5 Steps to Create an Evening Spa Self-Care Ritual at Home to Relax & Unwind
Can’t get away for a spa day? Bring it home instead and enjoy your own self-care ritual to relax and unwind every evening. By ending your day on a positive note that focuses on your self-care, you’ll sleep better and feel refreshed for the next day ahead.
These 5 ideas will help you convert your bathroom into your own private spa sanctuary!
1. Focus on lighting
Ever notice how spas have a soothing ambience? You’ll want to recreate that same serene setting. If you don’t have dimmers for your bathroom lights, try lighting a few candles instead. You can get the LED ones so you can fully relax without worrying about a fire hazard too.
2. Set the mood
Along with calming lighting, the next step for your home spa experience is to think of engaging your other senses. Try using an essential oil diffuser or incense to give your bathroom that spa-like aroma. Music also helps so pick your favorite style of spa or meditation music to serve as your soundtrack.
3. Go for masks and exfoliants
Another reason you feel so relaxed and refreshed after some time at the spa is because they scrub away all those toxins that are bogging you down. A facial mask is perfect, though don’t forget to treat your hands and feet. Exfoliants should also be used to stimulate circulation and bring out the best in your skin.
4. Grab scalp and hair massage tools
While it may feel best when someone else is massaging your cares away, don’t forget about boosting blood flow to your scalp. A little nourishing mask for the hair can’t hurt either, allowing you to fully refresh yourself from head to toe.
5. Use a shower steamer
Perhaps the best way to tackle aromatherapy and soothe yourself ahead of bedtime is with a relaxing shower steamer. Scents like lavender, bergamot, and ylang ylang are well-known for their ability to help reduce stress and let you unwind. These are especially great if you don’t have an essential oil diffuser, allowing you to get in with the steam and truly soothe your cares away.
P.M. Shower Steamers will help you get that good night of sleep through ensuring you put that self-care back into your bedtime routine. Soon, it will be your body’s cue to simply relax from the moment the steam releases those calming aromatics.
All you need to do is put one tablet on the shower floor, turn on the hot water, and let the steam rise before you step in and enjoy your private spa retreat at home. Get yours today and start making that self-care ritual for the evening your top priority!
