Relaxing music, muffled light, steaming water – and your mind settles into another atmosphere and peaceful state. When the line between work-life balance becomes blurry, and the news gets more distressing, relaxing at the end of an intense day can seem complicated. You may have pictured yourself in a luxurious spa, but how about transporting into unwinding and rejuvenating oasis in your very own home?
Emulating spa treatment experience and making a spa-like atmosphere in your bathroom could give you more than escape after a long day. The benefits of bathtime in warm water with soothing aromas are endless. However, you don’t need expensive products or purchasing the whole mall. You can change your bathroom into a spa with just a handful of things. Let’s shed light on easy tips to create an ultimate spa destination in the comfort of your home.
Light Your Candles
Candlelight can help to bring a calming atmosphere as well. Place some candles all over the bathroom and add light around the fixtures of the sink and bathtub. Seeing as candles burn makes the calming environment and distracts you from unwanted thoughts.
Furthermore, aromatic candles might be able to bring a nice fragrance that relaxes a stressful mindset.
Surround Yourself In Softness
No one likes to use cold towels after a hot bath or shower, particularly during the winter. To maintain heat within your body, there is no better way than wrapping yourself up in comfy, warm towels after a prolonged session of soaking in a bathtub.
Whether it’s sumptuous or cotton plush towels, luxurious bath mats, cosy robes, or fluffy slippers – the bathroom is the perfect place to bring soft textures. They are also a necessity for any spa-evoking feeling in your bathroom and should be absorbent, lofty, and fast to dry.
You can enjoy the soft warmth within reach by placing a fresh stack of towels in a towel-warming drawer or towel-warming bars that are cheaper and can save more space in a bathroom.
Add a Bath Bomb
Taking a warm bath is one of the easiest, pleasant, and satisfying methods to fully unwind. It can also lead to more restful sleep, muscle soreness relief, as well as improved blood flow and circulation.
Slip into ultimate relaxation by dropping a sparkling bath bomb into a tube to create an atmosphere of a luxurious feel and add calming and relaxing scents. A bath bomb provides emollients and softeners to your bath’s water that can help to indulge and moisturise your skin. No matter what your skin type, the active components in bath bombs are typically formulated to pamper your skin and leave it soft and silky. As an added bonus, soothing aromas linger on your skin and help to drift off to sleep in a bed.
Bring Bathtub Caddy Tray
A bathtub caddy is an essential bathroom accessory that creates a place and easy access for all necessary things such as a glass of wine, a soothing tea, your favourite magazine, book, or bath accessories.
Such a simple addition takes your experience to a whole new level and adds convenience. If you currently haven’t got a bathtub tray, you are missing out on the enjoyable bathing experience and some serious spa vibes. It comes in different styles from reclaimed wood to lucite, making it simple to find one that suits your style sensibility and your bathroom.
Apply CBD Topicals
CBD, short for cannabidiol, is a major non-psychoactive compound found in Cannabis sativa plants and a potent antioxidant with anti-inflammatory, soothing and analgesic properties. It acts by improving the defence mechanism of the skin and its ability to regenerate. CBD can help to prevent drying of the skin, reduce damage to the skin and shorten the time of healing. Due to these properties, different topicals like CBD balm, cream, lotion and others can be suitable for relieving and eliminating various skin problems.
When you apply topical CBD products onto your skin, you will get relief in a localised area. Cannabidiol penetrates through the skin layers so that it can interact with receptors located throughout the body as a part of the vital endocannabinoid system. Therefore, using CBD cream during your home-spa session might help to diminish inflammation, ease pain and chronic aches. It is also beneficial for wrinkles and many skin conditions such as dryness, psoriasis, eczema and acne.
Treat Yourself To A Facial Massage
Self-massage is used for better circulation to give you a sculpted effect without hitting the face. The scaffolding of the face is made up of over 40 muscles, and the more you move them, the more tightened, lifted, and tone they become, just like the muscles in the body.
With a few key tools like a facial jade roller, sculptor roller, toner roller, or any gadgets you have, you can give yourself a spa-worthy face massage like your very own facialist while experiencing a good and relaxing time.
Since many people live a sedentary lifestyle, it has a negative impact on blood and lymph circulation, particularly if you are often pale, have cold hands and feet or tingling in your limbs, you can benefit from wellness practices that activate your circulation. Good blood flow is essential as it carries oxygen and crucial nutrients to every cell in the body, while the lymph system helps to remove waste products like bacteria and toxins.
At-home spa can’t be complete without the essential tools of the trade. Grab a bath brush, loofah or natural sea sponge to provide full-body exfoliation while lifting and toning problem body areas. Start massaging with a dry brush the tops of the feet and then upwards towards the heart to increase blood flow, elasticity, and stimulate collagen production in your skin. Make sure to spend additional time on areas that tend to be more problematic and motionless like the inner thigh as well as pay attention to body parts behind your arms and your back. Additionally, spend a few minutes by rubbing a body oil, lotion, or cream all over the places you just exfoliated.
