Spring break is upon us, so use this time to relax! While enjoying no exams and papers for the next week, pamper yourself for a little relaxation. Being pampered is a necessity, however, spa prices can be outrageous! Spoil yourself during your time off with an “At Home Spa Day!” Keep reading to find out my favorite ways to relax and feel pampered from home!
Exfoliate- My favorite pampering tip is to exfoliate with a nice body scrub. Body scrubs can be expensive, so make your own from home! Here’s what you need for an easy at home scrub:
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup raw oatmeal
- 1 cup olive oil
Also check out my Gingerbread Body Scrub! It smells amazing and works like a charm!
Mani/Pedi- A perfect manicure and pedicure always makes me feel like a million bucks! Paint your nails and toes with your favorite color to immediately feel pampered!
Take a Bath- Nothing is better than a hot bath or shower to wash away stress from midterms. I love using Lush bath bombs or a nice bubble bath for added relaxation. Light a candle and drink a cup of hot tea while relaxing in the tub. Don’t forget to use the at-home exfoliating scrub mentioned above!
Hot Shower- Use your shower as an at-home sauna! Crank the temperature of your shower to the hottest setting to fill it with steam! After about 20 minutes, your shower will be filled with steam and automatically turned into a perfect sauna. I always feel refreshed after a steamy shower, so take advantage of it. Who needs to go to a spa when you can have your own steam room right in your house
Drink Lemon Water- One of my favorite ways to feel refreshed is to start my day with a tall glass of lemon water. Add a slice of lemon in a tall glass of water and enjoy!
Hair Treatment- Your hair needs a break after constantly using heat during the school days. Take your at-home pamper session as a time to strengthen your hair by leaving in a deep conditioner for a few hours. I love using this as a hair treatment to tackle the heat damage and strengthen those split ends.
Use these tricks to have an amazing at-home spa day! Save those extra dollars from going to the spa by having your own relaxation session in the comfort of your home. Everyone deserves to be pampered! Hope you enjoy loves!
