With many people having shelter at home orders and other practicing social distancing, I think it’s safe to say this is an anxious time for us, worldwide. There’s lots to worry about and not a lot of opportunities to decompress. Since spas are considered nonessential and they are all shut down, I thought I would share how to have a spa day at home!
First, if you’re a mom, get hubby to watch your kids or wait until bed time. We love our children, but kids aren’t super relaxing 🤪
Once they are occupied, it’s time to set the mood!
Candles with lavender, eucalyptus, rosemary, peppermint are great at helping you relax! I’ve put together some great options for you! A couple of the candles are from Target. Why I went there specifically is because if you use your Red debit card you get free 2 day shipping! I do think shipping times are wonky right now because of the pandemic but definitely something to remember for the future. Amazon is not your only option for fast, free shipping!
Take a Bath:
Now that we’ve set the mood, it’s time to run a bath. There are so many bath bombs on the market but PomBoms are my favorite! They are packed with Pomifera Oil, with is rich in antioxidants and Omega-6. These ingredients help make smooth, soft, and healthy looking skin and will leave you extra glowy. There are 4 scents to choose from, in this situation, lavender is make favorite to help relax!
I love doing face masks! I do think it’s important to note that all face masks are not created equal. Everyone has a different skin type so it doesn’t make sense for everyone to use the same mask. It would not be good if someone with sensitive skin that breaks out often was to use the wrong masks.
I personally have regular to dry skin and I love the mask, Skin Polish! It’s a gentle exfoliant and a mask. It smells heavenly, just like lemons, but don’t eat it! It doesn’t taste as good as it smells 🙈 Its all natural. The exfoliant is Jojoba Beads and then oils from Olives, Lemon, and Cypress restore and protect your skin. Can you tell I’m geeking out over this one? The way I use it is a couple times a week I wash my face, then while my face is still damp I massage the mask on for about 30 seconds to exfoliate my skin. I then let it sit for 15-20 minutes, or whenever my show is over 😉
If you have sensitive and acne prone skin, I recommend Masque of Zen. It’s actually an acne fighting mask that is made it’s Montana Clay, Tea Tree Oil, Cinnamon Bark, and other goodies that act together to help the major causes of skin imbalance. When you first start this mask, to help with acne (it’s great for teen acne and adult acne) use it 3-4 times a week for 2 weeks to help clear out your skin. Then go down to once or twice a week.
Since we are not able to see our hair stylists right now, idk about you but I’m starting to get some major split ends! I searched on Amazon for hair masks and this Argan Oil Mask had 4.5 stars with over 8,000 reviews, and was affordable. I decided to try it. Disclaimer, I’ve only used it once but my hair felt smoother and less dry after my first use!
I hope that this post gave you some ideas for how to get a little self care in at home.
This too shall pass. Love you guys,
