Are you tempted to go to the spa but too lazy to step out of the house? Why not create your own personal spa at home?
The hustle and bustle of everyday life coupled with long working days call for a relaxing spa experience. But how about you save the cost of the salon by creating an at home spa in your personal bathroom?
For those of you wondering how to go about that, it's quite simple. All you have to do is set the scene to make sure your environment is comfortable enough to relax your senses.
Room temperature is key
Number one step for this would be to ensure the room temperature you’re at is easy and cosy.
Pick a room that has no distractions or outside noises that could interrupt the entire unwinding experience. Make sure you get rid of excessive clutter and toiletries in the room. These will distract you from clearing your mind.
Always make yourself comfortable. From soft bath maths to furry bathroom slippers, it’s the little things that create that spa touch.
Light up some Candles
Candles can actually set the mood for creating a spa treat in the privacy of your bathroom. so light up some candles of your favourite fragrance. There are so many available to choose from. You will notice how the soft flickering light will aid you in switching off all noise and relax completely.
Soothing fragrance is all you need
You can also make use of a scent diffuser to enjoy a soothing scent at your home spa. Fragrances are a great mood booster and ideal for enhancing the sensual spa experience. You can also keep some nice scented flowers to add some colour to the room.
Dim Lighting does the job
The right lighting can also play a huge part in the ambience of your spa. So, you could go for dim bathroom lights along with some candles to set the mood for a relaxing atmosphere.
Warm towels are a luxury
Warm towels level up the spa experience creating a luxurious vibe. Even stepping out of the shower to find yourself wrapped up in warm towels is a little treat in itself. Heat up your towels in the tumble dryer for some time or just put them on the radiator to warm up.
Music calms the mind
Soothing music is always a mood lifter. As you focus on the gentle beat you get to clear your mind of all worries and just live in the moment.
Take your time as you prepare your bathtub. You must not go through a rushed shower, in fact turn it into a comforting ritual by adding an element of pampering to your skincare regime. Enjoy a great soak as you let your muscles relax after a stressful day.
There has been a rise in bath bombs and bath salts to create spa pools. These contain skincare ingredients like soaps, salts and oils, that release as they are immersed in water.
A great body wash
Get yourself a pampering body wash like the Choco vanilla body wash by Pinksoul. This luxurious skincare product with cocoa and vanilla essences caresses your skin leaving it smooth and soft.

Scrub your lips a bit
