Spa days, we are truly missing your company and your ability to keep us sane. Those regular visits to get a full-body or a mani-pedi made a massive difference to our wellbeing. There’s no denying that. However, just because we’re facing a pandemic, with no more spa days, doesn’t mean you can’t create your own spa-like experience. What’s better is you get to do this in your own hot tub.

More importantly, let’s not forget why we have Sundays. They’re there for some much-needed TLC and rest. So take the opportunity to recreate those much-missed spa days. You can make these relaxing days count by pampering yourself with DIY beauty products whilst you enjoy a soak in the tub. It’s only going to happen if you dedicate ONE day to self-care every week. Creating spa days at home is a perfect way to achieve the zen feeling you’ve been trying to find. These are mad times after all.

Everyone needs some time for themselves, a bit of peace and quiet. Whether you’re stuck inside at home, working at home, or an essential worker. This virus has certainly put us all under a lot of stress. Therefore, it is very important we find ways to release some stress, even when we are cooped up inside. Sometimes, exercising or watching Netflix just doesn’t make the cut. This is why we want to share these top tips to help you create your very own spa days in the comfort of your own bathtub.

Luckily, there are lots of choices on the market today that can easily help create a spa-like experience. Know how to find the right goodies, and soon you’ll be having a soothing and relaxing experience in your own bathroom. Besides, nothing feels better than finally taking good care of yourself.

Spa Days In The Comfort Of Your Own Tub

Most people will say that creating a spa-like experience at home is just not the same as the real thing. But that’s where the mood comes in. After all, enjoy spa days because of the ambiance and atmosphere, not just the actual treatments. So, what does this mean? It means if we’re going to do this at home, we need to do it properly.

The only difference between your bathtub and the spa is the mood. This means we need to create that environment and ensure it’s going to make us relax. Try thinking about your senses, and include aspects that will stimulate all of them. You could play your favorite tune, dim the lights and burn a fragrance candle.

Spa days are effective because they include different tools to keep you stimulated. Try to include as many things that’ll enhance your experience as possible. What about some Lavender essential oils, or a good cup of tea, a book, or maybe even a glass of wine? Then don’t be shy with your use of beauty products, try natural or DIY ones. Keep them all nearby, so you can grab and use them as you enjoy your spa days in your own tub.

Beauty experts suggest changing the texture of the beauty products you use. Doing this can greatly improve the quality of your bath. Swap out body wash gels for bath oils or scrubs that will give a different feel on the skin. Make sure to massage products in with long, circular motions to fully enjoy every texture.

Set The Mood

This is an integral part of creating your own spa days. You want to make the bathroom smell divine because the scent will lighten your mood, increase relaxation and reduce anxiety. Adding some candles will help create a calm atmosphere and add a touch of luxury and sophistication.

Maybe you’ve got the candles, but they’re not enough to calm your gritty, stressed self down. You could try using a muscle aid to unwind the body or an immunity boost with some natural botanicals or aromatherapy. These essential oils are easy to store because they’re small and compact, so you can keep them neatly in your bathroom cupboard.

Make Your Bath Steamy

Good quality spa days pay attention to detail. You should do the same. We know this takes some work from your side, but it’ll be so worth it in the end. Besides, if you prepare beforehand then it’ll get simpler to create every time. It helps to make the bath extra steamy. This is so beneficial to helping aches, pains and your day at home [longevity live]

Don’t forget to add in a great bath soak, because you’ll find it difficult to get out. Try to find a soak that’s rich in vitamins. Bath salts help reduce the water retention that bloats breasts, tummies, or ankles while it soothes achy muscles. Spa days help relieve lots of tension, but so will a really steamy bath, especially during a pandemic.

Try turning on your shower as hot as it goes. Add some fresh eucalyptus over the showerhead and deeply inhaling for five to 10 minutes. This will release all the tension you have accumulated after a long, stressful day. Plus, it’ll release essential oils from the eucalyptus plant, which can clear nasal congestion and inflammation related to sinus and bronchial infections.

Don’t Have Beauty Products For Home Spa Days?

That’s totally okay, we don’t expect you to go out and spend a fortune on new beauty products. Just make your own, they’re better anyway since they’re natural. It’s important to look after your skin and this is an integral part of why spa days are effective.

DIY Face Maskspa days at home [longevity live]

To make your own face mask, just go and raid the fridge or the kitchen. Generally, you’ve got everything you need.

Give this two-ingredient mask with lactic acid and vitamin C a try. It will hydrate, soften and brighten skin.

To make it, mix 2 tbsp of plain yogurt (double cream will have a creamier texture) with 2 tbsp of fresh lemon juice.

Apply the mixture to the face using a clean flat foundation brush for an even spread and leave on until the mask dries. Rinse off with warm water.

How simple is that?

Make Your Own Bath Salts

Spa days generally consist of beautifully made hot tubs with fragrances, oils, and of course infused bath salts. Moreover, when you head out to buy some bath salts at the store, they’re generally quite pricey. It’s much better to make your own. You can prepare them with the ingredients you want and the scent you enjoy most.

Homemade bath salts will fill the room with an aromatic scent and ease your tired muscles. It’s important to make them coarse. Therefore, all you will need is salt, scented soap, essential oils, or lemon juice.
