a partner. Choose from hand-held roller balls you can use to pinpoint and target a localised area, and also massage rolling sticks that can cover a larger area at once. While there is nothing that compares to a hands-on massage, massage rollers are the next best thing.
The Perfect Scent
Aromatherapy can be utilised to do everything from relaxing your mind and body to uplifting you, helping you focus, or even getting you in the mood. To keep things natural, search for essential oil brands whose oil you can apply to any room diffuser or a soy or beeswax candle brand that utilises essential oils for their fragrance. Avoid synthetic fragrances that may smell good, but are often toxic, and can even cause headaches and respiratory problems.
Comfy Cosy Bed And Bath Attire
From memory foam slippers to high thread count sheets, satin pj’s, comfy flannel and plush bathrobes and towels. Invest in the comfy cosy bed and bath attire that will help you to relax and unwind.
Luxury Cosmetics And Skin-care
From rich and creamy body butter, silky body lotions, facial masks, hydrating serums, luxe lipstick, and spa-worthy mani/pedi supplies, you can pamper yourself a little bit every day!
Elevate Your Bath Products
Everyone requires a bar of soap or shower gel for their daily shower, but why settle for over the counter? Instead, upgrade to authentic handmade French bath products – made from nature. Select the bars and blends that address specific beauty concerns, or select by the mood-specific or enticing aroma you crave. Don’t forget bubble bath or bath salts with your desired essential oils.
Soothing sounds can go a long way in positively influencing your mood. Depending on what you are trying to achieve, you can choose from:
- Sounds of nature
- Classical music
- Instrumental music
- Binary beats
- Or your favourite uplifting music
- A Place To Meditate
Most spas have a relaxing seating area for you to enjoy before, after or in-between your treatments, so why not create a similar space at home? This could be as simple as investing in a plush recliner, ergonomic chair, or even a comfy yoga mat that can be rolled out in a peaceful spot for meditation and deep breathing.
A Refreshing Beverage
The choice is entirely up to you, but during your mini spa session, enjoy a glass of your favourite wine, a cup of herbal tea, fruit infused water or even champagne.
Don’t Wait Until You’re Too Stressed To Unwind
Instead of waiting until you are stressed to the max to indulge in self-care, pamper yourself a little bit each day or at least once a week. This will help to keep your mind and body balanced, and will keep the stress at bay.
