With months of high anxiety and limited social interaction, it’s safe to say we could all use some
well-deserved self-care right now. A little pampering can do wonders for your wellbeing, and there’s
been no more appropriate time to indulge in luxury spa treatments than right now. Lockdown
restrictions and Covid-19 anxieties mean that a lot of us are still avoiding the spa, but with our tips, a
little creativity and some DIY skills, it’s totally possible to bring the spa to you. From luxurious baths
to the perfect DIY facial, our At Home Spa Guide has you covered.
1. Set Up Your Spa Stations
In order to add a professional feel to your at-home spa day, it’s important to have everything
planned, laid out and organised beforehand to avoid feeling stressed or dishevelled. Remember, this
is supposed to be relaxing! You don’t want to be endlessly searching for what you need amongst
scattered products and attempting to organise everything as you go.
Consider setting up different stations to make the process smoother. Maybe the bathroom for body
and hair care, the bedroom for facial care and nails etc. Once you’ve established your spaces,
thoughtfully pick out the products you’ll use for each treatment and set them up in a way that feels
organised and satisfying.
2. Clear Your Mind
Before beginning your treatments, allow yourself to clear your mind of any stresses and worries. This
time is all about taking care of yourself, including your mental health! Your mental wellbeing is
precious, so make sure to allow yourself this time to stop thinking about any external stressors and
responsibilities so that you can fully enjoy the experience. Try practicing mindfulness and allow
thoughts to come and go without judgement.
3. Light a Candle and Spruce Up Your Bath.
An at-home spa simply isn’t complete without a luxurious soak in the bath. Light a candle, play some
relaxing music, dim the lights and pick out your favourite bath products. Try adding bubble bath,
bath salts, bath bombs and essential oils to create a replenishing and aromatherapeutic soak that
truly works wonders for your skin. This is your time to truly sit back and relax, so make sure your is
environment stress-free! Turn off your notifications, declutter your space and remove any
distractions to allow for the perfect spa-like experience.
4. Body Care
It’s just as important to take care of the skin on your body as it is the skin on your face. After some
time relaxing in the bath, it’s time to begin your first treatment! There’s no better feeling than fresh,
smooth and soft skin. So, for the perfect body care treatment, a good routine is to cleanse, exfoliate,
shave if desired and moisturise to finish off.

5. Hair Treatments
With previous months spent unable to visit the hairdressers, most of us could definitely use some
extra hair-TLC! While we may not be able to give ourselves a salon-grade cut and colour, we can
definitely improve the condition of our hair with a good haircare routine and at-home hair
treatments. Start off by washing and conditioning your hair, and don’t forget the importance of
investing in a good shampoo and conditioner formulated for your hair type – it really makes a
difference! As a treatment, apply a deeply conditioning hair mask and leave it on either while you
relax in the bath or while using a face mask to achieve that salon shine from the comfort of your

attention, so this is the perfect time to bring out your fancy indulgent products and your favourite
