How to create a DIY Spa Night
With a busy schedule and rising treatment prices, spa days tend to take a back seat on the list of priorities. Practicing self care daily should be a priority in our lives. Taking at least one or two nights a month to focus on relaxing and pampering yourself at home with a few good treatments will make a huge difference in your mind body and soul. Here’s how:
- Start by setting the mood. Put on some relaxing music, light some candles, and pour yourself a glass of wine (optional, but recommended!).
- Once you’ve got the ambiance set, draw your bath and get in a good dry brushing session. Brushing the skin while it’s dry helps to exfoliate and increases blood circulation.
- Once you’re done, hop in the tub and throw on your masks! Start with a Rosie Glow Face Mask and DIY hair mask. Here’s one of our go-to EASY recipes for nourishing, shiny hair:
- 1 Tbs Coconut Oil
- 2 Tbs Honey
- 1 Tbs Apple Cider Vinegar
- Melt honey and coconut oil together on the stove until well combined and warm.
- Transfer to a bowl and stir in apple cider vinegar.
- Clip hair and apply the mask in sections using a brush.
- Pull hair into a loose bun and let sit for 20 minutes.
- Wash with normal shampoo and warm water.
While you’re still in the bath, be sure to exfoliate your body with our Sugar Body Scrub.
Post bath, lather up in Body Butter to really nourish and moisturize your skin. Tip: Massaging in the butter while your skin is still a little damp will help lock in that moisture.
- To keep in theme with moisturizing, add a high quality facial serum, like our Daily Repair, While you let that soak in, do a simple lip mask using just a dab of coconut oil mixed with honey. Leave it on for at least 10 minutes.
- End your spa night with a calming cup of tea - we love this Chamomile Latte recipe:
- 3/4 cup water
- 3/4 cup almond milk
- 2 chamomile tea bags
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- In a small, covered saucepan, bring water to a boil. Turn off heat, add chamomile tea bags and steep 5 to 7 minutes for a strong brew (recommended).
- Remove tea bags and add almond milk, maple syrup and cinnamon.
- Return the saucepan back to medium heat and stir continuously until hot, but not boiling.
- Turn off heat, pour into your favorite mug and enjoy.
- Optional: Use a milk frother to create a layer of foam for your latte.
Set a goal to repeat this at least once per month!
