It's understandable if having a spa day at home isn't your top priority right now, but it's also a completely normal response to seek solace in the control of a beauty routine. Taking 20 minutes to draw a bath or light a candle has actual stress-relieving advantages, and it's something we could all benefit from. This isn't to say you have to make your bathroom into a full-fledged wellness center. 

Here are a few tips to achieve the best at-home facial:

  1. Create a relaxing atmosphere
  2. Cleanse the skin well
  3. Steam the skin
  4. Exfoliate the skin to make it smooth and bright
  5. Massage the mask into the skin
  6. Moisturize the skin

DIY Spa Day Facial Treatments

A home spa day can be as simple as putting on a sheet mask or indulging in a muscle-soothing soak to relieve tension caused by sitting at your makeshift workplace (read: couch) all day. It's also a good opportunity, if you have the funds, to consider your local spas that have been affected by the coronavirus pandemic. You can help them stay in business right now by purchasing certificates or acquiring some of their own items.

How to set up an at-home spa?

1. Set up the space

Clear up the space where you'll be relaxing. Make it a soothing environment by making it comfy.

2. Gather all the required supplies

No one likes to take a break from their serenity to go obtain what they need. Make sure you have all of your treatments and supplies on hand and ready to go.

3. Adjust the lightning

To be surrounded by a soft glow, dim the lighting or add some candles.

4. Add some mood music

Ask Alexa (or a similar voice assistant) to play a soothing playlist. Music has a significant impact on one's mood.

5. Dress comfortably

Put on your most comfortable stretch pants or a plush robe. This is a crucial step, believe us!
