5 Ways To Create ways An At-Home Spa | Ativo Skincare

In the hustle and bustle of everyday life, it is easy to forget how important taking time for oneself can be. Especially at home! So many people do not take time to relax and unwind from the stresses of everyday life. We live in a world where we are constantly pushing ourselves to do more and achieve more, but at what cost? Is it really worth all that stress if you're not even enjoying your success? What's the point then? We want to make it easy for you so we've put together 5 ways that you can create a relaxing spa evening at home. From the traditional bath to adding aromatherapy and relaxing music - discover how you can turn your bathroom into a mini-spa.

It's Friday at 8 pm, and you need to unwind from a long week. Here are 5 easy ways to create an at-home spa experience.

Setting the Stage

The water is at the perfect temperature. You have a cup of tea next to you on the edge of the tub. There are candles lit all around you, giving off a warm glow that compliments your at-home spa evening perfectly. It may sound like an impossible scenario, but your relaxing evening at home is about to be magic.

Relaxing Music

People are often at their most relaxed when they are listening to music. For your at-home spa evening, turn on some soothing classical or jazz music to set the mood for a relaxing evening in your bathtub. Music instantly calms the mind. Music can be uplifting in times of stress, or it can be relaxing and aid sleep. Whatever you prefer, music is an easy way to create the perfect at-home spa experience.

Aromatherapy candles or Essential Oils

One of our favourite at-home spa tips is adding aromatherapy candles to your at-home spa evening. The aromas of the candle will float in your bath and can help you relax and unwind. Scent is highly connected to emotion so using soothing scents like lavender, jasmine or vanilla can induce the most calming feelings. Essential oils offer the same calming scents and can be used instead of a candle. Never put essential oils directly into bathwater. Use a powerless essential oil burner to create a beautiful aroma.

Milk Soak and Bath Salts

Milk baths and bath salts at home are a great way to relax at the end of a long work week and create a spa-like bath. Milk baths help soothe and soften the skin through mineral rich ingredients. Bath salts are loaded with vitamins and minerals essential for the skin. Try adding two to three scoops of our Coconut Milk Soak or Pink Coconut Mineral Milk Soak for the dreamiest softest skin. The choice is yours for how you want to create this at-home spa day.

Face Mask

One of our favourite tips is adding a face mask to your at-home spa day. Steamy warm water gently cleanses your pores, facilitating a deep cleaning effect. To rinse, place a warm face towel with a drop of jasmine or vanilla essential oil and lay on your skin. Breath deeply, taking in the scent and allowing the face mask to melt so it can be easily wiped away. This deepens your relaxation at the end of a long work week without spending a fortune at an expensive spa! 

Body Massage

At the end of a long bath, moisturizing your skin will set the tone for a dreamy night's sleep. The moisturizing effects of our whipped cloud-like body butter will nourish the skin, leaving it feeling soft all over. It's a treat after you've had a long bath. Massage the whipped body butter into your feet and calves helping to release any leftover tension from the day.

There are many easy ways to transform your bathroom into a mini spa. From the traditional bath and moisturizing skin to adding aromatherapy candles or essential oils for that extra relaxation boost - we hope these 5 tips will help you create an at-home spa experience without spending a fortune on expensive treatments. It's never been easier than it is now to indulge in all of those typical spa rituals from the comfort of your own home! What’s your favourite way to relax?
