Booking in for a facial and massage is the ultimate way to relax, but many of us often struggle finding the time to head to our favourite spa for a pamper session.
Perhaps it’s time to think about how you can have a great spa experience in the comfortablility of your own home. With so many amazing products available these days, it’s a lot easier to achieve the same results, on your own and in your own time.
Here are some tips for that perfect at home spa experience.
Take the time
The secret to a great spa treatment at home is to find a time where you won’t be distracted or interrupted. Relaxation is the name of the game here, and you won’t be able to do that if you’re thinking about what else you have to do or worrying that someone is going to burst through the door.
Create the ambience
Turn down the lights, put on some quiet music and diffuse your favourite essential oil to create a warm and inviting space. You’ll feel an instant sense of relaxation and essential oils have added benefits dependent on the oil you choose. Try the Arbonne Rescue & Renew Essential Oil in lemon to lift your mood or peppermint to create an energising yet peaceful environment.
Soak away your stress
Whether it’s your feet or your whole body, having a soak is a great stress buster. Try adding a detox soak to the water to help remove surface impurities and cleanse the skin.
Don the mask
We all know we should do it but how many of us regularly use a face mask? Masks are important as they help to hydrate the skin, remove excess oils and provide a deeper cleanse. Apply to clean skin and then sit back and relax until the mask is dry. To help remove it, place warm, damp towels on your face and allow them to soften the mask before wiping you face clean. Follow with your regular toner and moisturizer.
It’s not just your face that needs to be hydrated. At the end of your treatments make sure you moisturise and hydrate your body just like they would at a spa. Moisturize your skin from top to toe using a lotion or oil that is easily absorbed and then re-hydrate your body, internally, with water or herbal tea.
If you’re looking for a great set of products designed to rejuvenate your skin then try the Arbonne Rescue and Renew collection. Sustainably sourced and inspired by ancient Ayurvedic spa practices, the Rescue & Renew collection includes essential oils, and a range of luxurious detoxing spa products.
