You deserve an at-home spa day, and here’s how to do it

Deep breathe – if you’ve been feeling a little off kilter these days, you’re not alone. With the current news cycle spinning a million miles a minute, it’s all too easy to feel overwhelmed or anxious. As we navigate the new normal of staying at home and practicing social distancing, there’s never been a better time to relax, reset and pamper yourself with a well-deserved at-home spa day.

From lighting aromatic candles to establish a sense of zen, to nourishing your complexion with a potent new skincare product, there are endless ways to pamper yourself from head to toe. Here’s how to unwind without ever stepping foot outside of your home.

Set the mood

Now that you’re undoubtedly spending more time at home than ever before, take a moment to evaluate the vibe. Excess clutter can create emotional chaos, which is exactly what we don’t want for an at-home spa day. Declutter, dim the lights and create an inviting and orderly space.

With that in mind, wrap yourself up in a cozy robe or slip into a pair of luxe pajamas and pour yourself some decadent hot tea.

A spa-like vibe is easily enhanced with a soothing scent wafting throughout your house or apartment. Allow yourself a few precious moments to breathe deeply and let it all out.

About face

An at-home spa day starts with radiant skin, so wash your face thoroughly with a cleanser that works for you.

Next, apply a face mask of your choice, sit back and soak in these precious minutes of bliss.

As for face masks, consider any mud mask loaded with vitamin E and antioxidants.

Rinse off with luke warm water.

All hands on deck

Your hands are likely dry and cracking from excessive hand washing, so you’ll want to nourish them back to health, too.

You can moisturise them with a fragrance-free cream once or twice a day.
