While it is a truly different experience being pampered at your favourite spa, setting up a home spa could be rewarding too! Good thing is, there are plenty of inspiration boards out there that could totally get you in the mood for decorating and prepping up for your dream bath.
We came up with a short checklist of what you should do to easily change from one setting to another, as well as the bath essentials that must always be in stock just in case you’ve got a guest to please, or simply when you want to indulge into a glorious pampering treat.
Think of themes that you could easily switch to. Having themes help in making each home spa experience a unique one because just like food, you can’t have the same viand everyday. Write them down on a piece of paper and think of 3 to 5 themes you’d love to start building (of course, you can’t buy all accessories in one shot!). Go to Pinterest and start pinning!
What’s in our mind? Garden filled with flowers or potpourri, vintage theme paired with great 60’s music, zen – minimalist style, river/beach, and a lot more!
1. Flowers galore
It’s not like you’re going to pick fresh flowers daily! Every once in a while, treat yourself to a romantic spa bath that’s made for the movies. Instead of letting those flowers wither, why not include them in your home spa regimen? The sender would surely be happier if they find out you did something extraordinary with the flowers.
Did you know? During the ancient times, they believed that putting rose in the bath water would soothe and heal physical and emotional pain.
2. The scent helps induce a relaxing feel.
Ever wonder why you always, always feel like dozing off while having your favourite treatment at the spa? Spas always make sure they have aromatherapy pots warming the entire place. Aromatherapy for Stress Relief
3. Dim the lights.
Invest in a dimmer which you can get at a local DIY shop and ask an electrician to install it for you. If you have a big space in your bathroom, why not use candles as decors? If you’re using tea-light candles, make sure you blow them all out before leaving the bathroom.
4. Take it away, maestro!
Depending on your mood, you may listen to different types of music to enjoy your bath even more. Some people prefer to listen to nature (birds chirping, flowing river, the sound of the wind) and some enjoy classical music.
5. Scrub it!
We have plenty of scrubs that you can choose from. Our Tropical Line has de-aging properties while our Silky Skin Body Scrub polishes all the rough areas of the body. Add Mystique Escape Bath Salt and immerse yourself in glorious aromatherapy. Don’t forget your face mask!
6. Cold cream
Here’s a simple trick. Place your moisturizing cream inside the fridge. Not only will you feel really good with the instant cold cream on your face, placing your skincare products inside the fridge will also prolong the products’ shelf life.
6. Happy Feet.
Show yourself some love. Learn how to perform basic massage on yourself. The best gift you can give yourself after a long day is a foot massage.
