After a busy day in the yard creating pallet furniture or doing yard work, you could use a home spa day! We all need to get some pampering into our lives but it is not always practical to spend time and money in a spa. So which relax lotion should you buy, and how do you recreate the full spa experience in your own home?
What You Need for a Home Spa
First up a spa experience is all about comfort, relaxation, pampering, and indulging yourself with time in a stress-free environment.
Turn off your phone and make sure you are not going to be disturbed. Nothing spoils a pampering experience more than being pestered by your family or having to answer phone calls from work.
Take a leisurely bath with lots of lovely fragrant bath bubbles or oil. Illuminate the bathroom with scented candles and play some peaceful music to get yourself into a Zen-like zone.
Plan your activities. Maybe give yourself a facial and prepare some hot towels to add to the sense of luxury.
When you visit the spa, one of the most important skin products is the relax lotion. This nourishes the skin and is filled with relaxing aromas that seem to take away the stress of the day.
There are some wonderful products out there used by professional spas. Although they may smell nice, in many cases these products contain harmful chemicals, such as parabens and sodium laurate, which could dry out your skin.
