A trip to the spa is more than just a nice luxury; for many of us, it has become an essential part of our wellness routines. However, with spas closed for the foreseeable, people need to find a way to find relaxation at home and where better than the bathroom? With a touch of creativity, you can create your own spa experience in the comfort of your own home.
A bit of pampering is more important than ever right now, and we’ve got everything you need to create that luxurious spa day atmosphere in your bathroom.
Soak In The Tub
A hot bath at the end of a long day is a ritual we all know and love, but when you want to create that spa experience, there are a few ways to upgrade your tub time. Bubble baths and essential oils are lovely additions to any bath, but if you’re feeling the strain from a busy day, you might need a little more.
Magnesium flakes are a great way to relax and ease tension in your body for the perfect spa feeling. As the flakes dissolve in the water, the magnesium is absorbed into the skin, replenishing the body.
Magnesium is essential for all-round wellbeing relieves muscle tension and supports healthy skin and bones. If you don’t have magnesium flakes or don’t like the idea of soaking in the essential mineral, you can get all the same benefits with One Nutrition Ocean Mag.
Make Your Own Facemask
An at-home spa wouldn’t be complete without a DIY facemask, and luckily, we have just the thing. For a super easy, natural and chemical-free facemask, choose Manuka Honey. This special type of honey is created from nectar from the Manuka plant, which is native to New Zealand. It has powerful antioxidant, antibacterial, antiviral, and anti-inflammatory properties and has been used in medicine for years.
When used as a relaxing facemask, Manuka Honey can leave skin clear, smooth and glowing. Anti-inflammatory properties reduce redness and irritation, whilst antibacterial properties naturally kill bacteria that causes acne. Manuka Honey is a super simple, one ingredient facemask. Spread over clean skin and leave for twenty minutes, then wash off with a cloth and warm water.
Use A CBD Elixir
CBD has been rising in popularity over recent years, as more and more people begin to understand the benefits it can bring. It is derived from cannabis plants but is not an intoxicant. Instead, it works to relax and promote wellness.
CBD has been hailed for easing anxiety and reducing stress; however, one use you may not know is with dental hygiene. CBD Elixir Mouthwash and Toothpaste can be a great extra touch to your spa-trhoom experience. Helping to support strong, healthy gums and teeth and ensuring fresh breath, this ensures your spa experience will have every inch of you feeling clean and preened!
Focus On Skin Care
After a day at the spa, your skin should be left revived and glowing, and an at-home spa day shouldn’t be any different. Use the Mikka range of products to overhaul your skin, and you can tailor your skincare to the time of day.
Mikka products are mindfully developed and inspired by nature, and the whole range uses CBD and natural oils for optimal skincare.
In the morning, start with CBD Mikka Lifting Serum which is a highly potent anti-ageing concoction and then treat your skin to the CBD Mikka Collagen Day Cream, which promotes radiance and youthfulness.
Follow it up with, and CBD Mikka Revitalizing Lip Gloss, which is a powerful lip treatment disguised as a gloss. At nighttime, choose CBD Mikka Firming Night Cream for rejuvenated and nourished skin. We also love their Soothing Serum, Eye Roller and PH Lip Balm.
Drink Plenty Of Water
Staying hydrated during your spa experience is essential and will actually help improve the effects of your DIY treatments. Flushing your body with plenty of water helps to remove toxins and other nasties from your body.
Being properly hydrated also keeps you relaxed and feeling calm during your at-home spa experience. Pop in a slice of cucumber or lemon to add to your luxury spa day.
Treat Yourself To A Beauty Smoothie
Nourishing your body isn’t all about treatments and products. What you put into your body can have just as much impact on your skin. Treat yourself to a beauty-boosting smoothie and give your body everything it needs to leave you glowing and healthy.
Choose your favourite smoothie flavour, and add an extra dose of goodness with Udo’s Oil Blend. It is packed full of Omega 3, 6 and 9, all healthy fats that help regulate the skins oil production and reduce breakouts. Another excellent addition to a healthy smoothie is Udo’s Choice Beyond Greens which offers complete nutrition including vitamins, proteins and enzymes.
So, let your home be your sanctuary this winter, with some pampering me-time to lift your spirits and help you feel good both inside and out.
