The Ultimate Guide to a Relaxing Spa Day at Home

We all need a little bit of relaxation and pampering from time to time, and what better way to do it than with a spa day at home? With the current pandemic, many of us are unable to visit our favorite spas, but that doesn't mean we can't enjoy the same luxurious experience in the comfort of our own homes. In this article, we'll explore some of the best ways to create a spa day at home, from DIY treatments to products that will help you relax and unwind. To start off your spa day, you'll want to create a relaxing atmosphere. Dim the lights, light some candles, and play some soothing music.

You can also add some essential oils to the mix for an extra dose of relaxation. Next, it's time for some DIY treatments. For a simple facial scrub, mix 1 tablespoon baking soda, 1 ¼ teaspoon water, and 2 drops essential oil (optional) in a small bowl until it becomes a liquid paste. Massage the face, neck, and décolleté area in an upward circular motion.

Then rinse and apply your favorite mask or moisturizer. This technique is ideal for all skin types, but it is not recommended more than twice a week. For an aromatherapy experience, try lighting a scented candle like the Project 62 Calm Lavender & Sage Wellness Candle or the Bath & Body Works Aromatherapy Chamomile Bergamot Candle. You can also use essential oils like ESPA's Tranquility range for a mini aromatherapy massage on your pressure points.

To give your hands and feet some extra TLC, try using a Pedi-Scrub with Sponge for Feet with Over 20 in Lemon Eucalyptus or Aveeno Repair Cica Foot Mask. Follow up with Soap & Glory Original Pink Heel Genius Foot Cream for extra hydration. For your hands, use a luxurious lavender foot balm and cover them with cozy microwave-heated faux leather ankle boots for a gift that both you and your feet will love. Finally, seal everything good with a self-made facial moisturizer that's worthy of any spa and so easy to make.

Plus, if you have the means, it's also a good time to think about spas in your neighborhood that have been affected by the coronavirus pandemic. When you can, you can revisit your favorite Mokara Spa and let them take care of every detail.
