With all the extra ‘free time’ we’re suddenly enjoying, we’re here to tempt you away from decorating and batch cooking and remind you to make time for yourself with a pamper day at home!
So sit back, relax, and put yourself first with our pamper yourself at home ideas – here’s our ultimate guide to creating a spa day at home.
Unwind with a home facial
Whether you're basking in 5* spa luxury (there’s no lockdown on dreaming) or having a pamper at home, the first step in your routine is to sit back and unwind with your favourite face mask.
From smoothing to purifying and even hydrating - we’ve got the one for you! So pop the kettle on (herbal tea of course).
Bathe in bliss with a bath bomb
No home spa would be complete without the top-to-toe indulgence of a skin-nourishing hot bath, and it couldn’t be easier to refresh your body and soothe aching muscles with our scented, fizzing bath bombs. Infused with natural oils and suitable for all skin types, they’re a treat for your skin and your senses.
Take care of your dry skin with a gentle body scrub and finish your ritual of hydrating the skin with our body moisturisers.
So swap bath toys and shower squeegees for your favourite candles and lay back in your homemade utopia. It’s time to feel good!
We couldn’t share a list of home spa ideas without including a mani-pedi! If your hands and feet are anything like ours, they are long overdue for some TLC, so we’d recommend starting with a coat of 7-in-1 Nail Treatment to prep your nails. Vitamins C and E will help to restore your nails whilst the strengthening formula fills ridges and acts as a base coat too!
Now get yourself ready for a tough task – picking your nail colour! Whether you choose matching hands and feet or a striking colour clash, there’s plenty of choice with Gel Shine Nail Enamel and our Ultimate Gel Shine Natural Curing Top Coat will help that salon finish last up to 7 days! Get ready with us and paint your nails!
The power of a scented candle
Turn off the lights, play some relaxing music, light your favourite candles and just drift away! You'll be amazed how a few candles placed strategically around the room can make a difference and help you to unwind after a busy week. You can choose from the great variety of different scented candles on the market. Get your favourite scent, ease your mind and relax.
Essential oils and the pleasure of aromatherapy
Filling your home or your bathroom with calming scents and fragrances can help you relax your body and mind. Choosing the right essential oils for you may be a challenge sometimes, just because there are so many different scents. Here are some of the most common essential oils and their effects:
- Lavender: this floral scent has proven its therapeutic qualities through the years. Widely used in yoga and meditation practices, lavender can help you deal with anxiety and stress and sleep better.
- Lemongrass oil: if you've been working out too hard in the gym and you have sore muscles, then lemongrass oil is the right choice for you. Often used in spa centres, this oil will relax your tense muscles and ease your anxiety.
- Chamomile oil: this is another anxiety relief oil that can also help if you have trouble falling asleep. Just be careful because some people may be allergic to chamomile.
Read a good book
Grab your favourite book and just sink into another world.
What could be better than having a quiet night with something good to read? Easy and efficient, reading an interesting book will take your mind off your daily troubles.
So why don't you put on your favourite dressing gown, grab a book and sit comfortably in your chair?
No home spa kit is complete without a touch of indulgence and our Planet Spa collection offers you just that. It has everything you need to take you from spa day to spa night as you lather yourself in body butter and hand cream before spritzing your bed with the sweet dream-inducing pillow mist.
Or, if you’re not quite ready for the land of nod, why not try another of our pamper night ideas? Treat yourself to a calming reed diffuser and curl up with your favourite book or magazine?
