How To Create The Perfect Spa Day At Home

How To Create The Perfect Spa Day At Home

 

Being a mom is one of the most rewarding experiences, but also one of the busiest. Do you remember the last time you sat down to enjoy a coconut oil hair mask, a  book in a bubble bath or hot cup of green tea with honey for more than a second? We didn’t think so — which is why we want to give all parents the gift of a well-deserved spa day right from home. 

 

As a parent, co-founder Jessica Alba knew moms and dads could use a home spa day to de-stress and unwind. “It’s nice to enjoy ‘me’ time with an eye mask, facial massage, or bubble bath to replenish and rejuvenate,” she says. 

Enjoy the soothing benefits of these exclusive sets, learn how to do a facial at home, and create a spa-like environment where you can relax and rejuvenate. In this step-by-step guide, we’ll help you create the perfect spa experience!

Light a Candle… or several

Nothing sets the tone of a spa day or spa night like dimming the overheads and lighting a candle. Before the home spa day activities commence, set the scene by lighting our aromatic hand-poured soy wax candle — the scent of myrrh promises to calm.

Soak in a Bubble Bath 

Looking to soak away the worries of the day? Treat yourself to a soothing bath and let all of your stress subside. To prep your bath, toss in some bath salts to help relax tense muscles, add a mineral-infused bath bomb to help you decompress, or simply add some scented bubbles. You can even pop some bubbly to pair with your bubble bath!

Steam Your Face

Using either the steam from your bath or the help of a vanity facial steamer, prep your pores before applying any facial products. Using a vanity steamer can help unclog pores, clear skin impurities, and bring moisture to your skin. By steaming your skin and clearing your pores, the next step of applying a face mask will be that more effective!

Apply a Face Mask

Now that your skin is clean and prepped, it’s time to apply a face mask. With so many types to choose from, how do you know which face mask to go with for your DIY spa day? If you feel like your somewhat oily skin has been acting up lately, opt for an activated charcoal detox face mask to help draw out those pesky impurities. If you feel like you have been experiencing rather dry skin that just needs a little pick me up, opt for a mask high in nourishing ingredients, including superfruits, vitamin E, and natural plant extracts. Made for all skin types, our Prime + Perfect Mask is the ultimate go-to if you are looking to soften skin texture and replenish the moisture it’s been in desperate need of. Whichever type of mask you choose to go with, make sure to read the instructions to ensure you leave the product on for the recommended amount of time. Oh, and don't forget the cucumber slices for your eyes!

Use a Body Scrub

While your face mask is soaking in, pamper the rest of your body to a sugar or sea salt scrub. Using a sugar or sea salt body scrub can help exfoliate dead skin cells and reveal a fresh layer of silky smooth skin. Achieving a healthy glow for your entire body is essential to maintaining the health of your skin. Once you have rinsed off the exfoliating scrub, evoke the luxurious spa experience by ending your shower or bath by dry brushing to help remove any lingering dead skin cells and stimulate blood flow. Following this step, use a nourishing body oil or body cream to lock in your skin's moisture. 

Lather Up With A Body Cream

Once you’re done soaking in the bathtub, apply a nutrient-rich body cream to help seal in the moisture of your skin. Gently massage the body cream to reveal beautifully soft, hydrated, and glowing skin! You can even use a massage tool such as a gua sha to help remove toxins and improve circulation throughout your body.

Don't Forget Your Face

Whether you have oily skin, dry skin, or a combination, be sure to follow up with natural, high-quality skincare products to keep you glowing for the days following your DIY spa day. Once you have cleansed your face of your chosen face mask, you can apply a facial toner or hydrating facial mist to help soothe the pH of your skin, a Vitamin C serum to help support a radiant complexion or an AHA serum and AHA cleanser to help with resurfacing, and a deep hydrating face cream to bring optimal nourishment to your skin. Don't forget to apply an under eye cream to ensure the delicate skin around the eye area is receiving the attention it deserves, as well.

Treat Your Hands

It seems like all we do is wash our hands these days, but for good reason. Between hand soap and hand sanitizer, our hands can tend to feel dehydrated. During your spa day, make sure to treat your hands to some TLC by first exfoliating, second applying an ultra-moisturizing hand cream, and lastly slipping your hands into lightweight cotton moisturizing gloves to seal in the softness. Let the hand cream soak in, and soon enough you’ll be saying goodbye to dry hands! 

These are just a few of the most essential steps to having the best spa day from home! However, a day full of relaxing and decompressing wouldn’t be complete without peaceful music, a glass of wine or bubbles, and a good read. 

“Just make sure your home spa treatment is after the kids are in bed,” she reminds — a must for having that zen moment you deserve full of spa water, bath salts, and a green tea sugar scrub.

We hope you pamper yourself this season (and beyond!).
