Looking for a Spa on a Budget? Use my Top Tips on How to Bring the Spa to your Bathroom!
Everyone should take time out of their busy lives to relax and unwind. You may be a parent, a business owner, student or full-time worker who requires some ‘me’ time, but time and money shouldn’t get in the way of ultimate relaxation. Who doesn’t love a blissful spa retreat? (I sure do!) But sometimes it’s not that easy to book a spa package, pack a spa bag and off you go! So why not bring the spa to your home? And I don’t mean to purchase an outdoor Jacuzzi and build an indoor sauna (if you can – I say go for it!), however, I mean, turn your bathroom into a spa for 2hrs of ultimate bliss! I explain how this can be done in 5 simple steps.
1. Light a Candle
Light your favorite scented candle to create a relaxing ambiance – this will set the mood and create a spa-like feel. (Take care when lighting candles and ensure it’s in a safe place.)
2. Run a Warm Bath
Soak in a warm bath filled with your favorite bath bomb, essential oils, bubble bath or bath salts. (Bring a bottle of water to keep you hydrated.)
3. Apply a Face Mask
Apply your favorite face mask. I love the ELEMIS Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm, which can be used as a cleanser and face mask. When creating my spa at home – I use this balm as a mask leaving it on my face for 20 minutes. (This mask contains luxurious Rose and Mimosa waxes that are infused with nourishing Elderberry, Starflower Optimega™ oils and supercharged with anti-aging algae, Padina Pavonica. The Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm can be removed with a warm damp cloth, and your skin is left glowing, smooth and nourished (it smells incredible too).
4. Mindfulness Meditation
Mindfulness meditation is a great way to relax the mind. It involves being still in silence and paying attention to thoughts, the sensations of breathing/ your body, sounds and bringing your attention back whenever the mind starts to wander.
5. Massage Tool
Massaging tools are great for easing knots and tension we carry in the back/ body. I use a tennis ball as my massage tool (a recommended tip from my yoga practitioner) – I gently rest my back against the ball and move in circular motions to work the knots. Apply pressure that is comfortable for you and spend a few minutes working the top, middle and lower back area.
