Scheduling an appointment at the local day spa is extremely relaxing and refreshing. However, it is also expensive and not everyone can afford to visit on a regular basis. This doesn?t mean that you have to give up to relaxation and comfort you recently achieved at your spa visit. These home spa tips will get you through the time until you can schedule another professional spa visit.
Improve your bath experience
Taking a bubble bath at home can be especially relaxing, but it still does not compare to the spa. This is often because spas are full of relaxing scents and wonderful soaking bubbles. You can transform your own bathtub into the next best thing. Purchase some scented bath salts and create a relaxing ambiance in your bathroom. Light some of your favorite candles, turn out the lights, and play some low, soothing music. One of the advantages of your home bathtub over the spa? You don?t have to get out until you are ready.
Improve your sleep experience
Sleep is perhaps, the most important factor in reducing stress. If you are not getting enough sleep, it is likely that you are stressed. Even if you cannot arrange for a home massage, you can mimic the same comfortable linen of the massage table. Change out your home bedding for spa linen and microfiber sheets. After a long and exhausting day, you will enjoy the increased comfort of your home bedding. If floral scents relax you, consider using a bedding spray. Scent is very important to relaxation and comfort. According to a marketing study by BVA Group, 78% of customers exposed to a store?s signature scent while shopping said they planned to return to that place of business. Purchase a bottle of your favorite scent from your spa.
Schedule a home massage
Home massages are possible. You can rent a massage therapist by the hour. They bring all of the needed massage equipment and some might even bring professional spa equipment to further relax you. The most common reason for scheduling a massage is for stress relief. In fact, approximately 28% of people report receiving a massage to relieve stress. If you are feeling especially stressful, consider scheduling a single massage appointment at your favorite spa. You don?t have to pay for the full spa experience, but you can utilize the professional spa equipment for your single massage.
Do a home manicure or pedicure
Manicures and pedicures are other common services at day spas. In addition to the beautiful designs, many people also enjoy the relaxing products used during these procedures. Professional spa equipment provides heat and lotion to the hands and feet. You can mimic the spa manicure and pedicure by soaking your hands and feet in a deep tub and then using a favorite lotion. Finish off your pedicure by applying your favorite color of nail polish. Nail products are very affordable and the process of doing a home manicure and pedicure can be incredibly relaxing.
Plan a home makeover night
There is something exciting about full makeovers. You don?t need professional spa equipment to plan a home makeover night that is full of brow tinting, eyebrow waxing, and facial masks. Fill the room with your favorite candles and smells. Turn on your favorite relaxing music. By the end of the night, you will feel like you just spent the evening at an expensive spa. You can also invite your friends and family over to join in your spa night with you, or choose to do the spa night alone.
An increasing focus on wellness results in more than 179 million Americans visiting spas in 2016. While spa visits are advantageous for relaxation and calming purposes, many cannot afford to go weekly. While you wait to schedule your next spa appointment, turn your home into the same relaxing spa environment. Plan a makeover night, schedule a home massage, improve your sleep and bathing experiences, and make it a point to find comfort in your own home.
