Do you wish to get healthy-looking and radiant skin? However, booking spa appointments and scheduling every work just so you can enjoy relaxing for a few hours becomes a bit of a hassle sometimes. Even so, it doesn’t mean that you should refrain yourself from getting a rejuvenating spa “at home.”
Yes, you read it right! In this article, you will learn how to give yourself the best quality spa at home.
But, before getting started, you must know that you don’t need any special products for this. Your regular skincare routine products will also work. So, you don’t have to worry about it.
Now, let’s begin!
- Create A Relaxed Atmosphere
First of all, you need to create a calm and relaxed atmosphere at home. It will help you get in the feel of a spa. To do this, you can use scented candles and music. The fragrance will create a calming aroma which will help in uplifting the mood.
In addition to this, you can also take a warm bath with Epsom salt. It will help in opening pores; thus preparing skin for the next step. However, if you don’t want to have a bath, just soak your feet in lukewarm water. As the feet have all the pressure points, it’ll help in destressing. Thus, creating a relaxed and pleasant mood.
- Skin Cleansing
After setting up the whole atmosphere, begin with cleansing your skin. Remove any makeup or product that you might have applied on your face for superior results. You can use oil-based cleansers to remove sebum, makeup, and any other product. Or, you can use water-based cleansers to remove all the sweat and impurities.
Nonetheless, you can also use your regular cleanser. Just be sure that your skin is squeaky-clean and ready for the next step.
- Steaming Process
The next step is to clean your pores using the steaming process. Along with opening the pores, steaming helps in softening the top layer of the skin. In addition, it will help in making exfoliation effective.
To steam, you need a bowl of hot water (remember, hot and not lukewarm). Then, you can hove your face over a bowl and cover it with a towel. It’ll help in trapping the steam in. Or, you can soak the towel in the bowl and put it over your face.
Make sure that you don’t over-steam, as it’ll remove natural oils from the face, making it extra dry. Also, be careful not to burn yourself when dealing with hot water, as nothing is more important than your safety.
To get healthy and glowing skin, you need to remove the dead skin cells by exfoliating. Massage your face in small circular motions, the small scrub particles of the products will help remove all the grime. Don’t forget to exfoliate your neck. For that matter, it is better to apply all the products on both the face and neck.
While exfoliating, focus on T-zone, as it has clogged pores and makes the skin oily. Exfoliation will help in opening the pores and making the skin texture more smooth and healthy.
- Hydrating Mask
Is it even a spa without a face mask? No! Therefore, you need to use a face mask after exfoliation. As your pores are open, it’ll help absorb the goodness of ingredients present in face masks.
Apply a generous amount of product on your face and neck (avoid eye area). Massage the product while applying. Let it completely dry, till then you can enjoy the calming music and relax your mind. Once the mask is dry, pat dry your hands and remove it while massaging in circular and upward motions. It’ll help in elevating the benefits, offering naturally blushing skin.
- Lock-In The Moisture
After removing the mask, you need to moisturize. It is one of the most crucial steps of skin care and spa. Try using face creams that contain natural ingredients like shea butter, fruit extracts, vitamin E, jojoba oil, argan oil, etc. Natural ingredients have no side effects; thus, they soothe sensitive skin and repair the skin from within.
Besides that, moisturizing also helps in regenerating skin cells and collagen promotion. Moreover, as you massage the goodness, it’ll also increase the blood flow. Thus, you’ll have healthy and hydrated skin.
- Pay attention to your hands.
Your hands help you do so much work, so you should also ensure that they are healthy and look beautiful as ever. First, soak your hand in lukewarm water for a while. It’ll help in softening the skin. After that, trim your nails (if you want to), oil around the nail cuticle, and remove the dead skin around the nail.
To finish, use a hand cream and paint the nails. It’ll ensure that your hands are not dry and look nice.
In addition to this, you should also wash your hands often. Otherwise, the germs on hand can cause break out and sometimes even fungal infections.
- Relax your eyes
Finally, you need to relax your eyes and enjoy the calm and soothing atmosphere. You can either use an eye mask to cool down your eyes, or you can go organic by using cucumber. It’ll help in reducing the puffiness and dark circles. Moreover, it’ll help in reducing the redness and hydrating the eyes.
In fact, if you ever wish to rejuvenate your skin quickly, you can use cucumber for that. It’ll help treat sunburn and will also brighten the face.
- Dry Brushing Session
If you want to make your spa session more beneficial for your body, try dry brushing. It’ll help exfoliate the dead skin cells from the body. Moreover, it’ll help in improving blood flow and stimulating collagen production. This will help in improving the skin elasticity, making it more toned.
Start from the feet and then work upward towards the neck. It’ll ensure that no body part is getting neglected.
