Steps to the Ultimate Spa Day
1. Set The Tone
First, start with getting everyone out of the house or at least settled in a quiet activity like watching a movie. Then create a spa oasis in your bathroom. Some simple music and create the smell of a spa. Eucalyptus or lavender create the relaxing spa smell to melt your stress away. Lighting some candles helps set the mood too.
2. Get Ready to Relax
Start with a great face mask. Take a look these Face Mask52 natural face masks to find the perfect one for your skin. Then create a nice warm bath to start your relaxation day. Not too hot, but enough to relax your muscles. Make a batch of refreshingspa water to stay hydrated. Go ahead and make a big batch to keep in the fridge for after.
3. Get Your Skin Ready
Then start with exfoliating and moisturizing your skin at the same time. With a good sugar scrub. The top two cleansing oils I would recommend would be Tea Tree and lavender. Add these about 5-10 drops to make a three in one sugar scrub, exfoliating, moisturizing and cleansing scrub. I like things that are multi-purpose. Don’t you?
4. Bath Bomb
Now add your favorite bath bomb to your relaxing warm bath. This is the fun part where you can experiment a little with essential oils based on your mood or the mood you want to create. Add about 5-10 drops of oil to your bath bomb using these simple recipes. Lavender and Eucalyptus are great for relaxing, Peppermint and Eucalyptus for energizing, Wintergreen for sore muscles or Tangerine for more focus.
If you don’t have any bath bombs on hand or just don’t have time to make any, then try these homemade bath salts with similar ingredients without the fizz. These are great in a pinch.
5. Lock In The Moisture
Now it is time to keep all that moisture in your face and skin. This all natural face moisturizer is perfect for creating a glow and really soft skin for your face. I just love it and my skin feels so soft and smooth.
