Who says you cannot create a “professional” spa day at home? No matter who you are or what you do, we could all use a little pampering — especially now that it’s Women’s month. Huddle up your “besties” or mother to take a break with some pampering, a physical and mental vacation for Women’s Day.
Give yourself and the ladies a professional-level spa day in the comfort of your home with simple treatments like painting nails, soaking your feet, facials, and foot massages with an exfoliating scrub.
Take it up a notch by adding little extras, like making your own “spa water” with lime slices, lighting some scented candles, putting on a playlist of relaxing music, and getting comfortable in a big fluffy robe and slippers while sipping on delicious drinks.
The good news is that you probably already have all these products on hand, but most of them can be bought at your local pharmacy or supermarket. Here’s a few budget-saving pampering tips for a professional and unforgettable spa day at home:
1. “Spa water”
“Spa water” — water infused with flavours from citrus or cucumber and maybe use some to put together a refreshing drink.
Light some candles beforehand to add to the ambiance, as the gentle smell of candles will add to the relaxing experience.
3. Soak feet
Grab some epsom salts to dissolve in water and soak your feet. It’s also easy to use, easy to find, and inexpensive.
4. Paint nails
Give yourself a manicure, which will make you feel extra special. You and the ladies can take turns to paint each others nails.
Put on an exfoliating mask to help rejuvenate your face and remove some dead skin.
