Taking care of yourself and implementing daily beauty routines has never been easier with all of the advancements in the cosmetics and hygiene industries. You have the option to visit the spa or create a spa like atmosphere at home. You might find yourself a bit too busy to go to a spa regularly or you simply might not have enough wiggle room left in your budget for spa treatments. Don’t worry about that because there are a lot of things you can do at home for a fraction of the cost that will enhance your hygiene and well-being.
First, create a spa environment in your bathroom. It is best to start with a clean slate. Clean your bathroom. Wipe all surfaces and mop the floors. A clean bathroom will make the entire at home spa treatment process more special. Diffuse some essential oils to create a blissful aromatherapy treatment.
Popular Essential Oils Are:
- Citrus scents such as Lemon, Bergamot, Grapefruit, Lime and Sweet Orange
- Peppermint and Eucalyptus
- Lavender, vanilla and chamomile
Lavender will help create a calm and restful experience. Citrus scents such as Bergamot, lemon, lime, orange and grapefruit are exhilarating and awakening. Peppermint and eucalyptus help clear up the sinus passages and soothe aches and tension. Allow your essential oils to diffuse for a few minutes before you enter you at home spa retreat. If you are going to enjoy soaking in a bath to enhance your relaxation you can add a few drops of your favorite essential oils to ¼ to ½ a cup of Epsom salt. Allow the water in the tub to fill to the halfway point before you pour in your salt mixture. Do not pour directly into the running water; it can disrupt the essence of the oils.
Once you have created a relaxing environment you can begin focusing on other hygiene and well-being products to create a true spa environment. While in a relaxing bath you can do a few of these
Spa Treatments to Pass the Time:
- Relax with a facial mask on
- Dip hands in paraffin and allow them to rest while you relax
- Smother feet in vitamin E and Frankincense essential oil for healing and calming properties
Once you are done in the bath you should take an invigorating cool shower to enhance circulation and awaken your senses. While in the shower you can use something like a Shower Flosser to fully flush out your mouth and give you a fresh feeling. After your mouth is clean go ahead and use your favorite exfoliating scrub and body soap. Wash your hair with some scrumptious smelling shampoo and allow a deep conditioner or hair mask to soak into your hair before your final rinse off.
When you get out of the shower towel dry off and then rub on your favorite vitamin E infused lotion. Put some shine enhancing oil in your hair to treat any split ends and massage your favorite facial serum into your face. This entire pampering session will make you feel invigorated and fresh.
