What could be more luxurious and relaxing than a day at the spa getting pampered, preened and soothed in comfort? However, the only thing that isn’t relaxing about a day at the spa is the price. You would think that the spa robes they gave you to wear were made of gold thread with the amount that some spas charge! Also, the spa isn’t always open when you need it to be and sometimes it is difficult to get an appointment when you want to.
Instead of going to the spa, why not treat yourself to a relaxing day at home and perform your own spa treatments? You can get the same laid back and pampered feeling without the hassle and expense.
How to Have a Spa Day At Home – Spa Robes and All
Get the Gear
So once you have found a few free hours on a Sunday afternoon, it’s time to start treating yourself to a special spa day. The first step is to get together everything that you need, from luxurious terry spa robes to bath salts to deep conditioning hair treatment. You can order many of these items online, including the spa robes, if you don’t have time to shop for them. This is a great opportunity to try a new product that you have been curious about.
Set the Mood
The next step is to create a soothing atmosphere by lighting some scented candles, turning on your favorite mellow music and turning off your laptop and cell phone so that you will not be distracted. You can even light some incense or use essential oils for a relaxing scent.
Plan Your Treatments Strategically
If you are going to be giving yourself multiple spa treatments, think about the sequence of them logically. For example, painting your nails first and then trying to apply a deep conditioning treatment to your hair while they are still wet and sticky means that you will end up with nail polish in your hair. Remember that you have to apply the treatments to yourself, so think things through and always save your nails for last.
Last but not least, simply sit back and enjoy. Use a moisturizing facial cream, slice some cucumbers for your eyes and stretch out on your favorite chair in your spa robes… this day is totally for your complete rejuvenation.
