I don’t know about you but I’m definitely feeling the pinch with the cost of living constantly rising. But just because I’m watching my money doesn’t mean I can’t treat myself to a spa day. It’s just my spa days are on a budget and in my home.
The benefits of having an at home spa are that you don’t have to spend money and time on travelling to the experience, and you get to choose your own products. The most important advantage is allowing yourself a moment to simply unwind and take a break from the stresses of everyday life. Just relax and be you!
· STEP 1
First of all, choose a room for your at home spa. There’s no need for a deep clean but maybe hide the kids toys or the work laptop. Spending time in a cluttered and disorganized environment can make you feel overwhelmed and anxious. Too much visual stimulus can overload the brain, leading to feelings of stress. Tidying up can also give us a sense of control over our situation helping to create balance. This will allow you to experience some time to have a place of sanctuary and calm where your main focus is you.
· STEP 2
Now we can work on the ambience of your spa space. If possible, dim the lights or turn off any overhead lights and turn on a lamp. You can also light a candle of your choice. Pelle Naturale has many 100% soy candles to choose from. Each one is scented with essential oils such as lemongrass, peppermint, and lavender. Two candles that would be perfect for an at home spa are the floral relief candle which contains sage, lavender, and geranium essential oils. Or the anti-anxiety candle that is infused with bergamot, lavender and ylang ylang.
· STEP 3
Make yourself a heart-warmingly hot or refreshingly ice-cold drink. Whether you prefer hot or cold environments make the temperature and the drinks to suit your needs and moods. I love coffee but often caffeine can make us feel anxious, so we suggest trying a non caffeinated drink for total calm and relaxation.
· STEP 4
Put on some of your favourite background music and grab a healthy snack.
· STEP 5
And with all those steps completed it is now time for the stars of the show:
o Aloe Vera Foot Mask
The soothing qualities of aloe vera mean that it has so many skin benefits from head to toe. Taking that literally you can start your at home spa with the aloe vera foot mask. Read the instructions and follow them carefully.
o Restore – Herbal Brightening Toner
This toner is a simple but super luxurious, refreshing, and relaxing addition to your at home spa day. Simply apply to a cotton pad or ball and apply to your face. It will feel light and awakening in an instant. Enjoy the moment.
o Heal – Honey Amber Exfoliating Scrub
For this step you will need to prepare a bowl of warm clean water or have a sink near by to wash of the excess face scrub.
The heal exfoliating scrub contains both honey and amber, this product looks and feels like a professional spa product. It’s full of rejuvenating ingredients that will help to boost both the moisture in your skin and your vibes.
o Glow – 12% Vitamin C+ Serum
This is a key daily product which is also soothing and luxurious making it great for your at home spa. You only need a few drops either rubbed into your hands then onto your face or you can use the pipet to apply them directly to your face. Then gently smooth them in with the palms of your hands or the tips of your fingers. Try to do this by making gentle circular motions.
This serum is a rich liquid with a velvety texture and when applied it will give your skin the smooth, even, and glowing texture that we’re all looking for.
o Aloe Vera Face Mask
As we said before aloe vera is a traditional ingredient that has great skin benefits from head to toe. Having started with the aloe foot mask you should also use the Pelle Naturale aloe face mask. This one time use face mask is great for at home day spa as its absolutely packed with minerals, vitamins and multiple botanical extracts. The mask can be left on for up to 20 minutes, truly giving you time to kick back and relax. Listen to some music, take a few sips of your drink, and have a scroll on social media.
· STEP 6
Once your face mask time is completed you can gently remove it and discard both the mask and any of the outer packaging. The aloe vera face mask is full of serum, don’t wash this off. You should gently massage any excess serum into your face and neck in circular motions.
· STEP 7
Finally remember not to rush as your foot mask can left on for up to 1 hour. However, you could also remove it after just 30 minutes. When you remove your foot mask there may be some excess aloe vera serum left over. Don’t wash this off. Massage it into your feet or let it dry naturally.
And your home spa is completed. I hope you feel relaxed and renewed, ready to face a new day with new energy. You can shop all these products at www.pelle-naturale.com/shop-all
