Try lightning as many candles as you can. Scented candles will be a plus. Use essential oil that smells like a spa. Lavender oil can be a good choice as it used in most of the spas. After setting the music and fragrance, pull out your slippers and towels. When you are done with the things mentioned, you are ready to start your spa day.
Before starting your spa day, make sure that you have your spa drink with you. This may sound a little weird, but you have no idea how good this drink can turn out to be. Make your drink according to the season. For example, you can add a little strawberry in water with some mint and lemon or if you want to have something sweet try adding some sugar in it. Make a jar full of this drink and sip it all through the day.
Scrubbing is one of the most important parts of a spa day. You can choose the scrub based on your skin type. There are two types of scrubs, salt-based scrubs and sugar-based scrubs. If you have, sensitive skin goes for a sugar-based scrub. You can also make these scrubs at home. All you have to do is take some sugar in a bowl and add a drop essential oil in it, and your scrub is ready. You can use this scrub all over your body. Take some of the scrubs in your hand, add some water and start massaging in on your body with the tips of your finger. Massage until the sugar particles melt. Massage for a good 10 – 15 minutes. After the massage, use a cotton cloth or wipes to clean up your body. Make sure to clean yourself up really good as the sugar in the scrub can take a little while to clean.
After scrubbing, massage your body with good massage cream or cleansing milk and in the meanwhile make sure that you get your steamer ready. If you do not have a steamer at home, boil some water and take it out in a bowl. Put your face over the bowl and cover it with a towel. Make sure that your face is at an appropriate distance from the bowl as it can burn your skin a little. Take the steam for a good 10 to 15 minutes. After taking the steam, make sure you take a break for 5 minutes and let your skin get back to its normal temperature. This will help your pores to close.
After all the steps mentioned above, make sure that you draw yourself a good warm bath. This will help you relax your body and will make you feel fresh and amazing. Try to soak your hand and feet in the warm water with some salt before the bath, as it will help you get away from the cracked feet and dead skin. After taking a bath, dry your body with a towel and use good body butter all over the body. It will keep your body moisturized and hydrated.
