Self care, self quarantine – am I right? While we won’t have a real spa day anytime soon, we might as well through one of our own in the mean time! Here are some great things to make sure you do during your upcoming self care spa day.
Because what says, “It’s a self care spa day” quite like a hair mask? I’ve been using Lush’s Retread for years and absolutely love it. I’ll use this hair mask every other or every time before I wash my hair. On spa day occasions, I break out the big guns with the coconut oil. A nice oil concoction while relaxing through the rest of the spa day activities is a MUST.
A fun, relaxing torture device. Acupuncture has many benefits, I’ll let you Google that on your own, so I love incorporating this into a spa day. H*ll I incorporate it into every day. Fifteen to twenty minutes laying on this mat, focusing on breathing, listening to calming music (or nothing) is the definition of at home spa.
It’s not a successful spa day without some great drinks. Oddly enough, one of my favorite parts of a spa day is relaxing with a hot glass of tea before my treatment even begins. I’m a tea-fanatic so welcome to my personal stash. I have a wide spectrum of teas and others in my organizer and some loose leaf teas in the back. My favorite teas for a spa day are the Chamomile with Lemon and the Dandelion Root.
For me, my nails aren’t a priority. I don’t want to pay for someone to do them and I don’t really want to keep up on a nail polish that just chips everyday. That’s why I focus on growing healthy long nails with this polish. You apply every other day and it helps to strengthen my nails to the point where they are beautiful au natural.
I’m a rolling fiend and a don’t discriminate when it comes to my rollers. I bought this jade roller / gua sha about a year ago and I absolutely love them! They are nice for a spa day or even just day to day. It’s definitely a self care day when I break out my ice roller, a gift from my mother (thanks mom!). It’s so cooling and great for de-puffing, aka hangover cure (again, thanks mom).
