These days, people are beginning to give self-care the attention that it deserves. After a long day of Zoom meetings, shepherding the kids between their extracurriculars, or inching down the highway in traffic, we all need a simple way to wind down. Is there a better way to end the day than a warm, luxurious bath? 

Whether due to the expense of professional spa treatments or the desire to stay in the comfort of home, more people are interested in home spa days than ever. Thankfully, it’s easier than you might think to transform your humble abode into a sumptuous spa. 

Below, we’ll give you the complete low-down on creating a luxury spa experience, right at home.

Why Have a Home Spa Day?

A home spa day, complete with an aromatic bubble bath, offers a broader array of perks than you might realize. A soothing spa experience can benefit your body and mind, taking you on a serene getaway from the day-to-day. 

By creating a spa experience at home, you can:

  • Alleviate stress

A home spa experience is one of the best stress-busters out there. A hot bath paired with soothing bubble bath scents can help you overcome tension and take a well-deserved break from daily stressors. Given that chronic stress is linked to a host of medical conditions, including heart disease and gastrointestinal problems, stress relief from your home spa will support your overall health.  

  • Promote high-quality sleep

We all need at least seven to nine hours of high-quality beauty rest each night. Having a home spa day can help you get a full night’s rest by promoting muscle relaxation, reduced blood pressure, and stress relief. 

  • Boost your mood

By creating a sense of relaxation, spa days stimulate the release of “feel good” brain chemicals, like dopamine and serotonin. These chemicals provide a natural yet powerful mood boost and can even help alleviate feelings of anxiety. 

  • Rejuvenate your skin

At-home spa products often contain nourishing and/or invigorating ingredients to enhance the health of your skin. So, while you’re winding down in the tub, your bubble bath products will be working hard to leave you with smooth, supple skin. 

How To Create Your Home Spa Experience

Home Spa Products

A DIY spa day has become the preferred option for relaxation when compared to an appointment at a spa center. Not only are home treatments far less expensive than the conventional alternatives, but they also can be tailored to your preferences.

Our top tips for creating your luxury home spa experience include:

Take a Break From Your Devices.

Keeping a close eye on your messages, email, and social media can make it difficult to truly relax. So, for an at-home spa experience, we recommend going offline. Place all of your devices in a different room and save the TV for another time – just like your handheld devices, the TV emits blue light that can disrupt your sleep. 

Put Aside Your To-Do List. 

Worrying about responsibilities or outstanding items on your to-do list can quickly derail your home spa day. So, before settling into relaxation, ensure that you’ve addressed all of your tasks and responsibilities for the day.

For busy parents, home spa days are often best spent while the kids are at a sleepover, on a field trip, or already put to bed. You’ve earned a few hours of me-time to refresh, relax, and restore. 

Consider Dry Brushing. 

If you’re looking to unwind and achieve healthier skin in the process, consider dry brushing. This simple (and trendy) at-home skin treatment involves using a special brush with coarse bristles to gently exfoliate the skin, encourage circulation, and help you reach a new level of relaxation. 

The best time to dry brush is right before diving into a warm bubble bath. This ensures that any dead skin cells loosened with the brush are washed away, leaving you with brighter, softer skin. 

Create a Soothing Environment. 

For a calming at-home spa day, ambiance is key. Before getting started, make sure that your makeshift spa room is clean and decluttered. As people often say, a cluttered room is a sign of a cluttered mind. But, with an organized room, your mind can be at peace.

Further elevate the environment by lighting a candle and turning on your favorite album. Then, get to work on the bath!

Take Your Bath to The Next Level.

No home spa day is complete without a warm, perfumed bath. Simply taking a bath can soothe sore muscles, open up your pores, and significantly reduce your stress levels. Bubble bath, bath salts, and body oils are all excellent options to fast-track your home bath to professional spa standards. 

When selecting the perfect bath products for your home spa, consider the fragrance. Scents are highly personal and often nostalgic. In fact, scents can immediately evoke a vivid memory or emotion, more so than your other senses. 

So, use the power of scents to your advantage on your home spa day! Whether you want a deeply relaxing scent, like lavender, or an energizing aroma, like citrus, you can find bath products to suit your preferences. 

Along with your go-to bubble bath, make sure that all of your favorite self-care products are within reach of the tub. We recommend a luscious body oil, rich moisturizer, hair mask, and, of course, a classic face mask. There’s no better time than a home spa day to indulge your skin and hair in deep, nourishing hydration. 

Taking a warm bath opens up your pores, meaning that any product you slather on will absorb more effectively. So, your home spa experience is an ideal time to target skin concerns including blemishes, dark spots, and fine lines.
