Pamper Yourself… have a home spa day!

Pamper yourself – Have a home spa day!

A day at the spa is a great way to relax and indulge in some personal pampering. However, when times are tight we can’t all afford the luxury of spa prices – so why not have a home spa day? With a few simple tricks you can turn your bathroom into your very own spa for the day – and you don’t even need to get dressed to leave the house!

For a truly relaxing experience, ideally choose a day when you have a few hours of spare time to yourself. You won’t be able to fully relax with children, pets or partners popping in and out of the bathroom all the time! So pick a day when the kids are at school and you’re not expecting any visitors.

To set the scene, light a few scented candles and choose some soothing music – it doesn’t have to be dolphin sounds, just whatever makes you feel good. Slip into something warm and relaxing, like a cozy bathrobe and slippers, just as you would at a luxury spa.

A spa facial is a great way to give your face a really deep clean and leave it looking fresh and radiant. It’s easy to perform a spa facial at home using retail skin care products. First, use a Deep Action cream cleanser to remove any impurities from the skin. For congested pores, Biore pore strips are amazing – simply stick over your nose, leave to dry and then peel off to remove the blockages in your pores. So satisfying, and you’ll be amazed to see what’s on the strip afterwards!

For an even more authentic salon experience, try the Dermabrush Advanced Cleansing System, which comes with four attachments to deep cleanse, exfoliate, buff and polish the skin to leave it looking more youthful.

After cleansing, use a toner and then apply a clay mask over your face. This helps to open up the pores and detoxify your skin. As the mask sets, you can file your nails or simply lie back and relax!

Once your mask is removed, follow up with a quality moisturizer, such as the award-winning Olay Regenerist range. This is essential to hydrate and balance the equilibrium of your skin.

Now that your face is looking fresh as a daisy, it’s time to treat your body to some pampering treats! De-fuzz with a Gillette women’s razor, designed to glide over the contours of your skin and moisturize as it shaves. Or, if you don’t like to shave, try Nair Shower Power cream for a silky-smooth finish. Afterwards, slather your whole body in a rich body cream, like the deliciously-scented Nair Cocoa Butter lotion, to leave your skin feeling beautifully soft.

If you want an easy option, you can get all the kit for an indulgent home spa day in one handy gift basket, which contains everything you need to be a pampered princess – perfect as a gift for a special friend, or to treat yourself!
