How to create a luxury spa experience at home

Indulging yourself on a regular basis is vital. We all need some “me time” to re-center. But what if you cannot afford the expensive spa treatments? Here are a few tips on how to create a luxurious spa at Home.

You need to select your room and make sure you can create a sanctuary without being disturbed. Try to disconnect from your all tech devices. Research has shown that the benefits of disconnecting far exceeds the thoughts and potential disadvantages of not being connected at all.

Set the mood with scented candles, lighting and relaxing music.

BEFORE YOU START

Start your treatment with some lemon & cucumber infused water. The mix of a hot shower and drinking water helps to dilate your blood vessels, which lowers your blood pressure.

Before you jump in your shower or your calming bath, eliminate dead skin by using an all-natural brush. In circular, upward motions, brush all over your body to make your skin feel baby soft. After you’ve brushed, rinse off all the dead skin in the tub.

RESTORE

I am a big fan of anything that will make your skin soft. I always loved “And Other Story” scrubs especially the Sirocco Sands but I have to say the Madapollam* Body Scrub was a wonderful surprise.

Smoothing sugar body scrub enriched with cottonseed oil high in vitamin E, polishes skin to a silken texture and it only costs £5 during this summer sale! It is seriously good!

End your shower with a cold rinse. Not only will it increase circulation and improve your mood, but it is also good for your skin and hair, as it closes the pores on your skin to keep dirt from getting in.

When you are done, remember to lightly pat dry your skin with a clean, soft towel to prevent dry skin. Your skin is the largest organ on your body!

Finally, remove your make-up with a double duty cleanser and toner. Devoré Cleansing Lotion smells incredible well and will leave your skin feeling fresh, toned and looking radiant.

When you walk into a spa, you always notice how it smells so amazing. To recreate this opulent experience I highly recommend The Bohemian Candle by The Nomad Society especially if you need some TLC.

Very feminine and elegant it is the perfect scent to pamper yourself and relax completely. This scent is warm and floral with notes of just picked jasmine and heart tones of honeysuckle.

The Nomad Society’s candles are entirely made of natural soy wax, 100% cotton wicks and hand poured into amber glass jars. So it is good for everyone!

Choose your bathroom textile well with soft comfy towels like the” big wafle” or the wellness towel from the Organic Company.

NOURISH

Carita Biological Mask is an anti-ageing cream mask, with a cashmere texture, leaving the skin divinely soft, radiant and revitalised. I love it!

I recommend the Supreme Wrinkle Solution eye Patch, infused with hyaluronic acid. This gel eye mask is very refreshing with extreme decongestive properties that instantly helps to reduce signs of fatigue. After just 10 minutes, circles and dark lines appear faded.

A highly targeted beauty routine for an immediate boost to the eye area, revealing perfectly rested eyes.

Finish your routine with a rich and cocooning cream to moisturise your skin. My all time favourite is the Carita  “Crème révélatrice dermeté”, a firming and tightening cream for the body.

Powerful active ingredients encourage the synthesis of the main components of the dermis and limit the degradation factors responsible for a slackening of the skin.

Music also plays a very important role in our relaxation, so find something that works for you.

Here is a little selection that might help.
