Is there anything more relaxing than a day at the spa? It’s such a treat to be pampered. So why limit the stress-relieving benefits to special occasions? Recreating the spa experience in the luxury of your own home is easier than ever.
It is a simple yet powerful practice of self-care at the end of a long day. The small acts of drawing a bath and lighting a candle are proven mood boosters and stress-busters — and that’s undoubtedly something needed in our fast-paced lives.
Here are a few easy ways to create a relaxing and luxurious at-home spa experience.
Set The Mood with Candles
There’s no denying the peace that comes with lighting a candle. Part of the relaxing quality of a spa is the uplifting scent, and ambiance candles create you as soon as you step foot inside, and your home should be no different.
Before you draw a bath, light a candle to set the mood. Soy wax candles that are free of harsh chemicals and burn clean for up to seven hours will give you the most benefit.
Each of Treazured Scentz artisan-crafted soy wax candles [link to product page] burns clean and emanates a soothing aroma that ignites and renews the spirit and mind. Our collections feature the finest quality natural soy wax and premium fragrance oils to craft each candle for a luxurious at-home spa experience.
And because they never burn hot, our candles melting wax transforms into a nourishing massaging oil for your hands, feet, and elbows.
Scrub Away Dull Skin
Speaking of skincare, no at-home spa treatment is complete without a pampering routine. Both exfoliating is critical for maintaining healthy, glowing skin.
Exfoliation removes dead skin cells from the outer layers of the skin. According to Healthline, it is beneficial for removing dry or dull skin, increasing blood circulation, and brightening and improving your skin's appearance.
Of course, not all exfoliates, and moisturizers are created equal. While mainstream scrubs often contain irritating ingredients that could strip the skin of its natural oils, Treazured Scentz high-quality body scrubs [link to product page] are made with all-natural sugars and butters, and oils.
Our proprietary blend is infused with hydrating Vitamin E works to repair uneven tones and blemishes. Simply massage the scrub into your skin and rinse it away to unveil moisturized and soft skin. In addition, our line of aromatic scrubs gently removes dirt and dead skin for an illuminating glow.
Moisturize Your Way to a Healthy Glow
After every exfoliating session, it's important to moisturize to rehydrate and heal the skin.
It is a crucial skincare step if you want to truly have beautiful skin day after day, year after year.
To get the most out of your moisturizer, first prime your skin. While in the shower, use an exfoliating body scrub a few times a week. According to Health Magazine, removing dead skin cells before adding a moisturizing lotion or cream may help your skin absorb the product and increase hydration.
Then, within three minutes of getting out of the bath or shower, apply lotion to trap the moisture on your skin. Carefully crafted to hydrate and renew the skin, our handmade emollient body balms are the perfect after-shower pamper.
Our emollients are designed to lock in moisture, creating a barrier to soothe and protect the upper layers of the skin without a greasy feel. The body emollients soften dry, rough, flakey skin, making it look and feel better.
By adding this step to your regular routine, you can ditch dry, itchy skin for good.
Make a DIY Matcha Face Mask
A relaxing facial is the hallmark of a spa retreat. Often pricy, facials performed at a day spa can be a rare luxury for most, but you can get the same glowing results for a fraction of the price in your own home.
This four-ingredient matcha face mask is super simple to whip up and has incredible hydrating benefits. Plus, matcha (a green tea) has been proven to clear skin, protect against sun damage, and even prevent premature aging.
Joanna Vargas, celebrity facialist and founder of Joanna Vargas Salons and Skin Care, shared her DIY Matcha Face Mask recipe with Glamour Magazine.
“I have a great recipe in my new book, Glow From Within, for a matcha glow mask," she said. “It strengthens your capillary walls and increases circulation, giving your skin a smooth, pillowy softness.”
To DIY it, mix 1½ teaspoons of water, one tablespoon matcha or green tea, 1½ teaspoon honey, and one tablespoon olive oil. Apply it for 10 minutes, then rinse off to enjoy the hydrated results.
Nail The Ending
The at-home spa experience is not complete without manicured nails. It — literally — is the final polish to your me-time escape. But, if you’re not naturally great at DIYing your manicure, You Tuber Jen on her wildly popular channel, Head to Toe, share this incredibly easy-to-follow tutorial.
The helpful tips are a game-changer for the at-home manicure. And don't forget to give yourself ample time to let them completely dry.
Just because you're not able to head to the spa doesn't mean you can't get the same relaxing results at home. Just make sure you have the basics you need, like fragrant soy wax candles, all-natural body scrubs, and balms, and steal away a few hours of interrupted you time!
