Sometimes you just need a spa day, or two, in order to get through the week. It may not be feasible to head to an actual day spa, and that can be a pricey trip as well, but you can have your own luxurious spa time from your own home, and you can even invite friends or family to join you.
Relaxation is important for stress relief, and a home spa day can bring you much relaxation. You just need a few things on hand in order to plan your stress free day. If you have some friends that could use a day of relaxation, invite them over.
You can swap shoulder massages, and you can have each guest bring an ingredient from their own kitchen or pantry to help make some great homemade skin care items. You might even want to paint each other’s nails or give each other a pedicure. It’s all in the name of friendship and stress relief.
Find The Right Tone
If you want to relax you need to set the right tone. That means shutting off the television, giving the kids something to keep them quietly busy, and turning off your phone. This isn’t a time to be checking Facebook.
Set the mood for relaxation with some relaxing music. There are many different genres of music that lend themselves well to stress relief. Try some inspiring celtic music or some classical tunes, among others, to create an atmosphere perfect for relieving anxiety.
Get The Right Ingredients
The ingredients for your spa day don’t just include music, but it also includes specific ingredients, massage oils, facial care items, and anything else it takes to complete whatever spa activities are on your list to complete. Make sure you also have some delicious fruit infused water on hand so everyone stays hydrated.
Ingredients like honey, strawberries, buttermilk, and oatmeal can all do amazing things for your skin. Oatmeal is anti-itch, honey is softening, and strawberries have a great astringent effect. Have each of your guests bring one of these items, or their own favorite facial mask or cleanser. You can find recipes on Pinterest as well.
You can also purchase products that are made with great ingredients, like coconut oil. Look for organic products and don’t be afraid to check out reviews.
Invite The Right People (Or Do It Alone)
You can have a spa day alone, but it can be fun to invite your girlfriends to enjoy the relaxing time with you. Invite friends that love taking care of themselves and will be happy to participate in pedicures, manicures, facials and massages!
Having a home spa day can be a very fun way to care for your health, your skin, and your hair. Don’t let stress take over, enjoy a spa day anytime you can.
